Just For Fun

A Guide To Being "Scene"

One of the few humor sites I read, Drivl.com, has an excellent guide on how to be "scene" that I think our readers can appreciate. And by appreciate, I mean make fun of. Here's a short excerpt:

"First and foremost, your AIM/MSN screen name should be some rad song title and/or lyric. Remember, the more x's you have in it, the more scene you are."

"Next, go buy yourself some girl's jeans. Face it, the tighter your jeans are, the more scene you will be, and the more the hardcore kids will hate you for it. Try on a pair of jeans and find that you're a perfect woman's 2? Buy a woman's 0 and suck it in."

What's Next?

the last two people are the same. Anyways, you can also go to www.yourscenesucks.com It's pretty interesting and you should check out the mailbag to see what a lot of these retards say about the site. I can't stand tight jeans though, they're so annoying and uncomfortable.

Note: notice how well most of them can spell

"The next song goes out to everybody out there who never gave up on the f***in' heavy music, ever. Everybody who ignored all these weak-ass f***ing trends, all these p***y-whipped f***in' ideas, f*** 'em all. Cause you know why? THE TREND IS DEAD!"

"Now that you're back home, go straight for your computer and immediately check your myspace. Get really p***ed off when you don't have any friend requests, and get even more p***ed off when no one has left you a comment in the 6 hours you weren't home."
Ha ha haa! Whoever wrote that knows his/her stuff! Almost everyone in my college does myspace, moshpit hogging and crap fashion. Well said!

BTW, don't forget to pick up a white leather belt on your way out!

Myspace isn't scene technically, it's just full of people who jump from trend to trent.
It's amazing for promotion though, no one can deny that.

This amuses me as much as "131 ways to know you're Mallcore"
