2: "no, she wishes. she's a stuck up bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else because she likes fashion and photography. im sorry to say, but she's just another hipster."
1: "isn't that similar to an indie person?"
2: "yes, but indie people don't care what they look like to other people, that's why they are independent."
They read literature about drug use and depression, listen to music that nobody has heard of and think of themselves as beat poets.
They wear their jeans too tight and carry around moleskine journals. They write (usually shitty) poetry or engage in some kind of (failing) art form. They pretend to value intellect more than most things, but often are extremely stupid.
They complain about society. They like everything that is slightly subversive, like dressing in drag, smoking pot, or grafitti. Anything that requires a real risk, however, is not worth doing. They pretend to care about the environment, but litter. They smoke a lot. They curse a lot. They say they'd like to drop out of college and become a hermit in the mountains, but never do.
They pretend to be alienated, but actually fit in so well it's disgusting.
NONHIPSTER: I don't care about your pumas.
HIPSTER: That fucking post modern bullshit is exactly what's caused the fucking degradation of the fucking environment. How can you not care, man?
NONHIPSTER: I thought we were talking about shoes!
HIPSTER: If you can't see the fucking connection, I don't see why you're worth talking too.
'The majority of people are mindless consumers shopping at the mall and dictated by their desire to buy the perfect house, clothing article, car... et al... '
At same time spends a majority of money earned being a dishwasher/bartender/cook at American Apparel/Urban Outfitters/Goodwill, cigarettes, beer, show tickets, and overinflated rent in the part of town that isn't exactly 'safe' but gentrified enough to not worry about being shot in the day.
(It should be noted that Dolphy was not so much a hipster, but he is a far more obscure and musically complicated Jazz musician from the early 60s. Lester's prime blowing took place in the 40s and 50s, the hight of real hip cats)
julliard student- I'm sorry, they're just playing three chords on a synth and there's a squeeky mouthed girl cooing over it, I should really be practicing...
hipster- I guess you'll just never understand...
Hipster is the new Bum on the Street look, includes k-mart shoes, moccasins,cardigans,and anything else you can find at a thrift shop. Mob top haircuts. Claims to listen to 80's new wave or indie bands. And Extremely pretentious with their music taste.
with more gaudy accessories than a williamsburg thrift store, this gal uses her daddy's credit card to stay hip! she is an art school dropout and has no intention of furthering her education. rather, she aspires to become a hairdresser one day; beauty school, here she comes! please note: this will not actually happen.
her taste in music taste changes based upon what's being spun at whatever club is trendy that week. dance music is her absolute fave, but her friends have no idea about her checkered past.
once a ska queen, she now works as hard as she can to preserve her fashionable hipster image by mimicking the incoming trends, and immediately ditches anything that might have been cool two minutes ago. this behavior prevents her from forming any individual identity whatsoever.
she aspires to work in the fashion industry, and she will- folding clothes at old navy for the rest of her life.
