IMO not really, they are from the south and religious. Altough they have hipsterish elements aswell.

Andy Warhol is the grandfather of all hipsterism I think...

and Patti Smith and Allen Ginsberg.

But it never had the silly meaning it has now. Hipsters were trend setters, on the edge of the commonpace doing things that others would soon ape.

Now the term is bandied about for those who work likde drudges 60 hours a week, and think a night out is either an evening at Starbucks with their heads buried in laptops or sitting on the sidewalk drinking $14 guava-martinis and paying outrageous rents to squeeze into a Harlem studio apartment. Oh and they are permanently wired inot conversations with others of their ilk babbling nonsensities every waking minute. Oh year, and there's the whole WHOLE FOODS thing and bottled water. OY!

How such a miserable existance could ever be called "hip" is beyond me.

It is a total misuse of the term. In fact, aside from this website the term seems barely to exist anymore.

Perhaps DIPSTER would be better than hipster?

Difference is, hipsters won't shoot you for calling them hipsters.
