trends that need to die. - Page 6

post #126 of 387
myspace none the least is a great way to get your bands music out there and you cannot argue that. Livejournal I have used it here and there, but nothing big. Ya I cant stand conner oberst fans. So in my opinion myspace is a good and bad thing.
post #127 of 387
well true. if you are using myspace to promote independent music there's no wrongdoing there. but it's the kids who feel the need to list every band that they know of as favorites just to prove their emo cred are the ones who give it such a horrible name sometimes.

Hahah they call those things 'freestyle shirts' here. I see all these little latin kids wearing ones that pass their knees. I think they look like skirts.

Y'know what? I'm just going to come out and say it. I like emo boys; the skinniness, the pastiness, the stretched holes, the black hair and tattoos... However, I'm not a fan either of the new wave of emo sweeping the nation. Ah well, I'm sure I'll get flack for saying that! :P

I didn't want to admit it either, but I also love those skinny pasty guys with shaggy hair. So hot.

And I'm also going to say this: I fucking LOVE my oversize sunglasses.

you can be skinny, pasty, and have shaggy hair and still NOT be emo! =)

and the oversized sunglasses look good depending on everything else you're wearing... and of course your face. but some people... no. (you, would probably look great in them)

oh, you should come down here where i am.

its everywhere.

emo kids basically a new generation of abercrombie kids.

hate hate hate it!!!
they're here in NJ too! it's a big emo kid state. most of them should just be forced to change. hah
I guess I sort of consider myself a bit of an emo kid, but I don't like this whole pseudo-emo movement that's going on now. To me, "emo" used to mean Sunny Day Real Estate, At The Drive In and Rites of Spring. Now what are these kids listening to, Taking Back Sunday and My Chemical Romance? C'mon now...

The real annoying part is when these kids want to be really unique individuals but just end up being overly opinionated and snobby about everything. And they do the exact same stuff that every other cool emo kid does. They can get a little pretentious. Too many people live the image and not the lifestyle. I've almost abandoned calling myself "emo" entirely...

I know that you can be skinny and pasty and not emo, I'm just saying, guys that look like that are hot. But emo music sucks.

And thanks for the compliment.

I believe the general unwritten rule is, wearing any rock t-shirt from the 90's onwards is NOT ok. I just avoid wearing any of them altogether.
I am going to have to correct you on that one. If someone goes to a show enjoys what they see then why not. Support the band and help them on the road. I know when my band would play thats how we made money to record. I think its pretty neat when the bands themselves design them and they actually come up with some great ideas. its all good with me. Oh and this does not include the mass done nickelback shirts and junk like that if you think thats what I am talking about.
What kind of music do(did) you guys play? You make it sound like you're not together anymore...

Im going to admit that I LOVE my Gucci fannypack. ha. Ive had it for a few years, still love it, and still rock it when I go out. It may have been me you saw wearing it two weeks ago. And as much as I now hate all the monogrammed purses out there....d&b, coach, (or like everyone here it looks like Goach...with all the fake Gs all over it)... I still love the Gucci fannypack. Its not as obnoxous of a monogram, it goes with everything i could wear, and its so useful! No carrying a purse or a little bag when im tramping around downtown.
And yeah it was all crazy in style a few years ago with sex and the city, but i like it even more now that hardly anyone wears it.

The trend i wish would die is those AWFUL Vera Bradley purses!
Newsflash. Grandmas knitting bag does not make a cute purse.

Haha, I'm so glad you said that! My mom used to carry those years ago, she had a huge collection. I finally convinced her not to, so she threw them all out. Now that they're all trendy, she can't understand why she ever wore them in the first place. They're terrible.

They don't understand that most people in an office need to wear khaki's, otherwise they would be subjected to seeing rustler, faded glory and arizona jeans on casual Fridays.

I have always thought that people who are tired of seeing trends are the ones who need to stop following trends. Personally I really don't care that much about what other people wear, and I really don't care what people think about what I wear. I wear what I want to, and I let other people have the same freedom from my judgement.

Explain it perfectly. However, the MCR and TBS are not that bad considering they blew up on their most recent albums, which gave all emo kids there insights on the music, but I have supported them from their first albums and still do as to they are doing what they love. They have been true and I am happy they have gotten more fans, but I also regret as well. The trend and following of this though kills what a lot of us started in. I do not know if I am confusing haha sorry I just got back from Batman, but if you understand then ya thats where I am at? :P

I listen to many bands and artists through out rock. None of this Nu-metal so to say as like Seether and Disturbed and such. No offense to anyone that does, I just don't. Man, haha I do not even know where to start with what I listen to though. You know anything from AC/DC to Further Seems Forever. its all there.

As for the band I was in, we are basically not anything anymore because of guys leaving for college and different musical taste. We had a guitarist who played with me and he was more for the "hardcore" scene with the norma jean and chariot stuff. I personally wanted to play rock. Something that was more then speed-picking to breakdown after breakdown. I just want to play rock n roll really. So thats how that ended. Music though is what I would like to do with my live, whether it be performing or production.

im just curious.. where do people buy skate brands other than Crap Sun?

also he's right about the cali-trendy girls. they usually do look ridiculous. all Juicy-ed out with their dark tans and oversized white rimmed sunglasses. it's a terrible, terrible thing imo.
actually, at skate stores they sell denim by brands that also make skateboards and stuff, and one specific brand krew sells denim thats extremely tight and stragiht. dont expect to find bootcuts in a real skate store (pac sun definately does NOT count).

Bebe tops with the rhinestones or their "athletic" wear with the rhinestones, clearly I like to blind everyone at the gym with my bebe encrusted "gym shorts"
post #150 of 387
Suburban white kids who speak/talk/act like they're from the ghetto. This pisses me off ENORMOUSLY, especially since it makes absolutely no sense!

And:

I can't remember who previously mentioned it but--- reality shows. They really make me want to never watch tv EVER again. American Idol? Just the name of that show alone is damn insulting. Gimme a break with this garbage. Dr. 90210 is perhaps the most sickening program I've ever seen. And not because of what they show--- because of half the people on it. The Surreal Life is downright scary. And forget about Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie's idiotic television cluster fuck.

Oh, and I forgot about that infuriating new show featuring Britney Spears and her husband. Talk about wanting to paint the wall with your brains. I never want to see Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Nicole Ritchie, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, or any of them EVER AGAIN.
