I've been thinking a bit about this whole 'emo' thing. For a while, I've been searching for a way to sum up the sort of random way that people throw song titles and R.E.M. style lyrics together. The more I thought about it, the more that emo song titles sounded like a racing forum:

"It's Manuscript Replica and Rolodex Propaganda neck and neck, followed by Enfilade, Meccano, and Escape Engine. Napoleon Solo is out there by himself, and in the back, it's Starless and One-Armed Scissor trailing the #7 horse, Kevin Is Gone. What's this? OH MY GOD! Coming up on the outside it is Sweet Deals on Surgery followed closely by Non-Zero Possibility! Wow! It's gonna be a four-way photo finish! I haven't seen a race like this since the battle between the triumvirate of Sailor's Fate, My Life As a Housewife, and the Deluxe War Baby! We'll have those results for you in just a few minutes. Back to you in the studio, Bob."
