What you see here are the first 5 copies of ”SOME WEAR LEATHER, SOME WEAR LACE”, with a 22cm/22cm size and a thickness of about 2,5cm. The cover is a paperback and inside there are thick ‘drawing’ type of pages with a lot of photos of 1980s goths/postpunks/wavers. The main text tells us about the story of ‘goth’ from the beginning till its ‘death’ in the late 1980s. Including interviews, thoughts and memories of original goths and bands such as Clan of Xymox (NL), Kirlian Camera (IT), Opéra de Nuit (FR), F.O System (HU), Pin Ups (FIN) &  Alien Sex Fiend (UK)

This was my Great Uncle’s house, built in 1905. I recently went to look at it as I learned that it is for sale. Payments would be comparable or less to what I pay rent right now. Definitely my dream home, being family helps as well. Unfortunately it is an hour and a half drive (in good traffic and weather) away which would give me a 3 hour round trip drive to work everyday. I could live with that to call a place like that home, though the wear and tear on my cars would not like it. It is in the middle of nowhere so getting a job out there to make anywhere near what I make now is probably out of the question. The house does not have any insulation or a working bathroom. It probably needs $100-200K in repairs and restoration which would be steep. I’m probably just dreaming but still hoping to consider it. Oh yeah, did I mention it is supposed to be haunted?
