stupid 80's shit thing, with one shoulder showing. Or ripped, so it hangs off the shoulder. I ain't just talking indie rock twats, preppie girls sport this all the time.

Also, jean mini-skirt (stupid enough) with tight stretchy shirt that goes down almost to the edge of the miniskirt. Then a fucking huge belt where the tight stretchy shirt should end at the waist line (but doesn't). Pair that with uggs, huge sunglasses, and the above mentioned 80's one-shoulder-pulled-to-the-side Flashdance shirt, and you have The Girl of Today.

faux vintage. Like the shirts that actually have the word "vintage" emblazoned on them. What is that? Oh, and anything with letters printed on the ass. That's just stupid. But it's REALLY bad when it's a 10 year old girl with "fuck me" or something equally ignorant.

And I agree with the 80s thing. It was ugly then. It's ugly now. Please get rid of your jelly bracelets.

And if deadcityrebel is talking about what I think he's talking about, that is my all-time least favorite trend. Especially when it's a chick over, say, 25.

I like the sunglasses but they look stupid on me.
Posted: Mar 10, 2006 4:28 pm
 
I hope the sunglasses thing excludes the kinda large fake 80's cop style ray ban's. I like the ones i got, but would have to chunk 'em if they weren't Goner approved.

Don't know if it's all that trendy now, but, hoodies with neighborhood names on them that the idiot who is wearing probably has never been to because they just got off the bus in the big smoke and spent their last 50 at the rock & roll barbershop to coif their doo or perhaps get that star tattoo on the back of their neck.

Okay, just on shoes for the moment:

Fuck those twats that wear Samba classics. You've ruined them for me and I even used to play indoor soccer.

Also got to slag off Converse. Maybe I'm too old and need special care but Chuck's have got to be the most uncomfortable, over-priced, short lasting pieces of footwear ever. Plus, it hurts when some fat-assed garage rocker (chic/bo) steps on your feet when wearing. And they make your socks stink.

i got a nice pair of those. i stole them from a thrift store. The lenses are pink! they're made by a company that makes basketballs. i've stolen so many pairs of sunglasses from thrift stores in my life. it's ridiculous.

Those yellow "Support Our Troops" magnets that so many people seem to have stuck to their vehicles in the US are pretty lame (although they seem to have thinned out a lot between my last two visits, which is telling, I guess) - technically, doesn't every american already support the troops with the bulk of their taxes? How does buying a magnet at a gas station support american troops in Iraq?

I saw a green one yesterday that was much more up-front and made me laugh out loud: "Support Magnetic Ribbons".

Especially when you can still get them at Walgreen's for $6. The rule of sunglasses is: the more you spend, the more likely you are to lose them or break them. I have had my Walgreen's State Trooper glasses for 5 years. I CAN'T lose them. If I threw them out my car window, they'd be on my dresser when I got home.

Theres been a rash of purses covered with huge sequence round shiney things. All the fat chicks at the mall have em.

Now for my trendy hates:

-Bratz Dolls

-Bobblehead girls aka anorexics enabled by family and friends.

-Yes--those furry caveman boots that have the lacing up the front!

-People who can't sew a lick, who rip up vintage clothes and randomly sew it back together with no imagination or thought of how it might fit and then call themselves "Indie Designers" and sell that stuff for $80.

-The insistence on having an asymetrical haircut that is supposed to make you "different" but it makes you the "same" (one of my hairdresser pals is currently making bank off all y'all art-schoolers, so keep it up).

-The New Folk, freaky or not.

-Bands that walk around together all the time all dressed up like they are going on stage in five minutes. Unless they are the Baseball Furies cos I saw them do that one time in Memphis and it was hilarious. I'm talking about These New Bands.

-Sales Associates at semi-fancy dept stores that are now being trained to be really snooty and pretend they are working at some hyperposh boutique (um, Nordstroms anyone?).

man they breed those girls like bunnies in the south (i think those girls probably breed like bunnies too), it had to of started here and then has become perpetuated by Paris "restraining order" Hilton.

Yeah, Paris gave the war cry to all those girls just waiting for a Mystic Tan and some skunk streaks. And bad pale blue sundresses. UGH.

Sad thing is...those girls are breeding everywhere. It is like that here in "Oh my god, you wear makeup, Kristin???!?!" land. In the burbs and Downtown clubs.

Let's go ahead and just put Marc Jacobs ads in there too.

-Those mini denim (usually) jackets

-Stylized fawns, seagulls and other harmless and "cute" animals as decoration on clothing etc.

-Hunter Lodge Chic becoming popular, thus expensive and outta my range.

Also- I'm pretty sure this is everywhere- but the phenomenal amount of ultra skinny hipster guys that seem to be multiplying by the thousand that live in my 'hood- I keep thinking they're gonna blow away in the wind. Where do they make people who are 6'6" and 125lbs? Is there a factory in North Portland that I don't know about?

And those stupid people who keep their bandanas visible.

And girls who wear ugly, New Blance-style running shoes.

"to see thirty of those on an suv makes me think of native war horses or whatever with the horses butt marked up with hand prints showing how many kills or whatever"

I saw this couple here in Seattle with their beat to shit Datsun B-210. The car was covered with other people's magnets. They make a game out of stealing magnets from the stupid schmucks that buy them. It's like an instant ART CAR.

I support stealing from others; just as long you don't steal from me. HA-HA-Ha

Last year I saw a little girl at the zoo with a shirt that read, "Can you AFFORD me?" She was no older than 12. I wanted to give her mother a serious beat down.

-art school assholes doing 'arts and crafts'(knitting, macramie, quilting and the like)

I think I just lost my Goner membership. I'd never do macrame though, and quilting doesn't interest me much either. And I only took ConEd classes at MassArt, 'cuz I can't afford four years of art school only to work at a coffee shop the rest of my life.

but the phenomenal amount of ultra skinny hipster guys that seem to be multiplying by the thousand that live in my 'hood-

I'm not too offended by that 'cuz I hate all those years when sports + punk were the big thing and everyone wanted to look like Henry Rollins. I always loved them skinny guys.

I'll add a few:

- twentysomething guys with beards.
- All those assholes like J.Lo, Nicky Hilton and Sara Jessica Parker for whom it is not enough to already be rich and famous, they have to have their own clothing line/perfume. Fuck you. I refuse to line your cunty wallets.
- Dudes with acoustic guitars doing covers of "classic punk songs". You bore me to tears. Shut the fuck up.

hey now, i like the large sunglasses. although seeing them on fucktards does irk me slightly. i've worn them for years and will continue wearing them long after the novelty wears off of them for other people. started about 8 years ago with my old roommate buying me a pair of huge ass gucci sunglasses, and it's continued since then. i also like those ugly new balance shoes, but i wear them to RUN IN, not to wear out. i have special ones that are specifically meant for running.

i want to set people who wear ugg boots on fire. they wear those stupid things in the middle of summer. unless you're trekking on the tundra, ugg boots are highly unnecessary.

shorts or pants that have things written on the ass should not be sported by anyone at all, much less anyone under the age of 18. that's just gross. it's no wonder they've instituted uniforms at city schools in memphis. whoever lets their daughters wear those kind of shits is just asking for them to be pregnant by the age of 14.

i really cannot stand people wearing bandanas of any color, hipsters especially. i mean, really. you are not a gangster. you have never been a gangster, and you will never be a gangster. end of discussion.

the absolute worst thing for me to lay eyes upon is GAUCHO PANTS. i fucking loathe, hate, and despise those ugly ass things. i really wish they would go the fuck away forever. worst thing is seeing my friends wear them. why don't they just instead go buy some real pajama pants and wear them out? it'd be cheaper.

i can't stand those half jackets either. buy a whole jacket, dumbass. it'd look a billion times better.

and i agree with you, fierydrunk. i hate bratz dolls. those things are hideous.

OH god. I wore a couple of old vintage gauchos with high waists cos I love the high waist denim look with tall high heel boots. It lengthens me out. And shit man, I gotta Rhoda, MTM and Annie Hall fixation. The ones I hate are those jersey ones that fold over at the waist like yoga pants.

They can look a lot better if they are more like cropped pants, mid calf, and made of a nice wool or tweed.

* All these MySpace/mp3-blog bands that suck and sound like Modern English.
* Bluetooth headsets.
* These "emo" clowns whose band names contain 10 words.
* Man-pris.
* Gaucho pants are terrible, too, unless you've got a great ass. Flying Saucer on Monday nights usually has a half-dozen or so girls who definitely have permission to wear these stupid things.

I-pods

i don't mind i-pods so much for the portability factor of having lots of music to listen to personally, but i think it is turbo-geigh when people use them to dj. it's like PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY SPIN RECORDS.

Ipod DJs are so ludricrous. I may have told this, but at my bachelorette party at the Towne Lounge, the DJ was ON THE STAGE with all this equipment, headphones...and his iPod.

Another awful fashion trend is all all the youngsters who have their own barely known fashion lines/shops and get interviewed in local weekly about "DO's" and "DONT's". Inevitably they say something that makes me wanna throw a pie in their face.

Metro Sexual japanese anime rock n roll hair on guys

I personally love this hair on any man or woman who has enough hair to carry it off. I'm always trying to convince my clients to wear big puffy ami yumi anime hair. Coolest hair band ever: The Jailbirds.

Also the shirts that little girls wear that say things like "Hottie" or "Flirt". Kids that are 10 years old do not buy there own clothes. Their parents may as well just pimp them out. Its sick.

I dunno about ten years old, but I see alot of 14-15 year olds wearing Playboy and Hustler logo t-shirts. You might as well just push them into the van and help the guy tie the rope.

Kids who front like they are really into porn and orgy's and free love, yet are barely past dry-fucking.



Throw girls who vaguely promose three-ways/their own bi-sexuality into this category, as well. They turn out to be full o' shit. Or they take it back three months into the relationship, "I never said that! Did I?". You either eat pussy or you don't eat pussy. A guy is gonna wanna fuck you regardless, I don't get the need to fake being a homosexual in order to attract a mate. No guy really cares. It's not like a guy would be interested in a girl, start talking to her, and then be like "You're NOT bi? Peace!". It's so stupid.

Kids running away from a abusive step-father and moving cross-country to be with someone they met on the bright Eyes mesage board

But what if the dude just got out of prison, is a sweetie, and is making good money selling weed?

Oh and as far as the art-fag wanna-be's, add girls who have "had their stuff shown at a local gallery" and casually mention it 500 times in a conversation into this mix. This usually translates into having a badly rendered "abstract" painting hung up a coffee house with a $20 price tag attatched to it, and anybody on earth is capable of doing it, provided they can bring a canvas into the store, and the wall hasn't been completely covered up by the rest of the no-talents.

Also add girls who MAJOR in Creative Writing and yap about how they are going to be the next Sylvia Plath, yet, ummm....ummm...don't really have any ideas for stories yet, umm...per say. But umm...hmmm.

The whole eco-core scene needs to go.

20 somethings who adopt the mountain man look/Easy Rider look(large unkempt beards, infrequent showering)

Furry boots
Girls with chest tattoos
People with dumb band tattoos
Dudes in girl's pants
Manpurses
Indie rock/emo homoeroticism(we do it for the chixxx......yeh right, cockbreath)

Also what's with people wearing huge oversized white sunglasses?

- Personal MySpace pages (and everything that goes with it)
- Bands influenced by Hanoi Rocks/GNR/Johnny Thunders
- Rich kids doing heroin (see above [not necessarily a bad thing])
- Overusing yer cell phone

Here are some trends I am hating on recently:

Northern Soul Night DJ's... you're a reformed skinhead, no one cares that you bought some dumb 45's and also completely neglect things like Volt/Stax for all these dumb drunk white kids.

80's Night... 'nuff said.

People talking about doing things for the art/rock/literature scene in your town and then going to said 80's night, getting drunk, and forgetting everything they said.

HC/punk kids all wearing the same thing. Black hoodie, black stretch pants, plus, bad tattoos, running shoes.

Girls dating douchebags.... oh wait, that is apparently not a current trend.

Personal Blogs are the dumbest thing. It's like, hey people care about my life. I just hope I can have a converstation with them that goes like "Knock knock" "who's there" "Someone who doesn't give a shit about your stupid life"

bandanas in the back pocket. nothing against bandanas but i dont see these people wearing them or putting them any other place besides their back pocket.

"bandanas in the back pocket."

Isn't that some sort of sign for when you're cruising for Gay sex?....bandanna in the left pocket means one thing...right pocket means another....I dunno....that's what Arman told me.....

I'm throwing in "I'm a Pirate" jokes or other references to piracy. When you say "Argh, I'm a Pirate" you're really saying "My life is so horrendously pointless I'm spending my parents' trust fund to live in an overpriced rental somewhere between North 20-40 on Alberta Street, play 'country and / or 'bluegrass' in the backyard and complain non-stop about 'gentrification' while sitting in the vegitarian cafe located on top of some poor family's house that couldn't make the payment 6 months ago". I'm gald the fuckers hang huge jolly roger flags in the front room windows of the house. That way I know where to set the fires.
They also have bikes that are pipe bombs.

Are "uggs" those boots that look like eskimo boots but have neon green, blue, and pink all over them? Who thought that looked good?

I am guilty of having Asian Hair Envy.
Posted: Mar 13, 2006 7:26 pm
 
I think it looks good on the Asians, but kinda 'off' on the white persuasion. I dunno, it is just pretty omnipresent here in the PDX hip scene with the girls & guys all having what amounts to the same angled choppy hair with lotsa product. I wanna see something different.

Anyone wanna know what a huge chunk of Portland is like? This about sums it up.
Posted: Mar 13, 2006 7:32 pm
 
yeah, but it's cool to be a pirate if you're hanging out at the Buccaneer Lounge. we'll all be saying Arrrggghhh when the Cheater Slicks are playing tonight! and I love the plush vinyl jolly roger there... and the crew booth, and of course the poop deck. come to Memphis and walk the plank!

Lemme put in the addition of the trend of "Car Haters", i.e. Bike Fanatics who also are miserable and mean about people who drive.

Par example, this AM at the coffee shop, all the dark clad bicyclists were assembling to hang out, drink coffee and not work or whatever goes on in their lives and someone who resembled one of their own, left the shop and got into his really cool butter yellow circa 1970 Dodge Dart. One of the more lycra-style bicyclists (i.e. more money; can work in a coffee shop on the computer all day) commented on how cool the car was. This awful dark Carhardt clad, expensive fixed-gear bike-having, monotonous-toned bitch growled, "Yeah, I guess. As far as CARS GO (snicker)."

Cars go farther and faster than you, honeypie.

this is highly annoying when you have a lit class with one of these assholes. i really wish they would go ahead and do like sylvia plath and off themselves.

but it's cool to be a pirate if you're hanging out at the Buccaneer Lounge.

agreed. by far my favorite bar in town.

Bike Fanatics who also are miserable and mean about people who drive

this is one thing i cannot stand. it's like i am sorry that memphis isn't well equipped for that sort of thing. like i'm going to quit a job that gives me benefits so i can go work in midtown for minimum wage and bike everywhere. jerks. (i am sure that these are a rare breed here, but more prevalent in portland.)

i hate the sound those things make. if they would just not chirp like that then maybe i wouldn't hate them so much. i used to have one when i was a courier, but i only used it for my job to get my dispatches or addresses. it got on my nerves even then.
