Designing and manufacturing beautiful goth-victorian invitations, with the side-effect that the filigree coffin doors can scale up to actual-door size!
A new bar opened in downtown Portland. Raven’s Manor is a haunted mansion themed cocktail lounge that Christine and I were dying to check out.
Here are two “Portland excels at…” links I have run across in the past week. I lurk on the Portland Industrial Gothic (PIG) mailing list. Actually, “lurk” is an understatement. I subscribe, the messages come into my inbox, and the vast majority of them get moved, unread, to an archive folder. One subject line recently … Continue reading Portland’s Robotic Goths
GOTH Bus. The photo is a little blurry, but every time I see “60TH” on the bus marquee, I see it as “GOTH.” Fake Bologna.

This just came in from the PIG (Portland Industrial Gothic) mailing list I’m on… In case you’ve ever wondered what some of the terms and phrases on Club fliers really mean… “All ages” = as if telling someone’s age in zombie inspired make up and near dark conditions weren’t difficult enough already “All night long” … Continue reading Decoding Club Fliers
Friday! This was the night of the East:Meets:West show at Outlaws. I had never been to the venue before, but have to admit it was great for this kind of show. It is the second and third stories of what used to be a dance hall back in the day. I guess most nights of … Continue reading Weekend Review
