Country Screamo

I think it may be useful for readers to know that I have more than simply a gay component to my personality. While the primary intent for my creation of this blog was to be an outlet in this specific area, I am slowly finding that I have many other things that I wish to record and communicate to others. Thus, please enjoy this entirely random side note.

I hate to have a sales pitch on my blog, but I have recently discovered a band that is entirely noteworthy. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is their name, and they have a lot of talent, angst, and originality. They are not just another emo band. (If you don't know what "emo" means you probably need a dose of pop culture and teenage trends.) One of my good friends and I were discussing how great this band is and how much we enjoy and admire the screaming vocal element, what is referred to in today's musical pop culture as "screamo." This type of music is typically characterized by anger and sorrow, but in this band the screamo lyrics do not match the tone of the voice. Anyway, my friend and I were thinking that it would be absolutely hilarious if there were a country screamo band. Can't you just see guys in jeans and boots screaming with rage into a microphone, "Well, I saddle up my HORSE!"? I think they'd sell more than any other artist to date, simply for being willing to cross the boundary between emo punk and country. May the hicks and the goths unite!

Random and light-hearted enough, Attempting the Path? I think this post deserves to pass your scrutiny. :)

Wait--there's more to you than just being gay??? I just lost all interest...

Maybe Brokeback Mountain should have featured your Country Screamo, rather than Dolly--that would have really made me want to watch it.

Man, the country screamo band would have been perfect for Brokeback Mountain. Maybe they'll make a sequel and my friend's and my band will be the featured musical artist. Cross your fingers...

County screamo... hmm. I think it would at least be better than normal country.

Speaking of country music, did you know that Terri Clark is a lesbian? Honestly I don't even know who she is but I've heard of her and some lady I work with was going to her concert this weekend and said she's a lesbian... so it must be true, right?

Red Jumpsuit Appartus is pretty cool stuff. I'm a big fan of Your Guardian Angel and Face Down is all fun and upbeat until you realize it's all about abuse, but then I kind of imagine the band pushing around the tough guy abuser and I guess it's still kind of upbeat.

well when you think about it, and actually listen to some songs which incorporate both screamo and country elements, it makes perfect sense. both genres embrace sorrow and heartache. I wish there were more country screamo bands out there.

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view

I already tried Second Life, but I didn't feel good about it, it was complicated and hard to understand. What are other good sites like this? I don't wanna have to download anything to my computer because I'm afraid of viruses and things like that. [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
