Marilyn Manson has a track called Pretty As a ($) on his 2009 record The High End of Low and recalled in a later interview that the ($) stood for a swastika which he sings in the song as well, personally, I think its an amazing compliment and if anyone said that to me I'd be utterly flattered by that, but just asking your opinion.... :)

(below is the link for the interview where Manson explains the song)

    The word Swastika is a Sanskrit word. It is comprised of, su- meaning "good, well" and asti "to be." Suasti thus means "well-being."
    The suffix -ka either forms a diminutive or intensifies the verbal meaning and Swastika can be thus translated literally as "that which is associated with well-being,"
    So, I guess it's just how you take it.

    My cousin, who is Indian and born into a Hindu family is named Swastika (no association with any movement related to Hitler. He doesn't own the sole rights of it, you know?)

    not really considering what the sign represents. i wouldnt want to be associated with anything that has to do with the Hitler Nazi era (especially since Hitler and his loyal lackeys were racist bastards. i HATE racism with a PASSION because it is CRAP and utterly POINTLESS). im sure the person would mean well but still its not exactly my idea of a good compliment
  • XCloudPandaX 2012/06/11 16:54:03
    it...would confuse me SO much...

    If someone says that to you, they probably don't think highly of you....

    "You're as pretty as the genocide of millions based solely on their religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation!" Not exactly a compliment

    [...] do you know anything about him?
  • Somkey ... CircusF... 2012/06/11 07:40:31 (edited)
    Somkey the Hores
    Matter of fact, I DO. Do YOU? [...]

    All you have to do is LOOK at him (?) for starters.
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/11 07:46:12
    i read his biography the long hard road out of hell, countless interviews over the years, looked through many of his lyrics, i love his music and his meaning, [...]

    Old and SMART. I know things you haven't even imagined. Night little kid.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/11 17:39:58
    that's a bit of a biased statement dont you think? you should probably get to know him in person before you say such harsh things.
  • Somkey ... hannah 2012/06/11 21:10:56
    Somkey the Hores
    LOOK at him. He chose to be a freakazoid. He's is evil in make up.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/11 22:22:37
    he's a human though. it hurts people's feelings. there's a better way to put stuff. you're an adult so you of all people should know. its better to be nice and decent. :)
  • CircusF... hannah 2012/06/11 22:50:44
    r u taking to me or him?
  • hannah CircusF... 2012/06/12 00:37:34
    well i read your convo with him and i know he was being childish but im just trying to tell him to just word it better. if he doesnt like MM then he doesnt but he shouldnt be name-calling. just trying to keep the peace is all. i like MM though. he's cool. ;)

    I'll word it as I see it. Get lost.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/12 14:51:50
    attitude much? you say you're an adult but you would be more reasonable if you were 100% adult. its actually quite sad that i can be more civilized than you and im only 17. -sigh- but i guess thats just how it is in some cases. oh well
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/12 14:56:51
    attitude much? you say you're an adult but yet you have such a raunchy attitude. if you were 100% adult you would be more civilized and decent. its pitiful how me a seventeen year-old can be more civilized than you. quite sad indeed.

    tiny tears? now you're not making any sense.

    Somkey the Hores
    Oh, youth. It was a doll that leaked water out of its eyes. Google it. It's not that I'M not making sense, it's that YOU are ignorant.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/14 15:28:58
    now you really just sound mental. in your trying to best me with your pride youre just sounding more cracked in the head by the second. just read this post and tell me you dont sound like you have issues right now.

    Get lost. Why do you keep responding with witless babble? Isn't it time for recess?
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/15 07:53:41
    you get lost. Are you psycho?! She is making so much sense and you don't get it. She's way more mature than you'll ever be.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/15 17:29:22
    no its time for highschool graduation actually. and your right about one thing i AM responding only problem with your statement is im not responding WITH witless babble. im responding TO witless babble.

    Just a pair of brainless little moonbats. Products of the public school system.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/17 15:53:39
    righhhhht. and yet i somehow sound smarter than you right now. and im somehow not trying to throw my weight around like you are. hmmmm. yes i would call that verrry brainless. and yet im talking to someone who thinks soo highly of themselves yet they have not much to be proud of themselves over due to their crappy attitude. and IM brainless.

    Where do you GET this crap?
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/18 20:55:35
    i get from the truth...AND by seeing how you act.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/17 15:57:02
    you just cant take the truth so you call us brainless. well i guess you in all your small-minded glory have to call us brainless because of your insecurity in your own mind. well you certainly have a lot to be insecure about when it comes your mind because right now it needs a LOT of work. anyone can tell just by seeing how you talk on here.

    Quitcher whining.
  • hannah Somkey ... 2012/06/18 21:00:49
    i think the only one whining here is you. you COULD have been decent but NO. you decided to have a stupid attitude. well as long as you keep being ridiculous is as long as im going to point it out like it or loathe it.
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/17 17:39:31
    I'm at a private Christian school and look how I turned out :)

    Pride and rebellion are a dangerous mix.
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/18 04:10:01
    yes, and the product is you and i, and the difference between us is too many things to list
  • Somkey ... CircusF... 2012/06/18 09:40:28

    I have lived a long time and have learned many things, most by personal experience. You are still a school child, who doesn't know ANYTHING except what some moron Frankfurt School indoctrinated ( who doesn't even know it) useful idiot has told you.
    THEREIN lies the difference.
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/19 04:39:27
    And yet you don't know me at all and you make false accusations
  • Somkey ... CircusF... 2012/06/19 06:28:53
    Somkey the Hores
    I have your posts to guide me. And your profile.
  • CircusF... Somkey ... 2012/06/20 03:29:07
    Yet that's not even skin deep of who I am
