What is Underground?

Lots of stuff is underground.  Its just about finding something so cool that you're the only person who knows about it.  It can also be about finding the coolness in things that other people would otherwise consider normal or creepy.  Like mustaches.  You probably haven't realized that your uncle Chuck has had a mustache for years, but as soon as your hip friend Rico grows one, it makes him that much more legit.  So try to find stuff around you that's pretty underground and then get really into it.  It will help you be the coolest one out of all your friends.  Here are som sample topics to get you started...

Fixed gear bikes
Black rimmed glasses
Not liking stuff
Stumptown Coffee
Urban Outfitters
Sarah Palin
Ambiguous band names
"Labyrinth" with David Bowie
The harpsichord
New Jersey

I'm not sure I agree that Urban Outfitters is underground. That fact that there is an Urban Outfitters in Tigard at Bridgeport Village, would make it 'suburban outfitters' and 'above' ground I think.
Sarah Palin is definitely underground.
