OK, if you haven't noticed the I Screamo No Emo pool on Flickr, I highly recommend a look. It's both hilarious, and faintly disturbing. It seems to have been a challenge that was set a while ago for people to do a week of 'I Screamo No Emo' self-portraits. And here were the rules:
THERE MUST BE NO:
1. looking at feet or the ground
2. being thoughtful
3. looking "cute"
4. cropped heads
5. tidying up your picture-taking space
6. trying hard to fit the "myspace profile picture" guidelines.
7. pigeon toes (we're talkin' faux-toes, not the real kind).
8. jazz hands
And this is where the disturbing part comes in, as I started thinking about the pictures I have taken of myself when showing off my various creations. Let's take a little walk down memory lane...
Oh boy, not off to a good start are we? Cutesy, thoughtful AND looking at the ground. EEEEKKK!
Hhhhmmmm, and here we have some pigeon toes....Kinda cutesy shot too.
Looking thoughtful here.... There's also a bit of head-cropping going on.
But most disturbing of all...
Looking at feet, looking thoughtful, pigeon toes...and gloomy grey/purples tones to boot. I actually made an Emo collage!
OH MY GOD, I AM REALLY AN EMO!!!!!!!!!
OK, just to clarify - I really don't have anything against Emos. In fact, I went through my own little Goth period at Uni (yes, when Emos were still just goths...am I showing my age?). But hey, I'm a 35 year old mum. I can't be an Emo!!!!
So to show off my latest creations in a NON-EMO way. Here ya go!
Can you tell I'm crying on the inside...just a little bit...hehehe.
