Thank you. I wasn't sure how to say this...even with the pre-millenial notoriety of Marilyn Manson, I had this growing opinion that Twiggy had generally come out of all the bullshit okay. Not so much, it would appear.

I know, right? I'm okay with some ridiculousness right about now.

It's weird how the false rape accusation premise gets so much airtime, when it only seems to make sense in a vacuum.

Exactly. As soon as I read the article title I was like, 'of COURSE that happened' but it would've been nice if that wasn't the case. Either way I'm glad to see the continuing fallout on these entrenched abusers taking place.

Every time I read about how supposedly awesome Rage Against the Machine were, all I can remember is the college meatheads who were into the aggression of the music and enjoyed beating the shit out of people to it, especially if they thought they had found a gay.

October 13, 2017 on Marilyn Manson Reschedules Tour, Details Onstage Accident
That honestly wasn't as bad as I feared it might be. If anything, it seemed like Manson was ready to go for at least another hour and figure out a way to turn it into crashing on Maron's couch.

I'm wondering how many of these tapes can be broken open to find a limited edition White Stripes micro SD card containing additional demo mixes.

I miss the time when Manson knew how to use makeup. And costumes. And set design. And included band members in his videos. And make things not so half-baked.

I've reached the point where I've come full circle and forgotten Bryan Adams existed, and thought that was a really, really weird picture of Ryan Adams.

Undignified appearance aside, I hope he's ok. For a guy who made his bones fucking himself up on stage, that looked pretty embarrassing.

There's something very meta about Manson blaming Columbine for his problems.

That's not a bad idea, really. Maybe in like 2030 they'll have mellowed just enough to share a balcony together.

It is my ongoing shame that over 90% of the time I still fail at telling which is which Gallagher brother.

September 20, 2017 on Marilyn Manson – “KILL4ME”
Based on absolutely no evidence, I'm guessing that 'The Idea of You' was the original pick. It's just a very well-crafted, strong song from the same period lacking almost all the things David Lynch apparently wanted to show up in TNIN's Roadhouse song.

September 18, 2017 on David Lynch Rejected A Nine Inch Nails Song For Not Being “Aggressive And Ugly” Enough For Twin Peaks
Pretty much. The last thing I liked was the Golden Age of Grotesque, which implied a sort of aristocratic opulent medicine show kind of vibe, which...felt right, to me, for a way for Manson to age gracefully. All this goofy shit with prop guns and neck paint is not what I want out of Manson. Wake me up when he releases a music video with other band members in it again.

I'm so looking forward to whatever he decides to release next.

Although I'm unable to sufficiently verbalize why, my heart is telling me that this is a wonderful thing.

As a former Manson aficionado, there's a spark of something here that's enjoyable. Must have been a decent little windfall in merch income for him.

I can't hear this til later but I look at that picture and see Manson is still aping Bowie whenever he can.

I can't help but feel disappointed by this, but then I remembered, hey, it's the Foo Fighters, and everything here made sense.

I'm not sure what this song quite needs...maybe it's just because it's live, but...something about the vitality of it feels under-inflated.

A little weirded out they dubbed over Bowie's lines with another actor. Not sure what that was about.

I get it, sorta. Shrink the image down to a postage stamp size and suddenly it's a perfect look for an icon in a Spotify grid.

Everyone's playing the game. Reznor seems to think that openly talking about playing the game somehow nullifies the fact that he is into it just like everyone else.
