My First Tattoo: Part 1.
So Manson was such an inspiration to me, and I am such a huge fan that I decided to make Cyaegha (same as Manson’s) my first tattoo. I plan on getting the other arm next. Unfortunately it wasnt completely filled in when I met him as I had hoped it to be, but he loved it anyway. He told me it was better than his! (Of course not). Anyway, when I showed it to him as he held my wrist and he smiled an ornery smile and asked me how fresh it was. I told him about a week, and then he SLAPPED IT and laughed that wonderful, deep laugh of his. What a great guy.
Marilyn Manson - King Kill 33
You never accepted or treated me fair
Blame me for what I believe and I wear
You never gave me a chance just to be me
This song was pretty much my theme song for my entire sophomore year in High School. I was in a private Christian school (like Manson) and when word had got out that I liked boys, shit hit the fan. I was so shocked by how some of the “Christian” youth had reacted. Some of the guys stopped talking to me cause I guess it was making them feel less “Masculine”. Some people came up to me and told me personally how they felt. I even had someone come up to me and tell me they couldn’t believe it and thought I was “nasty” which they later must have regretted because they did apologize. I just remember blasting this song on my iPod over and over again that year. Thank you Manson, for getting me through Hell.
Interviewer: I have a question about the end of the [Slo-Mo-Tion] video. How did you get up on that rooftop with that gun and that mask and not get shot by the LAPD?
Marilyn Manson: That is a damn good question. You’re the first one that’s asked me that except for the people that were there. I don’t know. Lucky I guess. That was a real assault rifle.
“They’re not just acoustic versions or demos or stuff like that,” Manson says. “They’re really good songs that were going to go on the album but I didn’t want the album to be too long. I knew there would be the opportunity to use them for something.”
