Marilyn Manroe and SKOLD

Postby gib » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:19 am



Please everyone, have a listen to this song. It's called "Better the Devil" by Tim Skold (or SKOLD to his fans). In the beginning, there's an audio recording of a woman in an interview who says "Uh... do I seem happy in life?... uh... uuuh, let's see..." Then half way through the song, the same woman says: "...even if I feel like it or not, I'll try to make the effort to make contact with people around me..."

Turns out that woman was Marylin Manroe. Here's the interview:



Essentially, Manroe tells the interviewer that she isn't happy in life, that she's at her happiest when she's able to fulfill a scene, and that perhaps she gets enjoyment out of the pursuit of happiness. And that if she's generally anything, she's generally miserable.

In 1962, Marylin Manroe died from a barbiturate overdose at the age of 36.

Tim Skold used to be the bass player in Marylin Manson. <-- Guess where Marylin Manson got half his name from.

What are we to make out of all this?

“Everyone is always like ‘how do you feel about feminism? how do you feel about feminism?’ and it’s like maybe I don’t wanna fucking talk about feminism, maybe I just wanna be a female producer, because it’s like even being a female producer is so rare it drives people fucking crazy. It’s like my sheer existence is like a political act, I think, to a lot of people. It’s not to me.”
