a musical band that originated in San Jose; their musical style is unique and experimental, therefore difficult to define; anything from ambient noise to folky guitar to "rocky" tunes....check it out...Knife Play
Xiu Xiu musical influences seem to be the Cure and Joy Division, but to compare the bands to one another would be unfair to all mentioned (they all have their own twist).
Name of one of the PLaya Hata's on Chapelle's show, he is also a competetor in The World Series of Dice
World Series of Dice Introductions: Fyuk Xiu, Asia
|3.||Smells like Fallujah|
To smell of death, like the city of Fallujah
A really smell person who wore the same close for a long time.

Term comes from a Xiu Xiu song
Timmy wore the same clothes all weekend and after the weekend of drinking was over everyone commented on how he smells like Fallujah.
Man I smell like Fallujah.
a mispronunciation of the name of the band Xiu Xiu
"What are you doing tonight, man?"
"Oh, I gotta take my sister and her dumb emo friends here tonight to see Shwee Shwee!"
A band that hipsters are too cool to like anymore because now they are done with high school and attend art school and/or moved to a city, and had to dig deeper into the more sophisticated self zone, aquiring tastes that no one will know about for at least the next 2-3 years, when they will have to update themselves once again (hint: when Xiu Xiu, Blonde Redhead and Q and Not U are completely for indie rock poseurs only... just a matter of time)
Modest Mouse... I never really liked them anyway.
Cao Pi (oddly enough, pronounced 'cow pee') was the first emperor of the Wei kingdom (located in northern china. Capital at Xu Chang. Western Wei contained Chang An, currently known as Xi'an) in the three kingdoms period of china. He was the son of Cao Cao (slayer of Lu Bu and many others) and husband to many wives, the most notable being Empress Zhen, who he later forced to commit suicide.
Cao Pi died soon after gaining the throne, though, and passed his rank to son Cao Rui, who did a pissant job for the most part.
Cao Pi is remembered throughout China as a tyrant and cold-hearted man. He was written in the book 'Romance of the Three Kingdoms' to have commited atrocious acts, but due to the bias in this book nobody can be sure.
Relatives: Cao Zhen, Cao Zhi, Cao Xiong, Cao Ren, Cao Cao, Cao Rui, Cao Xiu (notable)
Cao Pi, in a plot with another woman, forced Empress Zhen to commit suicide.
Cao Pi is commonly concieved by scholars to have been wronged by Lo Kuan Chung's writings.
At one time, perhaps, the taxonomy of indie kids could be limited to one definition, but as the word becomes increasingly bandied about in mainstream circles and the image thoroughly commodified by youth-orienting clothing chains, several distinct sub-types have emerged:more...
THE ART-POP KID: Generally shy and eccentric, probably a giant nerd with several guilty pleasure hobbies, the Art-Pop Kid legitimately loves the music itself and the spirit of the subculture, but maintains a protective distance from the culture itself as to not be wholly associated with it and its various hanger-ons (see below). The Art-Pop Kid thinks the music is important, he has a very Romantic sensibility, and is legitimately upset/shocked when outsiders accuse him of merely hugging trends. Seventeen years ago, the Art-Pop kid was in someone's basement, listening to the early incarnation of indie rock, and wondering what to get his girlfriend for her birthday.

THE AVANT-POP KID: Like the Art-Pop Kid but more confident and probably a little crazy. The Avant-Pop Kid doesn't so much look down on the mainstream for lacking substance, so much as he or she just exists in their own bubble, totally oblivious to the realities of the outside world. Seventeen years ago, the Avant-Pop Kid was shooting heroin, discussing Baudrillard with hobos at the bus station, and rolling their paint-slathered bodies around on a canvas.
