'Yindies' sounds frighteningly like the 'idiots' from Nathan Barley.

The idiots are self regarding consumer slaves, oblivious to the paradox of their uniform individuality. They sculpt their hair to casual perfection. They wear their wastebands below their balls. They babble into handheld twit machines about that cool email with the woman being bummed by a wolf. Their cool friend made it. He's an idiot too.
*

I've been thinking about this. "Idiots" have managed to get a job which they deem to be cool, probably in media or some sort of fashionable consdumer industry thus making them incredibly self satisfied twats as they get to be arbiters of taste. The yindie has the standard soul destroying job the rest of us has but desperately purchases the goods that the Idiots produce in an attempt to convince themselves they are still an urban warrior of some sort.

Idiots flog shit to Yindies becuase the idiots have convinced the yindies that they're who they want to be. Maybe?

Yes, I'm independent, but by no means am I "indie," by the conventional media definition.
Why do we need these silly labels, anyway? Can't people just be people, regardless of their generation?

So you prefer a more individual definition on the term indie?!

We need those labels, to define and find ourselves and others in these changing and fragmented times.

So a Yindie is a combination of this


And this

In fact, the article I read, gave the Chris Martin/Gwynythy Payltroy-relationship the arche-typic Yindie-role-models.

Than, the 80s were "Yumpy." *bounce*

QUOTE (dabariocca @ Jan 17 2006, 11:43 AM)
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.
*


You got my masterplan, this was in fact thought off as some kind of spin-off to the subculture-thread, but more a "subculture-threat"

I collect chocolate bar wrappers.

I would put a winky here if I wasn't such a snob.

That was a long time ago.

Anyway, now I have them framed and displayed in a cutting-edge Shoreditch gallery that used to be a knocking-shop as part of my visual essay on Warhol and his effect on the like, culture of today.

That doesn't explain the whisks.

I should also like to add that I like to bully people to increase my own innate feelings of superiority.

I don't know. I guess converse and Paris. Converse became the orignal Yindie foot wear in the grunge era. Thanks to the typo the parody parodied the parody (assuming it was a parody).

I can identifiy with Yindie. And to do as been done, I will count my Yindie-meter: I drink every kind of fancy life-style coffee. I am individual. I don't wear big labels. I use W-Lan and google constantly. I don't have any iPod or mp3-player. I am a pop-culture-fashist. I wear strange beards to stress my individuality (and the eyesight of others).

I somehow like to fit into this label. It suits me.

But do you have a tatoo of some indigeneos culture of "where ever" you've never encountered personally?

In fact, I even invented a culture (nothing Tolkienesk, just way of life), including Tats, but haven't been brave enough to go through the ritual of manlyness...

As Crutch said, it would then be Yumppie.
