    Now that is something I would never believe was happening. Shocking really!

    Black Rose Ceremony would be an excellent name for an girl alt rock group.

      Watching this, another alt rock band name came to mind: the Dry Heaves.

      An old grave site that never has any mourners is a sad thing, but surely faux mourners are worse. I’m not even sure this is reenacting — ritualized performance art, maybe? Lost Cause victimology taken to its logical end?

      We’re all Confederate widows, now.
