What exactly is a hipster? The term lost all of the weight it had around, oh, 2008. Today, a "hipster" qualifies you as a young person and not much else. The youthful connotation has also been muddied. The term "oldster" has now fallen under the hipster umbrella as well. Sorry, Alejandro Escovedo and Bob Schneider fans, you too are now hipsters, despite your age and graying goatees.
