My personal blog as a 'grown-up' Goth and Romantic living in the Highlands of Scotland. I write about the places I go, the things I see and my thoughts on life as a Goth and the subculture, and things in the broader realm of the Gothic and darkly Romantic. Sometimes I write about music I like and sometimes I review things. This blog often includes architectural photography, graveyards and other images from the darker side of life.

Goth is not just about imitating each other, it is a creative movement and subculture that grew out of post-punk and is based on seeing beauty in the dark places of the world, the expression of that in Goth rock. It looks back to the various ways throughout history in which people have confronted and explored the macabre, the dark and the taboo, and as such I'm going to post about more than the just the standards of the subculture (Siouxsie, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, et al) and look at things by people who might not consider themselves anything to do with the subculture, but have eyes for the dark places. The Gothic should not be limited by what is already within it; inspiration comes from all places, the key is to look with open eyes, listen carefully and think with an open mind..

Domesticated: Now On FaceBook!

Domesticated Goth now has its own FaceBook page!

I figured there needed to be a place where readers can discuss the blog in a wider context than comments on specific blogs, and where I can update people with information. Like the blog's page ::here:: to be kept updated and to make suggestions, discuss the blog, and view the photograph's I've posted (and a couple extra) in an album format. 


  1. Loving the facebook page, but can those of us not as talented as you please have a button to translate the french or lessons plse

    1. I was actually going to do it on my blog in pairs of paragraphs; the English first, and then my French translations in italics underneath.
