"The Frozen Autumn creates what the band calls "Frozen Wave", that is to say an original, innovative kind of Electro-Coldwave blends melancholic male and female vocals, atmospheric gothic-wave, and 80s-style electropop. The result is an artistic collage of seamlessly blended styles and genres. The new album, "The Fellow Traveler" is the finest work in the band's two and a half decade career. Featuring a cover of "Loving The Alien" by David Bowie. "

Goth Youtube: 1:40:48
In the age of the world wide web, goths have more opportunities to meet and share their thoughts than ever before. No longer do we have to create and publish our own zines, start a band, or run a goth event to express a sense of cultural identity and community. We are now able to project ourselves, our lives, and our scenes in HD video for the whole world to see and talk about. This has allowed our dark little culture to be opened up to a whole new audience of potential goths who may become seduced by the dark side and help create and participate in the culture, even if they don’t have a local scene. But does this type of access actually encourage goths to stop engaging with their local community? Is the emphasis on visual presentation having an adverse impact on the values and norms of the culture? That and more is what I’d like to explore this month.

In celebration of Halloween, Hallie reads the classic creepy poem, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe (who we now know, thanks to the previous episode, likely died of rabies). 

Please Enjoy!

We'll be back to our regular topics next time, although the next episode is also rather special. See you next time, and Happy Halloween!

There are hundreds of houses that people claim are haunted, sometimes just because the house seems creepy, or perhaps its owner is odd or acts in unconventional ways. One house that has been rumored to be haunted since the land its on was purchased, is the Winchester Mystery House.

What condition causes the suppression of fear, heightened aggression, and is transmitted by the bite of an infected creature? Sadly, even though this condition sounds like something out of a horror movie, it's real, and it's called Rabies.

This month we are doing things a bit differently, and will be reviewing the book Post-Millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance, and the Rise of Happy Gothic by Catherine Spooner. We will be discussing the impact Tim Burton, sparkly vampires, the creepy cute, Columbine, political discourse, Jillian Venters, and others have had on the cultural milieu of goth and the consumption of the Gothic in mainstream media.

Our guests this month are Natalie and Trae!

More Recommended books from this author:
Contemporary Gothic
Fashioning Gothic Bodies

Chapter 1: 7:00
-Thesis, Introduction, methodology overview
-Goth as a middle class culture of consumption

Chapter 2: 53:15
-Tim Burton and his reshaping of modern Gothic

Chapter3: 57:42
-The increased reliance of the visual in goth
-The politicization of goth through Columbine and Sophie Lancaster

Chapter 4: 1:22:44
Premise 1: In the post millennial era, vampires have sought to become the institution rather than the subversion, to become as human or amiable towards humans as possible rather than be the Other

Premise 2: Goths and vampires have shared a historically propinquitous relationship, often informing or appropriating one another

Conclusion: As vampires have grown more polite and reinforced the “happy gothic” so too have goths sought to remake their image in a similar fashion

Chapter 5: 1:37:37
-The modern goth girl and the "whimsical macabre"

Chapter 6: 1:47:05
-Camp and it's influence on goth and the assimilative monster

Chapter 7: 2:02:06
-Goth/Gothic masculinities and humerus monsters

Chapter 8: 2:19:36
-Whitby Gothic Weekend and the Gothic-carnivalesque

Conclusions 2:30:25

 

Sep 25, 2017

Murder scenes are often messy, but they hold a wealth of evi­dence in the form of blood spatter, bullets and bodies. Forensic investigators gather all of this evidence, but where do they start their search? The current system used for gathering physical evidence from crime scenes was created in a unique way, and developed by a very unique person; Frances Glessner Lee.
