Nice KO tho.
So, nobody ever saw Maurice Smith kiss Mike Bernardo during their K1 prefight staredown? (Would've been something like 6 years ago.) This version was lame on so many levels, including the lack of originality.
Hehe yeah, I swear to god ... I mean, I have nothing against outsiders, I've been an outsider my whole life, and I sure wasn't a sexy one ... but :( these emo kids have taken all of the independent thought out of being anti-authoritarian. How can you be anti-authority when you consume on SUCH A SCALE? I swear to god, each of these kids employs an entire fucking hair care products company.

Sorry for that, folks. And that's just their vapid consumption. I've got tons more! Sexual homogenity! Groupthink in fashion, musical taste and image! Hot Topic Hos! Political ignorance!
THESE ARE ALL JUST LITTLE SUBITEMS UNDER THE CATEGORY OF "EMO" IN MY ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF RAGE! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!
I need to spar now. :(
Aye, I was scared when I found how emo-yish i may look:
-The clothes (well, not too emo, I donīt dye my hair, paint my nails or use make up, or extremely tight clothes)
-I really liked "Catcher in the Rye" and J.D. Salingerīs novels by extension, altrough I think Raymon Carver is so much better.
-I really like emo-like bands, like Queens of the Stone Age and such.
-Iīm a fan of the seventies (you should see my ridiculous sideburns).
-The thick-rimmed glasses.
-I like emo-girls.
Fortunately, the emo thing in Spain has imported only the aesthetics, and not the shitty attitude.
Hahahaha -- okay, I get you.

But, fortunately, now the distinction has grown more obvious, as the emo kids all strive to set themselves apart from the other emo kids. Although I recently had my hair buzzed, just so that's one less thing that people can make assumptions about.
The distinction between "emo" and "not emo" is the distinction between people who need an audience or there's no point in doing that thing, and people who do things because they're important to them. :) So ... having developed literary or musical taste, keeping yourself and your surroundings clean and tastefully decorated, versus reading stuff that people say is cool, seeking out music that people say is cool, and decorating your apartment in a way that is designed to say "I'm cool."
I know a couple of guys from Spain. Heh, I think that Spain as a whole has a ways to go before it can reach the critical mass of consumer product consumption, drama queens, suburbia, media intoxication and reflexive stylistic cannibalism necessary to produce this phenomenon of "emo."
****, Queens of the Stone Age has something to do with those dumb kids wearing makeup that get in my way when I go to the mall to see whether Copelands got any new mouthguards in?
QOTSA, Franz Ferdinand and bands a-like is what the spanish emo branch is into.
Altrought the emo label itīs rarely used, and almost unknown.
The label we use is "alternata" (a despising form of "alternativo" -alternate), commonly used to label indies, gafapastas (thick-rimmed-glasses, the real spanish equivalente of the emo kids, but with a pretentious air of intelectualism) and the likes.
No. They're fine.

However, because it's impossible to hide cool music from stupid people, a lot of these teenaged drama queens may decide to like the same music that you do.
You can console yourself with knowing that eventually they will do a cry for help in a part of the world that is deaf to that kind of thing, and actually commit suicide, which they have been threatening to do for the last six years.
Ha all in my iTunes.
even G Love And The Special Sauce, Dropkick Murphy's, Bad Religio
Guess I'm an aging academic emo.
