The process of taking photos.
Apparently, if you want to get anywhere in the photo industry, you must only take "vintage" pictures of a skinny girl in converse, flowers, converse, two emo boys kissing, more converse, a self portrait with terrible angles or a decrepit unused building.
Did i forget something? Ahh yes...more converse! Add some stars/hearts and song lyrics by dashboard confessional to really give it some oomph.
Now just put them on your myspace or deviantart and watch the compliments roll in! Now all you have to do is wait for some business moguls to spot your obvious talent and hire you straightaway. Because you so are a 'photographer'.
xXbLaCK_heaRtXx just added some photos onto their deviantart. It's all a bunch of sunsets, dying trees and brand spanking new converse sitting on disused train tracks.
"Ooh, look! Here's one of him lying on the tracks! And he's even put a heart and sparkles in the corner!"
"Soooo deep and artistic!" *nods*
Feel free to copy the following paragraph and put it on as many emo/scene/myspace pages you can find who commit said atrocity:
In real life, turning up the exposure on a portrait so much you barely see the person's features anymore is not advised in photography. Really, you're not supposed to do it. You're not a photographer! Get over it!
Like myspace, but slightly easier to use (for those of us who are terrible when it comes to computers).
May have already dipped to myspace levels for it's overabundance of scenesters (who all preach about how they are individual and not fake), but the chavs are putting up a good fight on their part, i must admit.
Aside from the usual, they have an Authors page where anyone can submit writing they have done. most of it is terrible with no plot and poor grammar (like quizilla), but few are actually really good standard.
You can also make your own quizzes or polls, which for me is hilarious, and you can create widgets. they're like flash pictures which can be edited and whored up with stars and glitter. like photoshop.
Everybody is also free to create their own band pages, even if it's not of a real band. you can find band pages for popular cartoons, towns, characters (mr. krabs for instance), vampire obsessives (which i'm a fan of), horror movies, tim burton, my chemical romance or...Beauty Bands. Yup.
The two main types are the Chav/Trendy/Prep beauty pages, and Scene/TrashyChic/"Imperfect" beauty pages.
The trendy pages usually consist of pouting blondes, the photos taken in low level lighting and usually in the latest gear from new look, select or dorothy perkins. or bikinis/underwear, foundation. sometimes taken in the bathroom, which cracks me up a little.
The Scene pages prattle on about they will accept everybody, because "everyone is beautiful in their own way", though they sometimes have "guidlines" such as:
* have amazing, unique hair
* cool poses
* not fake
* NO POSERS PLEASE! WE WANT REAL BEAUTY
But most of the photos tend to be scene whores in garish make-up, hair that looked like it got attacked by a hair-dye-wielding electric toaster in the bath, hello kitty, clips/bows, mind boggling angles, the photos taken in low level lighting and usually in the latest gear from hot topic or some undergound alternative shop. or underwear, foundation. nearly always taken in the bathroom, which cracks me up a lot, especially when you spy a funny patterned towel or loo roll in the background.
All the "fans" of that band page would then proceed to gush over how hawt or shmexxy their hair/makeup/clothes/belt is while the ocassional sane person tells them that they are all in fact fake, attention-seeking losers. the scenesters then turn on the poor soul and batter them. not physically of course. they wouldn't want to ruin their make-up.
bebo is a lot like evesham, where i live. it may be a cesspit, but i do love it. it's got a certain charm.
i myself have a bebo. my page consists of video clips (family guy is very popular), music, photos and band pages which i am a fan of. my friends list consists of people from school, college, and those i met online. there is a page for my old highschool, which i am not a member of because my schooldays were shite and my screen name is a line i got from QI.
a strange phenomenom that involves taking a photo of oneself in the mirror with a camera.
mostly found on any self respecting myspace.
someone needs to teach them how to use the self timer button
Unsuspecting individual logs on into myspace and clicks onto a random profile...
OMG lyke new picz!!! Comment pls ppl!!! kkthnx </3
Sees a whole page of mirror pics
an overused word, where it has a different meaning wherever you go. According to someone i know, greebo is another word to describe a punk up north.
Or if you happen to live in the evesham area, anyone that doesn't tuck their trouser bottoms into their socks ¬_¬ i got called it recently, i don't necessarily agree but neither do i disagree with them. I'm just a general music lover that favours a particular style of dress, and i just so happened to be wearing my beloved tramp hat at the time (that may have had something to do with it). maayybee
I agree with whoever posted the definition about how anyone in their 30's now was really a true "greebo" though, they got it right there
me: *strolls down the street*
random: hey, look at that girl wearing nothing but black and grey, chains and a stupid hat, she must be trying to be rebellious and different!
me: err...you talking about me?
random: greeeebo! grubby greeebo
me: what? i'm not
random: then what are you?
me: i am a person whose just walking down the road
random: but but you gotta be a greebo! just look at the dark colours, baggy clothes, wooly hat, chains...you have long hair!
me: yes...yes i do have long hair
random: you probably listen to korn
me: yeah and? for your information, i was just listening to ministry of sound five minutes ago
*gasps all round*
me: yeah that's right! i listen to dance! i also like drum n base, and britney spears as well as gizmachi, korn, cob and enslaved!
random: what...somethings wrong...my small fragile and shallow view of the universe is crashing down before my very eyes!
*a vortex appears, and the random is sucked into it*
becky: gee ellie, that's the fifth vortex this you've accidentally created this week, you oughtta stop scaring people like that
me: accidentally? er yeah...accidentally *shifty eyes*
becky: oh well, wanna get a coffee?
