It’s the 4th annual World Goth Day today, 22 May 2013 (5th in total) and, just as we do every year, we thought we’d celebrate by celebrating goths with a few re-posts and as much new goth stuff as we can think of. This is what it’s all about, if you don’t know…

“World Goth Day is exactly what it says on the wrapper-a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate its own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world. This day falls on 22nd May of every year. The purpose of this site is to centralise as much as possible everything you would need to make World Goth Day a success, and therefore make the goth scene a success in your part of the world.”

Goth Cruise (The Movie) hits The Sunshine State

goth cruise thrash hits

When 150 Goths take an unlikely cruise with 2500 regular cruise afficionados, someone has to film it. This is how Goth Cruise came to be.

Goth Cruise is a feature film studying the enduring allure of Goth culture in the UK and USA. Filmed on board a 5-day cruise from New Jersey to Bermuda and back in October 2007 it looks bloody great.

English director Jeanie Finlay began the project by asking some key questions about Goth culture such as, “How do grown up Goths earn a living, raise families and have fun?” Intriguing, but not as intriguing as, “Just what the hell happens on a Goth Cruise?”

She came out of filming the ‘Gothumentary’ having learnt a few things like “Goths love karaoke and hot tubs and cocktails”, “every woman should make room in their wardrobe for at least one corset” and “little old ladies from Jersey love Satan”. That’s what happens on a Goth Cruise.

There are no plans for a UK release as of yet but there will be a special sneak preview screening at The Cuban Club Theater in Ybor City, Florida on 8 August 2008 at 8pm.
