What a dream night, I wish I could have been invisible to crash the party. The store had a pink vibe as Stella had given the place a ’70s concert hall treatment, with psychedelic posters, and flashing neon lights
I was lucky, beside Ringo Starr’s 75th birthday (above) I have attended a lot of concerts and events.
Manson sees ‘The Pale Emperor’ as his big come back, probably because ‘Born Villain’, which was released in 2012, was not received very well by the critics? Plus, ‘The Pale Emperor’ was not a commissioned work, there was no label attached to it at first, both men felt totally free, and the absence of pressure helped the creation process.
People have gone overboard with song interpretations and I will start with the worst example of all, Charles Manson. The infamous rockstar wannabe was convinced that the Beatles’ White Album was as prophetic as the Bible, he would often quote ‘The Beatles and the Bible’ and considered the fab four as the ‘four angels’ as in Revelation 9
Shaw read a few excerpt of his book, spoken word style, accompanied by some music by Gregg Foreman of Cat Power, and Brandon Burkart of The Saint James Society. The funny thing is that he was reading most of it from his phone (he wrote his whole book on his phone as he is allergic to computers)
That whole idea [actors making music] for me is a sickening thing, it’s always just made me sick’… Err, hello Johnny, aren’t you constantly making or playing music with all your musician best friends? Friends like Marilyn Manson, Patti Smith, Ryan Adams, and so many others?
‘If I was literally responsible for something I would take credit or accept the responsibility, if I did a crime I would take the punishment, but I’m not going to accept any blame for things that I make
Spoiled for choice this first week (but third week) of 2015. I’ve heard Sleater Kinney (A-), Belle And Sebastian (B) and Viet Cong (A-) and a handful of tracks off fall Out Boy (B) and three of Marilyn Manson wand while I am not COMPLETELY convinced of Manson, it could be Lupe, very close, but I am going with Marilyn as most anticipated of the week.
I was so surprised to see that 71-year-old Joni Mitchell becoming the new face for Yves Saint Laurent. The 70’s folk legend was photographed by Hedi Slimane for the designer’s ongoing music project, which has previously featured Ariel Pink, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon and Marilyn Manson
the animation is totally not working for me: it’s not even scary or confusing enough or perverse as a Manson video should be! This CGI tube swallowing a woman as an anaconda or a slinky toy would do, may be his new idea of sexual threat
‘Although I still respect her, I’m friends with her. I just left, I was tired, I was not willing to make that part of the video. Eli and I originally had intentions of making a video with her, but that is not the intention that is represented in that film clip because that is not what I filmed, not for my video.’
I should say first that Manson’s representative, Kathryn Frazier of Biz3, has declared that the Goth singer has nothing to do with the video and that ‘It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else’s Lana Del Rey footage’
Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge – Marilyn Manson – Gosh, have I grown accustomed to his voice? This is a terrific brood metal track with a funny smart lyric and groaning moaning no atoning words. What’s not to like? B+
Well ya know.. nothing worse than an aging goth. The pale pallor coupled with the jowls let alone the shaved off brows- its a recipe for ewww and Manson is smack dab in the middle of it.
Did I mention that with the exemption of the circe-y flying stunts bits, the entire thing is a disaster? The music on the top of the list will turn you deaf; in a career of terrible songwriting, Bono and the Edge reach the bottom of the barrel on this atrocious piece of music.
