The Atari belt buckle reminds me more of a codpiece. I wonder if codpieces will become fashionable again too...

I would imagine these emo kids putting in the contra code then suddenly bust out with some hardcore dancing only to see their precious control break on them losing their 30 extra lives. No spread shot for you buddy.

Which makes me rant about some of the new emo kids today hanging around my work, just really annoying.

I mean really, I listen to emo music [so bash me]. BUT I hate the scene so much its so ridiculously annoying. The whole I'm more hardcorer than you, I listen to such and such. I'll admit I was the same way but then when I heard myself talk it just totally put things in perspective and think what in the world is my problem.

I'm really just in it for the beat, if it sounds good then great! But the scene, the whole emo by design thing, the ideals, pretty much everything is just ridiculous.

Cheer up, Emo kid.

Heh heh. Yeah, I thought the same thing about the Atari controller. And unfortunately, I think JJJ's right... Emo kids will latch onto the NES buckles and ruin it for anyone else. I'm sure they wouldn't really bother with SNES or Genesis, but why get those when you could have gotten the NES one?

I'm glad I got out of highschool before emo started. This one chick I know through a friend is an emo/stoner and she's such a mess.

And yeah isn't it time for old videogames to not be trendy anymore and something else take their place? Aren't most of these kids too young to even be nostolgic about Nintendo?

I didn't want to make this post, but I felt compelled.

Maybe it's the area I live in being tragically unhip to all trends Costal and newer, but does this thing really exist? As far as my base of knowledge goes, "emo" has existed since Rivers Cuomo wore thick glasses and sang about Buddy Holly over a decade ago. It's just now catching on? As I knew it, emo was a look but never a trend.

I'm not emo in the least, as if posting on this message board doesn't imply it, and I'm not trying to defend it but I can't help but feel the internet is somehow forcing this concept as a trend from my perspective. Do I just have to go back to a Highschool and I'll see it? I'm constantly seeing internet people confusing emo with goth or more hardcore punks or even angstbag teenagers who think Papa Roach is the new Emily Dickinson. So it's really a trend, now?

To anyone still of Highschool age, it would be difficult for them to grasp the proper retro effect of these buckles, post-NES. More likely, the Genesis was their Genesis of gaming.

Emo is like if Indie and Goth had a kid, but it was a miscarriage and somehow survived. At first glance Emo is indie, but upon closer inspection it involves more crying and self aggrandizing and less actual effort into a creative art.

Personally I consider some what emo to have some what music involved, but Radish certaintly hit the head on what Emo is with its indie goth gary coleman love child physics. Really screaming lyrics about their girlfriend cheating on them and they cant do anything bout it so they cry alot or make songs pertaining to violence but look no where near a sociopath. I suppose you could say its the "cool" dorky people who still don't have confidence in their selves.

Maybe your right though, everyone is starting to pick it up more as a trend saying with things as the buddy holly glasses and all but thats one of many things.

Though I suppose it used to be about the music with groups of kids saying I'm more hardcorer than you cause I listen to a band you've never heard of or Im more emo than you are because I'm in the hardcore dance circle and you aren't, I listen to hot cross but you listen to Saosin I'm so more emo!! Yet with how things are with the younger kids, I think they see it as a trend as well.

I don't know how to call them, but the group of emo-goth-visual kei-clowns-punks-transvestites that was at a party I was yesterday sure entertained the group of friends I was with.
