They just played marilyn mansons video for the dope show on mtv. I remember that was the first I had ever heard of him. I was about 12. I wasnt put off (by the boobs and no genetalia, the lots and lots of sequins with high heeled, knee high boots, the asymmetrical contacts etc...), I wasnt intrigued, I think it's safe to say I was pretty much neutral. Which I think is kind of weird. I was in a very controlled environment until I was 10 (pohnpei didnt have much outside world contact...I was living off of about 5 tv channels and no radio except local music), and then I'm exposed to mm and I'm not surprised by it. Well, maybe I was intrigued, I know I watched the whole video with interest, but....Yeah...anyway....There's no point to this post. Disregard it.
Just for my own records, the first music video I ever saw was either tonight tonight by the smashing pumpkins, "crossroads" by i dont remember...or some busta rhymes one.
Isnt it weird how certain memories that have no significant importance seem to stick out in your mind for no apparant reason? I remember watching the making of britney spears's oops i did it again video (shut up) and my then-19 year old brother walking by, seeing that, and scoffing. That's all. It was 2 or 3 years ago, has no importance, but it's one of my most vivid memories.
