Now I would never normally call myself a groupie or someone that would EVER be obsessed with a celebrity or musician. However on Friday night thoughts of knitting AND a super awesome singer came to an intersection in my life. How could this ever happen you must be asking yourself... It really all started out very innocently.(really it did!)
Down here in the deep deep south there isn't much of an alternative music scene, so pretty much you take what you can get. Growing up in Atlanta I was a devote punk rocker and have somehow lost my way during the last 10 years trying to find myself and trying to be something I'm not, like the doctor's wife and part of the work girlies. I was so unhappy... This is the main reason I started to knit but I knew that I had to find my way back to the days when I was comfortable with life.
Little by little I've found myself back into the Goth scene which to many it would seem quite strange but it is actually a pretty peaceful and romantic way to be.
I try to attend as many theme parties I can here in Savannah, always looking forward to the First Fetish Friday. Well last Friday has been one of my favorite entertainment night since I've been here... 6 LONG years. Goth singer Voltaire came down to play at our Black Oaks Asian Infusion Night. Not only did I get to dress up, I got to hear actual good music.
Here I am right before leaving the house for the night:
OK.... So here is where the obsessions collided. Voltaire is such a hot guy (yummy actually), wearing tight pants, a cool KNITTED sweater and being a really down to earth cool guy got me totally having a HUGE crush. So here it goes... the knitted sweater.... did I like the sweater more than him? ummmm
One min I was thinking... damn that boy is hot... and then the next I was like "I could make that sweater". How could this be? I was at a great show... hanging around Voltaire and thinking about knitting. My friend Missy suggested I knit sweaters for both of us and wear them next time he comes... oh what groupies we were. However, I did get out of there without humping his leg - can't say that much for Isis. I am happy to report that when I left I actually got a chance to hug him since my little group were about the only 5 people left at the club and he said I really smelled good... its Karma by Lush and I'M NEVER GOING TO CHANGE IT!!!! Here is a shout out to Lush.
Who knows which one I was more excited about, the sweater or the guy? I guess I will never know.
Here is one of his songs... his music is a little dark, a little gorey but always has some humor to it which is what made it totally awesome!
We laughed and we cried.... even one weird (preppy) drunk guy came up and said "I have been SAVED by Voltaire"... music wise I think is what he meant. ok well we didn't cry and yes I will stop typing now... here you are... VOLTAIRE
