lame on lame violence
so according to this enlightening article from the sydney morning herald (slow news day, australia?) scene kids and emo kids are two different species of bored white suburban kids with way too much time and disposable income on their hands. they also hate each other and enjoy watching people stare at them. it's no wonder people are staring, my 5 year old niece dresses up to play princess and doesn't look NEARLY as ridiculous as these 13 year olds do on a daily basis. so far this misunderstanding about subcultures has not escalated to violence like the punk-emo wars in mexico but one can only hope...
who's to blame for this mess? clearly the internet, or more specifically this wiki-how-to article. and since when is the word "niggz" scene lingo? last i checked that was more than vaguely racist. either i'm old and out of touch or people are really dumb.
