Lamestreamers on Facebook claim the Arcade Fire got them 'high'
As yall probs already know, Lamestreamers are everywhere, learning more about alternative culture, assimilating 2 vibe 2 indie bands just to enhance their personal brands 2 be kewl. One place lamestreamers like to hang out is the Facebook--a popular online dating service that gained popularity after the popular movie 'The Social Network'.
Anyways, just saw these 2 lamestreamers 'invade' my feed, singing some Arcade Fire lyrics.
First, some lamestreamer tries to be 'deep' by saying she is "in The_Suburbs" [via status message], letting ppl know that she identifies hard with the Arcade Fire brand. Wonder if most people saw this update and were like, 'ya--we all live in the suburbs--we're all lamestreamers.'
Then some lamestreamer is all like 'la la la la. Suburbs, yall. That's where I live. They wrote an album abt my hometown.'
Then a new lamestreamer is like "Mountains beyond mountains is the best mp3 evr!"
Some effing mainstreamer comes along and asks if every1 is 'high', because indie lyrics make u sound rlly effed up.
The Lamestreamer from The_Suburbs is like, "Yes. We are high. High off the Arcade Fire's live performance. It was a moving, beautiful experience that I cannot convey inside of facebook. U simply have to see them if u want to understand."
Next, the mainstreamer is like "huh? What? An arcade is on fire? What is that? s000 confused yall."
Then the lamestreamer provides her with a youtube link, exposing her to the new, kewl buzzband the Arcade Fire.
Feel kinda sad witnessing this. Like we just watched the process of an indie band going mainstream on a micro level or something. Just got super sad on the inside.
Is facebook ruining the authenticity of indie bands?
Has the Arcade Fire 'gone down the shitter'?
do lamestreamers 'ruin everything'?
Should Mark Zuckerberg kick off users in who are Lamestreamers?
The Arcade Fire is a 2k0s indie band that went mainstream because their songs sound like meaningful anthems. They pretend to be Canadian but Win Butler (lead singer) is actually from Houston, TX.
