whoever wrote this fuckin line is retarded and deserves to be shot for the ignorence. We're not goths we're people. the goths built the Notre Dame chathedral in france, dumbasses. Labels are for jars not people! I am one of those people in lafa and in the hack circle and im not a goth. i listen to more punk and classic rock than metal and i look good in black teeshirts and hoodies and fyi i wear jeans. stupid pricks.

You're quite wrong, the Goths did not build the Notre Dame Cathedral. The man most credited with the cathedral's construction was Maurice de Sully, who was the Bishop of Paris from 1160 until his death in 1196. Notre Dame Cathedral is considered one of the most important examples of Gothic architecture. "Gothic architecture has nothing to do with the historical Goths. It was a pejorative term that came to be used as early as the 1530s to describe culture that was considered rude and barbaric." (www.wikipedia.org) "I listen to more punk and classic rock than metal and I look good in black teeshirts and hoodies and fyi i wear jeans." Really, who gives a rat's ass about the music you listen to or how you cloth yourself? One more thing, if you're not a Goth, then why did you get so offended?

you do realize that like...people have been playing hacky sack at BLA alot longer than you've been there? did you ever stop to think that perhaps the people there before you were indeed "goths" and didn't mind that label? like maybe that line was written by someone who attended BLA when you were yet to even take the test to get in?

Do Goths even really listen to metal? Most metal heads I know are not goths, and by at least insinuating that thats what goths are like you're doing as much labelling as the person that wrote that line.

Not saying any of this to be a bitch, but you seem to have taken that line far too seriously. chill, and don't let such silly things as misunderstandings get you quite so worked up

thats not true. when i was a sixie, there were a bunch of kids, who have all graduated from latin academy, if not college already, who always played hackey sack at the bus stop, and then would continue there games in front of the copley library...and some of them, actually were "goths" b/c that kind of thing was still in, in the late '90s.

yup thats what I was talking about. I think there was a slight lull somewhere in there, especially when the class of 03 left. But hacky sack has always been a part of BLA life. and thats when the people that currently play hacky sack started doing so. still the first group to be enterprising enough to start a club or whatever out of it though I suppose. Although I really don't know about earlier people playing

I was class of 05(how dare you say we were the worst class... show me the evidence EVIDENCE!!!)
some of these things made me laugh, but some of them have to go.
1. I was in the class of 05
2. I was vice pres of the band thus going to concerts
3. Mr Allen was the worst teacher in the school and there were many petition to have him fired.
4. I took german..go salter
5. Howard is a yankee fan, he is a republic from virginia. but i do not fear him. I am a master... i got an A in his class... muahahahaha
6. you left out mr. moy and how if you try to have a conversation with him he slowly moves closer and closer making it extreamly akward, especially if you are sitting down.

silly facts from my strange days at BLA to prove the list
I have been in the court yard once, for the sole purpose of retrieving a shoe that was kicked out a window.
Mr seddon(7th grade history and home room) was the coolest teacher in the school.
Mr. Sullivans final, i sat in the back of the room with my notebook flat out on my desk and he never noticed...such blatent cheating.
I convinced Mr. Van to sign me out of all my studies for band, but wound up in the library or art room for most of that time.
HAHA i never had a rotating schedule.
Guargna and Dicky(who i have managed to run into in downtown crossing) are the people most people want to pull pranks on, only the only person I ever managed to prank were Allen Moy and Fingerman

I could on but i think i am boring you
