Typically, there's silence which isn't so bad as my expectations are generally very low. I chalk it up to the way a 9-5'er stuck in his Civic complains that there is too much traffic during his commute because people don't walk or take the bus anywhere anymore; it's more of a blanket complaint than an actual proposition towards change.
Typically, I agitate for change by wearing very dull monochrome clothing.
SF isn't unpleasantly homogeneous, really. Too much love for boat shoes, which I really can't stand, but a pleasant focus on real-person clothing. Also populated with people that aren't entirely annoying, which is not insignificant.
I think the degree of sameness comes from a revolving populating that comes in poorly dressed, and after a while, having followed basic forum advice and trends, looks in the mirror and says: "hey, wow, I look pretty good!" And on the one hand, sure, that's a little repetitive. But the standard forum basics actually do look pretty good on most people, and if they're coming through after a bout of Affliction/7FAM/KC, that's a pretty big win.
It's always nice to see some variety, but it's a little mean to disdain the advances of the formerly ill-dressed, you know?
 Maybe it's just me, but it gives me visions of like Reginald and Muffy summering somewhere, and it's just totally insufferable.
