    i saw that. i asked the mods to step in as it's clearly got out of hand. they said they're monitoring it for the time being to see if it can be resolved on its own.

    really upsetting and unpleasant to watch actually.

    Tremendously acrimonious. One wonders if there isn't some personal background to the dispute, a history.

    She did this follow-up with Skrillex and Diplo, both of whom loom large in the '10s

    Default Young Thug- 2 Cups Stuffed (2013)

    This date was regarded as the end-date of a 5,126-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. A New Age interpretation held that the date marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants would undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 21 December 2012 would mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggested that the date marked the end of the world or a similar catastrophe.

    2013 was the year of Alkaline and 1017 Thug. The new era.

    Default Migos- Versace (2013)

    Though on the surface a silly novelty track, it did unleash on the world the whack-a-mole rhythmic aesthetic that'd be refined into something wonderful.

    I've seen Calvin Harris live. A formative experience.

    The 2010s were - of course - the decade of the hipster. See the threads on this very forum.

    Hipsterism was well under way, and maybe at its most visceral in the 00s though. Brick Lane was 10min from where I lived. From moving there in 2003 I got to witness it slowly grow and take over. Peaking right around the end of the decade. Can't say when exactly but it went from garish neon 80s maximal to beards and lumberjack shirts and then tattoos around the end of the decade. For me hipsters are the neon ones and the bearded lumberjacks are some sort of post hipster. Way more conservative and also more accessible to the average youth.

    Pattys right. By the 2010s the signifiers of the hipster are so widespread and diffuse it ceases to have any useful meaning beyond a kind of aspirational middle class lifestyle.
