Vintage Gothic, the blog

My good friend Shari has published a new blog called Vintage Gothic. It’s a beautiful place to learn about the Gothic lifestyle.

If you are like me, an Elder Goth, you will be thrilled with this blog. If you are interested in life from a Gothic perspective, then Vintage Gothic is the place for you.

Enjoy shopping? Well then, check out the Vintage Gothic Shoppe while you’re there. On this page you will find a great selection of tarot card decks, books, spirit boards, jewelry, statuary…so much yummy Goth goodness in one spot!

Shari does tarot card readings and I must say, she’s spot on. I just purchased my first ever tarot reading and Shari nailed it for me. Thanks to her, I have the guidance I need in relation to my writing career. Right now, she’s running a $5 reading special but you’d better hurry! The price goes up on June 1, 2016.

Please stop by and give the blog a look. I think you’ll be enchanted…and that is an excellent thing indeed. Vintage Gothic

If you haven’t ever seen the actual footage of the crash, I present to you the final flight of the Hindenburg.

On being Gothic

As long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to dark things.  Dark things are not evil things.  Dark things are deep things, and deep things intrigue me more than those fluffy little things that float lazily on the mainstream.  Mainstream, to me, equals mediocrity.  Mediocre things are death to my spirit.

Darkness inspires me, and I take refuge in all things dark.  At the risk of being labeled, (more…)
