The opposite of hippie, if you will. Used to mean "young urban proffessional" but now it is used as an insult towards young people who happen to wear suits.more...
It is also used as an insult to mean shallow, but conservative people.
Usually, yuppies are racist and xenophobic, and against abortions. They will exhibit a limited amount of intelligence and regurgitate news heard from such crappy channels as "FOX" or "NBC" or even "ABC" . Sometimes they are extremist Christian, but not often. Usually scientifically atheistic. It doesn't matter what colour their skin is, they can still be racist against their own.
They don't wear too much jewelry or makeup, and their music of choice is the horrific genre of "soft rock" or "easy listening". Their style of dress is conservative, but not bad considering the alternatives. They wear leather briefcases or nylon laptop bags, and have a sense of self-importance with their blackberry cellphones and their IPods.
They wear brand names like Eddie Bauer, Tommy Hilfiger, sometimes Armani and, if they feel funky, D&G. Coco Chanel is seen as an idol, but usually, the females will wear Coach bags, because these are more in fashion.
Yuppies like to pretend they're not following trends, but they follow trends just like townies and tr...
Lead singer/guitarist for the Hammonton, New Jersey emo band The Early November. Also the brains behind the project I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business.
Ace Enders is one of the best writers in modern music.
A mix between indie and preppy; including lifestyle, fashion sense and musical choices. When someone listens to indie music but has enough money to actually go to college and buy clothes that have never been worn before. Someone who doesnt have to live in a drugged up enviorment to have a very smart and independent lifestyle that doesnt follow trends. Not being in the cookie cutter society but still having a shape of your own and not being a deformed cookie.

downloaders, digital media perveyors, digital media consumers, or collectors of digital content (audio, video, multimedia, ringtones, wallpaper, videos, music, and other like content.)
digi gobbers are termed for the action of content consumption regardless of means of acquisition.
"Itunes is a great place for digi gobblers, if you don't mind the price."
"Digi gobblers are killing the old music business model."
Short fot business jazz, more commonly referred to as smooth jazz, 818 jazz, real estate agent seduction music, sales motivation jazz, or absolute fucking aural swill. Tends to use canned r&b "grooves" with lots of soprano sax solos.
Spyro Gyra certainly was laying down some wicked business jazz, but I prefer The Rippingtons' bizjazz for getting into the panties of perky blonde Republican real estate milfs.
a once-vital form of rustic music derived from European styles of folk and dance music made by European immigrants to America. It's generally played with instruments like the mandolin, acoustic and steel guitars, fiddle and so on. It used to be about observations of the world, life and love in its complexities. Now it's all cliched, with imagery of cowboys, macho bragadoccio, Southern pride, small town life, "she done him wrong", "tears in my beer", "redneck" living, sentimental tripe like the trend-chasing "Angels Among Us", and "family values". Oh yes, and "God bless the U.S.A." jingoism. Ever since Garth Brooks (who is a watered down Bob Seger) hit it big in the fucking PC 90s, country has been "yuppified" and formulaic. Now there boring piano ballads with cliched lyrics galore sung by lousy Richard Marx clones with cowboy hats, the generic hat acts, pretty ladies singing tunes fit only for shopping mall opening-dedicat...more...
emo, and all who cling to its destructive nature.
I've been studying a class of sub-human species called "emos" that seem to proliferate extensively despite the fact that the race itself is bent on its long, dragged out, pitiful demise. It seems that these parasitic organisms persist with an insatiable desire to lure more and more humans into their realm of inexplicable, self-inflicted misery, contributing to the ever expanding, cancerous growth that is emo.more...
These creature's origins have been well researched and documented by the website of their origin: myspace. Thus, it may be henceforth noted that the creature "emo" was created by myspace for the sole purpose of extensive monetary profit, as the creatures assimilate themselves with their sorrowful, repetitive oscillations, deadening their minds to a practical reality that exists outside of their corporate-authored trap of emotional "understanding."
Simply put, the sub-human special group "emo" is simply a socially-acceptable goth, reinvented by the music business machine by vessels such as myspace and emotional instability.
Those who have fallen into such a pit as the emos have lack the maturity and practicality to be cognisant of the ridiculous state they insist to remain in, spiraling deeper and deeper into emotional dept.
Which is why it's so much fun to so unmercifully give them crap for being what they are.
