It's because some people are smug twats, isn't it?
* Lack of a sense of humour.
* Acute elitism.
* An overly judgmental personality, resulting in many wanting to kick your ass. (Was this article written by Indie Kids?)
* Believing oneself to be smart, making an ass of yourself along the way.
* Lack of a respectable dress sense.
* A case of extreme pretentiousness.
* The need to comment negatively on everyone's music taste, except their own, which is perfect.
* Constant need to prove thier liberal politics, only to realize you don't know what you're talking about.
* Regular visits to Buffalo Exchange and Urban Outfitters.
* Non-stop bitching - about everything.
* Become Narcissistic.
* Notebooks filled with random Ben Gibbard/Conor Oberst lyrics that mean nothing.
* Acting like a muso, without being able to play any instruments (well).
* A fascination for grey clothes. (primarily sweaters)
* At least one account on the following.
1. Myspace (required, that is unless it's viewed by the indie persons as mainstream).
3. An elitist forum.
* Finding anyone instantly attractive, regardless of gender or age if they share your elitist musical likes and dislikes.
* Telling everyone that you belong to some crazy eastern religion that they've never heard of, even though you probably don't actually practice it.
* Using terms like "overly-pretentious", all the while not knowing that you just described yourself.
* excessive pastiness
* regular beatings from black people
* A severe disdain for emo kids, even though they're not much different than yourself.
* Hating America (If you're american.)
* Thinking you can somehow start a 'moshpit' to acoustic guitars and bad breath.
realizing that indie is a genre is one of many things British people do to piss Americans off.
most people don't really care
How can you get arrogant about being told a made-up song? A song is what you sing to children. Adults are meant to be grown up and worry about real things happening in the real world.
