i don't know how you can go from liking this to that. they're so different, like almost polar opposites.

i knew what you meant...i just see way more people dropping CTTS and Rites of Spring into conversations than orchid. usually people who like orchid really really like orchid. like me.

Orchid was pretty big and at forefront of the 'screamo' movement and therefore ripe for namedropping. You'd be surprised though, I've seen scenesters drop a 'I Wrote Haikus' About etc...' and Pg. 99. Did they actually listen? Fuck no, but it's amazing how far people will go to look cool.

That is why I am glad I have two friends who consistently find new bands and share with me. We have some fucking awesome sing alongs in my car. The Kodan Armada ones are my fave.

I've never met anybody in my life who listens to real screamo. I've met a couple of kids who rock Fugazi, Husker Du and stuff, but never any skramz fans. It's unfortunate, but everybody that lives around me thats near my age only listens to southernCRUNKWHATOKAYY rap or generic pop.

Doom is nasty.

I love it. It's so messy and sloppy yet honest.

By new post-rock, I meant the 2008 craze on AP.

As for I Wrote Haikus, don't like at all. Don't get it either.

And as for meeting people in LA who like skramz, there's a decent amount. We're just old and senile kind of.

Doubtful . Plus I live in a suburb about 10 miles east of LA in a predominantly asian community. You can bet your ass I'm the only skramz fan here.

Dear Diary, I Seem to be Dead.

Retarded song titles, alright band. I used jam 10.07.02 all the time.

Those threads always go awry. That is why you need to use skramz. The code has not gotten out of the circle yet.
