summer shows [20 Jul 2004|04:50pm]


terror, sick of it all, love is red and with honor were set to play toronto tomorrow but supposedly Vogel is injured so the whole thing has been cancelled. this was one of the shows i was lookinf forward to the most this summer so i'm pretty down about it.

as far as summer shows, i hope i get out to as many as i can. the weakerthans this friday, horse the band, hot cross, walls of jericho, sworn enemy, evergreen terrace, unearth, all sorts of good stuff coming up before the summer ends.

so, anybody been to some good shows lately? or have some coming up?

sxe tattoos [16 Jun 2004|12:40pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

i'm going to get some inking done for a new piece later next week and while i decided on a pair of traditional roses, the idea of getting something sxe related crossed my mind. i know there's been a lot of debate weather getting tattoos should be considered "against" sxe and i know most think that idea is ridiculous. so i guess i'm opening that up for discussion but i'm more so interested in what you guys personally think of people getting sxe tattoos. i know a few of my friends think of it as boasting or showing off the fact that you're edge while others don't care and some like them.

personally, i like the idea of getting tattoos because they're all about commitment. as far as edge tattoos, i've got XRESPECTX on my inner lip where nobody can see it, obviously. the tattoo was solely for myself so i don't mind the fact that it's hidden. i can definitely see myself getting an edge related tattoo in the future. i will admit though, getting a simple "X" tattooed somewhere seems played out to me and if i did, i'd want something somewhat original.

Wake up everyone! We're a community, lets post. I sure you guys have ideas or something. Like what type of music you guys are into, cause i know everyone whose sxe dont always listen to hardcore music or sxe bands. Like me, I like metal and my fav band is Kittie...eh?

Not that this is a big deal for any of you (and it's nearly irrelevant to post) but this summer marks my first year of committed straight edge beliefs and behavior. This has been the best year of my life and I owe it mostly to this new foundation from which I've approached everything. I fully intend to make the most of this for the rest of my life and, in light of that, hope that each of you are making the most of what being edge is, and could possibly, afford you as well.

Be well.

Hi my name is Cassandra I am 17 years old and I live in Chicago. I have been edge for almost a year. It's nice to find a community where there are other people who know what straight edge actually is... I hate it when I write sXe and people tell me that I've spelled sex wrong. I just think kids that brag about getting high, smoking, and getting laid are pretty pathetic and just roll my eyes whenever I hear someone talk like that. So I think it's great that there are other people out there who think it's wrong to do things like that. I'm glad that this community was made :)

intro post, ahoy! [01 Jun 2004|05:57pm]

[ mood | content ]

'ello all. my name is kelly. i'm 16 from a small town in upstate new york, and i've been edge since i think august...i don't remember exactly when i claimed edge. yeah i know i haven't been edge for very long, but i didn't even know there was such a thing until last summer. i was quite glad to find out about it, though, as i've always been against drugs, drinking, and promiscuous sex, so it was niftee to find out that there was a name for my beliefs and tons of other people out there who held the same beliefs.

oh and i'm a vegetarian too, in case anyone cares. contemplating going vegan later in life, but still thinking about it. for now, i've just given up drinking milk (though i still eat most things made with milk).

let's make this a friendly edge community, eh? some people in sxe are quite brutal, and a little intimidating to be honest. we all stand for--more or less--the same things, so we should get along.

hmm i have a question! [01 Jun 2004|03:30pm]

[ mood | curious ]

do you guys ever write on yourselves like.. xxx or xXx or SxE.. or anything that represents the edge?

on my backpack i have xXx but people are always bothering me cause they think i meant it in the porn kinda way, on my innerwrist i find myself doodling three little x's when i'm bored.. it's almost an everyday kinda thing.

so do you do this? and if so, where? and would you ever get a straight edge tatt?

Hey, I just saw an invite for this community in another sxe community so I thought I would join.
My name's Amanda, I'm 19 (I claimed at 14) and I'm from Syracuse, New York. I'm also a lacto vegetarian working my way to veganism. I think that's enough about me.

So this guy walked up to me today, and asked if I wanted to buy any weed. I said, "See these X's, what do you think."

That's my story.
