I'm an Eldergoth who has haunted the fringes of the local "scene" for decades. My views on Goth culture closely follow the Romantic movement, the 19th. century artistic, literary, and philosophical reaction to the Industrial Age.
We seem to have a good core group and I think anyone else willing to come out for the next meetup will be pleasantly surprised. There was not an ounce of attitude to be found, and we had a lot more to talk about than just music, clothes and makeup. Not that those are bad things, mind you...
