The Null Device

"My life is a dark pit of darkness!"

Because it's Soft Target Day today: True fact: as well as the weblog meetup, Melbourne has the third largest Goth Meetup in the world, behind only Toronto and Houston. (Houston? Not New Orleans or Seattle or some place?). Come along and you can hope to meet cool, interesting people like the following:
I am a child of the grave. Interested to meet you... *In My shallow grave in hell My soul and I are one*
hey u goths out there! my name is Sandra and i am 13, i am getting a nose ring and my mum wont let me get a lip ring but wen i get 1 im gonna get a chain and connect it 2 my ear. that pic isnt me but i wish it waz.
Hi all, I'm Laura, a 14 year old Goth and live in Mentone, Melbourne, Australia. I'm anxious to meet other Goths like myself, and hopefully a Goth boi. One of my favourite movies is Queen Of The Damned, and I love the taste of blood, yum yum! :P

I know, taking the piss out of goths is (to steal a phrase from P.J. O'Rourke) like hunting dairy cows with a high-powered rifle and sniper scope. Though it's better to go goth clubbing than baby seal clubbing, I say.

Hey, at least dairy cows can break your ribs if you get stuck between one and a fence. I doubt goths even have the strength to hit anyone with a flower.

These sound like pretty crap goths, anyway. Real goths are supposed to be misanthropes or something, I hear.

Your not a real Goth unless you have a cape!

Here are some real Goths.

I thought the cape thing mainly applied to progrock fans. I suppose they'd be hippies who wash and read Neitzsche.

Maybe it was an Adelaide thing - lots of Goths used to wear capes here.

Want to say something? Do so here.
