I'm not indie enough

Non prescription glasses. Car boot sales.
I thought I was the least likely to be indie person in the world.
Evidence against this, according to DarwinDude, Wagert & Moussee...
Several posts about the cat in Come Dine With Me
Posts only today about how chorizo is the greatest meat product EVER
And I have tea nights with my housemates in proper china cups, but hahahah in your face...I don't even know what jens lekman is.
Phew, I'm just a total saddo instead then.
speccy boys with cardigans
cardigan wearers with cool record collections
I've witnessed on here you'd think it was an indie essential. I mean, it's pretty tasty but barely warrants the attention it garners with DiS' users.
I think it's because it has continental roots. The same ball park as coffee and croissants.
everywhere every gig you go to it's cakes cakes cakes. i really don't understand the indie fascination with cakes. it bugs me.
I have never ever been to a gig with cakes, what kind of gig are these?!
Do they have Cath Kidston cases?
I love cakes but don't consider myself indie and don't have the patience to make ones like that Scout.
but about five years ago they would have done, I liked it when it first had a revival...and I do still have a floral tent for Benicassim, but I'll be damned if I'm spending another £65 on a new one.
You might as well not bother with a tent in my experience - like being cooked alive, even with shade. Floral print stuff has to be indie though.
we head back about 6am to put our bikinis on then sleep on the beach, shower there too, change at the tent, back to festival. We're there for all of 15 minutes a day.
When I last went in 2006 I couldn't even sleep on the beach I was that hot. Still a corking festival though.
...but seriously, CAKES? At a motherfucking gig? Do you know how BADLY cakes go with beer? I like both of them, but jeez, I go to a gig to GET BOOZED, not munch on fucking fondant.
you should be drinking organic cider, or sailor jerry's.
Though there's only one winner.
people don't say 'rock n roll' enough nowadays.
SAYING ROCK N ROLL IS INDIE.
used railway tickets that remind them of romantic journeys
from everything I can see on this post that's exactly what I thought.
as this would also mean "middle class = indie", which is patently untrue
I know many middle class people, none of which are indie
In fact, add venn diagrams to the list too.
in which case this thread is beyond stupid
Stop being so indie.
tmwra_judy you fucking idiot.
Pastels indie, Kaiser Chiefs indie or Fugazi indie?
specifying which city they love.
Jeans that are too small. Shoes that are too big.
If there was a band called Crystal Bears they would probably like them regardless of whether they were any good or not.
it seems more like classic Morrissindiey
gave the EP 9.6 but have now given the LP a picture of a confused-looking sheep sitting in a tree.
indie fame, here i come.
comprehensive answer I think youll find
they probably like to define themselves as something 'other'
not being indie
fancying young Stalin
why does everyone love moleskine notebooks so much anyway? they are ridiculously priced and completely useless :(
i realised i was a complete sucker.
but it was so damn cool.
and my other sketchbook smelt funny.
and the paper is quite nice to write/ draw on.
and like, famous artists, like, used it and shit.
i write sonnets about him in my moleskine.
i'm amazed nobody has said this
I thought that before anyone typed it.
using the word 'vintage'
Fries in it's own juices, no need for oil. Totally independent.
needs no accompaniment, whereas most sausages need ketchup.
yet, mash it up with anything else and it becomes a whole new experience.
then i realised that no one actually likes cats the musical.
That's what my Russian friend said when we went through Shoreditch. He said the people look like peasants from around Yekaterinburg. He even noticed some wellies.
