    "I'm not just making fun of him for being fat, I'm also making fun of him for going down an obvious self-destructive hole that will probably lead to an early death. But I do nice things, so I'm not being an asshole here."

    *someone I once respected and admired more than anybody in the world who's become a petty asshole who's going down an obvious self-destructive hole

    And now every time I click on this thread I prepare myself for some new embarrassment. Spitting on a painting a fan did of him. Getting into a fistfight at Denny's. The Zombie feud. The constant "illness" show cancellations. A story about him falling asleep drunk in a hallway and needing to be woke up to go perform....of course, the ludicrous display I personally witnessed when he opened for Slipknot.

    I bought tix for the Megadeth/Ozzy show before the Ozzman had to postpone. I am now at a point in my life where I am avoiding seeing Marilyn Manson live but it's happening anyway, and that is beyond fucked to me. Maybe I'll show up late on purpose.

    I hope he gets help. I really do. if Al Jourgensen can turn his life around, anyone can. I'm not optimistic though, and I wish he'd prove me wrong.
    Just going to re-post this so I'm not framed as wanting him to die as seems to be the case currently.

    And by the by

    This is the same person who regularly called John 5 a "fucking faggot" and who harbored a rapist in his band for years until public disclosure forced him to kick him out. And yes, I have a very hard time believing he didn't know what with how close he and Twiggy were/are.

    So before you call me an awful human being, remember that I used the word shamefully to describe said recollection, and above all, remember who we're discussing. I'm not perfect and it's hard to keep the vitriol in check when it comes to this guy.

    And for what it's worth, I've battled body image issues my whole life. It's also easier to let that kind of language fly when you see yourself reflected in it.

    So can we try to avoid derailing this thread for the umpteenth time, knock off both the fat jokes and policing thereof, and finally, finally get back on topic? Thx.

    I thought we were just having some light fun with some, admittedly rubbish, puns (i do love a good pun train) wasn't my intention to fat sham anyone.

    How is it always this thread that derails so easily?!

    The older I've gotten, the more I'm drawn to Manson's more mellow tracks. (Still just talking ACSS through GAOG.) The hooks/melodies on a lot of the tracks are simple yet really memorable. He and whoever was part of the writing during these periods don't get enough credit as songwriters.

It's sad cuz I see kids born in 1996 arguing on Facebook posts now about how he's never done a bad show, just defending their precious darklord until they are blue in the face. Trying to justify his antics.

    The vancouver show here with zombie, was one of his worst shows ever, and a local radio station mentioned manson was joining ozzy now for the summer tour, and the comments section went apeshit about how much manson sucks now (you know it's bad when Facebook comments are starting to notice how bad the shows got) and there was this one 23 year old girl just getting so upset over everyone saying his performances suck now saying they've seen 10 shows and he's never done a bad show... man.. Must be nice to be young and naive again. Kids these days have no idea what they missed being born in the late 90s/early 00s.
    I don't think I've ever seen any Marilyn Manson fans born after 1995 in real life. The youngest Marilyn Manson fans I've seen were born at least around 1992 to 1994. I've also noticed that any fans born in the late 1990s and early 2000s on the Internet also seem to sometimes talk more about Eat Me, Drink Me and everything afterwards a bit more, but I suppose that also depends on their preferences.

    As of now though, it also seems like most people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s are into EDM and K-pop. I hardly see people born in those generations being into any type of rock these days, but I'm only still referring to what I've been noticing in real life. And not to knock on those genres either, but I don't often see people born after 1995 and 2000 being into most or even any of what ETS listens to.

    At this point I'd feel lucky and somehow thankful to find Marilyn Manson (And Nine Inch Nails. I just felt like throwing that out there too, since this ETS after all.) fans born after 1995 or even 2000.

    I think there's easily fans born after 2000 that would get into NIN, but maybe more in the way that I got into my father's music as a teenager.
    As for Marilyn Manson? In my opinion, the quality and depth of work doesn't compare to NIN. Especially when the post-2000 born fans see MM's current performances, it isn't exactly inspiring for them to say, 'damn, I want to look at all of the albums now.'

    Nope. Literally just the same stuff that's been readily available for years online (I think Scott released them if I recall correctly).

    So that cover of The End has vanished. Maybe it was put up too early? Was supposed to be attached to the upcoming adaptation of The Stand in some capacity.
