Do you know of any blogs that post good goth/darkpostpunk sorta stuff similar to what you sometimes do
the two best blogs I know of for goth / post-punk / deathrock / etc are @postpunkindustrial and @comatose-bat; I’d also recommend checking out the In Depth Music channel on youtube also I guess my /tagged/goth if you want to go back to find something
9. Have you found any music that relates to your craft or that helps you work and express?
Enya lol, Muse helps sometimes, Celtic music, some Screamo. It depends on my mood. Whatever helps people.
13. Do you have any ‘witchy’ things you do daily?
Really witchcraft is within all we do, but art making is a big thing for me. Anything I put a lot of energy and focus into, which is normally art, my body, and my blog.
20. Is there anything in particular you study or know a lot about?
I know most about most. As a Wiccan I don’t work with curses, hexes, and influential or harmful magic. I also personally don’t work with demons, spirits, hedge witchery, death magic, sanguine magic, Voodoo/Vodou, and other types of craft. I always try to give people a link in the right direction because I do like to learn about new things.
Marinette: Reblogs cute graphics with encouraging words, animal videos, LOLcat-level memes and fashion inspo. Sometimes posts pictures modeling her designs that always get lots of notes even if they’re just mirror selfies
Adrien: Surrealist shitpost hell, reblogs every single post from justbaduns, never posts selfies because he doesn’t want his blog to be connected with his modeling
Alya: you fucking know what she blogs about
Nino: Posts pictures of his music setup and makes tons of joke text posts, mostly reblogs music. loves the what are thoooooose and John Cena memes
Ladybug Official: Reblogs graphics about safety and kids’ fanart, adds nice comments. Posts whenever areas have been cleared of akuma. Sometimes reblogs from Alya to make her happy but not often enough to be suspicious.
Chat Noir Official: Runs a submission-based blog for headcanons about Ladybug and confirms every single one regardless of accuracy.
Have a theme. Themes don’t make your lyrics boring, they make them cohesive. Think of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and its whimsical sky references (clouds, birds, stars, chimney tops). It’s about world-building that sweeps the listener away.
Try to stay away from perfect rhymes. Day and way. Run, fun, sun. They sometimes ring as childish, especially if the context is not interesting enough. Be more adventurous and less strict (fade and wait, mine and kind, crazy and maybe, etc.).
Make the context interesting. If you are singing the same old love song, say it in a different way. Build from real memories, real conversation, or unusual metaphors.
Put the rhymes in unusual places (internal rhymes, in the middle of phrases). It adds meat to the bones of your song.
Change up the rhyme scheme. An example from Pat Pattison, “Mary had a little lamb, fleece was white as snow. And everywhere that Mary went, she sold the fleece to pay the rent.”
Put the emphasis on the right syllable. As much as I love Alanis Morissette, she has an annoying habit of misplacing accents, making it incredibly awkward and difficult to understand (“an un-for-TU-nate slight,” instead of “un-FOR-tu-nate” in Uninvited). If you are dead-set on a lyric that stresses the wrong syllable, don’t be afraid to change the rhythm to set it right. You can also add or take away unimportant words like “that” or separating contractions. Personally, I know a lyric is right when it sounds as if I could speak it naturally.
Make your choruses more general than your verses. This is not a hard rule, but it helps to “change scenes” after your verse.
Be ruthless about clichés. Speak your lyrics aloud to spot them. When you find them (and you probably will), try changing only one word to something unexpected.
Keep writing different versions of the same section. You can always go back to the original, but you never know what you’ll come up with on try #5.
Don’t be afraid of the tools in your arsenal. Get a thesaurus. And a rhyming dictionary. Even if you don’t use the words you find, they can sometimes inspire other ideas. So can novels, newspapers, facebook updates, and people-watching.

you don’t get me twice - sleigh bells. gold trans am - kesha. rabbit hole - natalia kills. miss nothing - the pretty reckless. don’t give up - the noisettes. black sheep - gin wigmore. rebel girl - bikini kill. help i’m alive - metric. one girl revolution - superchick. get lucky - halestorm. glory and gore - lorde. the bullpen - dessa. lipstick & guilt - melody thornton. muse - o.c.a.d.. i hate boys - christina aguilera.
You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your ipod, phone, itunes, media player etc. and write down the first 20 songs, then pass this on to 10 people. One rule: no skipping.
