Gothiness: 10 Sweatiness: 10
I thought I was bringing the world a much-needed service with this blog. And then I found THIS http://www.gothcruise.com/. These uber-Goths are actually living the nightmare! I could write for hours about how superb this is, and how we all, each and every Goth on the planet, should attend this irony-laden event, but my words pale into insignificance in the face of such awesome Gothness. I choose a quote from their marvellous FAQ, which sums up the very essence of my mission: "We find that the people who most enjoy the cruise are those in the scene who aren’t terrified by the ‘daystar’ and/or are comfortable using “Goth Block” (SPF 30,001) to keep from getting an embarrassing tan... This is vacation after all. You aren't expected to be uncomfortable 24/7."
Genius on so many levels, not least of all the first recorded naming of the Sun as the "Daystar." I assume they'll be docking at Martha's Harbour.
UPDATE: And they've done a movie! a full length one! (don't worry, this is just the trailer)
