What just about every scene kid and hipster under the age of 25 calls themselves these days. Many own Canon Rebel xtis and rely heavily on cropping and Photoshop filters to give their otherwise mundane photos an "artsy" feel. It is also not uncommon to see them wielding Lomography cameras (usually a Holga, now that they're sold at Urban Outfitters) on any given day. Typically, these "photographers" cite Diane Arbus, Robert Mapplethorpe, or, in the case of those Vice Magazine devotees, Terry Richardson, Cobrasnake, or Richard Kern, as major influences, because they couldn't name any other photographers to save their lives.

The typical subjects of their photographs include, but are not limited to: pidgeon-toed girls in Converse that have been drawn on with ballpoint pens and/or Sharpies, flowers/weeds growing out of cracks in sidewalks, juxtapositions of objects that typically don't go together (in one such case, a Queen of Hearts playing card on a cracked sidewalk), a girl who looks like something out of an American Apparel ad smoking a cigarette, decaying buildings, and just about anything that looks "vintage" (ie, yellowing washing machines in a laundromat).
16-year-old Dylan took to calling herself a photographer after receiving her Canon Rebel for Christmas, and snapping a few photos of sidewalks in Decatur.
"These photos represent the irony of life," she said.
"And you represent the bane of modern photography," David replied.

An artist whose legacy has been completely trashed and reduced to kitsch by the modern-day hipster populous.

Ironically enough, Warhol probably would have enjoyed this, as it would have meant money for him (thank you, Urban Outfitters and The Andy Warhol Foundation), which, at the end of the day, was all he ever really cared about, to the extent of alienating some of the only people who ever truly cared about him (Edie Sedgwick not included).

Trustafarian/youthquaker/all-around "it girl" of '65 from a mentally unstable paternal lineage, believed by pseudo-mod teens and twenty-somethings to be something of a demigod, although she was a deplorable actor who could not memorize the most basic of scripts (in the few Warhol films in which she actually had to act, that is), is believed to have been a pathological liar, and eventually wound up a strung-out moll of a biker gang before getting married for a very short time, subsequently dying of an "acute barbiturate overdose" in '71.

Her once again marketable face and name (thanks in part to the 2006 flick, "Factory Girl") is now slapped across Urban Outfitters, Hottopic, and 80s Purple shirts and totes as far as the eye can see.

A slang term popular in early/mid 1980s Germany and Austria, which was the equivalent of the English term, "Yuppie". This neologism was used in much the same way to mock a new wave of American-influenced young urban sophisticate twenty-somethings in Austria and West Germany at the time.

Translated from German, "junge Römer" means "young Roman(s)" (the term can denote both singular - when used for a male - and plural), likening the heightened style of living of these young Europeans to that of many of the extravagant upperclass Romans in Rome's Golden Age.

The term was popularized further by Austrian pop/rock singer, Falco, in 1984 with his song by the same name, which glamorized the junge Römer lifestyle (Falco counted himself among this group of people).
From Falco's, Junge Römer:
"Junge Römer, die Nacht ist jung wie ihr,
vergesst das Morgen."

Translation: Young Romans, the night is young like you, forget the morning.

A j-pop group born from the money-making powerhouse that is Hello! Project (also responsible for Morning Musume), aimed primarily at pre-school to secondary-aged children that was popular from 2000 to 2004, when the group was put on "indefinite hiatus". Most of their songs were about counting, food groups, etc., with a smattering of English phrases taught by the group's one American member.

In spite of the fact that this was a group for small children, many American high school (and in some sad cases, post-high school) otaku cite Mini Moni as one of their favourite j-pop bands, because they're just so KAWAII! These people typically refuse to acknowledge that the only people over the age of five at Mini Moni concerts were parents of the children attending. It is also arguable that these people understand none of the lyrics that they so enthusiastically sing along with, as if they did, there is no way they would be calling themselves Mini Moni fans in lieu of having an IQ of 70.

Arguably Jean-Pierre Jeunet's most famous international film, favoured especially by Americans who like to feel/sound cultured by listing a French film as one of their top ten favourites without having to watch the "deeper" works of Godard, Rivette, Ozon, Pialat, etc. For most, this is the only modern French film they've ever seen (with the exception of possibly "Delicatessen" -also by Jeunet- or "Science of Sleep"), and they tend to believe that French society truly is as it is presented in this film, which couldn't be further from the truth.
