Fascination

Last night, I read Patrice's (KATG gossip goddess) Hell and Heartaches blog about the upcoming The Runaways movie.

The Runaways is about an all-girls' rock band from the 70s. Joan Jett and Lita Ford being the two big rock chicks that were in the band.

Oh yeah. And I heard about the movie from CJ, who told me Kristen Stewart is in it. She hates her. All that Twilight-Edward-now-Jacob-envy.

Anyways...the point of this is that, in Patrice's blog, she mentions that the director of the movie is the director of many fine music videos; one being The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson.

Well, not only do I love that song, but Manson is one of my all-time favorite bands. I also love this album, which has been on my to-do list to blog about and one of my all-time favorite albums. I wanted *this* album (titled Antichrist Superstar for the non-Manson's) to be played while in labor with *both* my children. During my pregnancies, I played the shit out of both although I chose not to play it during my labor, out of respect to the fine medical personnel who would not appreciate hearing
The beautiful people, the beautiful people
It's all relative to the size of your steeple
You can't see the forest for the trees
You can't smell your own shit on your knees

There's no time to discriminate,
Hate every motherfucker
That's in your way
So I watched The Beautiful People again last night. And it is an amazing, albeit disturbing, video. Mi-Mi was watching over my shoulder and at every instance that my heart stopped, her eyes got wide. She told me several times that it was scary.

At the 5th or 6th time of telling me "This is too scary", I told her "Well, stop watching it." To which she replied, "But it's fascinating."
