I Don’t The Twits and the Twits Don’t Like Me

I’m pretty much done whining about the Twits. There’s only so much yelling you can do to the deaf. They’re obviously oblivious to their idiocy. I called one “an example of everything wrong with the Internet” and he said “thank you, that is a hell of a responsibility.”

Wait, what…that doesn’t even make any fucking sense! There’s no responsibility in being an example you idiot. You can be an example of why you shouldn’t smoke crack, that doesn’t carry any responsibility with it. Jesus Christ. I can’t debate/argue with that! I might as well retort with “Vanilla monkey sky flower!” It would make just as much sense, what’s the point. And complaining about attention whores is a futile endeavor since that’s what they want. It is sad that I haven’t become accustomed to the rampant vitriol and idiocy that dominates the Internet though.

Anyways, I promised two soundtracks tonight, but one of the albums sounds like shit and is going to take some time to clean up. So I grabbed something that is relevant to today’s events instead.

Marilyn Manson
The Horrible People
The Not-So-Beautiful People
Suicide Is Painless
These songs are doubly relevant considering my earlier post today was all about Trent Reznor and horrible people, an triply relevant since Manson has a new album out. “Beautiful People” was always my favorite Manson song, even though at the time I was not a big Manson fan. I thought his shtick was a bit too much and even as a teen I could see he was pandering to an audience. Looking back though I kind of miss the days when he was popular, at least he was trying to make people think, even if it was for bullshit reasons. I’d rather take a billion Marylin Manson’s than one Shinedown or Hinder or whatever the fuck is on radio right now. These mixes are from a 10” vinyl picture disc. I’m including his cover of “Suicide Is Painless” (which is from the Blair Witch 2 soundtrack) as a fucking hint for certain people out there.

The Thing Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
This was another one of my holy grail soundtracks that I’ve been looking for since as long as I’ve been collecting soundtracks. I got it for five bucks last week. Good deal considering the CD is worth twenty times that. As far as I know The Thing is the only Carpenter film that wasn’t scored by him. Instead he got the legendary Ennio Morricone, the composer of classics like The Good The Bad and the Ugly, The Untouchables and Mission to Mars (okay they aren’t all classics). This score is excellent, a great example of music’s ability to create tension, shock and manipulate your emotions. Be warned though, excessive listening may result in nightmares of Wilford Brimley trying to kill you.

    Spooky… I just re-watched The Thing and was thinking I'd like to get hold of the soundtrack. The next day I visited your blog and there it was!
