Indieviduals are what I have started to call all of the hipster kids these days that are anything but individual. Most of them go out to see movies like "Juno" because they think that it is an independent film, which will earn them indie cred. However, they buy into movies and music like that, which are funded by major production companies, making them completely mainstream. These kids go to websites (completely mainstream ones) to buy their "indie" clothes and find out exactly what music their "indie" cult is listening to that week. It is absolutely pathetic to me that any person can throw on a peacoat and a messenger bag, pop the spill canvas into their cd player, drink some 20-word long coffee drink, and call themselves and individual. I think that these days, any kid who just wears their old navy basics and listens to music like the police and the rolling stones is an individual just because they don't buy in to all of that crap that mainstream labels have labeled "INDIE."
Indievidual #1: What are you planning on doing today? I think I'll just read my super alternative copy of Nylon.
Indievidual #2: I'll probably just keep sipping on my grande soy non-fat decaf columbian latte with three pumps of passionfruit sweetening syrup and then catch a matinee of Juno, then listen to dropkick murphys, since they're super indie, you probably haven't heard of them, though
Indievidual#1: (while totally lying) Oh, I have, they're really good.

A subculture which started out as a music genre with influences from the punk/alternative scene of Washington D.C. in the late 1980s. In recent years, it has expanded to become an entire subculture. Originally, followers of the emo subculture were kids who didn't fit into the mainstream and considered themselves to be non-conformists. Sadly, however, the emo label has become so popular that nowadays most emos are kids who grew up living life exactly the same as every other fucking kid, and now they have decided to go emo, simply because it is what every other kid is doing. However, some emo kids are those who turned emo before it became the mainstream, and these are the true non-conformists.
True non-conformist free-thinking emo kid: Oh, look, you're reading trainspotting! I love Irvine Welsh!
Mindless conformist 'emo' kid: What the fuck you faggot. Reading's for gays and pussies. Go watch wrestling like evryone else.
Each hippie can be different, stand for different things. Usually people willing to learn, help others in feeling good about themselves, doesnt shadow or hide their "non mainstream" desires, comfortable with everyones sexuality, Doesnt judge so much, promotes loving and peace. Hippies usually look at the bigger picture of Human beings, seeing things as a whole. Some are vegitarian, some not. Usually has alot of faith in individual people or humanity in general. Stands up for their beliefs without disregarding others feelings. Not pussys', i know many hippies that can tear some shit up. They dont dress a certain way (in a whole, similarities vary) and just do what they want because they believe its free, and we are people. Loving to be intouch with nature, usually really spiritual but not exactly religious.more...
Being a hippie is not about the way you dress, the drugs you do, its about the mentality you have.
Hippies are usually calm and understand others feelings. They discuss ideas and are usually against most things the government does (which doesnt mean we dont love our country).
There is 1 difference between most hippies. The ones who do drugs, and dont.
Dont do drugs: Believe in all the same things, but may not think drugs are good because your body is a temple.
Do drugs: Believes all the stated above but believe that "your body is a temple" Therefore it should expierience mind alterations to expand the mind.
Basically, hippies vary. They are good fun p...
Refers to individuals that pursue predictable life paths of primary education followed by college / university and relatively secure, full-time employment in established companies.
Such individuals may occasionally perform some sort of community service but spend most of their spare time engaging in popularized social activities like watching mainstream sports, movies, patronizing membership gyms, shopping, visiting popular pubs and restaurants, and travelling to commonly visited tourist destinations. Such individuals generally only interact with people with similar backgrounds.
Opposites of cowards include non-traditional artists and musicians, certain entrepreneurs, non-mainstream political activists, Peace Corps volunteers, and others who take riskier, more creative, or less predictable paths in life.
A group of cookie cutter cowards handed out corporate business cards at the MBA reunion.
Some one who gose to local non-mainstream shows and moshes.
"Dude, I can tell you already, There is going to be a fuck load of local moshers at this show."
Alternative Rock music that didn't cross over into the mainstream(by choice or not) after the "alternative revolution" of the 90's. Typically, the music is relased on small "indie" labels. Indie Rock bands do music that doesn't necessarily appeal to wide mainstream audiences. There are a variety of reasons for this but some of the more common examples are the sound being to raw and abrasive(i.e to much distortion/feedback), the lyrics being to cryptic and abstract or the production and musicianship being to amateurish. In more recent years however some indie bands such as Modest Mouse, The Shins and The White Stripes have found some mainstream success. These bands however are still considered indie because they still have a decidedly non-mainstream sound.
90's indie rock-Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Superchunk, Archers of Loaf, Neutral Milk Hotel, Fugazi, Modest Mouse, Radiohead(controversially)
2000's indie rock-The White Stripes, The Shins, The Arcade Fire, Death Cab for Cutie, The Strokes, Artic Monkeys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs
90's-lo-fi, emo(went mainstream in 2000's), post-hardcore, noise pop, dream pop, neo-psychedelia, shoegaze, indie pop
2000's-garage rock revival, post-punk/new wave revival, freak folk, new weird America, dance punk, indietronica
A networking website for Goths. It was created by the king of bats, Jet. This website is affiliated with a clothing company called Fuckthemainstream, which is ironic because VampireFreaks continues to attract more and more emo and scene kids (who all shop at Hot Topic) everyday, even to the point of letting My Chemical Romance create a VF profile. Profiles include a profile rating system, which seperates the cool & popular goths from the uncool & unpopular goths, even though all goth kids supposedly 'don't give a shit' about being popular.
If you want access to the entire site or other privilages, you have to pay for a premium account, which is pointless because what can possibly be cool enough on that site that you'd have to pay to access it? Oh yeah, adding moar music to your already shitty playlist of nothing but Combichrist and Mindless Self-Indulgence songs. Also, with a premium account, your photo album can hold at least twice the capacity of photos of yourself crying fake blood and grayscale images of dead and/or bloody roses.
VampireFreaks has opened up a clothing outlet in New York, which will then be made into a chain of stores, and then turn into another Hot Topic; thus defeating it's own purpose as a non-mainstream company.
VampireFreaks is a mediocre website.
