Feedback from the Spin issue from March 2003

Eagerly awaiting the opening of the sisters of mercy-land

  • I want to compliment you on the goths in Disneyland article ("something wicked this way comes"). Given the media's tendency to portray goths as either stupid or evil, it was a pleasant surprise to read a piece by a writer who understands the subculture enough to capture Bats Day accurately. As someone who is friends with the coordinator of Bats Day and has attended the event since it began, I can say that your objective, educated, and witty coverage pleased us all.

Thanks for continuing to perpetuate stereotypes and spread misinformation about goths. And for the last time: Marilyn Manson is not Goth. ~ Rae Licari Bellevue, Nebraska

  • I loved "something wicked this way comes". I myself am not goth but sympathize with a subculture that doesn't relate to the masses. (I have a grateful dead past) Writer Chuck Klosterman rocks! Thanks for a great read.
