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!

Too easy a target, from the 18 hole DMs right up to the mohawk-crop circa 1992, not to mention the fact you're on a BEACH. I open the floor to you, dear reader. Do your worst!

They've almost certainly dumped the nanobots in the ocean by now. Trust me, and you might live.

I saw someone at the beach the other day wearing an oversized Nightmare Before Chrismas hoodie, baggy black pants, and black skater shoes. Suprised she didn't pass out.

it's reminiscent of a john basedown advertisement... minus the showing off of abs and all (can't afford to tan those babies after spending the entire winter paling them up)

Psh, I'd hit that!

If he is into women, mind you. The pose makes it a little dubious.
