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..

Link Exchange with Kate's Gothic Clothing

My side-bar has a new addition - a link to ::Kate's Gothic Clothing::. I was approached to take part in a link exchange, and decided to take part. I actually shop online at Kate's, and I have had a pretty positive  experience with them. They are an online Gothic supermarket stocking the main brands of clothes, accessories and hair-products. Their prices are on the whole pretty competitive, they often run good offers and they have a very wide variety of stock. I can genuinely recommend them. I've had no problems with orders, no mix-ups and pretty prompt delivery. I'm not the sort to recommend or link to anyone I haven't tried and tested myself. As this is a link exchange I do benefit in terms of traffic, but as this site is totally non-commercial in that I don't make any money from advertisements, nor do I get affiliate money from Kate's Gothic Clothing or any other site, I am not in anyway benefiting in terms of money from this exchange, and I'm not getting any vouchers, free items, or discount either. I'm recommending them because I've shopped there and found them to be reliable and trust-worthy and a good place to order a variety of things at once without having to pay for shipping from a variety of suppliers. They're based in the UK, but they ship internationally.
