I followed your advice. I left the punk rock scene and got a corporate job. I threw away my bat sleeves, cobwebs, and leather, and bought some nice blazers and ties. And then somehow this boat appeared out of a mount of trash bags and I was in it chanting, "O, are they merely crying, father? Yes, true weeping is yet to come." What happened there?
Son of a Banshee! I hate to say this, but you have to get some Hot Goffic clothes to smother out the demons with the power of The Mall.
When your eyes start rolling and the word “poseur” is hissing all around you; the cleansing has begun.
My fiancé just pointed out to me that if we have a gothic wedding, he could legitimately dress like Bowie from Labyrinth for the event. Help me, Goth Triggers, I lack the strength to resist those tight pants.
Before you go shopping for Cod pieces, try switching to a healthier fictional character- like Ned Flanders!
Goth is deader than death, it died in the 80’s or maybe (just maybe) beginning of the 90’s and you can make up all the arguments you want but that won’t change the fact that goth ended a while ago and by goth I mean the actual musical…
This is probably the funniest thing I’ve read all day. Next time I see StuntHusband, I’m going to start whispering “GOTHSHARK GOTHSHAAAAAARK gothshaaaaark” at him.
He’ll probably throw a book at my head or something.
Next time I get in a discussion with anyone about subcultures and labels I am definitely telling them I’m a shark and I need no label.
Goth is deader than death, it died in the 80’s or maybe (just maybe) beginning of the 90’s and you can make up all the arguments you want but that won’t change the fact that goth ended a while ago and by goth I mean the actual musical movement (post punk) Deathrock and other sub genres started way after that but it’s also over, all the new “gothic rock” bands have nothing to do with the original movement. Electro Cyber Industrial Goth or whatever is not goth, like at all. Gothic metal is not goth either…(what in the world is gothic metal anyways?, such a weird ass genre) and no kids, Marilyn Manson (industrial metal) is not goth, and Cradle Of Filth (“black metal” even though it’s not even that ) is not goth. Now why am I saying all of this? I know no one asked my opinion but let’s face it, it’s getting annoying how people can say they’re goth because they like Arch Enemy or how the entire goth subculture is about clothing and dressing in black and more bullshit like that, people should really know at least what goth is if they decide to label themselves as “goth”. By the way I AM NOT GOTH! I’M A SHARK AND MY NAME IS MATT, I NEED NO LABEL! But people please just get over it, GOTH IS DEAD! #goth #gothicrock #gothic #postpunk #deathrock
"What’s your favorite album, or book?" "I really like Metamorphosis, I think it says a lot about the human condition and psyche." "Yeah I love Franz Kafka." "Oh no, I was talking about Hilary Duff’s debut album."
Maybe I’ll just listen to the whole Crow soundtrack Maybe I’ll just watch the The Crow Alright maybe I’ll just read the trade Might as well watch an interview with James O’Barr Oh, is that why he wrote that… Well Why not go ahead and cry for the next few hours.
Considering driving three hours to a gulf coast community just so I can take the backroads and photograph all the cool crumbling buildings.
Anyone want to see what low-income areas looked like the day after Katrina? For the most part you can see how it looked today- nearly ten years later!
You might think the hot, humid, sunny weather, the beachy atmosphere, and smothering Bible Belt culture would be good for your long-sought-after (by me) recovery, however the depression your tour of the ruins might produce could counteract any good the Gulf Coast would do you.
