What's on the Tube?


Hey, readers.  Welcome to What's on the Tube?  In this new blog segment, I'll be talking about and sharing the channels of lesser known goth youtubers.  Gonna kick off this segment by listing the channels of fellow black goths that I like to follow.
  • Angel Nightmare: On his channel, Angel does make-up tutorials in a satiric/comedic manner, composes/performs original music and more.
  • Jess in King: Their channel focuses on the goth subculture from the black, disabled, geek, femme and queer perspective.
  • Divine Studio: This channel is run by Anubis Bey (A.K.A The Gothic Tech Guy).  What drew me to his channel was his videos on black goths in NYC.  Another highlight of his channel is his Thor of Midgard web series. Quite entertaining.
  • Gothic SoulFlower: Describing herself as a gothic bohemian, Gothic SoulFlower shares videos about fashion, make-up, tribal belly dancing and other things.
That concludes this episode 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.

On the Rox

Hey, readers.  I know it's been a while since I last shared anything about webcomics on here.  But fear not.  I'm here with my latest webcomic discovery.  Came across it the other day on The Blogging Goth's facebook page.  

The webcomic is called Roxy.  It's about a woman who struggles to be an adult in the face of extreme social awkwardness.  I've read through the first 10 pages and so far, I'm digging it.  Definitely worth checking out.

New FB Page

Hey, readers.  I decided that I want to try my hand at creating jewelry for films and other types of productions.  So, I created a new facebook page called LaStrange Creations.  The page serves as an online portfolio for my handmade jewelry designs.  Hoping this attracts other creators that will want to collaborate with me on their projects.

If you're interested in working with me or just like seeing my designs, head on over to the page and give it a like and a follow.  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.

2019: The Year of ???

Hey, readers.  Happy 2019.  As you can tell by the title, I have no idea what the year is going to hold for me.  So for now, I'm just going to continue to focus on my blog and work on my podcast.  To tide you over til my next post, have a meme.


If you have not watched Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix yet, you're missing out.  Go watch it.  Like right now.  Seriously, watch it.  I command you.

The Nightmare After Christmas



Hey, readers.  Hope you're all doing well this holiday season.  I'm doing pretty good.  Got spoiled with a lot of The Nightmare Before Christmas stuff this year.  Can't complain about that. XD

Time to take a close-up look at these goodies.  Starting with the Sally doll.


Wasn't able to get Jack.  So, until he can be obtained, Lord Vader will be keeping Sally company.


Next, are these earring sets, a bottle of black nail polish and a pack of glue-on nails.  I'm not really into glue-on nails.  So, I'll have to find a different use for them.


My favorite out of the bunch was this Zero sweater.


In non-The Nightmare Before Christmas gift news, I got a pair of dress boots.  Now, I can stop relying on my winter boots for those occasions when I decide to dress-up.


Lastly, is this Pan's Labyrinth DVD.

Sarcasm and Jewelry

Hey, readers.  It's been a bit busy over here.  Did some Christmas shopping, wrapped some gifts and worked on my podcast with a couple of friends.  During my shopping excursion, I swung by the craft store and got this pack of assorted chains.


Since my cousin is into owl jewelry, I decided to make her an owl charm bracelet.



While I was still in a jewelry making mood, I went ahead and made myself a necklace with the other silver chain and the last of my key charms.


On the podcast front, it's slowly coming along.  Did a recording last night.  For some reason, the the program that I use to record the podcast keeps cutting itself off while my friends and I are talking.  Luckily, it decided to cut off closer to the end of the podcast instead of right in the middle of it like last time.  Need to figure out why it keeps doing that before the next recording session.

If you're interested in checking out my podcast, you can listen to it on soundcloud.  Once I work out all the kinks, I'll start uploading episodes to youtube.  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.
