Post Emo Survey - Calling all Lovers/Haters to speak up

Hi there music fans

I'm doing a reasearch paper on emo culture and social awareness and could really use some decent feedback from people actively involved in the scene.

So, I've got a little set of questions for you to help me with my dissertation.

The premise is "people are attracted to emo through a heightened sense of danger in society"

Here we go:

1). Do you listen to emo?

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

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

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

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

6). What's your age/gender/name? (for quotation purposes only)


Feel free to write as much or as little as you like.

Thank you in advance for your help

Kind Regards
Ric Lean

Yes

Yes

Not sure what this has to do anything but I don't support death.

Yes

Positive. There are so many kids losing money to go on tour, doing basement shows, putting out cdrs. How could a place where sleeping at strangers' houses on tour and 7" splits are common place be anything less than great.

Doesn't alter the music I listen to in the least. In fact, how would someone listening to Off Minor be at all related to any war? Maybe bands like Yaphet Kotto or Aghast with an active political attitude, but otherwise not related at all.

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

5). In a sentence, explain your feelings towards emo culture, postive or negative?
It's been raped by mainstream culture namely people like Loser who call it a lifestyle to cover up the fact that they're a pussy. It's a genre of music.

6). What's your age/gender/name? (for quotation purposes only)

19/male/will

Feel free to write as much or as little as you like.

All the best.

1). Do you listen to emo?

yes

yes

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

terrorism is something you get used to in a third world country, and so far, i think the United States has a lot to learn from countries where acts of terrorism occur more often.

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

i'm only as safe as i want to be, where i want to be.

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

it's sideways an insult to hardcore, seeing all these kids with the hair and the pants and the tight shirts who know nothing about emo before the 2000s rolled in and how it's all related to hardcore.

6). What's your age/gender/name? (for quotation purposes only)

1 Yes.

2 Yes.

3 I have the opinions of an intelligent person.

4 Not really, depends on the definition of safe.

5 The label emo has become retarded, I look foreword to the day that it becomes extinct amongst the masses.
