What better way to welcome myself back into blogging than with a new post in my Alt Update series! I’ve successfully moved into my new place, but in the meantime I’ve been spending a lot of time trawling Facebook and other sites for spooky posts and alternative news. This time around we have:
Where My Goths At? It’s a question anyone in the subculture has probably unironically asked before. This post is all about how it was meeting fellow Goths before the internet was really a thing. I remember my old days of hanging out at the local Goth shop, listening to Marilyn Manson and gawking at Pleasure shoes I bet you I couldn’t walk in even today!
This isn’t quite a news or pop article, but you can’t go wrong with the Tumblr page Now This is Gothic. It really is 100% Goth.
I know we’re hitting a lot of Goth articles this alt update, but this one is probably my absolute favourite. 17 Unbearable Struggles of a Goth in The Summer. Is summer looming on your horizon?

Did you know that crows hold funerals? They’re also super smart! Just check out the video Crows Have Feelings Too.

Not all alt kids can stay dark forever. Here are the stories of 10 Punk legends now and then.
