The LiveJournal Revival community

Are you fed-up with sites like Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr? Do you wish your old friends who've migrated to those sites would return to LiveJournal? The the_lj_revival community has been set up with that aim in mind, and you are invited to join it. If you are already on LiveJournal and still have a Facebook profile, and would like to see more people returning to LJ or setting up accounts here, we invite you to post a link to this community on your Facebook Timeline. If you would like to find out who is still using LiveJournal and make contact with those who are already here, you are invited to copy and paste the 'about me' questions on the profile page and post them with your answers to the community.

LiveJournal is already getting busier than it's been for many years. Let's see if we can persuade our old friends to return and bump the activity-level up a bit further!

November WGW Bring and Buy Stall news
First of all, thank you to everyone who made the April event such a great success. We raised a total of £850.72 for Charity, which was amazing considering the event was relatively quiet, and the money has been sent directly to the Bat Conservation Trust. Thank you so much to all the volunteers who helped, we couldn't have done it without you! This means we have raised £9,458 since we started, and with a bit of luck we'll make it over £10,000 this November.
Apologies for this somewhat late burst of information, but as The Resolution have unfortunately been unable to offer us the function room this year, we have been a bit busy organising another venue! We would like to thank the Resolution for their help and support over the years, and wish them all the best in their new venture.
With the new plans firmly in place, we are pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of Jo Hampshire, this years Goth Bring and Buy will be held in the Spa Theatre Bar, in the main Spa complex (head down the corridor past the Theatre and its the room at the end). Hours of opening will be Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-4. All the information you require will be on our website ( http://www.goth-bringandbuy.co.uk/) including a downloadable form for your list. Don't forget to check the rules!
On that subject, because we really don't know what the situation is in terms of space, tables, etc - it's a new venue for us as well as you -  we're going to have to stick to rule 6 (no jewelry) and also cannot take hats, bags, etc - basically anything that would normally be laid out on the tables, as we don't know if we are going to have space to put them anywhere. Hence its clothes ONLY, though we will go out on a limb and say that we'll accept ONE pair of boots or shoes per person.
As always, we are looking for lovely people who are prepared to volunteer, and can offer an hour or more of their time to help. If you can offer even a small amount of time it would be really appreciated, and if you are one of these lovely people please email thegoths@goth-bringandbuy.co.uk and let us know when you are available! Help will especially be appreciated on set up (9-10) and take down (5-6 Friday, 4-5 Saturday) on Friday and Saturday, and of course on Saturday afternoon when everyone picks up their stuff.
Last, but by no means least, please help us spread the news of the new venue far and wide, so that everyone knows where we will be!
Kind regards
The Bring and Buy Team

15 years of The Calling - Cambridge's goth/industrial/ebm night

15 years of the The Calling is upon us! On Saturday 6th August, Cambridge will be celebrating the anniversary of the longest-standing goth-alternative night in the city, and unsurprisingly, everyone is welcome!

Come join in the revelry where we shall be celebrating the old and the new, from medieval to steampunk. Dressing up is entirely optional, however there will be prizes for the best-dressed in each category.

Despite it being a special event, costs will not be different - £4 entry, or £3 concessions. Opening at 9pm, closing at 2am - and DJs will be as follows:

9:00 - 10:00: Lucian
10:00 - 11.30: Wanderlust
11.30 - 12.30 - DJ Satan (ROQ, old-time Calling-dj!)
12.30 - 2:00 - Neko

Get your requests in quick if you have any - and do feel free to pop me a message if you have any questions. If you have facebook, have a look for the event, and for the new "gothsoc" group, as this is probably the best way to keep up-to-date with it all.

See you all soon - and spread the word wherever you like!

New book about goth out now!


Veil Of Vision has had the honour to be included in this goldmine of gothic history!

Book Description:

This is the first book to look at the impact of the goth scene worldwide, from its origins right through to the present day. From the UK's sprawling post-punk scene, Japan's highly visual movement, the USA's deathrock explosion and Germany's extremely popular Schwarze Szene, Worldwide Gothic explores how they all came about and the influence they've had on contemporary music and fashion. Spat out of punk at the tail end of the 1970s, goth became a major subculture in the UK with bands like Siouxsie And The Banshees and The Sisters Of Mercy scoring Top Ten hits and its fashion inspiring catwalk collections. After the scene died down in the early 1990s, it spread out to Europe where it attracted hundreds of thousands of followers and became assimilated with other muscial genres. This book also looks at how goth is now returning to its roots now with the emergence of dark rock and indie bands who pay homage to gothic greats like Bauhaus and Joy Division.

About the Author:
Natasha Scharf is a music journalist who specialised in alternative and gothic music. She was the editor of underground gothic publication Meltdown and has subsequently written for Metal Hammer, Prog, Classic Rock and Terrorizer magazines. She co-produced a documentary on the goth scene for BBC Radio 1 called Beyond The Pale and has been interviewed about the scene many times in the media, including on Radio 4's Woman's Hour. She frequently DJs at gothic events across the globe.

The Wasteland Setlist 2011
Ok, here's what we played, I think we managed to cover the range rather well - everything from The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing to Within Temptation by way of Gary Numan, Rhombus, OMD, Nightwish, Dyonisis, New Model Army and Inkubus Sukkubus! We're a bit light on huge Trad hits having gone mostly for smaller bands in that genre, we somehow completely forgot to play The Mission (Oops!), and also somehow completely forgot to play both Marylin Manson and Noisuf-X's "Dance Of The Knights" (despite playing it in the cottage before heading down!). But overall, I kind of think it worked.

Photos and other stuff
Whitby Goth Weekend: 24-27-March 2011 Whitby Goth Weekend: 24-27-March 2011Ok, so now the weekend is over, and I'm back home, it's time for the usual run of photos, and mine can be found by clicking on either of the photos here.

Broadly, we had a great time this weekend - the usual silliness abounded, and as part of Real Gothic FC I'd like to thank everyone who came along - we ended up with well over £700 raised for charity.

There was one thing that really got my goat over the weekend, though, and that was what transpired in terms of the Sunday night events that "replaced" Laughtons. I've gone into the weekend in full on my blog, but I've put the relevant rant in a cut below. I'm hoping that I'm not the only one thinking along these lines.

rant timeCollapse )

No matter what, though, I'll be back in November, of course, as we always are...

Victorian Clothing
Could any of you fine people point me in the right direction towards a Victorian clothing establishment? I have looked on the net and alas only come across online shops. I would very much like to try before I buy.
