I’m not even going to bother with a title…

Posted on 20 Mar 2014 under Journal/Life Updates

Does anyone else think Marilyn Manson is quite a bit like Nine Inch Nails. Granted I’ve only heard a couple of albums of either band, I think there seem to be a lot of similarities. I know didley-squat about genres, so I won’t even attempt to go there. But they sound quite similar to me. It’s nice. I like them both.

But there’s a muted respect for Marilyn Manson. I think the music is fine, it’s pretty good, but it’s not earth-shatteringly different. What are they doing so different that some other hasn’t (or hadn’t at the time) done? Maybe part of the appeal was the goth make-up, the targeting of outcasts and people who consider themselves to not belong. And without the image, the music is a little less special, perhaps?


You. Yes, you. Stop it.

I’m probably going to read this post months/years later and have absolutely no clue to whom that line was intended or what it means. Ah, well.
