Today's Evil Beet Gossip

This is probably the greatest website I’ve seen in awhile. It’s like mySpace for goths. My first instinct was to point and laugh, and I spent some time clicking through all the profiles getting a kick out of the heavy-duty angst. But after awhile I noticed something — there’s a sense of real camaraderie here, to an extent I’ve never seen matched by another networking site. It smacks you right in the face, perhaps because it’s so unexpected when juxtaposed with dark art and occult screen names. It’s obvious from the profiles that a lot of these kids (and some adults) are having a less-than-ideal time coping with life right now, but it’s cool that they have this forum to express themselves and rally around one another while they try to find their way. Score one for the Internet.
