Okay, JohNyx, so I read your answer to my post, it seems basically what happened is a misunderstanding of your original intent. I totally agree that these kids were full of themselves. I don't think that's going to go away though. I think it's only going to get worse.

As for what emo "is" -- I can't really say. It's not really a counterculture because it would LOVE to be completely mainstream. It's really sort of hard to define it because it's really just a group of kids who have sort of common musical tastes and won't tell you to suck it up when you start whining about insipid things.

Lastly, I get the feeling people here think I'm "scene" because I want to fit into that group. Let me tell you, it is the last group of human beings I want to be around. I only like the music and the fashion. The people are awful in ways I find hard to describe. I only know one scene kid who is bearable to be around, and she has some serious problems. (She's also my best friend IRL. Make of that what you will.)

Take it from someone who's seen "Emo" a thousand times under a thousand guises - it's teen angst practised by a bunch of children who are convinced they're the first ones who ever felt this way :lulz:

No, no, no, no, no.
I'm sorry, emo kids might be the nicest people in the world, but their culture sucks. Horribly. It's just so petty and shallow. I guess the same could be said of all teen subcultures, but...
Well, fuck, it could. And would be true. You don't need a subculture. You want individuality? Be an individual. The thing about the scene look is that it's a uniform. You may think you're sticking out, but consider all the effort that you're putting into looking "scene". People don't see you as you, they see you as a scene kid. Here's a homework assignment: Watch the movie SLC Punk! It's extremely relevant to the subject of subcultures and identity. It may change your whole perspective on things and it's fucking entertaining too.

Oh, and scene music is terrible.  :argh!:

CUTE!

The Emo's here are like fungii in Australia, they seem to like dark damp places under the bridges by my understanding.

What breed of Emo's do you have?

I must add a rant from 'noxious' Titled "Circle of shit" here:

I know times are hard for you (cause' your a fuckin' emo) and you think you need to share all your problem with everyone (cause your a fuckin' emo) and now I'm trying to help you ( cause your a fuckin' emo). Best of luck. I would have sent this right to you but you're a fuckin' emo and I didn't want the drama.


The short and magical "Circle of Shit" theory resides below.

Quit bitching and crying, it will do your self esteem wonders! This boils down to a theory taught to me by me dad called the "Circle of Shit". If you imagine yourself as the center of a "dart board" or "circle" and assume the the outside areas or quadrants are your friends, work and life.
If you fill those outside areas with crying, complaints, misconceptions and what not (hence the "Shit" in the "Circle of Shit") You soon find yourself surrounded by "shit" and smelling like "shit". Break the circle. Don't smell like like shit.

* does not apply to those that complain sarcastically.

Oh, and scene music is terrible.  :argh!:

Just need to note a few things

A: I don't give a shit if it's a uniform, it's a DAMN PRETTY uniform and I fuckin' LIKE it. Individuality is nice and all, but I like what I like and if individuality gets in the way of that shit, it can go eat Roger's sewage output.
B: I AM NOT PUTTING EFFORT INTO THIS. That implies time spent and money spent beyond what I would be spending normally. Fuck that shit. I get haircuts anyway, why not get haircuts I like? I get clothes anyway, why not get clothes I'd want to wear? It all works out to the same price in the end if I'm doing the damn shopping, is actually easier than finding something else I like (hence time saved) and I'm happy in the end. FUCK YOU FOR SAYING THAT I SHOULDN'T BE HAPPY BECAUSE WHAT I LIKE IS MORE POPULAR THAN MERZBOW AT A FRAT PARTY. BITCH.
C: I can't be assed GIVING A SHIT about how what I like is a business card that refers to the carrier as "I M DOUCHEBAG." I can't be assed caring if the fucking inbred assrabbits with necks so red you could COOK YOUR FUCKING BACON ON THEM in this area don't see me for who "I really am", whatever the fuck that is. I'm going to dress and act and listen to what the fuck I like and if you have a problem with it because it happens to be something that's popular, SHOVE THIS UP YOUR ASS.
