Ok, after slog
mentioned that someone called her emo, I decided to finally find out what this emo thing was. After reading three pages of google hits, I can now safely say.... "wtf?"
I mean, it looks like someone decided the Beatnik idea has been laid aside sufficiently long to pull it back out, call it "new punk", remove everything that's cool about punk, add everything that's lame about goth, and decide that this means it's "emotional". Good lord, it's like the whiny bitch who never dies.
Ok, now that I've gotten that out of my system, I took some of the "are you emo" style quizes, and was amused to find that they all called me either punk or indie, none of them had results ending in "goth" of course. I'm sure this surprises no one. :)
Yes, I'm spamming y'all tonight because well, I'm bored, it's my birthday, and no one's awake on IRC. Deal.
