Emo emerged from the hardcore punk scene of early-1980s Washington, D.C., both as a reaction to the increased violence within the scene and as an extension of the personal politics espoused by Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat, who had turned the focus of the music from the community back towards the individual. Emo is basically Emotional Hardcore punk that is wimpy.
Goth is a musical subgenre of post-punk that formed during the late 1970s. Gothic rock bands grew from the strong ties they had to the English punk rock and emerging post-punk scenes. According to both Pitchfork and NME, protogoth bands are Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus and The Cure. The genre itself was defined as a separate movement from punk rock during the early 1980s largely due to the significant stylistic divergences of the movement; gothic rock, as opposed to punk, combines dark, often keyboard-heavy music with introspective and dark lyrics. Gothic rock then gave rise to a broader subculture that included clubs, fashion and numerous publications that grew in popularity in the 1980s.

Yes, knowing your audience is the first step to effective communication. Most people wasting their time browsing topix are simple minded with very short attention spans. We must keep our responses short and to the point.

Goth chicks are more fun in the sack.

Emo chicks want to be little emo boys, and vice versa- very hard to get them to commit to serious sex... the girls, that is- I stay away from those emo boys- they creep me rightDAfuck out!

Rich Egyptians, spoiled young adults and old dudes with money. I am doing the crap job driving around and explaining the track in a Panamerica with 4 passengers. I drove a 997 track car and was way off the pace.I thought I was breaking the car. Wildest transmission I have ever heard. Sounds like it is grenading itself with every down shift..Once I learned that this is normal I got with in 2/10s of the local hot shoe. So time will tell what I end up doing.
