Mope around in black clothing listening to Marylin Manson and other shiatty pop-goth music?
Marylin Manson is NOT goth. And most goths find the morons who pretend to me vampires rather embarassing. And most goths don't larp.
The goth and vampire scenes are 2 seperate things. There are lots of things to mock goths about, but please get your facts straight.
That's why I said pop-goth... Please pay attention.
Sorry about that, I'm gonna blame this on this fever I have, I think it's cooking my brain. I think it;s time for NyQuil and bed.
As a non-freaky goth, people who draw on their faces (like with a marker) piss me the hell off. Especially when they do it in a feeble attempt at being gothic.
Yeah, I also want to slap those morons. They look like freakin mimes! Also on my to slap list, people in crow makeup, people who think I want to hear their poetry and young wannabes who have never actually read a real gothic novel (No, interview with the vampire doesn't count).
zoob: That's a hard question, ask 2 people and you'll get 2 different answers. But I'll give it a shot.
Goth is an offshoot of the punk scene. It was (and for the most part, still is) about the music. Bands like Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Sisters of Mercy and so on.
Most goths are well read, bright, creative people. Dispite what most people say, most are not mopey and depressed all the time. Some are downright perky.
Goths tend to embrace a darker aesthetic, and a dark sense of humor. Most wear black, or dark colors, but not all.
Many are influenced by the preraphaelites, a group of artists from 1848. The preraphaelites rebelled against the opressive culture of the time. They were also called gothics, at the time gothic meant anything not classical. This is why the term was applied to the modern goths.
Well, that should get you started.
Abby, what do you mean by a "real gothic novel"? Gothic novels and the gothic subculture--to my knowledge--have little to do with each other.
Most goths I know have read the classic gothic novels, Of course there is a connection, look at the way we dress!
Goths tend to like creepy stories, so of course we'd read this stuff.
somefool: Cwmni Drwg means "Evil Company" or "Vile Firm" in Welsh (?). What a name.
enave: ChewbaccaJones He then locked all of the doors and executed one member of each family to show them he was seriousMy question is, how do you just sit there while this crazy guy is murdering people? What do you do, turn to your family and say "oh boy, our turn is next!" I'd rather die trying to protect my family than just sit there.
