Hello. Hooray for into posts.
I found this community, and it looked interesting and most importantly, it looked sane.
Well, some random information about me:

+ I are female, and from England. Top-hole. Jolly hockysticks. Etc.
+ I have a name. It is Becca. Do you have a name?
+ I like blankets.
+ I love zebra print.
+ I was brought up on strange 80's music, and strange 80's music I love.
+ My general music tastes revolve around metal, opratic metal, gothic metal, industrial metal, rock, emo, screamo, indie, punk, ska, pop-punk (it's good for the soul) and stuff. You get the idea.

Anyway, um...I'm nice really, so...talk!

i'm not an indie hipster
This is lame and kinda embarassing because I tried to join an indie hipster rating community, but they rejected me because I like the Stxy and Coheed and Cambria. I forgot that in order to be in a respected scene you have to be very exclusive about your tastes, and you can't like something just cuz you like it, you have to like something because well... you're indie or whatever.
Anyway... so ... I like the Styx and Coheed and Cambria... I also like a plethera of indie bands, and a lot of pop punk, and self proclaimed emo bands like Dashboard Confessionals. I shop at hot topic, but mostly when they are having thier 50% clearance stuff sale, i'm too poor to shop there otherwise.
I like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind... and Josie and the Pussycats
I like quiet local venues and watching local bands... and I went to warped tour this year (it was so awesome!)
I'm 20 years old... and i still watch Disney movies and say things like "it was so awesome!" So I'm happy to say, i'm a poser! I'm happy to like what I like because I like it and not care about what box i fit in because i'd much rather run in a great big open field!

Well, my cousin is ethan turner, the drummer... umm, so yeah... just wanted to say hi. It still amazes me that other people know about 20 minute loop, I live in Mass, so I'm one of the only people in the state who's heard of the band. But yeah... anyway.

Fuck you and big goodbye
Fuck you and big goodbye to everyone here and everything that has a price:

Guy Debord - (excerpt from the Society of the Spectacle)

In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.

The images detached from every aspect of life fuse in a common stream in which the unity of this life can no longer be reestablished. Reality considered partially unfolds, in its own general unity, as a pseudo-world apart, an object of mere contemplation. The specialization of images of the world is completed in the world of the autonomous image, where the liar has lied to himself. The spectacle in general, as the concrete inversion of life, is the autonomous movement of the non-living.

The spectacle presents itself simultaneously as all of society, as part of society, and as instrument of unification. As a part of society it is specifically the sector which concentrates all gazing and all consciousness. Due to the very fact that this sector is separate, it is the common ground of the deceived gaze and of false consciousness, and the unification it achieves is nothing but an official language of generalized separation.

The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images.

The spectacle cannot be understood as an abuse of the world of vision, as a product of the techniques of mass dissemination of images. It is, rather, a Weltanschauung which has become actual, materially translated. It is a world vision which has become objectified.

The spectacle grasped in its totality is both the result and the project of the existing mode of production. It is not a supplement to the real world, an additional decoration. It is the heart of the unrealism of the real society. In all its specific forms, as information or propaganda, as advertisement or direct entertainment consumption, the spectacle is the present model of socially dominant life. It is the omnipresent affirmation of the choice already made in production and its corollary consumption. The spectacle's form and content are identically the total justification of the existing system's conditions and goals. The spectacle is also the permanent presence of this justification, since it occupies the main part of the time lived outside of modern production.

Separation is itself part of the unity of the world, of the global social praxis split up into reality and image. The social practice which the autonomous spectacle confronts is also the real totality which contains the spectacle. But the split within this totality mutilates it to the point of making the spectacle appear as its goal. The language of the spectacle consists of signs of the ruling production, which at the same time are the ultimate goal of this production.

One cannot abstractly contrast the spectacle to actual social activity: such a division is itself divided. The spectacle which inverts the real is in fact produced. Lived reality is materially invaded by the contemplation of the spectacle while simultaneously absorbing the spectacular order, giving it positive cohesiveness. Objective reality is present on both sides. Every notion fixed this way has no other basis than its passage into the opposite: reality rises up within the spectacle, and the spectacle is real. This reciprocal alienation is the essence and the support of the existing society.

In a world which really is topsy-turvy, the true is a moment of the false.

Thats right. Another poser to add to your list. I'm new and i'm a poser...um, i'm just a poser person.

I deliberately wait until my converse are dirty enough before i wear them anywhere cool.

Every time i think of an idea, it turns out someone already thought of it and told me about it.

I get depressed only for no reason whatsoever so i have no excuse and i know it.

I claim to have read books i have never read just so i can seem cool and intelligent (did someone say David Copperfield???)

I say things like "duuuude" and "burrrito" and "you're way harshing my mellow" even though i'm english and dont surf.

I also spell mum 'mom' even though i'm english and call reports 'report cards'.

I'm pretty sure there are more reasons but i cant remember...i had them a second ago.

anyways, i'm Katie.

Hi. I'm fascinated with youth subcultures and try to emulate one or several at a time, admittedly posing. Sometimes I say things are punk or goth or emo to be sarcastic, and some people don't recognise the sarcasm and call me an idiot.

Right now, I wear fake glasses and a fake crucifix. They're fake because I have perfect vision and don't believe in the resurrection of Jesus.

So I'd like to call myself a poseur, but I don't know if I've made an art of my pretention yet. Also, I have something taken from fullyramblomatic.com here:

Are You Pretentious?Collapse )

i found this on darkness.com... very well put if you ask me.

theories on posuers

I have noticed lately that there is much talk about being called poseurs and what not on this site. This is a part of everyday life as we know it. I have a few theories as to why people get called poseurs and why others accuse people of the such.

First off, let's face it people, some people are poseurs. There's no doubt about it. I'm not saying this to accuse anyone of being a poseur or anything of the sort. Please do not take it that way. Everyone is a poseur in some shape or form. Everyone has lied before. So, if you're called a poseur, you may seem that way to other people, or you may actual be one. Who knows? Who really cares? Some people are called poseurs because there is such a radical change in the way they dress and act. If you think that this person is posing, stop and think that this may be there true side. And, even though this person may seem like the stereotypical goth, they may not be trying to be goth. They may not agree with goth insights and points of view. I myself took a radical change. For instance, a little over a year ago, I was listening to NSYNC. Yes, I know, I should be shot. Some people just needed to be exposed to certain ways of life and music and clothing. Others know about it all along they were just too shy to come out. So, ne*who, some people just seem like they're poseurs and they're not. And others just are. So, if you're called a poseur, get over it. You are the only person that's opinion matters and you're the only one that knows the truth. It's not that big a deal.

Ok, on to my next point. Now, this one isn't that backed up, only something that I've thought about. You see, when people call others poseurs, it seems like they are pointing out other people's flaws and "poseurness" to cover their own. I mean, think about it. It's as basic as the play-ground bully. Although, not as extreme. This seems to mostly be done accidentally. People are in constant fear of not fitting in. Ok, hold on, before everyone bombs me with threats on my life, hear me out please. Listen (or read, whatever floats ur boat), I dont care who you are, you are not an individual. There is always going to be someone out there that shares the same ideas and clothing style. There is no shame in sharing. When I say fit in, I dont mean with the main stream. What I mean is, no one wants to be singled out and made fun of or put under a microscope for the world to see. I'm not saying that people dress they way they do so that people will like them. I'm saying that people seek out they're own kind. So, when people start calling others poseurs, they dont want to be the ones being called that. They want the attention turned on someone else in fear that they will be called a poseur, even if they aren't posing in the least. This world is a cruel place but only because of the cruel people in it. So, instead of thinking that someone just hates ur guts or is a bitch for calling you a poseur, think about they're reasoning. Which may include my first statement tied in with the one I'm making now or just this one. I dont know, I'm just guessing. Yes, the reasons are selfish but hey, at least it's not personal right? Right.

Now, here's my third point which is just as possible as the first two. Some people are just assholes and dont know what the hell they're talking about. "Normal" people (if they're is such a thing) have no room to call anyone a poseur. If anything, the majority of them are poseurs for trying to pretend to be something they're not in order to be popular or get people to like them. But, there is another side to this as well. When you think about it deep enough, they are just like you and I. Again, please refrain from trying to murder me thru the computer. We call them names everyday. I see it so much in posts on this site. It's down right sad. Some of the "normal people" do like they way they dress and genuinely like the music they listen to it. Not all of them are shallow and hateful, as the same applies to us. They do have thoughts and feelings like the rest of us. They deal with insecurities. I just think that the leaders of both sides of the spectrums have got it in their heads that we're both better than everyone else or that the other person is some type of alien. Neither of which is true nor are they acceptable for even a pathetic excuse for the way we treat each other. Now, this is more in general terms but it also applies to the poseur topic. I think this war had just gone on long enough but of course the battle between good an evil will never be finished. Yet another fact of life that cannot be avoided.

OK, so, I guess the whole point of this rather long post was to just say, well, some people are poseurs. Others are not. But there is always reason behind someone being called that no matter how trivial or selfish the reason may be. I think everyone just needs to back off and let everyone be whoever the hell they want to be, without having to worry about be criticized for it. It's just ridiculous. So, everyone just get off your high horse and get back to reality. We're all human, and if you have a problem with it, tough shit. This is the only planet with oxygen so get over it already. That's all I have to say about it.
