Ugh. I grew out of the "Breathed imitation" with my work almost ten years ago...

Heh. One of the characters is named Cutter. heh heh heh.
2001-08-14 03:35:12 PM  
well ain't that the goth calling the metal black?

2001-08-14 03:35:16 PM  
Straight up sacrilege.
2001-08-14 03:38:22 PM  
Sacrilege, Homage. . . you decide for yourself.

I thought it was a riot and am going to buy some more books.

I saw this a loong time ago, it pretty much sucks.

France...ohhhh, you know the rest by now.
2001-08-14 04:28:12 PM  
Yawn. Yay. I didn't know goths read comic strips, classic or otherwise. That implies they have a sense of humor.

ObTroll: Anne Rice sucks too.
2001-08-14 04:31:17 PM  
REALLY, REALLY, REALLY crappy poetry and crap. I hate Goths.

*hint* if you're a goth, kill yourself. You deserve it. Either that, or become Mormon.

wollowing in my sadness
my sadness so like the dark
a thin veil of reality
pulsing through my rictus veins

I am goth... death will welcome me in its own time
2001-08-14 04:53:06 PM  
Goths piss me off. I hope they all go to heaven cause I know they would hate that.
2001-08-14 05:17:24 PM  
i'm a goth and i think you people (for the most part) are about the most closed minded arrogant naeandrethals ive "met" in a long time.
InjunAndrew: why would a goth hate going to heaven? i my self am an atheist so i have no personal opinion but i have many very religious friends who i imagine want to go to heaven.
Octerdoctopus: why do you hate goths? do you know if these people really are goths? why do they deserve to Die? yeah a lot of goths write bad poetry but at least they are willing to try.
Harimwakairi: goth is a selfmocking subculture. if you put a bunch of depressed acting black clad people in a room its only so long before they start laughing. and not all goths are depressed. perkygoths arent. punkgoths usualy arent. so are alot of other goth types, but this just makes what you guys are say worse because its just further generilization. some perky goths get depressed and mopey goths cheer up.
do all of you people fell this way about other subcultures? what about races or religions, or do you only hate goths and why? i am really curious on this one...

You're a goth? Wow, a brooding, tortured soul. Nobody understands you. You're "different". Run, spread the gospel of your culture! We're all ignorant of the sub-genres. You must educate us. That surely must be why so many loathe and fear you.
2001-08-14 05:49:02 PM  
A lot of goth chicks are hot...that's all I know. And they wear fishnet and stuff.
2001-08-14 05:59:16 PM  
Yaysnfekshun: no im not a tourtured soul, and i cant remember the last time i brooded. Yes im diffrent. i do find dark things interseting. And you are completly you "loathe and fear" goths because you know nothing about us. but dont worry its not really your fault. its human nature to fear and hate what is diffrent or new to you. And you are right again, very few people do under stand me, because i hold radical political and religious views and i'm a free thinker and not just another sheep in the herd.
but i will not "spread the gospel" of my culture when so many others have done so well. here are a few
and prob. the best
Lalalala: you are absaolutly right my friend.
2001-08-14 05:59:26 PM  

A lot of goth chicks are hideous and 300 lbs, too. Not a lot in between.
2001-08-14 06:02:42 PM  

maybe this is vaguely related to the topic.

Ode to Satan by Bastard Francais
Satan, o Satan, Father of Deceit,
Lord of pure evil, homey on the street,
As you wield malediction, as you eat blighted bread,
Do you think of God, and smashing his head?
Diabolus, Ahriman, Tempter of Fools,
Ruler of Inferno, breakin' all da r00ls,
In the darkness of Hades, in your cottage of fear,
Do you bed evil babez and drink evil beer?
Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Sower of Hate,
Betrayer of Humanity, groovin' dope state,
You lie to the innocent, you torment and harass,
I offer my worship, you really kick ass!

-i have issues.
2001-08-14 06:07:10 PM  

I don't mind Visigoths, it's the Ostrogoths I hate.

You know, all those attempts to sack Gaul.
2001-08-14 06:07:32 PM  
Gaul surrenders. Yeah, I thought of that, too.
2001-08-14 06:08:02 PM  
Anyone remember that goth show thing on saturday night live?
The goth guy getting his ass kicked by his brother all the time and the show sucking real bad. LOL

Back when I was a teenager and really into that "costume as an identity" phase, we just called them "dirge rockers" and they sat and listened to joy division and killing joke all the time. How or why they felt the need to start writing poetry about black roses and ethereal spirits I don't know.
2001-08-14 06:15:27 PM  
ANYONE who dares besmirch the good name of Bloom County shall encounter my wrath. (That goes for all of you with Peeing Calvin stickers, too. I've got my eye on you!)
2001-08-14 06:17:17 PM  
fark has become too "PC", I feel that if you hate goths, say so! But if you offend someone, they shouldn't complain, They should just make fun of whatever race, religon, sexuality or gender you are. This would make things more interesting and people wouldn't get there feelings hurt. Now a-days people on fark are too scared off being labeled a "troll". If someone says you are a troll, just go off on them and insult whatever race, religon, sexuality or gender the accusers are. There: Problem Solved
2001-08-14 06:28:54 PM  
Its hard to hate something pathetic. Let's see- "I want to reject conformity by conforming to a smaller social clique!"
2001-08-14 06:36:10 PM  
Ninjas blow!
2001-08-14 06:43:25 PM  
I don't call myself a goth though i have a lot of goth qualities. I dye my hair strange colors because it makes me happy. I wear dark lip stick, have very pale skin and wear big heavy boots. The smell of leather turns me on and I an enamoured with vampires, though i dont think i am one nor do i believe they exist. Because of how I look and some of the things I say people would categorize me as goth, though.. really I think I'm just me.

Because I can identify with many goths I feel that i can safely say be seated and rotate to you who say that people who look and dress like me are ugly.
2001-08-14 06:44:29 PM  

Jesus Christ, I'm trying, OK!?!?!

I hate Mormons above all, Christians, white people with dreadlocks, American motorcycles, Rosie O'Donnell, women's basketball, Disney, McDonald's Starbucks, Goths, Aberzombie and biatch, Destinys Child, Regis, Burger King, pollution, George W., hondas with those annoying exhaust pipes that don't do anything, NASCAR, people who wear visors, the Backdoor Boys, The Bible (except as a piece of literature), the 700 Club, Brandy, local TV news, Izzy's Pizza (for all you in the Pac NW), people from California who move to other places, Massholes and NYC dickheads.

I love my AK-47.
2001-08-14 06:55:28 PM  
wow thats a long list of people to hate there OcterDoctopus. I find its usually way too much effort to pick out individual groups and things to hate. I just hate everyone. Much easier than categorizing my hate. Saves me time and effort.

what would tunak tunak tun do??
2001-08-14 07:01:44 PM  
Damn Octer, i moved from Cali to the Mediocre Northwest a few years back, but you'll be happy to know I'm back in sunny SoCal.
2001-08-14 07:42:44 PM  
Carter Black Whew! Disaster narrowly averted! Glad to hear it!

Toriko Damn good plan. Hate everything. But I enjoy keeping my hatred in focus- that way you can turn your whole life into a war of attrition with the rest of the world.

It's the reason I like visitng Utah: There's just so much to hate!!!
2001-08-14 08:00:05 PM  
Toriko: Gotta agree with you. It was always funny. Since I enjoyed wearing black, boots, have dark hair, and listened to music that can be considered on the darker side. People always used to consider me goth. After a while the stereotypes get to you and for the longest time the only people who would understand were the goths. Funniest part thats out alot of the "goths" get started. Pretty much get sick of people treating them like crap because of the way they like to look and sooner or later they find a group of people that are going through the same thing.
Usually the only thing that they start out having in common is the way they dress.

Ack.. I'm ranting. It's 5:00 I'm outta here. Time to go home.
2001-08-14 08:07:58 PM  
Am I too late for the hatetrain? Damn!

Looks like all the good ones are taken...

Okay, I hate octerdoctopus.
2001-08-14 08:20:45 PM  
Johnnythefarkicidalmaniac (nice name, by the way.. Nny rocks!).. i'm a bit gothy myself, though i think the term "rivethead" (f242, fla, tkk, kmfdm) is more fitting for me, if we really *must* play the label game.

anyway, what i wanted to say was not to worry about some of the immature dickheads that are on here. i'm sure you've been made fun of just as much as i have for being "goth" already, so just ignore them... besides, those who've been giving us shiat are most likely a bunch of beer-chugging middle-aged rednecks anyway.
2001-08-14 08:27:18 PM  
I farking hate onions.
2001-08-14 08:30:49 PM  

That's a stereotype and I'm sick of it. I think I better go poke holes in my face and listen to The Dead Dark Evil Vampire Band of Doom.
2001-08-14 08:36:11 PM  
Colonel: All that hate'll burn you up, boy.
Robert: It keeps me warm at night.
(Red Dawn, 1984)
2001-08-14 08:51:02 PM  
Injunandrew: you really crossed the line dissing onions and The Dead Dark Evil Vampire Band of Doom. if you apologize, then i wont have to kill you in a duel to the death to restore the honor of onions and The Dead Dark Evil Vampire Band of Doom. (this is meant to be a joke. I'm not going to kill Injunandrew...probably)
2001-08-14 08:54:36 PM  

You're never too late for the Hate Train!!!!

I'm glad you hate me. Finally I am turning people around towards the wonderous ways of hate. I'm guessing you're Mormon. Ooops! You're Canadian!

2001-08-14 09:02:39 PM  
Time to whip out my dueling headress and my bow and arrow ;)

(I guess this is kind of an inside-joke, but someone might laugh at it.)
2001-08-14 09:07:16 PM  
Okay, Stick Ninja. I hate music elitists, people who are smarter than me, that old woman at the bank that never smiles, Bill Maher, most political parties, Australians..except a few, teenagers with too much money, people who confuse respect with pride and um, I'm sure there's a lot more. DOWN WITH AUSTRALIA.
2001-08-14 09:07:44 PM  
I want to start a new sub-culture devoted to zombies and people with chainsaw-arms. We'll call ourselves Ashes.

Scratch the bow and arrow, I'm bringing my BOOMSTICK!
2001-08-14 11:00:19 PM  
fawkin' mormons.

i dress in black, dye my hair, and have a dim outlook on life and even i hate goths.

open message to all goths:
wash your damn hair! if you are a guy you probably look like crap in makeup! if you are a girl, you probably look like crap in that hideous pancake makeup. stop asking me for change/cigarettes and get a damn job. don't pierce that! sisters of mercy was the last good goth band- deal with it. and get out of my way when i am walking down the street. oh, yeah, and your mangy dog is not cute, even with that spiked collar you paid too much for or stole and then have the nerve to ask me for change!
2001-08-14 11:04:03 PM  
wait, ocdoc: you hate white people with dreadlocks? i may have to withdraw my support from your anti-mormon crusade.
2001-08-14 11:30:53 PM  
Here's a wrench to throw into the gears of stereotyping goths. I'm an elder-goth.
Yep. A goth that's over the age of 30. Not only that, I'm an advertizing executive. I still wear black, even some of my business suits are black.
There are lots of us out there who don't wander around quoting Byron (even though he's very quotable) wear pancake makeup and eyeliner.
The Sisters were a great band who pioneered the movement, but London After Midnight and The Last Dance blow them away.
Goth is dying out. It was once an interesting little movement, but nowadays all you have left is the little club kiddies who are only posing and know nothing about the New Romantic movement.

"Onions makes me gassy..... but I eats 'em anyway!"- Brak
2001-08-14 11:35:49 PM  
oh, yeah. i forgot possibly the most important one of all.

mental illness is not desireable, enviable, good, fun, enlightening, or dramatic. mental illness is tragic, horrible, bad, and pathetic.
2001-08-14 11:50:31 PM  
I would be goth but it takes too much time and money to do my makeup, deck myself out in black (vinyl and leather are expensive), keep an online journal so everyone can see how much I suffer, and get into "what is goth" or "goth is dead" debates on the internet.

My underwear is black

goth chicks are cool!
2001-08-15 12:18:53 AM  
Johnnythefarkicidalmaniac: Don't take it too personally. Your average Farker hates Goths, Ravers, Mormons and France equally.
2001-08-15 12:20:17 AM  
BTW, Johnen Vasquez is hella funny. JTHM makes me giggle.
