as a completely inactive member this will go unnoticed and ignored. That being said I broke edge after being edge for 6 years.

enjoy your lives.

NEW COMMUNITY (ALREADY) [16 Apr 2008|12:44am]

xfitforlifex
After all these posts and replies from you guys, I finally made a decision.

Not that many people replied to the name vote, but I feel like its now or never. "edgeapproach" was the name that most of the people that replied liked, so there you go:

edgeapproach
edgeapproach
edgeapproach

Feel free to join and post, and give your comments about the community. If anyone wants to help, just let me know.

I'll see you there!

I have read the replies and its seems like we all think that the best thing is to start a new community. xhellsx gave stilledge as an idea but it was already taken.

I think we should suggest names and vote for one.

Personally I have these suggestions:
-standingxedge
-alwaysedge
-keeptheedge
-lastingedge
-thinkingxedge
-edgeapproach
-edgexidea
-edgexbrains

What do you think about X's, or no X's? What are your ideas for a new name? Lets do a quick brainstorming and vote.

so i guess i kind got accepted in this community..
which leads me to the question, socially who do you not accept as straight edge?
to me even though i applied, the idea of a rating community for edge seems somewhat absurd :D

however by my own admission i have seen people who have applied to this community or just people in life who claim EDGE but dont actually know anything about hardcore. its more like they use it as an expression, im straight edge, kinda like "i'm a nerd" and i dont see them as being edge in the way i am.

is that arrogant and redundant? am i trying to turn straight edge into a clique by not accepting anyone who assures me that they are edge?
is someones assurance they are straight edge enough?
if they abstain from the things that are required, must they then be, vegan? part of the hardcore scene? should those things come first? are they relevant?

i live in a country where there is maybe 50 edge kids, and that is probably a generous exaggeration. kids sell out left right and centre here.
personally i believe you shouldn't be able to claim edge until you are old enough to drink, but i guess that's kind of facist.
it has no basis in how or why the straight edge movement started, i just hate seeing young kids claim edge and then sell out at 18 (legal drinking age in nz) you only get one chance to claim edge, thats why im so glad i didnt claim until i was quite a bit older.

how is straight edge still relevant to you?

thoughts?

MESSAGE FROM MODERATOR [09 Apr 2008|03:29am]

xfitforlifex
Hi,

I don't know if you guys still even use Livejournal, most of you probably don't I dont really use it anymore, but please read this if you care about this straight edge community.

THE POINT: I am not the main moderator, I have NOT CREATED THIS COMUNITY, and I have never taken this community seriously, I used it as an excuse to meet some straight edge people and keep in touch with people all over the world. The truth is that most straight edge people these days just stay in their own place and dont really speak out about their ideas on forums, and if they do, there is always some kind of beef provided by the "seriousness" or "reality" that these message boards reflect.

Now, here is the deal, as you all know this is in fact a rating community, but not many people get refused. We just keep away the people that have nothing much to do with straight edge ideals, but I feel that we could do more with it. The reason why I stayed here for all those years is because I wanted to keep that place from becoming a bitching beauty community or a hateful community, and I wanted to learn about other people. But I am not sure that a "rating community" called "thesexy_sxe" can really help each other speak their minds. We learn some stuff about each other from the applications but I think it could be a lot more.

So what I am asking you guys is to reply to this message, and tell me if you think it would be worth it to change a few things about the community and to start from new. If its not worth it, I guess we will just let this community float.

Thanks
-Tony

Summer shows and two ridiculously huge pictures [25 Jun 2007|11:30am]

by_thesea
[ mood | excited ]

As we all know summer is probably the best time of the year for festivals and every year I get beyond stoked about shows that I'm planning on attending. What are some of the shows/festivals you're excited for?

The great thing about living in Western New York is that we're kind of in the middle of everything, traveling wise. We also get some great shows in the area so here's what I'm pumped for this summer:



Local shows here such as:

  • Verse with Allegiance, Achilles, Ceremony, and Down to Nothing

  • Coliseum

  • Chillin' and Grillin' Fest with Ruiner and Polar Bear Club



In other less significant news, I dyed my hair and it turned out looking like a Crayola marker.Collapse )

[ mood | excited ]

So I arrived in Arizona at 10:30 this morning, I'm here to visit my grandma, and it dawned on me maybe there may be some of you who might hang out while I'm down here. I'm staying in Green Valley all week, I leave next tuesday. The heat is going to kill me so I'm going to need some distractions aside from two senior citizens and a pool...haha. If you feel like showing me around and or hanging out please let me know, I love to meet new people.

Show a Seattlite how to stay cool in all this heat?

I just wanted everyone to know I just got a really sweet nintendo tattoo yesterday.

I don't have pictures yet, mainly because it's just the outline...

but I just thought everyone should know that the entire right side of my stomach/ribs/hip is a nintendo controller with all sorta of pretty around.
