    Music fairly mediocre (although I did quite like Sweet Dreams and Mobscene-I always welcome his stuff while I'm drunk on the dancefloor of a crappy 'rock' night in a club), plus he seems rather gentle and thoughtful. I like the theatricality of his image and persona; I like performers that try and maintain their image on and off stage. It's big, it's brash, it's fake but it's entertainment. That's what showbox is all about, and he's showbiz.
    I know it's not original but if we hung around waiting for something completely original we'd be waiting for ever, and be missing out on a lot of fun in the meantime.Im a Dita fan too; she influences a fair few of my fashions and trailblazed for lily-white curvy brunettes gotta love her. Also I think Evan Rachel Wood is pretty and talented too; she's just finding her way though so don't think she can be blamed by the fact he was rather immature and ran off with her.
    As for the allegations about buying those odd things; (buying it with the band's money aside, and who's to say that wasn't something to do with the live shows and one of the other guys just got a bit pissy about it and saw dollar signs?) gotta say, we are free to buy whatever we want and thats a wonderful thing. I don't think there is anything the matter with buying ANYTHING you have an interest in, provided it doesn't hurt anyone. I always think if someone hacked in and looked into my Google history they would conclude I was a FA-REEEEEAK! and quite possibly dangerous.
    He's just a pop star, it's OK.

    There was a funny article in The Onion a few years ago. They had a fake article about how Marilyn Manson felt he wasn't offending people anymore. So, he went to a neighborhood and went door to door trying to get people to be upset and offended.
    None of the neighbor's were a bit phased and some thought he was just adorable. *lol*

    I LOVE that!!! I need to catch up on the Onion, I haven't been reading it as much since I've been unemployed, which may say something about why I'm unemployed. One year, on my birthday, they happened to do a future issue. It was awesome!

    I haven't read all the posts but as we used to say the mans a plastic goth. So plastic he has made in hong kong on his ass.

    He is not unique, conceptulist (sp) he is simply a copy cat and marketing the ass off the goth scence which doesn't really exist anymore. Just wanna bes trying to capture a movement from the late 70's-80's. And cashing in.

    This stuff was done orignally by the likes of Bowie, bauhause, siouxie etc etc. He's just a business man screwing money out of un orignal teenagers.

    The goth days are over rip.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion as to what sort of music to listen to. But, through the history of rock and roll...everyone has been influenced by someone. Marilyn Manson, to some, is an overrated musician who has stolen his style from Alice Cooper or David Bowie. I think he has been influenced by them, but I don't see where anyone would think that he totally ripped off their ideas. I wouldn't consider the music goth, I guess it's according to who you ask. I have seen many interviews with him, and have just purchased Long Hard Road Out of Hell, his autobiography. I find him an intelligent person, who performs what I would call Shock Rock. I am a huge fan of the music, and the side projects of some of the band members (ieJeordie White, aka Twiggy Ramirez) It's all depending on what you like, if you're going to dig MM. Personally, I think it beats the hell out of the teeny-bopper shit that's on the radio now. I will admit that Eat Me, Drink Me..sucked. But, I have followed the music since Portrait of An American Family.

    He went to Federal Court here a few years back (forgive me if I posted it already, lol) and at the time, one of my friends lived across the street from the Federal Court House downtown Saint Paul. I was visiting him and we were standing outside when out came old Brian....looking all normal and just like he was a regular guy.

    I've never been too impressed with his music, it's just not to my taste. He is very articulate in interviews and a helluva marketing man, though. If the music thing doesn't work out, he could always hook up with Amway.

    I'm sure you all remember all those old rumors that he was actually the guy who had played Paul on the Wonder Years?

    I like Manson. His autobiography was refreshingly odd. His music is a mix - metal, glam, gothic.
    He says 'up yours' to everyone being conservative! We need controversial people in entertainment

    Kind of a pale imitation of the real thing.

    Dita is so beautiful and Evan is a wannabe.

    As if he couldn't get any more physically unattractive, he now has that look that some guys that age get because they spent their twenties doing blow and drinking heavily and whatnot. He looks bloated and gross. My 33 year old self says, "For real? You bought THAT guy's albums?" to my 16 year old self.

    Woof. Well, I do like the Lady Gaga comparison. She's only two layers of eyeliner away from Manson in sex appeal.

    Hahaha! I don't know whether "strolling" would be the correct word, if the last couple of times I caught him live are anything to go by "staggering" might be nearer the mark... I think he's too up himself and smacked off his tits to even make an effort these days.

    This news is a couple weeks old now, but I was curious as to what everyone thought. I followed Twiggy/Jeordie on Twitter, because he posted a lot of Star Wars stuff and as a 17 year old with a bass guitar, he and Sean Yseult were my heroes. (It is ok to laugh. His songs were easy. Also, I was 17. Also, he played those big Thunderbird style basses I dig.) Removing him from the band, whether the accusations are true or not, was a sound business decision on Manson's part, because Marilyn Manson has become a brand as much as a band.

    If the allegations are true, then ewwww dude. If they are untrue, he's effectively been ruined. Thoughts?

    Manson knows whether or not the allegations are true. He and Jeordie have been friends for a loooooooooong time. From what I've read in Manson's autobiography, I totally believe they're true.

    They were quite...deviant...in Manson's autobiography. Consensual freaky-deeky-ness (that is not a word) is different from rape, though, no matter how distasteful I find said consensual acts. I don't know. My knee jerk reaction is that it is true, but I also don't believe he's the same person he was in, say, 1996. However, that is not and does not excuse prior abusive behavior.

    Karma has a way of catching up to people, sooner or later.
