1). Do you listen to emo?

Not in the original sense... I'm more a fan of the evolution it took in the 90s when bands gave it a harder edge (screamo in a nutshell), though I do really enjoy a lot of progressively geared post-emo indie bands.

2). Do you know about emo's origins in Washington, D.C. way back in the 80s?

Embrace and Rites of Spring... all that snazz was boring.

3). How do the war in Iraq and acts of terroist violence make you feel?

A misdirected, ill-advised war, that lost sight of its original intention while STILL managing to raise a whole new generation of USA hating middle-easternites? All I can say is Bush is one of the worst presidents we've ever had.

4). Do you feel safe in the world you live in? Explain why.

Yeah, I live in a middle-class family and attend a major university. It's like my own little bubble to protect myself from all the harsh realities of the world.

5). In a sentence, explain your feelings towards emo culture, postive or negative?

In a sense, the whole feeling of the music was bastardized and exploited beyond belief. I find it hard to believe that so many people think Taking Back Sunday pioneered emo without even looking further back into their influences. Anyone with a brain (except Loser, who is incapable of functioning on any level) realizes that when you compare something like My Chemical Romance to a band like June Paik, you are in completely unrelated genres. I think this more than any "trend" shows how the commercialization of a general misconception within music can create one of the most obscenely ridiculous counter-cultures to date. In short - real emo/screamo = good, poorly dressed morons driven by hairstyles and obnoxious alt-rock music = bad.

6). What's your age/gender/name?

Ben Stivers, male, 19.

1). Do you listen to emo?
Yes.

2). Do you know about emo's origins in Washington, D.C. way back in the 80s?
Yes.

3). How do the war in Iraq and acts of terroist violence make you feel?
I feel the war is unjustified, and has only promoted acts of terrorism against westerners. The terrorists responsible for 9/11 had no relation to Iraq and to even associate the two is ridiculous.

4). Do you feel safe in the world you live in? Explain why.
Yes, I live in a wealthy suburb of Los Angeles and I highly doubt terrorists are coming to blow me up anytime soon.

5). In a sentence, explain your feelings towards emo culture, postive or negative?
I'm very fond of "real" Emo music, but those who call themselves Emo these days are annoying twats who've done nothing but ruin it for everyone.

1). Do you listen to emo?
Yes, it is one of my favorite genres.

2). Do you know about emo's origins in Washington, D.C. way back in the 80s?
Yes. I started out thinking emo was just a fashion trend, but it was only recently that I came to discover the real stuff.

3). How do the war in Iraq and acts of terroist violence make you feel?
I dont like/support violence or war of any kind. It may just sound like an angsty teen answer, but I just despise the idea of war completely.

4). Do you feel safe in the world you live in? Explain why.
It depends. I feel very safe in my home, and in my town. But seeing things on the news and hearing about things going on in the world in other countries makes me feel insecure.

5). In a sentence, explain your feelings towards emo culture, postive or negative?
I dont know much about the emo "culture", to be honest. All I know is that I love the music. For me its always been about self-expression, emotion and having a good time, not about a look or style.

1). Do you listen to emo?
Not as much as I use to, I occasionally put on an emo/screamo album I like but I still listen to post-emo quite a bit.

2). Do you know about emo's origins in Washington, D.C. way back in the 80s?
Yep.

3). How do the war in Iraq and acts of terroist violence make you feel?
Like our government sucks, the war was totally unnecessary.

4). Do you feel safe in the world you live in? Explain why.
Yeah, I don't really know why the world isn't that safe.

5). In a sentence, explain your feelings towards emo culture, postive or negative?
The fake emo stuff like MCR and Hawthorne Heights is stupid and not just damaging to actual emo but music in general because if music is too personal nowadays regardless of the genre its labeled "emo". Actually its pretty damaging to art forms in general.

Yes

3). How do the war in Iraq and acts of terroist violence make you feel?
Mainly it makes me want britain to stand alone and stop blindly supporting america. i listen to emo because i like the music though, not because of the ideals.

4). Do you feel safe in the world you live in? Explain why.
I feel safe in the UK.
