A relatively new subculture (late 90's-present). A hipster can generally be identified as a skinny, efeminate looking male or a unkemp, annoyed looking female in their 20's wearing tight jeans and thrift store/vintage clothing and accesories.
The hipster is a subculture without a cause. They have no ideals or values except trying shunn the mainstream and appear as unconventianal as possible by advocating the independent. They can be seen: riding bikes, smoking expensive cigarretes, drinking independent coffee and cheap alchahol, and eating organic and vegan food. They will say they do such things so as to not conform to mainstream/consumer society, but really their only motive is to appear interesting and different. Theyr'e also pretentious as hell and have egos the size of Africa despite the fact that nobody really cares about them or their interests. They especially enjoy talking about themselves but will lose interest if the conversation moves to other subjects. They will not give up an argument but if confronted with violence they will quikly coil into the fetal position. Oh, and many male hipsters are closeted homosexuals.
Overall, hipsters are the embodiment of apathy, irony, and hypocrisy because by not conforming, theyr'e conforming.
The origin of the modern hipster is simple: Skinny, uncomfortable, nerdy guys in high school with small genetalia back in the late 90's couldn't find their identity and so decided to "not conform" by creating a sorry clusterfuck of a human being with oversized glasses and tight pants. The girls just did it to tag along and appear more interesting and inflate their egos.
The worst subculture out there in my opinion.
The CA bay area seems to be most heavily populated with hipsters, but you can find them at your local independant coffee shop.
hipster: I just rode my bike downtown while smoking a pack of cloves, then spent the day shopping at goodwill and loitering.

Me: Go fuck a duck.

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?"

Hipster's Higher-Self: "Now we're gettin' somewhere! Keep asking these questions..."

ACTUALLY, anyone who knows anything about Callum knows that he isn't only in 3 bands. DUH! He also raps under the name Milton Diamondz and has another band called TOUR!

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...
