Bigger on the inside.

This, this is art and sharing and why I <3 her work so much and respect her as a person as well as an artist. This had me sobbing quietly and willing myself to stay to the end and listen, rather then fleeing to cry where no one could see me. As I did, those people around me who I am blessed to call my friends, gently touched me to let me know they were there, but not in a way which would make me falter.

When she was done I fled to the ladies and sobbed my guts out for 5 mins and then went back to sing and laugh and dance. The last two weeks for me have been wonderful, I have been happy, I have been content in my own skin, no panic attacks, I have been feeling in charge of me and my life. Twice I have felt awful, that flash which reminds me that I had not been that way for a long, long time.

I was enjoying myself on Thursday with abandon, no cloud to struggle against, no dampers on me mentally, emotionally, spiritually and then this was played.

I am bigger on the inside, other people see it, I haven't been able to.
But I know so many wonderful people, I got and gave amazing hugs to 50 people on Thursday alone.
The last two weeks have been so healing for me.
I am blessed and I know that I am bigger on the inside.

Are We On Social Network xyz? – Dominion

What can happen when you don’t sign up on a socail networking site for your group/club/event.

Are We On Social Network xyz? – Dominion.

Are We On Social Network Du Jour

One question we are being increasingly asked by people is:
I sent you X amount of messages on FaceBook/MySpace/Bebo/Friendster etc. and you haven’t responded.
our reply of course is:
Dominion doesn’t have a FaceBook/MySpace/Bebo/Friendster, if you found one it isn’t us!

We are not into the idea of only members of a certain social networking site/service being able to contact us, or members of a particular service getting a different (either better or worse) service from us than non-members, (like for example only xxx service users seeing feedback posted to us on that service), we like equality (whether the information or service is good/bad is less important than open and available to everyone).

Fans/friends/well-wishers have mistakenly decided to set these up (Dominion Profiles/Groups/Networks) on our behalf, and usually eventually get bored stop maintaining or forget the password for them, and most importantly dont send us the messages, give us the accounts, or shut them down when we ask them to. Currently we know of several on each service, some very popular, and some with 0 friends, but we ask you to please de-friend (so as not to mis-lead others to them).

Feel free to politely ask them to close/delete whatever (they are probably un-maintained so there is little point), do not abuse/insult or negatively message the owners/operators, they probably thought any advertising is good but stale/misleading info is worse than none (as we have seen with our own recent outage).

For example, one particular site that seems to have gained a large following is the Facebook group Dominion Dublin – this is not, repeat NOT, run by us (the people who run the actual club), and indeed has very little to do with the club other than the name – please de-friend it, or at least don’t expect it to have any official information about the club… for example, some people might have missed it when we had DJ Jeyenne from XPQ-21 playing in Dominion a while back, as the Dominion Dublin Facebook site was actually advertising something completely different at the time. 0_o

This website is the only official source of information about forthcoming events, playlists, DJs etc – if this situation changes it will be announced here first.

Obviously, some of the people involved in the club also have their own personal Facebook/LiveJournal/MySpace etc pages – these are sometimes used to pass on information about upcoming events etc., and can be useful for those who forget/don’t have time to check this site regularly, but shouldn’t be taken as gospel – as always, check the information against this site if there’s any confusion or ambiguity.

At the same time we heartily encourage people to post links to our events and news on their own Facebook/LiveJournal/MySpace (we have even added buttons to make this easier to the site) as this way if/when the information changes the link published will continue to point at the correct information, as opposed to cutting/pasting the information from our page, and thus your readers not recieving updates.

Also, feel free to pass this page on to your friends also (using our handy new shiny social network buttons).

For those people who don’t have time to check the website itself every week, or forget to, or whatever, we also have a public RSS feed (provided by LiveJournal*) however it does allow feedbackcommenting by anyone, whether you have a LiveJournal account or not – please feel free to comment or ask questions there too, all feedback is appreciated.
Facebook users can as always “friend” the RSS via:
profile> settings> Imported Stories> Blog/Rss> add (enter dominion.gothic.ie into the field provided)

We are also now providing an announcement-only mailing-list for those not able to subscribe via RSS (experimentation still ongoing so expect some duplicates/).

Thanks to all the people, past, present and future, who support Dominion and help us remain Ireland’s longest-running weekly Goth/EBM/Industrial club – keep it up, and keep visiting http://dominion.gothic.ie/

Dominion is the only weekly nightclub in the whole island of Ireland devoted to gothic, industrial, EBM and associated alternative music. Launched in July 1999 and has kept going changing venues over the years,  it currently resides in The Cellar in Murrays Bar (formerly Frazers), 33-34 O’Connell Street, Dublin 1 , running on Saturdays from 9:30pm to 2:30am.

Tori time.

Some days need a little bit of Tori time in them to lift the spirits and make you think.

Her music has always drawn me in but it is the lyrics and layered meanings which keep me coming back, it’s musical poetry, it’s a story, it’s conveying complex emotions. I never got ‘pop’ music which didn’t do that growing up, I wasn’t a brosette or or a boy band fan.
Music which has meaning and makes you think was and still is what I like and many of the
bands I listened to while my peers were drooling over the twins and the other one,
like the sugar cubes, the cure, the smiths, the stunning I still dip in and out of.

Tori came a bit later and it was not under the pink which really hooked me but boys for pélé with it’s richness of sounds and range of instruments.

Some of the tracks were recorded here in a church in Delgany.

I do believe that certain types of music will change the way I am thinking and can be good for focusing the brain, the same way Mozart is said to have that effect on kids
certain types of music can move you through your day and help your brain switch track,
and some days need to have some Tori time in them.

Sex with ducks

Riki “Garfunkel” Lindhome and Kate “Oates” Micucci sing a pro-gay marriage song in response to a Pat Robertson quote that legalizing gay marriage would lead to legalizing sex with ducks.
