He likes drinking, owns 300 CDs, prefers Burger King over MacDonalds and says "heavy metal rules".
and thought it was an article about me.
it made me laugh. i kinda thought i shouldn't have laughed.
i sometimes wear black.
i've spent far too much time listening to bright eyes and elliott smith as my last.fm will attest.
the war on emo would really intensify...
He is weird. And Danzig sucks.
...and even though by some strange quirk of laundry, I'm actually wearing all black right now. But he's still weird.
danzig does not suck, purely because of how good Mother is.
Come on. Everyone knows that should be read as the "heavy metal fingers". Hyperbole alert.
I like how he says he hates "all government on earth", yet is happy to choose between mcdonalds and burger king.
I heard on the news somebody describing him as a "scary guy wearing a long black trenchcoat. He had a retarded hair cut."
'Fan Of OZZY OSBOURNE, MARILYN MANSON, IRON MAIDEN, DANZIG, METALLICA (But Only The "Old Stuff")'
well obviously. sounds like a reasonable bloke.
At this point I have to say, I'd give anything to be a fly on Marilyn Manson's wall right now.
Partly to perv on his wife, but also to see his face when he hears one of his fans has shot up another school.
I mean, it falls into every stereotype of the 'Trenchcoat Mafia'. Though I guess no one would be able to set it up after the fact?
if the same thing happened and it was a Paolo Nutini fan who perpetrated it, would anyone consider it significant?
Realistically anyone who starts shooting people is likely to be somewhat disenfranchised from society and the bands listed maybe target peopel who are a little disenfranchised. So it's not too surprising that someone like Marilyn Manson comes up whenever something like this happens. But it's ridiclulous to imply that the music (rather than the disenfranchisement) is the problem.
Obviously all the bands listed have a large number of fans. I imagine a number of those aren't particularly nice people but similarly some will no doubt be doing some form of good to wider society. So it does seem a bit of unfair scape-goating.
Doing it himself and listening to the bands because of wanting to ?
Chiken/egg etc etc
