about to begin, to initiate, to start.
New Orleans contraction of "fixing to"
I'm finto wop you one on the side of your head if you don't stop bugging me
One who purports to know more than he/she actually does. A false intellectual. Fintos tend to be hipsters, scenesters and or college students studying post modernism or "Po-mo" for short. They enjoy talking about "underground" indie bands as well. They also tend to cling to geek-chic with thick rimmed glasses so as to appear more intellectual.
"Wow. Look at that chick. With her book on post femininism, her deck clothes, and horn-rimmed glasses. She looks like such a finto."
"That's singer songwriter Lisa Loeb"
"Oh. That's deck I guess"
