The funniest part about hipsters is that they never realize they are hipsters. I don't mind the fact that they are hipsters but I find it hilarious when they try to deny it.

Depends. The term "hipster" has become so nebulous it is nearly meaningless, but I'll say this: Some people really try to be hipsters. They wear flannel, vests, funny hats, tight pants, have mustaches and/or elaborate beards, ride fixed gear bikes, are annoyingly political, play the accordion, have shitty tattoos, listen to bands you've never heard of, complain about anything popular, ect. I won't try to define what makes these people unequivocal hipsters, but you know them.

Some aspects of hipster culture have entered the "mainstream," or were never very "hipster" to begin with and were merely appropriated by hipsters. Often being genuinely attracted to these bits of culture gets you labeled a hipster. I know some dudes who hunt and four wheel and fish a lot. You know, outdoorsy types, but not "let's get back to nature" types. They wear heavy flannel and have beards. If you saw them out and about, you might think they were hipsters. Not so.

I have been accused of being a hipster for riding a bike (not a fixie though!), listening to "hipster" music (though I don't listen to "hipster" jams exclusively), liking "non-mainstream" films like Drive and Werckmeister Harmonies (but I'll enjoy Avengers with the best of 'em!), and reading. Since when did riding a bike, enjoying many kinds of music and movies, and reading become the domain of the hipster? It seems the term is thrown around more and more to lazily dismiss those who have disparate interests. Your nearly tautological argument that hipsters never realize they are hipsters seems to border on the same kind dismissiveness. I am not a hipster, yet according to you, by denying so it seems likely I am just a hipster who doesn't know it. When hipsters become self aware, are they no longer hipsters?

You "HATE" a video game?

Do you have hair? You must be a hipster ! Wait, is that a nose you have in the middle of your face? Hipster!

#68 Posted by PenguinDust (12499 posts) -

After reading the OPs rant, I'm a bit confused. What constitutes a "hipster" these days? I would have thought listening to music because it's popular would be the polar opposite of a hipster, so can someone give me a definition?

I think hipster did used to have a very clear definition; y'know, people who purposely liked to be 'different' for the sake of being different, and would criticise others for enjoying fast food entertainment instead of more 'cultural' stuff. But these days the word has been thrown around so much, with everyone calling everyone else a hipster just as an excuse to justify their own tastes/opinions, that yeah.. it's lost all its meaning.

I am no hipster, good sir, although my taste in games betrays me on this point. The games I play are not of a contrarian nature, nor do I look down on more popular games by virtue of their popularity. However, in answer to your original question, I do not know of any hipsters in my Kingdom. True, my fellow Lunarians have been exposed to bits and pieces of Earthly culture (and I'm not counting Sexyface watching American TV to keep his English skills sharp), but thankfully, hipsters have not been one of those bits or pieces.

@Video_Game_King: Well, there are a lot of obscure games to like, so i'm not blaming you. Besides, like i said before, i think that Red Dead Revolver is better than Redemption, so i guess i can relate.
And please say there are Lunarian Punks.

I have been under the assumption that Hipsters were not cool. Isn't being a hipster at this point too popular for hipsters to like it? Oh god, I'm so confused. Too keep it simple I usually go with the strategy of "I'll like whatever I want to like and fuck everyone elses opinions". Aren't I original and unique you guys?

@soulfulsoul: What is a hipster to you, though? Lumberjack shirts, bowties, facial hair that makes them look like Wyatt Earp, fixie bikes, Pabst beer, Wes Anderson movies, an overriding sense of jaded ennui, what? It just seems so wide-ranging. Hell, I drink Pabst and watch pro wrestling w/o irony. Does that make me a hipster? (It probably just makes me lame but I've made my peace with it)

I just don't understand it. I usually have no trouble getting along with people, but I would have to say if there is one group of people I don't like it is hipsters. Maybe I don't understand the group, but it seems everything about them is fake. They wear ridiculous clothes just to look silly or unique, listen to music just because it is popular and new, and have horrific attitudes that are incredibly selfish. It seems like they are trying so hard to be a part of the group. When did trying to fit into such an awful stereotype become so popular? I am sure some are decent people, but why would they want to be a part of a group like this?! It seems to have just been in the last 4 years or so. Unfortunately theree are a ton in the city I'm from.

I don't think you understand hipsters. They don't listen to popular music. They listen to music you (and the mainstream) have never heard of until they become popular and then they move onto the next thing you've never heard of. Then when their favourite underdog is huge they can say that they were there from the start.

Everybody wants to keep up with the Jones so to speak. Hipsters try to be ahead of the Jones by being there first. They have their trendy clothes, bands and technology before the rest of the world. The people around them know what they are about and go to them for advice on what's hot and new. Ask a hipster about the iPhone 5 and he'll know a bunch of rumours. Ask them about what band they are listening to and in 3 years that band will win a big award for "Best New Artist" despite not being new.

Basically when you are on the leading edge of what is trendy then your social circle looks to you to set the example. Thats certainly a nice position to be in. I guess for some people that gets to their ego so they come off as dicks to those that aren't their friends.

#90 Posted by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

There are a lot of people in the world. Like minded people just tend to stick to one another. If one gives off an impression another person likes, they gain another friend or acquaintance. Thus, expanding on their arsenal of stylized clones. Thank Hollywood for making the early extravagant "simple" look, easy to follow and maintain.

#91 Posted by AiurFlux (902 posts) -

Hipsters are considered cool? News to me. Individually they're nice people, but as a group they've always seemed to be self-righteous pricks with a chip on their shoulder.

But hey, I'm just a guy in blue jeans that drives a bike in the summer and a car in the winter. I'm the epitome of run of the mill.

#96 Posted by DukesT3 (1910 posts) -

I have a friend who will put you and her shitlist if you ever "dare" call her a hipster. Even though she pretty much is. The ones that annoy me are the trustfund hipster kids. Come from well to do families and go to some liberal arts school to major in something they can't find a job in unless they decide to teach it. I don't mind hipsters but they can be very big douchebags as their "bro" counterparts. As with some comments before its just the hipster term is being thrown around in the gaming culture as a whole, when you don't like game A and love game B then your a hipster. Also when I was in high school 10 years ago getting a shirt with a videogame character on it had nothing to do with being a hipster, hell I never heard of that word in 2002 in my high school bubble, you were just known as a nerd/geek who plays videogames. It wasn't "cool" with everyone else, shit some people would actually laugh at me for it but now its accepted because times are different I guess.

Thats my ramble and thats all I have to say about that.

Actual hipsters exist. They wear black-rimmed glasses, funny/weird-colored clothing, ride fixed-gear bikes and they all live in the cities. Many of you don't know what I'm talking about because you're either too young, or you sit in your room all day in the suburbs.
