The Wunderkammer of the Mild Colonial Boy, Esq., a Reactionary Tory Gentleman, who armed only with a Steampowered Babbage Engine and Pure Intentions, wanders the Time Streams and Aetheric Plane gathering an Eccentric Hodgepodge of Curiousities, Frivolities, Whimsicalities and Nonsense.
Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
This video is created by Jillian Venters who owns an associated website called Gothic Charm School. This a great place to start for introductions into what is and is not “Goth”.
I really liked Jillian Venters firstly because I - LOVE - her clothing style. Then I developed a mild case of envy and wished that I had the courage to dress as she does. I’ve always celebrated the individuality and creativity in others, but never had enough self-esteem to carry it off myself. This is something I want to change.
I also liked the no-nonsense approach to discussing the subject of goth culture and social etiquette. I haven’t come across etiquette discussed from the unique perspective of a subculture before, so this is a really interesting concept.
So yes, I am impressed. Keep up the good work Lady of the Manners! :)
