Day 13, Letter M
[Tuesday April 15th 2014]
My favorite musician is Marilyn Manson- born Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969. I was born on the SAME day as him just 14 years later.
He is probably one of the most misunderstood people on the face of the earth. I actually have a lot of respect for Marilyn as a performer, musician and artist. I have been fortunate enough to meet him twice. I have seen him live over a dozen times and plan to see every tour possible.
His lyrics and his music captivate me, he’s misrepresented a lot in the media because of his fashion and the way he looks but he actually stands for a lot of good things and has been through a lot in life. Manson may look different, he chooses to look different and not conform to the normal standing of society, why should he have to look “normal”? Everyone shouldn’t look, dress and act the same just to make others happy and I have great respect for him because of this. Manson encourages free thought and individuality to be yourself and not just what everyone else wants you to be. If you want to wear make up grow your hair long wear black or whatever color you want, what gives anyone else the right to tell you not to!
Manson is known to stand up for kids who are different, people judge those who are different, they claim Marilyn Manson is violent, yet these people actually are the ones that show violence towards people like him, he is a good man, when he sings about violence, if you actually listen- you will know that he is quite against it. Manson speaks about how we should strive for personal strength rather than expecting a deity to do something for us , and that we should not thank a deity for our achievements but should realize our own hard work, I agree with his thoughts in SO many ways, probably why I am one of his biggest fans!
I think it’s easy to throw my face on the TV, because in the end, I’m a poster boy for fear. Because I represent what everyone is afraid of, because I do and say what I want. ~Marilyn Manson
Not only is Manson is an amazing entertainer and a very intelligent and respectful man, his band has released some of the best records of our time, this band pours their hearts into the music. I love the controversy and his ‘SHOCK ROCK’ take on rock music, it is what has made him who he is: HATED yet, Oh-So-LOVED!
Subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days–one day for each letter of the alphabet. Start beginning Tuesday April First 2014 with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day on http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com
