A hipster is very similar to an Indie Kid. Hipsters generally are snobbish, holier-than-thou sorts of people. They tend insert non-sequiturs about pop-culture into everyday speech, as well as obscure music references, and comments on political goings-on. They're quite fun if you get to know them, but be from another label and you might be snubbed. They frequent coffee shops and the salvation army and know more than you ever will or would hope to about... well, pretty much anything obscure or remotely creative/underground-culture-based.
1: Did you see her shirt? I bet she got it at the salvation army.
2: Oh, yeah, thats that Hipster that works in that coffee shop. She's a bitch, but she's cool.

Emo Hippie DOUCHEBAGS! They try to give the illusion that they don't care about anything, but in fact care way too much. They are not hard to spot as they all wear the same thing, but will tell you that they are individuals and have a style of their own. They look down on anyone who shows any interest in what they see as mainstream.
That guy at the party who is wearing the same crocodile logo shirt you wore when you were 5, he's a hipster.

An unwanted, attention whore in dire need for people to look at him/her. The hipster usually wears tight jeans, vnecks, fedora caps and moccasins. They enjoy hanging out in parking lots and coffee shops and don't actually buy anything, because hipsters are "non comformist" but in reality they're all just washed up poor fucks. They love doing retarded dances that are really idiotic jump moves. They like to listen to non-mainstream music and claim they're better than most people because they listen to music that isn't known because it sucks anyway. Oh, and 99.9% of hipsters are homosexuals.
"Hey dude wanna go to the coffee shop then go to the open mic night and listen to all the Hipster wanna bees sing and laugh at them?"

"Haha, Randy, you read my mind, i love laughing at hipsters.!

Being a hipster is just simply being a well-rounded person..an intellectual..someone who is true to who they are..and enjoys all the positive aspects of life while fluanting an unusual fashion sense unlike most others. Another word to describe people in this culture is "Non-Conformists."
From my experience random words or phrases associated with hipsters are..glasses,homo,skinny jeans,scarves,coffee,weird taste in music..scene kids,unique fashion sense..just to name a few.

That hipster stole the keg, let's get the bastard.

It was very hipster chic to wear that 70's ski vest.

It's like a mix of Yuppie, emo, hippy, indie and beatnik which all share that smug liberal elitist attitude. Hipsters just tend to have a slightly better fashion sense imo. A 90's nostalgia thing of mine I guess.

The association with progressive politics can be seen in their inflated ego and low self-esteem as their suppressed social and tribal instincts are manifested in what they think is a nonchalant manner but is actually seen by outsiders for what it is.
That hipster stole my bi-cycle glove!
