I’m in desperate need of someone to explain to me internet culture and Maple.
I’m obviously missing something because I’m not sure how many times I’m supposed to laugh at pies, cookies, muffins, tacos, Chuck Norris or find “hawt”ness to be ironic. Maybe I’m a hypocrite but I’m not sure why people make the same jokes over and over and never get tired of it.
The way people behave on Maple is really getting to me. I don’t know why every single girl thinks it’s cute to act like what we would call in real life skanky. It’s so unclassy. Girls play the “I’m so cute!” thing to the point where it’s just disgusting. I swear if I see any more “o.o” or “:3” or “O.O” or any more attention hoaring tactactics I’m going to quit Maple for good.
Well, actually, I’m taking a mental break from Maple. I’ll be online but I won’t be there. I’m not sure when I’m going to play again. I just have one last message to all the “I’m so cute” attention hoars out there: Cut the crap. It’s not cute, no one cares, and to be honest if you’re 15+ and still pulling that crap, you must be SEVERELY repressed in real life or just… so sad to the point that you gotta do this every two seconds: “o.o *huggies*” or “*:3 *kisses*”
If you can’t see how pathetically slutty that seems, I don’t know what to tell you. Everything revolving around Maple is becoming trite.
If you’re still laughing at overused internet jokes like the words pie, cookie, cake, nachos, bananas, tacos, muffin, any wapanese or japanophile phrases and or actions marked with “-” or “*” (i.e. *falls over in a face plant* or *big sparkley eyes* KAWAII!) (people the Japanese are superior to no one, we’re all as good as each other get over it and despite what Gwen Stefani thinks Asians are NOT novelties and accessories, I don’t even want to know how much she paid for that fobtastic posse), any assortment of random animals who are stuck into the joke but have no purpose being in it, etc.
Use of the word “emo”. Recently, I’ve gotten into more than one argument about the definition of “emo”. Most of those being that it was “a wimpy version of goth rock”. Goths didn’t exist past the 90s. Emo isn’t the same as power pop and pop rock. Anything to do with darkness, depression, crappy bands and really feminine men is irrelevant in emo. The definition of third wave emo does no justice to the horrible culture brought upon by the “emo-core” scene. It does no justice to the original D.C. hardcore roots. People are too quick to believe the internet, MTV and myspace.
People are too eager to call something (even if it is as horrible as 3rd wave “emo” or as I call it “powerpop" “gey”. Sure emo has to do with emotions, it really had to do with anger, not sadness, not crying. And since I’m pretty much bored of talking about this, the following are power pop, post-hardcore, pop-rock or general rock: My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, P! ATD, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, and any other band with side bangs, striped hoodies, skinny pants and ovaries that happens to play sappy music without an ounce of hardcore.
I’m sure most of you wonder why I have to be so pretentious about this.
It’s not to look like I’m into more obscure stuff, it’s not to look like I’m “scene”-er than thou. More or less it’s because people overuse the word negatively. People have a choice in how they act, but acting in shallow, selfish reasons and tagging on the word “emo” pretty much makes everyone look bad. Peope have the ability and the right to make their own decisions when presenting their personality. It’s just a shame that emo has to be associated with such an immature, shallow and extremely hypocritical scene. As soon as people can start acting how they want to and not just to fit into a made-to-sell “sub-culture”, I’ll stop ranting about the same freakin’ thing.
Feel free to argue since I pretty much insulted or pointed out most people on the internet.
I’m just extremely curious as to how people could LOVE “randomness”… Yet, what’s so random about the same 5 things repeated over and over?
(btw, if anyone knows more than 3 real emo or indie bands, I’ll sooooo buddy them and give them my mesos when I quit for good which will probably be soon).
