    Don't know how long this is going to stay up, but someone uploaded the new Margiela documentary onto YouTube. No subtitles, but many of the people interviewed speak English

    Everyone seems to be mistaking the 80s for the 90s.

    @dieworkwear if you had said 90’s Lisa Bonet or Marisa Tomei, then maybe.

    I was always more partial to the whole Doogie Howser aesthetic.

    Would be perfectly happy with 2018 Marisa Tomei, but YMMV

    Does underground culture exist anymore? Specifically youth culture in the US as it pertains to music, fashion, or dance?

    I get the impression no, but I'm also an old fart and may just be out of touch.

    i think england has often been better at this than the US. a lot of grime has still not been co-opted by the mainstream, it's just a bit too 'raw' (read: working class, non-white)

    It’s kinda sad if “underground” youth culture just entails heavy drinking and smoking :/

    If I were to know about it, then it’s not underground I’m sure so won’t have an answer for you, but how are we defining youth in his case? What’s the age bracket?

    And I guess apropos of my first point, philosopical question: what does underground really mean? Doesn’t have to be secret i assume, but at what level of broader cultural and media awarness does a culture stop being underground? When has it been coopted?

    I listen to Sirius XMU for new music, and their DJs are pretty amazing. Jenny Eliscu has a broad but mostly 80’s 90’s underground knowledge and used to write for Rolling Stone. Joziah was into late 90s/early aughts post/dance punk and nu disco and that influences his present selections, and Carles from the old HRO is hilarious and has great taste.

    The point of all this is, I have no idea anymore what’s underground or not since I haven’t listened to mainstream radio for over 10 years (never heard a Taylor Swift song). Every now and then I’ll go to a concert from one of the bands I hear on the station. Still I’m amazed at how many kids are at the show. Haerts was one in particular where it almost made me feel like, did one of her cuts get chosen as the theme song to a cartoon?

    A Kind Of Guise is better at being Our Legacy than Our Legacy is at being Our Legacy these days.
