Podcast Episode 62 – Christian Death – Valor Kand Part 2

MP3 DOWNLOAD [Right-Click and Save As]

This reunion episode brings back Robbie Gore as the original GothCast duo break down some lesser talked about albums from the Valor Kand era of Christian Death. It’s one of the more interesting eras of the group as two competing versions of the band were releasing material sometimes within the same year. They cover the albums Insanus, Ultio, Proditio, Misericordiaque (1990), Sexy Death God (1994), Prophecies (1996), and well…one more from 1998. This one gets a little strange, but that’s nothing new to this podcast.

I’m in the Goths For Sophie Calendar 2021

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.

American McGee’s Alice Review [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.

Halloween with the New Addams Family [1977] Review [Video]

The 70’s were a good time for wood paneling and shag carpeting, but not for The Addams Family. The original cast of the 60’s show reuniting, what could possibly go wrong?

This special is honestly very frustrating, there’s actually a documentary about Carolyn Jones that briefly mentions the production of this special and apparently the cast had a great time catching up.

Goth Thrifting in California (Plus Vinyl Restoration) [Video]

I took a trip to California and did some thrifting. There were plenty of thrift stores to choose from and the temperature was way too hot for me. I definitely prefer an overcast rainy day. This video was more of an experiment to see if people wanted to see similar episodes. It seems to have gone over well so I guess I’ll make more.

On a technical note, editing this video was a nightmare. It took way longer than expected, but that’s probably because I’m such a perfectionist.

Type O Negative – Bloody Kisses Review [Video]

What a great album! I have wanted to cover a Type O Negative album for a looonnngg time, but it is very difficult to objectively review albums from your favorite band. I actually learned a few new things while doing research. One thing I din’t mention in this video is the Bloody Kisses demos. The demo for We Hate Everyone is AMAZING! I actually like it more than the album version.
