Simply put, a dirtster is a hipster
who's just dirty. Hipsters
are carefully put together as to look like they just woke up and suddenly looked this cool. Dirtsters are subtly different
. They did just wake up and, unlike the hipster
, just put on their only pair of pants.
They are known for drinking
cheap beer, smoking
cigarettes that have already
been half smoked, dumpster diving, asking "are you going to eat that?", and smelling just a bit funky. In a dimly lit, well ventilated environment, the hipster
and the dirtster are almost impossible to differentiate. Careful attention
to behavior, however, will revile their true identity.
If you are a bartender:
orders a local micro-brew. A dirtster orders Lionshead, PBR or whatever
is the cheapest beer.
If you are dating one:Hipster
has an iPhone, a small garden in the back of their studio, listens to NPR and buys you vinyl and vintage clothing
Dirtster has an old iPod they 'found', lives with at least 5 other people, and buys you items from salvation army
