Aesthetic Perfection? Yes, that sounds about right. Deep in the underground of rusty machinery, dim lighting, and shadow dancers is Daniel Graves shrieking tales of twisted romance in “A Nice Place to Visit,” a composition of manic, punishing electro that screeches and churns with all the precision of a boiler on the brink of eruption.

Sometimes the cyberpunk promise of the internet really comes true. A few years ago, people were still laughing about how science fiction had prophesied video phones, only of course nobody wants to be on video while they are talking. Today, all my more corporate friends skype and most of my more naked friends cam. Go [...]
It is always nice to see creative projects which embrace multiple media. Goth-industrial musician Bryan Lee of Snuttock works with a creepy recurring visual motif of antique dolls. See the photo of the artist below by Blue Flame Photography. Also check out the video by Laurie A. Smith for Snuttock’s Catharsis.
Sasha Grey plays the faithless love in the new video for Space Bound by Eminem. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (extra often if pressed): Eminem is one of the strongest gothic artists performing today. Space Bound is bullet-through-your-brains-brokenhearted level gothtastic.
I’m pleased that multiple sites, photographers, and talent in Blue Blood’s SpookyCash have also received nominations this year in the AltPorn.Net Awards for excellence in altporn. Blue Blood and Erotic BPM both got nominated for best AltPorn Membership Site – Multigirl/Community. Gothic Sluts was nominated for Best AltPorn Site Redesign and I think Forrest Black [...]
When the Sucker Punch billboards first went up in my neighborhood, I felt conflicted. It seemed, on the face of it, to have a decent checklist of things I would like in a movie, but I instinctively lizard-brain hated it. Upon reflection and now that the uniformly negative reviews of the movie are in, here [...]
I’m pleased that Blue Blood’s SpookyCash affiliate program has been nominated for Specialty Affiliate Program of the Year in the 2011 XBiz Awards. SpookyCash is kinda like the Amazon referral programs a lot of folks participate in, only it pays promoters more. If you run a high traffic gothic or punk or tattoo or fetish-oriented [...]
I was just checking up on Twist Magazine, which is a cool alternative webzine out of Sweden that I like. You’ll need a translator for a lot of the articles but they feature some great concert photos from current tours with bands like Dimmu Borgir and Skinny Puppy. Twist just put up a massive seven [...]
Our old school DC friends Ego Likeness have extended their tour in support of their recent album Breedless and if you haven’t had a chance to catch them live, you really should rectify that. I really like this album a lot. Donna Lynch has a beautiful haunting and powerful voice that sounds so good poured [...]
