04:34 pm - whitby november 2011 writeup
Think this Whitby trip may have been the best one yet!

Graham and I travelled up in Emma's car with her and Chris on Thursday - was a tight squeeze with the 4 of us plus lots of luggage, but we managed it. Arrived at our cottage at about 5pm or so, so had plenty of time to relax before the evening ahead. The cottage we stayed at (http://www.bellislandcottages.co.uk/bell_island_cottage_8.html) was gorgeous and situated conveniently near the town centre and Abbey steps. As it'd been a long journey we just decided to go to a few pubs in the town before heading back to the cottage.

Friday was a getting Spa passes day for Graham and I, meeting up with various friends and wandering round all the merchandise and clothing shops and stalls. I don't think I ever tire of trawling the quaint Whitby shops and also their charity stores as well! Then back to the cottage to get ready for the evening for the Spa to watch the bands: (Berlin Black, Cryogenica, Devilish Presley, Mist of Avalon and Abney Park). Berlin Black had a couple of songs I'd not heard before which I really liked and their performance was a strong one. Wasn't quite as keen on Cryogenica - they were ok but just very forgettable for me. Devilish Presley were great as ever - but wished their set could have been longer! Mist of Avalon I missed some of their set, but what I did see was good, with some great songs, however did not see Abney Park this time as had seen them previously at Whitby and by this time a group of us were ready to head off to club Darklands at the Resolution where the DJs played some great tunes which kept me on the dancefloor a lot. Shame the club wasn't very full but I think perhaps a lot of people went home after the bands, as it was quite late by then.

Saturday daytime was a bit of a write-off due to the lateness of the previous evening but Graham and I did wander round the town again then go for food at the Staircase restaurant which I like to go to at least once every Whitby trip as their food is delicious and of excellent quality, especially the veggie shepherd's pie, veggie bake and sauted potatoes :) Was very much looking forward to the evening ahead as my favourite band ever The Chameleons (lead vocalist Mark Burgess and original drummer John Lever have reformed as ChameleonsVox) were playing. First of all though we were treated to some quality performances by The Death Notes, The Dark Shadows (really liked them!) and Rhombus (with added bonuses of Anne-Marie Hurst and the beautiful girls that were the Rhombettes putting in an appearance). Didn't manage to catch much of Voltaire's act though due to my feet in new high-heeled boots killing me and needing to sit down for a while! However, ChameleonsVox were simply amazing though perhaps I am slightly biased! I was curious as to what their set would be like and I was a little surprised (pleasantly) by some of the choices. I was so pleased they played 'Caution' and 'Soul in Isolation' both 2 favourites of mine and just such beautiffully haunting and melancholic songs which always make me feel quite emotional! It took me a little while to come back down to earth after their performance. Finished the night at the Res before returning to the cottage for much-needed sleep.

Sunday - Graham and I went for a walk along the beach in the afternoon as it was another long lie-in after a late night. I do love the beach at Whitby - yard upon yard of pure sand, unlike my local beach at Southsea! I can usually find a few interesting pebbles and shells to add to my collection as well. :) I was a bit nervous for DJing at that evening's Nostalgia with Martin Oldgoth and Dave Exile though still very much looking forward to it. It turned to be a brilliant night - packed club with lot of old and new faces, friends and people up for having a great time and keeping the dancefloor (mainly!) filled. Think by Sunday evening tiredness had caught up with me and I did not feel I was on top form with the DJing tonight, but hope it wasn't too bad! Still had a great time and most importantly, so did most people there I think! I always feel very honoured and happy to part of the Nostalgia team as it is such an incredible night :)

Monday, I felt much better (though Graham didn't ;p) and the long walk we'd intended to do today from Whitby Abbey to Robin Hood's Bay did actually happen! Been meaning to do this walk for ages, but hadn't managed to fit it into the itinery until now. It was really nice to walk along those clifftops, taking in the amazing scenery along the way, feeling the fresh breeze and sea air on my face and getting 'away from it all' for a few hours. Robin Hood's Bay village was lovely too, when we got there. Very quaint with an olde Worlde feel about it. We definitely neeed a good meal and sit down after the walk so had dinner at the Victoria Hotel there :) As it was dark by this time and would have taken us ages to walk back we got the bus back into Whitby and then rested for a bit at the cottage before getting ready for the final night at Recollection , the alternative 80s night where Patricia, Ben and Disco Dolly were Djing. By Monday, many had already gone home but there was still a good turnout for Recollection, and I managed to dance a lot (wearing more comfortable shoes this time!) as some top tunes were played by all the DJs.

Tuesday came far too quickly and it was regrettably time to pack up and head home. Slept away much of the car journey, and when I got home it was a case of spending quality time with the cats (not so chuffed to find a dead mouse on top of the stairs and a freezer badly needing defrosting however though!)

So Adios Whitby until next time! Big thanks to Martin and Brigitte for all your hard work in helping to create another brilliant WGW and also for your company. Also thanks for having me DJ again! And thanks to Graham and my friends who helped make it a WGW to remember for all the right reasons! :)

11:57 pm - Thoughts..
In those rare, snatched moments one has to oneself, I consider how thoughts are like butterflies, flitting from bush to tree, like bees from flower to flower. Or perhaps like a spaghetti junction of criss-crossed, intertwining railway lines. A thought that starts off on one path and like a pebble hurtling down a hill, gathering both momentum and dust and other particles along the way, travels in a non-linear, zig-zagging direction until the destination is light-years away from its beginning...

04:33 pm - Wave-Gothik-Treffen Leipzig 2011 long post alert!
Another WGT Leipzig been and gone: this year it seemed to pass by within an inkling. My 8th year in a row going - that makes me feel old! Graham and I arrived very late on Thursday due to missed train connection between Berlin (having flown from London Gatwick to Berlin Schonefeld airport) and Leipzig. Luckily we were still able to check in to the hotel ok, even though we were nearly an hour late. A very nice 'Leipzig lokalen' helped us when we had to redirect another route to Leipzig Hauptbahnhof, he was really sweet and even called the hotel for us on his mobile as mine and Graham's were not working! Exhausted, we arrived at the hotel and flopped into bed almost straightaway!

After a reasonable night's 'schlafen' we got up after a bit of a lie-in to get our wristbands in exchange for our tickets at the station then on a tram to the Agra to have a wander round, checking out the usual array of fabulously-attired people, look out for any of our friends and try not to spend too much money at the indoor market! Was actually very good and only bought a new studded chain belt for 5 Euros and a waspie reduced from 59 Euros to 23 Euros - bargain! Spotted Postie Chris wandering round the market 'doing the Ana Varney' again and looking brilliant :)The weather was beautiful again; (have been very fortunate most years with the weather; it has usually been warm and dry. After a couple of hours, Graham and I headed back to our hotel room for a bit, then got ready for the evening ahead firstly at the Felsenkeller to watch Merciful Nuns and The March Violets (they were fantastic!) and then the Gothic Pogo Party for afters. Good to catch up with Yvette and Jason, Brigitte & Martin, Mikael, Sarah Soden, Scary Lady Sarah & William Faith, Polina, and Mirielle and Marrtin who we'd met for the first time last Whitby. Batluder (Rasmus Berlin) was DJing at the Pogo Party so that was good, and managed to dance a fair bit until about 5am when we decided to call it a night.

Saturday, we did not manage to get up until late afternoon and went straight out to the Werk II to watch the bands - Squishy Squid, House of Dolls (missed The Cemetary Girlz who were on first - grrr!)Castrati (really liked them, reminded me a little of early Cinema Strange), Last Days of Jesus (they were excellent as usual, really lively performances), Cinema Strange (who had Monica Richards and Frank Vollman aka Frank the Baptist up on stage with them)and lastly the Damned, very old favourites of mine and Graham's. Really enjoyed them as always and the Captain was on form too. Spotted Alan there, (good to see him again as don't always see him at WGT)Yvette & Jason again, Sarah Soden, Matt the mo, Ed, Martin & Brigitte etc.After the Damned it was into the Werk II Halle D for the When We Were Young Party which is probably my favourite ever goth night. I have almost lost count of how many amazing times I've had there over the years. The music is so good, it's so easy to stay until the sun rises! Tonight was no exception, as Martin Oldgoth was DJing for the first time there, alongside DJ Bigo and the lovely DJ Yggdrasil (Alcino who runs the Graveyard Sessions in Lisbon, Portugal where I was fortunate enough to guest DJ 3 years ago)Some great tunes were played by all DJs and Graham & I also caught up with our friends Nadia, Chris, Consuelo, Madlyn, Brigitte and Rickbats which was also really nice :)
Left at the very end (gone 7am I think), and got the tram back to the station with some of the others.

Sunday was spent mostly in bed until Graham and I got up to go to the Agra to see Killing Joke (unfortunately missed Nosferatu and seeing Katy and Louis. However, we also managed to fit in going to the Mediaeval Village as it was such a sunny day. There's something very calming and 'getting down with nature' about being there. Chilled out on the grass there listening to the bands in the background and sampled a Kirschebier. Did not see many people we knew there despite the crowded environment but was good to run into Alex and his new girlfriend who seems lovely and catch up with them :) Had some yummy pasta in cheese sauce then watched Killing Joke, who were great as usual. Set off to the Centraltheatre (formerly the Schauspielhaus?) afterwards to try and catch Monica Richards/Infrawarrior in time but unfortunately Graham & I got on the wrong tram and ended up miles away from the venue! Viv and Nadia advised me her performance was incredible..thanks guys! ;p
Went to the Werk II eventually and sat in the little pub next to the venue for a while; it's nice in there; good food and beer and sitting down was needed! Had a drink and chat again with Alex and his girlfriend before heading into the Halle D for the When We Were Young Party again. As before, a fantastic night - danced a lot, chatted to various people including Madlyn again, Andy from Sheffield who I've not seen in ages, and Sarah (Soden).

However, think I really overdid it on the Sunday somehow, as unfortunately Monday the last day, I was too ill to move from the hotel room as was very sick and headachey, so ended up missing all the bands (ironically there 3 on at more or less the same time at different venues I'd wanted to see - Mediaeval Baebes, Mephisto Waltz and The Other)plus also missed attending the When We Were Young Party where Graham & I were going to be meeting up with Simon and Viv and looking forward to seeing William Faith & Scary Lady Sarah spinning the tunes. Was a little gutted about that, but still had 3 brilliant days and nights out so can't complain too much. Yesterday's travelling back was hard work as was so tired from lack of sleep and feeling so ill. Got back late last night and spending today mainly in bed, unpacking, and uploading photos from the festival!
