hello. for piano this year i have to do three pieces, one has to be baroque, one has to be classical, and the last one can be anything. for the baroque piece im considering bach's toccata and fugue in d minor. i'm nearly about to print it out. send help.
DO ANY OTHER PIECE
Okay, but not Moonlight Sonata.
NO, wait, NOT the Funeral March.
Not Lacrimosa! Not a Night on Bald Mountain! Not Dance of the Knights! Those aren’t Baroque; you’re doing this on purpose!
Can I interest you in an accordion? It’s like a portable piano!
You are never not enough. Life and living isn’t a competition, you cannot do it wrong.
If there is someone out there telling you that you are doing your subculture or your belief systems wrong, pardon me, but fuck them. There are no rulers out there measuring, goth enough, smart enough,…
I couldn’t agree more. I heard some jackasses discussing whether or not they would ever date a goth girl - and one of them said - well, maybe a “real” goth, but not a goth who shops at Hot Topic. I would have KILLED for Hot Topic back in the 70’s and 80’s. Taking advantage of something which is readily available doesn’t make you less authentic it makes you lucky to have found it.
DING DING DING.
I (and others) joke about the Elder Goth Cabal, Goth Points, Goth Cards, and so on. THOSE ARE JOKES.
How to tell if you’re being a Real Goth: Are you having fun? There you go, you’re a Real Goth, whatever that is. People who try to act as gatekeepers to a subculture are exclusionary, elitist jerks, and you should ignore them.
If you run across someone who hasn’t heard your favorite band/read your favorite book/watched your favorite movie - fantastic! You get to be the lucky person who introduces them to it, and they get the joy of experiencing it for the first time.
I’m imagining this creepy, skeletal figure in a black robe sitting by a gate waving people in, cackling merrily.
I lied. I’m not imagining it. I’m ironing my robe, my shift is next.
DIY Spell and Potion Book Tutorial from Better After.This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, a glue gun, cardstock, paper towels etc… This DIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait until later to download it.
