You see them lurking in chat rooms, making fun of those who like mainstream music. You see them on message boards, shamelessly promoting their favorite indie bands and projecting an elitist attitude toward everyone who doesn't like those bands. You even stumble upon their Livejournals sometimes, and after reading two or three entries, discover that they'd love to have you think that their lives are the most tragic things in existence. Yes, they are emo kids, and their proliferation of the internet is becoming more and more alarming each day; there is nothing we can do to stop the influx. So why not take the easy way out and become one? You'll be respected and even admired among your emo contemoporaries, but only if you follow a certain set of unspoken rules. Break any of them and you'll be called a "poseur" faster than you can come up with a screename that has too many X's. First, let's look at the basics:
The Basics
Follow these guidelines and you'll be well on your way to being the first emo kid on the block:

1. Obtain a pair of black, thick-rimmed eyeglasses. Wear them at all times. Take multiple pictures of yourself wearing them with your webcam, and make sure to tilt them on your nose in a few of the pictures. Look as forlorn and desperate as possible in the pictures. If you know how, apply a few basic Photoshop filters to your images to give them an old, worn-out, decidedly "emo" look.

2. Obtain a Livejournal at all costs. This requires you to get a "code" from a current Livejournal user. If necessary, beg, plead, and offer sexual favors. Once you've secured a code, get someone else to design your journal or steal a design from someone else. When choosing a username, make sure it alludes to self-mutilation and has lots of X's in it.

3. Register an AIM screename. Again, it should optimally allude to self-mutilation and have multiple X's. Some examples: "x hidden scars" or "death x becomes x her." It is also acceptable to use the word "core" liberally in your name, such as "girl x core" or "loser x core." Once you've registered a screename, frequent the AIM chat rooms and talk about how much better your taste in music is than everyone else's. If someone mentions Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes/Desaparecidos, you MUST say "Conor is so hot. He rox my sox. RawR."

4. Sexuality. If you aren't already, you must become bisexual or homosexual. Sorry folks, this rule is not negotiable.

Congratulations! You're well on your way to becoming an emo kid.

This is the biggest part of being an emo kid. In fact, their name derives from the music they listen to - "emo," which once meant "emotional hardcore" or "emotional punk" but has now come to identify bands on the Saddle Creek label. You'll want to pay the most attention to this label, as many of the bands you'll be listening to are on Saddle Creek. For extra points, visit the Saddle Creek website at least once a day and post the link to the "emo game" on every forum you know of.

Let's start with Bright Eyes. 'Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground' is an album that emo kids eat up like Ozzy Osbourne eats chicken heads. If you don't like this album, you are not emo. It's that simple. Other albums to check out by Bright Eyes: 'Fevers & Mirrors', 'letting off the Happiness', and 'There Is No Beginning to the Story'. Get them all for extra points!

Another band worth mentionting is Desaparecidos. This band also features Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. If you say that you like Conor Oberst, but you don't own 'Read Music/Speak Spanish', then you are a liar.

Yet another band on Saddle Creek that you should like is Cursive. Get 'Domestica' and 'Burst & Bloom' and visit a few of their fan websites so you can pretend to know a lot about them!

At the Drive-In is one of the bands that founded modern emo. Get one of their older albums, such as 'El Gran Orgo', and brag that you've been into the emo scene for years. You'll gain instant respect among your emo peers.

Another band that you'll definitely want to check out is Le Tigre. Feminism, protesting, "riot grrrls" - these are all themes prevalent in Le Tigre's music. If you don't like them yet claim to be emo, you are a poseur and will die a slow death. Purchase 'Le Tigre' at your local underground music store run by a pair of lesbian goths. Man, you're so core.

A band you should pay attention to is Deftones. If someone calls them "the Deftones," be sure to scold them and say "It's just 'Deftones,' you poseur." Then proceed to ignore them. For extra points, get 'White Pony [Added Track]' and pretend that you like it. But make sure you stay away from Deftones' first album, 'Adrenaline', at all costs; it involves gritty, hard-rock guitars, screaming, rapping, and short song titles, and we all know how much emo kids hate THAT crap.

Emo kids often dabble in "hardcore" music. This includes bands like From Autumn To Ashes, Poison the Well, Atreyu, etc. Get 'Too Bad You're Beautiful', then grow an unhealthy obsession for studded belts, X's, guns, and mosh pits, and become straight edge, and you can tackle two genres at once by being emo AND hardcore! SCORE!

Some other albums/bands that you'll want to pay attention to:
'( )'
'Turn On the Bright Lights'
'Source Tags & Codes'
'White Blood Cells'
'Full Collapse'
'Danse Macabre'
'The Photo Album'
'13 Songs'

All wild white tigers were a color variation of Bengal tigers. Wild white tigers were very rare, and none have been reported in the wild since the 1950s.

White tigers in zoos are inbred and crossbred mixtures of Bengal and Siberian. They are neither albinos (in which case they would have pink eyes), nor a separate species; they have chocolate stripes and blue eyes, although several variations in eye and stripe color are seen. White tigers are only born to parents that both carry the recessive gene for white coloring.

The first white cub precursor to all the captive white tigers is believed to be one trapped by the Maharaja of Rewa, who found it orphaned in the jungle in 1951. Named Mohan, the cub was later mated to a normal-colored captive tigress who produced three litters with normal coloring. A few years later, Mohan mated with one of the offspring, producing the first litter of white cubs in captivity—these were to be the ancestors of others now in many zoos the world over.

As of June 1998, there were 30 white tigers in U.S. zoos that participate in SSP (species survival plan) programs. No one knows how many more are in private hands.

Uh oh, Hawaii Dave and Jorge. Guess that means we will have to get straight to reproduction...yesss.
