NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has just become the Red Planet’s first public radio service, transmitting singer will.i.am’s new track “Reach for the Stars” to Earth.
On May 22, Goths across the world celebrate their subculture with a day of parties, concerts and events. An unofficial web site lists activities around the world. It also includes a handy list of favorite Goth things. Favorite author? Neil Gaiman. Favorite Band of the ’80s? Sisters of Mercy. Favorite Band of the ’90s? Fields of the Nephilim
Though, not Goth, your Tumblr has a soft spot for Siouxsie Sioux (“Christine” video above).
The day whipped up an email conversation between DiscoveryNews Editors, who all work remotely. So this was kind of our watercooler chat of the day. Here’s a snippet below:
From Earth Editor Christine Reed (How Goth is that title?)
I swear Goth has changed since the 90s! It seems more punk to me now and less true Goth as in gothic architecture and literature. The 90s goth had more poetic souls and less anarchist politics.
I wasn’t goth myself, but many of my friends were. The goth community in Seattle was pretty strong in the 90s! You would have had to have been pretty sheltered not know a goth.
Tech Editor Tracy Straedter says that zombies are the new Goths.
Every time there’s some holiday or event, there is a zombie parade or so it seems. There was just one in Boston this past weekend for Youth Pride day.
Give us a good Goth story. Are you a Goth? Were you a Goth? Are zombies the new Goth? What does Goth mean to you?
