: After I heard AntiChrist Superstar I got everything he ever put out shortly after that. So you more than likely would have gotten it in the future , think of it that way.
-Yeah, I know.
: Make sure you READ THE LYRICS deeply to Anti Christ its incredible.
: Did you read his book? " The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" ?
: That helps and explains alot of where he is coming from......
-No, I don't really get around to reading too much. I think I have some sort of disability or something, but nobody ever beleived me cause I got good grades and such. I would be interested in trying however.
-For me, as far as where I think he is coming from is best summed up in one lyric in "Get Your Gunn" where he says "The most, I, can learn... is, records that you burn". Or, basically, the "monster character" that he created as "Marilyn Manson" is based on what is supposed to be outlawed/shunned/stigmatized by society. Like THEY are doing his homework for him by perfectly outlining what he should NOT be, and therefore defining what he WILL be. I am not really familiar with him, but is this anywhere close?
