I was being (moderately) facetious. I do recall some use of the word indie, as well as being called one of the 'alternative kids' when I was in hs. I guess that's what flannel plaid, TMBG shirts and mary jane shoes meant back then.
There was both but they were different. Indie kids were the hipsters of the 90's. They were the ones that bought 7"s and had the obscure band t shirts. Alternative kids were the next step up. They were the people that listened to college radio and supported those bands.
Seven months ago, I asked LoveLuckLaughter to go hike some caves and waterfalls on a cold, crappy Oct weekend. Best idea I've ever had. Caught more feelings out on those strolls in the woods than any one man deserves. And I'm still falling head over heels for her crunchy, unicorn-asss every second since.
