Elmo music is the archetype of which emo music started.
It started off when elmo sang the ABC song, a highly musical and emotional form of the song that we all know, and were taught, in kindergarten.
Elmo's actual name is Thomas O'Callaghan, an immigrant from Ireland, he started out as a highly disturbed child growing up on the lonely streets of ireland, he was ridiculed by the kids, daily. He never knew his parents. It was documented that Callaghan got into many knife fights, and was often put in jail for his rough conduct. After a year of misconduct, he was adopted by a man by the name of Joan Ganz Cooney, otherwise known as the infamous creator of Sesame Street.
As a young boy he was afflicted from a rare and horrible condition called El Cabello Rojo, translated literally, means the Red hair in spanish.
Elmo was afflicted with another rare disease where his scrotum did not grow properly, hence his high toned voice. Despite these setbacks, elmo took a career into singing with the help of Joan Ganz Cooney who took him under his wing, and gave him financial support.
Elmo enjoyed a long and prosperous career and became a worldwide known singer. His albums topped the charts at regular intervals, one of his greatest songs, "Baby, the ABC's arent good enough for me" was Number 1 in 1972 for 3 months.
Sesame street was his best career he ever undertook, with such classics as, "The ABC song" and "How to tie your shoe"
Elmo is still very alive today, although retired from sesame street, he is an active member of the NRA and donates regularly to the give.org foundation, he once stated in a Denver Colorado convention "We cannot, we must not, turn to violence, a gentleman must allow his words to do his fighting. But whenever my family is in danger, and when there is no other alternative, I know that my Desert Eagle 50 Action Express will serve me best."
Indeed, elmo music did inspire emo music, as it inspires me, and you, to do our best, through singing, and overcoming obstacles.

A nice site with plenty of good flash movies on there (Sprite flashes are my favorite) however, there are tons and tons of freaking porn ads on there that takes away a lot of my respect for the site, not to mention they allow a LOT of dirty flash movies to be on there, which is a minus in my book.
One of my main problems with NG, is that there are too MANY biased immature users, as in I go to review a movie (Foamy
comes to mind, I personally think its devoid of anything funny, and one of the worst movies on NG) I leave my review, I keep it honest, and try to be as nice as I can, and I get bombarded with negatives on "Did you find this review helpful"
Geez, its as if people sit there all day and flag review entries with negatives.
Other than those crucial downfalls of the site, I think its a really enjoyable time-waster.
Something that I personally hate, lots of lies are caused from politics. Cause for a lot of strife among people, especially on the internet.
There are good moral politicians out there who are upstanding, but are rare.
Republicans say that their side is the best.
Democrats say that their side is the best.
Et cetera et cetera.
A short sword used by the Romans. They liked the hispanic design of swords so much that they adopted it and increased on the design.
The roman gladius was used mainly for stabbing, as their short profile allowed them to glide quickly through the air and penetrate through armor.
There are four known types of gladius's,
Hispaniesis, Mainz, Fulham, Pompeii.
A breakoff design of the mainz type gladius is called the Mainz-Reingonheim.
One of the most ate up movies I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. It was a great movie, however.

Wonderful devices built for consumption.
Some kid tried to make me eat a crayon when I was in like 3rd grade. I knew better than that, so I went and drank some gasoline! :)
Very good band. Not the best band out there, but still one of the better ones.
