No, I think "The O.C."'s boogeyman role has more to do with indie fans' perception of themselves than their worry for the eternal cred souls of the bands getting national exposure. That pang you're feeling when you hear the Walkmen on the show is the realization that indie lifestyle, in all of its anti-mainstream fervor, is just as commidifiable an identity as any high school hallway archetype, fit not only for the personality of an ensemble cast member but a whole slew of show-related merchandise...do they have "O.C." hoodies yet?
Yea, I wish I had Rob Mitchum's writing ability - that is *exactly* what I mean.

So if this throwaway compilation has an underlying message, it's this: You're not special. That complex, detached, artfully depressed persona you've cultivated isn't unique; in fact, it's so easily simulated, the network that also brings you "Life on a Stick" can replicate it. But don't let it bring you down, it's only castles burning. Accelerate the inevitable: Embrace your lack of the unique, stop liking bands for their scarcity, enjoy the full spectrum of music, not just the portions with credibility directed prefixes. And don't forget to thank "The O.C." for saving you some time along the way.
My sentiments exactly, and not just about music. Sure, I wear Yoko Devereaux and Corpus (although both are now officially mainstream, having been featured in Cargo), and Puma Mihara sneakers and Engineered Garment belts (the only one of these brands that still hasn't been featured in Details or Arena, etc... and so really has "indie" cred). But I also wear Seven jeans, because they fit me pretty well. And I don't care if soccer moms across the country are wearing the same brand. Actually, I like soccer moms.

...well at the end of the day, it depends on how their asses look in the jeans...The thought of a fit soccer mom in tight jeans is somewhat sexy.

The thought of ANY fit mom in tight jeans is sexy
