Gothiness: 6 Sweatiness: 8
Like a Dark Cowboy version of John Cleese, OLVR here reminds us that sitting in a beach bar sipping a cool beer is a right to be enjoyed by all of us, Goths and vanillas alike. Not strictly Goth, but extra points for the pimp moustache.
Thought for the day: If I could have invented one thing, it would be the white plastic chair. They're everywhere. When the arockalypse comes, only cockroaches and white plastic chairs will remain.
Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!
