Unofficial Seething Sunday

People are more than how goth they are. None of us goth and never not goth. We all have outside interests. Though some of those outside interests might be questionable.

I have one such interest. Many years ago I used to DJ at an event called Neko Nation. The gimmick was Catgirls/Catboys handing out sushi. I was a troll DJ who took the piss out of the crowd and played music based on internet culture and memes. But I DJed under the name DJ Jelly so people knew what to expect.

We are getting the band back together after 5-6 years since the last event. Except now I am DJ J3LLY (due to a DJ Jelly who plays hip hop in the states) and the new event is called…

…wait for it…

Egirl Nexus.

Yes, an event for egirls and eboys! I didn't name it, it wasn't my idea but here I am helping to organise and DJ at it. This time the gimmick is egirls/eboys handing out Doritos and Mountain Dew. It is almost a celebration of everything cringy about the internet. And I'm going to make 'em dance to my tune and laugh like a maniac while doing it!

Hell… I used to DJ for pastel and nu goths through various geeky events. And I sure wasn't playing goth music at the time…

I floated the idea of turning up as Elitist Joe, announcing "You egirls and eboys have been dodging goth music long enough!" and playing a set of goth music. Other event organisers think it is hilarious and we may try it at some point.

So… you mad? Me J3LLY.

I just woke up from a nap so give me a minute… **sips coffee**

Welcome gripe-fans to another week of Unofficial Seething Sunday. Where the emotion is hot and the people are surly.

Surely I can't be serious? I am …and don't call me Shirley.

Bah, I need a drink. They don't pay me enough for this grumble grumble grumble…

Unofficial Seething Sunday

The hills are on fire and we have had a prolonged wave of hell. Today was a slight reprieve only to be thrust back into the furnace again tomorrow. It's just another Summer in Australia. Where the weather tries to kill you when the local wildlife can't be bothered. Ironically there was flooding in the riverland a week ago too. Oh joy, mouse plagues mean well-fed multiplying snakes…

I'm still alive. How are you doing?

It's a little early but it seems people want to jump in fast this week so here it is. There is a throwaway account post that was caught by the filter (I am half tempted to quote it in here, certainly the right place for it) and I see a regular poster is keen so let's do this. No frills, just fumes.

Unofficial Seething Sunday

Midnight. Two lone figures face each other at a distance under the full moon. Poised for what is to come.

A voice calls out…"Draw!"

The figures rush to scribble on paper and one shouts out "Done!"

A black-clad shadow approaches to examine the drawing. A wobbly circle with some squares and lines inside.

"This is the worst I have ever seen. Your shot is a miss."

As they finish the other figure approaches with their drawing. The circle is perfect, the lines crisp and nothing is out of place.

"This is the best freehand Bauhaus logo I have ever seen. You have won the duel. May Bela's belltower watch over you. The goth points are yours!"

The Mariah Carey Xmas music is in full swing and thus inescapable. The spamming of photos of depressed looking black-clad people with mall santas online can only add to this season of woe. Ha haha, its sooooo funny! The irony! We look sad but we are making a joke! Look at it! LOOOOOOK! We're being funny and you never expected it! Ho ho ho! Ha bumbug!

Get your rage pants on and don your itchy ugly sweaters to make you all irritable because it is that time of the week again.

Some days I wonder if I still have it in me. Can I seethe in rage at poseurs like I used to? Is it all just an act to be cool like all the other pissed off goths in the world? Will the dark table flip itself if I don't get mad?

Yeah. I've still got it. I'm just a little more diplomatic about its application. For arguing online the first rule is whoever gets mad and types a wall of text just lost. My spacing is fine. I'm going to keep telling myself that.

I'm pretty hammered right now so I hope this is legible.

Played records at City Record Club so that is why this is late this week. Damn I'm having to correct so many typing errors, my backspace key is getting a workout.

Anyway… I only played one goth song. So I will not be posting the list or video bit I recorded in r/goth because if I enforce the rules I have to practice what I preach. Or be a bureaucratic stickler to the rules. Whatever. Auto spell check you are my hero right now but why did you make me google bureaucratic because you only suggest autocratic? I did play some post punk including some Soviet-era stuff so yay for that. And Pigbag. Because Papa's Got A Brand New Peg-bag! Watch my youtube, you'll get it then.

I want pizza even though I ate at the pub? Do you want pizza? Let's get pizza.

Get those gripes in, r/goth isn't going to complain about itself.

You know what I could be doing right now? Sleeping.

Yes, sleeping. To say I am constantly tired due to lack of sleep is an understatement. Too many ideas in my head, too many IRL responsibilities, too many people relying on me to seemingly do everything for them. Pressure to put on goth events locally because it seems no one else wants to yet everyone wants to be entertained and we need more than just one.

Yet I'm not in the right headspace for any of it yet. Covid did a number on most of us and post-covid things are still weird. 2022 can't end fast enough for me, this year blows!

Speaking of doing things for people… welcome to this week's Unoffical Seething Sunday thread! You're welcome.
