my name is Benedikt and i follow LAM since 2008. LAM has always been to me an important and inspireing representative for the "Dark Subkulture" (i don´t like using "Goth" too much anymore).
I always look for opportunities to share thoughts with followers of this very subkulture and especially with people that are drawn to the same bands as me, since subcultures more and more dissolve in todays society and asthetics and depth do seem to play a minor roll. But Hey it is not dead yet and neither are we!
Luckyly I managed to make my passion for culture and asthetic also part of my (soon to be) job (1 year of uni left to be specific): I am about to become a teacher for Latin and Ancient Greek (maybe one of the few "Goth-teachers" on this planet? ;^) ). Call me a Hippie but i am convinced that this is one way to help shaping a society because I don´t like too much the one we are in right now.
However, i am looking forward to bowse through all your posts and also get an authentic impression of you Sean, who always appeared to be somewhat mysterious to me, who are you Sean?
