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

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.

@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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
