Vamp – some thoughts

By johnboy - 16 August 2008 83

Bonejack’s friends think he needs a lifestyle.

He thinks he might like being a goth.

So as a good friend I went with him to the Vamp night at the Holy Grail.

With the lights down the garish paint scheme didn’t overly offend.

In large part older goth men stood on the edges and young goth women in extravagant corsetry bopped away on the dance floor. Periodically large groups would disappear outside to shiver and smoke.

The guys running it went around every now and then asking what people wanted to hear. It seemed mostly people wanted to hear old NIN and Rammstein.

We played a lot of pool badly.

Bonejack thinks he might like to be a goth and plans to go back.

Wow…I know Riot-Act sinks to some lows, and I know I’m often party to that..but WOW. There are some real lame-arses on this site.

If you don’t like rounder chicks, make friends with them, because they always have hot friends.

The main reason why I was going to comment on this thread was to do with the attitudes of the older goths in regards to the newer breeds (not emos). Grow up. You’re 35. In high school, we worry about image (or alcohol). In adulthood, we worry about good music (or alcohol – or both). Good music has nothing to do with how the musicians or the fans dress, act, talk or anything else but the sound. There’s some great industrial out there, I might even dare to say some tidbits of black/death/doom/celtic/whatever metal I’ve heard are brilliant as well. Listen to the damn music, don’t worry about how other people listen to it or how they’re dressed. Get drunk and have a good time.

Also…don’t worry about that bunch of drunken bogans who were intentionally (?) dancing like idiots in the middle of the dance-floor at the last vamp or whatever it was with goths at the grail before this one post. We…I mean they were just trying to have fun. The snobbish looks and what seemed to be offense at our very un-blackened presence was laughable…even more than our drunk-dancing.

AH: Okay Queenie, let’s learn about something called having the courage of your convictions. Just because you don’t think before you write doesn’t mean I’m going to hold back from you.
After a little backlash your conscience kicked in

Hypocrisy much?

AH: Woah, dude… Way to take ME seriously!

Seriously, get away from your keyboard and get a life. Just leave it.


Context much???

Be careful using the word hypocrisy Newbie, given that you are at your keyboard engaged in the same activity…

– I’m sorry JB, I will leave well anough alone now, my life is there to be gotten.
