Getting spun for Spin

Is Jonathan Ames following in Chuck Klosterman‘s Chuck All-Stars? The latest Spin magazine features a cover story by Ames on Marilyn Manson, the controversial Goth-rocker who appeared to be enamored with the New York-based humorist and writer.

Since the entire article isn’t online, here’s a handy guide to what we learned about Ames and Manson:

  • Manson has a live-in assistant/butler named Arvin.

  • Arvin keeps the absinthe flowing.
  • A German distillery is developing a Manson-branded absinthe: Mansinthe?
  • Manson’s mansion is as creepy and weird as you’d imagine.

  • Manson’s sexual fetish? Women’s stockings.

  • Ames and Fiona Apple are friends.
  • Manson is most creative between the hours of 3:00AM and 5:00AM. Just like vampires.
  • The Big Lebowski. Manson’s a huge fan.
  • Ames and Manson bond over hairbrushes placed in areas where the sun doesn’t shine (hint: not talking about Manson’s mansion).
  • Ames can be persuaded into doing anything. Specifically coke.
