according to some people i know, im a "poser metalhead" because my parents wont let me grow my hair and im too poor to afford concert tees, even though my music is my life and i love metal. is this fair?
(just to clarify, a poser metalhead is someone who dresses like a metalhead but knows nothing about metal)

Erm, ignore them. Seems me that they are posers, as they are focusing on the image aspect, rather than the music which you love so much. In fact, you are the opposite of a poser, good on you

I'm assuming the title of your thread refers to your paragraph as a whole.

No, it doesn't make sense.

This!

The pit care though, sometimes.

I'd also like to state that my mental approach to being at ease with myself and my representations to other peoples interpretations and perceptions is a very shallow pool of lack luster care.

Your screen name is "random_emo_kill". Sounds pretty metal poseurly to me. You've gotta be a true BAMF (read: Adam D.) to get away with shitting on emos for lulz.

tell them they're the posers, unless they have the entire Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis' discography.

I have short hair, no band tees and I listen to some of the heaviest metal out there. It's not about how you look, it's about what you listen to and love. **** them, if they think otherwise, they're probly posers themselves.

Call them scene kids since that's what they are for caring about image so much.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag





#32
Nope unless you have long hair and a ton of concert tees you can't be a metalhead no matter how much music you listen to.

no one gives a ****.. when people follow fashion to a Tee, and everyone looks the same, it looks ****.

I went to an Enter Shikari gig, everyone bar a few people had the same look; "emo"

I had a slap-head bald haircut, and the few people who weren't dressed that way came up to me

will-morale: don't give a ****.
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

easy way to tell-who do you listen to?
god loves the working man. unfortunately, that puts me in deep crap.

you sir, may c*m blood, but i sh*t diamonds, guess which is more painful. especially after curry.

So, if you love something but you don't look like people in that genre that makes you poser? B.s. who cares what they think. I think it'd be the people who go far out of their way to look like a prick that are the true posers.


Edit: also you kinda come off as a 12 year old who just heard of metal, what with the user name, and the music is my life! kind of thing.

Metal isn't so much about the music, as it is a fashion statement.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
