    Goths. I just don't get 'em.

    And aren't they supposed to have evolved to Emo status by now?

    Yikes. Already a thread. Please ignore.

    He could have saved on the bus fare and just thrown a stick.

    If I was a goth, I'd want to look like him. Pinstripe tousers, shiny shoes... a smart coat, and not just one of those Robert Smith type messes.

    But what would you do about the face?

    He does look quite smart for a goth. Give him that. And his girlfriend is presumably house trained.

    A friend and I once went to the wrong nightclub after a prolonged drinking session and ended up in a giant hall full of goths.....................we were wearing bright orange and red Hawaiian shirts. You could say we stuck out a bit!

    I reckon he's wearing those weird intensifying contact lenses...

    And me!!! I ended up dancing with this 6 foot 7 one who was done up like a panda or something... or rather he was dancing with me and I kept shuffling away whilst trying not to offend him.

    Scary!

    And thus is the eternal question of 'How do Goths dance?' I never seem to remember - all I recall is a sort of shuffle, but I think that is a kind of 'My Bloody Valentine' shoegazing thing and not Goth dancing at all.

    Yup, something like it. But then again, maybe like this!



    Energetic!

    That's like the one I went to!!!! I don't know what the bloke talking over that was blathering about... it's just dancing.

    They should teach all styles of dancing in schools these days. Being a dancing chameleon is an underated skill.

    Now I watch again, the guy speaking is a total twat. I dance pretty much like that to any sort of music and in my experience most british people do after a few beers.
