Anonymous asked: Not sure if you are still around, but was wondering if you could interpret Putting Holes in Happiness. There's metaphors everywhere and it's hard to crack
I am still here, I just don’t usually log in to this blog daily.
And yesss, I’d love to do that! Just give me a few days and what not to get everything finished and I’m sure I’ll make a post. :)
I was trying to fix my hair and I don’t know
I am really craving a pizza right now. Am I popular enough for people to buy me pizza?
Happy 45th Birthday, Marilyn Manson
A man whom I’ve looked up to for years, this is me commemorating your existence on this earth. You have inspired millions of individuals across the globe and I have yet to be in the same room with you.
I hope that 2014 brings about a new year of creativity for you and that happiness is always in your front pocket, or at the very least, at the tip of your lipstick.
Whatever you may have done to celebrate your 45th, I hope you had a hell of a time. I want you to know that you matter to so many people and that another year with us has truly been a blessing.
We love you. I love you. Happy birthday.
astonishingpanoramaoftheendtimes asked: Favorite Era and why? What do you expect artistically, and musically from MM's next era? Did you enjoy the last 3 eras (EMDM, THEOL, & BV) again artistically and musically?
Such tough questions!
I think my favorite era would have to be Mechanical Animals. I relate so much to that album and I have connected to it in so many ways. I can listen to each and every song and feel something.
As for expectations, I want something more.. I don’t know something with more substance. I want more allusions, I want more roughness around the edges, I want more passion, I want an album that really says “fuck you” to everybody. I want the music to be a bit more upbeat, sort of similar to how Antichrist Superstar and Holy Wood were. I want something that gets me really pumped and excited.
On the overall, I kinda enjoyed the past three albums but not nearly as much as his previous work. I think they lacked a lot of things, and the music was “meh” in comparison to his older work. Artistically, I think that BV was the best out of all three. I think he put the most effort into that one above the other two. Musically, I think that EMDM was really good, although the context of the music really just, falls short of what I know he is capable of.
Anonymous asked: What does triptych mean ? Sorry if this sounds stupid
It doesn’t sound stupid at all, don’t worry!
The dictionary definition is of three photos in separate frames but connected by a hinge. However, when referring to Manson’s work, it’s the set of the albums Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holy Wood. There are three albums but they all flow together and share a story. If you’re interested in how that story is developed, just browse through the tags on the page, or go to theholybibleofmanson.tumblr.com/tagged/triptych
