I'm always running them off my stoop by throwing sausage rolls at um but not good sausage rolls I mean ones that have been found behind the loacal bakers a nibbled a bit by loacal urban wildlife

In fact, I think more people should imprint grievances and hatreds into cement/ steps/ walls.
when i was younger/when i were a lad, this whole vaguely indie subcultural sphere of the world was all about dressing different, being into the music you loved, making it and supporting it, supporting your scene (i.e. the black swan/head of steam in newcastle circa 1998), 'scene' was a word with entirely positive connotations and all was well with the world.
these days 'scene' is entirely considered to be a bad word, and anyone who dresses differently is labelled a stupid hipster. lot of bitterness going round too.
not a particular comment on this thread or anything. just a tangental observation.
silly/weird outfits and being interesting and fun loving and cultured and supercool are all awesome stuff
is people who think that dressing KER-AZY makes them automatically interesting.
people started thinking it made them better.
sad but... how it goes, eh?
being creative with your clothes/ideas/life/music taste *does* make you a better person? it does in my book anyway
you could like all kinds of weird shit in clothes and music and whatever and still be a cunt
but i'd rather have friends who are cunts but interesting and full of ideas than friends who are really really nice but boring.
people who think they're better than "the norms" because of how they dress/think/act.
people who are different obvzzz are cooler and better than the norms tho (Y)
and wrote down a load of quotes. one of them:
"you know, in this life, you can either be smart or you can be pleasant. for years i was smart. now i'm pleasant. and you know, i'd always reccommend pleasant.@
"no-one comes into a bar carrying anything small"
just that Jimmy Stewart is lovely.
I really really love him. I always bang on about him to anyone who'll listen.
it just means that a jackass is a jackass, no matter how crazy their outfit.
i like that <3
but in my experience there is absolutely no correlation between a wacky dresser and an interesting person.
life is not a competition. just do what to gotta do, and get on with it. essentially. be awesome to each other etc.
has gone too.
like, if you have indie people in thelondonpaper every day, and after so many years of taking regular beating from the trendier elements of your hometown, if you suddenly find your interests/fashion sense/style to be a feted one, and if you're one of the more key people in your particular community, then maybe it's gonna go to your head.
at the same time, it probably causes an influx of people with no clue about the music or anything, who simply move in the most fashionable circles.
either way though, i've had the fortune/misfortune of being labelled a 'hipster' before (by virtue of running a night at bardens boudoir, and on that alone), and tend to think of it as kind of a meaningless term.
going to wear this as a badge of honour.
I think what was popular in the 00s was generally far more challenging than in the 90s. I don't know if that means it was better but I think most stuff in the 90s people outside of the scene could still see why it was popular.
The 00s were more like the 80s with fashion being important and the music attempting to try more stuff so naturally it was easier to dismiss what was being made and therefore see the scene more self-serving.
I'm sure that had something to do with it, anyway.
i talk about a 'hardcore scene' in norwich or various places
to many people just liking the indie asthetic as aposed to the music. You go to indie clubs its full of possers just goin cos everyone else is. There are alot of indie scenes around but they are indie as in indiependant not indie as in anything with a guitar. Its what happens when something gets really really big like indie has. I mean you can say grime scene or dubstep scene or minimal scene without anyone batting an eyelid.
that pretty much no hipsters go to ATP <3
people only go to ATP to check out cute girls with heavy fringes and American Apparel swimwear in the pool, right?
i can't swim
i was assuming about 50% of DiSers would be what people term hipsters. i'm not really sure how you would identify one... i just call everyone hipsters to annoy them
i just said people who havent been would assume its all hipsterville, whereas most people are just pretty regular geeky music nerds.
I fucking love ATP. I really do.
once this happens, I'm fine with everything else.
Male clutch bags?
I won't sleep tonight.
*out of the loop
You'd be a fool not to.
Honestly, they're fucking awesome
France seems to have a lot of those too...but haven't seen them in other European countries.
hole in the floor I have found in S and SE Asia, France and SOAS
the ones in Tokyo have loads of buttons on the side for different music settings, flushing noises to cover the sound of your "activities" in the cubicle then they have a flush, half flush, jetwash, dry (yep like a hairdryer in the toilet), heated seat, vibrating seat, air freshner....
It's not all the toilets but certainly a lot of them.
but a vibrating toilet seat?? I of course tried this out.
Those crazy Japanese.
Maybe the step owner is telling everyone to lay off the hipster bashing.
