1)Urbane is a word descrbing sceney mac users/npr listeners. they drive smart cars or hybrids and drink black coffee while reading soren kirkegaard and other obscure philosphers at starbucks. if not black coffee, green tea or septuple shot espresso! gotta get through all of those poetry slams somehow! are poets, artists, designers, or actors like moby. they live in williamsburg (brooklyn) or upper west side in a studio/loft, but can live anywhere. self-procalimed "urban Sophisticates". very pretentious, but REALLLLLY fun to talk about/act like! they also have obscure names, like gustav or charlton or manet.
2) Can mean really polished and sophisticated in a broad sense of the word.
1)Katharine- Look at them, over there, reading the arts section of the Sunday Times, listening to NPR podcasts, sipping their tazo. geez, if they had any bigger heads, they's knock over their new macbook airs!
Amanda- haha. I bet they live in williamsburg or something. well, at least they can chat about the advantages of sophocles versus plato in their little smart cars.
Katharine- But people like that don't chat. They have intelligent forums of conversation.
Amanda- Oh they're so URBANE!
2)Claude- Oh, those brooklyn artists! So creative! They're extremely urbane!
extreme opposite of urbane
! they're foreign things that katharine and i do not like, hence the southern hick pronunciation. stupid, wierd, odd things that come from or are done overseas that are to far gone to describe.
Katharine- ughh! I have to drive the new hybrd jetta sports wagon that my mom got instead of the hybrid x5!
Amanda- I feel your pain! I have to drive the Volvo.
Amanda- ugh, station wagons are SO foran. but X5s are not.
