Minions of Misery

After my mini-rant last week regarding a certain pukishly cute blogger award (yes, that is a word), the lovely Anne Michaud suggested that we should come up with a more "Angie friendly" one. So with the help of Tammy, the super idea master, Ren, the name giver, and the amazingly talented image creator, Imran, we present you with:

The Minions of Misery Award.

So this is how it works…I’m going to share one dark book, one dark movie and one dark secret…and then I’m going to tag other goth-worthy folk to continue the fun!

Without further ado:

One Deliciously Dark Book: The Book of the Damned by D.A. Fowler: This book scared the crap out of me when I was a teenager. It’s classified as horror and is very dark and very disturbing…it’s also hard to find because it’s been out of print for a while. This is a book about a book that curses the people who read it…ingenious really…at one point I actually tossed the book across the room because I was so freaked out that I was going to start hallucinating like the characters in the novel.

One Devilishly Dark Movie: Donnie Darko – I guess I could have gone with some horror flick or something gothic and animated but I love this movie. It has disturbingly dark themes that incorporates fantasy and sci-fi in a very cool way. Plus that freakin’ guy in the bunny costume is creepy as hell.

One Sinful Little Secret: I’ve got a big tattoo of Jack Skellington on my thigh…and if you don’t know who that is, well, you’re just not goth enough I guess.

So, on to spreading the goth love around...I nominate:

Tammy Crosby- who, although is not a goth, is an honorary one and she'd back me up in a bar fight (see link above)

Darke Conteur - a fantastically cool lady

Krista Walsh - A cute little goth girl who has a "thing" for ravens.


  1. Heh, this should be interesting. :D

  2. "pukishly cute" - LMAO

    Minions are good, but I don't think of you as a minion.

  3. Ang you're simply Gothtastic. I thank you for this honorary award and it looks stunning on your blogsite! I'd hug you but perhaps a simple cool goth stare is more in order. *hugs anyways* :)

  4. Dark genius, indeed. Great concept for an award. Love it.

  5. Lol I love it! Great choices too, although I haven't read The Book of the Damned but it definitely sounds interesting!

  6. Wow, delightfully dark. Thanks Angie.

  7. I like it - it's very cool, sinister, morbid and not entirely cute at all. Great concept and love the artwork.

    I see it spreading across the underbelly of the web, and growing in its darkest recesses.

  8. LOL! Love it! Great concept and Wonderful teamwork!

  9. I have received your Award as one of the "Minions of Misery" (Presented to me by Voodoo-Ghoul")
