While some of these individuals may genuinely struggle to become more cultured, most do not have a genuine interest (or aptitude) and are simply trying to fit into a crowd that wants to reject fitting in to the "mainstream". Conversely, a socially well adjusted individual who truly appreciates and participates in art, for example, may have no inclinations towards the hipster subculture. There is somewhat of a one-way, pretend inclusion that the hipster conceives of for him or herself that is a form of mild delusion.
Hipsters present a curious irony by considering themselves superior, more cultured and more individualistic, while rejecting the actual depth, perspective and variation in people around them that is at the core of individuality.
Guy 2 : He's a hipster.
Guy 1 : Ahh - I guess that's why hes dressed to solicit attention and we're not at a costume party.
Guy 2 : Hipsters are douchebags.
Guy 1 : Yeah, I've heard that before.
Second Person: Hey! I saw a picture of my mom with those same glasses on from the 80's!
First Person: wow. what a hipster.
Yeah, I think she's turned into a hipster, I saw her at Starbucks the other day...
That's too bad...
You can spot these clowns a mile away. The guys, usually wearing what would appear to be a pair of girls jeans, you just want to plow your fist into their scrawny, perverted-facial-hair covered face. The girls(some being very attractive) usually hide their beauty under a hodge-podge, haggard mess of asinine, mix-matched clothing.
Anyone reading this who doesn't fit these descriptions, I know you know EXACTLY what and who I'm talking about.
Mostly teens and 20s, but sadly, many people are like this in their 30s. Anyone like this in their 40s, see definition: PATHETIC.
"thanks i got them off Jack Burgess."
"I smell hipster...Oh Hey Jack"
You can recognize a hipster for their odd piercings, odd colored hair, tight jeans, donated clothing and pothead-like voice. They can usually be found at raves or indie rock concerts, and occasionally at house parties rolling up their own cigarettes and / or holding a Pabst Blue Ribbon. You may also recognize their incredible ability to reject reality and their intense effort to do absolutely nothing. This means staying up til odd hours of the morning, and sleeping all day, only to wake up, smoke a cigarette, then smoke 2 other drugs just in time for another cigarette. They usually proceed to ask to borrow some money, being they just spent it all on smoking, instead of necessities like food.
Hipster (Storm): uhhhh, oh yeah haha. I went out to a foam party and dropped 90 bucks on shrooms man. It was unreal man heheh. I was trippin balls and danced my ass off for hours then hooked up with this chick with blue hair and a shaved head.
