look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
417.
a member of the hipster/indie subculture. secretly, a hipster's main goal is to be superior. denies the fact that he/she is pretentious while looking down upon the less hip person who suggests the fact.

the arts: fashion, music, literature, fine art. said things are more hip if they are foreign. when discussing music, must claim to prefer oldest album to show that the discovery of musician was not recent. favorite writers include Fyodor Dostoevsky, Jack Kerouac, Jean Paul Sartre. wants to major in art or philosophy, then travel the world.

academia: politics, history, current affairs, pop culture. must heavily mock conservative Republican politicians. criticizes historical events and mistakes while discussing and criticizing current national and world affairs. makes approximately ten obscure pop culture references per minute. virtually a human-wikipedia.

pastime: attends shows, creates abstract art, discusses foreign policies, quietly drinks coffee at Starbucks while reading Animal Farm and listening to A Tribe Called Quest with large headphones. often brings along Macbook to update Flickr with warm-green-tinted photos of friends standing in wheat fields. carries cheap wine around at parties and drinks straight out of the bottle.

hipsters deny that they are hipsters and mock other hipsters for being hipsters. most everyone who can define the word "hipster" probably actually belongs to the hipster subculture in one way or another.
hipster1: let's drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon every time Sarah Palin says "maverick."

An individual who has shoved their head so far up their ass they've found a way to make themselves more of a fagot than emo kids. They can't dress like a half-way descent human being, can't talk without making themselves seem like a self righteous douche bag, can't play more than two chords on a guitar and most certainly cant do art. Doesn't matter who you are, if you think you can deem the title "hipster" you'll find yourself shitting where you eat.
Joe: What's that kids problem?

Ben: He's a hipster.

Joe: Just for that I'm going to kick his ass side ways.

Ben: Have fun.!

first of all, there are the fake hipsters.
aka- the girls who have summer "hipster" blogs on tumblr. they think being hipster is wearing high-waisted shorts and wearing crosses on their necks. they still listen to nicki minaj and kesha.
no.
that is not a hipster.
a hipster is someone who simply does not give a fuck.
they appreciate what they want to appreciate.
they dress mostly in sweaters and plaid.
and they listen to bands no one has ever heard of before.
"omg lewk at me im a hipstur!!!!!!! trianglez 4 lyfe!!!!"- not a hipster

"my feline disgorged this morning."- hipster

A Hipster is a neo-beatnik bent on individuality and seeking a culture previously underground or unique. The word Hipster is synonymous with poser. See poser. A hipster will never claim being a hipster unless they are jokingly denouncing hipsterism and are in fact an individual.
"Hipster chicks are hot, I like the way they dress, they listen to good music"
"Yes, but creative women with their own tastes who dress like hipsters, and listen to hipster music out of their own enjoyment are the ones you want to talk to".

Better than you. A hipster is better than you in every way.
Hipster 1 - What do you think about the article on the socioeconimicly oppressed in today's New Yorker?
Hipster 2 - I'm better than you.

Women's underwear. Resembling to male's boxer briefs, except "hipsters" cling on to the body more. Hipsters also tend to show off the female's rear end.
Wow! Did you see her wearing those hipsters! Parts of her ass was showing!

A person with cultivated eccentricities which are treated very seriously yet at the same time as an inside joke. These traits or markings are odd enough to look out of place, yet tame enough to be shrugged off as a matter of taste. They may include choice of facial hair, clothes, food and drink preference, fashion accessories, vehicles, and listening music. Hipsters are particularly fond of listening to sub-mediocre bands whose songs have sweet and melancholic lyrics, in order to affirm their out-of-the-mainstream eccentricity.
She likes wearing shirts with cute animals that brutally murder one another, and whenever someone mentions bacon she raves about it. What a hipster.
