Warning: Possible Goth Triggers

SAVE ME, GOTHTRIGGERS. 

Wait a minute… I take back that reaction gif! That’s your present, not your future!

Tough love.

Tough love.


Even before I was in the scene, I had chronically floofy hair.  It was really just an inevitability.  I SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE WARNING SIGNS. 

Aww, you look like on of the triplets on Brave as a teenager! ^-^

To the Eldergoths and Trads of Tumblr specifically: Before you start swinging your canes around saying “back in my day…,” let me say that these are subgenres brought up to bring distinction between the different sounds that all fall under Gothic Rock. You and I both agree that The Mission…

No, no, ignore this guy and listen to everythingisgoth. 

Those guys are completely serious, unlike this joker. I mean, we all know Shock Rock like Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, and Gwar is synonymous with Goth.

That’s why KISS are the grandfathers of Goth.

Take this if you want to live.

you. are. adorable.
Just take the medicine, its for your own good.
One day you’ll lose your mind, give up, and become a skater, or lion-taming accountant or something. Then my work will be done… well, with you anyhow.

I... I made ginger bats for Christmas. My condition is getting worse. HELP.

If your cookie-cutters are non-conformists…

I've been diagnosed as a Deathrocker. Is it fatal?

Possibly.

It is much more serious than your average Joe and Jane Nightraven; I think the only thing more fatal is being a Glam Rocker… like one of the four left on the planet who aren’t David Bowie.

You need to get one of those dumpsters your local sanitation department loans out and takes away and fill it with the following:

ALL OF YOUR

  • patches
  • needles, thread, that tomato looking pin cushion
  • safety pins (yes, those your various body parts count)
  • boots, all the boots
  • jean and leather jackets
  • anything and everything with tears in it. Even the couch.
  • tights - of any kind
  • burn the fishnets, and stand back as vapors of Johnny Slut may arise
  • this may be the hardest part so be strong: ALL OF YOUR HAIR PRODUCT. I know that’s harsh, but this is a matter of life or undeath. The glue too. 

You may need to go into hair product withdrawl, and be rehabilitated to learn to live with hair that moves again.

The first time a breeze runs through rehabilitated hair, its common for former Deathrockers to start screaming about spiders on their skull and start pulling their hair out or setting things on fire. That’s basically how Prodigy started.

Hey, honestly, we both know even joining a band like that would be a huge first step for you. 

One day at a time.

Good luck!

ElderGoth people problems: When an 18 year old articulates something about your own goddamn music better than you ever could.

No that’s good. Its great. Great that the kids are paying attention and… there are smart kids in the scene… I mean getting into it, and that they are listening to the music and… yeah. Good, that’s good, good for him. Yeah, that’s- I have a rope and chair to attend to, excuse me.
