May, World Goth Day and all that stuff.

I haven't blogged for a bit, mainly because I didn't have much to say and didn't want to write anything just for the sake of it. However, World Goth Day is creeping up fast (only just over a day away now from this point) and I feel slightly obliged to get a few words down.

This year, more events have been announced than in 2010 and from a personal perspective, I'm very pleased to see the Middle & Far East also announcing events in Beirut & Singapore. Not the most likely of places on the planet, granted, but that's got to be half the charm.

Media interest has been healthy, with regular articles appearing in Dominion Magazine and hot off the press so to speak, LA Weekly, and as recent article from renowned US blogger Bryan Reesman.

It occurred to me that the few writeups I have haven't been properly consolidated, so here is what there is so far which relate to World Goth Day that I can find:

Bryan Reesman's latest WGD Blog:

Thrash Hits (from 2010):

Fadeout will be a 2-hour World Goth Day Special on both Phoenix and Nightbreed Radio at the following times:

Because I'm that kind of guy, the show will be made available as a podcast at the following day.

Anyway, have yourself a lovely World Goth Day and if you happen to take & some photos of what you've been up to and put them online, send a link over to info at worldgothday dot com where I'll try & compile all the links on one page.


  1. Am thrilled how well the media has picked it up this time, ironically more than the number of followers has for the facebook page, but it is looking great, maybe next year I will do one of the official things for it! Keep up the good work!

  2. Thank you for both the comment and for being part of this annual rollercoaster ride!
    I've updated this blog to now include Bryan Reesman's latest article now.

    Assuming we don't get interrupted by any pesky random Raptures next year, here's to WGD 2012 and beyond!
