Yip, that would explain it. :D . Most of the good clubs have closed down due to lack of interest/income.

The Doors is still open but it's moved to Edenvale and has been slowly declining towards nu-metalness (not that it was ever really a gothic club,but it had its nights) #( ,although recently there seems to be a resurgence in the sub-culture, possibly as a result of the whole trendy-goth thing, so alot of new clubs are popping up, w00t!

Deviant - rues the fact that he wasn't old/brave enough to go to the good clubs when they were open.

Hey! I live in Edenvale and Doors is like my second home. I was shocked (shocked I tell you!) to go through one night and find that some fruitcake had decided it was a good idea to host a Retro/Rock/Reggea night at the Doors. It's happened twice! Twice!

I'm almost too scared to go back. We'd like to phone ahead and make sure that we won't be there during the RRR nightmare but the club doesn't seem to be listed.

Don't get me wrong, they make up for it on other nights, but it was scary dude. Scary.

Was also there when the Awakening played last month. What a crock. Paid thirty bucks, no happy hour(s) and no good bands. They really have to jack their story up.

PLEASE TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love South Africa. It's the only country where you can shower off HIV/AIDS.

(If you're not South African, you probably won't get the joke)

I know it's lame to have to explain a joke, and takes away a lot of the humour, but not you're got me really curious.  What's the joke mean?

Jacob Zuma, who is supposed to be the next president of South Africa, was charged with rape and corruption. At his court case, he was asked why he had sex with an HIV-infected woman. He gave a shocking response and claimed that it was ok since he took a shower after to take out any risk of getting infected.

Edit: Might I add that South Africa has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world, so it's quite fucking ignorant for him to say that. You should also know that Zuma is a racist bastard.

Ah.  That's... wow.  :shock:
Is it sad that I'm comforted the US isn't the only country with morons for political leaders?

Haha have no shame. SA is much more worse off than the US. The SA government spends over millions of rand(SA currency) on name changes of streets/towns/cities instead of funding organizations that benefit the poor. I believe about 50% of the population is below the poverty line. That's just one example of how stupid our government is.
