look up any word, like tex-sex:
1. Person in their 20s who listens to underground music, wears thrift store fashions, and shows interest in art. As an inherently counter-culture group, many border on annoying when discussing mainstream topics.
2. Derogatory slang for "person who is not me, who bears tangential similarity to a member of a youth movement from 10 years ago", used by people whose minds are older than their bodies. Contemporary update of hippie.
3. Word favored by people who like to use big words that have no actual meaning. See: pretentious, pseudo-intellectual, overrated, elitist, &c. The one word these people clearly do not know: irony
1. I saw this hipster fellow in a coffee shop the other day.

2. That young whippersnapper over there is quite a hipster. Now where did I put my dentures? Oh wait, I'm only 35.

3. That establishment is for hipsters! Pretentious pseudo-intellectual hipsters at that!

modern term for organized counter culture, ie. not really counter culture at all, just a manifestation of posers desperate for a purpose.

the hipster mecca is in williamsburg brooklyn. it's a subculture of kids born in the 80's. it started with mutton chops & buddy holly glasses, but has now progressed progressed into trucker caps, pointy shoes, and the god awful rehash of the mullet.

typically, hipsters are "slumming it" on mommy & daddy's dime. a full blown hipster reduces himself by never wearing anti-perspirant & appearing to be poor. drink of choice is rheingold, or pabst blue ribbon beer.
here comes the frickin hipster brigade!

i'm not going there! it's full of hipsters!
