How To Be: Emo is an internet short created in 2004 by director Christian Bretz. Filmed in the style of a 1950's informational short, it features a teen named Billy (played by Trent Teigan) and his quest to become emo. Guided by a disembodied voice in the form of a narrator, Billy learns about emo culture, fashion, music, discrimination, and other important aspects of emo life. How To Be: Emo pokes fun at many different subcultures in addition to emo, including jocks, wiggers, and preps. One of the greatest additions to 2000's emo culture since emogame.

How To Be: Emo was perfectly good as a 21 minute black-and-white short. It does NOT need to be made into a full-length movie.
The Emo Diaries are a sequence of ten albums released by Deep Elm records. While they were originally meant to be called the "emotional diaries", this was found to be too long to fit on the CD cover and was thus shortened. Possibly the origin of the word "emo" as it is known today.
The Emo Diaries showcase a lot of great bands, including Samiam, Jejune, Jimmy Eat World, Further Seems Forever, Movielife, Desert City Soundtrack, Planes Mistaken For Stars, The Appleseed Cast, Pop Unknown, etc.
Guitar-playing singer songwriter similar to Chris Carabba, but with about a 1000% increase in pussiness (yeah, I didn't think it was possible either)
