A man/woman who wears tight clothing and will deny being a hipster if asked. Usually listens to esoteric music until a non-hipster does. At rocks shows, stands still with one foot tapping along with the music and there thumbs in there pockets and may or may not subtly nod their head with the beat. Added bonus if in more than one band and has a master's degree in pop-culture.
Male hipster: "I wear woman's jeans."
Female hipster: "You're in more than one band? Let's make out."
Male/Female hipster: "You drink pino grigio too?!?! Let's make out."
You, for reading ironic, pseudo-intellectual dictionary entries on the word "hipster".
"These dictionary entries on hipsters are so comical! I'm going to email this link to 800 of my closest acquaintances, head to Value Village, grab a chai and then play kickball in a headband and short-shorts."
Someone who thinks that they are being "special" and "unique" for liking some underground bullshit no one else cares about. And they pointlessly look down on people who don't know anything about indie culture, because that's the only thing they know anything about. They're quick to call the rest of the world conformists when in reality, they are the ones conforming by partaking in a "too cool for mainstream so i am going to reject it by looking and acting like a grungy asshole" way of life only to seem uber-fashionable. They just end up looking like idiots.
1) Hipster: I won't drink at starbucks, it's too corporate.
2)Non-Hipster: I want a Louis Vitton purse because they are cool
Hipster: You're such a conformist, haveing a Louis Vitton purse is so unoriginal. I like my purse I found in the gutter for $4 dollars.
Non-hipster: but it's fugly
Hipster: yah, but no one else has it. It's completely unique.
Non-hipster: that bum over there has something pretty similar though.
Hipster: You're ignorant because you can't see the real beauty in life.
I don't have time for this, I'm gonna go to my cave of an apartment and listen to some indie rock you've probably never heard of....
Non hipster: You need to see a therapist
Hipster: I am my own therapist.
A hipster is someone who is generally looked upon from an outside perspective as "Indie", but what often makes hipsters distasteful is that they pride themselves on being indie and also define themselves as such. However, they will never admit this.*
*Consider this an addition to the other, more detailed definitions.
Person #1: Man, you are suck a damn hipster.
Person #2: No I'm not, I just only wear clothes that most people don't wear, only listen to bands that most people haven't heard of, and force myself to be interested in the arts because it's cool but most people don't.
Person #1: ...Wow
Can be spotted making pilgimages to Williamsburg via the L.
they call it billyburg
a wannabe indie. a hipster is the asshole version of an indie person who cares about fashion and looking "cool".
1: "hey isn't sally indie?"
2: "no, she wishes. she's a stuck up bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else because she likes fashion and photography. im sorry to say, but she's just another hipster."
1: "isn't that similar to an indie person?"
2: "yes, but indie people don't care what they look like to other people, that's why they are independent."
A person, usually in their early to mid twenties, who has what they think is good taste.
They read literature about drug use and depression, listen to music that nobody has heard of and think of themselves as beat poets.
They wear their jeans too tight and carry around moleskine journals. They write (usually shitty) poetry or engage in some kind of (failing) art form. They pretend to value intellect more than most things, but often are extremely stupid.
They complain about society. They like everything that is slightly subversive, like dressing in drag, smoking pot, or grafitti. Anything that requires a real risk, however, is not worth doing. They pretend to care about the environment, but litter. They smoke a lot. They curse a lot. They say they'd like to drop out of college and become a hermit in the mountains, but never do.
They pretend to be alienated, but actually fit in so well it's disgusting.
HIPSTER: What do you think of my new pumas?
NONHIPSTER: I don't care about your pumas.
HIPSTER: That fucking post modern bullshit is exactly what's caused the fucking degradation of the fucking environment. How can you not care, man?
NONHIPSTER: I thought we were talking about shoes!
HIPSTER: If you can't see the fucking connection, I don't see why you're worth talking too.
