Wannabegoth.com - They don't claim to be *the* experts of goth, but at this new site they want to show that "goths" are human. "Goths and the gothic sub/culture do not condone violence. The terms 'goth' and 'gothic' are not equivalent to 'satanist' or 'satanistic'. Goth provides a darker and more in-depth way of looking at the world and embracing the darker sides of things. Goths laugh as hard as they cry and party as much as they pout- it's about a balancing of time between the experiencing of the extremes."

The Spook - Food, arts, literature, nature, wit. I just found this very cool free online magazine (June 2002). The current issue features(d) vampire authors. It looks completely professional and you can download it in one high res pdf file, and a some of the highights you can download on their own. I can't wait to go dive in and read this! I may print it out with my mega new printer. Looks like it was started July 2001. The issue I first saw featured garlic recipes from Anne Rice & other authors, an excerpt from Anne's upcoming book, and an interview with her by Konstantinos, and many vampy authors. There seems to be a lot of Anne Rice, Poppy Z. Brite & Chelsea Quinn Yarboro in many issues, but there are some non vampire things like Frida Kahlo, though I guess most is horror related. It's quality though, not every cheeseball vampire author there is, just top picks. (maybe this goes up in the vampires section.)

4-H - this is a nationwide youth organization that I was a big part of until I came of age and turned 19. I still help out every so often when I can. I was in the horse project area (Middlesex County, NJ), and I can truly say this had a large positive influence on me and my skills today. Here kids learn leadership, public speaking, and a lot about the specialty of their club, be it rockets, sewing, horses, baking, skateboarding, goats, computers, etc, and even may go on to state and national level competitions. If you have the time and an expertise, become a leader, even if you're not an expert, you can still help out doing tons of things, and they will take money donations as well as supplies (computers, horses, horse equipment, any equipment for meeting places or any project area). This is a place to learn to be the best you can. (Goddess that sounds corny.. But darn if it isn't true! Of course there's always backstabbing and plotting and scheming..
