Well, look at that. Another person on the internet with opinions! This blog will focus largely on the goth subculture, being goth in a small town (hence my username) other music genres, and my opinions on random subjects. I may also touch on other alternative subcultures and counter-culture in general.I've started a small business with … Continue reading Introduction
Been a bit since I've posted a longer entry. Things have been hectic, as per usual. I became a married woman on October 13, 2019. (I'll link the photos below) With that, business plans and moving yet again left little time for blogging. I'm back with something a little different than my normal post topics. … Continue reading Hail Satan: Change and My So-Called “Religious” Journey
I did it. I have found the absolute worst definition of goth that has ever existed and that's saying something, seeing as I come across terrible definitions of goth all the time. "Goth is a mindset, "goth is a fashion," "goth is Victorian fashion," "goth is about finding beauty in darkness." None of those hold … Continue reading The WORST Definition of Goth Ever
I've made the case several times that goth is, in fact, a music based subculture. So the question of whether, or not deaf people can be goth is a valid one. However, the question seems to only come up in debates over the importance of music to the scene. It's typically when babybats and poseurs … Continue reading Can Deaf People Be Goth?
Pics from last week in the Silas Wright Cemetery It's been a while since my last post due to the move, but we're now fully moved into Potsdam. We're basically reestablishing ourselves as a business in a new town, so things have been pretty hectic. This is why I haven't been able to post until … Continue reading Ask Me About My Goth Agenda
Alas! My fiance is working, and I have no goths to celebrate world goth day with. Woe is me! (hand staple forehead) I shall temporarily quench my loneliness by providing life updates. I will share some photos of me, and share a bit of music as well. Okay, I'm done being sarcastically over-dramatic. So, my … Continue reading Happy World Goth Day!
The Un-Goth Confessions tag. It's an oldie, but a goodie. For the uniformed, this tag is a bit of a joke that gives a chance for goths to talk about their interests outside the subculture. My motive for this post is to have some fun, and add my two-cents on something that bothers me. I'm … Continue reading My Un-Goth Confessions
Here's some random updates to be filler for my next full length post: Our business was featured in the local news paper today! Yes, those still exist. Small town, after all. We are so happy and grateful. Every day we get bigger and gain more knowledge. We will continue our goal to bring goth to … Continue reading Getting Noticed! (Featured in the Local News Paper)
I've mentioned before that my fiance and I have been running a small fashion/jewelry business. We make our own handcrafted jewelry and sewing notions, as well as modify thrifted clothes. On top of that, we sell vintage items. We've mainly been running it out of crafting fairs, the local farmer's market, etc; for the past … Continue reading The Mannequin Is Inappropriate! (Reactions to Our Goth Business)
It's been said many times already, but I should say it here: Goth is a music based subculture. Music is the foundation of goth, be it post-punk, goth rock, deathrock, darkwave, etc. I don't believe you can be goth without liking the music. To me, it's like saying you're punk when you don't listen to … Continue reading ‘Not Goth’ Is Not An Insult.
On the anniversary of our engagement, my fiance is going to embarrass me a bit by sharing how we got to where we are now. Take it away, Jason! Hi! I'm Jason, Taylor's fiance.I've known Taylor for about three and a half years now, two and a half of which have been of us in … Continue reading Our Engagement Story
