Just a side note...

Sorry to spam up my flist, but I just had to get this off my chest.

I was checking out my Deviant Art account, and in the comment column of my homepage, someone had written of my likes/dislikes that they found it "curious" that I listen to My Chemical Romance and other bands of their ilk at the apparently advanced age of 35. Apparently she found that very "hopeful".

I actually felt old. First time ever. Normally I don't really notice. Yes, I'm 35, but I'm also only 5 foot tall and dress like a skate punk. I don't look or act my age in the slightest. Most people don't believe me when I tell them that beneath the cool blonde streaks in my hair are some less cool naturally grey ones.

I explained to this person - aged just 15 - that 'Emo' is not just some newfangled thing for kids, and that I've actually been listening to music of this nature for a very long time. I also pointed out that I'm closer in age, and therefore life circumstance, to Gerard Way than any teenager would be. If anything, their music means more to me because I know exactly where they're coming from. Not to mention that it's the only decent music on the airwaves these days.

*sigh* Okay, I'm ranted out now. I'm going off to turn my stereo up to 11...
