Damn kids…

I was at starbucks last night (as I am most nights after work, now) working on The Great American Novel when I saw a little emo boy come in.

I swear to God, I know I’m getting older — thus less tolerant for youth — because I wanted to punch this emo in his face so he had good reason to be sad and pathetic.

I moreso wanted to do it when I saw his fingernails were painted black.

Damn kids.

I hear ya. I am starting to despise the emo kids too. They make me think of that Dead Milkmen song:

you wear all black
and say you’re poetic
but the truth is that
you’re just pathetic

There should be NaPuEmoMo — National Punch the Emo’s Month!


aw, c’mon now gramps – have a soft spot for the next generation. I find youthful angst quite endearing.


Snooze, I just don’t get it. WHEN I WAS HIS AGE WE DIDN’T HAVE BLACK CLOTHES! If we wanted a black shirt, we had to dye it! ๐Ÿ˜ก


Wow, you’re old. When I was a kid we all wore black.


Stewie, I went to a preppy high school so I can only look at the emo boys and goth girls with envy. I was in pastel Lacoste (VOMIT). And Ace, easy now, I’m older than Stewie.


:bff: That’s how I feel every time, too. One day, I was at Target, and these emo kids were looking at DVDs and blocking everything I was trying to look at. They kept running their fingers through their hair and sighing. So, I went over to the toy section and picked up a skateboard, and walked back there to where they were. I would have grabbed a Louisville Slugger, but that would have been premeditated. I said to them, “If one more of you bastards sigh once more, I’m killing the whole mother fucking lot of you.” One of them,… Read more »

My friend invited me to a concert where there were a bunch of scene kids. Scene is worse than emo. They’re the ones with bandanas in their backpockets, along with all of the emo features.

Anyway, I went around “scene hunting”, that is, stealing their bandanas. And I just about decked some scene kid in front of his 12-year-old girlfriend because he was being a little dick about me taking his bandana.

I spit on him instead and he cried.


Ace, you’ll be here in 4 years!

Snooze, goth girls are HOT. I don’t mind goth at all. I just hate emo.

Ron. Wow. I shed a small tear. Not an emo tear, mind you. A tear of happiness and joy.

Blonde, that is why you rule. You are like Alec Baldwin in Miami Blues. You must see that to get the true meaning of what I, uh, mean.


We got Nemos here. That is Neo-Emos.

they are such pussies.

hate ’em.

I just don’t understand when emo turned into such a pussy thing.

Ok, it always had it’s pussy moments, I mean just by definition it will be pussified… but that’s ok. I like some pussy in my music (insert an AR Morrissey/Smiths joke here). When did Sunny Day Real Estate, Knapsack and The Promise Ring — and the “Screamo” bands like Planes Mistaken for Stars, Hot Water Music & Small Brown Bike — turn into make-up wearing, pseudo-goth, pussifery?

I have not been able to pinpoint the moment when emo got too emo for the emo kids.


I think emo was a spinoff of goth. It was kids trying to be goth, but they didn’t know how to act, so they acted sad and fucked everything up.
