I now like you and am willing to overlook your collection of ridiculous pants.

So the emo look, I'd say, would be a '90s thing. I think I'll go bury my head in new found glory and MxPx now.
And the Johnny Marr talk is great. Smiths were great because of him, and him alone. Morrissey is so horrid without him.

don't forget Andy Rourke

Looks good. I like this more than the last one w/ the jeans, although the red is a bit bold.. perhaps you saturated the image after the fact? I have to do that too w/ my shit camera

Okay: now this is very emo, and it is happening in real time.

I think Dennis Miller said the same thing on Monday Night Football.

funny... I always thought emo grew out of goth... which was certainly going strong in the 80s.

It wasn't called 'emo' then though - in fact, most people who were in bands now claimed by emo kids as antecedants in the USA would have called what they were doing 'hardcore' or even straight 'punk'. The UK bands quoted here like The Smiths are not remotely 'emo'. They were part of the 'indie' scene, and in some ways are classic British pop in a line that comes down through The Kinks and XTC and so on...

Wherever it's from, it's not nice, and it doesn't seem to be enjoying a good relationship with the trousers. Then, finally, beige plus salmon pink shirt only adds to a rather quesy feeling I get from the whole fit. Sorry, furo - it's really not working at all.

Nice fit on the jacket.

Meh, I'm ok with the jacket. When you realize its probably a Banana Republic disaster, it puts it all in context. The shirt, on the other hand, is just wrong.

Yech, The Beatles were never my thing. This makes me a bad music critic, perhaps. I respect them, they just never did it for me. I'd say Morrissey > Lennon/McCartney (as songwriters) and Marr > them all (as guitar players), but that's sancrosanct, right?

This is what makes you a bad music critic. Anyone that rights a song called You're the one for me Fatty should be shot out of a cannon.
