“You’re not Goth because…” Take your pick: Because you like a particular band/genre, because of your personal religious beliefs, because your aesthetics aren’t “Goth enough,” or even because you don’t know the entire history of the subculture. Whatever the case may be, if you’ve ever been told this or even said it yourself, congratulations. You’ve had an encounter with one of the most annoying, self-righteous pricks in the scene: The elitist.

Recently I had the pleasure of conversing with Brandon Smith, the mastermind behind the electronic rock project, The Anix. This year he signed to FiXT Music and released his newest studio album Shadow_Movement.
The 2019 DarkestGoth Spokesmodel search has been one of the most robust in our history, as finalists were challenged not only to submit galleries, articles, and videos, but also to promote their work and show that they were community minded in the process.
At the end of the search, one contestant perpetually worked their butt off and pushed the envelope. And even when confusion and miscommunication arose, they pushed through and corrected the issues as speedily as could’ve been expected!
The art of Casting a Glamour is an Old Hollywood term that is common lingo for movie stars, runway models, and the music industry. It is the art of illusionary magic. Some say love is an illusion, life is an illusion, death is an illusion, so why not add in the art of filming into the spectrum?

That’s one of the magical things about Gencon, the moment you get there, you feel a sense of kinship, of belonging. The air buzzes with geekery and fandom, and you feel home.
