Why I hate New York City, part 324987324987236
I hate New York City for not being New York enough to stomp these douches.
Oh god, even before watching the video I knew this was at the Bedford Ave stop.
For those not in the know, Bedford is a Brooklyn neighborhood populated entirely by 35 and under white yuppie hipsters.
I wish the hippies would come back.
Mellow out or you will pay.
MELLOW OUT OR YOU. WILL. PAY.
says the JAP in the grey sweater wasn't even part of their group, she just wouldn't go away.

Push 'em onto the 3rd rail.
I have Bedford Avenue Stop.
If those jeans got any skinnier their circulation would be cut off.
The drummer sucks

are there seriously ANY buskers anywhere who dont have a trust fund nowadays? besides gypsies, of course.
ps: i fail to see the 'eccentric artist' in this. needs more theremin, sousaphone, euphonium or possibly a bazouki before I can be bothered to even ironically call these people anything more than 'standard hippie scum'.

I used to hate hipsters until I realized these people aren't worth the slightest bit of attention
Busking is like, hopping aimlessly in tap shoes to shitty music? I honestly have never seen this term before.
The comments are pretty good, too. He claims, "Trust fund? This is my JOB!" Dude, your job sucks. I'd quit any job that I had to wear skinny jeans as part of the uniform. Also, someone's dad wasted a lot of money on tap lessons.
I don't know, people playing music on a subway stop. People play music in public. Even if I don't like it it's still a nice surprise to me.
On another note: please fix your damn tags, they need a comma to separate them.
In loo of my typical "fucking hipsters" one star response, these failed abortions get +2 for actually trying to play music. Upon further consideration I've changed that to +1 because they're trying to be ironic.
no, this is what it looks like when they try to really break out of their shell and do something earnest and heartfelt (loo)
worst part? i bet they're all stone cold sober, too
I could show you trust fund kids who are a thousand times more useless than these people, who are at least picking up objects and doing things with them and moving around a lot and at least trying to act like they're trying to be part of the world around them.

I suppose it makes me at least a tiny bit proud knowing that if they tried this in my hometown, they'd probably get spat on by some pikey teenagers with their tracky bottoms tucked into their socks.
This is actually pretty inoffensive, as hipsters go. I'd rather have these kids hanging out and being mildly entertaining than the usual "hanging out listlessly trying to get laid and out-do each other at not caring about shit" hipsters.

But if they're being listless and aloof, surely they're easier to ignore?

I saw some assholes like this in Korea, too. White foreigners, men with trimmed mustaches and sleek ponytails, playing shitty music on an "artsy" street in Seoul. I was like, aren't there any Koreans who NEED to perform for money? Like in Shanghai there was a guy playing an instrument made out of an honest to god tin can. That guy needed it. These people don't need it. They are assholes who play horrible music because they can afford to be awful.

I used to be a renegade. I used to fool around.
if blacks were in charge this shit wouldn't happen

I make music and films, and sometimes do both and call it a "music-film".
I like hopping freight trains, graffiti, motown, punk rock, and everything beautifull.
I am in the process of realizing that I own my life. I've been waking up for the past 4 years, even though I feel really tired. Soon I'll realise the controll I really have over everything, and I'll be happy forever.

By the way: "I like hopping freight trains"?
You aren't a real busker unless you're covered in dirt, haven't shaved or changed your clothes in at least three days and have an open guitar case for tips.

The comments in this thread have turned into your parents.
Five stars for the youtube comments. Unusual because I advocate the removal of youtube from the face of the earth.

Gaaaaarg, how dare people I dislike have fun? YOU DAMN KIDS WITH YOUR DAMN MUSIC AND YOUR "SKINNY JEANS". IN MY DAY WE HAD SOME GODDAMN RESPECT!
It wouldn't suck half as bad if they could actually fucking play.
Turns out this is the Freelance Whales, and turns out they're actually pretty decent to listen to.
So which of the Freelance Whales are you?
