Apropos Perfection

So, it’s not apparent to many, but I’ve got a goth streak in me.  If I had the money and the social skill back in middle and high school, you’d’ve seen me dressed in fishnets, spikes, and whatever dregs of the goth subculture was filtering down through Hot Topic down to teens about ten years ago.  Now that I’m halfway done with my student loans and will be free of obligation to pretty much anyone, I might actually explore more of that side of me, fashion and otherwise.  It’s on my todo list to take a walk through my dark side in contemplation before too long; I might just tack this onto my ever-growing list of NY NY tasks.  Also, I’m considering an industrial piercing in my right ear and a transverse lobe piercing in my left, and this is from the guy without any body modifications whatsoever.

Anyway, I recently got hooked on more industrial and EBM-styles of music again, and I just discovered Aesthetic Perfection.  Besides having the most awesome style ever, this song has very strong parallels to my current practice.  Talk about reclaiming one’s race, heritage, and value as a human being.

One day, I pray, I’ll be a human being; stay with me, and have faith that I can change for the world.  It almost sounds like something I could tack onto my nightly Headless Rite practice.

    I used to be goth-ish in high school. It was fun, and some small part of me misses those long Thursday nights in D.C. dancing away until 4am. I still listen to some of the music, though a lot of it is associated with a person who was a big part of my life for a while who isn’t any more, and it can get a little painful at times. It’s still good, though.

    Speaking of pain, get the industrial piercing. I love mine. Worth the pain, though you’ll never look at a Q-tip the same way again.

    Final reason you’re awesome: YOU USE ENTERPRISE TOO. great minds think alike! <3

      Agreed about the music. I actually had a post somewhere back down the logs with another music video (Temposhark ft. Imogen Heap, “Not That Big (Metronomy Mix)”. Music is powerful stuff. I’m getting both the industrial and transverse lobe piercings. If all works out well, I’m getting it in two days’ time. I make good decisions, herpaderp.

      Not gonna lie, I was considering posting on your blog just to say that you had a nice blog format. Clearly, we were meant to be~
