Make sure you take a look at cheapassgoth. Because maybe by looking at one of the auctions they’ve found, you end up looking at other auctions by the same seller, and then you manage to score a pair of vintage Fluevog Swordfish boots for under $10.

“Hands up anyone who can name even one thing that badgers have done to enhance our lives ? You can’t, can you? All badgers ever do is have adventures with moles, and they give cattle TB.

They’re out there, walking amongst us. Breathing our air. They look like us; talk like us. They may be your friend, your lover. Your family. They smile as you smile and drink coffee and eat bagels, as you may well do. They go to your gym or your school, you may work with them. You may have accidentally married one of them. But do not be fooled. They are not like us. But they are not like you, they are not like me.
I work in a Srs Business Anti-Goth environment but lately I've found myself rambling about how many tarantulas I own or more I want to get, bats, lizards, I wear black & thick boots in warm weather, I may have multicolored hair, and I have a black skull on my desk. I'm... I'm still just a kooky eccentric, right? Right?!
Bats and lizards and other things that go bump in the night?! That sounds creepy-kooky and altogether spooky!
I’m glad you work in a healthy non-goth environment, now you need to engage the frantic race to be on top of trends; which don’t stop at clothing, hair and makeup anymore!
Get on the new fad diet, workout, app, fb game, celebrity to hate, celebrity to pity, minority conspiracy to dread, flame war to take a stance on and body part to hate!
Having a family friend demand that you never name a child “Raven.”

One day Draven might be screaming at YOU that it’s their life in front of sports posters wearing brightly colored clothes while bubblegum pop plays in the background before they slam the door in YOUR face.
