Slappy must not have seen any of my discussion about PTH with Dethmaiden and how I wasn't a fan of the last cd because of the lyrics. All that believe her, breathe her, leave her, expose, rose, disclose, compose crap was too over the top and cheeseball for me. The reason I liked the new album was it didn't have those stupid lyrics.
I don't consider cheeseball lyrics hipster. Those Sunbather lyrics I posted are 100% hipster and you know it. Unless you think weearing a sweater cap in September in California in the front row of a concert isn't hipster. BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Dude, nobody ever said "there's no such thing as hipsters". But calling somebody a hipster because they listen to a certain style of music is absurd. And you're right, I must've missed that conversation between you and Dethmaiden. Even so, personal lyrics aren't "hipster". Last I checked plenty of bands like KSE have lyrics about their feelings and such. What hipsters. And please explain what the fuck you mean by the bolded part
. I have long, curly hair. Now you're just fucking stretching. From all of this that's going on, you're just a crusty old man who's mad at what all the whippersnappers are doing on your lawn. Check yourself into an old folks home.

Disarm the Descent was my number 1 album this year, and I listened to Nails, and Mouth of the Architect, and Deafheaven, and Gorguts and any number of other obscure and underground artists and records.
Liking more mainstream artists and liking more underground releases shouldn't be mutually exclusive to each other, and acting holier than thou because you like one more than the other is totally childish, and frankly idiotic. The KsE bashing is stupid and childish, and the Sunbather bashing is stupid and childish.
This whole discussion is fucking moronic.
Of course that statement is extremely blanket and doesn't speak for everybody. You and quite a few other posters are an exception, but it can be applied to a lot of people, like maybe people who go to 3 concerts a year, 2 of which are sponsored by Rockstar. But when all is said and done, you're right, this is all moronic.
EDIT: I looked back at the photo, there's a guy in a beanie. Big fucking whoop. It was a little chili that night, by California standards, and we were in California. Cool dude
