It’s alright, don’t panic!
The rule is is you jump into your bed and get under the covers they can’t hurt you.
Repeat after me: they’re just looking for oversized sweaters- this is not like the Lullaby video.
It’s alright, don’t panic!

Anon is NOT EVEN KIDDING.
Ravens and crows are feeling a lil basic rn.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is widely regarded as the first work of science fiction. You all know the story, right? Scientist reanimates dead creature. Creature scares the living daylights out of society in general. Creature smash. A classic tale.
But, where’d she get the idea? Were there real-life Dr. Frankensteins in Mary Shelley’s time? Can we find parallels today? That’s what we’ll examine in this week’s It’s Okay To Be Smart. Of course you’ll have to watch to find out :)
But wait! That’s not all! What does Frankenstein really MEAN? What does it teach us, if anything about science and its impact on life? Is it a tale of science gone too far? Or is it something deeper, a tale about a different kind of monster? Unfortunately, most of the movie adaptations have been, shall we say, “less-than-true to the book” in this regard. But I’ve got your back. Let me know if you agree with my take on the story!
It’s science-meets-history-meets-literature this week on OKTBS, and it comes to life as soon as you hit the play button.
PS - Have you watched Frankenstein, MD from PBS Digital Studios and Pemberley Digital yet? You know, the modern retelling of Shelley’s classic story featuring young medical researcher Victoria Frankenstein and her assistant Iggy? What are you waiting for?!
June Thomas, Slate Magazine, about the perkygoth from NCIS, November 2011.
I do not understand this sentence.
a good response to the question “how old are you?” is something along the lines of “dunno i stopped counting after the first few centuries”
and it needs to be said seriously without smiling or humor or as casually as possible and followed by “so anyway” and a subject change as if it’s completely normal
I did this once and my friend, without missing a single beat, turns around and says “For the last time, you’re 1206. Why I even bother…”
What Goths find funny can be a little disconcerting to others.
Do not trust vampires pointing out things.
"I’m only wearing black until they invent something darker."
So I just noticed the intro to Sisters of Mercy’s Blood Money sounds almost identical to the intro from Specimen’s Returning From A Journey, which came out two years prior. This isn’t the first time I saw Eldritch using a strangely familiar intro, like how First and Last and Always sounds like this song by a Romanian prog-folk band my father listened to.
Long story short, my new favorite game is “What Song Did Andrew Gank This Intro From”.
Bauhaus ‘Vintage’ Merchandise
Ok, but occasionally a Peter Murphy shirt will implode from irony so chose your Bauhaus merch wisely if you must.
Nick Cave, 1992
Here we see a young Nick Cave begging for a porn stache.
A set from yesterday.
If you don’t out grow being Goth you’ll always been single and lonely… everyone knows that.
Crows are scary
- use tools
- Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
- Have huge brains for birds
- like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
- They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
- they are scary smart at solving puzzles
- some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
- they can remember faces
- SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
- They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.
/Well A group of them isn’t called a ‘Murder’ for no reason you know.
Pfft “scary” more like hella awesome
Crows are the shit man, i love them
They can also bring murdered guitarists back to life.
