May 22, 2012 Full story: The Guardian

I too was once drawn the shadows of a gothic aesthetic. Let's celebrate a movement that's largely evaded cultural takeover The first gig I went to was Shakin' Stevens .

I never had that goth experience, of course at that time I was really too old than to be a goth unlike the teenger's hanging out in the goth clubs in the 80's, which are most of your parents I'm assuming, but the chicks were hot. At least I think so behind all the makeup.

Today with the internet kids who are not up to drinking age which is far too high being I always got drunk and partied on the weekend around 12, are like giving us internet news, and acting like adults, but can't even drink yet for a few years.
But the parents today are like...'get my kid on top'

The politics are far more dirty than ever. More lies coming from the right and left.

People like Alex Jones have teenagers do his political peddling, because I know Ron Paul was never intented on legalizing marijuna. Which should have never been illegal.

Amazing. The internet is making us go down hill.

Not all of us are teen angst goths. I am 64 and have been a goth almost all of my life. I don't do the clubs as much but now attend events geared towards the older goths like the Goth Cruise or the Endless Night Balls. There is an older goth culture out there. We don't die, we exist forever.

“Woohoo!!!!!”

I'm not sure where I can start, but I'm only a few years away from the big 30 myself. Not everyone here is a kid. I've met quite a few people under the age of 21 who appear to know a good deal about the subculture. I wish there were more goth nights or even just goth friendly near me. The goth scene here is dying a quick death, if not already dead. NY here I come!
