Labyrinth Sarah forest

"Anything goes in a place like this..."

adjectivemarcus took me to see The Village last night - it is exquisitely beautiful and extremely harrowing. I'm glad to have seen it, but I think I'd rather not have actually had to watch it in order to have seen it, if you see what I mean. Frightening how many people will watch it and think of it as an uplifting love story. It is just gorgeous, though, in terms of direction and detail and setting. So if you're less emotionally volatile than me (and let's face it, who isn't?) then you should probably see it.

Fairly busy day ahead today, but not, I suspect, so busy that I won't have time to write things for the cyber boi stalkage community. Oh, wait, did I not mention that before? No, I don't think I did. wiresandroses.

Blame zellah - it really is all her fault. ~grin~

Much much love to those as want it.

Edit : Oh, yes, and. It is Tenebrae's last night at Gossips on Friday - possibly its last night ever. I am therefore going to go, because a) it's a crying shame, b) I might actually recognise some of the damn music by now and c) lots of gorgeous people will be there. You should join me. Yes you should.

Hmm. Meme.

1. Think of a word you would use to describe me.
2. Go to Google Image Search and search for that word.
3. Select the picture you see as most fitting, and post it (or a link to it) as a reply, along with the word.
4. Post this meme in your journal (if you particularly feel like it)

But only if you've nothing better to do. ~smile~ Just curious.

Well, fuck.

No Tenebrae after all. Bastards. I suggest in that case that we all head to The Dev on Friday night and I watch you beautiful people get drunk, and laugh.
They are trying to arrange a final night, but if it looks hopeful to you from here, I envy you your glasses.

I don't know why I'm so upset about this. I'm only a part time goth (though the other half of me goes clubbing at Gossips too) and while I can get very geeky about London's musical social history, I never went to the Batcave - because I wasn't born. Why should I care? I don't for a moment believe it means or heralds or is symptomatic of the death of the 'alternative scene' - heavens forfend that a scene should be so weak that the closing of a venue should come close to destroying it. I think what it is is that it feels like we are being whitewashed and painted over, like what we are being replaced with is somehow 'better'. I find that offensive. Especially if the damn thing starts pulling in people like the ones I went to school with - and you know it will.

There's nothing I can do about it. I can't say "Oh, I wish I'd made the effort to go to Gossips" because I *did*, absolutely whenever I could. It wouldn't have made a blind bit of difference if we'd all gone every night; I've met the new management. If they wanted a white-walled wine bar, that was what they were going to get, if they had to *threaten* us to get us to leave.

I am very unhappy. This is just part of a much wider unhappiness, but it's the only bit I can tell you lot about, I guess.
