Stars Don’t Shine Without You – World Goth Day 2016

Happy World Goth Day – and a very (Un)Happy Birthday to Morrissey!      Last year for World Goth Day, along with giving you a killer mixtape playlist, I wrote about not having a place to go and dance to the wonderful post-punk and Gothic Industrial classics I grew to love from the 80’s and 90’s. Not the case anymore!  If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you already know I am more than elated that The Phantasy in Lakewood, Ohio has started hosting flashback nights at least once every other…

Forbidden Fruit: A Lustful Mix

Love and sex makes the world go ’round – it’s a fact of life – and they offer for a lot, if not most, song lyrics.  Love. Lust. Passion. Where would we be without them?  What about kink and corruption? Now we’re talking… What is it about the forbidden fruits that make them so much more sweeter to taste? I think it is human nature to have some deviant desires. Of course I consider myself the unofficial queen of unconventional relationships, at least in my circle of friends. It’s no secret I’ve…

Dead Souls – A New Wave, Darkwave, Gothic and Industrial Halloween [mixtape]

  Halloween greetings to you on this chilly and cloudy day – at least here in Northern Ohio. As promised yesterday in my first of two great Halloween playlists, I bring you installment #2 – a New Wave, Darkwave, Gothic and Industrial mixtape playlist for all of you children of the night! This playlist does steal a few selections from my Grimly Fiendish Halloween mixtape from last year – but I did my best to keep them to a minimum and instead use the extended or dance remix versions. No New Wave/Darkwave Halloween…

Brooding Burgundy & The Melancholies

I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but this time of year always forces me back inside myself to think and contemplate life and its many complexities. Fall is my absolute favorite season, yet with this amazingly colorful season comes what I like to call The Melancholies.  This year especially, I fear the ever pending winter months ahead. I think back to not so long ago when my dreaded enemy, Depression, had me in its wicked and relentless grip, refusing to release me. I even resorted to going back on head…

Dance Mfr, Dance!

Last night has to be one of the best nights I’ve had in such a long time. I went to the “9 of Clubs Nite” at The Phantasy in Lakewood, OH – a musical flashback to the 1980-90’s gothic industrial scene. I cannot remember the last time I danced to this music in a club. It was the best feeling ever. I was a stranger in a room full of people, yet we all were of the same mindset – we were there to reminisce and take a trip back in time…
