next time you walk into forever 21 or heritage 1981 I better not hear the sentence:
"this is so indie" fall out of your mouth.
Indie isn't a package of certain clothes, shoes, and bands. Indie is unique. Indie kids are NOT in any way, shape, or form an emo kid. They don't listen to Drop Dead Gorgeous, The Devil Wears Prada, or any of that screamo shit. We prefer to slap on some big headphones with Ben Folds voice ringing in our ears. Classic punk bands will even suit us. Indie kids don't listen to the bands with the crazy straightened hair, colorfully patterned sweatshirts, or scary skin tight leather pants. NO THANK YOU. Indies prefer a nice cardigan, loosely fit skinny jeans, and a comfortable shirt. (NO, ASHLEE SIMPSON ISN'T INDIE!) Indie boys do prefer their hair long, but don't suffocate it with hairspray. Indie girls do sport bangs or side bangs, but don't dye the crap out of their hair and straighten it to death. Also, indie kids wouldn't be caught dead in anything emo-related, such as hello kitty, skelanimals, or anything sold at Hot Topic. Urban Outfitters is a pretty indie store, but as soon as all the emos take it over, the indies are moving on to something better. Unlike emo/scene kids Indie kids are not OBSESSED over myspace. Yeah we probably have one, but don't have a "whore code" or on a "train". Max adds don't tempt us, if someone adds us, then sure, I'll accept, and we won't deny because they don't have a lip piercing and never talk to them because they're not "emo" enough. Please, we're all fed up with the emo myspace whores selfishness and vanity. Indies are selfless and honestly, most of then i know, think they're pretty ugly but are confident nonetheless. Now if you're some pathetic scene kid looking up indie, because you think it'd be cool to be one. Press home and continue being the unoriginal person you are.
Indie poser: I just saw Nick and Norah's infinite play list and i know all the bands in the movie and no one else did. I'm so Indie. Seriously, give me a name of any band, and I'll know it.
Indie Elite: Really? If so, then do you know the Fiery Furnaces?
Indie Poser: err no.
Indie Elite: Deerhoof?
Indie Poser: no.....
Indie Elite: Snowden?
Indie Poser: Nope. But I do listen to Damien Rice.
Indie Elite: *walks away*
