Today's weirdness: google your birthdate like "died may 22 1980" and see who you reincarnated.

This band is making me very happy, really tickling my goth side
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:12am Julie:

Well, I guess I shouldn't say "happy"

Hi Julie and everyone! Nice early start to WGD!

Meghan you missed the music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Matt from Springfield:

Broody, moody Goth Day to you, Meghan!
  4:40am Meghan:

I noticed!
  4:40am doca:

I've seen Tony Curtis' The Hunger recently, it boostered my fond memories of my almost gothic days.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:43am Julie:

yes and if you look for them on facebook it's the one that says church/religious organization, not the one that says band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am Matt from Springfield:

I darkly vow to visit the darker Vows.
Avatar 4:55am Sem Chumbo:

Julie, would never have heard Vows but for you and 'FMU. A musical education continues. Here, have this highly-polished apple:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Matt from Springfield:

@Sem: How many apples I would owe WFMU... :)
Avatar 4:56am fred von helsing:

Serge: Protector.

I always play this one on the jukebox at my pub
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:14am Julie:

it's a goodie
Avatar 5:16am fred von helsing:

Oh heck you played Strange Boutique. I have an LP from them. I don't remember much from the gig except that I was in a certain form of ecstacy. Hard-driving.
Avatar 5:16am Sem Chumbo:

Oh, yes.
Avatar 5:18am fred von helsing:

gotta say, julie, you've been posting some great stuff on faceborg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am Matt from Springfield:

"Pandaimonium" -- looks like the original spelling, the capital of Hell in Paradise Lost, pan daimonium (all the demons).
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:21am Julie:

this band was supposed to be on the show tonight too but it didn't work out. They should be coming in late June.

been checking this summer's festival listings here but not seeing anything DNotS-compatible :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29am Matt from Springfield:

Dark Soul Fest--we need to organize our own outdoor concert with past guests of this show then!
Avatar 5:29am fred von helsing:

BTW I hope everyone knows that Tallinn Estonia has a Depeche Mode bar www.depechemode.ee
Avatar 5:30am fred von helsing:

Avatar 5:32am Sem Chumbo:

@FVH: "Bar devoted for the band they chosed to honour"
Google Translate strikes again. But then, Estonian (& Finnish?) tough to get into English, I guess.
Avatar 5:34am fred von helsing:

Yeah google mangles both of them pretty badly. They are effectively code talking for the 21st century.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am Matt from Springfield:

"Every drink is a Black Celebration!"
Avatar 5:44am fred von helsing:

spent yesterday afternoon exploring a "genre" called "seapunk". The "design" trend has already peaked and the music is hit-or-miss but the basic aesthetic is silly and tiki-compatible and does appeal. Not sure I could get away with turquoise hair tho.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:46am Meghan:

This seems more techno than goth.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am Matt from Springfield:

"seagreen punk", "seapunk green"...
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:46am Julie:

I would say industrial, but they are on the goth comp, and heck it's athan maroulis
Avatar 5:47am fred von helsing:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am Matt from Springfield:

@Meghan: But, it is Athan Maroulis--legend behind Black Tape for a Blue Girl and many other gothy/industrial projects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, what Julie said. And "they are on the comp"--the faceless creators behind the infinite numbers of goth comps don't lie!..

@FVH: Well lookie there! :)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:49am Julie:

I knew Meghan would nitpick somewhere!
Avatar 5:49am fred von helsing:

Speaking of seapunk... Mermaid Parade ? I wonder if it's worth a trip. Being a wee bit obsessed with mermaids and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49am Matt from Springfield:

"You are in Theme-Violation Court, Julie: DEFEND!" ;)
Avatar 5:50am fred von helsing:

maybe it was ingothstrial
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, band with question mark in their name!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:51am Julie:

There's a lot of industrial/goth overlap.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:51am Julie:

I had Noir ready to go but I went with Spahn ranch instead
Avatar 5:51am fred von helsing:

Time is running out! Take us out with an Über Göthic BÄNG!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:52am Meghan:

goth comp.... pfft.....

YES! Mermaid parade is always worth it!!!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:52am Julie:

this is the bang, the sisters of mercy cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Matt from Springfield:

With a Master of Science in Ingothstrial Engineering, you can increase the efficiency and quality of musical output, as well as trance out dancing for hours at night..
Avatar 5:52am Sem Chumbo:

@MFS: guess they couldn't figure a way to work in an umlaut.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:54am Meghan:

I used to go to a club that in the back was the the goth/industrial room and the other room was techno/rave..... I would giggle at the goth/industrial kids... stomping around. the techno room was more fun.... but maybe if it was 3 years earlier I would have love it. I was dreaming of the Hacienda at that point....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am Matt from Springfield:

"How Soon Is Now?" is a great *depressing* song though, that's what's important :)
Avatar 5:56am fred von helsing:

I'd love to hear some Mermaid Parade stories... it does look like quite the saline festival
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Matt from Springfield:

@Sem: Well like any process, you can throw an umlaut on anything easily, but will it improve the product or just throw it off balance? A fine placement Amon Düül, or a thoughtlessly tossed together "Mueertly Crueee"...
Avatar 5:58am fred von helsing:

"There's an um-laut on your vow-el, whack it off !"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Julie! You (along w/ Cruel Britannia) have made World Goth Day an annual event for me!

Have a great Thursday (and Friday! and weekend!), everyone!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:58am Julie:
