Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Well maybe she's just batshit crazy.

    Speaking of which, I'm re-installing VTMB. I think this game may actually have more play-throughs from me than Deus Ex.

    So this girl I've started dating wants me to come to an "alternative goth club with attached bondage room" on Thursday.

    I'm not really sure if I want to go. Goth clubs aren't really my scene, and while I'm into bondage I'm afraid the people at the club will be more hardcore than I am.

    On the other hand, hot girl wants me to go to bondage room.

    In old country, we have saying. That saying is, "Sdelaite ego, trus."

    This roughly translates to, "DO IT FAGGOT."

    I don't act like my usual confident self and she stops dating me?

    There aren't many situations that make me uncomfortable, but going into a goth club without being familiar with goth culture is one of them. In social situations like that, I tend to shut down and become kind of timid.

    On the other hand, not going could accomplish the same thing, so...

    Unless we're talking about actual ethnic goths, it totally is. Who is and who is not a goth is determined by who does and does not call themselves "goth".

    Isn't this true for any social group that isn't a club or something? I mean, it's not like punks pay membership dues or anything.

    Right, except at a goth club, there are going to be a lot of people who call themselves goths that do the same thing. Piercings, tattoos, not just black clothes but a specific style of clothing, makeup; these are all things that goths have/wear that I don't. There's definitely a sense of "who's more hardcore", even if it's not vocalized. That's the issue; I'm far from hardcore gothwise. I'll be a little more comfortable in the bondage room, though, so who knows.

    I just told her I'd come, so we'll see what it's like.
