Upwardly Gothic

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Now after that last post, I came across this article regarding the gothic community. It is very interesting! It gives a little insite and perspective! Still very different but it takes all kinds to make up this big wide world of ours! The one person I know is a co-worker who is very thin, so thin it hurts to look at her and she changes her hair color each week. It might be black or electric blue or a rainbow. You just never know with her. And let's not talk about the socks. Most odd socks that are long, go to the knee and have all sorts of animal heads. Crazy! Those socks are crazy. She has fake piercings. Some are realy but the nose right that is like the ring a bull would wear is scary.

Behind the black hair dye and white make-up goths are simply art lovers, who aspire to middle-class values, says a new study. Is that right?

The moment their teenage son or daughter dyes their hair black and starts getting creative with eyeliner can be a nightmare for parents. But a report suggests it should be a time for celebration.

Goths are likely to grow up to be doctors, lawyers or architects, the study by Sussex University says.

They are refined and sensitive, keen on poetry and books, not big on drugs or anti-social behaviour. They are also likely to carry on being goths into their adult life.

They have an ability to express their feelings and are believers in romance rather than one-night stands, it says. In fact, the only things dark about them are their clothing and their sarcastic sense of humour.
