@mrv321: Kind of disagree regarding the Mac: I'm coming out of a meeting, it's 11AM, and there's a starbucks right across the street. So I open my mac to check emails while enjoying an espresso... Nothing really strange about that (to me). I mean, laptops are supposed to be carried around, the 13" Pro is light enough to be taken pretty much everywhere (and the Airs are even better for this)... I don't really see why it's weird. (I might be one of them, then)You spend 2 hours in an meeting
What isn't a hipster?

(I might be one of them, then)You spend 2 hours in an meeting Your in an awful mood You go to get coffee accross the street, to relax you. Why are you doing work during this? Now the people in your office who work in close relations with you will probably have also been in that meeting and went to get coffe meaning they won't have emailed you. So it's other clients. Now this is email, if it's important they ring you... right? I have never once receied an email with a 20 minute deadline. So let's say an IMPORTANT email comes through, would you really reply to it on the spot after having an awful meeting? Or would you rather wait 15 minutes be relaxed and send a better email.
@Greg818: As long as you don't pull a "Tested? I used to post there, before it got popular" kind of line on someone that discovers this site, I think you'll be ok. :D
Also, Prius hate is good and proper. No one should drive a Prius. :D
Hipster is a form of the douche bag.
@Deusoma: Probably because we all burned out that reference literally 30 minutes after the game came out in 1997. At least I did.
@Deusoma: I think you missed the sarcasm of posting that I was over something because a lot of people use it in a hipster thread.
Eh, I guess it doesn't translate well over the internet, at least not without a picture of a guy in large glasses with a condescending look on his face.
@Greg818: As long as you have your shots, you should be ok.
Alternatively, bait him away with a chi tea latte.
Long story short, they are people who use retro, nerdy, or hippy fashion and "principles" to appear "hip" by being "above the curve" and "not being a sheep."
Your Scene Sucks is your one stop shop for learning about every type hipster imaginable.
@MordeaniisChaos: .I'm not totally sure that applies to all hipsters. Look at Beans. Rather, don't look at Beans (the man in front with the mic is Dan Deacon, who's a pretty awesome musician but pulls a big hipster crowd with him). I mean...I'm not sure he operates on any principles beyond "sweaty" and he doesn't wear much in the way of fashion...or clothes at all for that matter.
I was at a (outdoor) Dan Deacon concert over the summer and he did nothing but challenge people to wrestle him.
This thread is still going strong like this? Don't know if that's a good or bad thing tbh.
@Deusoma: Why would I do that? You obviously never would of heard of it. I mean, not many people have, so it's ok, but....oh, my latte's getting cold. (But seriously, it's all good. I could have phrased it better.)
@100_Hertz: I'm going to start my own thread. This one is getting too mainstream for me.
(Oh man, I could do this all day.)
Hipster is a derogatory term for an invented class of person that encompasses a surprisingly large spectrum of tastes and behaviors, mostly to encompass whatever the person using the word looks down on or is annoyed by.
It's like the elusive dudebro, a stereotype invented for no reason other than to be vilified.
