Some of you may know that I’ve been asked to be apart of the Goths For Sophie Calendar for the year 2021. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of Sophie Lancaster then I have included some info from the official Goths for Sophie website:
“On 11 August 2007, Sophie Lancaster and her partner were attacked by a gang of teenagers in a park in Lancashire, England. Instead of fleeing, Sophie went to her partners aid. The couple were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious for nothing more than looking different. Sophie later died from her injuries. If anything positive is to come from her death, Sophie’s family and friends would like it to be you.

It is such a tragedy and such an insanely pointless thing to have happened. I’m glad that this cause exists so we can share this story. At the moment it seems our world is so full of heartache and is struggling to show it’s beauty to us. I don’t think I will ever be able to fully comprehend how someone can commit an act so heinous. Hopefully causes like this can remind us that even though very dark and tragic things happen, we can at least use the time we have now to bring awareness to this situation and prevent future events from occurring while sharing the memory of Sophie for years to come.

One of the most popular album associated with goth music, a pinnacle of effects laden sad music, a collection of Robert Smith’s tear-drenched jingles resulting from a midlife crisis…well maybe something like that.
Did you know I first started reviewing The Cure’s albums in 2015? I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years. I think outside of the podcast I’ve covered a total of 2 (Three Imaginary Boys & 17 Seconds), but I’ve done different books and other topics relating to the band. I’m always hesitant to cover their albums because it’s such a popular topic and they mean so much to fans.
These Goth Thrifting videos are a great opportunity for me to get out of the house and go places I haven’t been. I’ve been pretty surprised by some of the things I’ve found. I hope everyone is enjoying this series.
Dr.Sanders and Bryan continue their gaze into Peter Murphy’s indigo eyes by covering his albums from the mid 90’s to the early 2010’s. They will remain Unshattered in their opinions that will never turn to Dust.
Mak and I took a trip down to Seattle for the Seattle Gothic Picnic. It was a pretty warm that day. I think you can see my makeup slowly melting off my face at parts. Lakeview Cemetery is extremely beautiful. You only get to see a brief moment of it in the video as I’m randomly mumbling in the microphone, but it’s actually huge. I think this video turned out a little chaotic. I cut the footage waaayyy down to make it slightly more coherent. These types of videos are fun to make, but often times are time consuming to edit. There’s a massive amount of footage that needs to be edited into a coherent video.
Creating a video game review was surprisingly difficult. There was a lot more to cover than most of the other things I discuss. I actually started this video last year, but put it off because I really didn’t think anyone would be interested in this subject. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this different type of video.
I actually recorded the footage for this episode last year and put off finishing it in favor of other videos. You can actually see that my save file lists it as 9/1/2018. I was really hesitant to make a game review as it just isn’t something I’m used to creating.
He created some of the most beloved films among goths (also one of the most polarizing versions of Alice in Wonderland) so I thought I would share some of the products I’ve picked up over the years. These type of videos make me feel like I own too many things.
Dr.Sanders and Bryan examine the first four albums from Clan of Xymox. This band has a sound as unique as the fact that their name keeps changing, but the duo will see just how well their releases hold up today.
