Let’s redefining what gaul is.
-Listening to somewhat weird-never heard ’em indie/metal bands,
-Jazz (you don’t have to know the roots, listening to Tompi and Afgan are enough),
-List of your favourite movies would be = Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, Trainspotting, I Am Sam, Lost in Translation, Virgin Suicides, 24 Hours Party People, Wicker Park, all movies by Stanley Kubrick, some French movies, classic movies.
-Pretending to be nerd (thick rimmed oversized glasses is a MUST),
-Artsy (oh my God, it’s Warhol!)
-Wearing oh so retro-vintage-postmodern-harajuku-you name it clothes (don’t forget to buy those expensive *alternative* fashions at your nearest distro ™, it’s so D.I.Y),
-Don’t forget the skinny jeans (baggy trousers are so 2001),
-Oh and the keffiyeh (it means you’re a pro-palestinian, errr am I right?),
-Graphic design (basic photoshop/coreldraw skill is a MUST),
-Myspace or Facebook (Friendster is so last year),
-Lomography or digital SLR photography,
-Aksara – not Gramedia,
-Laptop (MacBook recommended) + Coffee shop/Mall with a wi-fi connection (warnet and Telkomnet instan are so last year),
-Low rider (motor ceper with knalpot blombongan are so barbaric).
-Emo (all emos are turned into metalheads),
-Dewa 19 and other top 40 bands (including Kangen Band and Radja),
….the bottom line to be uncool is to follow all the values that offered by mainstream medias such as tabloid gaul, keren beken, and aneka yess.
