Goth, The Way It Was Never Meant To Be

OK, now, maybe it's because I'm a former FogeyGoth (which just means I used to be an old goth, implying that I used to be gothic, before it was goth, then got old, then decided it wasn't any fun anymore and I wanted comfortable clothes), but Convergence has never been my bag (especially combined with my hatred for cons). But I understand it, and that's just fine if it's your thing. But, I gotta say, I'm having a hard time understanding how the IndustriGoth Con is pulling off a pirate theme...I mean, come on, pirates? I love pirates, but it's not Goth. OK, they have some of the same frilly shirts, but still...

Even funnier is the Goth/Industrial Dance basics workshop they're holding. Because, you know, it hasn't quite become commercial enough in the last 10 years, now we have to start officially teaching people how the basics of "Pushing Through the Spiderwebs", "Pulling Taffy", and "Catching the Bat, Kissing the Bat, Releasing the Bat". *sigh*

And, let's not forget Gothic Belly-Dancing, since some people want to branch out into other dance and art forms, but don't want to give up their fishnets, plastic-and-yarn ponyfalls, and PVC.
