so i've had the domain yourscenesucks.com for almost 3 years now. i actually have some time on my hands and want to finally put it to use.

it is going to basically be "how to dress emo 3.0 ultra fighting hyper edition deluxe" for those of you who haven't seen the original site check this... http://www.dobi.nu/emo/ (http://www.dobi.nu/emo)

i've narrowed this list down down from about 35 possible scene type people and want to get it down to around 15, just profiling the most ridiculous of the bunch and make them totally over the top.

if there are any you think i'm missing please let me know, certain things kinda crossover but i'll try to differentiate them from one another.

generic emo / typical scenester male
generic emo / typical scenester female
tough guy hardcore
glam metal
metalcore
death metal
christcore
pretentious indie
pop punk elitist
crust punk
screamo kid
prog rocker
straight edge
girl with regrets (tattoos / piercings)
aiden goth kid
williamsberg hipster
aspiring designer / photographer
fashioncore guy
gender confused myspacer (jeffree star type stuff)

the girl with piercings may be a tricky one to do. you could also do bike punks, they're always fun.

Well these are probably a dying breed nowadays buy you could always go for:

Oi!/skinhead
3rd wave ska kid
whatever you call psychobilly fans
I assume there's some sort of filthy hippy punks out there who listen to Plan-it-X stuff... Justin could fill you in.

None of those are exactly that trendy nowadays if that's your criteria... maybe the last one.

Oh god, you have to do the 3rd wave ska kid. Just make it into a weekly feature, each week premiering a new type.

yeah i'm just going for ridiculous over the top stuff, i had a ska kid and was planning on just putting a casket instead of a person, i still might.

the oi / skinhead thing doesn't really fit in this whole scene of thing, most kids don't even know who skrewdriver is.

same w/ psychobilly, not really trendy enough (i already drew a batch of them for another project anyway)

So where does everyone here fall into?

I guess I'm kinda just a standard music snob.

Also drunk hippies with gardening tools.

Man, I'll be laughing one day when Lil Wayne is held in the same regard as Jay-Z, 50, Talib, and Mos. He's not a cash money blinger(even if it still has some elemnts of that, the beats however are entirely different).

This is my best friend... she even has the cliche "I only have four MySpace pictures" thing going on. To her credit, though, they do all involve her eating.

50 is not in the same regard, even same fucking universe as those guys. 50 Cent is a talentless clown, and the only guys who even come close to being as talentless as he is are P Diddy and Master P.

metalcore and fashioncore can pretty much be lumped in the same category.

True, I don't know why I put him up there actually. I guess cause he does sell records, Lil Wayne could do that if he didn't want to actually be an artist with integrity.

"crossover whatever, mainstream no!"
