Just a quick note to say that I have just spotted a spambot post to this community, and have already deleted it, banned the user from posting anywhere that I have control over, and reported them as a bot to LJ. There seem to be a lot of such bots around on LJ at the moment, so I am putting this community on moderated membership for the time being, and will add a note to that effect to the userinfo page. Hopefully that will stop the problem.
As you were!

PhD research on goth- looking for participants!
My name is Zoe Enstone and I’m lucky enough to be doing my PhD research on goth! The study is specifically focussed on the everyday practices of subculturalists, the sensory experience of events, and anxiety towards the group within mainstream populations.
I’m currently looking for two groups of participants:
1) Anybody over age 18 who identify with and/or participate in the UK goth scene and would like to take part in interviewing and creating multimedia diaries;
2) and those attending ‘Whitby Goth Weekend’ in a couple of weeks.
More details about my research can be found here
and on my Facebook group
Please email (email@example.com) if you are interested in finding out more and being involved in the study. Your information will be kept confidential and strict ethical guidelines followed.

The Last Dance, Intrusion, OCtober 14th
On OCtober 14th, you'll have the chance to see the great LA goth band The Last Dance(Who have headlined the Whitby Goth festival, and played with most of the top names in goth today), and their support band Screaming Banshee Aircrew. they'll be at Intrusion in the Cellar, on-stage from 9.15(doors open at 8.30pm).
Advance tickets can ONLY be purchased at :
We know this will be a very busy night, so to guarantee seeing the bands, buy your ticket now! (PLEASE NOTE, there will be no discounted entry at this Intrusion, so that means there will be no flyer discount or Rock Soc discount, as we are faced with a lot of expenses involving band payments and equipment hire...The concessions will be back on in November)
The bands will finish at about 11ish, and will be followed by several hours of 'regular' Intrusion, with Dok, and guests Loki and Martin Oldgoth.
We hope to see you all there!

I Think I'm Going To Die Of Boredom...
Being in Banbury now for just over a year, and have had no luck in finding anything remotely interesting to do with the spare time that I manage to scrape together. I know a few of you are also resident in Banbury; so what do you get up to in town for 'fun'? Will hopefully be making it down to Intrusion once again in Oct', but what can I do to stave off my tedium until then? Anyone fancy meeting up for a drink? Current Mood: bored

Intrusion.....June 10th, a time to come back home
June 10th sees Intrusions 7th birthday...and yes, there will sweets, a raffle, and probably various silly things as usual.
but as this is the oxgoths forum, I'm sending a message to all of those who went to Intrusion way back when, and perhaps haven't been in a while due to work/distance etc etc, I want people from all 7 years of Intrusion to attend, and since I've only missed 3 Intrusions (thus making me No 1 attendee *cough* ;) ) I'll remember you and would really love to see you there again. So if you're one of those people, or you know one of them, please come down, we really want to make it a very special night.
P.S... as well as our guest DJ Angelus, myself and Dok will be trying our hardest to play what you want (BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dance to a song if you request it and it gets played), so come down with a ready made request list, or maybe leave us a note on this forum
see you there

I have a feeling this will cause Goths either extreme joy, or extreme pain. Thought I'd share, either way.

no, really, what?
i enjoy goth clubbing because i can dress how i like to and dance happily in my corner without:
i. being judged
ii. having the heteronomative paradigm foisted on me
iii. feeling the influence of body fascism, "male gaze", etc.
so, no, i don't appreciate being given a "tart number" and being considered for the "shortest skirt" competition and being told that i'm either "single" or "taken" and there's no other option and having my dancing to a song i like marred by knowing that people are fucking marking
me on my "cuteness" or "dirtiness".pridehouse
spent £50 there tonight, trying to enjoy ourselves and failing.
well, that's £50 they won't be seeing any other month, i guess... Current Mood: fucked off

Like to shop?
My name is Alexandra Olteanu, the PR intern at the Canadian fashion label. Since we are conducting extensive in-house research on the best places to shop for edgy clothes, I thought our community is one of the best places to ask about this. Thought you guys would enjoy participating in our project. All you have to do is tell us what are your favorite places to shop in your city and/or around the world!
Looking forward to hear about your likes.

The BBC's version of goth
Anyone come across THIS
Here's a sampler:
"Another common Goth thing is the use of make-up for both genders. Unsurprisingly, the preferred colour is black and is applied to lips, eyes and eyebrows. The effect is sometimes highlighted by giving the rest of the face a coating of white. Males, in the main, have black-coloured hair with the sides of the head shaven. Females either go for black or blonde for colour (a nice contrast to all the black gear) and whatever they fancy in styling."
"The peculiar style of dancing - two and a half steps to the front (or sideways) and back again."
"People don't dance into one another and should they do so by accident they ask for forgiveness."
"Closely related to the way that Goths dress up, is the myth that all Goths sleep in coffins. Some do and some consider a child's casket a perfectly acceptable couch table."
