Carles, of hippsterunoff.com, is my favorite contemporary philosopher. His latest:
Speaking of indie rock, how about the Super Bowl? I cannot believe MIA flipped off the camera. I can't believe Grizzlie Bear was in a commercial. I can't believe an indie band was in a commercial. Indie has gone mainstream! The Arcade Fire played the halftime show. I can't believe Vampire Weekend played the pregame show. I can't believe the totally cool, hip, indie buzz band, The Lumineers, hit song "Hey Ho" was used as the soundtrack of the game. Congratulations to the Dallas Cowboys on winning the Super Bowl against the Pittsburgh Steelers. America's team -- we did it again! They can never take that away from us. Never! The can never take that away from you. Never.
