girl is quite hot.
t'Independent did a very similar article one day last week, built around The Horrors. Stereotypical likes include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dirty Pretty Things, and Donnie Darko
of 10 films, 10 bands, 10 tv shows, 10 books.... etc etc
you may tick more of their meaningless boxes!

DiS has THE worst taste in girls ever created.
anr there is no mention of the effect of Emo on house prices. Standards at the Mail are slipping.
That girl is some manner of goth, not emo. She has long hair and isn't wearing stripes or black rimmed glasses - nor can I see any trace of a star tattoo.
Even I can see that and I'm nothing.
i'm a bit scared.
the emo cult.
"Parents warned over the new EMO goth danger"
The Emos - short for Emotional - regard themselves as a cool, young sub-set of the Goths.
sorry i might quote the whole thing
'Emo bands (Green Day, My Chemical Romance), Emo conversation (sighing, wailing, poetry).'
'There is also a deadly glamour about the Goths. The word femme-fatale is Goth based.'
They're equating the French architectual style, with moody kids who cut themselves. I approve of this.
This article makes me feel cool. I knew about Emo when Emo kids were just "emo". Now they are "The Emo" and "An Emo".
Man, I am fuckin' Scene!
I had to stop reading at this point:
"The word femme-fatale is Goth based. Many of the alluring women of our time - Nigella Lawson, Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hynde, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Lily Allen - have a touch of the Goth about them."
says 'because they're an alternative to bouncy chavs'
um. lilly allen - emo or bouncing chav? you decide.
also lily allen.bleaurgrggrh
articles i've ever read
why do so many people on this message board read the daily mail website?
Means I don't have to read it yet get all the entertaining and stupid stories.
It'll be fun.
that emo is about...20 years old. sure does take some things a long while to get mainstream attention.
And I don't think it had anything to do with the Goths either.
I recommend a new category be invented to accomodate the evolution in styles between Goth and Emo.
G-Mo... or E-goth...
"Many of the alluring women of our time - Nigella Lawson, Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hynde, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Lily Allen - have a touch of the Goth about them."
man, Chrissie Hynde, what a fox.
''Emo conversation (sighing, wailing, poetry). .....Emos have a strong arts graduate bias and are among the few that read poetry (if only of the romantic, morbid kind''
it's like something from The Simpsons.
song that's emo, apparently.
"The Emo song, by the American band Adam And Andrew, has cult status on the internet, appearing on many personal websites. It is called Dear Diary and is both witty and alarming."
THE Emo song?
that seems to be Goth they are describing there
?!?!?!? when was the last time YOU saw a china doll?
carry china dolls. Although the whole creepy doll thing is very Japanese anyway.
they are clearly not ONLY referring to its recent music/sub-culture definitions.
i saw this on saturday and i'm still fuming.
this girls article is fucking shit.
i've written a rebutle but i'm having difficulty cutting it down to the 1000 charcters that i'm allowed
that its titled EMO CULT WARNING FOR PARENTS!!! RITES OF SPRING GIVE YOU CANCER!!!
also, i like thats it completely wrong on every level.
Never trust an article which can't spell Kurt Cobain.
"One governor of a famous boarding school told me that it was as serious a problem as binge drinking, but rarely discussed for fear of encouraging more girls to do it."
That made me laugh.
Is Russel Brand 90 percent Goth?!?
Oh, this is taking the piss right?
i always wondered why girls who went to grammar schools were so hard to get?
"In particular, Goths and Emos are a rebellion against sporty, manly cultures - which is perhaps why they flourish particularly in North European countries or North America."
Because they don't play sport in the Southern Hemisphere?
are taken into the desert to be eaten by dingoes. It's the only way to be sure they won't bring the rest of the population down.
but i doubt they will show mine, as i believe i called their newspaper 'cretinous'.
...I walked home from work and went past the Hammersmith Palais where there was about a 500-metre long queue of My Chemical Romance fans.
It was bizarre to see all these teenagers dressed in black together at the same time. But they defintely didn't seem to be posing a threat to society.
You should have run down the line with your hand out, slapping all of them across the face as you went. That would've been Hiiiii-larious.
"fucking emo's" the other evening. I certainly would not class myself as one, but it did get me thinking: Are Chav's and Emo's mortal enemies?
Drive a vespa? What the fuck?
This is my favourite quote ever: "One governor of a famous boarding school told me that it was as serious a problem as binge drinking, but rarely discussed for fear of encouraging more girls to do it."
Yes, it's a SERIOUS PROBLEM, so lets just ignore it and hope it goes away. Right.
