“dear live journal, today will be my last entry, as i am going to kill myself…”
yes, emo. whether you’re in a music store, walking down the street, or listening to the radio, you can’t escape it. but how can you tell a legit emo-fag from a normal loser? well boys and girls, that’s why i’m here. to educate, as well as entertain.
step 1: lingo
emo– a>punk on estrogen. Often acoustic guitar with soft, high male vocals that dwell exessively on the singer’s feelings, especially melancholy remembrances of past relationships/mistakes in life. A form of music that diverged from punk in the ’80s, the name “emo” is derived from the emotive style of the lyrics and music. b>A group of white, mostly middle-class well-off kids who find imperfections in there life and create a ridiculous, depressing melodrama around each one. They often take anti-depressants, even though the majority don’t need them.
XxSlavetoAnguishxX: omg my gf just left me
acidburnedsoul: that sux man
XxSlavetoAnguishxX: i blame myself only i’m such an ass *cries*
acidburnedsoul: dude come over to my house and we can cut ourselves together
XxSlavetoAnguishxX: okay *cries*
acidburnedsoul: omg dashboard confessional has a new cd, i preordered it already
XxSlavetoAnguishxX: dude they’re my favorite band to self-mutilate to
acidburnedsoul: me too. i hate myself
XxSlavetoAnguishxX: yeah we’re such tortured souls, nobody understands how hard life is for us
acidburnedsoul: yeah we got it tough dude. pass the tissues
scene-kids– boy/girl. usually seen wearing neon colors w/ black. leopard and/or zebra print obsessed. hair colored at least 2 different colors and cut at different angles. scene kids usually try to attain over 500 friends on myspace and post pictures up of themselves regularly. female scene kids just ADORE neon colored eye shadow and wear one thousand layers of eyeliner. hair of both sexes is usually parted to the side.
A good general rule of thumb when trying to tell whether it is a scene kid or emo, if you have to ask wether it is a boy or girl its a scene kid.
the take home message: emo-fags fail at life.
a public service announcement, from me.
