"What's the most random CD I own? I own a Ronan Keating CD".
- and she blows it.
he probably DOES speak to her in ways Razorlight could only dream of
she watches it back in 10 years she'll kill herself.
"Ah'm urr Indy. Arr an so yooneek. Ah'm urr eemoshunell paintar und i only lusten to 'low-fi' likes RAysorlites"
me of someone on here. a guy from here.
i won't say who. that would be nasty.
I'm laughing like a drain cause I know exactly who you mean.
At least, if it is who I think it is, it's funny. I'm gonna take it like that anyway. Its funny.
I know exactly who you're talking about.
i want to know :(
But I don't think he'd ever get filmed saying he like Razorlight though...
but i don't know him well enough to conclude such a thing.
How do I (social) network? (Myspace, Bebo, Facebook, MSN)
* By using screen names that combine ‘cool’ band names or lyrics with my own, like ‘Clap Your Hands Say CLAIRE’ or ‘SAMisonfire.’
its actually true though
&& SAM SUICIDE
Good work BBC
on the definition.
thing? to point children further in the direction of being a type rather than themselves? slightly odd no?
"If it looks cultured, its indie."
its pretty harmless really, just quite funny
that makes me glad being indie wasn't invented when i was young.
from something to like to something to 'be'. kids nowadays seem a bit more obsessive with their tribal membership?
at school, there were sweaties in rock music, schemies into chart music and dance music. and.. that was it. and noone really identified themselves with those categories, they were terms of abuse.
i know we shouldn't take a few rich kids on a bbc website as representative, but there does seem to be more tribalism.
i blame the internet.
i think it might just be a bit more identifiable now. I mean at my school we had skaters, grungers, chavs, trendies and all stuff like that. I think it might just be that the differences are more defined now.
There was still cliques and stuff.
younger than imagechange.
At my school I wouldn't really say that that applies, if you were to judge by those definitions on that website my friends would be indies, basketballers, skaters, emos and nu-ravers. but if you called any of them one of those things they'd just be offended, no one wants to be part of these groups apart from idiots...
If you're a complete loser dork at school who nobody likes or pays any attention to, you had, until now, 3 ways of 'stepping out from the crowd and being noticed': Goth, Emo or An Hero. Now they've lumped the NME indie-subculture in with "fashionable" trends for rejected teens who couldn't quite handle all the makeup involved with the whole goth looking like a ghost wearing a binbag thing.
Look at her face and listen to her voice. A few years ago you wouldn't have looked at her if her face was on fire. Now she has similarly retardo'd boys looking at her 'cos she's got hairspray on and right jeans.
I wish they would all die.
lol. this is pretty funny. i love people trying to define youth movements from the outside
I was wrong.
I would hate to wear my nans clothes.
being linked with hardcore :)
'What is an Indie' so I might have to show him this hehe.
I've ever heard the term "an indie". You're dad is way cooler than me :)
what is an indie I keep seeing the word indie like indie films on sky and indie music what is an indie....
It made me laugh cos I didnt think the frase 'an indie' even existed it just sounds silly like somat your dad would say.... and mine did
"Obviously raves, but if you're not old enough it doesn't matter… you don't have to go to raves to be a Nu-Raver."
why, bbc, didnt we have this in the 90s for grebo and romo?
"I just don't want to conform and be the same as everyone else."
is a last.fm page
not bad really.
my mate talks to her. i hope for his sake its not her
do i tell my friend or not?
it's a bit of a shame she's exposed herself as a bit of a wang - 'nme is the indie bible' :(
and im guessing she was desperately playing up to it all... so its not awful, just as you said shes a wang.
why would she have The Moldy Peaches at number one in her track listing?
given that she says her favourite band is razorlight at the time, and now they barely feature on her top artists, im guessing she used to be into razorlight and got a bit of a clue later on.
I think it is. Someone's written:
'aye, you've not scrobbled ronan for a while, he needs to be in our artists we share in common aye. xxxxxxxxxxx'
im guessing the video was done a year or so ago
she likes Life Without Buildings.
+She listens to X Ray Spex
+She listens to Sonic Youth
+She listens to The Sonics
-She has a ridiculous taste in eyewear
-She listened to Carla Bruni last week
-She listens to artists once each. Is she actually interested in music, or just in having a fashionable last.fm chart?
-Compatibility: Very Low
im guessing that video was done a year or two ago given that she mentions school. So its not all bad.
you utter paedo
and you're 24. And I'm 20. Now look who's the paedo? Taking impressionable young men to notting hill and plying them with Spanish beer with odd aftertastes and Wipers albums.
(I really like Youth of America, a lot)
then i'm a stud.
sorry. I realise you're actually 23. We can date after all.
although she was probably 15 in that video.. thus explaining the change from complete bellend, to bellend thats grown up.
Im sure if i was on telly at 15 id now look back on it and cry.
i'm surprised someones only posted it here now. 2 years seems like a long time for the beeb to wait.
but like i said several things, her mates look younger than 17, shes a typical 15 year old kid in the video, she likes razorlight on the video but they arent in her last.fm... etc.
it constitutes stalking and she could sue you for loadsamoney
its not quirky
'ska is about having fun, not caring about anything like material possessions, and being TOTALLY WICKED!!!'
not just the kids... another reason to hate it.
Am I now subnormal?
Well, on that video.
Your musical compatibility rating with flashgordon__ is:
she comes off badly out of this thing. i always thought she was pretty sound due to her music taste.
i'm sure she's lovely in real life, i wouldn't want to sound 'indier-than-thou' or judgemental or anything.
You share a few artists in common, including Kings of Leon, Good Shoes, Sonic Youth, Adam Green, and Pixies.
you have to like ska music"
...is often seen with other hoodies, wearing hoodies
the other one that seems semi normal is the mosher. yes he's a bit teenaged, but he's not the indie girl. she's the sort of person that makes me wish for an ethnic cleansing of the middle classes.
What about music?
* I listen to anything that’s easily downloadable.
* I like alternative music… whether it's in or out of fashion. I like real music.
* As my music habits change, so do I.
* I like to listen to my music on my iPod, Mp3 Player, Mobile phone, Satellite and Cable systems, through Windows Media Player/Real Player/ iTunes and online streaming.
she sounds like shes from liverpool. i guess its excusable.
then again its absoloutely gold.
"Hi I'm Jermaine and I'm a DiSer"?!
Still, I thought he came across as a nice guy. The mosher one was ok as well (+ points for throwing the devil horns at least twice.)
no bent knees. he was only saying skanking is dancing however you want because he can't do it properly.
= the death of feminism
"i listen to vinyl because it's quirky"
the correct answer would be - the sound is richer and because i started listening to indie at aged 2, my collection is comprised of mainly vinyl.
minus 20,000 indie points for you.
everything is a joke. even this. im joking right now.
and was going to post a thread on it, until I was stopped by the sudden thought that people might be really mean, she would somehow read it, and then kill herself in a fit of miserable shame.
And I would hate to feel responsible for that.
and she's the same as almost every other girl who listens to Radio 1 and thinks that Jo Whiley is the Goddess of new music.
so I can tell her how insignificant she is, how nothing she ever says matters, and how she is never going to achieve anything of note because everything she does and says is basically just nothing- it is a waste of human space. And that is how I will Jo Whiley face-to-face with the infinite insignificance of her own existence, and that is how I will destroy her mind.
some hit mind-destroying speech that was popular in the 70s though.
i feel semi-bad now. THANKS!
she means well, obviously. i feel more painful sympathy than annoyance.
Who is 'an indie'? An 'Indie-kid' yes, but 'an indie'? surely not.
And not enough has yet been made of the FUCKING BBC spelling 'independent' wrong.
the BBC disclaimer at the bottom:
"The above are opinions of the BBC that are based upon chatting to the tribes and searching the net."
Quailty journalism there, Beeb. Really doing yourself proud.
turns out to be one of the most likeable ones of all?? WHODAFUNKIT?
she would ACTUALLY DIE.
1. The Moldy Peaches - Lucky number 9
2. The Zutons - Valerie
3. The Hot Melts - Edith
4. Crystal Castles vs The Klaxons - Atlantis Interzone remix
5. Ladytron - Seventeen
6. Razorlight - Golden Touch
7. The Cribs - Our Bovine Public
8. The Libertines - Dont Look Back Into The Sun
moldy peaches are like her top artist
John Cornfield FTW.
Which begs the question of why there's no Good Shoes in that top eight, unless she was aware of what the strand was trying to do and played along with it. Razorlight and the Zutons aren't even in her top artists list.
or it being a while ago
for 'in the city' by good shoes though...
am i not indie?
friendly chav or FRAV:
There is no way these people are real.
They must actors. Shirley!
If not, I hope they don't wake up tomorrow.
'eqaulity...and dancing the night away'
'we dont care about material possessions'
no, because you have millions of em!
it's a switch thing.
Doesn't Grimshaw deal with Switch?
so evil that his surname is all that's needed. also:
'London socialite Nicholas Grimshaw'.
The surname itself however does convey all of his evils.
is hardly the name of a Shoreditch ligger and silly hair wearer, is it?
I'm not sure where i was going with that.
i did it myself.
because "she" is 80% of Dis posters.
to queue up with us from 3pm before the next nme big gig now.
But we know were all tools, she clearly doesn't realise how much a tool she really is.
"For those of you who think that Nu-Rave isn't a music genre… well … you're wrong!"
Excellent argument. Couldn't have put it better myself.
i have medium compatibility with her on last.fm :D i are half indie?
"She calls herself indie? I'M INDIE! I liked the mouldy peaches BEFORE they were on juno! I think the NME is SHIT! THat's true indie! I like all types of music too though because i'm a PROPER indie: I have an opinion on rachmaninov! Creative? I'M CREATIVE! I WROTE LIKE 10 SONGS IN ONE DAY ON GARAGEBAND...."
And the sentiment behind all of this?
"WHY ARN'T I ON TV??!!!!"
I'M THAT INDIE.
I'M THAT INDIE
why don't they have a section for "classics" kids?
hi i'm nathan, and i'm a classics kid
well to be a classics kid Id say you'd have to a have a very strong interest in greek mythology and ancient history
yeah typical classics kid clothes are mainly togas... wreaths... sandals, that kind of thing
a lot of people pick on us but we don't care. i'd rather read Homer's Odyssey that listen to bullet for my valentine.
"I heard Razorlight on Radio 1 and then I was an indie"
oh, and hanging out at the Tate, how very Avant Garde!
Aren't people called indie kids anymore? I'm not referring to her, naturally :)
my friend said she told him about it and was taking the piss throughout the whole thing. I think i beleive this as it really is that cringeworthy
my friend says she does ass to mouth. i just don't know WHAT to believe...
because people would obviously get the wrong idea.
just to take the piss out of the bbc and everyone who does beleive that is how to be 'an indie'. I mean its so ludicrous i think im statting to beleive her
shes even more indie than previous figures have shown.
the world may explode!
"wear clothes your gran would wear even if they look bad", it's possible
getting jonny borrell pictures and stuff on your wall etc
Either way, her last fm is still indie dullsville.
that and the hairspray one...
Watching this I experienced a bit of an ephiphanical 'THAT COULD HAVE BEEN ME' moment.
It was when she said 'My favourite song when I was 14 was Golden Touch by Razorlight'.
It WAS my favourite song at 14. Luckily it isn't anymore.
She seems nice enough. Like, harmless an'that. Just a bit of a massive idiot.
And I swayre I've seen her myspace before.
/flashgordon or something like that?
Neecho linked to her last.fm earlier.
I wasn't expecting that from someone who lists Razorlight, Jack Penate and Amy Winehouse as their favourite artists.
This is all a bit weird.
And now I see she's posted here. Hello!
Is she going to do another of these when she becomes a fully fledged mid west emo?
you've got to think of the consequences ramis! THE CONSEQUENCES!
"and they take drugs. Fun for all the family!"
Also, how the hell does a kid of that age afford all those swish guitars!
but one of them was a gift from creepy boy.
this makes me angry. Almost as stupid as that damn girl on Big Brother one year saying she was 'indie' cause she was a posh twat from hampshire with ugg boots who looked like peaches geldoff.
kill me. kill me now. or better, kill them.
I give it 24 hours.
its a matter of time...
"# If it looks cultured, its indie.
# I WILL marry Johnny Borrell/Pete Doherty/Alex Turner (delete as appropriate)"
marry alex turner.
shag.... eurgh. johnny borrell?
kill pete doherty.
she's a fucking teenager and seems completely harmless. a few of the things she said made me cringe, but i was listening to limp bizkit and korn when i was 13 so who the fuck am i to judge? i'd hardly expect her to be digging william basinski and sunn))) at the age of 15.
i'm sure i'd be mildly irritated if she had been 21 and expressing those sentiments, but even then i can't be bothered to get worked up into a frenzy of righteous indignation about it; the fact that a large number of people my age listen to the killers and call themselves "indie" doesn't detract from my enjoyment of music. they don't really impinge on you in any meaningful way so just let it be.
so your argument is invalid.
so people literally being sick over some girl saying some cringeworthy stuff and eating at a vegan resteraunt is a little DiStereotypical of you don't you think?
I think it may have been a joke, however everyone should stop being so hideousl offended by it.
is the worst thing ive ever said :)
I want medical records.
Answer something only you could know.
my friend sent her the link
I can sympathise.
It happened to me, sort of, on a certain football forum. Only that was entirely my own fault, and not at all the BBC's.
They replied... didn't seem to like me very much. Left a bit of petty vandalism in the comments on my blog. About it.
taking it too far!
Hey- do with my last.fm account what you will. But the blog's just an innocent bystander in all this!
loudmouth footie types
that you went online on here just to prove us all wrong with sarcasm. Nice.
No coz i iz like being ded postmodern coz i iz like taking the piss outta all you fools on ur internet forum. god you is all such loserz.
GO FUCK OFF.
what did chrisjabe ever do to you?
It may have been ironic but your attitude to it makes me despair.
that is so indie.
You didn't take the piss you are an undy and emooshunnel and you doesn't afraid of anything and muisic is life man put on my granny clothes and joyn an gang. YOU ALL AN JUSS JELLUSS!!
9 of which could accurately be described as indie. im guessing its a bit difficult. anyways, the point is they are just kids, whether they were sincere or not its a bit stupid, and pointless to post on a messageboard saying what idiots they are. By all means take the piss out of the bbc though.
its ok to have a joke but some people went a bit far i think and i took this out on you.. sorry.
they are jealous that they didnt get the chance to tell the BBC what indie really means!
She is deadly serious and isnow so embarrassed she is pretending it was ironic. It's the oldest trick in the book.
I'd plaster it all over the internet, and be completely earnest in the BBC's entirely unironic webpage. Johnnie Borrell, how out of fashion!!!!11
and no one else will read?
But it just seems a retarded way to mock it. Everyone thinks she's genuine. Sorry.
but if her intention was to make people get all agitated over nothing then shes done pretty well. as it stands if you watch it as if shes mocking it its pretty funny.
anyways i like you so lets not fight
But I know I wouldn't choose that method to do it.
then she wouldnt be embarassed by it, shed just tell everyone to fuck off... perhaps in a poorly spelt ineffective way.
p.s. you are a twunt
if she had grown up... why would she lie about it rather than saying, yeah i used to listen to razorlight. I used to listen to razorlight when i was younger.
Johnny Foreigner: 9
Arctic Monkeys: 9
Bloc Party: 9
The Cribs: 8
The Futureheads: 7
would probably resemble the person in the video, regardless of whether she meant it as a joke or not.
i just got the impression that you were saying she should be embarassed for liking razorlight, when in fact you like similar bands. if you arent then just play nice and everything will be ok.
but its also attacking a character that is pretty realistic, just because they are a few years older and wiser? i was a complete idiot when i was 15 and people pretending they werent is a bit silly
you stand a god chance of being a scenester as you take the name of a song by a cool band. I have good detective skills but would never have known if it wasn't for the BBC. God Bless them and their cotton socks.
you are just as bad
? and how would you know?
Real name: Jamila 'FUCKING DANCE' Scott
for a start...
it's the name of my blog. oh no it's between my first name and my last name. i must be a right twat.
he has a point. you are a twat.
a big twat.
Jamila - glad to see you've joined the fun :D
yoor a bit hotz but yr SAH Anooyin. KNOT FAKE! razurlites is nut LOWFI, GREEN DAY AN LOWFI!!!!
this thread is what the internet was invented for.
YEH!!! u do cuz you cant juss go on my tv and tell me lies abot the musix i feal soh passhunut abouts YOU LIER!!
Do you now CRIBS>? UR SO INDYY!!
them glasses and those teefs looked a little too real to me babes.
Here's how to do it: I once paid good money to go and see Razorlight at Alexandra Palace. I liked them when I was younger.
Poor grammar does not a good insult make.
well when I was younger I saw stereophonics about 5 times.
I am more indie than you!
ICH FREUE MICH
is my new girlfriend. She better go out with me. She is FAYMUS.
how does one "eat your fuck"?
i think someones a wee bitty pyoor umbarrisd lyke.
only a total cuntbag would actually walk round and refer to themselves as AN INDIE.
well who would be stupid enough to go on
to a program and say "i like *INSERT MUSIC GENRE* so I have to wear *GENERIC GENRE-CENTRIC-TYPE CLOTHES* and act like *INSERT TOTAL TWAT*, because i think it makes it much much easier for me to define myself as a person, cos in actual fact im really dull as dishwater"
I was ACTUALLY LOLIN so LOUND my flatmate asked me to stop lollin the i told him what i was lollin about n he lolled to but then he said "WHUTEVURZ, a <3 zZZZ thu raZURLYTES thur
saw INDY a SUw them at t4 on thu beach, its kinda lyke, PREEMUHVERA but closer n MORZ INdy."
hes in a band but they dont practice and they change their name every day, cos thats the indie thing to do.
I was impressed that he was being sponsored - nice one!
he's got some skills!
"My computer crashed and Will came over and fiddled with some wires on the back of my PC and he got it working" . .
PLUGGING THEM IN?
Very, very hard for me.
fit as fuck.
....fuck, you can have a scene for anything now, incredible.
I'm not really into internet bullying
the conclusion to take out of all this is that WEB 2.0 WILL EAT ITSELF.
chris the mosher is shockingly annoying
expensive but wank.
the mosher, the nu-raver and the indie. They all just like indie. Klaxons through the Hives. Thats the range between them.
There's a jaguar on the wall behind her in one shot.
I remember adding this girl to my favourites on myspace because she was SO HOT a few years ago! Awesome!
very funny though.
it made me hate people
More than usual, obviously.
Lets me friends!
that girl so much, yet i was compelled to watch.
She drones on about what it really is to be an 'indie' then tells how she wants to be a fashion photographer. Thats nice and 'low-fi' and definately not 'mainstream'. what a bitch.
also, i think she says "vintage" 14 times in that seven minute slot.
congrats to all concerned
i read the first 15 or so posts, then scrolled a whole lot down, and suddenly its an argument over whether the girl was pretending and being ironic?
it's actually turned out to be the most indie thread ever.
This thread is now meta textual.
I'm basically going to die of indie.
it's my favourite internet moment ever.
p.s. having a favourite internet moment ever - pretty indie?
i liked it before it got big.
in this way, i am KINGDIE
What's your favourte ones to make mixtapes on? I'm quite fond of the trusty C-90.
DiS is getting quite popular these days. That upsets me because its my thing and i was into it first.
I don't like you anymore.
Cilla Black's granddaughter?
she is so cute, tho highly annoying
and also likes the egg, which is basically the best cafe in the world!
I really can't
She is both cute and highly annoying.
unless it's Indiana Jones, OBVIOUSLY
and jab one half into each eye socket.
on whether his mixtape's any good..
I feel mine may lack bite as most of the tracks are a tad obvious... and I forgot to put the obligatory hip hop track on it.
i don't care if you don't like it :D
which is the softer stuff i was talking about
like cultural n that?
it's like a cross between punk and guitars n stuff
not the weather, you dolt.
Mr. Danana, that was funny!
but for now we are FREE
he wont tell us off
he'll just sulk and say we're all shit and probably like explosions in the sky, like last time
this thread is thread is like how i imagine skins to be
he missed this
I'm calling my band that.
I wish I had started this thread now. Clearly any guilt I pre-emptively felt at upsetting the poor moppet was completely misguided, since she was making a clever post-ironic statement all along! Lolz, and indeed, roflcpter.
I used to think the world would end in nuclear war, but now I think self-conscious irony will probably get us first.
Who else is having fun whilst it happens though, eh? Yeah we are!
Yeah you're REALLY PERPLEXING. Eurgh.
i think its more believable that she was actually taking the piss. The ronan comment, the stuff about clothes and buying vinyl cos its quirky or whatever she said. Its actually pretty funny.
The independent music scene is always under attack! The BBC is the puppet of big business. On behalf on the major labels, the BBC is ridiculing independent music, even misspelling independent.
They have deliberately chosen an absurd example of a fan of independent music. This girl lives in a ridiculous huge rich cunt house, has everything that she wants, and then makes the most dumb comments such as the "quirky" vinyl comment.
The whole video is designed in order to engender hate against lovers of independent music.
It's a conspiracy!
gets into a hissy fit, makes laighing stock of herself, comes up with terriblr insults.
it's pretty much gold.
It was worth it
This thread is clearly the high-point of DiS.
I'm so glad I don't have a TV!
Please stop posting links to this stuff, I'd rather it stayed on the telly where I can't see it.
A disturbingly intriguing image...
It only happens when he meets with Gordon Bennett
I can't understand what he's saying. :-(
He doesn't seem to be able to talk. :-(
This was the best thing that ever happened on DiS. Ever.
... is this Janet Street-Porter's daughter?
I remember being that young, once.
She'll look back and cringe one day for sure, but she seems like a sweet kid. Even if Razorlight are her gateway band.
about Razorlight/throughout the video in general.
Indie Vegans. She's 17, she should probably know better.
crawl out of her arsehole mate.
also... we are patheric for chatting over this? rather than you signing up to a forum to put us all in our place with a poorly written, boring, cliche filled rant.
now do one you twat.
You should probably just go back to hanging out with your annoying girlfriend.
i have a girlfriend, I WIN! even though i look like a raving homo
this thread is back
I JUST THINK ABOUT YOUR MUM
i just feel so, so fucking unhappy...
'yeah, music's an important part of it too..'
at least she's vegetarian.
god that's a wretched thing to say.
like a cunt, mate.
why are you so bothered you sign up to this website just to try and insult people, and fail. i suggest you go before you embarass yourself more.
you look like a prick anyway, who has just discovered the combination of topman and a credit card. you look like a cunt.
you silly art student ponce
on the OED (that's the Oxford English Dictionary, by the way), and the primary usage is (and I quote) "The female external genital organs".
It's secondary usage is "Applied to a person, esp. a woman, as a term of vulgar abuse".
That'd be you then.
fucktherave is on my team.
Sorry mate, I don't even know what you mean by this one. "Cunt" as a word goes back to c.1230, deriving from Middle English, with relatives in Old Norman, Norwegian and Dutch. The Ancient Greeks never said the word "cunt". Because they spoke Greek.
it's a free cuntry
and you are right yeah. ive got nothing better to do that post on here. but neither have you it seems. you bellend.
ive got things to do
like take pictures of myself...
nice coat, way to look like everyone else that shops in topman!
also what the fuck are you drinking?
and nice hand.
you just wont stop posting, and you look like an unimaginative generic prick, who shops in topman. so im just pointing that out.
You made three posts in quarter of an hour.
Are you unaware of the hypocrisy involved?
Well, she's more underground than Amy at any rate!
Two years on and it still holds up well, on the wrong side of the bastard divide for sure, but this is DiS.
Can we keep it forever? Can we? Pleeeease...
of why its ALWAYS right to collectively bully 17 year-old girls who fail to quite grasp the point of the music we're interested in.
electro? go and watch skins.
and you really have no idea do you?
go on, if you are so willing to tell me what i listen to and how its shit, how about you tell me what i should be listening to?
you know fuck all about all of that you poser
alternatively, come back when you are less of a cunt. Either one will do.
yes i do do a respected subject at a good university. oh the humanity!
you really are a fucking idiot
that's such a diamond pic..actually lol'd.
cherphillipe is a really dull human being. no swearing this time.
why log on to a messageboard simply to deride its users? obviously you'll be abused for it in one way or another.
people like to hang around on these boards because they are
a/ funny as hell
b/ great places to debate everything from the trivial to the philosophical.
i'd also like to know what the problem with my username is? just wondering if you are being a little bitch or you actually have some knowledge about where it's derived from?
Where else on the internet would I end up explaining the etymologies of Middle English swearwords to pricks at twenty to twelve in the morning? No where else.
DiS be praised!
And how dare he imply that I attend the Leeds festival?
What a knob.
I very much doubt I will one day become an italian tomato and beef based sauce, normally served with pasta.
from the mighty boosh...
love razorlight tick
loves the nme tick
too tight trousers tick
'indie punks with the mod mentality'
'i listen to vinyl cos its quirky'
IF my favourite band was to break the mainstream? Heaven forfid that would happen to razorlight.
those videos are great tho- its good to compartmentalise youth culture.
also, thinking about it The bad indie bands these days>the terrible bands i used to listen to when i was 14
For those of you who think the Indie girl is "comic genius" watch the sporty one, the part where hes with 3 of his friends, the blonde guy who keeps talking over him, I was in stitches watching it!!
Though it has made me spill tea into my keyboard. But we're getting our computers replaced here soon, so they'll never know. Hooray!
We're almost at 500 posts!
on the internet. Especially when CHERPHILLIPE gets involved. fucktherave is amazing. Trooling, flame wars... this should be linked to the Wikipedia page for both!
everyone could stand in a big circle around them chanting 'fight'.
don't bother reading my posts
Seriously, hats off to CHERPHILIPPE, 23 posts in an evening and not a single one of them makes any sense. What was that about his hand tho? Has he got a little wanking claw, Amy cant like that brushing up against her at the NME awards tour.
probably the funniest post in my favourite thread ever.
and its called INDIE!!!' - Emily from last years Big Brother.
is that 'indie' has lost all of its meaning entirely.
And that 'fucktherave' (tries to contain laughter) is very good at making himself look like a massive angry cock on teh internet.
I just find it unbearable to watch, even though it makes me laugh...
or would that be ironic in itself...eeek!
They should interview TV's The Enemy instead, they're comfortably one dimensional.
.....in the utility room of a castle!
The ironing would be delicious.
And I'm not sure if I totally wasted my time or gained some new sense of perspective on ironic humour.
Either way, that Amy girl ain't very funny
Give it time.
even if she has no clue what she's talking about.
And its still hilarious, I havnt even seen the video all the way through yet, always blow my load at the 5 minute mark.
to say who I hate the most but ultimately I think it is the woman my father ran off with twenty years ago.
and yes Im aware of the irony in that statement, those indie kids would have been all over that. Close call.
& whilst it is all likely to be a shame, I can't imagine this lass's real-life persona to be any less annoying or indier-than-thou.
this thread is so last week.
we have moved on.
this thread would go away :/
she's taken the time to come one here and fight her good friends corner and i think we should all give her credit for that, however late she may be.
And part of what she says is true...I just watched that video and deep down, part of me wishes that i was young and cool and "Indie" but, regrettably, i'm not. I'm just a bitter, cynical old fucker who thinks that that poor young, delusional girl and anyone who has ever associated with her should be dragged out into the wet streets and shot like a lame horse.
Seriously though, I think thanks should go to "xIndieGirlsx" for bringing this piece of joy back to us all. I can't get involved with the hip-hop debates, since I don't know anything about hip-hop. This though... this is all gold.
she's taking the piss out of the Razorlight loving 'indie' scene by making this video, because it's quite funny. But those who take the piss out of the video because she is 'of that ilk' are sad?
Deary me. I've thoroughly confused myself. I doubt i'll bother coming back to this thread, anyway.
She's chosen to present herself as 'an indie' ironically because of all the people who are actually like this, but the format and the way she's written it up don't allow for irony, even though she knows it's A Bad Thing to be like them.
Except we're also bad people to implicitly criticise people like them. Even though that's apparently what she's doing.
It doesn't matter, anyway. For every one of us, there's ten kids reading it who are unironically falling in love with her for her Borrell ways.
I am AN Indie.
and puhlease don't delete this. But, to all those who "know" Amy;
- We don't care if it is Irony.
- We don't care if it is supposed to be a piss take
- We don't care if you know her
It is a great video, she is a great example of what has gone wrong to the Indie tag, and also, what we hate about kids these days who skim off the top of the genre without finding the really great bands.
Plus, it has CHERPHILLIPE in it! :D
"a girl could get lost in his eyes."
(a chap would've taken a map, a compass and a sturdy pair of karrimor hikers)
would read again
no doubt you're feeding her a diet of obscure dubstep 12" and cutting edge house/techno
i mean like.. that girl is pretty young, she's probably grown up and is going to every ATP or something now.
I totally forgot about this thread.
i imagine i'm only like to her what many people on here are to me. Most people i know claiming they like indie quote "the libertines" and "joy division" etc, i go for MBV, casiotone, les savy fav etc, which most people on these boards will have heard of etc. there are different levels of indie snobbery, it's she's right at the bottom.
That said i still laugh at this.
Amy still being persecuted two years later. YOU CAN NEVER ESCAPE YOUR PAST.
apparently it has "come back to haunt her".
