In other news.. I have been swampped! with huge amounts of projects and assignments.. I just handed it in my Kanye West/Kid Cudi & Indie music essay.. (oh yes, I love my degree). Can you believe it, I handed it in HOURS! before it was actually due..
I know.. I am also slightly impressed with myself.

after watching hours of The Rachel Zoe Project.. I have finally seen a shot of her hairstylist doing her hair. and now know how to create the perfect frame for curly hair! YAY
... I am pretty excited abt this development.
** for those who are interested:
I wrote an essay about how it is increasingly becoming a trend for Hip Hop artists to collaborate with Indie musicians - everyone should have heard abt the Kanye and Bon Iver collab by now (I KNOW! I CANT WAIT EITHER!!!) Also you got Kid Cudi working with Vampire Weekend and Best Coast.
- resistance against the stereotypes of hip hop culture and social structure.
- incorporation of indie commodities
But then again..us Aussies shouldn't really be surprised at this.
We had Bliss N Eso collaborating with Angus and Julia Stone wayyyyy before this. And can I just say.. Lupe Fiasco is definitely in my opinion the one who started the movement wayyyyy back in '07.
MARK MY WORDS
There is definitely a genre/subculture forming around the combination of hip hop & indie.
And Australia's is the hip hop/indie marketers dream!
We love our hip hop AND our indie like nobodies business.
Some might call this "bricolage" > hipster actually.
Which brings me to this: http://www.latfh.com/ (check it.. its hilarious)
Do you think you belong to a clique/subculture? If so what is it?
