The comedown as bad as heroin withdrawel after returning home from a music festival.
Common symptoms are:
Appreciation that the ringing in your ears was worth it
Unable to take off the festival band for at least a few days
Listening to the music of bands you saw on your ipod
Youtubing videos of the festival
Stuffing yourself with food
Some more dangerous symptoms are:
Making your toilet filthy so as to reenact the festival toilets
Camping out your backgarden
Not feeding the cat
Continuing to dress zany despite being home
Guy1: Hey why's John not coming to the crazy party tonight? There is going to be a ton of drink & girls
Guy2: he's suffering from Post festival depression, Like he started singing at the top of his lungs on the phone ''I WANNA KNOW WHAT LOVE IS'' before hanging up crying
A word used to describe a good load of most hip-hop music nowdays. Or as Nas so elegantly sums it ''everybody sounds the same, commercialise the game & reminiscing of when it wasn't all business''-from the song Hip Hop Is Dead.
basically shit-hop refers to 99% of the popular chart rap music, its to a hip-hop fan what Jonas Brothers are to a rock fan
Shit-hop would be the likes of Chamillionaire & Lil Wayne who give hip-hop the bad image of ''drugs, guns, hos & money'' instead of its cultural roots of the everyday man & his fight against oppression through the genuine art of Emceeing, DJing, dancing & graffitti.
the art of pretending to be a professional photographer, photos of converses & derelict buildings on your social site is a must.
The art of listening to such obscure bands that the next step in Indieness is listening to non-existence itself, Very few have acheived this.
The art of drinking starbucks & once that becomes mainstream home-growing your own organic coffee beans.
The art of extreme self-denial, A true indie must learn to let go of his or her favourite obscure band once they cross into being a well known band & then rant at how they sold out from their roots.
The art of feigning intelligence, To be a real indie one must watch foreign independent films, possess but not necessarily read or understand influential books (see Ulysses/Walden/Communist manifesto & others) & be able to act intelligent on a subject for a minimum of five minutes over a cup of coffee before your true knowledge on the topic is shown to be extremely limited & flawed
The ultimate paradox, of claiming to be unique & not following trends. Yet then adhering to the above statements
If you were really Indie you'd piss in your bed & not the toilet, cause you know toilets are SOOO mainstream
How many indies does it take to change a lightbulb? Hint: its some really obscure number you've probably never heard of
When you know shit has hit the fan with your significant other
Has turned previous burly men into wimps running & screaming at the top of their lungs.
The death stare usually occurs after a male who is in a relationship is found staring at another woman, flirting with another woman or makes an unthought remark to his girlfriend etc. Usually involves the girlfriend abstaining from sex as punishment, or in worse cases seriously fucking you up
To avoid the death stare one does not need to be whipped by his girlfriend, merely to adapt techniques of not getting caught. Aviator glasses & most decent brand of sunglasses allow for scoping out the talent in public without your girl noticing. Unfortunately the only way to avoid silly remarks is to stick a sock in your mouth
Melissa: Were you just staring at that girl?
John: No of course not i was looking at the ehh graffitti on the wall behind her
*Thunder clouds roll in & the death stare occurs followed by a ground shattering earthquake
