The ones I saw didn't cross the road. They curled up near the center line and let their intestines go the rest of the way alone.

One of the many benefits of a prolonged absence from the U.S. and of totally ignoring contemporary music, television, and movies is that I actually had to look up "emo" on the internet to figure out what the hell it meant. I've still never seen one in the flesh or heard their music. And I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. I do get the impression that they're responsible for the proliferation of those narrow-assed eyeglasses that look good on no one, and for that alone I despise them.

Same goes for the goths, pretty much. They're just something I on rare occasions see on the sidewalk in Tokyo.


you definately aren't missing anything..

I am a goth, and yes I do admit it as it is obvious anyway so no point in denying it...

I saw an interesting shop in the area of Nippori the other day. It was a fabric store, geared to goths. My first hint was a goth-looking young lady entering the store. A glance in the window confirmed it. Nothing but black and white material in the whole shop, as far as I could tell.

I have to admit, some of the girls look really great in the black and white outfits, provided they leave that garish stupid-assed goth make-up off their faces.

Do you know more specifically where this shop is? It'd be swell if you not only remembered but took the time to post here. There's nothing like seeing something completely stupid (or cute girls) to pick one up after a less-than-spectacular day.

Were it not for concerns that I'd be feeding some bizarre pedo loli-goth fantasy, I'd be glad to.

I though that ゴスロリ was pretty popular. Or maybe it's just what I pay attention to.

I'm alternately fascinated and revolted at the concept of Loligoth....

There is certainly nothing bizarre about it, sir. It is not to be unexpected nor is it particularly incongruous. I need not remind you that this is Japan.

On an almost - but certainly not entirely - serious note, I am curious simply because I live near Nippori and quite possibly have an addiction to laughing at stupid people. Occasionally, I take pictures. Othertimes, I am driven by a desire to be aware my surroundings. Unfortunately, the Japanese seem to be getting kind of sick of that.

Sincerely,
-Eric
