"Emo haircuts" are no more ridiculous than mohawks, mullets, or any of the dozens of other music-associated haircuts that exist.  In fact, on most girls and some guys, they look fine.  People make fun of "emo hair" as much as they do "hair metal hair" and srsly people, the latter is so much worse.


The mullet is by far the worst haircut of them all.

If you could beat up and indie band, who would it be?

The Unicorns, for having the nerve to break up after only one (okay, I'll let you count Unicorns Are People Too as another half if you really want to) album.

I think most emo girls are cute in general.  Including their hair.

Too bad they're basically all vapid whores.

To be honest, I've never been one for girls with short hair, period. It really doesn't help when their hair is longer toward the front than in the back.

Is that some kind of Natalie Portman robot? Why is she standing like that?

Though, I guess if there was a Natalie Portbot it might explain why she agreed to be in George Lucas's Green Screen Extravaganza.

It could also have been because she's not a very good actress and was therefore not taking a role beneath her skill level.

Christopher Lee and Ewan McGregor were also in those movies and they are both fine actors.

Ben Kingsley was in Bloodrayne.

I can honestly say that every emo/scene girl I have ever known is reasonably vapid and sexually indiscriminate.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!  I enjoy the occasional vapid whore!  I know it's not, you know, good for me, but like a greasy cheeseburger, sometimes you just crave one!

Zerodrone excuses his previous statement by saying that sometimes he 'craves' the 'occasional vapid whore'.

He seems to think this somehow addresses the issue.

I don't think it's emo girls that are vapid whores as much as there are many people in their teenage years who happen to be sexually indiscriminate and almost all emo girls are in said teenage years.

Take any popular scene at any point and the girls seem like vapid whores because most of the fanbase will be teenagers and teenagers like to have a lot of sex.

Ewan MacGregor is hot and also has a lovely singing voice. Any indiscretions concerning his acting are therefore null and void and hold no merit with me.

That is absolutely not the reason why it is not a good thing to call a whole cultural group of women vapid whores.

That. But that also isn't what Jackie said, at all. Khar can be a difficult (and a gigantic asshole), but when he thinks you have said or done something offensive, you'd better believe it and take it on board.

why must we all be so catty?

SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE EMO GIRLS!

But seriously, it was just an off-the-cuff comment and wasn't intended to be this vast sweeping solemn declaration.  When I meet emo girls, I don't make fun of them or automatically assume they're stupid and easy until they display said behaviour.  Almost everyone on here has at one point said something as generalising and "offensive" as what I did, for whatever reason I'm just a popular target to be called out on every little thing I say that someone thinks is wrong.  I'm used to it, and I don't really get up panty-bunched about it.

In fact I haven't gotten actually panty-bunched from this forum in a very long time, and I keep wishing some other people would loosen up a little too, since I can't actually think of a single person who posts here that don't "like" as far as their personality is displayed via this forum.  Sure, sometimes people say things that make me roll my eyes or sigh, but if I respond at all to them I don't get serious about it.

Now I will stop being serious.

AND GET STONED.

Stating that every emo/scene girl I have ever met has been superficial and sexually promiscuous does not equate to hating women.  I like plenty of people who are vapid and/or whores.  Seriously.  Intelligence and chastity are overrated.

one hand rolling a joint, one hand typing? interesting.

Joints are by far the least efficient way to smoke weed, especially good weed.  I use a very small stone pipe, there is very minimal lossage because the bowl only needs to be lit for half a second due to the shortness of the "stem", and once the lighter is stopped the bowl almost immediately goes out, partially due to the kind of stone it's made of (I believe it's grey topaz) not holding heat very well.

Clearly I am NOT STONED ENOUGH because I just typed a paragraph scientifically explaining my method.

piece with a carb utilized properly is in my opinion the most efficient method. love a joint now and then, and i even enjoy an apple, but they waste a solid amount of stash.

i've recently (at long last) realized that natalie portman is a bad actress. she's pretty lovable, but it still doesn't really make up for the fact that she um... is not good. but it did distract from it for a while.

I contest that categorization. Recently he seems to me far more influenced by old school singer-songwriters, country/folk, and thematically involved in politics, Spiritualism and psychedelia far more than adolescent relationship venting. IMHO. Even when his songs do have relationship themes, it's never villainizing the other person, self-pitying or even self-loathing. Quite a bit more big-picture, peaceful, zen, take-it-as-it-comes stuff.
