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..

I Am Bad At Computers

Ok, I am not universally awful at everything computer related, but I did fail to synchronise my Google Mail account for this website/blog with my mail package, so for over a year, I have thought nobody has   tried sending me any e-mails. I do actually get a very small trickle of e-mails to it, and on checking found I had accumulated about 20 e-mails over the course of the year, some of which were interesting (and have been replied to), some were spam, and others were e-mails from Google Mail telling me about updates... So not very many actual e-mails! My e-mail address is on the contacts page in the side-bar, if you want to contact me :)  As of last night, I have begun sorting out my mail, so that I receive e-mails from ALL of my addresses to my mail package. I apologise for any inconvenience, and I apologise for anyone thinking I have been deliberately ignoring them.
