Hi, contrived, angry, alienated, butt metal dude!!

so way to slap a sterotype on my face =)

1st off....Thursday....The Mouse...and Coheed sound nothing alike....and are far from "emo" as you put it....

Thursday is a hardcore band in every true sense of the word...Hardcore is what happned when the punks realized they didn't have to play "punk" any more....


Modest Mouse is an indie band whos influences range from The Pixies to Tom Waits.....far from "emo"....unless your ignorant ass would call the pixies and tom waits "emo" as well....

Coheed & Cambria is a prog rock/ sci-fi band Whose main influence's are rush and metal bands.....I guess that must make them "emo" as well...

Now If you want to know what real "emo" music is...here's a site that will explain to you what "emo" is...."www.fourfa.com"(sorry no hyperlink for you)....in short "emo" is a style of music that died out in the late 80's and most "emo" albums were pressed onto vinyl(a typical label was sub*pop) and are out of print anyway....

Requiem for a dream dictates what style of music I listen to??
Well if thats the case, you must be "emo" as fuck...because on your application you listed it twice...

"Best soundtrack: Requiem for a Dream
Best movie based on a book: Requiem for a Dream.


Now as for my "artsy" pics in which I look despondent and withdrawn....well I smoke a lot of weed....and well that's why =)

now back to your application
Best pop band/album: Christina Augulera/Dirty
Best rap group/album: Eminem/The Eminem Show
Best indie band/album: The Mars Volta/Deloused in the Comatorium
Best classic rock band/album:


Christina??? Do I need to even say more.....
The Eminem show is without a doubt his worst work....ask any em fan what their favorite album of his and odds are they'll say TSSLP or TMMLP(or even the 8 mile soundtrack) before listing TES
Way to be schooled in hip-hop as well =)

Best classic rock band/album: You left it blank!!!!! So now that's three types of music that you are quite ignorant(know nothing) about...

As for your favorite indie album, you said
Best indie band/album: The Mars Volta/Deloused in the Comatorium

Cedrick(the singer) was in "At The Drive In" before the mars volta(cedrick also has a vocal style to Claudio from coheed, a band you might like if you just got over yourself)...and both of those bands are/were labeled "emo" by uneducated self proclaimed music "know it all's" such as yourself.....So now by your standards your guilty of being "emo" on two accounts.....


Best fiction author/book: Steinbeck/East of Eden.
Have you read anything since the 9th grade??

now maybe if you got your head out of your ass, and stopped listening to lame butt metal. and listened to other types of music.....maybe then you could wax intellectual on the subject at hand....

oh and BTW on your application you misspelled socialism as "sciolism"

To quote Chef from a recent episode of South Park
OH MY LORD!!! You just got served something fierce!!!!!

All my love
<3333333 James ;)

P.S. BTW I looked at your pictures and your hairlines receding....

P.P.S. Don't bother going over my application and stating that I listed Requiem under best historical non-fiction, I misread it and thought it said fiction...

Also I'm aware of the fact that I wrote both "blank" and 35mm under photography....the blank should have been "digital"

oh and my favorite historical non-fiction book is

Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk
by Legs McNeil & Gillian McCain

...and, Thursday? a hardcore band?

I think you must be mistaken about where the line between emo and hardcore was drawn. I think you must also be mistaken by just...about everything you said. I'd correct you all, but....goddamn you, contemptuous effort.

Besides, you'd just turn it into some kind of flame war anyway, since you're clearly not mature enough to handle rejection.

You should just be thankful I didn't pick on your Brand New LJ username.

God, what a joke.

Making attacks on my character, or my phsyical appearance doesn't make you look any better, nor does it make you appear to be any less of a joke.

...the rest of this is a totally embarassing mess. You don't even know what sciolism means. www.dictionary.com. It's not hard.

I'd bother reading the rest of this, but, you've heard of stooping to someone's level, I'm sure.
