ravenevermore - "The muffin man?"
nevla - It's a hell of a question to answer, what with all the "What is goth" that goes along with it. Assuming, for the moment, that 'goth music' is 'music wot goths listen to', I think that everyone would be relieved if some new and good trad bands suddenly appeared, and if that were to happen then I'm sure there would be a trad resurgence that would drown out the bleep for a while. However, most of the really good stuff I've heard recently has been bleepy, and it does have to be said that goths tend to appreciate really good stuff. So as long as the majority of high quality music is coming out of the bleepy end - which IMHO it is, at the moment - I'd imagine things will keep heading in that direction.
As for what you said you wanted to do, y'know, I'd really like that. ~smile~
flannelcat - I don't know. I could tell you, maybe, why *certain* people are, but people in general? I don't know.
robinbloke - At Least It's Not Gingham TM
purplekaz - I've no idea. Ask one. They talk, you know. :) And yes, I'd love to get to know you, too. ~smile~
fluffymormegil - Is there something more you want me to do? ~grin~
kelemvor - All sorts of things, but I'm very bad at doing it in public or in company.
reddragdiva - ...hmm. Ok. I'll work on it.
heteronormative - From what I could see from your entry it sounded like it wasn't on terrestrial, so I won't be able to.
tacohell - Yes, absolutely! I love you, you daft thing.
spikeylady - Someone doing what they thought was the right thing, and thus, no, probably not. It's gratifying to hear at least two people ask the second of those questions, though. :)
lhiss - It's changed since then, I think. Mostly it was a threat because the answer would have entailed a lot of going "thud" and references to leather, and I just didn't think it was appropriate. As, indeed, I don't now.
I stroke people's egos for a quasi-living, yes, but you're an engaged man now and don't need someone you've never even met to be doing that for you.
Oh, and since you asked specifically, my response to your first answer is either "Mmm, Bolan" or "Yes. I know." Why so interested? :)
childeric - Alas, no, I have to be at home in Sussex this weekend. Coming to the last Full Tilt?
cujosmurf - Yes, definitely. :)
hatter - Yes. It's been ridiculously long. When, and where?
arkady - In order of your replies :
I did know that, actually. ~hug~
Yes. Yes. We must do that, and soon.
And - oh, god, I don't know. From here it looks like I might spend the rest of it trying to work my way back out of this absurd situation. Heh. But seriously...I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up being Really Fucking Famous for something, although whether as an opera singer or the world's first official By Royal Appointment submissive or what, I don't know. What else? I don't know. More of the same, I expect, which isn't a thrilling prospect but...but, it's what I do.
corpsie - In order :
I'm sure you told me that on Friday night. Didn't you?
Sounds like a plan. Do give me a shout if you're free to do that at any point?
And - you know, so many people have asked me that in the last couple of years, and I've never been able to find the real answer. I mean, the first answer is obviously "Because I feel guilty over whatever it is", but when it's something that is quite blatantly not my fault, that's just not enough.
The most concrete reason I can find so far is that (blah, blah, insecuity, blah) I like (not necessarily "need", I suppose) reassurance, and apologising for something often garners the response "It's ok" (or similar) - not much, perhaps, but when I hear it it's like the person telling me not just that whatever happened is ok, but that I'm ok, and that it's ok for me to be around them.
Now, why it wouldn't be ok for me to be around them in the first place is a different question entirely, but I think we covered a lot of that. Although by "covered" I obviously mean "got absolutely nowhere with over a long period of time."
There's more, but I have to get off the computer now so the boyfriend can geek for a while. Still, if there's anything else you want to ask I have no doubt that you will.
katyha - corpsie.
asrana - Well, I've been missing you a lot. ~smiles and snuggles~ What else? Going to the Ballroom, getting hit over the head by people who think they know what's going on, wanting people, getting turned down by other people...oh, you know, the usual. Miss you miss you Must See You Soon Soon.
olithered - Oh, I can use far less than 15 words. I only need one, really - "nonexistent". ~s~
~rereads~ Tsk. My mistake; misread. That said, I still can't think of fifteen words that I could use when "nonexistent" will do just fine...
bastard - Mozart - partly. I know it was finished after his death, but true to form I'm sure I can't remember who did most of that.
mopani - Not if it's up to me. (hair)++
potatoprint - In answer to your first point, wow. ~jealousjealousjealous~
In answer to your question, milk and as many sugars as is considered respectable in any given household.
devalmont - Probably, if you like that sort of thing, but there will always be other trees.
random_haze - In answer to your first point...oh, I really do, you know. I mean, I'd ask to be given a chance to prove it next time I see you, but I doubt that would be entirely appropriate. ~grin~
In answer to your question, it's mostly very bad memories from every time I've been. The first time I was left on my own, not knowing anyone, for nearly four hours; another time I had someone I loved say something extraordinarily unkind to me and ended up walking home, in the rain, at 3am. It's not been a good place for me. I'll go again, eventually, but it will have to be with someone I've not been with before.
rathenar - Sorry, I missed four people out completely! Am hopeless. Anyway, my answer...I used to count them, yes. I still count them, really, but I've stopped counting them when I talk to other people about it.
the_lady_lily - "I suppose a one night stand or something is out of the question?"
elves_uk - Sounds like a remarkably good idea, yes.
sparrowpunk - I have a huge black poet shirt that I never wear, I keep thinking of getting rid of that. Other than that, I kind of like all my gothy stuff. :)
ladycat - As for what you want to do to me, you are evil and wicked and I wouldn't object one bit, obviously. ~s~
In answer to your question, what exactly are you asking "Why?" about? If you're asking why it's my greatest fear (which it is), then, well, I could write a whole chapter on that. But it sounded like you were asking why I liked it, in which case I think you might have got your wires crossed, or be meaning something other than what I'm thinking of. Care to elaborate?
