blkstiletto said: Jillian, ever feel like us ElderGoth folk have small fortunes in our closets or lurking in storage trunks? ;-)

YES. But I am never, ever giving up my (battered, faded) Cure shirt OR my Bauhaus shirt from the Resurrection tour. (Besides, the Bauhaus shirt has bleach and hair dye stains.)

Okay peeps, help your Auntie Jilli out: is this magazine/book available in the US, or do I need to special-order it? The Cure and The Story of the Alternative 80s (2012)

Awww, I remember doing eyeliner like that! I do kind of miss it, but I don’t think it would look good with my glasses.

I am overcome with an urge to spend part of this weekend re-reading all my old issues of Carpe Noctem and Propaganda and wallowing in Gothy Nostalgia<TM>.

The ghost of my Tragic LARPing Past compelled me!

At brunch today, one of my friends mentioned that the tattoo/piercing parlor she was visiting that afternoon had one of the original “Mind’s Eye Theatre” box sets for Vampire: the Masquerade for sale. For $15. In a fit of nostalgia, I bought it. It has everything except the ankh, which is okay because I still have my original one from the long-lost box set I used to own. But yes, all the books, the character sheets, the silly plastic fangs, the blood capsules. (Hee!)

If you listen closely, you can hear the faint whirring noise of The Husband and the StuntHusband rolling their eyes so hard that they may never see again. I don’t care. I own my cliches.

This photo fills me with nostalgia for things that have never happened.

Have I mentioned that as a child I dressed up as the Wicked Witch of the West almost every year for Halloween?
