Band eras and evolution

Albums, tours, symbolism, and over the top antics - all markers along the way to discovering the enigma that is Marilyn Manson. But will it all fit in?

Some people say that 'Smells Like Children' is 'not an era' but I think it is, a mini-era at least, so: Sticking tongue out smiley

In 2006, another era began but I've not added it yet! And what name to call it? Marilyn Manson Celebritarianism? Celebritarian Corporation?

I went for 'Eat Me Drink Me', the album name, or EMDM for short.

And one fine day ...

Well I THOUGHT I might display my 'To Provoke, To Inspire' pages (not yet online) where I try to summarize the attention-grabbing, thought-provoking and inspiring elements of Manson and the band.

Half of the pages were amongst the first ones I wrote for this site, but the other half? Well I kept on tinkering and never being satisfied, but what I collected is a good basis for further thought. In fact, there's enough work in it for another whole website

It's changed to more of a 'catalogue' of MM components rather than essays. I'd spell out my plans in detail but someone else might be inspired to do it better ;P

Worth reading? Well, like me, you'll just have to wait and see. Exasperating I know.
