From a person whose living depends on other people buying her creative work, this may sound odd, but one of my favorite things about the steampunk subculture is its do-it-yourself attitude.
Kaja Foglio
The subculture of hot sauce is so fascinating and unique.
Sean Evans
The time for invisible boundaries that guard the ‘purity’ of gaming as a niche subculture is over. The violent macho power fantasy will no longer define what gaming is all about.
Anita Sarkeesian
Generally speaking, by the time a subculture such as steampunk secures the attention of major media, resulting in extensive coverage of the craze, said phenomenon is already on the way out.
Paul Di Filippo
A segregated spiritual subculture does women no good, even if it does have adorable butterflies in the logo.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
I like movies that are specific. Movies that home in on a very specific subculture, a specific discipline, a specific world.
Damien Chazelle
I think there are rock stars within every subgenre, and for people who are obsessed with musical theater Sutton Foster and Audra MacDonald are like Beyonce to them. I’m sure the a cappella world has their own version of that, and that exists in every geeky subculture.
Anna Kendrick
I’ve met some of the most interesting, dimensional, and kind people of my life in that subculture and around the sport. And it seems to me that boxing is one of those structures that is designed to promote harmony. I think that it is a stove that contains that fire in us and makes it safe and useful.
Katherine Dunn
I try not to become too regular an addict of any one subculture.
Jonathan Lethem
The worst thing you can do to a Juggalo is not know about their weird subculture.
Anders Holm
Artists are creating their own genre sound, and other artists are building upon that sound and already creating a huge subculture created around one particular sound created by one artist. So, with all that happening, the genres are going to break down, and there’s going to be a multitude of sound coming out.
Steve Aoki
I don’t like the idea that in music, clothes, taste or anything, we are limited to a certain style, because we need to maintain an identity, maybe between some subculture group. Hopefully, all those walls break down, and music is just music.
Sam Hunt
Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of people who don’t feel that they have it in them to do anything creative. They shrug and claim that they ‘have no talent.’ They say things like, ‘Don’t quit your day job’ or ‘Leave it to the professionals.’ In the steampunk subculture, I don’t hear those things.
Kaja Foglio
Baseball is this intense subculture that actually doesn’t speak very much for the larger culture.
Michael Lewis
I would dream. I focused all my attention on going to America. The subculture, James Dean, the rock n’ roll, the beat writers.

Kurt Sutter
I think people do sci-fi a huge disservice by lumping it as some sort of bizarre subculture genre when I think everybody’s lives are impacted by sci-fi at some point.
Mark Sheppard
All around me, I see girls forced to become rat racers in the College Application Industrial Complex, the subculture where students must craft themselves into the perfect specimens for college admission and often lose their authenticity, love of learning, and sense of self in the process.
Rachel Simmons
The subculture of felons is in great vogue among adolescents. Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, and so forth allow us Republicans to say to America’s young people, ‘We be thugs.’ The GOP may capture the youth vote at last.
P. J. O’Rourke
I feel that Christian music is a subculture directed towards the Christians. It’s not really being exposed to non-Christians and it’s not really created for non-Christians, so non-Christians almost never hear any of this music.
Larry Norman
There’s a thing in the U.K., particularly in London, where it’s kind of the idea of subculture and counterculture and the outside and the idea that it’s great to be a freak, and the freak always wins. So I think English girls are a lot less scared of being the freak or looking like an idiot.
Edie Campbell
I’m a pretty early adopter of social media. There’s a whole subculture to it. I’m smart enough not to tweet things out of emotion.

In the U.S., the conspiracy theory subculture has been hijacked by the Right to try to take down people like Obama and put forward rightwing libertarianism.

Halston was one of the hardest-working designers I have come across. The way he cut, moulded, manipulated and draped fabric was inspiring. I was submerged into the Halston subculture alongside Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Elizabeth Taylor and Truman Capote. They shaped who I have become as a designer.
Naeem Khan
In order to describe a particular subculture, you might want to portray people who are typical or representative of that subculture; but to dramatize it, to make it an interesting setting for a story, you want to bring someone anomalous into that setting, to see how she conforms to it, and it to her.
Jonathan Dee
