Carles throws down a SICK DJ set at #SXSW's #VIPfest

carles hipster runoff
This post was written by our #SXSW correspondent, 22 year old Frank Marshten, a college intern from the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri.

We battled for tacos, brisket, and friends at #SXSW, but no showcase was more coveted than #VIPfest, thrown by Carles of HIPSTER RUNOFF. The line to this place was at least 3 blocks long, and even if you were VIP status, they were turning people away to a spillover venue to watch a livestream because it was just at capacity. Hell, I Got in and it felt like it was overcapacity. People passed out along the walls after ingesting a cocktail of drugs, vibes, and VIP. FULL DISCLOSURE: I had a few cold ones.

Carles stepped up to the DJ booth, and every1 was going APESHIT. Carles grabbed the microphone, and said, "Tonight, we're all fucking VIP!" Every one began to chant, "V-I-P! V-I-P!" Then Carles dropped the SICKEST DJ set I have heard since young Skrillex was coming up in the scene. The VIP area was going crazy, and it was the relevant hot spot for SO many ALT CELEBS and MAINSTREAM celebs.

It was a real #gamechanger of a night, and every one was chanting "GAME-FUCKING-OVER" after the set. Many people can't get along, but one thing is for sure--we can all agree that Carles KILLED IT, SLEIGHED, and NAILED IT while CRUSHING THE EFF OUT OF IT.

Frank Marshten is a Journalism Student, Missouri Class of 2012. He loves #hashtags, music journalism, fried foods, and small dogs.

Did Carles effing KILL IT at #SXSW?

Bon Iver's Justin Vernon apologizes 2 Carles. Has he won the first battle against the Corrupt Indie Machine?


We fight against the Corrupt Indie Machine 4 u.

This week, a battle was launched against Carles by Justin Vernon. He stood against Independent Indie Media. He stood against The Indie Truth. He stood against indie free speech and the Progressive Alt Blogosphere.

Many speculated that he was a part of the Corrupt Indie Machine.

Perhaps he has seen the light, taking to #Twitter to issue a formal apology 2 Carles. He said, "sorry CRLS."

In the fight against the Corrupt Indie Machine, maybe we should all be sorry. Sorry 4 letting our indie society come 2 this.

Should Carles have apologized 2 Bron Iver?
Is Carles just 'milking this meme 4 hits'?
Is Carles 'a complete effing ass hole' who is 'self-obsessed' and only cares abt promoting the brand of his slow loading blog?
Who are the winners and losers of the Bon Iver Vs Carles battle?
How can we win the war against the Corrupt Indie Machine?
Is Bon Iver 'actually a chill bro' or a harshly vibed bro, taking to Twitter 2 voice too many of his dark thoughts?
Which indie artists should be banned from Twitter by their publicists?
Do u <3 the new era of 'indie journalism' where blogs basically just over-analyze minuscule, unimportant tweets that are actually just the irrelevant, passive thoughts of artists who are bored?

Lance Armstrong supports Bon Iver against Carles & other anonymous cowards


The war of Twitter words between Carles and Bon Iver continues, but now, famous indie celebrity Justin Vernon has acquired the support of Tour De France winner Lance Armstrong. It seems as though Carles has truly been backed into a lonely corner of the internet against the fame and power of celebrities like Justin Vernon and Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong is an Austin resident and long-time fan of indie music, particularly in the cool dad genre. Armstrong is actually probably one of the coolest dads in the world, though--not just some dad with a leather interior-ed car listening to NRR-wave rock.

Lance Armstrong himself has been the victim of baseless claims of doping by many anonymous cowards, and can identify with Justin Vernon's crusade against hate in the blogosphere.

This is a dark moment for Carles, who is on record as a Lance Armstrong supporter and avid cycling fan, even contributing an Article during last year's Tour De France [link]. particularly against long time rivals Alberto Contador. Carles has followed Lance Armstrong's post-cancer cycling career and has drawn great inspiration from his time on US Postal Service, Discovery Channel, Astana, and Radio Shack. Not only is Carles a supporter of Lance Armstrong as an American cyclist, but also other Americans like George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer, and David Zabriskie. Carles is also a supporter of the LIVESTRONG foundation, as some of his closest friends and family members have fought against cancer.

Carles still remains an Armstrong and LIVESTRONG supporter and fan, despite Vernon showcasing the reach of his mainstream indie power and connections.

It seems as if the entire world is turning on HIPSTER RUNOFF. Will Carles continue to fight against the corrupt indie media, labels, and gladhanding alternative celebrities?

This is truly a turning point for the entire indiesphere, where we all must ask ourselves HOW IS THE BUZZ REALLY MADE? Are the words we read, mp3s we stream, and music videos that we embed safe for consumption, or have they been artificially tainted by corrupt buzz?

Is Carles 'over'?
Is this the beginning of the end?
Is Carles a coward, hiding behind 'anonymity'?
Is the indie media 'turning' / abandoning HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Is this a 'non-story' / 'just an example of how blogs are desperate to farm any content that involves entities that drive page views'?
Or has the indie media proven that they are on #TeamBonIver by not 'covering' this important moment in Indie Free Speech?

Why can't we all just farm and produce organic, authentic buzz together?
Because it is CHEAPER for the CORRUPT indie media to farm it at low-cost prices with CHEAP LABOR writers and bloggers.

Dirty Projectors support Bon Iver, says HIPSTER RUNOFF is the scum of the indiesphere


The Dirty Projectors are a critically respected buzzband, whose buzz trajectory underwent a massive metamorphosis in 2k9 after adjusting their band lineup. However, after the recent Twitter beef that Bon Iver's lead singer started with the popular weblog HIPSTER RUNOFF, many other relevant buzz humans and buzzbands are rushing to support the #cyberbullying and #slutshaming of Carles. The Dirty Projectors backup singer Amber Coffman is the next to speak out against Carles and his controversial editorial voice. She supports Bon Iver, claiming that HIPSTER RUNOFF is a site that exists to "tries to cheapen + ruin everyone's hard work, everything that is positive/fun. so dark."

It seems like there is a TRUE indie war brewing between buzzbands rebelling against the blogs that buzz them. Earlier today, Carles went on a massive tweet spree, throwing out indie conspiracies about how buzz is truly created due to secret pacts and gladhanding between major music websites, indie labels, and relevant buzz celebrities. There is truly a Blogosphere Civil War happening right before our eyes. Whose side are you on?

Amber went on to tweet:

"it's not like @hipsterrunoff doesn't know how to be funny. they could do it without the hatred, but i guess h8tred gets u more "buzz" huh?"

In the new blogosphere world, 'talking mad shit' about a buzzband will get you more hits, buzz, comments, unique visitors, and social media links than the majority of crappy MP3s and videos by fringe buzzbands that no one cares about.

In the past, Carles has 'riffed' and/or 'joked' on the Dirty Projectors, claiming that lead singer Dave Longstreth 'operated his band' as if it was a cult of brainwashed wives, paying them not in money, but in the arbitrary currency of alt buzz. Carles has often 'joked' that the Dirty Projectors were unbuzzworthy before he acquired 3 PREMIUM hot altbaguettes, then, the male, misogynistic blogosphere 'took a liking to them' not just because of their vocal harmonies, but because of the sweet, sweet harmonies of their premium alt good looks when u go 2 see them live. They could just yodel and howl in discordance over random guitar riffs, and it would be sweet, sweet music to our eyes.

None of the altbaguettes could be reached for confirmation on their salary structure, song-writing royalties, or equity in the band. Much of what Carles says is not based on fact, some claiming that he is a 'parody' writer. But maybe anonymous parody goes too far, cyberbullying under the cloak of secrecy without any accountability. Twitter is abuzz with conspiracy theories, claiming that the only reason the Dirty Projectors issued public comment is to construct a narrative for their upcoming 2k12 album cycle.

Buzzbands are truly turning on Carles and HIPSTER RUNOFF. After his critically acclaimed coverage of #LDRGate, it seems like buzzbands want the blogosphere to 'go back to the way it used to be' in the beginning. Now, blogs are fighting for hits, doing anything they can to turn indie musicians into CELEBRITIES, processed like a meat market. Perhaps now we are only just learning how the sausage is actually made in this corrupt indie industry.

Is the buzzluminati trying to 'silence' Carles?
Are buzzbands turning on HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Do u still <3 Amber even though she is harshing the HRO vibes?
Does not even Dave Longstreth care abt what Amber Coffman has 2 say [via domineering buzzband leaders]?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF 'effing toast'?
Will every1 do ANYTHING 4 buzz?
IS everything 'going to shit'?
Who can we trust?
What is happening?
Are u on #TeamCarles or #TeamDP or #TeamBonIver?

Why Can't We All Just Ride Chillwaves 2gether [via getting along]

Bon Iver's PISSED OFF frontman Justin Vernon LASHES OUT at HIPSTER RUNOFF over critical coverage


Bon Iver is a tenured indie buzzband who brought the soothing sounds of a lonely man in the pure rural American vibes to the mainstream, recently earning a Grammy nomination for his contribution to the arts and mindie scene. He is at the mainstream indie mountain top, mad record sales, critical buzz, truly on top of the world. You have to remember that Bon Iver was buzz incubated in a time when there was 'no internet h8', and instead of creating backlash to generate buzz, you just had to release decent MP3s and promote your local scene. The entire indie game is changing so quickly that sometimes it is hard to keep up with the modern backlash-wave-indie-celebrity-driven-zeitgeist.

Recently, in the spirit of a true alt, Justin Vernon is on record as saying 'Eff the Grammies, man!'

It seems as though today, he is saying 'Eff you' to another very important cultural institution: The popular weblog HIPSTER RUNOFF and the blogger/mastermind behind it all named 'Carles.' After a recap post about the band's performance on SNL entitled 'Bon Iver sounds like dying indie rock on SNL, has mysterious HUGE black teenager in backing band, Vernon took to his passionate Twitter account to #slutshame Carles. Previously, Carles blogged about his fitness regimen, highlighting his dedication to health and fitness [link]. We are not sure what Justin Vernon (commonly referred to as Bon Ivbro) has taken issue with.

However, he has gone on record, calling HIPSTER RUNOFF basically 'the scum of the Earth.' Right now, the entire indie blogosphere has been muddied by TABLOID JOURNALISM, especially after the rise of Lana Del Rey. Even the most established indie sites and blogs are lost, searching for an authentic editorial voice in the face of booming SEO results and ANGRY readers. While some blogs will continue to use their weak editorial voice to write 'lukewarm praise' of any embeddable content made by a widely known indie celeb, Carles MUST be celebrated for his position as the Last Authentic Content Farmer Standing. Recently, the New York Times and the New Yorker celebrated The Passion of the Carles.

Others claim that Carles is dedicated to eternally belittling the artistic intentions of every one, attempting to cheapen real people who are 'trying to do something that helps the world.' They fear that he has evolved into the last indie gatekeeper, creating the (usually artificial) narrative that could either MAKE or BREAK a buzzband OR buzz human's entire career. The truth is, Carles might be the dead end of overvalued cultural commentators who have no authority to pass any judgment on anything, but still write words that sound important and sometimes impact 'reality.'

The truth is, Carles has given so much to the indie scene, and for buzzbands to GANG UP on him 2 cyberbully could lead to a backlash against said bands. If we take a step back from the situation, we are all just staring at the impending indie apocalypse straight in the face. Sometimes it is important to ask yourself: Are you a part of the problem, or are you a part of the solution? After everything that Carles has done for the indie scene on a day-to-day basis, some say that Vernon has crossed the line and needs to do a wider examination of the state of Buzz. On the other hand, many are calling for the head of Carles. It is only a matter of time before Indie's Last Battle results in the death of all of us.

Justin Vernon could not be reached for comment. He is rumored to be watching the film 'Gettysburg' on a sweet home entertainment system.

R u on #TeamBonIver or #TeamCarles?
Was it mean of Bon Iver to LASH OUT at Carles like this?
Has Carles 'crossed the line'?
Is Bon Iver 'just another buzz human who hates Carles'? [via growing list]
Will the NPR cool dads who vibe to Bon Iver 'boycott' reading HRO, or are they already on lame content farms anyways?
Is Bon Iver 'in pain'?
Is this just a 'generational disconnect issue'?
Is this the beginning of the end of HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Will Bon Iver lead a campaign 2 put HRO out of biz?
Does Bon Iver have 'rose colored glasses on' when he visits the blogosphere, expecting every blogpost to have the same loving tone as a local news puff piece?

Who is 'right' and who is 'wrong'?
Does Carles TOTALLY FUCKING SUCK?
In a way, do we all totally effing suck bc we are buzz humans trapped on the internet reading abt buzz humans?
Why can't we all just ride chillwaves 2gthr?

The New Yorker celebrates Carles & HIPSTER RUNOFF as only bright spot of LDR meme lifecycle

lana del rey magazine covery
The Lana Del Report has been HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL, representing a new editorial direction for HIPSTER RUNOFF. However, the reviews are in. Despite the rampant cries of 'SLUT SHAMER!', it seems as though Carles is getting his due as the 'last real nigga' in the blogging game. While many other indie, rock, and pop critics and blogspot content farms have attempted to cover LDR with a hard-hitting, unique point of view, they have all failed, perhaps signaling the death of music criticism as whole, mainly bc no1 cares.

Carles has truly stomped all over traditional standards of music criticism, making the old voices of yesteryear sound naggier and more out of touch with reality than ever. Now, some local New York Zine called 'The New Yorker' has praised Carles for being a breath of fresh air in the great content purge of 2k12.

The truth is, you can't talk about Lana Del Rey without talking about Carles and his popular weblog HIPSTER RUNOFF. Carles and Lana have a synergistic relationship, and both of them could very well go down in flames 2gether. But today... They celebrate.

The allegedly homemade clip for her single “Video Games,” from the new album, has racked up more than twenty-one million views on YouTube since it was posted, last August; the song has gone into the Top Ten in the U.K. and several other countries; and the popular blog Hipster Runoff has rebranded itself the Lana Del Report, with the pseudonymous author Carles writing dozens of obsessive ruminations about her.

Does n e 1 know if 'pseudonymous' means that Carles is 'killing it', 'nailing it', and 'game-over-ing' it on the reg?

Carles has truly been the only bright spot in the Lana Del Rey lifecycle.

Much of the rest of the Internet is equally interested in Del Rey, although few commenters have been as amusing as Carles.

Say what you will about 'Born to Die', but it is clear that the real story here is the Carlesian Renaissance that We Are All Witnesses. #Carles_Witness

Say what u will about LDR's album, but at the end of the day, she's one of the greatest human memes in the history of the indiesphere, and they cannot take that away from her. And you can't take away what Carles has done. When the blogosphere finally burns down in the great blog fire of 2k13, Carles's words will live on forever in the hearts and minds of the most relevant humans on Earth.

Is Carles 'killing it'?
Is Carles 'nailing it'?
Is Carles 'beating a dead horse meme'?
Is Carles 'effing reaming'?
Is Carles 'pegging it'?
Is Carles 'slaughtering it'?
Is Carles 'juicing it'?
Has Carles 'gone too far'?
Has Carles 'effing lost it'?
Is Carles the only bright spot of the LDR meme lifecycle?

LA Times claims Carles in midst of MASSIVE BREAKDOWN, more outlets celebrate His brilliance


Last week, Carles turned his popular internet weblog into the Lana Del Report, getting 'mad hits' from that 'sweet, sweet Lana Del Rey traffic. It seems like blogs and news outlets are going CRAZIE4CARLES and his unique web brand, as he is finally sharing his #Brilliant_Mind with 'the lamestream masses' once again. However, he came under fire from the Los Angeles Times, and they said that he was having a 'Psychic Meltdown.' I'm not sure if that is related to the popular Neon Indian 2k11 album 'Psychic Chasms' or something.

Via the LA Times auxiliary content farm:

After Lana Del Rey's widely panned SNL performance, the savagely funny satire site Hipster Runoff has been staring into an existential abyss.

The popular news and review site, known for the doofusy textspeak of its pseudonymous founder Carles and a transparent obsession with its own "relevance," has been a kind of Pitchfork-era update of Beavis and Butt-Head since its inception in 2007. The site's blissfully blinkered worldview is a savvy illustration of today's twentysomething id.

But the subject of Lana Del Rey has apparently sent Carles into a kind of ultra-meta tailspin.

Has Carles 'completely lost it'?

But in a long, tortured essay, Carles comes to a bleak conclusion that essentially all culture and cultural criticism is a cog in an Internet hype machine whose sole purpose is to self-perpetuate. Money can be made, but it's not the point -- all of art and all of Internet culture is essentially an empty act of "content farming" and self-fabrication (or, as Carles would call it, "personal-brand-building").

Hipster Runoff has renamed itself the "Lana Del Report" and seems to express a genuine sympathy with Del Rey as a product of an esoteric media-industrial complex far bigger than herself. Lately, Carles has been tweeting some uncomfortably earnest cries for help.

In the words of Carles.... "Help."

Elsewhere, the NY Post claimed that HIPSTER RUNOFF was one of the realest niggas in the LDR-authentic-criticism movement, proving that HIPSTER RUNOFF is THE premiere indie gossip rag on the internet. [link]

“Meet Lizzy Grant. She had blond hair, didn’t look very ‘alt sexy.’ Sorta like a girl from my high school who was a part-time hostess at Chili’s,” wrote “Carles,” the blogger behind Hipster Runoff, which has dedicated its Lana Del Report to “LDR News, Memes, Buzz, Opinions and Hate Coverage.”

The Guardian disagrees, claiming that Carles and his popular weblog HIPSTER RUNOFF has in fact turned LDR meme bashing into 'an art form.' [link]

Suddenly, many of the fans that had boosted Del Rey turned on her in spectacular fashion. Music blogs poured vitriol on her talents. Some influential music websites, such as Hipster Runoff, have turned insulting Del Rey into an art form.

In addition, some internet comedy blog about failed niche web comics also claimed that HIPSTER RUNOFF was 'eating it's own tail.' [link]. Last week was not just a 'Lana Del Roast', but more importantly, a Celebration of Carles and the purest form of blogging.

If you visit Hipster Runoff right now, its name has been changed to the Lana Del Report, and the site spent a day or two covering nothing but her. Carles’ wrote an explanatory piece, which is sort of about Del Rey, but more about blogs, the role of Carles, and what his website has become. And it proves that while watching Hipster Runoff write about a manufactured “indie” celebrity may be entertaining, watching Hipster Runoff write about Hipster Runoff is full-on fascinating. It’s one of the deepest and funniest things ever posted on a site that’s a treasure trove of deep and funny. In some ways, it’s the site’s creator owning up to the fictional nature of Carles. In other ways, it just makes the author more unknowable. In every way, it’s hilarious and vital for anyone who wonders how the internet is affecting our discourse.

With so much blog press, it is clear that Carles is 'on his A-game', managing to KILL IT, NAIL IT, and REAM IT in 2k12. Unfortunately for Carles, there is only one way to go now that he is on top--down the shitter.

Has Carles 'tanked'?
Has Carles 'returned'?
Have the anonymous HRO interns finally 'got their shit 2gether'?
Is Carles having the biggest meltdown in the history of blogspots?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF better or worse than ever?
#Pray4Carles
Is Carles 'as swag as it gets'?
Will blogs survive in the post-Lana era?

How long can blogs milk Lana Del Meme think pieces?
Has Carles turned into the #1 meme controller in indie?
Has Carles 'sold the eff out' by blogging about lamestream topics like #LanaDelRey?
Do u have a dream that 1 day u will trend on twitter, even if ur name is misspelled?

Pitchfork PANS new WAVVES EP, mentions HIPSTER RUNOFF as biggest Best Coast+WAVVES hater in the review


Nathan Williams is WAVVES, who recently 'tried to go mainstream' by debuting his EP's new mp3 on mtv.com and attending the VMAs. Bad move by him, because it seems like now he has 'totally lost the respect' of the authentic criticismsphere. Pitchfork 'panned the eff' out of him, basically saying he was 'immature' and incapable of evolving, but that's his gimmick, so I guess we have to decide if he is still worth buzzing even though one of the required indie gimmicks for any buzzband's career is the guise of 'evolution.'

Is Pitchfork 'effing done' with WVVS?

Great backhanded slam:

Williams treats the inaugural release on his Ghost Ramp label like a 24-year old's first apartment: Maybe you'd only want to spend 15 minutes tops in this ramshackle mess, but hey, he's enjoying his freedom.

"this lil ass hole is never really gonna do anything for us, he has reached his ceiling."

King of the Beach was a quantum leap for Wavves, but not so much for Nathan Williams. In the context of the monochrome, fuck-all noise of Wavvves, it was easier to stomach an attitude that hovered somewhere between high, hungover, and hateful. What pissed off a lot of people was the way he could broaden his sonic palette and galvanize his songwriting without even the slightest attitude adjustment: The world would have to start taking him seriously, and it was abundantly clear he had no plans to return the favor.

This dude's time is over. He already peaked. Not gonna deliver anything original ever again. His gimmick is established. Boring. Look for his next album to be MAJORLY panned.

Still, with an LP supposedly on its way by the end of the year, you don't have to wonder quite yet if using the brat factor as something of a crutch means that he already reached his ceiling and King of the Beach is the record he was put on this earth to make....

They mentioned HIPSTER RUNOFF in the review. I guess that means I am officially the #1 WAVVES + BEST COAST news source in the world.

Unsurprisingly, the track that gets him out of the artistic cul-de-sac is by far the best thing here: Crazy for You and King of the Beach coyly flirted with addressing the real-life relationship of its creators, and Williams' collaboration with Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino on "Nodding Off" doesn't get much into detail either. Still, it threatens to make even the most jaded Hipster Runoff devotee actually root for them: think Best Coast with more power, Wavves with more pop, or just a more reckless, less cerebral New Pornographers.

Some days I worry that I am 0% relevant. When u r mentioned as a MAJOR FORCE in indie [via Pitchfork review namedrop], then u know u have annoyingly willed your way to be an essential part of the indie rock discussion.

I wonder if this blog haunts them at night/if they have ever had a dream (nightmare) that involved HRO.

Is WAVVES "over"?
Is his gimmick 'fresh' or 'stale'?
Can he go more mainstreamier?
Do u think Nathan WIlliams and Bethersny will publicly breakup for their next album cycle's buzz?
Did Pitchfork 'nail it'?
Will Best Coast and WAVVES both see MASSIVE DROPS in scoring on their upcoming LPs?

Donald Glover launches war of words with HIPSTER RUNOFF, calls Carles a coward


Donald Glover is an alt comedian who is attempting 2 'make it' as a rapper/hip hop artist by rapping over samples of pre-existing indie mp3s. Because most indie celebs are insecure abt their societal status bc most of them don't make THAT much money, receiving validation from some1 like Donald Glover makes them feel famous-er. The ALT REPORT has been tough on Donald Glover, questioning his intentions and his artistic merit. Carles panned him at both SXSW and Bonnaroo. In addition, HRO chided that perhaps Donald Glover's krappie tunes killed ppl at Bonnaroo.

Donald Glover seems 2 have fired back at this malicious indie blog by tweeting 'say it 2 my face, internet.' This is certainly a shot at Carles, the anonymous cowardly blogger who just talks mad shit abt artists all day long on his bloggyspot without contributing anything positive 2 the world. This Carles human is so sad that he almost represents a parody of a figure who is so obsessed with indie relevancy that he has gone completely insane and has his head up an invisible indie ass.

Carles's most notorious feud is with Best Coast.

VIDEO VLOG: Some altbro listens to the HRO Podcast while eating yogurt

</embed>

The HIPSTER RUNOFF PODCAST is a special feature content vertical created by popular blogger Carles. Many people listen to these podcasts, and have special, personal moments while they perform multiple tasks throughout the day. Sitting at your dead end office job. Sitting at a dead end Subway restaurant. On a meaningful elliptical at the gym. Going on a cross country drive 2 find urself.

It seems like this alternative bro listened to the HIPSTER RUNOFF April Fool's Comedy Special while vibing on a parfait and a sandwich. At the beginning of the video, he seemed 'engaged', and even shared a few delightful 'shit-eating grins', but like most HRO content, the gimmick got stale, and the small elements that were 'actually funny' were repeated and driven into the ground.

Does this bro seem 'chill'?
Is he an authentic HRO reader?
Do u think he has an 'official commenting account'?

Do u listen 2 Carles's voice?
Do u listen 2 him on the radio [via Sirius]?

</embed>

do u <3 or h8 the podcasts?
Should carles 'retire'?
Should Carles 'retire from content farming' and just focus on producing podcasts?
What do u want 2 hear podcasts abt?

Please feel free to record urself listening to HIPSTER RUNOFF audio content. I want 2 see the real u. I want to feel like we're hanging out IRL. I miss connecting with u. Sometimes I feel like we never talk any more and u only hear my voice via podcasts.

Real Photo of Carles emerges [via family vacation to Hoover Dam].


Carles recently went on a family vacay with his parents, family, wife, son, daughter, cousins, and estranged biological parents (awkward). It seems like this EXCLUSIVE photo of Carles was snapped, enjoying the sun & water slides at Hoover Dam water park. He is just riding chillwaves down the wall of the dam... Maybe there's not actually a buzz drought... Maybe some1 built a buzz dam, attempting to protect us from 'too much buzzworthy content.'

Carles writes NBA 'column' for GQ Magazine. Is he 'going mainstream'?


Carles is the blogger behind the popular alt content farm HIPSTER RUNOFF. But now it seems like he has 'spread his wings' and is taking more journalistic/blog-a-rific challenges, writing a 'progressive NBA column' for GQ Magazine's blog website on the buzz teams in the NBA. It appears as though Carles is attempting to 'brand himself' as an NBA Insider & NBA Expert, sharing insights in2 the_league.

Rumors are 'flying', accusing Carles of secretly 'being a mainstreamer' who 'watches tons of sports.' It seems like Carles's days as an alt blogger might be numbered as he moves on to cover sports, politics, and other mainstream crap. Carles is clearly 'at the top of the indie blogosphere', one of the only branded-writer-blogger personalities in the niche, and it is only a matter of time before he 'pulls a James Murphy', and goes out on top.

Carles analyzes buzz teams, similary to how he analyzes buzzbands.

A successful buzzband eventually has to decide, "Do I want to achieve critical relevance and shoot for 9.0s and above from Pitchfork for the rest of my career, or do I want to build a brand that sells albums to markets that actually buy albums?" Eventually, a buzz team must make sacrifices in order to achieve the ultimate mainstream success—an NBA championship.

Who is the mainstreamiest team of all time?
Who is the Arcade Fire of the NBA?

Carles shares his analysis of the 2k11 'buzz teams of tomorrow'...

I'd say that the Pacers, 76ers and Grizzlies are getting tons of buzz based on their 2011 playoff performances. The buzz team allows post-knowledgeable NBA fans to project visions of greatness for a team of unlikely players who we want to see succeed in the playoffs, not because of a direct emotional commitment to the team, but because buzzing the right team means that you "get" the NBA. You even get to buzz certain players: the ones who are playoffs (Tyler Hansbrough, Marc Gasol, Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner) or the "grizzled veterans who are respected but are ultimately failures who have been rebranded as having 'adapted to new roles'' (Shane Battier, Zach Randolph, Andre Iguodala).

Who is the buzzworthiest NBA team?
Who is the buzzworthiest NBA player?
Is Carles 'going stream'?
Is Carles 'a bro'?
Can Carles 'make it' into a dying magazine/ESPN.com?
Is HRO 'dying'?
Is 'alt' dying?
Has Carles 'plateaued' as an indie music journalist [via the content farm]?
Who will win the NBA Championship?
Do u believe in buzz teams?

Best Coast drummer Ali Koehler calls out HIPSTER RUNOFF for racist shock journalism


Former Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler has always been praised by HIPSTER RUNOFF blog for her career decision to tranfer to the Best Coast buzzband. Even thought Vivian Girls has seen tons of buzz on their most recent album cycle, she can probably make more personal profit margins touring in Best Coast, even if she doesn't have equity in the band. However, she took offense to a recent HIPSTER RUNOFF post that claimed Bethany Cosentino was canoodling with horrorcore rapper Tyler the Creator [link].

It turns out that the African American man in the picture is NOT Tyler the Creator. It is actually a different African American rapper. His name is 'The Wizard Khalifa.'

In the end, maybe Ali Koehler was right... but perhaps she has some bad blood with HIPSTER RUNOFF now that the Vivian Girls and Cults have 'stolen the buzz from Best Coast's 2k10 run...'

At the end of the day, this is just another edition of the long war between Best Coast and HIPSTER RUNOFF... but who will win in the end? Maybe every1 is a loser in this mudslinging battle.... 'Sigh...'

Picture of Carles and Ali before their falling out

Is HIPSTER RUNOFF the #1 journalistic integrituitous website on the internet?
Does HRO need a 'fact checking team'?
Is fact checking 4 lamestreamer news sources?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF The #1 alt meme farm on the internet?
Does journalism require tons of 'risk taking' and 'going with the flow' of the meme cycle?
IS it hard 2 be a perfect content farm?
Is the internet 'reality' or 'surreality'?
Is Carles 'racist' via thinking that all black ppl are ___________ (famous black persons)?

R u STANDING by the original HIPSTER RUNOFF report? Who is this African American man? Sorta feel like it might be Travie McCoy now...

Vivian Girls respond to HIPSTER RUNOFF's cyberbullying in new tell-all interview


HIPSTER RUNOFF has been in internet altercations and dramas with multiple indie buzzbands. While 'coverage' on HIPSTER RUNOFF can elevate your bands brand to the indie mainstream + expose your brand to tons of frontline tastemakers, the abusive cyberbullywave writing tone can take a psychological toll on the humans behind these buzzbands. There was the Best Coast incident where Bethany told Carles to eat a dick [link] and accused him of stealing her weed [link]. In addition, Nick Diamonds also threatened 2 kill Carles [link]. Now it seems like the Vivian Girls are finally 'lashing out' at Carles, the blogger behind HIPSTER RUNOFF for his unfair and biased coverage of their buzzband's career.

In an interview with some website, Cassie Ramone, the 2nd most famous member of the Vivian Girls behind Kickball Katy, she 'lets her hair down' and sounds out on HIPSTER RUNOFF.

You seem to be getting an increasing amount of abuse from Carles and the team at Hipster Runoff. Do you pay much attention?

It's really annoying more than anything else, but I guess that is his goal. That kind of stuff is exactly what I want to avoid as a musician - being a "meme," etc. I do read Hipster Runoff sometimes. I think Carles is very smart and sometimes his observations are right on, but I don't actually believe that he means any of the things he writes about. I view the blog more as conceptual art than anything else. However, it still doesn't feel good to be on the receiving end of it.

Is HIPSTER RUNOFF a cyberbully?
Should Carles 'leave the Vivian Girls alone'?
Are the most successful bands = 'memes'?
Does Carles mean everything that he writes?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF a conceptual art piece, or a legitimate music news source?

Ramone went on to say that Ali Koehler, their former drummer leaving is 'not a big deal' and that the band is stronger than ever. If you read into this, she is basically saying that Ali is a 'marginally talented drummer' and that the band is probably better off. BuzzGirlBands are s00oo0o catty, yall!

You’ve managed to lose two drummers along the way too. How’ve the changes affected your outlook?
I don't think I can stress this enough - it's really not that big of a deal! Bands change members all the time. Almost every band I can think of has gone through as many line-up changes as us, which isn't really that many. I think it's way more noteworthy if a band can keep a consistent line-up for their entire career.


Do u think we can finally say that the Vivian Girls are 'better off' without Ali Koehler?

Will this begin a series of interviews where the Vivian Girls are asked about their feelings on HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Is HRO 'bad 4 indie'?
Do u think the Vivian Girls have done a good job to overcome their low Pitchfork score? [link]
Do all buzzbands read blog/ HRO / Pitchfork?
Does Carles spend all day belittling the artistic efforts of others, contributing nothing positive to the progress of 'the modern scene'?
R u on #TeamVivianGirls or #TeamHipsterRunoff?
Do u have a crush on Cassie now?
Are the Vivian Girls a better long term band or meme than Best Coast?

*************
Oh Cassie....
Maybe I was wrong abt Kickball Katy needing 2 go solo...
Maybe u should be the 1 2go solbro...
Maybe I was distracted by Kickball Katy's jugs... [link]
