Marilyn Manson’s Blog

How a goth icon deals with insomnia

By Marilyn Manson

Bio & Blog

Counting sheep to try to fall asleep is so boring and middle-class. Who cares about some fat guy in the suburbs going 88, 89, 90, bah, bah?

When I can’t sleep, instead of counting, I wear sheep. I will admit, it doesn’t really help (and I can only get to 15 before it gets too heavy); in fact, I get even more excited. Just something about wearing dead flesh that I really like.

I’ve been up for 38 hours with my two little friends here, eating a lamb shank and watching Silence of the Lambs. Not trying to be cruel or ironic here, just got hungry and I really dig that movie—especially when that girl’s in that hole…which reminds me…

Ha, I’m just kidding kids! You guys really think I’m some sicko don’t you?

I wish that Marilyn Manson would stop reffereing to himself as goth. While he has stolen heavily from our culture, he is not and will never be accepted. In fact, most goths truely detest everything that Mr. Manson stands for. Personally, his marketing of hatred to children disgusts me. He is a talentless hack whom we only hope will fade away soon. It is people like him who give our culture a bad name, and we are tired of him claiming to be goth.
