Good morning. I've gotten pretty interested into the Gothic culture recently, finding it fascinating and intriguing at the same time, with its many branches and diverse subcultures, and it's singular atmosphere. I sometimes consider becoming a part of a goth community. But I still ask myself this question: how can I know if "goth is made for me", if I may say so? With the hope that you can help me with this (I admit, complicated) question, thank you very much. Regards!

I guess the question you have to ask yourself is – do I find beauty in things others consider dark? Do you like dark sounding music for example? Have you always liked these things and will you always like them? What is it that interests you about the Goth culture? Goth wasn’t something I questioned whether or not I was a part of when I first discovered it. It was more like – I had finally found what I already was – I just didn’t know that there was a whole culture of other people that liked similar things. Check out my website whatisgoth.com if you haven’t already.

Happy 40th anniversary Paper Moon. The film was released May 9, 1973.

Saw this movie for the first time the other day. It was pretty good.

Auguste Raynaud  (1854 - 1937) Night
In Greek mythology, Nyx (“night”, Nox in Roman translation) was the primordial goddess of the night.  A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of personified gods such as Hypnos (sleep) and Thánatos (death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty.
