37 Emo Innovations

From Emoting Animals to Emoticons

— September 29, 2009 — Fashion
These 28 emo innovations include everything that can be emotional, or represent emotion. There are emoting animals, emoticons, emotional editorials, emotional vehicles and even emotional furniture.

Apparently emotions are something that can be applied to any and everything.

Implications - The gloomy alternative rock scene of the 90s was considered cool, but since then, emo has gotten a bad reputation. However, the term become a pop cultural sensation with movies, emoticons, and a whole new generation of music that uses "emo" to attract young teens. With the Anne Rice vampiric romanticism making its way back into the mainstream, the entertainment industry will profit largely from the youth of this generation.
