No I'm sorry, but I dont think so there are so many "bad" things said about Poe since he wrote in a morbid context. I've heard many myths thhat arent true about this great poet.

I THINK MARILYN MANSON ROX!!!i liked all his old stuff like portrait,antichrist and that inbetween album that now i have no respect for...he just remixxed all his old shit and ripped off 2 songs from other artist,and then he had tony wiggins do that white trash song so basically every thing on that album is uninspired and unimaginative,however antichrist superstar more than made up for that ,oh,and his version of sweet dreams made it was thhe only reason i bought that,onto antichrist superstar..that cd was the shit!!!i liked every song and wondered what the hell went wrong with his previus onto his next cd..mechanical animals,that cd sucked..3 songs were cool but it was neither scary nor did it rock i liked coma white and a couple of lyrics from some of the songs...but thats all i don't buy manson cds anymore...i like ole'school manson only...cuz over all he is only good for burn on cds....

don't get me wrong i do love manson..but whyyy?????what is his deal? why couldn't he stay cool?it seems like he's only cool sometimes... my theory is this:he's cool every other cd and in between the cool ones he makes 3 ultra cool songs to make up for 6 or so ultra shitty ones,now manson is acting more femanine hes become less offensive,embedded less pedophillia undertones..actually none..he just isn't cutting it enough..he doesn't make me want to blow up my school or mutilate dogs or worship satan..he just doesn't do it for me anymore...his new shit at least...i still like his old stuff tho,i'm not completely dissin him..but for christsakes he wore a titty suit,,,or did he get tits?well,speaking of tits...i like kittie...what have you all to say of them???

Has anyone here been aware of what is going on with the Supreme Court and the 700 Club. The 700 Club is trying to make practice of witchcraft illegal and punishable by old standards. I will say no more until I receive a responce to this posting.

I don't have an answer but another question. In pegan ceremonies a circle is often rumoured to be used. The circle is normally formed on the ground with different kinds of earth material (rocks, leaves, etc.). Does anyone know that this circle is called?

Poe was walking on the dark side to help with writing and sucess. And he prbably did dabble in black helps and Marlyin Manson will find the groove that he needs to sucess. He is grat and as he gets older he will be greater if he don't try to hard.Meditation to the darkside is a help i know because I do write.Hang in there Marlyin it will come.

No, sorry, Poe was just an average guy writing for magazines...You're thinking of Aleister Crowley.
