    LOL at the “We’re from different socioeconomic groups and we’re dancing”
    Good entry.

  • QuirkyChick13 September 16th, 2011 7:14 PM

    This is perfect advice. Just today I was thinking about turning my life into a movie. I was literally narrating my life as I walked from class to class like they do in the beginnings of movies! …..I’m so weird. ha ha

  • Ace September 16th, 2011 7:18 PM

    Definitely the last one :D

  • Whatsername September 16th, 2011 7:31 PM

    Quirky Indie Dramedy is totally me. Just like, everything about it. (y)

    {OMIGOD, is that the actor in Submarine? Alex Turner did the soundtrack for it -fangasm-. …./cough ksorry.}

  • Rita Unicornia September 16th, 2011 7:35 PM

    ’80′s brat pack is my favorite one… it fits this website too!

  • unicorn September 16th, 2011 7:48 PM

    i am going to go start speaking with a british accent now. it will be a part of my quirky indie kid dramady life.

  • I.ila September 16th, 2011 7:52 PM

    Shakespeare all the way…

  • That Crazy Dame September 16th, 2011 7:54 PM

    OMG! The “Quirky Indie Dramedy” stuff is ACTUALLY MY LIFE!!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!! I love this.

  • Angie Bitchface September 16th, 2011 7:57 PM

    apparently I should be in a “supernatural romance” movie. damn it!! I’d rather be modernized Shakespeare, it reminds me of my high school.

  • erin September 16th, 2011 8:04 PM

    I love the ’80s movies! Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Breakfast Club, Say Anything! They make me wish I lived in the ’80s.

  • EveyMarrie September 16th, 2011 8:05 PM

    I’d totally be 80s Brat Pack. Breakfast Club is enormously an important movie in my life<3 haha also I do love myself a Quirky Indie ;D

  • Anna F. September 16th, 2011 8:47 PM

  • AmandaLouiseHobba September 16th, 2011 9:20 PM

    Genius! I literally dropped what I was desperately needing to do in order to read this post, and I didnt stop reading until the end – very enjoyable!

  • writeranddreamer September 16th, 2011 10:13 PM

  • marypee22 September 16th, 2011 10:32 PM

    quirky indie dramedy
    one of the best posts yet!

  • rosietheriotgrrrl September 16th, 2011 10:33 PM

    the last one totally misses an opportunity on Footloose, haha.

    otherwise this is great :)
    i’m loving the site, keep up the good work!

  • littleDani September 17th, 2011 12:26 AM

    Pretty sure I’d be living in an indie coming of age movie.
    That probably makes me sound pretentious, but I’m just so quirky that I don’t give a damn. Now please excuse me while I wear a peacoat while listening to The Smiths.

  • Pashupati September 17th, 2011 5:43 AM

    We need more of this!

  • catstickers September 17th, 2011 7:28 AM

    this is so brilliant, I love the film Submarine, too!

  • Pashupati September 17th, 2011 9:49 AM

    Could anyone tell me from which movie is the boy picture in “dramedy”, category persona? Please, thanks :)

  • stephanie4786 September 17th, 2011 10:12 AM

    this is perfect

  • Stephanie September 17th, 2011 12:04 PM

    whoops… got really excited and pressed enter too soon
    You’re actually a psychic <3

  • Laia September 17th, 2011 12:53 PM

    I lost it at Shakespeare for sure!

  • prudence September 17th, 2011 2:09 PM

    This is just brilliant, what else could I say? I think my coming of age movie would’ve been a mixture of Indie and Shakespeare, as weird as it sounds in my head right now…

    But the last one’s definitely the best.

  • Toilets September 17th, 2011 2:25 PM

    “We’re from different socioeconomic groups and we’re dancing”, my face hurts from smiling :(

    @Pashupati – He’s from Submarine, which is directed by Richard Ayoade from the IT Crowd and so is therefore automatically brilliant.

  • espressoslut September 17th, 2011 5:23 PM

    quirky indie dramadey is on the nose for boys i think are attractive

  • Turquoise September 18th, 2011 4:57 AM
