Over on FB today, after a few posts trying to identify a Seattle band from Back In The Day (it was Sky Cries Mary), I made the following post:

ALSO (since apparently I'm serial-posting while finishing my first pot of tea), what is it about the start of summer that makes me nostalgic for the Seattle Goth Experience of the 90s?

This is the time of year I get all wistful about shops gone by from the Ave (Junkman's Daughter, Body Scent, Twice Sold Tales, weird dark small coffee shops, and all the tiny import shops full of cheap silver jewelry and floaty skirts), and I want to burn a lot of incense (which I don't do because it doesn't agree with Pete's breathing.)

Anyway, my brain is an odd, odd place.

When my memory went WAITAMINUTE, I searched through my tags here.

I wrote a version of that post on July 22, 2015.

I guess what this actually means is that if someone were to start selling vintage goth magazines (mostly Ghastly and Bats and Red Velvet) and those black gauzy skirts with sequins and sparkly embroidery, they'd probably make a killing off of me.

Eeeugh. Today is one of those days where my brain apparently never released the magical feel-awake-and-alert hormones. Got up for an 8am meeting, went back to bed after, and also just got up from a nap. I'm drinking coffee as tho' my life depends on it. Which it doesn't, because today is actually blessedly low-key for work. There are no immediate documentation fires to put out, just the usual, gently-smoldering ones.


Vampire Ball is next weekend! Wheee! Hopefully it will soothe the raging tide of I need more gothy-goth in my life right NOW that's been going on. Interacting with my subculture online is great and all, but there are times when I want to be surrounded by decorative creatures in elaborate clothing. With dramatic lighting.

I would love there to be some sort of monthly get-together for spooky types that DIDN'T involve a night club, but let's face it, I'm not up to organizing such a thing. And even if I was, where on earth where would we hold it? All the goths I know locally are scattered all over the map, so there's not any stand-out ideal location of a coffee shop or whatnot.


I need to get back to culling ... everything, really, but especially my wardrobe. Yes, there is going to be a yard sale this summer, at Thea's. I will remind all of you about this off and on.


There is potential good news on the horizon for me, but it will be a month or so before I know anything. OH MY G-D I AM BAD AT BEING PATIENT. ::twitches::
