To the Guillotine!

Hey, readers.  Popping in with another bandcamp review/recommendation.  This time for Guillotine Dream's latest album Damaged and Damned.  The whole album screams old school gothic rock and gave off Sisters of Mercy vibes.  Highly recommend.

In other news, I finally figured out the problem I was having with streaming on twitch.  Now I can start doing listening parties on the platform.  Did one over the weekend for The Long Losts'  latest album At This Late Hour.  Might be doing some watch parties there as well.  The link to my twitch channel can be found in the header and in my profile.

Time for Work

Hey, Readers.  Back with another band review.  This time, I was contacted by an industrial metal band from Germany called MIY.  Their sound blends industrial metal with darkwave, synth pop and future pop.  They messaged me about promoting and reviewing their newest album, Work.

I listened to it and, again, I was not disappointed.  This album fucking slaps.  In a pandemic-free world, there are definitely some tracks on here that I would request at a goth club.  Work releases on February 21.  Until then, you can hop on over to their bandcamp and listen to their previous album, The Seeking.

7

Hey, readers.  Today marks the 7th anniversary of my blog.  Haven't been in much of a celebratory mood though.  My creative output hasn't been looking that great either.  2020 was a total shit show and 2021 is proving to be an even bigger one.

Might talk about the craziness that happened earlier this month in another post.  Anyway, just wanted to take this time to let y'all know that I'm still around.  Til next time.

A New Nightmare

Hey, readers.  A few weeks ago, I was contacted by The Nightmares.  A noir pop band located in Newport, Wales.  Back in September, they released a double A side single featuring the songs "The Falling Dream and Give Up The Hoax" and wanted me to give it a listen.  Disappointed I was not.

The songs have a late 80s/early90s feel to them.  Like something you'd hear in an independent film about a group of misfits going on a long road trip, where bonds are tested and love happens.  They are for sure worth checking out.

Skelly Haul


Hey, readers.  It's the mist of Halloween season.  Haven't made it to any of the big stores to check out what they have.  But I did manage to snag some spooky things from other places.  Let's start off with the dollar store finds.

Here's a cute little sugar skull that I got from Dollar General.  There's a switch at the bottom that you can flip to make it light up.  The color of the light varies.



From the Family Dollar store down the street, I picked up this large sugar skull that you can either hang on the wall or from the ceiling.


For drug store finds, I got this pack of Jack Skellington garland from the Rite Aid.  Also located down the street.  I didn't have to go far for most of these. XD Will probably use the garland to decorate one of my shelves.


Now for the biggie.  Besides outdoor decorations, you don't normally think of Home Depot when it comes to Halloween stuff.  But behold!  The Jack Skellington Waddler.  Push his hand and he waddles.


Adorable!  I'll probably post a short video on instagram that shows how he moves.  That concludes my skelly haul.

What's on the Tube? 6


Hey, readers.  Time for another installment of What's on the Tube?  The blog segment where I talk about and share the channels of lesser known goth youtubers.  This time though, out of the 3 channels that I'll be talking about, 2 of them aren't goth.  I'll start off with the goth channel first.

  • DryIsShy: On her channel, she talks about goth music and other goth-related topics.  She's just starting out with posting videos on youtube.  So, show her some love.

Now onto the 2 non-goth channels.  Normally, I don't do this.  But these channels put out some great content.  So, I wanted to give them a shout out.

  • Double Toasted: On DT, Korey and the gang discuss movies, pop culture, video games and news stories with a comedic spin.  If you want to see the unedited versions of their videos, check out their twitch channel.
  • Wine & Weed Podcast: Join Steelo, Chris and Jon as they discuss the news of the week while drinking wine and smoking weed.  New episodes come out every Wednesday.

And that concludes this installment of What's on the Tube?  If you enjoy reading my blog and want to show some love, consider donating to my Ko-fi page.  The link can be found in the header under "SUPPORT".  Til next time.
