The Hippiest... that's another thing right?

I was a hipster before people even know what hipsters were yo!

Can I be a hipster if I only listen to music after the mainstream abandons it?

#6 Edited by CyborgDuo (105 posts) -

I would, without a doubt, identify myself as a hipster. I've spent the last week fiddling with my typewriter, listening to to the upcoming Passion Pit album (Gossamer, releasing July 24, and both I and, if initial opinions are to be believed, Patrick would recommend it highly), and taking pictures of vinyl records I bought at the Brown Elephant resale shop in Chicago. I'm proud to be who I am. However, I often see a negative connotation behind the term.

Are you a hipster? If so, what makes you identify yourself that way? Are you proud of it?

EDIT: You can sample Gossamer here (of course it's on NPR!) http://www.npr.org/2012/07/15/156545328/first-listen-passion-pit-gossamer?sc=tw&cc=twmp

Only if you find your enjoyment of the music ironic.

I'd consider myself a gaming hipster if that didn't imply I play games like Johann Sebastian Joust. If there are multiple types of gaming hipsters, I'm not that one.

No. I like lots of stuff hipsters like but my jeans, they ain't skinny.

#11 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

No, but I'd like to be.

Wait, so if we have normal jeans.. we're not one of them? Woohoo, I'm safe!

@CyborgDuo You forgot the option, " What the fuck did you call me?". I live in Austin, it's full of hipsters, I am not one of them. And, I'm not just jealous cause I can't grow facial hair. I swear.

That makes you a human being with hobbies. The fact that you seem real eager to label yourself as a hipster is weird.

I'm pretty sure skinny jeans and a vneck are the required uniform, otherwise the hipster cops get after you. You don't want that. They just follow you around referencing movies and bands you've never heard of and rolling their eyes at everything you do.

#17 Posted by WMWA (1160 posts) -

And yeah, people tend to call me a hipster. I don't get pissed, but I think it's pretty dumb. =\

#18 Edited by RIDEBIRD (1230 posts) -

My quite specific, and yes, cutting edge interest in certain types of music would make me very classifiable as a hipster. I also really look down on mainstream adaptations of my music taste, for example, brostep. But that's because it's generally fucking awful and becomes popular way after the interesting era ended and everyone has moved on.

Other then that, not really no. I just look like a dude and I'm too fat and comfortable for skinny jeans.

#19 Posted by _Zombie_ (1462 posts) -

@TheSouthernDandy: Phew. I think I'm good.

#20 Posted by Clonedzero (4093 posts) -

No one knows, not even the hipsters. But the ones who aren't still dislike them, rightfully so.

#22 Posted by CaLe (3916 posts) -

I have facial hair, but I don't care for music or particular types of clothes. I think I might be a 反俗精神.

No?

In Sydney, being a hipster is referred to as "living in Newtown", because that's where we store them all so they can interbreed and form a race of super-hipsters

#25 Posted by SarjuTheRapper (279 posts) -

probably but like fuck it

#26 Posted by laserbolts (5314 posts) -

I don't listen to radio music so I'm not sure. Maybe?? Makes no difference to me either way.

#27 Posted by Bellum (2944 posts) -

"Hipster" is the new emo, and it's still stupid as fuck. :D

#28 Posted by Muerthoz (347 posts) -

I dislike most things that are "mainstream" but that's about it.

#29 Posted by mosespippy (4051 posts) -

You could call me a hipster and I wouldn't be offended but I'm not the hipsteriest of hipsters. I don't wear ironic t-shirts but I do try to approach fashion in a different way than Frank Nextguy and Joe Anybody.

#30 Posted by Oobir (65 posts) -

I live in the suburbs of the American Midwest, and thus cannot be a hipster.

Pretty much this. Hipsters have a lot of things right, except fashion.

Also, if you describe yourself as a hipster, then you kinda fail at being one. Hipsterism is a bit like Fight Club in that regard.

#32 Posted by aurahack (2265 posts) -

I like to think I'm not, but then everyone around me points out that I listen to shit no one listens to and likes things everyone thinks are stupid.

And then they call me a hipster.

And then I am cry.

I never actually answered this.

I'm not a hipster in any way, really.

In fact, I'm bringing back the term "SNAG"

#34 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

I would never call myself a hipster but I have gotten called a hipster because the music I like, the movies I watch, the way I dressed for a while.

#35 Posted by Demoskinos (14589 posts) -

I was a hipster before it was cool to be a hipster.

#36 Posted by DukesT3 (1893 posts) -

My perception of being a hipster is that its expensive. I seem to listen to bands no ones ever really heard of but my circle of friends is probably like.. four people. I probably was when I was 20 now I'm just a square with no idea with whats cool.

#37 Posted by Roomrunner (792 posts) -

hipster is the new emo.

Which means those of us who have thick glasses because of very poor vision can't catch a break.

#38 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

No, I am just a filthy nerd.

#39 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

I'm just a guy who likes stuff. If liking that stuff makes me a hipster or not then so be it.

I think it's time to terminate "hipster" from the world's lexicon. It means absolutely nothing. Stop saying it. Stop calling people it. It's fucking dumb.

#43 Posted by erinfizz (1048 posts) -

Yes. Unequivocally. But I don't take any of it other than the PBR drinking very seriously. :)

I'm not a hipster.

I'm an overly critical, opinionated asshole.

I've been called a hipster MANY times but I don't dress like one.

I don't wear plastic glasses or skinny jeans...

You're not hipster if you like music that no one knows about.

You're hipster if you ...

a.) Love Irony. You'll wear a PETA shirt while chomping down on a succulent, juicy McRib while dragging a dead dog on a leash while walking down the street so everyone can see. They tend to be huge attention whores.

b.) Shop at Urban Outfitters or thrift stores just so you can brag about how low pricing/dirty/tacky/cheap your clothing is. They try so hard to appear not to care.

c.) Intentionally find music that know one likes because you feel like liking big bands/musicians is for "the sheep". It should also be noted that hipsters abandon bands after they become semi-famous, even if their music hasn't changed or they haven't sold out. Hipsters will also brag about their music and assume you're beneath them if you listen to anyone even remotely famous or popular.

d.) Hipsters love photography and art. They will pretend to be deep, charismatic and creative but in reality they are actually just a bunch of whiny mid-twenties and teens who don't know how to do anything other than copy things hey have seen on the internet. The mustache index finger was their invention as well as the "GOD IS FIERCE" t-shirts. It should also be noted that Hipsters can be hurt with iron, holy water and ram horn. They also can't pass any line of salt, so be weary of breakage from the wind/rain etc. if trying to keep a hipster out of your home.

This has been "KNOW YOUR SHIT!" with your host Dexter Morgan. See you next week.
