    indie?

    Well, I know "Indie Films",
    but what does "indie" mean here ?
    http://home.iprimus.com.au/sparvin/indie.htm
    I read the whole thing but still don't get it.
    Just seems to me like some teenager's term?
    And...I guess "indie" is short for "independent",
    so can I just say "you are indie" when I want to say someone is independent?

    Yes, evidently it means 'independent', but it is obviously youth slang, and I would not use it expecting others to understand it necessarily.
