Hipster (contemporary subculture) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would have guessed someone that seems to be part of the "IN" crowd. Whatever that is!

I believe it's about a guy named Sterling whose nickname is Ster, and he has big hips, one of those 'pants on the gound' guys, thus the name 'HipSter'...

People who are so concerned with appearing to be cool that they're not.

I'm a hipster... and a boobster... and unfortunately a bit of a bumster too. It wasn't always that way. I used to be really skinny.

I always thought they were kids of privledge trying to pretend that they were kids with nothing, but they still have many of the accessories that they had when they were living at mom and dads 8,000 square foot home in the Hills. They now live in studios in grungy areas of the city with others of their ilk. Mom and dad pays the bills so that they can spend endless hours of time discussing current events, thinking it is a bad thing that the Republicans have taken the house, wondering why anyone would fight a war even if it is against terror, discussing the problems of capitalism even though some of their parents became wealthy because of capitalism, all while sitting at the comfort of their favorite Coffey shop.
