|213.||the EMO Movement|
Beginning in 2002 and reaching its height in 2004, the EMO Movement was a trend, a feeling, a fashion statement, a music genre, and a lifestyle.more...
A time when black hair and very tight pants became the look of choice. Any person, mostly teens in high school, who wanted to be immediately stereotyped as being EMO would simply have to have short, spiked hair in the back and long bangs covering at least half of their face. The hair would then have to be died a dull shade of black with, possibly, some obscure color thrown in. Before jean companies started making boys pants to be tight fitting; EMO persons, if male, would wear girl pants. Band t-shirts, 2 sizes too small, were a must during this time. Shoelaces or pieces of leather tied around the wrist and/or concert bracelets became the popular accessory along with a long/skinny scarf and thick, black rimmed glasses.
During the EMO Movement, music was a big part of its popularity. The band forever credited with starting the musical EMO Movement would be Taking Back Sunday. If t-shirts sporting sheep, sharks & pirates, or other absurd graphics were spotted on a teen during this time, you can also credit them with being apart of this movement because it was more than likely a Taking Back Sunday t-shirt they were wearing. Adam Lazzara highly contributed to the EMO fashion statement. Other bands apart of this include: Thursday, The Used, Thrice, or Bright Eyes.
The 'cool' thing during the EMO Movement was to be hyper-sensit...
One who thrives amidst chaos or ruins; a slumlord, vulture.
DJ Danger Mouse, cutting and pasting long-forgotten and obscure songs, has become a shambledandy within the music industry.
1) A Disc Jockey with a very large collection of records (crates of vinyl)
2) A type of music that uses large numbers of obscure samples and breaks from old recordings.
DJ Shadow's album Endtroducing was made in true cratedigger style.
|216.||death cab for cutie|
has been defined as indie pop but id liken them more towards indie rock as there is just as much focus on the music than on the vocals. A great band with a great following of fans, which, unfortunately for our misguided friend who said there was 12, stretch a long way into south america, europe and some highly obscure nations. Has a very strong following in places like brazil and spain.
the guy who said they were emo then posted lots of lyrics which proved him immediately wrong. Emo as a music genre is about writing music about how hard and bad life is, generally termed 'whinger music' or 'bitch rock.' DCFC is, essentially, a celebration of the beauties of life, held together by fantastic melodies that thrust it directly into the 'indie' genre; if your so image-obsessed so as to start making allegiances, please dont take DCFC! just appreciate it as what it is - indie rock. and fantastic indie rock at that.
No, death cab for cutie fans DONT care that you prefer death metal. Listen to it if you like it, idiot.
An indie youth subculture whose followers combine obscure taste in music, films, and books with fashion-savvy and often flamboyant style in clothing (see glam). Flambohips are also part of the minuscule percentage of hipsters who eventually get over themselves and learn to be friendly.
Guy 1: What do you think of this hot pink Cat Power shirt?
Guy 2: Dude, that's so flambohip!
Flambohip: Hey, great jacket! Is that Urban Outfitters?
Hipster: Shut up.
