So I am new to this website, I guess I am a new folk.

How old are you? 19 years

Where are you from? Massachusetts Merrimack Valley Area, but near Boston too.

List some bands you are into at the moment. Delorean, Dirty Projectors, Fugazi, Gaslight Anthem, Pictureplane, Bon Iver, Wolf Parade, Minutemen, Animal Collective. The biggest band I am into at this moment is my silly little band. You may know what it is like I spend a lot of time doing stuff for it, and the songs get stuck in my head. Plus at this moment I am literally into them.

What is the last record you bought? The last album I acquired through non buying means was Rooty by Basement Jaxx. The last record I actually bought is something I want to give a backstory to. It was Middle of Nowhere by Hanson, which is a band I really like a lot, which I liked since I was 7, and I am not ashamed to admit it. There was a sale at my library selling CDs for 1 dollar each. I bought a lot of all right CDs mostly 90s alternative and the Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack. I saw Middle of Nowhere there, and after I bought everything, I went back and I said I am going to get this CD, so I bought it. That is the story. And Hanson is an awesome band.

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step?
Pile ons and sing alongs.

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together?
I like sxe hxc all right, but mostly people I know right now who are like my friends and acquaintances. Other than that I don't have a wide knowledge of sxe hxc, but some bands that'd be fun to see are SSD, Chain of Strength,Youth of Today. Minor Threat is one of my favorite bands but I don't consider them to be straight edge, but I don't know what sxe hxc is, and who does? there is no set definition. However I would like to see tem and they are very related to straight edge so yeah.


Also



Where are you from?
* Philadelphia, but I'll be going to college in a few months in Boston


So about going to college in Boston. I go to school near there. So woo hoo, maybe we might even go to the same one. If not Boston is still just a great place.

Oh boy questions to answer, that is a good way to exchange ideas which can be like people talking to each other.

I like how when you quote something here it doesn't make like a big quoting chain where everything gets quoted.

Ok so If by "why not" you mean why don't I consider Minor Threat straight edge, and not "why not to everything I said, the reason is that they made the song "straight edge" and everything but they don't consider themselves to be straight edge and some of the people in the band aren't straight edge. they are related in that they wrote songs that started a movement, and they have a lifestyle and so many people who are straight edge look up to them as role models of what this movement is about.

When I say I don't know what hardcore straight edge is, I mean there are lots of ways to define straight edge, hardcore and hardcore straight edge. I don't know what these words mean. I don't have any definitions for any of these terms, I only have vernacular and cultural connotations of movements that are were made by people acting together in the last 30 years.
But that is just a big exposition of meaningless babbling stream of conscious writing.

So when you say i thought it was hardcore that's straight edge no? That is correct. Whatever hardcore that's straight edge's meaning in your thoughts is what it is and I took a really simple questions and got perplexed by the complexity of language.

Hey straightXed! yeah i know! i was flicking through another post before joining and saw your skate video in weston super mare! :D i thought that was sweet!
I used to skate, well, still do, but not often, just to get around faster these days haha.

im hoping to probably get to know you all fairly well over time, my best friend who has been edge for about 3 years was the one who opened my eyes to it all, and it made me realise how similar my beliefs were and the person i want to be even before i made that conscious choice to make it a life commitment. its something i thought about for a long time beforehand and i feel very strongly about it.....it's actually rather liberating to know i never have to conform to relying on intoxicants to live my life to the full and have fun, not that i needed them in the first place...but unfortunately my friend and his gf are really the only people i can to chat to about it all, so i thought i'd immerse myself within the community to discuss more :D

sorry for the overflowing rant, you've all probably heard it before and know what its all about so i need say no more!

(Oh and epic sing along's are the business!)

Hey guys!
I'm Marion, I'm 20 and I live in the South-West of France. I'm currently pursuing a research degree in English studies which is kind of shitty to translate 'cause your degrees are not the same as in Europe...basically, I'm in fourth year in college. I'm specializing in US civilization and I had the (brilliant?) idea to do my research on Straight Edge. Since no one has ever heard of sxe in France, it makes a really cool topic.

I've known about sxe for a bit more than one year, when I saw a singer of a great band who was X'ed up on a pix. I'm not sure I can call myself sxe (got a problem with labels lol) but I don't drink, don't do drugs etc...which is the strangest of all things in a alcoholic nation like France. I just know of a couple of people who choose not to use (and since I've let them know what sxe is, they're straight), everybody else is just...drunk and wasted every Saturday nights. And it stinks.

Now, the rest:

List some bands you are into at the moment:
the band I quoted before is my favorite, they're Canadian: The Agonist. Best metalcore ever! (and they're vegan and sxe, on top of it!)
another band I can't stop listening to is French band Gojira (if you must know of only one French band, that'd be them!), they play metal.

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step?

Don't really know a lot of them, actually, but i've discovered Minor Threat and Youth of Today recently (thanks sxe books!), and they just rock!

And I've been singing/screaming in a metal band for a couple of months, most of the band is sxe (there is no really big HC scene where I live, so the very few straight kids that there are play metal lol)

That was long, sorry!

Welcome to the boards !

Unfortunately, I don't know a lot of them, most of HC bands I know are from my region, and there's mixed up with some metal at least lol
but still, here are some:
H-Tray (with a really good female drummer)
some other that I know 'cause they play around my place: Ritsos, Alea Jacta Est, 8Control, Hate Me Tender, Owngame, South Impact, Plebeian Grandstand...

No, I'm not around Hossegor nor near the ocean, I live in Toulouse.
Yep, Gojira is the only French band that is really known abroad...the only one to tour the US...and to tour it with Metallica and Lamb of God ;)
Haa Graspop, seems really nice! I've hesitated going there a couple of times...but the French Hellfest is closest, and the bands are nearly as good lol

My dad went to Toulouse a month ago, I heard it's nice there. And I once heard a song from a band called Vegastar, it was in French but I don't know if it was from France or Belgium.
How much is Hellfest, GMM is getting sooo expensive.. I didn't go this year just because of the price and I also had seen a lot of bands already.

Hmm, I only have 1 song but I can understand why ppl find 'em dumb, altho I like the song.
Darn, every single music festival in Europe is getting more expensive every year. You can't call it a 'youth-festival' anymore. GMM was 120 I think for 3 days.
I don't know if you know the Rock Werchter festival ? Bought a combi ticket this year and a camping ticket. It was 190 euro.
Are there other good festivals in France ?

I've heard of Rock Werchter...didn't know it was that expensive!
And there's a few festivals in France...but not really good ones, like the Eurokennes, it's like 2/3 "extreme" bands and the rest is just plain stupid french fashion-rock (the dumbest music ever)
the other fests are not good either...French people don't know what good music is

List some bands you are into at the moment. In the moment I haven't been listening to music honestly, watching too much tv and dvds. Lately though I've been listening to pop.

What is the last record you bought? You really don't wanna know.

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step? Pile-ons and sing-alongs

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together? This is a tough one, cause most of the bands I'd like to see are just hxc or maybe had like one sxe member bah I dont care. I just wanna see Bane and Comeback Kid again and I'd love to experience Minor Threat and Bad Brains back in the 80s. Other then that I'd like to relive some old shows before bands changed their sounds.

I dont want to sound steriotypical, but lets say I'm not into your type of music. I like Reggae, Folk, Funk, some Rap and Hip-hop, Blues and Jazz. So yeah, lol, I'm not really into the hardcore metal bands.

My favourite at the moment are; Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, Donavon Frankenreiter, Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Gregory Isaacs.

The las record I bought was; Christmas In The Heart - Bob Dylan. Just over a month ago.

I love sing-a-longs.

Sorry, but like I said earlier, I don't really know the hardcore metal scene etc. My music taste might be different, but there are still the same type of themes. Getting high, legalising it, freedom etc. There are some artists in the genres that have songs against drugs and drinking etc. I like the music, but yeah, I class myself as StraightEdge because like everyone else, I don't drink, smoke, do drugs etc.

Well anyway, I'd like to meet some new friends on here and yeah, I'll see how it goes :)

that is why you are not sxe. this is why i have a problem with cm punk and him using sxe as a gimmick. it's taken out of concept. sxe is being drug free AND being involved in the hardcore scene. it's great that you're drug free, but you're definitely not edge.

You should class yourself as drug free as straightedge is a term inherently linked to hardcore, so essentially you are not accurately describing yourself by that term. Drug free is just as cool though although you miss out on the finger points and pile ons but i'm sure you will live!

i totally understand what you mean, but my problem is, why does straightedge have to be strickley 'hardcore'? yeah im not into the same music as you, but i have the same morals and looks on life as you. it annoys me, in the UK people regard me as a chav, because of my appearnce, people like me get accisiacted with binge drinking, drug taking and dealing, violence, vandals, rebals and so on. the only thing that seperates us our music taste. we are still the same. i cant see why people who listen to other music cant be classed as straightedge.

but yeah, i do understand that it is linked to hardcore, but it doesn't necesarilly have to be linked to one thing.

but yeah, i do understand that it is linked to hardcore, but it doesn't necesarilly have to be linked to one thing.

Because to differentiate straightedge from simply being drug free it needs some kind of specific criteria. That criteria just so happens to be the cultural association of hardcore which provides straightedge with its identity in contrast to just being drug free in many ways. By providing a platform to share ideas and concepts about things and providing a unique history which has allowed straightedge and other unique ideas to hardcore grow and move with regards to the combined expressions of the people involved nit has become a vital aspect that if removed leaves you with something that misses so much of what straightedge actually means.

Heres a better way to look at it, if you have a group of kids that are straightedge and a group of kids that are simply drug free like yourself, what can you essentially gather as likely common ground from that information. Now, we know that people who correctly use the term straightedge (at lets for this example assume the people i am highlighting are doing so) will have a common association with the hardcore music scene, more than that, the straightedge hardcore music scene, and all the dynamics that are associated with that present themselves as things that associate these people. Now all the drug free people like yourself only have the absence of drugs in common and nothing unique to tie your personal beliefs together into some kind of sub culture as you have with straightedge. So while i champion your decision, its just a personal choice to abstain from drugs where as hardcore is something tangable that one can be actively participating in.

If this still doesn't authenticate the difference then i would ask you to ask yourself a question. I would ask you to note down all the things that make you straightedge, omitting the drug abstinance as that is simply described by the term drug free, and have a look at what makes that term descriptive of you and your actions, if you actually come up with any then please share because in all reality you shouldn't find anything that uniquely describes you and thats why the term shouldn't really be used as it tends to take away from the impact of its true meaning and association. Which would get us back to why CM Punk is not exactly doing us here any favours. If you still question why people who don't listen or participate in the hardcore scene cannot be straightedge or why it is linked to hardcore and not other genres then i am explaining myself terribly and i will endevour to rectify that with further posting.

Now obviously this is a welcome thread, and you may not be feeling so welcome at the moment but thats the nature of things, people here are simply ensuring that people who come here get an accurate picture of things. I would like to extend some kind of welcome to you and say stick around, learn about what makes straightedge and hardcore inseperable and enjoy.

Ed says it all a lot better than I can but I've always tried to describe it like this...

Straight edge is hardcore kids against drugs, the same way SHARPs are Skin heads against racial prejudice. No one would call themselves a Sharp without being a skin head no matter how much they hate racism, same thing with edge if you aren't hardcore, you aren't edge.

hardcore is that thing that makes edge people edge, and the cement for the culture, it's what separates edge from all the recovering alcoholics, people whyo abstain for religious reasons, and people who simply abstain as a personal commitment to themselves.

Non of the people who chose to be drug free and fit any of the above groups for example have any less strength in their commitment, they don't have any less of a struggle especially in countries like the UK (I grew up there so know how hard it is to live drug free in the UK) it just means the label Straight edge doesn't accurately describe them, just the same way as I hate racism, but aren't a Sharp.

It doesn't mean you can't hang out with edge kids as a way to connect with other people who fight every day to live drug free, and feel others would be better off the same way (though the way to do that in real life would be to go to hardcore shows). It just means that you are drug free and proud, it should be the commitment that you take pride in, no matter what words are the best to describe you.

ahh rite ok, thanks for that. now i understand why you guys don't particularly like cm punk and the wrestling world. i know its an important culture to you and you dont want outsiders stepping in and taking the name off of you and trying to make it into something else. i know why you dont like people like me claiming it because to be honest, at first when we claim straightedge, we know nothing about your culture.

actually, i would just like to say, i listen to Crunk music, which is a sub-genre of hip-hop. it originated alongside the concept of crunk, meaning out-of-control crowd action. i actually forgot about this, but crunk has always been regarded as a type of aggressive and hardcore style of music with artists like three 6 mafia, lil jon and the ying yang twins etc.

i know its not exactly like the hardcore music you're into, but it is still a form of hardcore, so technically, that makes me hardcore right? and therefore, i can claim straightedge.

No, its not a form of hardcore...hardcore refers to a particular style of music, its not being used here as a term to describe how underground something is. So no, you really still shouldn't claim straightedge.

5. Spin Kicks and Two-Step

I don't know if I can claim sXe honestly, I heard about sXe maybe 2 years ago and did some research on it.

I admire and respect what you stand for and against but I've only recently gotten into the music like Minor Threat, Youth of Today and Have Heart and I listen to Rap, Reggae, Reggaeton and Punk bands like Iggy and The Stooges and Bad Brains.

I have always been drug free except when I've taken medicine when I was sick, even resist my own dad when he asks me to drink with him.

I have no sXe tattoos because I don't want to claim sXe when I may not be considered so.

Maybe I'm too new to claim sXe and if thats the case then I hope I can at least be considered a friend and supporter of sXe.

Thank you, I'm sure I will enjoy it here.

I mentioned medicine because I know some Straight Edge people consider things like Asprin and Ny-quil to be drugs.

I listen to Outkast, Jay-Z, Big Pun, Deltron 3030, Blackstar, Run-DMC...I could go on.

They are drugs but straightedge is not about denying medicine for illness, thats simply a retarded thing to do. Straightedge is about refraining from drug use for recreation because there is simply no good reason to do that but medication has a very good reason.

Have been into them for a while, but those are the most prevalent right now. Last cd bought was Living Sacrifice "The Infinite Order". I am partial to the two step, but love pile ons. I got some big friends, so I don't envy those who succumb to the devastation from above, but still. I would love to see Bane, Terror, xTyrant, Since the Flood, and Have Heart. I know Since the Flood isn't edge, but still would love to see em.

Howdy.

How old are you?
I'm 17, turning 18 in about 4 months

Where are you from?
Singapore. That tiny pinprick at the end of the Malaysian Peninsula. Oooo I see a malaysian user! o/

List some bands you are into at the moment.
Opeth, Quo Vadis, Cynic, Rush, Tool, Necrophagist, Kataklysm, Grave, Dark Tranquillity, Death, Decapitated and Arsis, just to name quite a few. Generally mostly technical, melodic, old-school and prog Death Metal bands with some old Thrash Metal and Prog Rock scattered here and there.

What is the last record you bought?
In Battle There Is No Law by Bolt Thrower and You'll Never See / And Here I Die by Grave.

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step?
My apologies, but I don't listen to hXc, so I don't know the definitions of the aforementioned terms.

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together?
Well, haha... *shrug*


Maybe you guys might find it weird that someone who listens to absolutely zero hXc sXe knows about the sXe movement and some would probably shoo me away, but hear me out. First things first, I don't claim to be sXe, not when I have doubts that I actually practice what I would claim.

I first came across the words Straight Edge when reading up on the Wikipedia profile of Between The Buried And Me guitarist Paul Waggoner, which had a passing mention of him being sXe. I looked it up and glanced over the details, and noted that it was a movement against drugs and alcohol, and that was about 2 or 3 years ago. I didn't think about it too much until about 1.5 years ago, when an acquaintance and now close friend of mine remarked "whoa, you're straight edge?" after I declined a cigarette stick. And yes, about 40% of underage youths here smoke. Its become like a social act or something, not that I understand or would care to.

Anyway, after said remark, I spent more and more time pondering about and researching the Straight Edge lifestyle, status and movement. The more I thought about it, the more I felt I identified with it. I dislike smoking, only tolerating it because most of my friends and bandmates happen to smoke, I seem to have developed an alcohol intolerance so I steer clear of most alcoholic beverages and drunk people irritate the hell out of me anyway, and recreational drugs are as useless as the people who take them.

But of course I am not someone to dive headlong into something. I feel the need to know more about the movement and the lifestyle, and joining this board seemed the logical thing to do. Therefore here I am, typing this doggone wall of text, and I haven't even finished half of my introduction.

Anyways, time for the lumpy list of facts about this lumpy guy. I'm a fat asian guy with a sweet tooth (duh, lol), I'm pursuing a Diploma in Music and Audio Technology at a local technical college, I'm a musician that plays the guitar, You could say I'm a geek (I have THAT username and I play EVE Online), I use a mac (used them my whole life, so no trendwhore-calling please), I'm not afraid to tell my perceived truth and not afraid to admit that I make mistakes, I do my best to be neutral unless the situation warrants me to take a stand, I know that whatever I do I'll still make enemies (what matters is who you make enemies of), I have long hair (about 5cm longer than shoulder-length), Music and food are my deuce, I value myself as an intellectually thinking member of society, I'm an audiophile and a proud metalhead. \m/

It's 12:50 am now, and I am as alert as I was at noon yesterday. This is not normal.

Not even slightly. But after reading through some of your replies to other posters on this site I've found you to be a tad annoying,was you starved of attention as a small child? Because if your internet persona is anything like your real life personality I wouldn't be in the lest bit surprised no attention was thrown your way. NOW FUCK OFF AND LEAVE ME ALONE.

I could say the same thing of you. On the internet, you can interpret posts in more than one way. Maybe if the board would offer smilies you would interpret my posts differently.
And hey, I'm not the one throwing insults at people on internet fora without knowing even the slightest thing about 'em. I don't know what you want to accomplish here, but you're not a really nice guy dude.

I don't wanna put any more energy in this but here it goes.

It wasn't meant as a bad welcome, nor as a good welcome. It wasn't a welcome at all. And yes I could post a welcome message but that ain't gonna happen after all the shit he called me. That post wasn't meant for him, and it wasn't my intention to diss the guy, he even wasn't offended by it so I don't get it at all. There are more uncool things you can say on a internet board than pointing out that Shane is the biggest drunk ever, like saying that someone has to kiss your dick and all that. He even went on in other forums on this board.. I kinda had it with him.

Now let's end this chapter, thanks.

I do the best I can to teach them right from wrong but, in a small town where little girls are getting pregnant as early as 11 and teens are having fishing parties and over dosing, my best may not be good enough.

well, straight edge is a music derived "sub culture", we're all kids who listen to hardcore music (from bands like Minor Threat, 7 Seconds and Gorilla Biscuits to some new bands that i dont really listen to so i dont know them) and dont do drugs. generally its the sense of building a better place for us and everybody and being aware of what surrounds us. some people say its just being "drug free" but it's the hardcore music what actually tie us all together.

you should probably listen to the bands i mentioned before and some other ones like Youth of Today and Half The Battle to get a better sense as to what straight edge is. Because it's not something that should be forced on people.

First of all, welcome!


I have heard that a lot of you don't have sex outside of marriage.

After spending more than a year researching straight edge (and I'm definitely not done with it), I've deduced that only a very small percentage of straight edge kids were against sex before marriage, basically. Except for the more extremist kids, few people do that, I'd say... Straight edge is not a religion and sex is not wrong, but being straight edge means being aware and in control, so, this applies to one's sex life, too. But that's just what I observed myself, so I'm no authority, for sure.

sxe is a music centered youth culture with participants abstaining from mind altering substances.
Sex doesn't have anything to do with straight edge, and I've yet to meet people who had a mindset you described.
sxe basically means people who are involved in the hardcore scene and are drug free. that should sum it up

To be honest Mark I'd have said those things (well maybe not all) But at least some if I was having a conversation about likes of bands and I was replied with what I found a tad juvenile comment back. It was called jest and throw away comments, to which I admit going over board but as stated in jest......For someone to psychoanalysis someone via a internet forum would be silly and rather mental. I took it as someone being an internet warrior and thought I'd wind him back up. It worked. But no offence was truly meant. Cross my heart xoxo.

welcome to the forums. does kansas have a vibrant hardcore scene?



Lawrence and Kansas City are the two cities in Kansas whether there are punk/hc scenes. (there's probably one in Wichita also, but I don't know)

I don't really hang out in kansas city, so I don't know what is happening there. However, I know they have quite a few straight edge and Bridge 9 style hardcore bands. In terms of hc and punk, kansas city probably has the better bands, but I prefer Lawrence.

Lawrence, KS is home to the Univ of KS, and has quite a few punk houses. Although it's nationally known for its indie pop scene (The Casket Lottery, The Anniversery, Get up kids, etc) it does have a vibrant punk scene. There are a couple punk houses where shows are held and the scene is pretty full of crust punks and grind punks and anarcho-punk types. I used to attend all the shows at one of the punk houses (The Haunted Kitchen)...(saw Hammer, Regulations, Signal Lost, etc)... but there was never any hardcore or straight edge bands which came through. The hardcore punk bands that played there were always the typical MRR (maximum rock n roll) style bands ranting and raving about smashing the state and fighting for anarchy....

I haven't gone to any shows for a couple years now...I still buy records and read zines, but just not into the scene and scene type people anymore.

EDIT:
Lawrence also has a really cool garage punk festival coming up...The Oblivions, The Gories, Tyvek, Digital Leather, and a million other bands....should be cool for those into garage punk

oh, ha ha, missed your username...I used to like that stuff and read MRR religously...Lawrence is considered the Berkely of the midwest, even has its own anarchist library and played host to some American Anarchist conference a couple years ago (it was a bunch of tents near the lake)...unfortunately, no REAL hardcore or straight edge....I was always careful not to wear an edge shirt to the punk houses because plenty of hxc kids had been beated up at punk houses....Lawrence also had it's share of punk gangs and a couple anti-skinhead gangs also (although there really weren't any skinheads in lawrence..kinda odd)

hmm i never knew that haha. We have an Infoshop if that is what you mean by anarchist library, but then we allow lenin and other authoritarians like him a spot on our shelves, freedom of the press i guess haha. and being a fairly progressive city we have alot of Co-ops that are actually collectively owned, though i've never checked out (or been aware of) any punk houses round here. That crazy to have hardcore kids beat down but i guess that could happen!

Well, I did a quick Google search (alex-fr) for you, it seems the guy is both handsome and looks stylish:

Well, what do you think? Good enough for you?

That kind of lines rarely works, especially with girls that are in demand. Usually girls are not that interested in your hotness, what they're interested in if you're a real deal. Marion, give me a silent nod here.

Alright, so you'd want to go with something along the lines of: "Marion, I bet you're too shy to call me up first and ask me to invite you to Belgium to have great fun! And no, I'm not talking about eating French fries for every meal and arguing about their Belgian origin... more like having fun, you know?"

Try something like that sometimes. It's like magic.

I love reading you guys :)

So, @Lifestyle X: people from Belgium usually have a belgian accent. And even the hottest top model cannot be sexy if he had that kind of accent. Haha, just kidding... I think.
And there's no arguing about the origin of French fries. We all know they're from Belgium, and we French people even have some jokes with fries included. (I wish I could tell you one, but you need to see it performed... too bad!)

Anyway, I'll let you know when I approach Belgium (which happens quite often since half my family lives like 15 km away from Belgium).
And Belgium has like the hottest sxe gigs in that corner of Europe, I heard!

haha, your accent might be even worse, no idea!

Well, yeah, there's some gigs... but no sxe ones. And where I live there's kind of a small hardcore scene, but it's blent with the metal one because this one is pretty big. Ans it's super cool to see hardcore gigs at metal gigs and metalheads at hardcore shows! But still no sxe stuffs! The only sxe band that has played near my place is Nueva Etica.

I'm 37.

I currently live in LA, and I've lived and been active in the punk scene in Wisconsin, Chicago, Boston, and New York. Moved to LA about a year ago and am still getting acclimated.

Having just read the new book on the hardcore scene in Detroit ("Why Be Something You're Not"), I'm keen on early Midwest hardcore bands right now.

Last night, I picked up two No Empathy records, a CD by The Fix, and the Negative Trend EP on CD. The Fix record is awesome.

I would have loved to have seen a show by Freewill (sxe?), Minor Threat, Seven Seconds, and Youth of Today.

Grew up near Whitewater. Went to shows in Whitewater, Madison, and Milwaukee. Helped book shows and worked merch in Janesville and Beloit c. 1990. I remember hanging out on State Street, buying 7"'s at Cat's Meow.

Haven't been straight edge the whole time, alas. In college, and after, I drank a little, with a stint smoking -- but was still vegetarian (lacto-ovo). Now, in my 30s, I've ditched the drinking and cigs and am all the better for it. About 80% vegetarian.

Interested in reconnecting with the idealism and energy I used to get from hardcore. Which is what brought me here!

Hey all,

I am glad to have found this place and hopefully that holds true. I am not sure where I lay in the line of subsets of straight edge but Ill tell you a little about my beliefs (feel free to open discussion in some other thread so I don't pollute this one). First off I am straight edge only for the sake of humanity. I think that the practices that many use and abuse are damaging to the future of humanity. I don't think it matters if we spoil a planet or anything else but we have to be aware that there are many systems that we all depend on as humans and complete recklessness (like most live) can consequently damages the systems we depend on. I am a believer in both FAR left and FAR right wing policy as both could work in my opinion if we had good people and that is (to me) the central issue. I have consumed alcohol in the past and see no problem with someone drinking a little once or twice but I choose not to do so to send a statement to my peers and any others. I tend to have more angst toward this behavior being social as it pushes the idea that it is worth of everyone's time. I also remain abstinent until I get married which for me has nothing to do with a founded religion. It has everything to do with finding the person that I would be ready to produce a child with. I believe that moral strength and integrity are part of the missing equation that would lead to the failure of humans as a species. I am also a fond believe in the knowledge scientific research brings but I also believe we jump the gun too much and we don't learn as much as we could from things because it isn't financially sound to people and people don't want it because it won't make them money which also is a morality issue IMO. That being the just of what I think I could expand forever in all likelihood.

welcome! Milwaukee NICE. if you are ever coming to madison let me know. I (think) agree with your statement about the environment, i don't think the non sentient (i do think other animals that can suffer do matter, irrespective of human attitudes to them) environment has inherent value. I also am pretty into philosophy, and i think morality/ethics are really xCOREx (get it!) to what happens to humanity as a whole and to our relationships with each other. though i think those of us who think morality is a big deal gotta make sure to understand disagreement as often not just a morality versus immorality thing haha.

i think it sucks for everybody right now, and i imagine that its turning into a circuit of people trying to advertise the stuff of their bands in other profiles that the other bands dont care enough to read about.

i dont see anybody actually paying attention to where they advertise or if there's an actual feedback other than "thanks for the add"

even the upside of sharing your music "kinda" easily is distorted because some flash apps in comments have some sort of autoplay function that's utterly annoying.

On the myspace thing, i totally agree that it sucks now.

But them damn bats and all the funky shit really got old. Now i go on there to listen to bands i don't have cds off and just scrolling through all the auto-posts.... uhhhh
