::stares at music library in disbelief::

Wait, I never got around to importing the Trio Nocturna CDs? OR the Order of Dying Knights? Really, Self? I hope they’re in that one storage bin in the basement. No, not that one, that’s the one with the extra pumpkins and bats. 

Yesterday over on Twitter, delilahsdawson and @cmpriest were having a “retro goth off”. I figured I needed to share one of my photos from a NOLA cemetery. Halloween 1994-ish, I think? 
On that trip, I stayed at the house of the goth band Falling Janus, and went to the Anne Rice Halloween Ball as a guest of the harpist for Trio Nocturna. The entire trip was very, very surreal. Fun, but weird.

From the Wayback Machine (literally), the gothy paper dolls from the long-departed Blackened Angels clothing catalog. 1996, peeps. 

I see some of you unearthed this post again.

Set the Wayback Machine to 1992, peeps.

(StuntHusband, nudiemuse - WHAT was the name of the goth club that was downtown in that era that always opened the night with a swirly goth set that included this song? No, not the Catwalk or the Vogue - something like the Weathered Wall? I can’t remember.)

Back in the early 90s, when I was suffering my time in Retail Hell (aka Fred Meyer), Mattel had the idea to send Barbie on tour to various stores for events. I came in on my day off just to get a photo with her. Which was taken immediately after I cheerfully confided, "When I was a little girl, I used to pull your head off!"

Look! Look at babyfaced clintcatalyst! I do not know who the charming young lady with him is, but I’m pretty sure that they’re both wearing clothing from the long-gone Raevyn Clothing. How do I know that? Because that designer made my wedding dress and frock coat.

From the gothy prom post:

jadedhavok said: Your prom date looks like a mix between Ferris Bueller and Patrick Stump.

::sputters with helpless laughter, thinks about pulling “7 Minutes In Heaven (Atavan Halen)” up on iTunes::

It’s not that you’re wrong, it’s just that I never made that connection. Aaron, wherever you are, I hope you’re doing well, and that you’re still as charmingly eccentric as you were in 1988.

The Lost Art of Cassette Design by Steve Vistaunet

He had me at “Music for Cats!” but won my heart forever with “Rat Music for Rat People”

Ooooh, the nostalgia. There are times when I miss these sorts of cassettes.
