Hipster: I make Ironic tee-shirts at star-bucks with a macbook air wearing converse (see nike

Hypster: I work in a fortune 500, too uncouth too be a pseudo-intellectual, too hateful to be new age/alt. I listen to what hipsters with garageband who abuse the bit-crusher filter spin on over priced clubs while being so strung out on coke I actually think I'm and individual. I wax dicks

"That guy was selling his junk hard. What a total hypster!"
A term developed by nameless, aimless, sarcastic, fatalistic (though more disposed to CHANCE as the ultimate decider of all things, rather than FATE ((so I guess...'chance-alistic'))) self-taught philosophers and out-of-time fans of Jack Kerouac/Che Guevara/Wilhelm Reich as the ultimate expression of 'Fuck you contemporary society'-It denotes the current 'counter-culture' of what these enlightened censors refer to as 'fake hipsters'-or Hypsters. The word encompasses wealthy, materialistic, baby math geniuses who do well in school and flaunt perceived notions of a unique personal sexuality and mindset (and know all about philosophy/government) just like it does spoiled suburbanites who brag about smoking hemp and listen to alternative jam bands in addition to supposedly non-mainstream indie shit. Poetry and Manga emos aren't mutually exclusive cliques, but are still encompassed by the alpha and omega put down of said title. Heh...'Hypster' (Ferdinand made a funny).
Guy: "Fuck America and it's hypsters along with the rest. That INCLUDES Neil Gaiman books. You read Neil Gaiman books you'll never amount to anything as far as we're concerned."

Hypster: "How dare you! I'm gonna go express my disgust on Facebook! Then all my friends will comment on how great I am!"
