A typical 20-30 year old douche bag that believes they're better than everyone else because of their misguided and unrealistic ideals. They believe in nonconformity, listen to terrible indie music, wear clothes from the Salvation Army, are usually vegetarian and do tons of recreational drugs. Their extremely liberal stance in politics makes them incapable of accepting reality for what it is, and they’ll actually defend drug abuse, claiming it’s healthy. Hipsters specialize in mooching off society, believing in utilitarianism and socialism, and that everyone should be equal and that they have a right to have everything handed to them. It is because of this that most of them are jobless, having no incentive to work for or earn anything that isn't free (See: Occupy Wall Street
You can recognize a hipster for their odd piercings, odd colored hair, tight jeans, donated clothing and pothead-like voice. They can usually be found at raves or indie rock concerts, and occasionally at house parties rolling up their own cigarettes and / or holding a Pabst Blue Ribbon. You may also recognize their incredible ability to reject reality and their intense effort to do absolutely nothing. This means staying up til odd hours of the morning, and sleeping all day, only to wake up, smoke a cigarette, then smoke 2 other drugs just in time for another cigarette. They usually proceed to ask to borrow some money, being they just spent it all on smoking, instead of necessities like food.

2. twenty-something stroketard whose style of clothing conflicts with their demeanor, thus resulting in a spicy psudeo-intellectual with more flavor-of-the-month conversations than a long island prostitute.
If I here one more three syllable word outta you, I'm gunna paint this diner with your hipster BLOOD!
The ultimate consumer, the best answer to a capitalist society. Buys things solely because of trends and claim they don't. Ironically
A generation who has sold out real ideals, for the short-term comfort of being in trend, on every area from clothing to "ideals".
In other words; fucking twats who have given up on the world, fooled by society to believe they're saving it by buying locally produced food and shopping at thrift stores. Ironically.
Hipster: Hey, Bill', heard about this new band/song/brand/store/ideology? It's so rad, I'm going to go consume it now.
Bill: Or you could just come join the revolution you know. Just saying.

n. (1) A young or youngish person who, in matters of social, musical, sartorial and professional taste, considers himself or herself to be "post-ironic" (i.e. believes that neither social practices nor social commentaries are worthwhile pursuits) while blowing off the problem that no such thing as an ironic gesture about irony can actually exist. (2) An individual who exhibits outward personal signs of late-capitalist malaise about one's inexorable and total involvement in standard-normative fields of production and consumption.
Hipsters typically exhibit a variety of self-reflexive and tragicomic symptoms, including: Retro fashion / Denial of identity / Embrace of outward poverty while retaining a measure of affluence / Rigid standards of social, professional, and political flexibility / Joyous self-realization in sadness / Personal fulfillment in the realization of non-transcendent gestures
Half of the students at NYU.
Hipsters are mostly seen hanging around Gallatin, but can be found in Tisch or CAS occassionally as well. Think coffee and Monk's seem to be some of their hangouts, and after midnight on weekends, they swarm St.Mark's.
That guy with the checkered scarf, white v-neck tee shirt he wears every day, black skinny jeans and converses, and his girlfriend with the short hair, side-swept bangs, white and black striped glasses and a bag with a pop art design of Nietsche that you see coming off the L train from Williamsburg with their ipods and their small deli coffee, smoking a fancy cigarette. Those are hipsters.
