My mighty gothic cheerleaders!

My friend Chris Christian pointed out that this week it’s been 20 years since we did this daytime sports goth event as part of the PDXINDGOTH bulletin board. Mike King made us SNEERLEADER t-shirts, the dudes played basketball, and I, despite having had my tonsils out the week before, led cheers like:

“DO it and DO it and DO IT FOR ROZZ”

and

“IT PUTS THE LOTION ON ITS SKIN OR ELSE IT GETS THE HOSE AGAIN.”

Anyway, sometimes a person just doesn’t ever change.

I was also really downing my post-surgical codeine syrup, which my doctor’s office was not happy about.

   How do you know comedian Virginia Jones?  You met her at karaoke, or at goth night, or at goth karaoke.  You know her as a female comedian.  Perhaps you went on a couple dates but you didn’t like dating someone smarter than you, or else she was too fat.  Maybe you used to be married to her, and you’ve been asked not to check her website anymore.  Possibly you feel like you know her because you’re also into goth stuff, music, funny essays , fashion, and comedy content.  Keep your eyes on www.badinia.com for articles on how to write a Tom Waits song, how to kiss girls and much, much more!
