Hipster BingoAm I Emo

I present to you two lame videos by confused "artists" - both using lame stereotypes. The first song is supposed to be about "emo bitches", and the second one was.... performed by some....

Pitch White - Emo Bitches

Armor For Sleep - Williamsburg

Wow. I don't even live in Williamsburg, I live in Sunset Park...but WTF is Armor For Sleep is trying to imply? They're being whiny just by telling people "we will all die" in the Burg.

Why are they complaining? Are they doing this to stir up controversies and blog rants by hipsters?

I say this...fucking idiots. Just let them rot. It's not in our best interest to make them feel like they achieved something by pissing off Williamsburg regulars.

P.S. - I'm looking forward to the "hipster" response to this.

Wait, WTF does EMO BITCHES supposed to do?

It attacks indie as well, and I don't get that at all. Why associate Fall Out Boy with Radiohead or Sigur Ros?

Umm... Armor for Sleep... you're from Jersey. Shouldn't you be raping someone in Seaside?

Posted by Steve | November 23, 2007 11:31 PM

Too hip to clean your nose out? What...?

Posted by Leia | November 23, 2007 11:32 PM

Armors for sleep...youre too cool for hipsters. Thats it, youve won.

Posted by kaitlyn | November 23, 2007 11:42 PM

Ew. I hope that asshole from pitch white or whatever never, ever gets laid. That's some disgusting, sexist, woman-hating shit. It's certainly not funny. He's probably scared of girls!

Posted by Bess | November 23, 2007 11:50 PM

It seems they have some sort of resentment not just for resentment, but for New York City and the subway...

Christ, Armor For Sleep, I'm sorry you live in Jersey...but don't take it out on Brooklynites and New Yorkers and the youth.

Just because we don't sing like whiny bastards and wear ridiculously tight pants and eyeliner, doesn't mean we should ALL DIE.

Don't you think that's a bit too much?

I mean, Jersey is a shithole, but I don't write songs about it...or complain or whine about who lives there.

Seaside? They're from Maplewood and Teaneck...Bennies! Feh.

And they're on Sire. What *is* Sire anymore, anyway?

The video's pretty funny, with all the little kids, but yeah what's with the lyrics? they sound incredibly bitter that they're not part of some "scene"; anyone who makes THAT big of a deal about wburg obviously feels lacking

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 12:20 AM

and it looks like like they just stepped off the L-train themselves. i bet they all have sound fix gift cards on their xmas lists.

um- i think he's just meaning to be funny because williamsburg is becoming such a stereotype/cliche. if you guys don't see how bad everyone is trying a little too hard to live and look a certain way out there then maybe you should take a look at the parody that that hood has become of itself. it really is funny.

if he wrote a song about being gay in chelsea- it'd be just as funny because each neighborhood in this city really has their own style- what is unfortunate is that people don't have their own style and they (in a weird way) let the hood dictate their style.

williamsburg: in trying hard to be hip- it's lost everything hip. it's bland.


Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 12:37 AM

Seriously though...the Pitch White song is a joke. Just listen and enjoy. If you take it seriously, you have some issues yourself.

As for Armor for Sleep, is there anything more cliche' than their singer? This song is for 14 year old girls in suburbia. Their listeners also think Britney Spears writes her own material. Hopefully the song will inspire these actions:

1. People take the lyrics seriously.
2. Williamsburg loses its hip qualities due to the fact that teeny-bopping shit bands must use its name to gain notoriety.
3. Rents begin to lower in Williamsburg.
4. This shit band with its overpaid $1 million advance causes some huge label to go under.
5. This shit music causes an economic downfall in teenagers which nudges this country just a bit further into a full recession.
6. Williamsburg rents plunge.
7. We all live happily ever-after.

After thinking about it, this song is the best thing to happen to the neighborhood in a long time. I just got kicked out of my "hip" $600 circa 2000 N4th apartment so that some asshole can pay $3000 a month. Oh the pain.

Posted by Downtown | November 24, 2007 12:51 AM

You were paying $600 in Williamsburg and you got kicked out? The only way you could've been paying that little is if you had a rent-stabilized apartment, in which case you couldn't have gotten kicked out. I call bullshit.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 1:15 AM

It wasn't rent stabalized, but on N4th in the Wythe/Kent area in 2000...you could absolutely get $600 dollar apts. Hell, you still can if you don't mind roommates.

Posted by Downtown | November 24, 2007 1:30 AM

the face of the L train has changed from hipster to Hipster [tm] (a subsidiary concept brought to you by MTV). i think the hipsters this armor for sleep are complaining about don't actually even live there anymore. they fucking live in bushwick or anywhere else where it is not retardedly overpriced. i don't know for sure, because i couldn't really bother listening to the lyrics carefully. i live in williamsburg and the number of dudes looking like these armor for sleep fuckfaces sauntering around increases steadily.

anyways, why do choads feel the need to lash out against groups of people they don't belong to? seriously. i think those assjackets are pretty worthless, but i see little merit in putting so much time and money (though apparently not talent) into writing/producing/releasing a song about it, and then making a video for it. are hipsters/douchebags the new jocks/nerds? i don't really consider myself to be in either camp... but i do live in williamsburg. it's so damn convenient living right on top of the L and the G, and those hana sammiches across the street are effing delicious.

"Too hip to clean your nose out? What...?"

i'm assuming it's a coke reference. you know, 'cause all those working class emo kids can only afford weed.

guys, let's not deflate this before it gets off the ground. this could be east coast/west coast for white people.

not to mention this shitty band needs some way to make money and get laid by fat 14 year olds.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 11:40 AM

when this shit ever end?
are you guys still uttering pointlessly meaningless words like "hip" "emo" and "hipster"?
how old are you people?

its 2007, time to get over this shit.
i was born and raised in Williamsburg and it's fucking pity, a HUGE fucking pity that it has become this big commercialized mess, this monster of overdrive that it is and has been for the past 5 years, give or take.

for the record, i could give a shit about the Armor for Sleep part of it all.
it's more the constant connotations that go along with the useless words that have become profoundly meaningless nowadays.
it's the kind of talk and state of mind that would cause me to say something deceptively unfair yet completely warranted like, "the word Williamsburg should not fall from your mouth unless you lived there prior to the year 1997."
the worst are kids who live nowhere near Brooklyn and talk like they've been here and have seen here.


stop this shit.
it's ancient. it's old. it's been done.
and most of you have no idea what you're talking about.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 12:07 PM

**
the above comment is for idiots who strive to continue the meaninglessness of the whole concept of everything this pathetic song is based on. i feel proud of the town i was born and raised in but ashamed of the reputation it has gained at the turn of century.
i'm well aware that not everyone that posted in this thread, or on BV in general, is that idiot who believes this media charged concept of what my hometown is, but it seems that it's brainwashed a shitload of people's minds already and they can't see it any other way.
Armor for Sleep are from Jersey and though i don't know for sure, i'll presume that no one is that band knew of Williamsburg before it became this mecca of "hipsters" whatever the FUCK that means. (that capitalized "fuck" is meant to be yelled in the highest goddamn decibel btw, in the purest frustration)

anyway, that shit just sucks what Williamsburg has become.
anyone remember the empty warehouses along Bedford before Fabiannes and the "Mini Mall" moved in.
anyone remember the Commodore?
anyone remember Woolworth on Marcy?

fuck this song and fuck anyone who perpetuates this mindlessness.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2007 12:34 PM

the first song is pretty funny, i doubt its supposed to be taken so seriously...

with regards to the 'too hip to clean your nose' line, armor for sleep used to (perhaps still do) snort lines with the fags from good charlotte.(i know this crap because, sadly, i partly grew up in jersey, then moved to philly midway through highschool, still have some friends who are friends with armor for sleep).
As much as armor sucks, look at how far the burg has sunken! now 'hipsters' are being attacked and ridiculed from a specimen even more commercialized than themselves: emo-popsters! now that really says something...

i wish i lived in williamsburg.

i do most of my drinking there. see a lot of shows on S. 2nd.

sure would be nice not to stumble to the G train... or take a 20 min bike ride of near death i don't remember the next morning.

just wish i had more cash to afford it.

would be nice to wake up on sunday morning in the summer and walk to the pool.

would be pretty sweet to live off all those awesome bedford coffee shops. or perhaps be close to food swings.

maybe be on the L so i could look at cute fresh faced kids on the way to work instead of tired worker bees on the A/C.

yeah, williamsburg. that place sucks. i certainly didn't move here from the midwest so i could be next to a hip young person's carnival of coffee/beer drinking and concert gallery going.

stop hating bitches. you know you love it.

i love williamsburg. armor for sleep are exactly the kind of douchebags that woulod move to williamsburg to be cool and only end up degrading the neighborhood even farther. im all for sharing the beauty that is NYC with other people but when most of the people in a neighborhood arent originally from NYC, how much of a NYC neighborhood can it really be?

i actually met a girl at a party who instead of telling me how long shes been living in brooklyn replied with "it feels like years." when i asked for a straight answer she told she moved to bushwick 2 months ago.

i'm about to go to williamsburg and buy some cheese. i will also sit in a coffee shop and read. hopefully i will encounter some new music, art, or design that was conveniently concentrated there for my consideration.

it seems like me and hipsters share a lot of the same tastes. except i don't think i'm mean and cynical and i don't do coke. hrm.

I like that "hipsters" now consider themselves oppressed. Makes them so much more obnoxious. That second song is pretty generic, but at least its saying something.

the joke is the people who live in Williamsburg mostly came here from Ohio or Il. or Michigan or whatever. Go to a show and ask around, . There should be a poll how many people that are in "NY bands" or people that go to shows are actually from NYC. Very few....

Good things you guys came though, if it wasnt for you coming Williamsburg would have still been a haven from crackheads and gang bangers.

i was originally born in brooklyn. when i turned 14 my parents moved to long island. when i go to shows and people asked me where i am from, i tell them long island. what is the big deal? i seen more shit on this streets of brooklyn than any of these people i see at shows. i gotten my ass kicked and save by many of brooklyn's neighbors. i can't stand brooklyn too much anymore only because i feel that it has changed. and since more and more people are moving into brooklyn, rent has been staggering. if someone moves in and is paying 2000 a month for an apt that should be 900 a month, that means that almost 1/2 the people in that building would have an increase in rent. out with the old and in with the new. the otherday i was working in far rockaway, and forgive me for saying this...but i saw a few hipsters...is far rockaway the new williamsburg, or portland or whatever other city? instead of moving into these areas, why not try volunteering through the community and make it better, instead of driving the people out of there apartments. don't get me wrong i still have brooklyn in my heart, but it's changing and it's going to be overpopulated with many many many rich snobs so enjoy it while it last, and i love to chill out in billyburgh ever once and while too, but i don't dress accordingly. (yes, long island has it rich people too, why i hate longisland with a passion)

The second video is just dumb. Ooo, you made fun of hipsters, that makes you original. Dude probably just got turned down by too many hot girls and had to lash out. Now THAT'S emo.

PS. Don't we already have a band called Fall Out Boy?

I laughed my ass off at Pitch White. (And I'm a chick)

Armor for Sleep sucked ass. The song was bad. Really bad. I see what they were trying to do-- I'm not of fan of cokehead clones with no personal sense of style-- but the hipster backlash is soooooooooo old at this point. Its like why don't you protest Vietnam (the war, not the band) while you're at it.

Or- just hang out with people who inspire you and don't worry about everyone else.


Posted by BAMiAM | November 28, 2007 4:45 PM

To all the people who live in Williamsburg and are bitching about it... MOVE. Its that simple really. It's only natural that cities change, whether its population wise, gentrification, etc.. you have to be able to adapt. You don't own Williamsburg, you never have, and you never will. You too are just another resident. Do you think it matters if you grew up there versus someone who moved there from Ohio or Minnesota or whatever? Why would that matter? Because your parents happened to fuck in a certain city, you think that you somehow own part of it?

Things change, people change, places change. The only constants seems to be the endless amounts of bitching that goes on about "hipsters fucking up my town " and the grandiose and almost retarded notion that simply because you fell out of your moms vagina in a Brooklyn hospital, that your opinion makes even the slightest difference.

STOP HOMETOWN PRIDE !!

No one cares where you were born, where you live now, or where you will die. Is any of it relevant? Who cares if you're "from" Brooklyn or if you "stay" in Brooklyn and who gives a fuck how you say it.

Sure there are elitists and douchebags amongst the so called hipster community, but there are elitists and douchebags amongst all communities if you want to put shit under the scope.

So again, why don't you fools try embracing this thing called "The Positive Vibe" and quit whining about hipsters, bands, cities, neighborhoods, and other shit that serves little purpose. Here's an even crazier idea, get of your computer today and go out and try to be ALIVE. Being part of the world is shitloads more rad than hanging out on the internet all day.

ha ha ha ha, yes. Jeff nailed the mad-lib on the head:

"
Well, I'm from (neighborhood) and you're all idiots.

All the (type of people) moved to (other neighborhood) and now it sucks.

I miss (arbitrary time in recent NY history) because that's when shit was real.

omg, you are all idiots.
first of, the first video was so incredibly stupid, i'll give you that, but Armor For Sleep is not whining about the fact that we all die, nor are they making fun of Williamsburg regulars.

The point of the song is the fact that people now adays in our screwed up society are trying to be 'part of the crowd'.
They don't want to stand out and be there selfs so they conform.
AFS is simply saying, not matter what you make yourself out to be, you will always be the person underneath the clothes and underneath being so full of yourself.
You will end up right back where you started and die from where you came from.

and please stop this emo shit, 'cause seriously man, emo is nothing. It's just some stupid thing from the 70s that people these days turned into something negative about bands.

Vicky, you're a dumb slut. Shut the fuck up. They are obviously making a comment on Williamsburg. Stop being so dense.

Seriously why does everyone have to be so negative?
At first I was just going to call everyone who hated on Armor For Sleep loser and tell you to shut up…..but I’m gonna be nice.
In my point of view the Williamsburg video was just making a generalization. If they were to say “you will all die in Miami” instead of Williamsburg would that make you happy. Probably not. I don’t think that they were trying to offend anyone just making music and doing what they love. And yo know what I think they were a little stereotypical but come everyone is guilty of stereotyping and they said what everyone was thinking. If you never thought this than your kidding your self. This is just my opinion take it for what ever you like I don’t care. Besides isn’t that what makes America great freedom of speech and self expression. That’s why you all get to comment.

The Pitch White video is hilarious. It is supposed to be funny. Check his myspace, he's a COMEDIAN.

If you're hung up on the title of the song, you don't get it. The song isn't about the bands he name checks. It's about demeaning nerdy, needy women. Which is hilarious. Because it's a joke.

Most of you read like you are too young to know this, but the meaning of "emo" has changed over the past decade. The word, probably created by Spin Magazine or some other lame rag, was once used to classify bands such as Weezer, Joan of Arc, Drive By Jehu, Modest Mouse, and Rainer Maria-- bands that were basically indie rock (and abhorred the word "emo"), but were sensitive or nerdy indie rock-- now the term is used for whiny, cut-myself bands that actually like being classified as "emo". Bands like Hawthorn Heights and AFI.

My guess is many of the people responding to this set of videos are "emo" or "hipster" themselves, otherwise they would not be so mad. Don't get so defensive, man!
