Not going to lie, Morpheus and the matrix pretty much turned me onto the style of cyber punk , though musically, I get behind Chelsea Wolfe, who is like the southern gothic folk queen to my ears hah!

@JASMINE: Though there are only a couple of posts so far, I like your "Color Me Goth" blog and hope you post more soon... What you wrote about the "Baby Bat" phase of Goth is very true and I'm sure hits close to home for a lot of people.

My blog is in transition. it is no longer but So there might be a few issues on the site until the transition is final. The old url should redirect you but Feel free to test the new url and let me know if you have problems viewing it!

I have just started a new blog on my experience on being a goth of color and just being a goth in general. So far it has two entries already.

The blog is called Color Me Goth

i would really be grateful If anybody here checked it out and told me what they thought. I am already working on some tutorial videos to post as well some artist and musician reviews.

Comment by Brown Kitsune on August 5, 2011 at 9:42pm

Hey people! Im doing videos!

The video(s) will be about the members of Afropunk. Ill make videos about the Ap ladies and queens, guys, queers, and the members representing Ap.

1. Email me at:

2. Send 3 or 4 PICTURES of you striking a pose and being all badass.

3. When you email the pictures put your USER NAME in the

4. In the MESSAGE BOX put what your GENDER is.
5. In the MESSAGE BOX put if you want to be in the LADIES/QUEENS VIDEO, GUY'S VIDEO, or / and LBGT VIDEO.

The deadline for the pictures is August 20. I most likely will not finish the video until the first week of September. If I have too many pictures to fit into the video I will make another one. So if you don't see your pic in the first vid itll be in the second. The video will be show cased on afropunk's web site sometime in September. The video should be on the front page as a feature.

*Even though the ladies and queens video will be first, guys can still send pictures to my email.

Hope these directions are clear lol and I also hope to hear from you soon! ^.^
