Which isn't a bad thing. There's no more good music (and I say that as a professional Goth/Industrial DJ with five+ residencies), the old bands haven't put out anything new save for one, possibly two tracks.

Where does Collide fit into all this?
[www.alfa-matrix.com image 480x720]


I'm serviced by Alfa-Matrix and Metropolis. A lot of their stuff (as I have reported back to them) is becoming more and more hit and miss. I like their track 'Euphoria' (The Further Mix) - but it's seriously iffy dance music when performing at a club.

The important thing to remember is that this is an opinion. It's not personal. Some people love grapes, I'm not partial to them. That's OK.

But, I'm hired for a reason, and I seem to be able (knock on wood) to feel what people are feeling. You can have the best steak you've ever had, but serving it to a bunch of vegans won't work, no matter how good it is.

It can't be an accident that World Goth Day is on Morrisey's birthday.

Have had a couple of high school dread lords (guy and girl) that lives down the street walking to and from the bus stop every day. On days when it's so hot you can fry eggs on the black top, they are in full dress with long black coats and those tall black boots with thick soles and heels. Sometimes I have my dog tied in the front so she can watch people go up and down the street and they'll sometimes stop and pet her. I guess my dog doesn't mind the goth look. 5 minutes later the deaf and dumb guy comes walking by and my dog wants to eat him.

Emo is not goth, either. Goth died the day Peter Murphy bleached his hair.

SweetSilverBlues: LarryDan43: SweetSilverBlues: Sorry, cutting is not a goth thing. That's emo.

*delicate shudder*

Please try again.

I believe there is some overlap there.

A bit, but (to me) goth was more about the physical style, affectations of romantic tragedy and general angst.

Emo...well emo has borrowed a lot from goth, but from what I understand they all are empty inside just cuz and they cut themselves to feel something, *dramatic pause* anything. Nihilism lite, if you will.

Goths are creative enough to at least come up with reasons for the angst. Silly, Edgar Allan Poe reasons, but reasons.

An emo wouldn't know a bottle of absinthe if they broke one to cut themselves with it.

/subculture snob wars
//hee hee hee


"Emo" started as a music thing. I realize the younguns then went on to apply it to social outsiders and hipsters, but it just means someone who listened to the "Emo" genre of folk-rock that existed between, oh, 2004-2006 maybe? It wasn't a music fad that had too long of a run before commentators started folding it into the generic "hipster" label. I've only ever known one person who ever called herself Emo, and she was funny, driven, and generally upbeat, while dressing in the style we call hipster today.

zato_ichi: 1. I was goth in the 1980s (when it REALLY existed), and no, it didn't look like vampires, The Crow, or any of the stupid face-painted crap today. Goth looked like punk with more black, less dayglo, and a penchant for monochrome stripes or classic clothing. Eric Draven wasn't goth, Allison (the basketcase) from the move The Breakfast Club was goth.

2. That fat blob of goo in the photo is NOT GOTH. Those are Juggalos. Please please please do not confuse Juggalos with goths. They're nothing alike and they're a couple generations apart.

3. Goth does not exist today, nor has it since the early 1990s. What exists today is something else that is often mistaken for being goth by younger people who don't realize that goth was an era, not a fashion choice. It was a subculture based on creativity (and filled primarily with artists), and NOT something you could buy at the mall. If you wear it without making it or altering it yourself, it's not goth; It's mall-punk, at best. It's cheap-ass vampire baby at worst. It's emo leftovers at Hot Topic at very worst.

4. I can believe Jen Aniston was goth. She's an artistic person, and it would have been a natural fit for her.

5. Despite what you say, the Mod movement ended in the early 1970s, and it was primarily an English thing; Didn't happen much in America. Mod eventually blossomed into Glam.


Yup. After you grew up, no one was ever a goth again, nor did the sub-culture grow in anyway. It simply ceased to exist once you were no longer part of it. As long as there are folks self-identifying as "goth" and putting in the work you described, there will still be "goths".

There can still be people that claim the label while the creative or innovative types have moved on.

For the most part, once it devolves to bickering about what is or isn't a part of the movement or if the genre is dead or not, well, part of it is.

ph0rk: I have this theory that chicks in the 7-9 range that hang out in genre subcultures (pick one) do it because of the insane chick to guy ratio which means a 7 can act as biatchy insane as a 9 in the subculture, and a 9 could act like a 12.


I guess it isn't really a theory so much as a more or less demonstrable fact.

I'm arguing that women aren't uniformly mercenaries out to rob you, or harpies out to emasculate men, and that maybe the women you've known haven't behaved in whatever way you consider appropriate towards you because 1) they weren't telepaths and 2)you didn't warrant it, not because they were "biatches". I'm also mocking you for making what is the basic argument of every "nice guy" on the internet.
