Oh so emo...

No matter where you are in the world, it seems that every high school naturally segments itself into clicks and groups. Your jocks, your geeks, band kids, track stars, and of course emo.

According to a recent article by The Guardian, "Emo kids were described as teenagers who wear black, have facial piercings and black hair with fringes that "cover half the face." Certainily infringing their apathy onto others with those loose fringes.

Well Russia thinks so apparently...A new Russian law could make being an emo kid illegal. The law would regulate emo websites and ban emo and goth dress style in schools and government buildings. I hardly think throwing some teenagers in the goulag is going to brighten up Russia. How does Russia not identify with the bleakness of emo anyway; Russia is not exactly a cornucopia of colors, bright spirits, and enthusiasm. Russia, embrace your emoness; your joie de vive is your lack thereof.

Until then...

To all emo kids,

Watch your back.

The Most Adorable Thing I've Seen All Week

The Boys and the Subway is the story of two boys who are obsessed with the NYC Subway system. I think I like it so much because it reminds me of my childhood. Because it's genuinely one of the most innocent, adorable things I've ever seen.

On the lighter side, my wallet is still missing in lower Manhattan and I've got a bunch of stitches what was my 'good' foot.

But seriously, so adorable.
