I’m in the Goths For Sophie Calendar 2021

0

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.

GothCast Episode 13: The Cure Part 3 – 90’s and Early 2000’s

0

This week’s podcast is our third part in our ongoing discussion about The Cure’s expansive career. This time we take a look at the albums Wish, Wild Mood Swings, Bloodflowers, and The Cure (2004). This was the most difficult episode so far because of the nature of these albums. There is experimentation, critical success and a dramatic changes in the band during this time and it really helped shaped their sound for this era.

I also want to mention that this episode does have a slightly heavier subject for our news segment where we give our thoughts about the Sophie Lancaster murder and its effect on the subculture.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback and opinions on any of the albums we discuss on this episode and of course, stay spooky.
