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!


We're Bringing Gothyback!

Justin Timberlake officially likes this blog! Justin. Timberlake. Eat that Tiffins Boys School, I TOLD you I didn't need A Levels! Maybe he can tell his celeb homies about it! Maybe P Diddums will check me out! Anyone know of any other celebrities who think it's funny? Zoe Ball? Roger de Courcey? Spread the word meejahores - we have to get a submission from Ian Astbury!

That's a lot more important than Justin Timberlake, Insults. May the black crow of Goth alight upon your shoulder at your slightest whim.

Actually someone called Kiira Mancasola writing on JT's blog likes your blog. Maybe JT told her to say it. Maybe he doesn't give a crap. Who knows?

Amanda Palmer talked about it in a blog of hers this week.
