I'm Goth since the ending of 2009 (between september, october or november I'm not really sure actually) I really love Goth Music but I also enjoy Metal.
I describe myself as a very shy, serious, thoughtful and open-minded person, while I listen to something I draw, but only as a simple hobbie. I've been writting a kind of story about my drawings, everything about a group of friends in a place where everyone is part of an alternative lifestyle, (in case you're wondering, yes, the Goth Subculture.) I'm still working on it, once done, I'll start drawing everything as a sort of comic.

I'm also a music collector, my favourite format is CD, but every once in a while I buy vinyls and cassettes. The first album in my collection was a christmas present from cousin and it was Sehnsucht by Lacrimosa, since then, I've been buying music.

In the spiritual and philosophical matter, I'm agnostic, and sometimes I tend to be nihilist, but not in a negative way, despite not finding a certain sense in life, I'm very positive and happy with it. I can't consider myself as a misanthrope in the whole meaning of the word, but there's a number of people I hate to deal with, like: racists, homophobes, fanatics, superficial, greedy and arrogant assholes.

Favourite quotes:

"The scariest monsters are the ones that lurk within our souls..."
- Edgar Allan Poe

"If you can't fly, then run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward."
- Martin Luther King Jr.

"People don't want to hear the truth, because they don't want their illusions destroyed."
- Friedrich Nietzsche

"Fuck God and fuck the devil and fuck the church too. I'm responsible for my actions.
I don't need to hide behind nothing. The devil didn't make me do it, I did it... whatever I did."
- Lemmy Kilmister

"No new horror can be more terrible than the daily torture of the commonplace."
- H.P. Lovecraft

"I hate the human race. Of course, therefore, I hate myself the most because I am the least of the human race."
- Peter Steele

"I could never understand ethnic or national pride.
Because to me pride should be reserved for something you achieve or attain on your own, not something that happens by accident of birth. Being Irish isn't a skill, it's a fuckin' genetic accident.
You wouldn't say "I'm proud to be 5'11". I'm proud to have predisposition for colon cancer." So why the fuck would you be proud to be Irish, or proud to be Italian, or American or anything?."
- George Carlin

"I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring."
- David Bowie

"People should not be afraid of their government, government should be afraid of their people."
- V

"Music for me is like breathing, I don't get tired of breathing, I don't get tired of music."
- Ray Charles
