Gothic Council Hands Out Some Goth Blocks

Stevie Ryan has finally shown Gothtopia the way. We had no idea we could use our darksome image to impose our will on the populace at large. Our proof? Her music video for "Goth Blocked."

It's nice to know that the goth community has this kind of power, but like any new tyrannical regime, we we're worried exactly what would be the best use of our iron fist. Such a question required the input of the Gothic Council, which we summoned by pulling them from a tiny top hat.

Joining the Council this week is Punky Moms founder Sarah Fanning; webmistress of Morticia's Morgue, Becky Plexco; Desiree Starke, blogger and hearse enthusiast, and for the first time we gladly welcome the feudal lord of all Houston gothic society, The Count of Montrose.
