Please Explain to a Newly Inducted "Old Fart"

Please Explain to a Newly Inducted "Old Fart"
So I guess I've reached the age where I don't understand what "the kids" are talking about (at the ripe old number of 27, no less) and I'm currently breaking my brain on this.

Can some of the younger and/or more knowledgeable members of the forum explain what "scene" is? Why "scenepoints" even exist as A Thing? Why this is something only white people with first world problems would be interested in following? What makes a person part of a scene? What comprises "a scene"? I heard rockabilly was "a scene," and I love wearing neuvo-50's clothes (I look amazing in them) - do I run the risk of being assumed part of that scene because I wore something vintage with polka-dots and also have tattoos?

I want to know what separates them from any other portion of the human race who might like certain brands, colors or styles.

Please entertain me on my very very very boring Wednesday afternoon at the office.

(Yes, I've already googled and it's really not helping me since most of the answers are composed by people who write with Myspace spell-checkers)

Just LMAO at the notion of you being an "old fart."

Wait, Sweetie. You'll find out what the term means.

When I made the title, I did it for you, Min - honest truth. I was typing it and smiling wolfishly and just WAITING for your answer.

I'm off to check myself into the old fuck's home.

Occasionally I have more aches than my mother, who is 25 years older than me. But that could be because I'm harder on my body than she is. So yeah, sometimes I "feel" old.

This shit makes my brain feel dead, though.

whilest metalhead and whilest punker, my friends and I use to call our group "szene", and we would call groups from other towns, that towns "szene".
szene translates into scene. but that was about 3 years ago, and I dont know about today.

"Scene" is a type of music/fashion style. It's kind of an intermediary between "Emo" and "Hipster".

Except I can't see the difference between the three sometimes - people use them interchangeable. There's no Venn diagram?

Emo: Sad, wimpy and watered-down "Goth" kids-

Scene: The happy, more colorful "Emo" kids-

Hipster: What happens when these kids grow into young adults-

This unifying factor in all this is that this style is perceived to be "cool" and "trendy".

Around here, "hipster" implies not only cool and trendy, but also that "I'm so cool and trendy I was doing it before it was cool and trendy, and certainly before you."
