things are a changing. i discuss the current transformation of nightclubs in the goth scene. i discuss my local cities experience and how they are transitioning to online dance parties. i also discuss how this new experience due to stay at home orders opens up opportunities for other marginalized groups who previously couldn't go out. in my opinion the goth life got better thanks to corona through digitizing a good time out.

here we are, a catch up of fully what happened to my with my physical and mental disabilities in fall of 2019. grab a snack, get your chores or hair ready, it's another long one. those out there in youtube land who are also disabled lets kiki about it in the comments section, are you experiencing similar things in the u.s. healthcare system like i am? the goth life includes learning to be comfortable being a person outside of societies norms and being disabled puts you in that position.

woo hoo. i got another donation towards my annual canva membership. we're getting closer to the goal of $125 needed for the fee. i'm trying to increase the quality of my posts i share wit ya'll. any amount of donation helps. check out this post for the details: https://bit.ly/37LTvKs

this episode of the series focuses on alela diane. she is someone who has such a nurturing voice as well as a very deep emotionally expressive voice. it's easy to feel cared for or calmer or safe in her music or to feel seen and heard during her more intense and tough topic songs. the goth life includes finding inspiration in singer songwriters.

thank you for your consideration!

in this episode of my music that gets me through series we're going to go over some amazing songs from singer songwriter sharon van etten. and as with everyone in this series, her work isn't in the goth subgenre of music. however, she does go over darkly inclined topics and feelings. hopefully you can find the same comfort feeling of being understood and that you're in a safe space like i do when i hear her voice. the goth life is learning how to deal with dark emotions as well.

https://youtu.be/q8m9IftmSJo

i made it! time flew and i didn't realize it. so what exactly did i make?

i made 200 videos on youtube!

https://youtu.be/Kd5zpEXHHaI

i can't believe i already did this and in completing 200 videos i've overachieved this milestone already early in my youtube career.

recap with me the journey from video 100 to 200 and the things that have changed within my creating them. see my growth, new additions, and future goals. the goth life includes being really excited and engaged to do your part to keep the movement growing.

we got our first donation towards an annual canva membership!! now we're 15 in. i have until 8/9/2021 to raise the rest of the 110 dollars. can you help me blkemland?

sarah is an artist that is near and dear to my heart! she has been a go to for decades. if you haven't heard of her tune in to learn a bit about her style and listen to some of her amazing songs! i'll be sharing some songs of her's from the 90s and early 00s. the goth life includes enjoying dark themed music in general.

let's look to lupita to explore more gothic/dark clothing and style from the black perspective. this can be inspiring to try different hair styles, makeup, accessories, similar types of main pieces or just appreciation for one expression of gothic and dark alternative fashion on black people! the goth life is taking inspiration from others.

sorry about the abrupt ending! it was bound to happen, finally lost some footage or thought i recorded stuff that didn't record.. other than that this is showcasing the pet shop boys. this band has a huge catalog and spans decades. the focus i'm putting on here are songs that encourage and empower me through those hard times!

decided to share some of the music keeping me through days where the struggle is reall and i am focusing on making it different lately. phantogram is a huge band for me for times that are hard. hard times calls for good emotional music! the goth life includes finding motivation with darkly inclined music outside of the goth music genre.

in this next installment i discuss emily haines, front leader of band metric's side project, emily haines & the soft skeleton. she recently did a newer album for this project too.

i showcase crowd surf off and cliff and the last page as samples and give a little blurb of what speaks to me. the goth life is enjoying dark themes outside of the music genre at times too.

what happens when you mix rupauls drag race, goth aesthetic, and goth music? you get the awesome drag queen aja and some of her work!

https://youtu.be/eAbkTbQF18M

aja is a drag queen who was a contestant on rupuals drag race and rupauls all stars drag race. aja is a black person who is queer and does drag performance. recently they have been focusing on music and created an always alternative reference, music video look, lyrics, or sound. here i'm showcasing the tunes created with a primarily goth focus! the goth life includes queer people too.

this is a new music theme of my channel that's a long time coming. i'm finally going to start sharing the music that gets me through, keeps me alive, and hears me when i feel i'm at my lowest and no one can hear me.

https://youtu.be/wTTMnznlK7o

but fret not it's nothing negative here or too dreary. i'll be sharing 3 songs from each band. and this series is actually going to be non goth music as i use goth music for fun.

marissa nadler is a long time bae of mine and deserves all the praise and love. imo she is easily goth music.

this is something i don't see talked about a lot. and all for the focus of social media discussing punk and how siouxsie sioux is so influential with a lot of goths i find it surprising social media rarely brings up this particular part of her and it being apart of their history.

https://youtu.be/mhyxBZjgaPU

what are your thoughts on it? should it stay burried? does it mean nothing and her music still slaps no matter what?
let me know in the comments section below!

i just kinda threw this out there. a few months back i created a what gets me through series...but i didn't explain why or what the purpose of it was.

https://youtu.be/JdouIqLAGYI

so this is a short breakdown! hope you get some more insight into why i have it on my channel. :) the goth life includes sharing things that aren't just goth subgenres but darkly inclined material as well.
