I drink J20, don't have W-Lan or an iPod (although I really want the new ones, they seem decent), I don't try to be too 'individual', certainly don't try and be independant and I wear clothes, nothing special.

I'm between 14 and 15 years old and lack a job.

I'm indifferent as to whether I fit into the Yindie category or not. I'm not gonna strive to be individual. Who cares?

I'm between the ages of 20 and 35, have a wireless LAN and an iPod, but that's about where I draw the line.

Yes, I'm independent, but by no means am I "indie," by the conventional media definition. And while I respect and enjoy a cup of chai every once in a while, I'll never be found ordering a "chai latte" while out on the town. Black coffee, on the other hand...

I've never set foot inside Urban Outfitters -- ever -- but I will buy Levis when they're on sale... I do have a mobile, but it's a basic, no-frills model, which I use only for emergency/time-sensitive communications.

Does that make me a "Yindie," then? I should say not.

Why do we need these silly labels, anyway? Can't people just be people, regardless of their generation?

I remeber when Yuppie meant "Young upwardly mobile person"
How 80's retro.
So a Yindie is a combination of this


And this



Culminating in this


I hope to fuck I don't fall into this category. I have a job and an Mp3 player but it's not an ipod.

The "Yindie" is us. The Yindie is the follow-up to the Yuppie (Young Urban People). It is a cross-breed between "Yuppie" and "Indie" (Independent). So it is either an independent Yuppie or a Y(oung Urban People)-Indie...

Yes, that's exactly it. Just this generation's Yuppies (which is young, urban professtional, btw).

I always thought a Yuppie was a "Young upwardly-mobile professional"
So it seems there's some confusion on the matter tongue.gif

Well I like chai latte, google, am 20-35 and have a job. That makes me an average young person that isn't so keen on coffee.

That sums me up!!

I certainly don't have an iPod. Not too sure about this W-lan thing. We have a cable internet connection and there's a wireless modem thingy in the loungeroom which transmits it into here. Is that the same thing? And does it count if you don't actually have a clue what it is anyway?

What's so independent or individual or any other kind of indie about drinking Chai, being 20-35 and having a job anyway? It's only like a third of the population!

In light of the previously-displayed advert, I will defend my iPod: My CD player (with MP3 capability) broke, my parents presented it to me as a birthday gift, and I ditched the damned earbuds the moment I tried them, in favour of my old, cheap Sony headphones. And I never, never thrash about, like a pickerel on a clothes line, to my tunes, and certainly not in sillhouette.

"The Yindie is between 20 and 35 years old and has a job."


That's rather expansive isn't it?

Hmmm Yindie... I would prefer Twat myself.

Doesn't matter what age we are in or what steps we have taken there will always, always be twats.

I guess Yindies are people who are "fashinably" alternative. Not through freedom of thought or expression but because they want to appear intellectual. It all started with "Reallity bites" and brings us back to the subculture thread. Alternative is no longer an alternative. everyone is doing it.
