Dissensus - the T-shirt

Darned cockwombles.
(copied over from the hispters thread)

The unprompted thought popped into my head this morning that 'Hipsters: Scourge or Irrelevance?' would have to have a place in a hypothetical line of Dissensus T-shirts.

Any other thoughts (who was it who referred to something somebody had written the other day as 'the most Dissensus comment ever written'?)?

Suggestions so far:
"I AM A DEFENDER OF SIMON REYNOLD'S FACE"
"NUUM GENERAL"
and, for Zhao:
"I've got any number of African T-shirts that are infintely better than this emotionally-constipated European shit."

I think

It's sort of an awkward, moody non-sequitur of coffee / vanilla / chocolate / damp wood flavours, but strangely satisfying. Sort like of a Beckett play in beer format.
might well be one of the most Dissensian things I've ever read.

Also, "Q. WHO INVENTED ELVES".

and of course:

"if there is a bigger concentration of cunts anywhere on the internet than dissensus i am yet to see it tbh"

That's a great Tim Finney quote. Something that used to really wind me up about Dissensus in its theory-heavy days was that whenever anyone started waxing theoretical about music they'd basically end up concluding that the music that they like is somehow fundamentally Good and Important and the music that they don't like is somehow fundamentally Bad and Redundant. If Theory is never going to challenge your existing way of thinking about things, what's the point?

I'll take an 'owl-bass' tee.

Also, the Press Release Hall Of Shame Thread is a literal goldmine for anyone taking up this endeavour.

Not a bad thread but judging by suggestions so far in student days u man were rolling around wearing t-shirts saying 'One tequila two tequila three tequila floor' and 'I see dead people'

I'd also like to see the labels on these items embroidered with 'Pointless, but it makes me chuckle to myself'
