An emo kid is an individual who listens to music that really is emotive and is actually proper music ie not pop or dance crap. We dont cry all the time, we cry inside because this world is an awful place and we dont fit in. We wear baggies, band tshirts or a tshirt over a sweater, converse basketball boots (odd pairs)and messenger bags. We dont all have to wear it, we can wear what we want because we dont care. We often get called posers- ok u call us that but the only thing we pose is real emotion. Oh and we can be happy, i'm smiling now.

and that’s exactly how I’ll make it seem

8 Mile Rd is one of a series of roads (there is also a 7 Mile, 9 Mile, 12 Mile, and so on) named for its distance from the center of Detroit. It is generally considered the dividing line between the haves and the have-nots, though this distinction has diminished significantly in the past few years. It does NOT separate the "black half" and "white half" of Metro Detroit. These so-called halves don't exist. The area is not segregated and never was.

8 Mile was recently put into the national spotlight after a movie of the same name starring rapper Eminem was filmed in the area. The film received good reviews and Eminem went on to receive an Oscar for Best Song.

However, it's worth pointing out that Eminem's character, "B-Rabbit" did NOT live on the bad half of 8 Mile. The whole damn point of the movie was that he lived in the "wrong" area and was of the "wrong" race, but still managed to gain respect from his peers.

Eminem, in reality, grew up in Warren, a lower-middle class suburb about 20 miles from Detroit.
8 Mile Rd is a lot nicer than it used to be.

8 Mile starred Eminem and sickly-looking Brittany Murphy.

A truly unique cross-section of suburban life, where even historical monuments have homosexual undertones (ie the cannon on Main St.). Every gay man you will ever meet has spent a weekend there at a Bed & Breakfast, eaten at Marsha Brown's, gone on a horse-drawn carriage ride, and spent an evening at The Cartwheel.

People who grow up there find themselves totally clueless about what the real world is like, because of New Hope's complete isolation from the real world. The sprawling housing developments cover every inch of free space and former forest, and it is impossible to go thirty feet without seeing a shopping mall. SUVs crowd the school pick-up area, where stay-at-home moms wait for their spoiled, oversexualized, burnt out children. There is no culture, there is no identity, there is only the tourists.
Also referred to by some as "No Hope".
"I'm so bored."

"Man, I can't wait to get out of New Hope. There's nothing to do except drive, smoke pot, and sit on benches sneering at tourists."
