This is the official LJ Community for Lathe of Heaven Radio, an online radio station that has consistently been in the top 20 Goth stations on Live365 since it's inception. evilcupcakes, your hostess and programmer, has been operating Lathe of Heaven Radio since October 2000. She spent many years in LA immersed in the Goth scene and now lives in Seattle. Her interests include reading, web design, the paranormal, the occult, bellydancing, comparative religion, anthropology, and wildlife.
I encourage anyone who is a fan of the station to feel free to join and comment here. I am open to discussion of any topics that are appropriate to the listeners of this station, however the usual rules of no trolling, flaming, or porn apply.
I am going to loosen my policy on 'no community promos', however I am going to ask that any community you are promoting here have something to do with this community, meaning:
Any of the bands or genres of music played on LOHR Mature 'Goth' lifestyle, not woe-is-me poetry by 14 year olds and musings on nail polish Communities about books, films, or television programs with similar aesthetic to LOHR
Absolutely NO "hot or not" communities. That shit is tired.
Any community promos I don't think are in accordance with these rules will be deleted, so if you have any questions about these rules and want to promote a community, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
