    I really like Gothic style,

    but I don't honestly know much about the whole goth thing. I would quite like to explore the music genre. Let me have beginner recommendations?

    A Pause To Think

    The beauty of the architecture is incredible. Always something going on it somewhere. It isn't stark, it's active, and fluid, and seems to have a life of it's own. The music can be brooding, but listening to the lyrics, which can say so much. Full poems, deep with emotion...

    The Only "Goth" Thing About Me...

    Is that I wear black clothes almost every single day. But even THAT is being too stereotypical. I would NOT call myself Gothic; I just happen to be a fan of the Goth culture. My favorite band is Bauhaus, and I enjoy carrying/wearing their memorabilia, while everyone else...

    Goth Is So Much More Than A Trend!

    It's a way of life. It's beauty, seduction, freedom, expression. I love collecting pics of Gothic architecture and I hope to someday photograph the legendary Gothic cathedrals all over Europe myself. Gothic attire is so seductive and stylish! I’m not a Goth myself, but...

    Goth Is the Best!

    because it is just so me; I've always been drawn to the darker side of life, and when I first visited Paris and saw those gargoyles up on Notre Dame...I was in pure awe. I saw Mad King Ludwig's Castle only once, and while it is not Gothic architecture, it is just so darkly...

    Black is such a flattering colour. I'm a fan of Byron, a wonderful poet. Gothic architecture seems so grand and dramatic, must be the german in me.

    I dressed gothic when I was in my early twenties. And I listened to gothic music. I don't dress the same now, but I still listen to the music, such as Within Temptation (one of my fave songs, restless, candles, In perfect harmony, Icequeen, somewhere, memories...), I listen to...

    Memoirs of a Siouxsie and the Banshees Fan

    I love Sioxsie and the Banshees! Though, for some reason, I consider them a Gothic band. I do not know why. It has to be because of Siouxsie Sioux's awesome make-up. Or maybe the band's outfits in general.

    I am way too old to be a Gothic, but I find them fascinating all the same. I enjoy all their aspects. Mind you, I have not seen too many true Gothic's, but a lot of wanna-be's. They should google the word,'Gothic'. Anyway, I will say in all honesty, that anybody who has the...

    My friend in England got me into this band

    named eisenfunk and they are really amazing. Everyone should check them out. Since then I fell in love with goth music and I fell in love with culture by watching some videos on YouTube about it and learning about it.

    Goths Are Pretty :]

    Im not goth at all. As far as the style. I hardly wear black. Not that I wear pink. I like bright patterns. Anyway, I think goth girls are so pretty. I have no clue why, but they are. I don't even see them as mysterious or anything. Just WAY pretty :]
