Ineffably cool cat.

Not to be confused with "dickheads," the empty-headed, ovine army of imitators who inevitably throng in their wake, ruining everything.

Dad was a Marxian intellectual, mum a sculptress or feminist journalist or some such: Whereas we grew up on Nickolodean, he was weaned on radical politics, Andy Warhol and banter about cult literature.

Moderately attractive, probably mixed race, careful not to be *too* beautiful. Has a timeless, sexless aura hanging about him. Seems narcissistic and aloof, yet kind at heart. Survives exclusively on coffee and cigarettes.

Insinuates a complete understanding of wittgenstein and foucault, but prefers to talk about aleister crowley and B-movies. Bored by most things.

Changes conception of self like we change our socks. A scathing, arrogant music fascist yet possessed of no musical talent. Is fine with that apparent contradiction.

Nothing frustrates them more than the idiot masses aping their every move. To sully their aesthetic divinity with non-ironic imitation is the worst thing you could do to him.

And now that half the world is wearing a battered 80s jumper and a headband and is reading heidegger in a café, the true hipsters have long split, and are doing something else. Something mind-blowingly original, utterly profound and eminently ironic, of course.
Hipster 1: What's cool? Um, it's a bit like Zen, or like, maybe defines the peripheries of any given phenomenology. So it's basically better not to think or talk about it at all.

Hipster 2: What's cool? Well what's not cool? It's just a word isn't it? You know, like "sparrow" or "fuckfist" or "hello".

one who has stolen queer culture and made it main stream by having androgynous/genderqueer hairstyles and clothes, wearing colorful scarves, wearing one or multiple earrings on only the left side of their head, and being obsessed over cats.
Two dykes are walking all decked out in cut up jeans, patched jackets, mow-hawks, feather earrings and mullets. A car drives by them and someone inside it yells something at them...
dyke 1: What did they say?
dyke 2: They called us HIPSTERS!

Someone who is hip and trendy. They constantly wear clothes that only hip people wear, thus the word hipster. Hipsters generally wear ironic/hilarious t-shirts. They listen to music and do things that non-hipsters would find weird and or look down upon. A common shirt for a hipster is the wolf shirt.
That kid Seth, with his wolf shirt, is such a hipster.

n. (1) A youngish person who, in matters of social, musical, fashionable, and professional taste, considers oneself to be "post-ironic" (i.e. believes both social practice and social commentary are equally nonsensical) while blowing off the paradox or irresolvable problem that no such thing as an ironic gesture about irony can actually exist. (2) An individual exhibiting signs of late-capitalist malaise about one's inexorable and total involvement in standard-normative fields of production and consumption.
Hipsters normally exhibit a variety of tragicomic symptoms, including: Retro fashion / Denial of identity / Embrace of outward poverty while retaining a measure of hidden affluence / Rigid standards of social, professional, and political flexibility / Joyous self-realization in sadness / Personal fulfillment in the detection of non-transcendent gestures
