In broad terms, and how I define them, a hipster is someone who doesn’t have a genuine appreciation for the things they “enjoy”, but co-opts things others enjoy for the sake of being perceived as genuine. Alternately they also use things ironically, acknowledging that they don’t REALLY enjoy a given thing but they enjoy making fun of it while also getting the benefits of it.
this is a good definition. i also associate hipsters with thinking they have a broad worldview, but really having a narrow worldview. for instance, making art or music that only other hipsters can appreciate, or even worse, putting on an artist/rock n roll persona without actually ever creating anything.
Do you live under a rock?
They're my friends, but they're the hipsteriest hipsters that ever did hipster.
More than likely, your friend is a hipster because he's complaining about hipsters.
Only hipsters say complaining about hipsters is hipster! ;)
Whatever, I started complaining about hipsters before complaining about them was cool. :P
I was thinking maybe the OP is the hipster for "not knowing" what hipsters are :P
