Hey fa what's the next countercultural movement going to be, and where will it be centered?
Eg hipsters in Williamsburg, hippies in Haight-Ashbury, what's next?
different brands of hipster will evolve, I think there will be east coast and west coast versions, with NY and maybe one other city being eastern hubs, and SF + Portland + LA being western hubs.
Things like that do not happen anymore. There are a million huge movements happening and dying all the time. The communication age speeds everything up, as a rule, and makes it all overlap. There won't be another movement in the sense that you're thinking.
that's what happened in the 70s 80s and 90s
then in the 2000 they all conformed into hipsters
hipsters(1950s or 2000s)>hippies(late 60s or 2010s) and then it fractures into multiple sub cultures
time is cyclical and all that shit, everything that has happened already will happy again, the cycle never ends
damn. im so ready to be a punk right now fuck yeah
carles is the dude who wrote hipster runoff and invented chillwave genre, he's back again and writes at carles.buzz about internet culture and auth music
funny social criticism
sorry to shill
>carles and post metal/pre 2013 /mu/ are dead
>What I really think is going to happen is that tattoos and piercings are going to lose their appeal again.
the future is now
Here's my take on everything, we are moving into higher planes of novelty at an increasing rate. Defined styles are and will get more and more vague, and complete individual expression will become much more prevalent. Everything is rearranging into infinity.
not the same guy, but literally every single person i know outside of me and one of my good friends either
A. has 1+ tattoos (not neccessarily unique or good ones
B. has 1+ piercings
>tfw you are the only person in your western LA neighborhood that is clean shaven, didn't adopt the hipster version of the hitler youth, has no tats or piercings
I think these are the most accurate. even compared to 5 years ago, everything is so easily accessible through the internet that no trend can develop on its own, untouched in its epicenter. people are more aware than ever and its easier than ever for people to be trendy. cultural movements aren't centered anywhere physical anymore, they occur online. you don't have to live in a trendy neighborhood to be a part of a movement anymore, all it takes is frequenting the right sites. its for that reason that no one movement will occur again; movements and trends will continue to shorten in lifespan until everyone exists in a complete individualistic plurality
Counterculture feels like a waste of damn time. People end up conforming with each other until the counterculture becomes mainstream culture. In the end it isn't your own style if you are copying it. People always end up being stuck up little pricks about it like I see many hipsters and punks are (punks seem like dicks looking at the way they act).
If you really want to be countercultural just wear whatever you want.
The most different thing to do is to reject being different all together. When the fringes get more and more crowded, Mass Indie turns
toward the middle. Having mastered difference, the truly cool attempt to master sameness.
Well, I thought of people doing that but to me, in the end people just end up changing from style to style, whoever having found the next countercultural style being the most countercultural.
I think the best is to break out of that whole fashion cycle thing and just wear what you want without regard to what other people are wearing, whether they dress like you or don't.
>dress in straight colours and smooth sillhouettes mostly now
>look similar but a bit different to people around me
that's whats so interesting though, there's so many factors that go into what you like, and you cant ever truly escape being a consumer. you can try and distance yourself from trends and advertising but its almost like there are always people who dictate what you like. their are ads catered to trendy people and ads catered to those who dgaf and ads catered to people like you who consciously choose not to subscribe to trendy or anti trendy.
it's late and i think i make no sense, been reading too much k-hole
awwwhhhhh fuck yeah nigga
we had some good /pol/ threads back in the day before it became strictly /stormfront/

>invade alberta and make them join us so we have their oil
>improve relations with chinese hackers
>shut down entire US infrastructure
>win the civil war without any violence
>cascadia exists, rest of US and canada falls into civil war.
now it's all just
>lel, stupid black people
You make enough sense. What I got from you is that there's always something in the way you dress that comes from some trend. Most pieces of clothing have been trends at some point so you make sense. It's really in the way you put it together tbh. I tend to be different by wearing things in a colour that isn't usually commonly seen on that item of clothing.
Yeah, I don't like most of the "lets kill all non-whites" ideology. I mean that whole don't let the banks control the world and don't let western imperialism divide and conquer other countries is nice, but the white supremacism and other similar ideologies are pretty bad.
