Hello [May. 11th, 2005|02:53 pm]
Drink up, it's good for you!

Hi, I'm Zee, and I'm new here. I hope it's okay that I've joined. I promise not to be morbidly apologetic in the future, unless it happens to be funny. Tell me, what are the rules for this community?

An Ode [Mar. 22nd, 2005|06:23 pm]
Drink up, it's good for you!

It is Autumn in the land of the pink tree
Spring went by so quicky
The opening
The excitement
Carefully I assembled you
Slot A into Slot B
The strong brown cardboard trunk standing tall and proud

You were young then.

Like a nurturing goddess I
Cut open the pouch of liquid and watered you
And waited.

How you tried my patience in your spring!
Watching eagerly for signs of blossoming
Of the pink foliage I was promised.

Then, in the secret depths of night
You blossomed
Reaching out into darkness with pink crystalline structures
Fulfilling the promise of your $2.95.

Your summer was pink
Very pink
Small and pink and kind of round
How pretty you looked sitting on the bench!
Your utter pinkness stood defiant to
The plain cardboard and darkness of your birth.

Now, it is Autumn.
The pink falls
Collecting in the cheap white plastic that is your soil.
You look so bare
And cheap
And scrawny.
Not very pretty at all.

Soon, it will be Winter
Tenderly I shall take you
Tap the pink crystals into the sink
Because I want to see what will happen.
Then, the circle shall be fulfilled:
Once again as a mother goddess I
Will throw you in the bin.

Don't click this! -ha ha, I nearly had you, didn't I? No, it's not obscene...Collapse )

"By sending data over the surface of the skin, it may soon be possible to trade music files by dancing cheek to cheek, or to swap phone numbers by kissing" ..and what'd be the point of that?

A kiss=I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE? that's a bit disquieting. I think it'd put people off physical contact big-time. Imagine also doing the continental cheek-kiss and hearing snatches of music in your head...

here's to cyborgs!

Odd how google searches for the words "money troubles" and "humour" come up almost exclusively with references to Michael Jackson's trial... which is true enough I suppose....

Wow, blairette, you have restored me to community-posting after a chasmic lapse.

I have been glooming about being so useless to friends who are depressed or distraught (not at all looking at anyone in particular), because, you know, I've been there, I should know what to say. But I don't. Sometimes I don't even know what *not* to say.

So, do you guys think seeing/hearing "tragedy" in the semi-traditional sense provisions any kind of a "catharsis" (whatever your personal reading of that is) of emotions of pity and fear?

I'm not a goth, so this isn't a goth rant, right??

Incidentally, listening to Marlene Dietrich singing about how sie kann lieben nur, und sonst gar nichts hasn't exactly been uplifting....I wonder if there's a community at liebeskummer already
*goes to look*

Question: [Mar. 20th, 2005|09:30 pm]
Drink up, it's good for you!

[relative depth of despair |crankycranky]
[ambient noise |bah. humbug.]

Can I post bad goth poetry (not that I've written any lately) here, so long as it's clearly not to be taken seriously? Because sometimes writing melodramatic things makes me feel better.

Because how I'm interpreting this community is that it's a place where people post gloomy things about themselves or other people in order to feel better about things.

General hello and welcome to the community...

I've been trawling various LJ forums, and eek, we are a depressive lot! Not to mention inclined to take ourselves seriously... it probably wouldn't be advisable to quote selections from all the wonderful Goth prose out there - we've all seen it, and we've probably all given in to it once or twice, and I'd hate anyone to recognise themselves on these pages. (omg, teh angst! teh helplessness! teh fashionable absinthe addiction!)

This is not what we are about. While I am happy to deal with the genuinely depressed and disenchanted in my own incompetent way, all Goth rants on this community are to be strictly for humorous purposes. Anyone performing a rant is advised to go to the communities fightdepression , or suicide_friends , or shatteredminds , or totallyfucked . or or... you see, there ARE people who care about you, folks. They will put up with your Goth rants, and simultaneously supply you with the most pretentious and melodramatic material one could ever wish for.

Not that I'm suggesting you mock them or anything.

Because things could always have turned out differently.
