A recent LJ post by kbhoyt has filled me with solutions! Imagine, if you will, a subculture in my image! Here's how I imagine it:
They would dress in a mixture of formal and casual, kind of like me. Black pants and khakis would be common, along with elegent shoes. However, the top would consist of a tank top or light shirt (tucked into the pants) under a loose button-up shirt. Variations are extremely permissable, but that's the stereotype. No problem with any style of eye glasses. Hair can be short or long, but typically kept somewhat neat.
Typical pursuits involve intellectualism, odd conversations, near-obsessive research on off-the-wall topics, and a resigned love in the creation of all things artistic: writing, illustration, painting, filming, photography, craftsmanship, and so on. Although they are an intollerably tollerating (hee hee!) bunch, they don't like hard philosphy. They will, however, discuss religion and spiritually in a detached manner.
Music of choice is extremely varied, but it focused on R.E.M., Radiohead, Massive Attack, and anything with good compositional qualities.
They would normally be found hanging out with friends or working on some odd project.
So what would you call these people?
