Tribe Search: gothpunks
Here’s a listing of all the stuff on the Freak nation site that might be of interest to the Goth/Punk/Industrial scene:
- What Happened In Montreal (Opinion/Editorial Piece)
As a gamer, and a goth, Kimveer Gill may have been a freak. But when he walked into Dawson College three days ago and became “Trench, the Angel of Death”, he was not behaving as a freak. Instead, he was sinking to the level of an animal. Freak Nation Webmaster Kai MacTane opines on Gill’s failure in this editorial — the Freak Nation response to the Montreal tragedy.
- sfpolygoth (Mailing List)
A list for SF Bay Area polyamorous people in the gothic/industrial, fetish/BDSM, and related scenes. Lightly moderated, open for event announcements, debate, and general chit-chat.
- From Dreams or Angels (Music Review)
This self-produced album by Seattle-area goth rockers Abney Park has a few flaws here and there. In the main, however, it’s a solid collection of fresh and original tunes with an aesthetic that’s recognizably goth, and yet also new and different. Abney Park is a creative artist that promises to revitalize the gothic-rock genre with an otherworldly, mystical sound that nonetheless packs a powerful, danceable punch that promises to fill the dance floors at clubs everywhere. Reviewed by Kai MacTane.
- The Great Firewall vs. The DMCA (Opinion/Editorial Piece)
How can the US Congress criticize tech firms for cooperating with the Chinese government, when the US Department of Justice is sending them subpoenas asking for their help in reviving COPA, a censorship bill that’s already been struck down by the Supreme Court?
- The Bride Wore Black Leather (Advice Column)
Who better to review Drew Campbell’s “etiquette gude for the rest of us”, The Bride Wore Black Leather (And He Looked Fabulous!) than Freak Nation’s own advice and etiquette columnist, Ms. Alternative? (The short story is, Campbell’s book is fabulous, too.)
- The Freak Nation Manifesto (Site Information)
Statement of purpose for Freak Nation, and description of the seven major freak tribes that make up our nation.
