Hipster: (up-to-date summer 2009)

Used to be a pure American phenomenon but is now quickly spreading through the monster that is corporate advertising.

Hipsters are people who THINKS they are the counter culture, usually in the 20s sometimes into their late 30s. Usually have poor speech abilities and are easy to intimidate. They are not the counter culture/ revolution because they are just as consumerist as ever, the only thing that makes them unique is that they are self loathing in true nature.

Their clothing consists of bright mismatched colors and or ironic t-shirts and almost always tight jeans and fresh kicks. Sometimes they can be spotted walking around with factory made silkscreen frames around art schools. Glasses is not a requirement by if they wear a pair is always going to be a pair of dark framed plastic designer glasses. Hair is not as strict as well now that more people are negatively judging hipsters, many hide their true hipster by mixing it up. Iconic "bangs" are now disappearing as most hipsters don't want to be judged as a stupid fuck at first glance.

Hipsters always own a facebook page and have tons of pictures of themselves on their profile, shot/photoshop with artsy yet cheesy mentality in order to be ironic yet gain attention. In short, they are mostly lonely but don't have the balls to fight it.

Hipsters can be found congregating at freebie events, especially art openings and so-called indie concerts because they simply are too lazy to work/ get their hands dirty (except when they build up musk for the hipster look/scent) to get money to pay for anything.

They are required to own/ride a "fixed gear bicycle" and those who are not up-to-style or are not knowledgeable are likely to be identified quickly and disregarded by the greater hipster community. But this will only make that person even more of a hipster wannabe. High-end hipsters uses their parent's or hard earn intern dollars on Fuji bikes(~$700) or Chrome gear (~100+) while low end hipsters buy SE Drafts (~$300) and bullshit messenger bags(~$20-). They almost ride entirely with no brakes, this is not to be confused with someone trying to be a clown in the circus; they simply wanted the bike to be light and have nothing that can be stolen; which often lead to crashes and permanently damaged knees. Those who are weasels ride "freewheel" and with often front brakes, those are the most self-loathing hipsters that doesn't go all the way but still want to be a hipster. Also, most chop their handlebars so short so they can squeeze through two busses that they can barley control it anywhere even if its a wide open lane.

While they are self-described free-thinking intellectuals these hipsters are often off-the-rack as can be, some even dare to buy designer "thrift-store-look" clothing and gears with more often their parent's money than their own.

Their musical taste is only there to prove their love for a time that is not their own; 80s music for example. Hipsters are so lost they don't really believe in much of anything or know what to do with their lives so they hope to attach themselves to something that was once "great", usually something weird and alienating but easy enough so they don't have to try too hard to copy (such as Punk).

Hipsters are always an art major/drop out at some point and mostly had been an intern at a major city like NYC for some crook commercial "artist".

They hang in packs because of their low self esteem and often smoke/drink a certain brand of cigarettes and alcohol but because of recent global scrutiny some are cracking under pressure and begin doubting their own culture, their embarrassment or defiance can be felt through their speech and look; they either go all out on their look and pompous speech or they easily crack under even the slightest visual scrutiny by a passer-by.

to be continually updated until hipsterdom is history...
Did you see what that mutha-fucking hipster did just now? He just got on his fucking hip-wagon of a bike by flipping his twig of a leg wrapped in skin tight jeans over those fucking tiny handle bars, what a fucking loser.... look! he tripped on his own bike hahahahaha!

Men and women, mostly yuppies, in their early to late twenties. They love simple clothes and work at hipster places like American Apparel. Hipster men love to wear slim fitting sweatshirts and straight legged jeans or a solid colored tee, hot shorts, sweatband, and vinatge sunglasses. The women hipsters like to wear a floppy bohemian dress, dark stockings, slouch boots, a blazer, and a pendant necklace that comes down to their chest. When it comes to hair, hipster guys prefer to have scruffy beards and wavy hair- any length. Women have long wavy hair with little or no layers, but with eyebrow length bangs. All hipsters are obsessed with music, style, and movie subcultures. Their main goal is to look "cool", but they never use that word to describe anything.

Anyone who thinks hipsters are from a young age group essentially consider themselves a brand of "hipster" but are in fact merely blissfully, painfully unaware of anything outside of their little uninformed, age-ist universe.

Vintage hipsters (yes, over 35 years old!) still enrage the status quo and run around in black pants like they are cooler than anything going. Don't worry, kids!, all of your complaining and dislike of all these little sub groups that mean next to or absolutely nothing will continue to plague you for the rest of your life, lucky you!
Think we can get into the Maryann Faithfull concert at St Ann's, or will it be sold out to HIPSTERS?

Someone who tries way too hard to make an impression on others and is far too self conscious to ever live a happy and meaningful life. They think they are unique, but really they are simply a slave to their own subculture's trends. Overall, you shouldn't dislike hipsters, you should feel bad for them.
Look at that hipster, with his scarf and his skinny jeans. Poor guy, he must be miserable spending all of that time trying to attain that look. And oh, look, he just ordered a PBR. Never mind that that beer tastes terrible, all he cares about is the fact that he is upholding an image

Someone who thinks something unknown is cool, and stops liking it as soon as it becomes popular. These people think they are cool because of it, but generally speaking, they are arrogant bastards who conform to an ideal of non-conformity.
