When something really stands out.
You couldn't miss it. It stood out like dogs bollocks!
one who is unique and beautiful both inside and out; a bright-shining and/or lovely thing to behold
Amidst the sea of faces, one stood out- that of the superstar destined for greatness not because of some strange alignment of the stars, but because of all that made him who he was.
|10.||karma payment plan|
A system by which seemingly magical improvements in one's life are given by mysterious forces in exchange for a sense of unease not unlike that given from selling one's soul, often actually (but not always) resulting in misfortune.
Taken from the Modest Mouse song "Karma's Payment" and the unfailingly portentious cynicism of Isaac Brock.
"Remember that huge freaking electrical storm we had a couple weeks back? I stood out in the middle of it on the roof of like this chicken coop and held a metal guitar above my head. I didn't get struck by lightning, but I suppose that's just because God has something special, something much, much worse that he's saving for me."
My car broke down out in the street
The radiator sprung a leak
I met this guy, he said he could help me
(I'm on the karma payment plan)
We went to his house and did some speed
He said karma would pay for this deed
He got it fixed and he
Started to scare me...
I ditched him eventually
And came back for the van
The next morning
(I'm on the karma payment plan)
I went to LA the next day I got
Jacked in a really bad way
I can't tell you...
It's a long story.
To make a fool out of someone, or take advantage of them, so that they feel embarrassed or shamed as if they had been lashed by a whip.
We're going to totally lash out Steven by hiding his car keys in the cat's dinner.
Ashley got so lashed out when he stood near that big puddle while the bus drove past.
You got lashed!!
Not showing up to a meeting.
Breaking plans at the last minute.
What the person who stood you up did.
We were all suppose to go to the beach but Joe wanged out at the last min.
Beliefs ushered in through the lyrics and then-beliefs of Ian Mackaye (Teen Idles, Minor Threat era). Although he exclaims fervently that he did not mean to start a movement, and defended himself in the second version of "Out of Step", it did spark a movement.
No promiscuous sex
Atheism - idea of "think don't pray"
Veganism / Vegetarianism
Exemption from Painkillers, Caffine etc.
xXx - supposedly for each of the main beliefs
sXe - straight edge abbreviation
X on the hands - typically seen at shows
x *lame screename* x - seen in every aim window
Types of Edge Kids:
1) The one who knows straight edge is a personal lifestyle and keeps his beliefs to himself
2) Pseudo edge kid, who puts x's on his hands at every show, goes vegan, and sells out the following month
3) Hardline kid - tries to force edge on others, just a meathead who has no idea of the positive nature straight edge is supposed to be
Chain of Strength
"I was reliving all those times we shared, and it's hard,
because you used to be so strong but time has changed you.
You turned away.
I keep trying to escape from the past.
But those days used to mean so much.
We stood side by side and nothing else mattered.
We were straight edge and at least I still am."
