Hipster: "Man, I just feel this crazy-strong urge to go against EVERYTHING MAINSTREAM. What is the purpose behind that? What is MY purpose in life?"

Typical non-conformist. They forget the ability to just enjoy music simply because it's good and opt instead to argue about it. They feel they are entitled and waste thousands of dollars just to look like a homeless person. They don wingfarers, mustaches, kids' t-shirts, etc etc because it's "ironic" despite their complete lack of understanding of humor or irony. They rebel without understanding their cause. They only appreciate foreign films without realizing that they are "mainstream" in a different culture. They claim and are proud of being into things before everyone else liked them. When a musicians dies, they are the first ones to claim that they loved their music way before they died. They feel that the amount of vintage clothes that they own earn them some sort of credit as a human being. Really, they claim anything they wear that looks remotely old-fashioned is vintage. Like that counts for a lot. They are too busy rejecting social norms and having sore asses to appreciate anything that isn't "underground", still being hypocritical and shopping at mainstream stores. They believe they are smarter than everyone else without reasoning. They hate America and are unappreciative of their liberties. They've got 99 first world problems and starving to death isn't one.

In conclusion, hipsters are humorless, pretentious twats.
Normal person: Man, I love this new (insert formerly indie band here) track.

Hipster: Ew, you like them? I heard that they're on the radio now... Sell-outs.

Normal person: So you're sore that one of your precious indie bands has become successful, actually earning money and audience by pursuing their dream?

Hipster: ...

Normal person: Yeah, good reasoning.

What you get when middle-class pseudo-intellectuals try too hard to be unique. Scenekids picked up on this and a whole fashion trend exploded.

How to be a hipster:
- Love anything until it becomes mildly popular. Then hate the living hell out of it.
- Desperately make sure every one thinks that you don't care what people think.
- Shop for your clothes at thrift stores. Bonus points for plaid.
- Become an Apple Inc. iFag like everyone else (totally not conformist)
- Only listen/watch/read media no one else does.
- Don't shave.

Remember, nothing says unique or enlightened like trying too hard to be different instead of focusing on science and arts.
guy1: hey man, did you see all those hipsters?
guy2: yea man, I've never seen so many neckbeards pretending to have refined taste by paying for over-priced drinks in my life lol
guy1: what was up with all the iPhones?
guy2: well they support small business and non-conformity.
guy1: they do know there's an "Inc." at the end of Apple, right?

there is nothing wrong with being hipster, all long as u dont label yourself as it.

you believe in supporting little businesses by eating at local coffee shops instead of corrupted corporations like starbucks.

talk about humanity and art like music, films, lit, travel, history-instead of dumb trends and stupid pop culture references.--dont watch the oc..

shop at thrift stores meaning that they dont belive in paying $150 for a fricking pair of jeans when they can get them for $40.

are usually liberal so they believe in civil rights and dont support the "democratic" govt of the u. s. of fricking a-hole that has messed up almost every other coutnry, and cant get their shit together to actually help their own citizens.

whats wrong with being ''''hipster'''' if its just our new generation being more open-minded and not taking psuedo-coool societies crap?
hipster: i like indie movies from sundance and go to the Pannikin.

dumb other person: i watch one tree hill and drink 5 starbuck's a day...

a person who refuses to be defined by any set idea, style. one who does not like to be pigeon holed. not to be confused with poser or "scene". Hipsters, although taste is relative, generally have very good taste. they prefer films which appeal to intellect or emotion and avoid cliche, sentiment and the generic. they like bands that most people have never heard of because they actually care about music and seek it out as opposed to just swallowing the first thing which comes to them like the majority or people do. music-wise they will listen to many different stles but nothing which is too self indulgent (incorporating mastabatory guitar solos) or just plain derogatory (gangster rap) but will listen to hip-hop and other types of "black" music, albeit underground. they like to be challenged and therefore read books deemed as difficult or "deep" to the average person. they are also often interested in contemporary art for this same reason. no true hipster will have a definitive style, choosing many different styles and will prefer to look different from one day to the next. their wardrobe will comprise of contemporary off beat cuts and various styles from past decades and adheres to ideas of post-modernity. contrary to popular opinion (which is generally moronic) hipsters do not dress the same but, as mentioned above, change their style continually. the people who are being referred to are the pretentious posers who copy the look but lack the depth. they are always intelligent and creative and can hold good converstion on a wide range of subjects. they are also very fond of sarcasm and irony and often employ them when accosted by an imbecile. hipsters are one of the most tolerant types or people and openly embrace different races and sexualities.

people who do not like hipsters either
a) are getting them confused with people who copy the dress etc but have no personality, as it is all pretense
or
b) feel inferior because they know jack shit about real, intelligent music, original, thought provoking film and books and daringly different dress sense. basically many people feel ugly when around hipsters which is often true.

they will know about every good band before the spoon-fed masses, and will very likely be the ones who make them popular.
