From the nicely sardonic lyrics of the song Antichrist Superstar, I chose the name, 'bitter things' to use as the site's email address - mainly because I used it as a screen-name on the official bbs too.

The lyrics are:

"the angel has spread its wings
the time has come for bitter things"

Here's an early handwritten version by Manson which shows the angel originally having a gender:

The angel has spread his wings the time has come for bitter things

He misses out the curl at the bottom of the letter 't'. I do that too but I can't remember what it's meant to signify - that you write in a hurry? Those lines are also in Cryptorchid, a definition of that word being:

An animal in which one or both testes have not descended from the abdominal cavity to the scrotum within a reasonable time.

For cryptorchid, read 'Crypt Orchid', makes it easier to remember. But why did he think of that word for the song title? There's always a reason but I've not figured this one out. Is it signifying something still to be revealed, as in a personal 'flowering'?
