Goths Doing Things
What originally drew you to the goth meme world in which you live?
I’ve been writing memes for a couple years now, there was a void and goth memes seemed to be the perfect answer to that emptiness.
What exactly is a goth anyway? Are you a goth? Do you know any goths?
For some youth goth is a rebellious phase in their teens, but to the dedicated, goth is a lifestyle defined loosely by dark fashion, dark music, and generally stoic sensibilities. While I don’t identify myself as a goth, I appreciate and have a complex relationship with the term goth. I have a lot of gothic friends in Los Angeles and frequent all the goth clubs.
Do you get many direct messages? Are they nice or mean or neither?
It’s surprising because I do get a lot of dm’s, mostly from people who just reach out to tell me how much they enjoy the page. Goths are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, even though they might not look like it on the surface.
Who is your favorite Instagram account at the moment?
@iancurtisishungry is my favorite page currently, definitely worth a check out
Got any other accounts or spam feeds we should know about?
I have a non-goth meme page where I post all the non-goth memes I write called @tatum.strangely also check out @goingoutinstyle @newagecocaine @pixietang and @ambera.wellman; keep it gothic.
