Call me a n00b for not being in on this one. I hear this term thrown around a lot, and from what I gather, hipsters are basically indie kids that wear scarves and enjoy art. And they wear plaid. And do drugs.

Also they have beards?


Share your first hand experience with so called hipsters. I don't know of any that live where I do, but if I run into any, should I try to keep them off my lawn, or are they basically harmless?

"Hipsters"?

I have no real information on this subject, but it seems that they are just new-age hippies, so long hair, beards, trippy music, drugs, love and peace?

Why do hipsters donate to Haiti?

Because it's underground!

Honestly, I hate the term "hipster", because it seems like it can be applied to such a broad spectrum of people, and for some reason it has a negative connotation to it.

Like, I get called a hipster a lot, but I would hardly call myself one at all. Yes, I listen to a lot of bands that aren't exactly "popular" (like Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes, Animal Collective, MGMT, etc etc), but that's because I like those bands, not because they're unpopular. Shit, I would be happy if the bands I listen to became popular.

I think it's a term that we need to get rid of. It and "indie music", because that doesn't even describe any music anymore. I've heard people call Animal Collective indie, and I've heard people call Phoenix indie, and they don't sound anything alike.

Stupid umbrella words are stupid, and umbrella words, which are, in themselves, stupid.

Yeah, they're basically liberal-art students and indians (indie music fans, not Native American or from India). They like irony, but, like the rest of the world, usually don't know what "irony" means.
#18
Like hippies but not as 'out there'. They often have a messy-ish beard and then emo type hair, but they are moving away from that trend. They're also usually really annoying.

This is kind of how I felt upon hearing that hipsters are identifiable by their interest in art, music, literature, philosophy and film. WTF? Who isn't into that stuff? Everything has a stereotype these days.

Hipsters are terrible and if you see one you should kill it. They expend all their energy trying to appear of they do not care. Their music sucks, due the fact that they only like bands 'ironically'. Also they smell almost as bad as hippies. Except at least hippies have sincere, albeit somewhat stupid beliefs. Hipsters don't believe in anything, they just do whatever they think will make them seem cool.

Yeah, I honestly know maybe ONE person who would even maybe fit that description.

And that's only if you don't really know her.

Seriously. Hipster = Stupid term that should be gotten rid of.

In fact, I've found that most people who, without getting to know them, would be referred to as a hipster, are usually the more intelligent people of the bunch.

They're just hippies without the good music.
