Halloween and Wikihow: Hilarious


I can't quite tell if the following articles are genuine or insulting:

How to Be a Goth!: Not at all fucking stupid.

How to Be a Classy Goth!: In other words, how to be all the minor characters in Ann Rice novels without being rich or having any actual class.

How to Write Serious Gothic Poetry!: If you aren't dead or addicted to laudanum, isn't that an oxymoron?

one time I saw this girl's myspace page where she talked all about being goth, posted her goth poetry, pictures of her dressed in black, etc. Then in her profile she said her favorite tv show was 'Two and a Half Men". I laughed about that for a long time.

There is ample fodder for laughter with DeadJournal as well.

Seriously, I can always make myself feel just a teensy bit better about the world by laughing at other people.

A spoonful of schadenfreude makes the medicine go down.

You can like a funny TV show and still be "goth"

Kathleen said...

oh noes!! she found me!!

Chuckles said...

Well, sure. You can be "goth" and still like Two and a Half Men, but can you be goth and like it?

Also, isn't the bright, cheery hopefulness of network television the antithesis of the dark and brooding worldview of the goth? Or is that just "goths"?
