  1. A Reviewer's Rant (or Check Your Facts Before You Mock)


    I usually steer clear of the discussion boards, as I A.) seem to be a human lightning rod for flame wars, and B.) have a weakness for getting sucked into the most uncivil exchanges. However, a current thread (certainly not the first, nor the most mean-spirited,) bemoaning the apparent elitism and bias toward obscure niche scents at Basenotes caught my attention. I was particularly struck with one sarcastic remark made in the context of innocent teens receiving recommendations for astronomically

    I have to be very clear here. I wanted to love this fragrance. I still think the scent is good. The problem on my skin is this fragrance is a skin scent basically throughout the entire dry down.

  5. Marilyn Manson Louisville Palace

    Ah, sweet memories. The crowd for Marilyn was quite a bit younger that the one for Adam Ant, and a lot more naked. Shirts were unusual--for example, missing the front six inches but still connected with chains. Mid boob on display.
