"No, it's Liisa, with two i's. I can tell you were picturing it with one 'i'. It has two."

I dated her. Seriously.


Cool, so did I. Liisa gets around!

Goths having an image problem?

If only there was some kind of image service catering to Goths...

drxym: So is there a list of official goths or something? Did Lanza let his membership elapse or something?


So Ryan Lanza, Adam Lanza's brother, was initially named as the culprit.

I wonder what Tony Lanza thinks of all this...

St_Francis_P: Try telling them you're an atheist, or (worse) a pagan. I've seen some unfortunate conversations that way.


Well there's your problem. How about have a conversation with someone and pretend they don't give a flying fark about what you believe or don't believe in. If you have to label yourself in every conversation, it might be why people look at you funny.

This is why we can't have nice things.

St_Francis_P: DeathByGeekSquad: St_Francis_P: The My Little Pony Killer: People still define other groups as "goth" or "jock" after they graduate high school?

Yeah, lots of middle-aged sorts still go to goth clubs etc. For one thing, if you're atheist or pagan etc., it's one place no one will look at you funny. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that some mindless reporters thought he was somehow goth.

I never knew I was supposed to look a certain way if I was an atheist...

Oh, that's right, I'm one of those people that waves my middle finger as forced styles. Go fark yourself, I wear what I want, not what my interests tell me I should wear.

I have no idea what you're talking about, or why you're addressing me with it, so here's a kitten:

Nobody looks at me funny, and I'm an atheist. I don't stick out from the general population. I don't need to go to some place special to be in a place where no one will look at me funny, because I don't believe in the idea that because I'm an atheist, I need to dress and act differently than others.

Also, came for Gothapotamus, and left disappointed.

In other news, speaking of militant atheists, I can't wait to go home and have another bottle of my quadrupel. Although it IS a bit too sweet for my tastes, but it is otherwise pretty damn good.

Actual conversation whilst passing through one of the Monopoly property states

>"Hi, welcome! How long will you be staying?"
"Thank you! Through to Tuesday or so"
>"Oh how nice. Have you found a church yet?"
"Oh no thank you, we won't need one. We don't go."
>*icy stare* "here are your keys."

Atheism and agnosticism are the only mainstream belief systems you have to still have to conceal in the west.

You were morons then. You are morons now. But you no longer hold primacy. Today we have Hipsters, who are almost as big a bunch of douches as you were in your heyday. So, you can imagine that we don't much care what you think.

Speaking as a post-Goth, (you're never really post-Goth). We don't shoot people. We shoot amazing photography--whimsically. We're artists who are not afraid of the dark. We're colorblind and don't want to look ridiculous. We're melancholy, with a bit of morbid, and occasionally dreary. We are many things, and we are not totally afraid of colours (we use british spellings for stylistic reasons), we just like to fit in (with our own). We are usually bad dancers (but sometimes amazing world class dancers), and we like music with strong bass and dark tones. We would like to regulate the wearing of black, but understand that this is not as important as other issues and don't push our agenda.

Oh, the 80s. How I miss you. We had a few in my school who dressed like that. Not sure if they'd REALLY be considered 'goth.' A couple of them were really into the Cure, so I donno. They were otherwise really cool (but sometimes aloof) people.

So... You friends say "Hey, meet St. Francis. He's an ATHIEST!!!!" Or do they say "Hi, I'm St Francises friend and I'M AN ATHEIST!!!"

Either way, it doesn't change anything. No one is going to look at you funny because you're an atheist. They're going to look at you funny because you dress like a retard and are an egregious attention whore.

assjuice: A goth teabagger - that is an unlikely combination.


I dunno if that's so far fetched. They're human and personal opinions will vary. I've definitely met republican goths and even goths with opinions that could be considered Randian.

If you shift from goth to the dark neo-folk realm you'll see people into the Nazi aesthetic most notably the musicians Death in June and Boyd Rice.

And no I'm not equating the new Tea Party with Nazis... I was just saying that there are people of all types out there.
