The baby bats of the '80s and '90s are the elder goths of today, and we have the responsibility to treat the new kids on the scene like we weren't.
I think I was more goth-adjacent/wannabe. One of many iterations of young Ainnir. 🙃

I never managed the full goth getup as a teenager (there was no money for clothes and no time or logistics leeway for clubbing), so I immersed myself in the books, movies and music (the latter, a lot more once the internet was a thing). As an adult, I've been metalgothing over four decades :cool: People like Angela make me really nostalgic.

I saw a timelapse of this project on FB, so of course I had to rush to the channel itself to watch the less-sped-up version.

Her voice (Ellie Roswell) is incredible. One of the top female vocalists in modern music. She fits in nicely with the likes of: Kate Bush, Sinead O'Conner, Annie Lennox, Deborah Harry (Blondie), Pink, Adele, Kim Wilde, Allison Monyet, Fiona Apple, Enya...

Hmm, odd presentation; I also listened to the second part so this comment applies to both. It was something I would expect from a convert (or convert-centric) presentation, albeit much more polished theologically (it was maybe 70–80% correct—which makes the other 20–30% all the more dangerous). And it had serious issues, particularly after the first hour or so. Everything from the deprecation of certain modes of thinking (logic, law, etc) to the elevation of secondary (and problematic) traditions as examples of real phronema (like 1 liturgy served everywhere, 1 "monasticism", etc) to improper charismatic tendencies *in opposition to* ordained clergy (starting at 38:00 in the 2nd video: "a phronema that is rule-based...we have to try to avoid that...[do it] however the spirit moves you!") to the misuse of confession for getting a presbyter's *opinion* instead of a blessed sacrament. And, no, phronema does not necessarily come with more attendance in the temple: I know plenty of people who fall into guruism and all sorts of other grave errors that bring them *further* from orthodox teaching than before they were Eastern Orthodox! Overall, the series is heavily about the new (falsely-called) "medicinal" and "pastoral" language—which is *not* orthodox Christianity, as it's presented—and if this sounds like more than a (craftily-done and hand-wavy) second-hand retelling of Eastern Orthodoxy to any person, then I would be concerned for that person if they believed they were past the "convert stage" (which, granted, can last years).

Here and now (well...sometimes...)

Wow. I think we might have watched different videos. But I haven't seen the 2nd part yet. I won't get into a debate about it but I will just say that the only "deprecation of....logic, law, etc." that I noticed were in relation to their over-usage in Western theology, as in the "legalism" for which the Roman church is so notorious. I seriously doubt that she was deprecating logic, law, etc., per se. She is, after all, not only a professor of theology, but also a practicing lawyer, or so I understand.

I was, to be honest, rather impressed by the first video and am looking forward to viewing the second. But then, I'm an under-educated plebe :).
