Been Playing 'Gother Than Thou': I'm Too Elitist for the Elite!! [Oct. 18th, 2004|01:43 pm]

Net Fun For the Weekend
(otherwise entitled - Is it because I is a BRIT?)

VampGirl is clearly TOO SNOBBY ELITIST to join the_goth_elite...


No idea whatsoever what really possessed me to apply there apart from being severely, dangerously, mindlessly bored... but I've been in the mood for stirring up controversy since the 'cakeygirls' affair on Friday.

I don't know if it’s the weather, my hormones or I'm just feeling poke-till-its-sore-devil's-advocate-eevil at the moment but...


It's been neck and neck for ages - seems to be US vs UK lol!

Well, I should hope the UK goffs know what's goth and what isn't - since we OWN the origin of goth anyway lol!!

(I seem to be *winning* atm - much to the collective chagrin 'over the pond')

As for my 1337 US/CAN H8ters (is that how DA KIDZ spell it?) - I think it's time for you to stop calling yourselves 'elitist goth' and go back to your Faith and the Muse, RasputTWEEna and Tampon Head Tori Anus shit:P

(divide and conquer...)

^*^ Too Elitist for The Elite? ^*^

Read all the nested comments – click ‘thread’… You’ll see what I’m referring to below…

For the record, I'm a Gemini - so being a 'hypocrite' should be second nature, right?

See, one (non-uk) members definition of 'hypocrite' was nothing more than that I purport to be elitist but my curly makeup and boots make me a 'SpookyKid'(!!)...rather than taking my inspiration for my appearance from Neil Gaiman's 'Death', those dancers in the Doctor and the Medics 'Spirit in the Sky' video from waaay back when I was a kid...and, of course, Siouxsie Sioux herself!!


Oh how I larfed!! I larfed and I larfed!!

Don't go commenting about this on *that* actual comm post or my other posts btw (you know the drill) but by all means reply here instead - I'm still waiting for a satisfactory outcome;)

Judge ye not to be ye not judged - and all that...

Apologies to any lj friends and other genuinely nice people who are members and have voted me in thus far - so far it hasn't exactly turned out to be the comm I was hoping for on initial viewing - I simply wanted an old 80's/early 90's elite nostalgia trip where my snotty sarcasm would be taken as humourously as it's intended – like it used to be back in the day...and somewhere EXTRA to post music news, views and advertising – good bands and clubs and the like…

If I get in I *will* have to stick at it for now as there *are* some decent peeps in there who I've found I’d like to chat to *guilt-argh!* - and all gig/club/news promotion is good promotion… but, overall, I really don't know what you lot are doing in what is largely a haphazard nest of vipers - they don't deserve you:/

Btw, what was that thing that my handwriting analysis said on Saturday about me punishing myself with self-directed sarcasm??

Oops! I've done it again...


UPDATE: - kaylin has left (for shame!!)... and I'M *IN*!!! LOLOL!!!
Now it's time for some healthy music discussion and some gentle education...

Yes, I *know* I cannot resist wanting to OWN EVERYTHING - I'm a megalomaniac is all... *shrugs*

Nothing really - I'm just being picky;)

The whole thing was an exercise in boredom anyway!

You will not win against the super-elite, but I love the way you're along for the journey :-)

It's 6 x yes, 3 x no atm...

The Jury is still out though - but I'm winning on aggregate...

I was also looking at that community and wondering about playing devils advocate with them... (There is a certain character in their that I so know is not what she portrays)
So well done :)

Do what thou wilt...

Oh - did I just say that? No, Mr. Crowley (would you ride your white horse - it's symbolic - of course) did.

*covers mouth*

I'm still hoping to get in - if only to teach a few of those snotty SO-NOT-GOTH-BUT-THINK-THEY-ARE yanks a thing or two (or three) about our glorious musical past... And to promote some of the newer proper goth stuff that's going on:)

Oh what larks!

I have so much I want to/could say on the subject, but I just can't be bothered. I'm sure you know what I'm thinking though!

*grin* you do crack me up sometimes, you old elitist 'has-been' cahhhhh!! xxx

I know!!

For their information - PROPER GOTH as a scene and as an ERA has long since died - I'm just a little nostalgic is all.

Goth these days is what has EVOLVED from that - developed into many different aspects, and there can be NO SUCH THING as elitism within any of those fields lol!!

*grins evilly*

I live to make you laugh my dear - I do love my audience:))

I didn't think you were being particularly derogative of Hot Topic, you just mentioned that a lot of Spookies shop there, which seems like a fairly neutral statement of fact to me. Sure, it's boring when everyone gets their clothes the same place, but you weren't exactly saying "all those who use or endorse Hot Topic must hang their heads in shame" or whatever. I've followed links to that comm before and a lot of its members are unduly spiteful, so you're well out of it.

It was an entirely neutral statement - just takes one dumbfuck canadian to get a bee in her bonnet about it lol!!

Must have touched a nerve there, methinks?

UK goffs know the score. All the best goth bands hail from the UK, and in my experience UK goths are more relaxed about it all, they don't try so hard. Obviously there are exceptions to all this.

Me and the Goth Elite? Snowball's chance in hell? Blimey, Vampy, you're probably the goffest person I know!

Please. When the UK gets more than a handful of decent Goth bands, let me know, OK? Hehe.

Hey you - you *knew* I just couldn't resist a poke...


I'm categorically not counting you in this - honorary brit lol!!

(and there *are* some good goth bands in the US - I'm being a snotty cow for the purposes of fun as per usual... Having said that, there's a WHOLE lot better stuff coming out of Germany atm...)

Ok - how about Killing Miranda or Swarf or Corrosion then? To name but three... You really need to read Mick Mercer more...

*ok, so thump me now*

They are indeed, very silly people.
Probably a large proportion of them think that James Ray Gangwar was an eighties rap band that once collaborated with The Beastie Boys.
Or that Red Lorry Yellow Lorry was something you were asked to say by a speech therapist at school when you had a peach inspediment....

Well, I notice you're older than kaylin (assuming that's her real age) - I find a flippant "I'm older than you and therefore know better" is very enjoyable to say, if not actually strictly accurate. I think she's threatened because you're just so GAWTH! Anyway, she spells 'theatre' wrong on her interests list. Or something.

Oh my dear, those abhorrent "ratings" communities remind me of the Corny Collins Show in John Waters Hairspray...basically a sorority / frat house mentality of elitist (not justifiably so) "desperately popular" kids. Sad really, you run pretty purple swirly Gothic circles around them in my book darlin!
