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…

Dancing With Depression & Anxiety

  My nights out dancing at the 80’s music revival nights are bittersweet at best these days.   On one side I am enamored by the music of my younger, more carefree days. I get lost in the song and dance. At times I close my eyes and imagine I am still that young, naïve, and lost little girl, reveling in hearing nothing but the melodic whispers of youth, and a future filled with hope. When I attend these events, I almost always recognize a lot of faces – mostly from…

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…

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…
