Industrial Reconstruction of Self

Industrial Music. Hard-edged, rough and hollow sounds, most of the time with dark, smashing, in-your-face lyrics from bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, KMFDM, Thrill Kill Kult, and Front 242.   When I hear these powerful sounds from my favorite Industrial bands, my insides quake, making me want to not only dance but to become introspective and examine where in my life I need an overhaul – an industrial reconstruction of myself. It’s a call to greatness that I cannot quite explain. Industrial and Electronic Beats have this effect on…

And The Dance Goes On – Fall Mood 2016 [mixtape]

Every single Fall, without fail, my emotions start swirling around like fallen leaves caught in a brisk breeze. There is no rhyme or reason to it all either. It’s almost as if my mind decides to take an emotional dump on my logic and reason – thus bequeathing me with the daunting task of sorting through why I am feeling things I didn’t even care about not even a week ago. This time of year my emotions also like to rip open scars of wounds that (I thought) were healed. As if I didn’t…

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…

Peace of mind can’t be bought…

I found treasure not where I thought Peace of mind can’t be bought Still I believe   Just hang on Suffer well Sometimes it’s hard It’s hard to tell   It is winter, but there is no snow – not yet at least. Usually it is the snow, with its cold, lingering drab and grey dullness that causes my mood to drop into a downward spiral. Not this year. While we’ve been blessed with many sunny days and warmer than usual temperatures so far this winter, my body and mind know…

Why Can’t I Be You? – A Cure playlist

I don’t go out to clubs as much as I used to, especially dance clubs. I find the music of today filled with so much auto-tuned and musical garbage. Even the Goth clubs are filled with this new trend of “dubstep”, which sounds like Transformers having sex. What’s worse are the younger generation Goth kids who chew on glow sticks and twirl LED balls and poi to the music. Yeah, ok, so I’ve become a cranky old Goth chick. In my defense, I’m an old school Goth or OG –…
