Elder goth here. Hung out at ManRay when I lived in the Boston area back in the day. Remember going to art shows at Fools Mansion in Salem. I spend more time in NY these days and still shop at Trash & Vaudeville every time I'm in the village and I'm glad it still exists even though Obscura doesn't.

Anyway you know what's really goth? Just being yourself and not judging people by their taste in music or clothing. Like that's fine when you are a 15 year old figuring out your place in the world, I guess. But if you are a 30 year old adult and you still sneer at people for not fitting every cartoonish stereotype of your subculture you need to seriously get a grip on your priorities. I love me some Cruxshadows but I will jam to Britney any day of the week.

It is okay to like more than one thing. There's actually an absurdly huge amount of crossover between fans of goth aesthetics and Disney theme parks. Who knew? Also, many of us have jobs. The guy who runs one of the biggest goth club nights in my area is a veteran and an ER surgical nurse. He's also a sports fan.

It's almost as if people can be multifaceted.

I used to have that on a t-shirt and one day I wore it to the local Renn Faire. I was sitting down on a bench with my friend and some goth kids walked by. One of them stopped to read the shirt and just said, "Huh?" There was an elderly woman sitting next to me and she leaned forward, read my shirt, and just started laughing! She then nudged her friend who also read my shirt, looked at the confused goth and starting laughing, too. I felt a little bad for the goth but the reaction from the two older ladies was just so delightful.

I was goth from the late 80s till the late 90s still went to the odd club or show for ages after that. Indeed saw peter Murphy just a few years ago in sf.

I was in goth bands recorded some CD did some touring banged a few groupies was a good time.

A lot of really creative people in the scene. A lot of drama queens and stupid pretentious dipshiats too.

Maybe it was just coz I was a goth in the 80s and 90s when there weren't as many fattys around in general but fat goths was not my experience.  The chicks were hot dirty and easy.

and then this paved the way to acid house and the mid90s race scene and techno as arming van Buren knows it. Weird to think Above and Beyond trace their heritage to nitzer and 242.

And surely homage ought also be paid to Skinny Puppy, the evil mad geniuses of the electronic world?

Physical attraction is for normal people, it is better to have a union based on a shared understanding that all is futile and we are all just corpses waiting to die.


Is what goth guys say to goth girls to get them in bed and what goth girls say to put off normal guys who say they are hot.

Every group of weirdos looks silly. They take on a new identity,put in effort to show the outgroups they won't confirm, and the ingroup they belong.

From that they fill, or attempt to, some void. They want the sense of kinship and belonging that the "normal" world denied them.

So I'm not gonna attack goths. Equally messed up people exist in all manner of less unpopular, more acceptable groups. People who lose their identity to a sports group or team, or a frat, skaters, bicycling, etc.

Hell, I'd be a member of one of those groups to fill my void, but I'm lazy and apathetic about my problems. I show the world I don't care with cargo shorts.

Peter Steele.  RIP.  He was one of those guys like David Bowie who was so damn good looking he convinced a lot of straight guys he was hot. (Productivity warning for TVTropes link.)

Also, he posed naked for Playgirl once.

geekbikerskum: psykick dancehall: a few years ago i saw nick cave and mark lanegan do a duet on this song, with mark playing the role of the father. one of my absolute favorite live moments i have experienced

Nice.  Then there's Nixa doing a duet on "Where the Wild Roses Grow", with Blixa Bargeld singing Kylie Minogue's part.

And with Nitzer Ebb's "Join In the Chant" plus Front 242's "Headhunter", we have the birth of EBM--Electronic Body Music, which ended up taking over dance floors in goth clubs.  (The video for Front 242's "Headhunter" depicts a topless woman for a few seconds and is thus NSFW, hence no link.)

and then this paved the way to acid house and the mid90s race scene and techno as arming van Buren knows it. Weird to think Above and Beyond trace their heritage to nitzer and 242.

And surely homage ought also be paid to Skinny Puppy, the evil mad geniuses of the electronic world? That those kooky Canucks were able to create things like First Aid, Warlock, assimilate, testure using those hella primitive 1st generation synths is nothing short of brilliant.  A lot of their stuff holds up pretty well to this day

The goth dudes I worked with in the mid-90s were way into Skinny Puppy. And also Type O Negative.

C'mon, once you hear their version of "Cinnamon Girl," it's hard to go back.

the highlight of your cd collection is a bauhaus cover comp? Really?

Of course. That's exactly what I said. *eyeroll*

just seemed a weird choice to post that of all the corpus of the genre.

I was in 2 of the bands contributing to that cd. Heh.

Okay, gotta ask. Which 2? It's a great soundtrack.

TA and F&tM. At one point or another I played in every band on the Tess label aside from Autumn.  Verrrrry early 90s. Fun times as a very young man.

I loved that label! IIRC they were the first label to send me promos back when I was started djing. Still have my cd of Walk Softly A Dream Lies Here with the funky cut out cover that always seemed like a puzzle to get back into the jewel case


that makes me so happy yo hear that you have that. :) Only the first pressing had that as it was pricey to print.
