Q & A

Hey, readers.  It's Q & A time.  Below I'll be answering the questions that one of my followers has posted.  *waves to Sylvie*

Q: Where are you from?
A: I am from and still reside in the mysterious land known as New Jersey.

Q: Do you have an embarrassing baby bat story?
A: That's kind of hard to answer.  I don't think I ever had a baby bat phase.  When I was in my teens, I considered myself to be an alternative kid.  Sometimes, I dressed in a way that could be considered goth.  Other times, I didn't.  

I experimented with and tried out different looks back then.  It wasn't til my early twenties that I started to fall more into goth.  The closest thing that I have to an embarrassing baby bat story was when I became a big fan of using black eyeliner to outline my lips before putting on lipstick.  This was back in my high school days.  Sometimes, I would put the liner on way too thick and my lips ended up looking weird.

Q: Who is your favorite Muppet?
A: Miss Piggy.

Q: What are your non-goth confessions?
A: - I don't watch a lot of horror movies.  I can handle watching certain ones.  Others I avoid because they're straight-up nightmare fuel.  

- I love Hello Kitty. 


- I enjoy watching MLP: Friendship is Magic.

Q: Bats or crows?
A: I'm not a pet person.  So, neither.  But aesthetic-wise, bats.

Q: Where is your favorite cemetery?
A: I don't have a favorite cemetery.

Q: What is your favorite band?
A: I don't have one favorite band.  So, I'm going to name my top 3 favorite bands.  The Killers, Dr. Death & Mr. Vile and Matchbox Twenty.

Q: Black cats or black hell hounds?
A: Again, as pets, neither.  Aesthetic-wise, black cats.

That's it for my first Q & A.  Depending on how many people are interested, I might do it again in the future.  Til next time.  *waves*

Poseurs Beware!

Image Source: Black Fairy Press

Hi-ho, readers.  Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite reads.  A webcomic called Poseur Patrol.  It's about the Gothic subculture in the 90s. This awesome webcomic was created by Merrily Duffy and Jaycee Baron.
They're the minds behind Black Fairy Press.  A publishing company that deals with comics for lovers of subculture, music, and fantasy.  I love reading Poseur Patrol.  I like how it pokes fun at poseurs, and promotes individuality within the goth scene.  Also, if you look hard enough, you'll find a few references to some popular films and songs.

I Live! *coughs*

Afternoon, readers.  A couple of weeks ago, my mother came down with a nasty bug and decided to share her germs with me.  So, I've spent the past week feeling like crap.  I'm starting to feel better.  However, I still have this lingering cough that I'm trying to get rid of.

What do you do when you're sick?  Have any home remedies that you'd like to share?  Would love to hear about some of them in the comments.
