    but isn't this what every generation says at some point? it's the very nature of the older/younger dynamic. to the older group (me/us), new trends/music often sound boring or at least highly derivative and "lesser" than the originals we liked, while the younger group (kids today!), who are part of it as it rises, embrace it as the next cool thing and probably like it ever more because the old farts "don't get it."

    Normcore seems to be based on that girl in Pattern Recognition by William Gibson - although she is allergic to labels as well.

    "Cayce Pollard A 32-year-old woman who lives in New York City. She pronounces her given name "Case" although her parents named her after Edgar Cayce. She uses her interest in marketing trends and fads, and her psychological sensitivity to logos and advertising, in her work as an advertising consultant. Her sensitivity becomes a phobia towards older corporate mascots, especially the Michelin Man. She wears only black, gray or white, usually Fruit of the Loom shrunken cotton t-shirts (all tags removed) with Levis jeans (with the trademarks filed off the buttons) or skirts, tights, boots, as well as a Buzz Rickson MA-1 bomber jacket."

    Which ironically became the "William Gibson" Buzz Rickson jacket, which was for sale on the Buzz Rickson site for a while.
