… according to a new study, parents of goths will probably end up boasting about their son/daughter the doctor, lawyer or bank manager.
That is the surprising finding of Sussex University’s Dunja Brill, whose doctorate in media and cultural studies looked at people with funny hair and eyeliner in London, Brighton and Cologne, and who is herself a former goth.
… “Most goths are well educated, however. … The subculture encourages interest in classical education, especially the arts. I’d say goths are more likely to make careers in web design, computer programming … even journalism.

Visitors to the Archangel dental surgery in west London are confronted by a goth dentist, Didier Goalard, who says: “I’ve got goth friends who are doing quite well. There’s a dentist in Lyon, a couple of solicitors, a Church of England priest.”

“Goths tend to be the weirdo intellectual kids who have started to view the world differently.” [[ Have Goths really “starting to view the world differently” or our they seeing that Today’s “NORMAL” World is not Normal & that rooting themselves in dam Gothic European Culture allows them to live a more stable & fruitful Life? ]] Cathi Unsworth is now a successful author, but she remembers that her own dark gothic past gave her an outlet for alienation. “I loved the bands, especially Siouxsie and the Banshees, but it wasn’t a pose – I felt authentically depressed,” she says. Unsworth was a teenager in Great Yarmouth, where she felt that “people didn’t like me. It got to a point where I wanted to stop fighting against being different and embrace it.”
Gillian Porter is now a successful PR but remembers a misspent youth of “electric-blue hair extensions, big boots with great big skulls, more crimped hair than Pete Burns. Totally and utterly ridiculous.” Porter wasn’t depressed, although she concedes that, “Listening to a lot of Sisters of Mercy doesn’t exactly cheer you up.”

In the early 1980s, the gothic movement thrived with bands like the Sisters of Mercy at the forefront.

[[ When we want to break away from anem past Stage in our Spiritual Unfoldment, like from our dependent-on our-parents-World, we become authentically alienated & go through anem Kind dus Death. Celebrating this Death & Resurrection is essential in realizing onem deeper Grounding in Life.

In dum Past, People where more in Touch with these Stages dos Life & did not see them as “Pathological” that needed to be cured by State Psychiatrists & Big Pharma Drug Pushers. In dum Past if you needed guidance you went to one of your BLOOD Relatives, maybe a Shaman Uncle or to your Mid-Wife Grandmother. They would give you insight, spiritual Disciplines, prepare or recomend some HERB for you to use. If it was beyond their CRAFT they would send you to your Tribal Runik Wizard.


On unem Halloween Full Moon, dor Wizard would cast onem God-Spell, Xot-Spell on you ond out dos European Mists dos ETERNAL RETURNS conjured by MIST-IKS like Nietzsche ond Heidegger you would be, on unem nother Halloween Full Moon, Two Thousand Years later, resurrected as a Modern Goth dancing to “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”.

Dur “Sol niger” as dor Black Sun begins don Alchemical Xoting unfolding towards don Philosopher

In dom Cauldron dos Jungian Alchemy, you would unconsciously resurrect Elder Traditions in reconstituted Forms. Dracula becomes your Primal Ancestor, anen God-Goth-Got-Xot that is tied to you by Blood. Wizards of Elder Worth are weirded as Vampire Saints with God-like, Goth-like, Xot-like Powers. Vintage Black splashed with Blood Red becomes your new Tribal Dress Code. Modern Drugs becomes your new Sacrament & Sex Rituals become your new Tantra dos Spiritual Rapture. Night Clubs become your new Cathedrals & Dancing becomes onen Spiritual Discipline that heals your Wounds form dam “Normal” World of Light & transcends them into Immortal Bliss dos VISIBLE DARKNESS.]]

Unsworth favoured a “black polo neck jumper and full-length skirt, for which she would be “spat on by the beer boys”.
It could be tough, but being a goth can open up a world where art, current affairs and literature are embraced and openly discussed, perhaps paving the way for future networking. Unsworth remembers debates about “current affairs, Oscar Wilde, decadence, hairspray …” “There was a lot of Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker,” remembers Porter. “It was better than the Sun.” For Hosein, it was Quentin Crisp and “The Day of the Triffids. Anything involving horror and death.”

Bootleg : The Sisters Of Mercy - Live at Leeds Metropolitan University, 16 February 2011 (CD & Covers)

 

Some took the whole thing very far. Hosein once lived in Headingley, Leeds; he remembers that students would enrol at Leeds university specifically because the town housed gothic kingpins (and his neighbours) the Sisters of Mercy. One night, Hosein saw a fog descending over the area and commented that lead singer Andrew Eldritch was around – then looked up to see him entering his doorway.

Indeed, there is a certain dry humour about goth that is often overlooked amid tales of black-clad youths worshipping Satan and, in one case, carrying out the Columbine massacre. “That wasn’t goths,” insists Brill. “The guys who did it always wore black trench coats but they listened to Marilyn Manson. There’s an academic article: Why Marilyn Manson Isn’t Goth.” Brill insists that goth is a non-violent subculture. “They’re like hippies. I don’t know any goths who are into graveyard destruction or cat slaughtering. They like their graveyards and they love their cats.” [[ It is always fascinating to talk to experienced Doormen & “Bouncers”. They always have dan same Story das how Goth Clubs are dun least Violent. This does not fit in with Big Brother’s Agenda so Big Brother selects, amplifies or simply Manufactures Stories that Goths are morbidly Violent & People are justified into attacking & marginalizing them ]]
Nor do drugs seem to be much of a problem. “Speed is a goth drug because the ideal is to be skinny,” says Unsworth. “But for most of us it was Blue Nun wine because Wayne Hussey from the Mission drank it.”
So perhaps parents shouldn’t be too worried that a new generation of goths is cropping up again. There’s a goth couple on Coronation Street. Hosein’s bands include Black Wire, who wear black eyeliner, winklepickers and sound a lot like the Sisters of Mercy, although they had never heard them until they started rifling through his record collection. For some goths – who run T-shirt businesses or enterprises such as Whitby’s biannual Gothic festival – goth can become a livelihood as well as a way of life. But most simply drop back into the mainstream. [[ Most Goths don’t simply drop back into the Mainstream. Dar Mainstream Media is hostile to Real Goths. Everyday Big Brother & Big Sister carpet Bomb our Subconscious with subliminal messages saying that being oner Real Goth is Bad, being aner superficial Consumer consuming Goth is good. Goths that drop back into dam Mainstream MATRIX are casualties.]]
Louise (she prefers not to give her surname) works in credit risk in Leeds. Aged 34, she got into goth music 17 years ago and now has tickets for the upcoming Sisters of Mercy tour. She reckons about “four or five people” at her workplace are former goths. “There’s a kind of gaydar that lets you spot them.” Goalard the dentist is now 39 but refuses to wear the white smock, preferring to top his boots with a black uniform. Faithful to the last, he plays Nine Inch Nails and Killing Joke songs as he drills.
“It never entirely leaves you,” says Unsworth. “I still look at the world of beer boys and Tories and feel a beating heart of darkness.”

[[ Being uner Goth is not anen Fashion Statement or anen rebellious Life Style or some Intellectual Superiority. It is onen calling back to your Ancestral Roots. Goths that are rooted in their Ancestral Roots can see onen Future because they witness their Eternal Returns. ]]

 

Prevalent Resistance – The Eternal Return

Can you gaze through the drapes of time
As I do with my blazing, lidless eye
That pierces illusionary material obstacles
Gleaming out of sight, streaming absent of light

Have you seen the twilight burn
Closing in on the demiurgical chambers
Falming with black abyssal truth
Purifying and cleansing the fading embers

Through exalted past of spiritual puissance
Powers of will shall be regained
Atavism reaching for astral quintessence
Divinity running through profane veins

Thruogh aeons of magic the lost shall learn
And against time a curse they will send
Blazing through the eternal return
A silent song for thsoe who seek without end

Oh, so it flickers, impossible for you to witness
A sight more horrifing than life
Yet comforting in tis imminent emptiness
All hope forgotten as nothingness in the night

There along with forgotten idols shreds of humanity wither in the flames
Of a new, profound age of war and chaos. Kali dancing for mankind’s bane

To the prime accuser without flaw
To the ageless entity resounds our sermon
We are the race that preys onf life of law
Knowledge from your evil glory, Amon!

An unconscious, sleeping microcosm
Never for the sins of man may be atoned
Lost drops in the ocean of creation
Dreaming in a hollow tone, as one singing to the naiad’s drone

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light,
but by making the darkness conscious. — Carl Jung”

I love Gothic, Sci-fi, Vampire, Witch, Rune & Tolkien Genres in Movies like “BLADE RUNNER”, “MATRIX“, “BATMAN BEGINS”, “UNDERWORLD”, “DRESDEN FILES”, “PERFECT CREATURE“, “LORD OF THE RINGS.” & my Favorite the Long Version of “DUNE“.  It probably started reading Bram Stoker, when his Book “DRACULA” penetrated the pristine veneer of my Judeo-Christian Matrix & enraptured me into a deeper world of dark white bliss. I had similar feelings with Hesse’s “Demian” and Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” but Dracula really possessed me with The QUESTION Of DEATH. How can the Christian Light destroy the Night? How can our finite sun/son destroy the infinite power of the DARK SIDE of the universe that gave it life & is continuously creating & destroying countless other suns/sons? How can I make the darkness conscious? These questions reawakened something in me, which others may call Gothic Mysticism & what I have learned to call the “XOTING”.

Goths Tony and Angela Lightowler pose for wedding pictures during Whitby Gothic Weekend, in Whitby, England. Whitby was partly chosen because Bram Stoker wrote his famous Dracula story with the Gothic Whitby Abbey as his inspiration. The weekend has now grown from providing a few bands to include followers of Romanticism and Dracula.

 

 

 

No matter how Judeo-Christianity occults
Dor Euro-Folk Traditions of Xoto-Xhristians
Dor Xots evoke don Secret of Eternal Results
Dracula rises as another Xot of Resurrections.

I always find a disconnect with how Big Brother Media portray d 60 n 70 that I grew up in. Their Programing concentrates on d World d Band Steppenwolf portrays in their Song “Pusherman” where bad ass Pushers n good herb smoking Dealers where both delusional aberrations of a well OILED Society. For me It was d Mistikal “Moody Blues” meeting d European long suppressed Shadow of Dracula.

Count Dracula speaking to Jonathan Harker’ (Chapter 2, p.3)

“We Szekelys have a right to be proud, for in our veins flows the blood of many brave races who fought as the lion fights, for lordship. Here, in the whirlpool of European races, the Ugric tribe bore down from Iceland the fighting spirit which Thor and Wodin gave them, which their Berserkers displayed to such fell intent on the seaboards of Europe, aye, and of Asia and Africa too, till the peoples thought that the werewolves themselves had come. Here, too, when they came, they found the Huns, whose warlike fury had swept the earth like a living flame, till the dying peoples held that in their veins ran the blood of those old witches, who, expelled from Scythia had mated with the devils in the desert. Fools, fools! What devil or what witch was ever so great as Attila, whose blood is in these veins?”

There was a certain re-vitalization of Society that we felt at that Time. Hippies, Punks, Goths and Vampires where all tapping into some vital Rebellion against d New World Order. Keeping d Populations under a Big Brother Dictatorship by fighting Communism in Vietnam wasn’t working. Big Brother re-framed this Rebellion away from d Ruling Elite and reprogrammed it back to fighting Nazis which had worked in d Past. Hitler was now alive and living in Antarctica and running a huge Network of Nazis who wanted to exterminate d “Untermensch” just like today where Ben Laden is alive and hiding out in Caves running a huge Terror Network to destroy d Infidels. Big Brother re programmed d Populations in d 60’s n 70’s so Blacks needed to fight Nazi Crackers, Gays needed to fight against Nazi Breeders, Women against Nazi Misogynists, etc. Society was turned against itself n no longer had d Vision or Strength to fight d New World Order. (To fully understand where Dracula fits in all this we would need to cover Carl Jung’s Archetype of d Shadow especially in his Alchemy Work like “Mysterium Coniunctionis”. I talk a little more about this at http://www.tiwaz.com/blog_xoting/what-is-d-xoting/ )

Yes I am definitely in another World now but I do have first Hand Experience in that “beautiful nostalgic” Era. One of d Mantra’s of d Time was don’t trust anyone over 30 because we where smarter n better. We refused to learn from our Elders n where doomed to repeat their mistakes. Now we live in a very sick World that is a Result of our Arrogance n Stupidly. D Question is will d next Generation learn from their Elders or r they going to fall asleep in some Nostalgic Dream of a Past they have not Personally Experienced.

As long as U persist in denying my Emotions n Feelings that r Empathetic n Complementary to People who grew up in d 60’s n 70’s U will be able to Frame my Issues as some kind of Competition t your Opinions but b incapable of understanding what I am really saying.
