Re: Marilyn Manson

I can't stand his lame poser music, but he's actually a pretty intelligent guy if you hear him speak in interviews. I just don't like how he tries SO hard to be edgy and weird.

So I voted Other.

Re: Marilyn Manson

I wouldn't say he's a freak or weird. His image is just his way of expressing individuality which few people can vouch for. He's extremely bright and clearly talented and even though his music in general doesn't interest me, the guy has my respect!

You heard the latest?

He's probably starring in a tv movie version of Rocky Horror - seriously.

Smart, talented man making crap music. I just found out that he's a big fan of Pink Floyd.

I still don't like him.

Re: Marilyn Manson

Well, I voted "other", but I totally despise his music. (but the soundtrack for "Resident Evil" was cool, though. Instrumental only.)

Anyway, he's smart as hell. Why? Well, he was just an average Joe, working as a music reporter. Being in the medium, he just had to find what people were craving, and give it to them. And he did!

Come on! Who actually believes he's anything like that in his own private life?

Sounds a bit like his new song..."mObscene" (which is totally crap, I might add).

Re: Marilyn Manson

He's had 5 (maybe 6) songs that I consider "good" to "great". Personally, I don't care about his image as long as one at least song of his in every 5 or so interests me.

He's an ok guy, by me. I'm not sure of his intelligence, as I've never seen/read any interviews with him.

Re: Marilyn Manson

He is rather strange looking, you must admit, but that's no bother on me.

I have to say though, as weird as it is, I found something 'sexy/intriguing' about him in his video 'tainted love'.
Good version of this hit too.

Now that bothers me...

Re: Marilyn Manson

He has a great message. Frankly, I don't care that he has makeup. I'm not a homophobe, and I don't think it's incredibly wierd. So why do I say he has a great message? From Fight Song:
"I'm not a slave to a god that doesn't exist. I'm not a slave to a world that doesn't give a ****."
These lines are brilliant and I quote them all of the time. My freinds all hate him and think he's a freak because he wears makeup. Then again, my friends were raised to believe that appearance is the most important quality in a person. Whatever. I just like some of his songs and lyrics. I think it's stupid to say he's a freak because of what he wears. I don't worship him, either. Can't the poll have an option more in the middle? The choices seem kind of extreme....

Re: Marilyn Manson

I voted other. I don't care much for his image, or often for his message. He does have a couple of good songs, but I can't stand his singing. Too bad "The Dope Show" wasn't sung by someone else.
