Oh, it was all going so well for Marilyn Manson - he'd found a corner of the world where the authorities were still prepared to play along with his publicity machine. There was Croatia, all up in arms and fuming about plans for Mazza to come and turn their kids into drug-addled satanists by wearing some ill-fitting pvc and eyeliner. Just like the old days, before even USA Today twigged that he was little more than an aging businessman peddling half-hearted goth to the suburbs.

Yeah, Anton's right, you know: he's just not got the skill to do that. Indeed, these days he's so going through the motions he'd have trouble turning the kids into purchasers of his last album in two hours.

Bobas does throw him a line of support, though:
