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!


hosting disaster

Hopefully you've found me back here - well done if you have! I seem to have lost my domain url thanks to Blogger's frankly useless hosting service that doesn't tell you it's time to renew, and then doesn't give you any way at all to pay for another year without having a godaddy account number, which was never given in the first place. Now it seems the domain has been bought by another gothlover (or cybersquatting corporate bastard, one of the two). Hopefully I'll have the old site back up soon, in the meantime if anyone knows how to rescue an expired blogger domain name, please let me know!

Thank Goth I found you! I knew you wouldn't go gently into that good night.

After being crestfallen at seeing the domain was no more, I immediately went to the search engine and the blogspot account popped right up. Giddy-up!

Bring on the sweaty gothiness!

As a follower, I've been trying and trying and to access your site and keep coming up with that bogus website. I've missed the pics and the brilliant commentary. I'm so happy you're still up. Of the other people who have hijacked your site, bastards, the lot of them.

Well it could be worse, at lest it doesn't send you to a porn site.

Don't worry, I was able to find you after a google search which led me to this page.

stay the course. keep up the good fight. do not go gently into that good night. none of our comments are remotely helpful, are they? I think the answer will be found elsewhere--your concept seems to attract naught but technofools.

there's always re-naming the site:
ThisIsTheRealGothsInHotWeather.com. If you build it, we will come.
