Alright, let me preface this in the easiest way possible, by doing this it makes me not a hipster, but by drawing attention to myself doing it and not being a hipster it makes me one, and this continues ad infinitum so don't try to figure it out, just focus on the fact that I'm dissecting what it means, in my thoughts, to be a Hipster.
Rule One, This is the most important, and if nothing else, this is the one that you need to remember. Don't take anyone's advice. Do what you want to do and when you want to. Be a free spirit and apologize to no one. A hipster never says he or she is sorry... Unless the act causes bodily/property damage.
Rule 2: It doesn't hurt to take things from the 60's. After all, who were hipper then the flower children? Free love, Drugs, accoustic guitar, it's all there and it's all good. The hemp and veganism, I do without, but that's me.
Rule 3: If you like something people hate say you like it for ironic reasons. You can like anything as a hipster and do anything as a hipster, as long as irony is involved or it's against the mainstream, though going counter to counter culture as well. You can't be defined as counter culture, or mainstream to be a hipster.
Rule 4: Everything Independant is automatically awesome. Indie is the stuff of dreams as it's art uninfringed on by the man. Classic Films and music are classified under this as well if you want. If it's obsure then it's better.
Glasses, and other steriotypical accessories are optional, but they might help. Guys grow your hair, Girls cut it. You're here to protest the main stream and be independent. You're a Hipster.
