Goths and Vampire fans - you gotta watch South Park!
Gaya and Catw - this is for you. *G* Great episode on South Park this week where some of the kids start a Vampire club, where they all pretend to be vampires. Problem is, the goths are pissed off because the vampires are stealing their looks. Heck, the goths are even being mistaken for the "vampires"!

Funniest part? When the vampire club brings in a new member and, to undergo the transformation... they take him to Hot Topic and put together a suitable outfit for him. *L*!!! Love it.

(could somebody remind me how to do the html for lj-users? Thanks)

Hi Ros!
Sorry, I never came back to your last comment in my LJ. But I had so much to do before I could go on my vacation and now I'm back home and try to sort through 1000000 Pictures ;)))

I don't know about South Park in German TV - I have to ask one of my LJ friends ;))) but it sounds funny.

Btw: I had a great time in LA and in Santa Cruz/Monterey/Carmel. I will come back to California, I can't live without it ;)))

uuups - the HTML for LJ user:

[lj user="rosamundeb"] instead of [ ] use < > and of course the name you want.

(I don't know what they are called in English, sorry)

You know what... we don't know what they're called either! *L*! I swear, I've never heard somebody name them. Thank you! I kept putting a dash between lj and user; that's why it wouldn't work.

Hi! Was this the trip to LA again? I hope so. Oh - I see, it was - yay!!! So glad you had a great time.

South Park is a long-running cartoon about a bunch of kids in South Park, Colorado. They're kids... but they're also like little, smartass, cursing adults.

The character in this episode is a minor character, Butters, who is a nice little boy, but his parents are always grounding him for the least little thing (and although they look like nice normal people, they're a little bit psycho). Between his psycho parents who overreact to everything, and the boys at school, who look down on him because he's scared and worried about everything, the poor guy is always having problems and, basically, doesn't really know what to believe.

That should give you enough to make sense of the episode, since I assume you know who goths are (dress in black, listen to The Cure, etc.) and who people who like to dress like vampires are. Keep in mind, though - the kids here who like to dress like vampires are probably getting their viewpoint from those "Twilight" books I was telling you about.

Good news - you can watch this online!

Whee!! I must see this! Do they show reruns throughout the week of that? Or is it an old ep?

It's brand new, and last night was the first showing. I think you might be able to find another showing later this week. *G* Yes, you must see it!

I speak from experience when I say that goths are ALL about the fashion. I vaguely know what Hot Topic is, but it seems like the kind of place they'd go. Shopping for all blacks of course. The rest of the attire is bought at festivals and online webshops.

*giggle* Vampires.

*G* Hey, there, Niroc!

You inspired me to google Hot Topic, and guess what? The main page is all Twilight-inspired - *L*!

*G* Ignoring the other levels... I haven't been around much... maybe once a month. I'm trying to get back into it.
