      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

emo is taking over THE WORLD!

Recommended Posts

interesting new clip. I wonder if it will help any kinds. I attempted suicide 2 times when i was a teen and was a habitual cutter. I still carry scares to this day. it's is a good thing that people are getting educated. it is terrifying that this way of living is "popular" rather than fringe. why would a normal happy kid want to be fucked up? being a teen ager is hard and sucks. at least i always thought so. they did get a lot right. i went years with out wearing shorts skits or bathing suits because i was cutting so much. i always wore a million bracelets and gloves.

 

is there really that much of our adolescent society that is that depressed and fucked up?

 

they did not touch on the use of X or other drugs and they should have.

 

they should have asked the kid why he ran away...

Thinking that "Emo or Fixie?" could make for a good game-show or carnival attraction. Might prove more challenging for the crowd that frequents the ride/game area at state fairs than knocking over lead-impregnated milk-bottles with foam-core softballs.

 

I have to think that winning the 4"x4" Van-Halen/Pot-Leaf/Confederate-Flag/etc mirror with the plastic frame for your girlfriend by making the right choice in the "Emo or Fixie" stand will highlight the sensitive elements of one's character and lead to way more post-gravitron/octopus/roller-coaster/teacup-ride action than a display of raw physical prowress at the milk-bottle/squirtgun+clownmouth-ballon-inflation/weight-on-pole-elevation with-sledgehammer/etc would in this more refined and delicate era.

Quoting...

 

"That's for the special PDX Fixster (fixie-hipster) edition. Add Krypto mini-lock in the back pocket of the brown polyester shants, Chrome messenger bag, and not-wearing-a-helmet-even-though-you-are-completely-oblivious-to-traffic-and-are-basically-asking-to-get-hit-so-your-other-1,000-hipster-clone-friends-can-have-a-nude-candlelight-critical-mass-vigil-ride-to-protest-the-tyranny-of-the-automobile-and-lament-your-tragic-but-ultimately-utterly-predictable-death. Oh, and non-functioning brake lever so the cops don't stop you for brakeless fixie-pedaling."

Jay, you make no sense sometimes.

 

Sure, the fixie crowd has it's own "look", how do you relate that to the self-mutilating slacker crowd again???

 

Most of the fixie riders I know are badass riders that would never adopt the "world sucks. I hate myself and everything" attitude - they just want the shock value of the look.

 

Or maybe that was the difficulty of discernment....ok, I get it. Nevermind. :P

I don't understand how people can still be so oblivious about things like emo. With the media and internet practically force-feeding info to us, even the most blissfully ignorant soccer mom should've at least heard the term by now.

Just the look, not the attitude.

 

I suspect there's a difference between people who ride the bikes for a living and those who ride them for fashion, too.

I think some people have a need to suffer. If they don't get it, they figure out how make it happen.

 

I think they should just pair these kids up with Layton or Colin for a weekend. Those guys would take them along on one of their little climbing trips and show 'em what suffering is really like. A lifetime of suffering compressed into two days.

Why not just join The Mountaineers?

 

P.S. Don't forget your bouldering gaitors!

Teens rebel, as time goes on each new generation of teens has to find what they think is a new method, They mostly want to be noticed. The old teenage angst thing, maybe. I figure they straighten themselves out eventually or not depending on the tools given them by their parents. The two mom's reminded me of the clueless moms of the early 60's that had no idea whet their kids were up to. WE tried out all the "new" drugs, some of the guys I hung out with croaked and some lived and became regular people. Same shit different generation. Either way the population is still growing.

That fucking pissed me off. They don't give you the answers without a goddam ass reaming. Don't post shit like that, there are plenty of fun quizes that don't make you fill everything out and then get pop ups afterwards. I fucking hate emos.

It's wierd how "emo" is actually anti-emotional in so many ways - suffering, solitude, misunderstanding.

 

It feels like the cultural tendency of mis-information manifested

Actually, I never heard the term "emo" before running across this thread. (I don't watch television, and so maybe that's why. For that matter, it was only a couple days ago that I figured out that American Idol is a terrorist organization.)

 

--Have Chrome and Krypto, will travel.
