I'll deck you...
I was called a hipster again today; once seriously and half a dozen others as joking extension of the first by a different person. I still don't see it.

The Subtle Hipster
sweet jesus. you're 85% hipster.
You're pretty hip, but not in a ridiculously over-the-top kind of way. In fact, you probably look like a regular person generally and almost blend in with the masses, but you wear a few subtle signifiers of your hipness. In fact, hipsters probably don't realize how hip you are until you get into conversations about music, movies, and politics. You're at a healthy level of hipness. Rock on. Don't try too hard.



My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

What Kind of Hipster Are You?




You are the Low-Fidelity All-Star. You were born with your cool, and it's totally natural. You run the gamut from Hipster Supreme (only they can ingest as much coffee as you) to the geeky hipster (Mario Kart, anyone?).
Take this quiz!

You're actually not much of a Hipster. Congratulations! You may have Hipster style, but you're healthy, you eat right, you have a decent job you enjoy, your finances are stable, you plan on buying a house (if you don't already own one) and settling down before you're 35, you have friends you like, your friends like you, and you can honestly say you're pretty damn happy. Perhaps you should adopt a Hipster and draw them into your perfect lair . . .

Jerks.

If you're hip, you don't have to hide it.

Try to incorporate some old-school hipster in you (like the original meaning of the term) and you're a well-rounded model of a man. Goddamn, I love the Beat Generation. :)

gah! Not the point! I've been rallying against being a hipster. :)
I listen to Britney Spears! Does that account for nothing???

Some people can't help but be cool.

And even when they try to listen to intolerable music, they pull it off with flair.

What's there to rally against?

All my friends? :)

pj's a neat lady. of course, also, it was a terrible list of choices. jennifer aniston? puke on my shoes!

people occasionally call me a hipster or a music snob, both of which seem to go together. i deny!

Everyone one I know could qaulify as a hipster.

Not me. Hah.

Camels are totally deck.

Or me.

My playlist rocks me to the soothing sounds of 80s metal, 90s pop, and white rap.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 8th, 2006 02:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dude, it is apparently not about music. i listen to Britney Spears and apparently I'm a hipster. You don't stand a chance.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: May 8th, 2006 03:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did score subtle hipster. Though I suspect that's only because they didn't have "crusing around in your dark blue Buick Park Avenue Ultra" on the car option question.
From: que_emocionante Date: May 8th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
the thing is, hipsters can listen to britney spears and pull it off because it's IRONIC.

i mean, almost all i listen to is classic rock, but that apparently makes me "snobby" because i don't like new music very much. what?!

You have a problem with being ranked with the likes of Gene Kelly? How about the 90's swing revival? Screw it, we don't need you.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 8th, 2006 02:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have a problem ith derogatory labels that don't fit.

If it fits, fine. I can go with it. :)

You are definitely not a hipster.

PS - I'd like to join your anti-hipster movement. If we band together we can be even more hip than the hipsters.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 8th, 2006 02:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
That sounds like it would make us too cool.

So what combination of traits are anti-hipster but aren't something else?
grimreaperess From: grimreaperess Date: May 8th, 2006 12:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tried very hard to do the top hipster quiz.
I can not, however, complete it.

Do you belong to a sorority or a fraternity, or do you have any hope of belonging?

Don't exist in Australia.

Which shoes are you most likely to wear?

checkered vans
tevas


Eh?!
Doc Martins much?

Have you ever voted for George W. Bush in the past, and do you ever plan to vote for him in the future?

Ohhh, I get it, because hipsters are only Americans...

Well, I had to vote, it's the law. I was in Shanghai, they didn't count my vote, along with thousands of others posted from overseas. My side didn't win. Conspiracy?

What's your opinion of radiohead?

According to the options given for this question, either I love Radiohead, used to like Radiohead, I like stupid rap or I like top 20. Huh...

What kind of beer?

...er none?

I didn't get any further than that.
I am obviously not a hipster. Or I am so much of a hipster that I don't conform to any rules of some stupid quiz. Yeah! Burned.

:)

I feel so exluded from underground popular society, I can't finish any of those quizzes. :(
abmann From: abmann Date: May 8th, 2006 02:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is what happens when you're not American. We exlude you from all the coolest tests.

You should still own a vespa
abmann From: abmann Date: May 8th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have a bike. It's a manual vespa...
dragonflyknight From: dragonflyknight Date: May 8th, 2006 03:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
