Hipster. What's in a name? That which we call...

Posted on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 11:27 AM

Could someone help explain this style-/trend-challenged bloke what it means to be defined as a 'hipster'? Is it the personal grooming and apparel style which approximates an effeminate lumberjack (an oxymoron unto itself I declare)? Is it the commanding of a mode of two-wheel transportation known as the 'fixie'? Is it the obvious display of the particular sleeve tattoo that's been syndicated to include the predictable Koi fish, Samurai face and obligatory flower of some well-known plant genus?

Please tell me there's more to it than this? If, for example, the title is bestowed upon those with a proper, righteous philosophy of some kind that really stands for something meaningful and thought-provoking—please enlighten me. -DasedAndConfuzed
