Listen in, listen Ian!
How to be an Indie Girl!|
Wise words, wise words.
Does "Charity shop tat" count as "vintage" Jewellery? 'Cause I can cover that. Sort of.
This article = word.
I'd rather listen to my own brain being minced under a muddy tractor than most of that stuff. And I wear black and dye my hair silly colours from time to time - I'm offically not indie! I'm actually quite pleased about this.
I hate all those bands. I like skinny jeans, but you know, for me that just means they actually fit my little bandy legs. Mmm, lycra.
I'm afraid vegetarianism didn't help me lose weight at all. Something about the cheese and the bread and such. Also it turns out pastry and fried potato product are also vegetarian, which hasn't helped. Still, wise advice indeed.
The smoking would help, though.
every single word in that article is true.
then again given how many hits Why We Hate Indie Kids
has got over the last 8 years (over fifty-seven THOUSAND, without a massive amount of spam), you can't blame them for writing it.
also it is very interesting that all the GOOD things in your article are BAD things in Tom and Maura's...
Oh dear, I appear to have followed this article to the letter. Apart from being thin. But I do love to listen to The Mountain Goat.
I would have thought that rule number one in the "How to be an American indie kid" list would be to listen to British bands?
p.s. If you want to be more indie, tickets just went on sale this morning for The Primitives at the Scala next April; Ticketweb only at the moment I think.
