That damn pose

Recommended Posts

I'm having a late night head scratch.

My friend has chucked a bunch of pictures up on the internet of some metal bands, all posing together in a big group making faces. They're also making simulatenous cupping gestures with their hands.

What the hell does a cupping gesture mean?! is it the new devil horns? Is it a statement regarding underpriveleged Dickensian children begging for more gruel (Orphanxcore)? What relevance does this have to metal music?

We would like some pictures of said gesture in order to understand it further.

Can you supply the goods?

Here we go...

The ol' invisible oranges.

edit: Back left maybe have an invisible beach ball however.

I think it's a peacock-style strut to all the other prospective Hershey Highway bandits in the room that says:- "Hey Boys!, we've got balls THIS big"

...or something...

:laughing:

...and the guy to the rear left has got REALLY big pods...hence the two-handed gesture!

Those are truly awful metal claws! About as grimm as a walk in the sunshine.

That's how it's done ^

I suggest turning this thread into a metal claw picture thread, it would be for the ultimate good of mankind.

It is the current ironic fad - pretending to pose like a metal god.

HAHAHAHA, I GET IT DUDES!

It's sort of the equivelent of making a 'west side' gesture with your hands and tilting your baseball cap to the side, because it's funny to pose like a 'gangsta' when you're a middle class white guy. That's the humour. "I'm posing like a gangsta, but I am actually a private school educated boy". You get it? He's a white boy, but he's posing like a 'gangsta' from the ghettos of Compton. He is one thing, but he is pretending to be something else...it's funny.

That pose has been the international gesture for 'EEEUUUGGGHHHHH!' for ages now! To be used upon receipt of pleasing news.

Example: "Hey there, I just bought you a ticket to see american head charge playing a secret gig in aberdeen tonight"

(Claw gesture accompanied by EEEUUUGGGHHH!)

I was seriously into my metal but 3/4 years ago, and I knew nothing off these claws and pouty faces. I think these kids need to get back to their roots and stick to a spot of air punching and teeth baring.

And maybe stop standing in such close proximity to other blokes. Having a big cuddle is nae very metal.

This guy has got it down though. He is clearly (right hand) cupping his mates balls, whilst simultaneously grabbing at a young lassies boobs. All this while bearing his teeth like his life depended on it.

Well done sir, *claps* well done.
