Hey everyone <3
I haven’t posted here in FOREVER. Just so everyone knows, the emo chat room has been shut down lol. I will be posting here soon so stay tuned.
After I made this post, I realized it had LITERALLY been a year since I posted.
Wow. Worst blogger ever amirite?
Hey guys, just got an email I wanted to share:
Starting this Saturday (11/21), every purchase of over $50 you make you will get a $25 gift card. This is an awesome deal, I’ll probably order a hoodie or something and than another when I get the gift card.
In store black friday deals:
They have a lot of black friday deals online, so make sure you check their website ;P
For those of you who didn’t tl;dr this, here’s a coupon for 15% online orders: “Thanks”.
It seems that today emo music is overrated, because of bands like Hawthorne Heights and Bayside who sing needlessly about cutting and so on. Like my friend Nikc once told me “Screamo is a bunch of [people that dress completely black] with a gay haircut that covers an eye.” Nick is a metalhead so I guess his opinion doesn’t matter.
When I googled “emo quotes” I got the famous Adam and Andrew song, and many obnoxious things, but in the ones that were “trying not to be mean” I got:
Cut our wrists like cheap coupons and say that death was on sale today.
- Marylin Manson
I think emo music really has become overrated.
You all remember The Face right? How he suddenly disappeared?Well, i have something to say. It is I, The Face. I decided to make a new account after i became too powerful. All these people at my feet and all i did was post my opinion. I decided i was too powerful and took refuge in a new account who would quickly rise through the ranks, Roylance. I know you don’t want to believe this, but i thought it has gone on too long. From tomorrow Im ditching my Roylance account and bringing back The Face. You probably will be confused as it is the same person posting, but do not fear, i’ll make the transition easy for you.I must say, i was surprised that i stayed as Roylance for so long. It became an addiction and i soon forgot about my old account. This Roylance character i had created was simply amazing, people respected him, feared him.It was something i could never do as The Face.I’m sorry i fooled you all for so long, but remember it was never personal.-Syd (Aka; The Face)
Saint Valentines day shouldn’t be about spending money, it should be about spending time.
How to be romantic without having to spend a lot of money:
-just be together
-go dancing, or ice skating
-have a picnic, by moonlight
-make a “mixtape” (cd, or playlist)
-go to a park, and play like little kids
-give a back massage, a nice long one
-give a foot massage (this is especially good if your sweetheart works)
-bake (muffins, cookies, cupcakes)
-stay at home and watch movies together
Just use your imagination, and not your wallet
Just reading through the comments of my I HATE EMO KIDS post… why would I be writing for Emo The Blog if I were a hater? Really, are people that stupid? I don’t think most people even understood what I meant. I was talking about the stereotype. I hate the stereotype that people try to conform to, and yet so many people took it personally. It proved my point even further, anyone who took offense or disagreed with me, that post was directed at you. Anyone who agreed with me is either a hater themselves, or actually understood what I meant.
This is the most important part of that post:
“I don’t hate you, I don’t hate the way you dress, and I don’t hate the music you listen to. What I do hate is the stereotype you’ve helped create. I hate the way YOU have helped to give emo a bad name.”
Why did so many people take offense to being told the truth?
Other people don’t really care about YOU. Everyone is out for themselves.
This is what I meant by Equality is Fiction. Everyone talks about how we should all be equals, I disagree.
You strive to be different, yet complain when you’re treated differently. How is that supposed to work?
If you don’t want to be treated differently (taking the bad with the good), then don’t try to be different.
And here’s something important to consider: having a differing opinion is not the same as hating.

And one final note, if you haven’t done it already, go check out the forum.
With the Holidays coming up and everyone suddenly becoming obsessed with showering others (and themselves)
in gifts, I figured it’d be a good time to finally post an entry after seven or more months of nothing-ness.
One of the main staples of the Scene/’Emo’ culture has been music, and its hard to find someone
today who dosn’t have a music player of some sort. So when I found this tutorial on a Hand-Made Ipod/MP3 Player Sheep Case, I realized I had to try it, or at least recommend it to others.
The tutorial assumes a basic knowledge of sewing, and uses an Ipod nano as the mp3 player base,
but I imagine you could edit it for other ipods. This tutorial will take some time depending on your skill in sewing.
Materials used throughout can be purchased at any basic craft store like Michaels, Joann Fabrics, AC More, Etc.
Other: The tutorial lacks some important information, (such as the materials, which I listed above) and assumes a previous knowledge of basic sewing. Steps such as making and attatching the ears are not included, and such steps appear to be fairly easy. I may come back with my own pictures/descriptions for the missing steps.
None the less, the tutorial includes a step where you can add a decor (such as a lolipop, made out of three small peices of fabric and a tiny button). I would advise skipping this step if your pressed for time, or looking for something a little simpler. (Several craft-stores have buttons shaped in small figures; sewing or glueing one on might be more prudent.)
Tutorial URL: http://www.hipgirlie.com/2007/11/06/diy-ipod-mp3-case/
Making the Ears: Using the same Color felt used for the front case, cut two circles slightly
bigger then you want the ears to be. Next, cut two circles slightly smaller then your previous ones
out of the material you want the inside of the ear to be. You can then either sew the two smaller circles into the big ones, or hot glue-gun it in.(I’d advise the latter for easy-ness and less stitching).
Next, fold the outer circles in half, putting pressure on the end you want to insert into the case, so the opposite side puffs open, giving a view of the inside of the ear. Glue/Sew shut the end that will be inserted. Repeat for other ear, remembering to squeeze the opposing side to make the opposite ear. (You don’t want a sheep with two right ears, now do you?) Sew into space that was left open during case assembly.
*If your ambitious in making this more realistic, cutting two slightly oval-ish shapes would probably be better. Circles just seemed simpler at the time.
Making The Face: Using a different color felt then for your cover, cut a heart-shape out. The ‘indent’ at the top of the heart should not be large, and the bottom should be rounded rather then pointy. (Unless your going for a more menacing looking sheep.) In the center of the heart (using a ruler would be useful), draw the sheeps nose and mouth. (Use the picture in the tutorial for an example, or make it an emow sheep and give it a frown.) Then, we’ll attatch the eyes. The eyes should be neither to close nor to far from the nose and outer side. If you (PRETEND) to cut the face into four quarters going through the center where the nose is, then the eyes should be in the center of the upper two quarters. Either draw the eyes on with the fabric pen, or gently glue two small beads in the desired eye color . (I’d advise super glue/industrial strength rather then hot for this part). Sewing is most likely an option as well, but you don’t want your sheeps eyes to bug out, and I’m not sure how to do so without that happening.
The face appears to be glued onto the cover as well, though if you wanted to stitch it on it’d probably be sturdier.
If Anyone Makes This Tutorial or Edits it and Makes their own animal using this as a base, I’d love to see pictures. (I’d even post a link in this blog to it if you’d like, to give other people ideas). I plan on making an ‘albino black sheep’ sometime, but it probably wont happen until after the holidays.
More ‘Added Steps’ might be edited in as I think of them. The eyelets/buttons usually comes with instructions on the packets for doing so.
I’m not a fan of horror, to be honest, it usually bores me. But Zombie movies are something else! (Ok, I admit it, I also like vampire and werewolf films too). Unfortunately, most zombie movies are trash. The ones I like have a bit more to their plot. I want zombies that I can BELIEVE in. So, I thought I’d try my hand at writing film reviews, just in time for Halloween.
28 Days Later (2002)
This is the BEST zombie movie I have ever seen. I’m not sure why. Maybe It’s because it has a believable plot. The story has a decent pace with no boring bits, and although the cast is not well known, they play the characters well. And the one thing that really drew me in: the soundtrack.
28 Weeks Later (2007)
The zombies are back. This time the cast has some better known names, such as Robert Carlyle and Rose Byrne, but these aren’t actors who just rely on their fame to get them through. Again, the believability of the plot helps the film to hold its own, and again the soundtrack tops it off.
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
I laughed. I actually found it funny, sure it’s more than a bit gory, but its simplicity is amusing. Who the hell would take refuge in a shopping mall?????
If you don’t mind a bit of gore and a somewhat predictable plotline, watch it.
It’s not bad, but it’s not brilliant either.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Its B&W, it’s a classic.
Dramatic music and lots of shrieks.
Ghosts of Mars (2001)
A John Carpenter film. While it’s not really a zombie movie (it’s more of a possession one), it comes pretty damn close. Strangely its set on Mars (would never have guessed it going by the title)
Non Zombie movies that I recommend:
Nightwatch (Nochnoy dozor) (2004) Russian
Daywatch (Dnevnoy dozor) (2006) Russian
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (2002)
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994)
Brotherhood of the Wolf (Le Pacte des loupes) (2001) French
The Brothers Grimm (2005)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
So as my first blog I will be writing a similar blog to that of the segment off the Family Guy Movie, a segment entitled, “What really grinds my gears”. This will be my own verison.
You know what really grinds my gears?
When i can’t decide to play with my batman or my legos.
I mean. . . batman has all the skills. But the lego i can make so many things like, lions and jungles and pirates and castles.
But there is a soltion. A lego batman.
This really annoys me. Now struck with a senario in which i can play batman and lego it seems my problem is ultimately resolved. But no.
Lego batman does not have any of the skills that the real batman doll has. Sure he can now carry a wide arangement of lego weapons, but he doesn’t have a legit cape.
Seriously i am pissed off now. It seems to be my parents fault. Why did they buy me batman AND legos. I HATE THEM.
Talking about capes, i mean, why cant spider man have a cape? Spider man is just as good as batman, in fact probably better. Can batman fire webs from his hands? can batman beat bonesaw in the cage? can batman score with kirsten dunst?
I think not.
Kirsten Dunst. I mean what a shit actor. C’mon did you ever see wimbledon? What the fuck! What the fuck! Tennis is lame people, tennis is lame.
And that is what really grinds my gears.
