Re: Slang. I want it.
Weird NW portmanteau of hipster and bro speak INCOMING
Cool. Not casually cool, but something that is really, really cool, in a cutting-edge kind of way.
Have you heard the new Arcade Fire album? It's super deck.
Also means cool, but in a more laid-back way, like when something unexpected goes in your favor or someone does you a solid and has your back.
Yeah, I was late to class but my professor totally didn't care. So chill.
A person who is "mainstream" or not knowledgeable about indie culture. Often used tongue-in-cheek.
Kyle and I were talking about new albums last night and he hadn't even heard the new Mountain Goats stuff. What a pleb, yeah?
A hipster in denial. The standard "hipster who hates other hipsters for being hipsters".
He threatened to punch me after I complimented his hipster scarf for being so deck. Yesterday he was wearing flannel and rocking thick glasses. He's such a HID.
Alternate Definition: Used in situations of great caution or care. Used ironically to poke fun at people who use it seriously.
I never drink and drive and I always wear a helmet while riding my bike. YOLO.
Wealth or status. Often used ironically.
Check these mechanical pencils, dawg. I got swag.
Man, Fight Club is dope as hell.
Bro (Also Brah, Broseidon, David Browie, and many more)
Can either be a term of affection for a friend who has your back, or sardonically for guys who act stereotypically macho.
Hey bro, what's up?
Ugh, those guys at The Vaccines concert were such bros. I could barely hear the band over them.
