A "Hipster" is a person who insists on having an opinion outside of what is actual. They like to define things that do not need an exact definition, like why Kings of Leon or U2 are popular. They hate being called "Hipster" and will deny they are hipster. They wear often wear a scarf with a jacket and hat, even when it is not cold enough to wear them. They often listen to music too loud and too inappropriate for the situation. They like going to local concerts to watch really bad bands play extremely long songs which really suck. They often listen to Mars Volta and other bands that suck. They will often watch independent movies and claim that they are the "best movies ever" and especially like Donnie Darko and other works by Richard Kelly. They are often confused culturally and like to associate themselves with things they do not actually belong to. They also ask you to turn down your volume, so that they can hear without interference.
Donnie Darko Fans, Mars Volta Fans, Guys who can't grow beards but insist that they have good ones, People who drink one beer and then act drunk the rest of the night, People who leave music on intentionally while they are not around to hear it, Anti-American Americans, Hipsters like to use really big words that do not fit, and like to put credit where it is not due, Hipsters will say things like "Spielbergian" or "Michael Bayesque" instead of "Good Movie" or "Good special effects"

A subculture of twenty-something guys or girls that live in gentrified areas of large cities (Williamsburg, New York, Wicker Park, Chicago) who aesthetisize their life as a means of justifying their existence by shopping at thrift stores, hanging out at used book stores and listening to indie music that has not yet been picked up by the mainstream. Hipsters generally drink a lot (Pabst Blue Ribbon), smoke a lot (Parliament Lights) and usually went to college majoring in art, philosophy, or English. Recently, there has also been a trend of hipsters that pursue majors in the hard sciences.

The easiest way to spot a hipster is by the way one is dressed. A typical hipster guy will probably be wearing trendy skinny jeans made by Levi's and a tight, old t-shirt with some Chuck Taylors. Their hair ranges from medium to long and is usually a little messy and parted to the side. A typical hipster girl will also wear skinny jeans, paired with wedges or other cutesy shoes and an eighties-inspired shirt with a strategically-placed bandanna somewhere in the mix. Their hair is very cute.

While hipsters enjoy elements of the indie aesthetic like unknown bands, thrift store clothes and appreciation of art (indie films, contemporary art, beat writers of the 50's), they also can appreciate mainstream things (i.e. Justin Timberlake). However, they will usually justify their tastes by claiming to like whatever the mainstream thing is in irony.
Hipster #1: God, I love this new Justin Timberlake song!
Hipster #2: I know! It's like, hilarious because he's so ridiculous, but I can't help but listen to it over and over again!
Hipster #1: I know...can I bum a P-funk?

People who have lots of money...Correction, people who have parents with lots of money. They go into "urban" Neighborhoods because they have culture and personality and the hipsters want to appear "hip" and "cool" to all of their rich friends. not really understanding that when they move in the rent goes up and the "average Joe's" have to move out. Sending the Average Joe's into a crime infested neighborhood. Hipsters usually walk around with their nose in the air thinking they are better than everybody assuming that all human beings are "puppets in a big puppet show" when really they are making themselves look even more vapid and clueless....Now due to the economy they are sucking the very tit of humanity they once looked down upon.
Average Joe: long day working at two jobs. Time to tuck the kids in and relax...

Note on the door: *rent went up. Now pay $1000*

Average Joe: What? how can this be? I can barely make rent now and I don't want to move into the ghetto. (turns head)

Hipster (sipping a latte chatting with rich friend): Well, I decided to move here because it has so much culture and the people here are my muse I mean, ever since I moved in I have just been creating art work after crappy art work! I certainly wouldn't have had any inspiration at 740 park avenue,Manhattan.

Average Joe: I don't understand. Those Hipsters can afford the most expensive Apartment building in New York, But they decide to move here?

The personification of insecurity, brattiness and bizarre sense of entitlement.
The prevalence of hipsters in a neighborhood is an indicator for gentrification.

Hipsters are people doing anything more modern and/or trendy than I am. Old farts are people doing anything less modern and/or trendy than I am. The trick is to somehow monitor your lawn for the former while partying on the lawn of the latter.

Get off my lawn you f*ck'n hipsters!

Someone who spends a lot of money to dress like they don't have any.
Julian Casablancas is the king of all hipsters.

a member of the hipster/indie subculture. secretly, a hipster's main goal is to be superior. denies the fact that he/she is pretentious while looking down upon the less hip person who suggests the fact.

the arts: fashion, music, literature, fine art. said things are more hip if they are foreign. when discussing music, must claim to prefer oldest album to show that the discovery of musician was not recent. favorite writers include Fyodor Dostoevsky, Jack Kerouac, Jean Paul Sartre. wants to major in art or philosophy, then travel the world.

academia: politics, history, current affairs, pop culture. must heavily mock conservative Republican politicians. criticizes historical events and mistakes while discussing and criticizing current national and world affairs. makes approximately ten obscure pop culture references per minute. virtually a human-wikipedia.

pastime: attends shows, creates abstract art, discusses foreign policies, quietly drinks coffee at Starbucks while reading Animal Farm and listening to A Tribe Called Quest with large headphones. often brings along Macbook to update Flickr with warm-green-tinted photos of friends standing in wheat fields. carries cheap wine around at parties and drinks straight out of the bottle.

hipsters deny that they are hipsters and mock other hipsters for being hipsters. most everyone who can define the word "hipster" probably actually belongs to the hipster subculture in one way or another.
hipster1: let's drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon every time Sarah Palin says "maverick."
hipster2: okay. i'm already annihilated
