What kind of hat are you wearing and what kind of facial hair do you have?

*cocks gun*

I don't usually wear hats and, being female, I don't really do facial hair. I rarely shave my underarms tho, does that count?

*de-cocks gun*

Okay. You passed the test. You're fine.

I dont know if you're a hipster, but I want less of you in Arizona.

I'm 31 I haven't been called a hipster yet , I hate hats and I always shave but few times i skip shaving , I dont own a record player but i think i like it , i do own a walkman . is owning a walkman make me a hipster? though I no longer use it last time i used it was 2010? but owning it might make me a hipster?

also I think your too young to be a hipster 



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Don't worry. Owning a record player doesn't make you a hipster; it's makes you a realist. Record players just sound a hundred times better than any other medium (assuming your record and needle are actually in a good condition).

I actually reject the terrible artificial sound of record players. Actual audiophiles only listen to their music in concert and unplugged. Anything else is just shallow.

Well, yes, but I can't just invite all kinds of bands into my house.

I estimate that it gets you 16.81% of the way there. You have to use it for it to make a bigger dif.

Also, I know you're lying about finding me youthful, but I appreciate the thought.



This need humans have to label everything and everyone is cultural insanity.

Nowadays everybody is black or white or a millennial or a baby boomer or an American or a foreigner, a muslim, a Jew, a hard-core gamer, a casual, a Republican, a Democrat or a thousand other labels in use.

I've heard that word "hipster" but I can't figure out what it REALLY means. The elements you quote qualifying to call someone that name seem arbitrary to me. I happen to be some of those but not others, so what am I, a half hipster?

How about we are all humans with wishes, beliefs and desires that vary from person to person? I love (or hate) people because of what they do but not because of some arbitrary category they happen to be part of. It makes no sense, at least not to me.

Yeah, I don't know.

Crrrrsh Prffffr trshhhhhh... as a background noise in my music is not what I would call superior sound. But to each his/her own, I suppose

Then I guess you just hate good sound.
