oh man... OH MAN! whoever wrote that definition before me. THAT is pretentious hipster talk. Normal hipsters can be alright, but what makes a pretentious hipster different is that they are pretentious as fuck. Pretentious hipsters don't look for new information out of boredom like normal people. To a pretentious hipster, information is something to win arguments with. A way to be the smartest guy in the room. A pretentious hipster is the kind of person who wore his beliefs on his sleeve in highschool. The kind of person who vomits them everywhere at parties, often with an acoustic guitar close at hand. A pretentious hipster cleans his asshole out in public, if you know what I mean. They are the people that drove Kerouac to drink himself to death.
Pretentious Hipster man: "I SO intellectually dominated that guy at borders. As if he knew anything about Faulkner. GOD! it was like something out of a Wes Anderson movie!"
