“mOBSCENE”-Marylin Manson (video)
Marylin Manson is smarter then he is given credit for, with a history of glam and metal, a fuck you to censorship and a clever deeply personal need to offend all the small people- he is a freak, and his new video, with its lindy hoppers, pin ups splashing through martini glasses, goose stepping chorus girls under a crimson neon sign screaming obscene, shows how little that word means, it is a meta narrative mocking his own shock tactics. As well, his new gf, Delia Teese the burlesque performances artist, is useful for him, keeps his more baroque instincts in check.
