    heh whats kind of funny is that indie clubs are starting to go really heavy on mainstream rap. i'd say like a third of all the clubs i frequent (super divey places, no cover, cheap drinks) have been playing tons of mainstream rap. To be honest everything is a welcome change from the overdose of the Smiths and Joy Division that I've been hearing so much of.

    well these are the days of post irony. in the past, all the cool kids stole from black culture and pretended to come up with it. Nowadays we all just steal from the culture our predecessors stole and sold back to black culture...its like a double negative i think.

    can somebody say what an american jackass really is. And whats wrong with them.

    it's a club, you are suppose to be flashy. Nothing wrong with that.


    How would wearing the same untucked stripped shirt, A&F jeans and clunky shoes than everyone else accomplish that?

    Put simply it’s an attitude embodied by a uniform. Jockish, fratboy, douchbaggery rolled up in a generic stripy untucked shirts, cheesy jeans, and square toed shoes (shinny, poorly made square toed shoes). For added flavor add a backwards baseball hat, flip flops, and/ or spiky hair. You could also get your eyebrows plucked so you look like someone around you just pooted.

    a&f, badly distressed bootcuts with sandals, hemp or shell necklaces, bad gelled hair, that whole frat boy jockish mentality, basically a good portion of the males that populate clubs, with no sense of individuality or taste, american jackass.

    For some reason I thought the term was meant to describe people that emulated Johnny Knoxville's style. ie aviators, trucker hat, graphic tee, jeans, cowboy boots & wristband.

    took it too literally huh? [​IMG]

    NY club scene is very different from most places though. So you see EVERY and ANYTHING here. Depends where you go.

    Cultpop and blackplatano, back down guys. blackplatano, cultpop did not call you an Amjack (who the hell came up with that abbreviation anyway?), so no need to tell him off. And cultpop, no need to retaliate and call bp a punk or a jackass.

    Whatever. In any case, any further shitsligging here or in any other thread is going to get someone timed out.

    Oh, and about dressing up for clubs: I generally wear what I wear anyway, and I generally hate clubs with dress codes (why should I let some 350 lb dude in a bad suit judge my style anyway?) but occasionally I do the reservoir dogs thing (no sunglasses though), or on my odd occasions in Vegas, I do Vegas - black suits, dark silk shirts, sunglasses, the whole deal. Think caricature of the movie Asian gangster.
