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!

Gothiness: Off the scale Sweatiness: 7
All right, maybe more psychobilly / horror rock / something I'm too old to have heard of than Goth, but definitely trippy. And check out the wheels! Prizes for anyone who can tell me what the fuck the plot is about.

I love this, so much. Way more than I should. I think my addiction to complete nonsense is largely to blame.

Coffin Cases are awesome. When I found out they make a purse, I had to have one.

I can't figure out what the plot is, either.

Does it need a plot?

Grand Guignol meets Duane Eddy meets Electric 6 meets Richard O'Brien.

Plot? PLOT?!!??! We don't need no STINkIN" PLOT!!!!

As for the music, I'd call it "Surf-A-Billy" meets "Queasy-Listening".

Ha! Not to spoil your fun, but it was actually cold that day. I was wearing a coat in between takes.

Obviously a goth passed out on acid while watching Elvira and had just finished reading edgar allen poe.

I love the fog, or probably smog -- perfect.
