Gothic, as refers to the musical style and culture, has its roots in the punk scene of the late 70's/early 80's in both the UK and in America. The latter saw the rise of West Coast "death rock" acts such as 45 Grave and Christian Death, fronted by the late Rozz Williams and largely considered to be one of the founding fathers of the Gothic movement, along with UK bands such as the Sisters of Mercy and Bauhaus. The mid-80's saw the Second Wave of Goth, led by acts such as Rosetta Stone in an electronic direction, Fields of the Nephilim and Nosferatu in a more organic, but almost theatrically morbid direction, and bands like the Mission (later the Mission UK) in an organic, but less spooky direction, often penning lyrics about lost love or transcendence of spirit. From the early 90's onward the Gothic music has taken on so many different forms that the sound of the music is as diverse as the people who listen to it.
Theatricality was always a big part of the Gothic movement, giving rise to the dark colors and ornate trim which evolved into Gothic fashion as we know it today. Many people dress in elaborate outfits and use lace, velvet and other classical materials, and employ corsets and old-fashioned items like that.
Boots are often very popular with both sexes.
The clubs are a big part of the Gothic scene, providing an opportunity for like-minded souls to network among people they might never meet in "real" life, as well as providing a venue for local and big-name bands to perform in an intimate setting for their fans.
The setting usually is pretty intimate, being usually very dim with occasional accent lights thrown on for effect, often with fireplaces, candelabra, or smoke machines. often there will be a cage for a leather-clad fetish girl to entertain onlookers.
The Gothic scene shares its borders with those of the Industrial scene, in terms of adherents, fashions and venues, and there is often some degree of overlap. This is commonly referred to by the generic tag, the "dark underground."
Gothic music and scene lifestyle can be campy and immerse itself in the trappings of vampires, B-movies and candlelight, can be sensual and beautiful in a classical sense, or can simply be an opportunity to rock out and dance.

2.
Hooking up with somebody you normally consider "just a friend" and wouldn't ordinarily hook up with. The very idea weirds you out. Once the alcohol wears off or the crisis that brought you together like this passes, however, the friendship is probably in for a little weirdness.

Coined in 2007 by yours truly.
Girl 1: "I was at this party last night, and Mike tried to kiss me! I was all like, no, that would be friendcest. I didn't want things to be all weird between us."
Girl 2: "Ew! I had friendcest with Bill once. His ex-girlfriend found out and got so mad! But she's the one who dumped him anyway, so she needs to stfu."

emo
The other 1200 definitions explain the term itself and its origins better than I can here, but it is important to note that the music and accompanying culture currently labeled "emo" by the press and popular media (as well as by the kids themselves) is essentially the same music and culture we all would have simply referred to as "alternative" a decade ago, and which has been shoveled into the media-created pigeonhole formerly occupied by the (arguably artificial) subgenre of "alternative" music known as "grunge" back in the '90s.
My sister's boyfriend swears he's too emo to watch MTV, but I know he got his Vans at the mall.

The other listed definition is correct, but I happen to know of one that does exist and definitely works. It's just that profile trackers are supposedly against the MySpaz Terms of Service, something to do with how you're not supposed to be able to secretly view other people's IP address without their knowledge. Violating the TOS could get your laboriously pimped profile page deleted.
Used in a sentence: "That stalker used his MySpace Tracker to get my IP address. He found it with his Myspace Tracker and matched it to my home address. So now my computer has a virus and I have a disease. I put a Myspace Tracker in my profile now too."

I'm only putting this part in so you know I am not bullshitting you, but for the record I get nothing out of this. No profit motive here. That said...
Unless they have changed it, the profile tracker that actually works can be found at www.hitslink.com
The rest, and all the ones you hear about in the Bulletins on Myspaz, will give you Computer Herpes and shit like that.

Wrong: I'm feeling so emo because my girlfriend left me. I think I'll cut myself.
Right: I wanted to go in the pit at the show but the last band was emo and some chick started kissing me.
