Emilie Autumn...News for the fans

I recently found out (maybe some of you already knew) that Emilie Autumn has realeased a book called "THE ASYLUM FOR WAYWARD VICTORIAN GIRLS".

What is the book about?

"Written and illustrated by the notoriously manic-depressive rock star, this chilling tale combines humor, tragedy, and suspense to produce a blood-curdling account of the nightmare that is life inside an insane asylum, comparing those from the Victorian era with our modern day version, and proving, through her own personal experiences, that not much has changed from then to now.



Culled directly from EA's real-life diary entries, the story begins with Emilie's suicide attempt and prompt imprisonment inside a psychiatric hospital. Sparing no detail, Emilie shows us exactly what goes on inside this house of horrors, exposing secrets that the general public could never have guessed at. Narrated with the sarcastic and self-deprecating humor present in all of EA's works, much of the subject matter may be considered controversial. Still, as in her song lyrics, Emilie tells the truth at all costs, thrusting the brave reader into a play-by-play narrative of her bi-polar episodes, even providing photos -- blood, cuts, and all.



The tale takes an unexpected turn when, whilst still in the psych ward, Emilie discovers evidence of a parallel dimension -- a world that soon becomes indiscernible from her own. As the days go by, the seemingly disparate worlds of the story's two lead characters (Emilie and Emily, EA's Victorian counterpart) begin to merge, leaving the reader, as well as the book's author, rather confused as to whether the accounts are truly autobiographical or whether EA has managed to seamlessly morph from true-life tale to extremely well-researched historical fiction.



"The Asylum..." is not all gloom and doom however. It is a reality-bending thriller as well as a profoundly empowering tale of suffering, sisterhood, and revenge that culminates in what is perhaps one of the most suspenseful cliff-hangers of all time. The book's colorful cast of characters (diabolical doctors, mental patients, and the talking plague rats and blood-sucking leeches that fans of EA's music are already familiar with) thoroughly entertain, educate, and engross the reader with prime movie material. "The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls," will leave fans shocked and readers everywhere gasping for air.



Each full-color page of this beautifully bound, 266 page hardcover is positively packed with hand written memoirs, fanciful paintings, and sketches of the Asylum's inhabitants. In perhaps the most perverse twist of all, this Rated R publication is cleverly disguised as a high-end children's activity book, complete with interactive elements including notes, craft patterns, and reader quizzes designed both to disturb and delight. This monumental show of literary and artistic talent demands a place on your tea table as well as on your nightstand, although, readers, take care -- you'll never think of your doctor in quite the same way again.



Prepare yourself to enter a world most pray never to visit. But beware: It is much easier to get into the Asylum than it is to get out..."

The cost of the book is around 55 US dollars and you can purchase it her official site.

Only Black?? Hell no.

Looking around on the internet and also on Stardoll I could see that many associate goth with the color black a bit too much. Most of these people think that only wearing black all the time makes you look goth but the truth is the exact contrary. The color black is in fact the color of darkness, of mistery and of the unknown, of fear but you should also consider wearing colors like PURPLE , RED, BLUE, GREEN and even PINK. I've seen goths saying the stupid stereotype that goths hate pink and light blue. Absurd. The point is not what color you wear but HOW you wear it. Let's make a clear example with the color pink. Look at these pics:


Non-goth


Goth



See?? Now..come and tell me the second pic isn't goth because she wears pink!! xD


STOP STEREOTYPING! :)

Cybergoths

"What is Cybergoth?" you may ask. Cybergoth is the one of the most common forms of goth around. Their style is heavily influenced by Rivethead, Steampunk, and Raver style. You can easily identify them by bondage gear, platform boots, glossy clothing, synthetic dreads, goggles, and the enormous amount of neon colors they wear. As far as the music goes, Cybergoths would usually tend to listen to EBM, Electro, Industrial, Techno, Trance, and Synth-pop. Cybergoths are usually found at the nightlife scene (bars,clubs, lounges, etc.) or around the internet, and can be very social. Chances are you might've already met them ^_^
