Warning: Possible Goth Triggers
soulbots:

"All my life I’ve been searching, wondering, talking without meaning or context. It has been nothing. Yes, I say this without bitterness or self-reproach, as I know that almost all of people’s lives are made this way. My heart is empty. And emptiness is a mirror turned to my own face. I see myself and am seized with disgust and fear. Through my indifference for people, I’ve been placed outside of their society. Now I live in a ghost world, enclosed in my dreams and imaginings.” 
- Ingmar Bergman, The Seventh Seal

Some people mistake this film for a 1930’s German horror film. In reality, it was made in 1957 in Sweden where it’s still considered a real gut-buster.

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.

The Real Doctor Frankenstein

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?!

Abby may look like a freak, but she’s a church-going patriot.

I do not understand this sentence. 

If you deny being goth you are literally the most goth person in the universe.

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.

Scientists have developed a material so dark that you can’t see it.

"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”.

Ok, but occasionally a Peter Murphy shirt will implode from irony so chose your Bauhaus merch wisely if you must.
