So Iʼm Not a Subculture

by William Jackson on 2004-10-14

Do I look mainstream?

I am so mainstream that I went to take the Which Subculture Are You Quiz, and none of the questions had answers that I could honestly choose. Six questions, seven answers apiece: forty-two radio buttons, and not a single one applied to me.

Okay, I may be exaggerating a bit; but Question One was, “Some Bands That You Listen To Include:” and “The Postal Service” and “Death Cab for Cutie” were listed in different choices. I was as confused as cheese on a peanut butter sandwich.

Question Three, “Some Words To Describe You Are:” could have been answered thusly: “Quiet, Intelligent, & Independent”. However, I try not to refer to myself as intelligent although others have told me I am, and I donʼt really think Iʼm all that independent either.

And I most certainly would never put a comma after the word “Intelligent” in that context.
