Emu's Not Unix?

I Must Be Emo - News Report

This is so awesome. Especially the part where the redneck cop says,
"it's not what you'd call gothic... there's no boots, no chains..."

Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.

  1. And even BETTER is his interpretation of the hairstyle, "The point of that is to only see the world in half-view"!!!

    L-L-L-L-L-LOL! Lovely.

    We're still gathering the evidence we need to arrest these kids for sense crimes.

    Sheriff Cletus done set me straight. No more cutting my wrists to earn Emo points on my Myspace Quizilla webblog.

    It's amazing how clearly and easily the residents of Eddy County, North Dakota just cut right through all that Big Market New York media chaffe. Emo, Myspace, Wrist Cutting, Teen Suicide, all related, all bad.

    I look forward to the 14 Youtube parodies created before tomorrow morning.

    I am completely unable to watch this through. It is painful, my brain seizes up and I have to avert my attention.

    Much like when I hear Dear Leader speak.

    Emo, from the people who just couldn't dress like goths.

    I'm glad some things are timeless. Just like Parents Against Punkers back in the day...

    was that the Sheriff's daughter being interviewed ya think?

  7. ammonoid says:

    That kind of sucked. No references to devil worship, goth club promotors, ritual suicide or records being played backward. The news media is failing at being hysterical, even.

    Two things about this that I love:

    These guys were completely unable to distinguish between stuff actually created by emos and stuff created to take the piss out of emos. The report mostly consisting of the latter presented as if it was the former.

    LOL Old people, I guess.

    Secondly, I can't help but be amused at the appalling microphone technique in the voiceover bits.

    These guys seem to be doing a real rush job with their sloppy research and going with the first voiceover track that's even vaguely listenable.

    PS: You guys are aware that this news report is a work of pure evil, right? I mean, we're coming out to bat for emos, for fuck's sake!

    Obviously the radiation from all of those missile silos in North Dakota hasn't provided a positive mutation there yet.

    I'm now convinced that after a nuclear holocaust, only cockroaches and Midwestern Bubbas would survive the fallout.

    I think it's funny that you think that cop is "redneck".

  11. smokedamage says:

    1) at least the cop looks like he is trying hard, all points to him.

    2) what the fuck?

    3) I fail to see this being a huge problem, i like to call it "thinning the gene pool". And some people don't believe in evolution....

    • macabre_grrl says:

      How convenient that parents routinely forget that all teenager generations form bizarre tribes. ALL of them. And they mostly survive. This amazes me more than the crazy shit that the kids these days are doing.

  12. lars_larsen says:

    "And you hit the jackpot if you attempt suicide"

    There are still people who live in north-fucking-dakota who HAVEN'T attempted suicide yet? Two weeks there and I'd be sucking on a tailpipe.

    I did like the piece of YouTube, on TV, on YouTube

  14. redleaf8 says:

    Wow. I just Googled WDAZ to see where it is (North Dakota), and it's Wikipedia article has a section devoted to this one story. Nuts.


    Ayy, the interweb is grand. Don't ya know.
