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.

What’s Your opinion?

Katie – you may notice that JB posted the photo not the girls. I also find it interesting that you seem to think people aren’t allowed to get upset from insults. Are you a bully by any chance?

There are fat girls in every social group… Especially in the goth crowd.

So shut up already.”

C’mon Laurel – you can’t post a photo like that, (followed by the reply above) in a place like this and honsetly get upset about peoples reactions…

I dunno, I want to gouge my eyes out looking at that photo too…

*shakes head* people like you and Mary are amazing. Putting down other people from the safety of internet anonymity only proves how shallow and small minded you undoubtedly are. Even if you consider yourself a perfect 10 on the outside you sure aren’t on the inside.

It’s OK, though. I believe in karma.

I think the girls look fabulous.

Most real women have curves.
The degree varies, though.

I’ll take curves in a black leather bodice over a muffin top and uggies any day.

strange, the goths I know didn’t want to go to the grail, they felt that it would be filled with goth wannabes. they commented that by the picture, the gothic element was pretty toned down. how many people rocked up to the event who weren’t even slightly gothic?

and were there any goths who really looked the part?

Amusing that they are concerned about “goth wannabes”…. I admit I don’t know a lot about gothic subculture, but I thought that part of being a goth is NOT conforming. Judging people for not conforming to the percieved “correct” goth image seems to go against that ideal.

Well that was just nasty Queenie! To each their own, as long as you all leave me alone I say!

There are fat girls in every social group. There are also plenty of skinny ones. Especially in the goth crowd.

In my time I’ve seen more than enough fat skanky Moose girls melting out of their leggings and tank tops. At least the goth girls have some decency to wear things that don’t make people want to gauge their eyes out.

So shut up already.

Do goth gals only date goth guys? Coz i quite likes dark hair and pale skin but am not prepared to be all fake and dress similar just to pick up a vamp.

johnboy 3:52 pm 16 Aug 08

Let’s not be rude about people kind enough to be in our photos eh?

NIN is right up there in my top 3, and i quite like rammstein too. does this mean i am in denial of my gothness? should i come out as a goth? christ.
