Surfing the net the other day I was surprised to see one of my photos being used without permission on the above site which was carrying ads for Bondage & Fetish DVDs, especially as the photo was of our own Fairlynch Museum.
I couldn't really see a connection, except that the page at http://darkwavedoom.com/budleigh-salterton-fairlynch-museum also had ads for a Gothic Beauty Magazine and Free UK Goth Dating, as well as mentioning another site called VampireFreaks.com
And then I wondered whether the Dark Wave Doom people had seen our town's museum as a suitable venue for Goth gatherings.
Fairlynch, with its "Gothic windows and thatch, typical of the 'cottage orné ' tradition" as described in East Devon District Council's excellent Budleigh Salterton Conservation Area Appraisal at http://www.eastdevon.gov.uk/plg-cons-bs.pdf
is of course one of our town's famous landmarks.
Budleigh Salterton of course is famous for its charming little Budstock Festival about which I wrote at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2009/08/afternoon-at-budstock-saturday-1-august.html
So a further thought has struck me: someone may have confused Bloodstock and Budstock, and the Goths may well be heading south from Derby thinking that Fairlynch is where it all happens in August. They will be disappointed.
