Entirely too much personal stuff stuff around here lately. Time to get back to what I do best.

I have no idea what that is.
Coming soon(ish, haven't seen any actual dates) to a theater probably nowhere near you, The Touch:
In a time of great danger, the Monks of Dun Huang hid the Sharira - a Relic with mystical power so strong; it had the ability to transform mankind for the better…or, in the wrong hands, for the worse.
Oh, right, that's what I do best. List disturbing obsessions. Ok then, Morbid Outlook - Goths of Color by Lucy Furr:
One of my g pet peeves are people I meet (and for those of you who are of color, you’re about to start laughing) who feel like they have to prove how unracist they are by getting into a big “civil rights” discussion, like they have to prove to me they aren’t racist. Why does this bug me? Because without fail the very same person will say something completely ignorant within a very short time period, like “Do you use a pick for your hair?” “But I thought black people didn’t like goth stuff” Or the all-time stupid comment “But you really aren’t that black.” This nonsense completely negates their previous statement of not “being ignorant”, by which I think they mean not racist, since most people believe that ignorance is what makes racism. On a certain level, yes, but ignorance is still ignorance (i.e. not knowing what in the world you are talking about). We are all guilty of it, even my friends do it now and then, and I do the same thing. However, they are my friends for one important reason; they never bothered to try and prove anything to me. They never had the above conversation with me. A truly non-biased person doesn’t need to prove anything.
Yes, I've quoted from the article before.
The article also has a photo of Lucy Furr in a corset.
And the main page of the site features the Morbid Name Generator.
I'm not going to look. I'm just not. Because I don't want to know.
