This summer I decided to bolster my music collection, and in doing so, discovered six artists I really like and want to follow - those artists are in red. In addition, I added to my collection of artists I have known and meant to explore further, but never got around to until recently - those artists are in blue. The rest of the artists in my P T T don’t get a lot of recognition on the boards, but I think people should know them - those artists are in green.

The Decemberists, Travis, and Weezer, and Wilco are in my top bands, so I had to include them. I’ve also added some trivia questions as well, with the prize for answering being useless, arcane knowledge.

I'm guessing that Wilco has appeared in the other PTTs and Sky blue Sky is the song that's been repeated. Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) is obviously the one with the show (Portlandia). I can't answer the other ones off the top of my head.

I told Lucky it was like I had you and Ben in my head when I made my list :D

Yes on the artist, NO on the song.

Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) is obviously the one with the show (Portlandia).

For that correct answer, I'm going to put a bird on you. PUT. A. BIRD. ON. IT!

There were acutally FOUR artist on my list that have appeared on Portlandia.

Justice Potter Stewart once said of pornography, (paraphrasing) "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it."

Most people feel the same way about hipsters. We can't tell you what a hipster is, but we damn well know what one looks like if we see them. Picture a dude in jeggings, wearing snakeskin boots, a band t-shirt, a scarf, a Van Dyke beard and a fedora. That's a hipster.
