Is this a response to a "No Goths" rule that I've missed?

I'm not scared of goths though, and I'm not a goth either. Nobody rational (i.e. not paying attention to the Daily Mail) is scared of someone just because they wear black clothes and a bit of make up. I would stop bothering about what the Daily Mail publishes. (I am assuming that this is prompted by that article in the Mail about the "Goth menace", and not just a random "Oh My God, everyone hates me".

No, but there should be a "No text typing" rule.

See all those letters in front of you? Use them

Why would anyone be scared of Goths? The only problem I can see with them is that they can't type properly. An example of this can be found in this thread: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/collective/F97683?thread=...

Arf!

And here was me thinking that goth and emo was so over. Even Craig and Sophie have given up on it now.

Goths in belfast are more like those two of coronation street. Sort of posh kids by week day and goths at the weekend at the city hall.

Damn Straight. Those bloody city hall kids, hanging round the door of Katy's all day Saturday, discouraging punters from a days drinking and gambling, until their daddies come in their big German cars to take them back to their cosseted wee houses on the Malone Road....

In my day (I'm 26 now), goths listened to the Cure, Sisters of Mercy etc. and definitely not Metal. I'm a little confused by the sea change recently- it's only recently that kids/ teens listening to metal has become acceptable. Back in the mid-90s, me & my metal mates used to attract all sorts of the wrong attention on the mean streets of Aberdeen- these days you cannae move for kids in black hoodies. S'all really confusing.

Point of interest though- virtually all of my mates from that time who listened to nothing but metal are now into various forms of dance music (especially jungle & breaks), so it'll be interessovating to see how many of the future's Plump DJs and Meat Katies are influenced by Trivium. Evil Nine have showed that rock, punk, breaks & house can work as one. Just listen to their FabricLive mix for proof.

Got carried away with my previous posting- I realised later that I sounded like one of those limpets that write in to Planet Sound on Teletext praising the latest indie. Of course, I don't expect anyone reading a post about Goths to go out and buy a FabricLive CD.

Not that you'd mind if they did winkeye

it is interesting though, it's almost like in your teens people rebel against their parents' tastes, then in their twenties they rebel against their teenage self.

So...I'm rebelling against my teenage self? That old chestnut that we get more reactionary and conservative as we get older? My god...I'm turning into Victor "I don't believe you!" Meldrew. Surely it's that I'm a little more mature these days than I was then...

"Have you not read the article phil :

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/new... . "

I'm glad I don't read the Daily Mail - that's got to be one of the worst pieces of journalism I've ever read.

"Johnny Depp and the comedian Russell Brand, who is about 90 per cent Goth."(taken from the article)

How did they measure that? Is there a special test that you need to take?!

The constant comparisons of Goth and Emo really annoy me... I suppose that's because I'm a bit picky. Like someone else mentioned earlier in the conversation, if someone I know describes themselves as a 'goth', they usually listen to bands like Sisters Of Mercy and Inkubus Sukkubus. Certainly none of the bands that seem to pass as 'emo'.

Musically, Emo has more in common with Hardcore - since this is where it evolved from (Emotive Hardcore)... and, as some of you will now, Goth and Hardcore are two completely different genres.

I'd like to point out that I am neither a Goth nor Emo. It's just that things like this article annoy me.
