|1.||avant garde hip-hop|
hip hop music made almost exclusivly by white males for other white males. often called nerd-rap by people who find it pretensious and geeky due to the sometimes very abstract lyrics, which often (or in the case of the anticon collective, almost always) do not rhyme.
Anticon fan: "Yo, i'ma go listen to some avant garde hip-hop shit and read chemistry books"
|2.||avant garde hip-hop|
a subset of what has been dubbed "underground hip-hop". music that fits this category must contain original and experimental qualities that aren't always excepted well by hip-hop heads.
Busdriver's on some original shit, but sometimes it's too far out there for me.
Yea, he does that avant garde hip-hop thing.
A highly pretentious and not very widely-used term applied to unconventional hip-hop music (most notably artists associated with anticon, but also such artists as Flying Lotus, Busdriver and Prefuse 73).
Synonyms include experimental hip-hop, avant-garde hip-hop and avant-hop.
Some conservative hip-hop fans claim that such music is not truly hip-hop.
A: "James has got such pretentious music taste!"
B: "I thought he liked rap?"
A: "Nah, he's a total hipster-hopper, he just listens to his lame-ass 'abstract hip-hop' bullshit!"
A hopeless abomination of nature that considers itself "avant garde" and rides the term hip-hop to try and gain some generational relevancy. Seriously though, you can be republican, but don't drag hip-hop into your shit.

"Yo, you votin' for Obama?"

A type of electronic music that orginally spawned in Detroit, Michigan. Detroit Techno in turn derived from Synth Pop and Electro. Kraftwerk was May, Atkins, and Saunderson's main influence. Techno is nothing but a subgenre in the electronic music community. Detroit Techno is still very much alive, albeit dead in the city of Detroit (hmmmmm, wonder why....). Techno is also a word that is erroneously used as a blanket term for all other subgenres of electronic music. No, Techno isn't the Trance and House music you hear in the clubs, morons! They're all different! That being said, it may be done with electronic equipment, but it takes true talent to make music that is coherent and actually artistic, much opposed to the radio triteness the public has been exposed to. Electronic music was descended from Avant-Garde Minimalism, which in turn, evolved from Classical Music.
Good artists worth hearing:
The Chemical Brothers
**much more other artists as well**
Oh yeah, and to those people who dis techno, but love the trite, bastardised "hip hop", I truly feel sorry for you people. You have no idea or any coherent knowledge of techno, and you still wail on in how it's the worst thing ever. Guess what? Look yourself in the mirror, and stop being a damn sheep.

There are some specific groups such as Japanophile who are obsessed with anything Japanese, but ultimately leads to one central obsession of anything Asian. Asiads usually dress differently from western culture because of the influence of the quirky styles of Japan, Hong Kong, and Korean fashion. Asiads love all types of Asian clothing and study obsessively about the culture of Asian countries. Most likely an asiad has already learned a 2nd language of the Asian tongue, if not several.

They love to eat Asian cuisine whenever possible, if not everyday. Most of everything that asiads buy are usually "imported" directly from Asia. Most likely, they have a Haduri personal page with all the movable pictures. They try to take pictures that are "cute" and close up face shots that are very white washed out so the only things that you can see are eyes, hair, and maybe lips. Asiads usually have fobbymore...
