a pretentious unemployed person who somehow acquired an extravagant apartment in Manhattan, Williamsburg, or Park Slope, listens to obscure indie and foreign music, says they like photography, art, and film, and does not own a television. Often seen eating a banana while walking.
person: what's your favorite band?
hipster: I would tell you, but you wouldn't know them.
person: oh. my favorite band is AFI
hipster: AFI?!?!?! THAT'S MAINSTREAM!

Derogatory term used by (usually) fat, ugly, chronically insecure idiots who have a preference for mor and pseudo-"alternative" musics such as Nickelback etc., reality TV, and sexual repression. Commonly describes individuals who inspire jealously in these boring middle-class twats because they creatively avoid full-time work, are not afraid to be different, and (usually) have taste. As there is no "hipster" ideology as such this term could be applied to a miriad of different groups who may offend any number of social conventions. Interestingly, the word is derived from the Wolof (Senegalese) word "hipi" meaning "to open one's eyes" or "be aware", and was introduced into English through slavery, as "hipster" slaves developed their own language in order to communicate behind the backs of their masters. Current hatred of "hipsters" is rooted in a desire for control and conformity: slavery to a boring middle-class consumerist existence.
Boring Middle Class Twat 1: "Wanna do something interesting tonight?"
Boring Middle Class Twat 2: "Let's go to the mall."
Boring Middle Class Twat 1: "Yes, that sounds interesting."

One who vehemently denies being a hipster.
NonHipster: Hey, skinny dude in the tight pants! You're a hipster, right?

Hipster: Oh fuck no.

A trendy homosexual fixie riding, grit smokin douche bag. He is always wearing a striped v-neck with holes in it, tight black cheap monday pants, a vintage fedora w/ a peacock feather. They wear old worn italian cycling shoes, vans with holes, and/or toms often wear nazi or WW2 jackets, and bright neon "Fay Banz" (fake ray bans). They have trendy facial hair, and long and short section in their hair that seem out of place. Often shop at urban outfitters and american apparel. Essential accesories include: 1st generation ipod (because its bulky and works better and is trendier supposedly, which is filled with indie rock, alternative, or strange french pop), Vintage cigarete case filled with camel or parliament grits, strange leather bracelets, keys on belt, Vintage messenger or courier bag, sidekick 2. Use words like janky, sketchy, and epic fail. have a vintage italian steel track bike thats never been on the track and most likely has bright colors and 1 or 2 aerospokes.
Hipster 1: dude thats one janky lookin fixed we should go work on that or someting..

Hipster 2: Hold on i gotta pause my 1st gen, yeah sounds good but im too lazy, id rather just brush my hair and smoke some cigarretes, did u hear they're having a urban out fitter sale?

Hipster 2: solid we can go with our fix krew and have a ride there.

fist magnet . a person of low character that stands for nothing.the most unimportant counter culture cliche to exist in one hundred years. gaunt overly obsessed with creating the illusion of social awareness while in actuality concerned with nothing. usually can be seen in the parts of town where pseudo artists congregate. watch for veganism and che tshirts. also a large concentration of poorly constructed one speed bikes being ridden by people with no cadence skills. under nourished and pale hard to differentiate the difference between the females and males of this subculture.
usually one knows they are in the presence of a hipster when they are around someone using really large words but unable to say anything at all. bad odors due to the fashion statement being made by not bathing are also present. horrific music being played and the allusion to the fact you are not smart enough to get it. also watch for tshirts being worn of defunct bands like joy division. worship of ian curtis and nico also a common factor. over use of the word amazing.

someone who does not want to be a part of a capitalistic society and thinks that they can actually acomplish it. They acomplishit. Someone who thinks that they are saving cows by not eating them. Someone who thinks that walmart crys because they do not shop there. It is not listening to indie rock or buying thrift store cloaths. It is doing these things with the beleif that doing these things will save the world. Hipsters will never refer to themselves as hipsters

A shallow subculture of teens and young adults that shows how the worst of human tendencies to seek some kind of dominance over one another even stoops down to the most mundane subjects like tastes in music and fashion.
You know you're a hipster when you describe in the most pretentious way possible why your taste in edgy/vintage clothing and obscure music makes you a better person than everyone else while projecting your insecurities onto people who successfully fit into the realms of society while you failed miserably at doing so.
