Good morning Julie

Due to Android lag, I am still listening to Mary, while commenting on DNotS. Freaky!

One minute before the last board closed, it was inquired what is a Goth Day:

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:04am Julie:

Good morning, creatures of the night!
  3:05am Holly in NC:

Morning, Julie!
Avatar 3:06am Droll:

So there's no special event on May 22nd it commemorates?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:08am G:

@Droll: The event site says in its FAQ:


Frankly, if there wasn't an occasion on the 22nd of May, that day would just sit around on your calendar not earning its keep & generally freeloading off the other dates...

Seriously though...May 22nd was the date of Goth Day, the smaller scale UK incarnation of World Goth Day in 2009, originating from a desire to turn what started as a musical subculture weekend on the BBC 6Music station which focused on punk, Brit-pop and Goth (the Goth feature was on May 22nd) into something far bigger.

NOTE: It's understood that May 22nd might not be a convenient date for everyone to celebrate Goth Day (let's face it; Wednesdays are a ghost-ship for any event at the best of times), so it's more of a guideline than a hard & fast rule. Most good events happen on a weekend, but we'll cross that bridge as the years go by.
Avatar 3:10am Droll:

I like it. Very pragmatic.

Avatar 3:12am Droll:

So there must be a series of Hallmark cards for the occasion, right?
Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Goth day is on or about May 22nd.

With admirable Goth alienation, Droll is crapping in the punchbowl :p
Avatar 3:17am Droll:

I more closely identify with emo than goth. The feud is bitter indeed.
Avatar 3:18am BadGuyZero:

BLERG...I ate meat yesterday.

  3:20am doktor lorenz:

there is no comparison whatsoever between emo and goth. emo was going to a fugazi concert in 1991. goth fashion became part of emo culture in the early-mid 2000's because of hot topic and bands like my chemical romance which are not even emo or goth.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:20am G:

I thought ruins were a Goth preference?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:22am G:

Hot Topic ruined everything goddamit! I say that every time I am dragged to a suburban mall.
Avatar 3:24am Droll:

See what I mean? Still, even at it's worst, emo v. goth is a tiny fraction of prog v. anything.
Avatar 3:26am fred von helsing:

fashionably late !
  3:26am W. Gravy:

Fugazi is NOT Emo.

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:44am groucho:

Ironic to come in here and read that the subculture event that is Goth Day was started by BBC 6 Music, when I've just flicked over from there because they were playing god awful Daft Punk, Kelis, and that hipster tune that goes 'one day...we're gonna live...in paris..." God bless you WFMU. I love 6music, used to work there, but their daytime playlist is dire.
