1.
Something you say after you fuck up. This way, people will think you have actually succeeded when in fact you have failed so miserably your former supporters have crossed over.
Mission Accomplished in Iraq, eh?

2.
impossibly good-looking emokid. He is known most commonly as the frontman for Bright Eyes, but he has also fronted his later project Desaparecidos.

This guy is a genius, often tagged as a wunderkind (he started recording at 14) and channels his emotions into powerful lyrics emokidettes can relate to.

Actually, he is still sorta a kid. I went to a show of his when he was way younger and he was so tiny and kid-like it shocked me. I haven't seen him recently (he's gone too mainstream for my wallet) so hopefully he had finally hit puberty and start growing up.

If you like Bright Eyes, you will love Cursive, front by a member of Conor's former band Commander Venus Tim Kasher. Similar music, except I prefer Cursive
One thing that sets Conor apart from other musicians is his amazing voice. His voice wavers when he sings. It reconnects people to memories of crying and painful emotions and whatnot so after a few painful notes, you will be real fucking depressed. Go to one of his shows and you can feel the depression rolling off the crowd. No moshing here, kiddos, just crying.

5.
Orwellion concept.

A crime that you are guilty of because you are THINKING of doing something bad. (i.e. In 1984's Oceania, spending time alone is almost a crime because it's considered odd, and odd people are a threat to a stable environment such as theirs.)

also, see patriot act. (i.e. when you check anarchist cookbook out from the library or something, the gov might have the right to go into your home and tap your phone and computer. And it's all perfectly legal since you might be a terrorist.)
like I said, patriot act.

if i say this is an emo band, a lot of people will be turned off, but really it's allll fucking emo.

Tim Kasher is brilliant though, and they make great music. I have The Ugly Organ and Domestica and they are definitely some of my favorite CDs.

Tim Kasher used to be in a band with another person who is one of my favorites: Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. They used to be in Commander Venus or something. They're good friends. If you like Cursive, you might like Bright Eyes.
What's special about Cursive is that they have a celloist in their band. It's odd, but the cello adds a fantastic texture to the whole thing.

Tim Kasher's voice brims with emotions when he sings. I love that guy. BUt the time I went to see him for the Plea for Peace Tour, he was drunk as fuck and got the songs and lyrics mixed up. BUt he's great. Listen to him
