Bugger me entire life is falling apart.
stab me please

"A" [23 Mar 2006|05:11pm]
These are the first three pages from "A" a graphic novela that I am working on.

Light pears through the blinds of a rather large sliding window on the east side of the room.
CAPTION: "They've put me away. Because I was slipping away."
CAPTION: "Discovered with my only escape. With the intention of creating a red ink caption."
AN EYE LID WIDENS. The shimmering green that dwells behind it is abrasively introduced to what is clearly the sun, going about its daily remission.
CAPTION: "To prop alongside my sanity. My damaged olive skin."
The glassy emerald wonder that burns in the fading light appears to be long to a young woman, no older than the age of 18. She quickly sits up, giving us a better look at her features. Curly dark hair provides the perfect framing for a portrait of staggeringly subtle allure. Her skin almost parallel to the complexion of an olive in this waning illumination. A bandage sits atop her brow.
A YOUNG GIRL, about the age of ten sits across from her. She greets her senior with a smile.
Hello. Who are you?
Beauty sits up in her bed, every bit as disoriented as a person in her condition should be.
I'm Inadia.
Inadia what?
Just Inadia. I don't have any other names.
(looks around)
What is this place?
Hi Inadia. My name is Katherine, Katherine Moriarty. This is Avalon, its a Hospital for young people...who are broken.
In what kind of way?
All kinds of ways!
Inadia leaps from her bed and over to the window. She pulls back the blinds to discover the promisingly peaceful country that rests within inches of her fingertips, which she notices are pressed fiercely against the heavy glass.
How did I end up all the way out here? I was heading south.
Katherine moves from her bed over to Inadia's.
Beats me. You're a real big mystery to all of the doctors and staff here. They have been talking about you since you got here. No one knows where you came from.
Inadia moves to the other side of the room where the her bags rest. She checks her things.
My journals, they've taken them.
Katherine appears at her side.
Spiral binding. They're not allowed, along with anything we can potentially hurt ourselves with.
Katherine looks down at Inadia's arms. They're covered in marks, scars, and bruises.
What happened to your arms?
Its nothing.
Inadia reintroduces herself to her bed.
She leaps onto the bed, inches away from Inadia's face.
No more sleep. You've been sleeping for days. I'm famished, we'll go scare up something to eat.
Your standard bare white walls, that seem to go on forever no matter what direction you are traveling in. Katherine leads Inadia by the hand.
CAPTION: These white walls feel like atrophy that nestle at the top of the bog... Waiting for me to float to the top.
CAPTION: This is such a strange place.
CAPTION: I have never seen anything like it in my short life.
INADIA looks down at her new friend.
CAPTION: And who is this strange girl in this strange place? Her placid red hair that mimics hotel curtains, a motionless mass that cuts into this insipid backdrop.
They pass the first room. Inside sits another young lady much older than Katherine but younger than Inadia. She looks spent, empty, desperate. Inadia watches her in wonder.
That's Tortis. She's been here as long as me. She WAS in the special patients ward. But Mrs. Avalon moved her up here not too long ago.
They continue past another room. Yet another female dwells inside, this one a tall, statuesque figure, she's frozen in front of a half finished portrait, her clothes covered in paint.
That's Martha. She's only been her a couple weeks.
Inadia notices that her wrists are heavily bandaged.
She tried to kill herself. She keeps to herself though, so you don't have to worry about her getting out of place.
Martha turns around and her eyes immediately lock with Inadia's. She smiles, warm, friendly, almost invasive, then back to work.
Inadia and Katherine are on their way again.

Corrigan (Unfinished Poem Number 2) [26 Feb 2006|11:50pm]
I have a view
A lucid panoramic display
It sheds bitterly splendid fragments of long forgotten ideas that pitter patter their way under my sheets
During the evenings when I am incapable of saying no, or when, I suppose no is better

Admittedly eager to drop, from which I am still articulating, hoping to reach that festively decorated bottom
Pity, I will never go deep enough for knowledge of tomorrow requires me to be honest
"Be still. It is far from over>"

It is true, I have lived to see another one fall from the vine
I should be high on heal, removing the boisterous markings on my flag
But alas I am a stubborn make, so I leave mine blank, optioning to stay in the trenches, never to surrender
Selfish Katie Corrigan, living and fighting another day

Another mission endorsed by the calm and chill from beneath my pillow
Another struggle in my limbs to press onto the angelic light that rests beyond those satin retractable clouds
Another decay just beneath the chin, deep into the center of me
Another smiles then peals
Another one drops
stab me please

Honey (Unfinished poem number 1) [26 Feb 2006|11:40pm]
[ mood | cold ]

I felt this sick chill upon confirmations
She'd come to a halt for anything
She came to a halt over everything
Blistered amber casing
The contents are still fresh
Still sweet
Still Beautiful

I say the same thing to you now that I said when the sharpness angled you
"Stay bright amy dear. Stay warm and pitiful. It isn't all in vain"
That smile, that soft infectious trademark
It runs thick, down my throat, through my inside and helps to mold my spine
A sweetheart in intent and not just structure
Even when the life pours out of you
I can't hope but form the most intricate pattern around you
So sharp, so bitter-sweet, so pitiful

stab me please

[17 Feb 2006|11:23pm]
help me please. i'm going to peices.
stab me please

Q [17 Feb 2006|10:51pm]
Its cold tonight
And I am an addict
Who is forced to sleep alone
I feel numb
I feel dead
I feel empty
I am falling apart inside
I know I said we were finished
But I couldn't keep away
I will never be able to forgive myself for what I am about to do
stab me please

[15 Feb 2006|10:44am]
i hurt myself today
being me
i don't care
no one else does
my own best friend hasn't spoken to me in four months
she doesn't even know that i am sick and dying
no one really cares about me, hence i don't care
well maybe if you werent so down all the time when you talk to people... like dont wear ur emotions on ur sleeves
people are shallow
and aren't my real friends
real friends just aren't around for the good times
not everyone is going to be happy
and just because a person is sad doesn't make them and worse than anyone else
you people expect everyone to be around when you get sad and the moment its reversed you leave
i've had a lifetime of experience in this
people never want to hear another persons problems
but they willillingly unload theirs
i'm fucking dying
i am entitled to be sad
ok but live these days not in depression but try and live it out to the fullest
eat me
i want to hear you say the same thing when you know when you're going to die
its so easy to say when your alive and well
ok then if your gonna be mean about it then why are you talking to me then im trying to help you
you aren't trying to help me
i seriously doubt you would care if i weren't dying
I want to
i dont want to freakin be here anymore
but i am
yes well you are here
and you get to live
i'll be dead in three months
trade places with me if you could and i would take it
you have a choice to live
i don't
its curtains for me
living and dying are both options for you
i don't have that
what i don't undertsand until this day
is how you tiny brains can pigeon hold a person
if they're sad once in their life they aren't entitled to be sad again
like life is one great big happy place
news flash
people will be sad more times than they are happy in their life
and if they can't accept that then oh well
i've been in and out of the hospital for the past three years
i know what color sickness is
its not that dramatic go out with a smile tube in your nose tv bullshit
its somber
its, dare i say, depressing
a person who wants to live and is dying is harder than a person who wants to die and is living
you wanna die so much
there are ways to take care of that
i want to live
and i can't
i'm done
end game
i can't even leave my bed somedays
i can't do much of anything anymore

Old entry...so depressing. [22 Jan 2006|12:25pm]

About a year and a half ago.


Does being a chain smoker or alcoholic count?


Two. I'd rather not talk about any.


Shaving razors and box cutters for my arms. Knives on my legs.


Arms, upper thighs, calf.


I carved someone's name in my leg. She's very upset with me because of it.


"I say that I don't care what people think, but inside I really do. I'm so self-conscious. I have incredibly low self-esteem. And I live in a very small, close-minded town."

In addition to that I am an ugly, fat, disgusting, sack of shit, so I tend to not dress with the idea of sex appeal in the back of my head. I wear alot of skirts, long sleeves, black "gothic" or dressy attire. I wear short sleeves sometimes so people can see my scars if they care to look at me. They normally scare them away.


I started cutting as a form of punishment for eating and going off my diet(I'm anorexic/bulimic). But I realized that there is more that I need to be harmed for. I basically hate myself for getting so fat, which led to five years of physical and sexual abuse in addition to the eight years of abuse before that. If I weren't fat I would have never had to be treated so poorly by my family and peers, and the rest of society. Eventually getting my self raped because of my body type pushed me over the edge. I hate my body and I want it to change. I hate being someone that is untouchable. Cutting keeps me in line. But I'm trying to quit. Its just very hard when you wake up hating yourself in addition to the many others that despise you as well.

Emma Mud Skin [22 Jan 2006|02:40am]
I never intended to be discovered in your shadow
I only wanted to know what it was like...to be you
So lovely and inspiring
Flawless, like vapor
Ashamed, I look at my arms, and they aren't so beautiful
So I hurry to cover them with unfortunate results
Same sky, same water, same blood
But still I look nothing like her

My rough skin slips akwardly into this fabric
Decorated maiden love armor, your nighttime silhouette
I want to battle and be victorious
To walk away virginal and waiting...to be desired...taken...moved

In retrospect, I learned to love something cold
Something firm
Sharp, and rich in answers
None of them brought me any closer to you
Weary, war torn, home sick
I travel far and wide to hem of your shadow
Where I take refuge in the shade of what was once a loving match
A merry tandom
A strange duo

[20 Apr 2005|07:58pm]
John Lowery's metamorphosis into John 5 didn't begin with a passion for shock rock, cosmetics, pyrotechnics, or gothic fashion. It started -- quite simply and purely -- with the guitar, as well as an almost fan-like appreciation for all styles of music. Before joining drummer Ginger Fish, bassist Twiggy Ramirez, and keyboardist M.W. Gacy in one of the most controversial bands of the past few years, 5 was an L.A. session player working with artists such as John Wetton, Robin Zander, Wilson Phillips, and Rick Springfield.

When he wanted to try working with a full-time band, 5 landed gigs with ex-Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford, rocker David Lee Roth, and country diva k.d. lang. The Manson gig was an unexpected surprise.

"Although I had never seen him play live, I was already a huge Manson fan," explains 5. "I had a chance to see him perform in '98, when I was playing in Europe with Halford, but Manson canceled the show. I was crushed. When I got home from the tour, Manson's manager called and asked if I would like to meet Manson for lunch. Absolutely! So I met him at the Gaucho Grill in L.A., and he told me about all the trouble he'd been having with guitar players. Then he asked me to join the band -- right there -- and gave me the name 'John 5.' It was very exciting how quickly it all happened."

The guitarist signed on in time to perform on the band's Mechanical Animals tour and participate in composing material for Manson's latest release, Holy Wood [Nothing/Interscope]. "The album is a concept work," says 5. "The songs stream together with musical themes and recurring melodies. Making the album was an intense experience because there was a bit of voodoo surrounding the recording process. But all the weird places we worked in, and all the unusual ways we recorded sounds, help make Holy Wood a really interesting record to listen to."

All 5's experience playing with a diverse array of artists didn't quite prepare him for Manson's auto-destruct stage shows, tracking Holy Wood in the allegedly haunted Harry Houdini house, or recording parts out in the rain. Here is the story of a guitarist rising to a number of challenges, maintaining his sanity, and playing some great stuff.

What was your first gig with Manson like?

It was live -- in front of the whole world -- on the MTV Video Music Awards. I had no idea what Manson was like onstage because I had never been to a gig. When I watch the video of the performance, I can tell I had no idea what was going to happen. But it was a great first show.

How does working with Manson differ from your previous musical experiences?

Every situation is different, and there are different levels of enjoyment. The k.d. lang gig was fun because I love playing country music. Writing songs and playing with David Lee Roth was a childhood dream come true, and working with Rob Halford was an amazing experience. He is the metal god. But working with Manson is the first time in my life where I've felt like I'm part of the band and not just a sideman.

Did you have to adjust your style to fit into Manson's band?

No, but only because I take a unique approach to practicing -- I always work on a different style of music from that of the band I'm playing with. For example, if I'm in a country band, I'll play metal or jazz. Now that I'm in this heavy band, I play bluegrass and country music all day. Playing styles that are very different from the band allows me to cover all the bases, keep up my chops, and maintain a fresh approach to the instrument. I also try to learn something new every day -- I'm always reading books on music theory.

Describe the writing process for Holy Wood.

It was a group-oriented process because we wanted the record to have a real band sound. Manson said this was the first time the band actually jammed on the songs before recording them. That was very cool.

How was the album recorded?

Instead of going into a regular studio, we rented the Houdini house in Laurel Canyon. We brought in an old-school analog tape machine and a vintage Neve console for tracking, and we used Pro Tools for editing. It was a trip because the house is believed to be haunted, and weird things were happening all the time. One night, our drummer Ginger slept in the house and woke up hearing piano music. It was about 8 a.m., and the band usually arrived around 1 p.m., so he thought someone had shown up early. He went downstairs and walked over to the piano, which was behind a curtain. He pulled back the curtain to see who was playing, and the music stopped. No one was there. If that was me, I'd be pretty frightened! Other strange things happened, too -- like the control room would flood for no reason. It was a very weird place. We did some additional tracking at Manson's house, which was where the Rolling Stones did Let It Bleed.

How did you approach the guitar tracks?

We did everything in an old-school, '70s-style way with a few powerful guitar tracks turned up real loud. At the most, there are three or four layered guitar parts on each song, each with very different sounds. I'm really proud of the sounds on Holy Wood, and the tracks sound great when you lie back and listen to them wearing headphones.

Did you have a general setup for lead and rhythm sounds?

I wish there was, but we changed gear for every single song and performance -- guitars, amps, effects, mics, rooms, and everything -- so I can't recall everything that was used on each track or the way it was recorded. We did a lot of off-the-wall stuff, too. We'd sometimes play the guitar track through headphones, crank up the volume, and mic the headphones. We used every part of the house to record. I played in the kitchen, bathroom, backyard, and everywhere possible, and it often took hours of placing mics to get the sounds together.

We had lots of equipment in the studio -- all sorts of weird stuff I would never use live. For amps, we had an old European Davoli, some '70s Marshalls, a Fender Twin, a Laney, and a few Oranges. For guitars, we had several '70s Gibson Les Pauls and doublenecks. But the main guitars used on the album were Manson's Ibanez Artist, a Les Paul, and a Jackson Randy Rhoads model from Twiggy's collection. Also, the second engineer had a great '70s Les Paul. It had such a great tone that it was used at one time or another on every song. For effects, we had all these old Foxx and Electro-Harmonix effects pedals from the '70s. We would just experiment with everything until we found the perfect sound. The actual performances didn't take long at all.

How did you record the acoustic sounds on "Lamb of God"?

I used a beat-up '52 Gibson acoustic, which I also used to record the parts on "The Fall of Adam" and "In the Shadow of the Valley of Death." For "Lamb of God," we miked the guitar in a very unusual way. There were about seven mics set up around me and then more mics set up around the guitar. There were so many mics that I couldn't move an inch. To make things even worse, they put this big blanket over me to deaden the sound. It was so hot under there that I was sweating and couldn't breathe. I knew I'd have to get the part right, or I was going to die if I had to keep doing it over. Luckily, I was able to cut the track quickly. In contrast to that experience, I recorded "The Fall of Adam" outside in the pouring rain. We did a lot of odd things to make all the parts sound very different -- even if we were using the same gear.

Did you use any alternate tunings?

I used a few open tunings for certain parts. In "Godeatgod" I used a very strange tuning -- [low to high] B, D, D, G, B, E, and for the intro of "The Fall Of Adam," I tuned [low to high] F, A, F, Ab, C, F. Having played in a lot of country bands, I've learned that alternate tunings sometimes sound better because the strings ring out on certain chords and produce a sweeter sound. I would figure something out, do the track, and then write down the tuning so I wouldn't forget it. When I play any of those songs that I recorded in open tunings onstage, I transpose them to standard tuning and make the best of it. I can't really switch guitars in the middle of a song.

How does your live rig differ from the gear you used in the studio?

My live rig is fairly simple compared to the pile of vintage gear we had in the studio. I use two Laney VH100 heads -- one is a backup -- and Laney 4x12 cabinets. They've proven to be extremely tough. The vintage stuff would never survive a live Manson show! He'll come over and smash my amps or light them on fire, and the Laneys just keep going. It's hilarious! I've also put all my pedals in rack drawers behind the stage, because on the last tour, Manson smashed up my pedalboard. And there's nothing more stressful than having your guitar sound snuffed out. For this tour, I'm using a Rocktron MIDI pedalboard, which is as tough as nails.

In the pedal rack, I have a Boss Super Overdrive, an Ibanez Smash Box, a Boss Chorus, an Ibanez Chorus/Flanger -- which was the most used pedal on Holy Wood -- set for a very warbly sound, a Guyatone Tremolo and Wah-Rocker, a prototype Ibanez Lo-Fi pedal, a Guyatone Phaser, an Ibanez digital delay, a Line 6 delay, and a Dunlop wah and a volume pedal.

How do you set your amp's tone controls for live shows?

I go for a very light distortion and a real deep, bassy tone. I set the gain around 3, the volume around 6, bass on 10, middle on 4, and treble on 8. I always change the tone slightly for every arena or hall because they all sound different. I'm also using a Palmer direct system -- instead of miking the cabinets -- so when Manson trashes the stage, I don't have to worry about mics going down and cutting out my guitar sound.

What guitars do you take on the road?

I'm always changing guitars during the show, so I bring a lot of them on tour. My main guitar is an Ibanez AX. It's a great guitar with a very full tone. I have four of those and backups for everything else. I'm also using an Ibanez Iceman and three Les Pauls -- a tobacco sunburst Standard, a black three-pickup Custom, and a cherry sunburst Standard. For acoustic parts I use a Taylor 914, but for the times when I have to switch between electric and acoustic sounds during the same song, I use an Ibanez RG electric with a piezo system.

How do you like your guitars set up?

I like the action very low because I have a very light touch. I never break strings. I use D'Addario .009s on most of the Ibanez guitars, and .010s on the three-pickup Les Paul. I've got .011s on one of the Ibanez guitars that's tuned down to C#. I also adjust my guitar strap higher up -- like a jazz guy would play. It makes a big difference in your hand position if the guitar isn't hanging below your waist. Some guys can play that way, but I can't.

What things have you learned that have helped you become a better musician?

One thing you have to understand is that the tone is in your fingers. Page, Van Halen, Hendrix -- their sound is in the way they fret notes and pick. Also, when I was younger and I saw Rush or early Who, I could hear each instrument very well, and the band didn't sound like a bunch of noise -- that inspired the kind of sound I want. It's really important to me that the audience can hear every note. My rhythm guitar tone is very clean, and, for solos, I'll click on a heavier distortion, but I make sure the sound isn't muddy. If you ever go to a Manson show, you'll hear every little squeak my guitar makes.

What goals have you set for the future?

Who knows what will come in the future, but when I'm much older, you may be flipping through the channels one Saturday night and see me playing at the Grand Ole Opry. And Manson will probably be there, too -- throwing water bottles at me!

Back in Business [19 Apr 2005|11:46pm]
Its been a while but Paganesanders is up and running again. I will be writing in this journal again to coincide with the creation of Movement I by InAdia. I'll post pictures, lyrics, and bits and pieces on the concept behind it. I will have to rebuild everything, as I have lost many people on friend's list. Hopefully this will make room for more devoted followers. Time to get it done baby.

Return of the Yellow Star [05 Jan 2005|01:31am]
Belated aperture blocks the merger on the opposing end
Elated amateur, have you never done anything like this before?
Do I simply lay hands upon the deceased and wait for the burn?
Or should I panic and rush these manic eyes into the pit of her throat?

I am frightened
How can she test me with these curves in my hands?
All that I am aware of is this heat that surfaces then fades
I have never breathed life into the living, how can I with the dead?
I am so very anxious to end her delay

This Russian primitive travels in a neo native form
Confidence, subdued, in the movement of her cracked lips
An astonishing liberty
Heaven benefits from the work of these stems
She laughs aloud in envy
She is moving

Hands above the skin
Stretched at the hip She shakes in odd stone references as she turns over into the acid
Pull me across the ravine so that I may starve in the company of ancient form and matter
Hands diligently washed as I prepare her for the acid

I am pronounnced as a bate worthy catch in the eyes of this maturated wire mold

Born, branded, and shaped
Wicked tongue for a contemporary martyr

I have had better days
I am almost certain that I have had better days than this

How tragic, this day will be known as a play in the form of the acid
My name whispered above the breath of the mother country, who gives way to the acid and slowly erupt into flames
I smirk in denial as I cool my hands and wait for another

Born, branded, shaped
Our impartial martyr
Generous daughter of the flame

I am ecstatic
To place my hands on the lifeless
It is my mission to rid this girl of her sting and eventual torture
Immaculate as fire aperture

Miracle charm

Their hope bends to the will of my heart
My hands, dried and prepared, reach out in vain
For this rope

The hole cancels out what they adore
The day, it rests on the back of my neck

I removed her breath from the air of despair
My road is restricted by the strength of this glass
I weep, hoping not to advance
To never follow this predestined rope to the end

Resist and accept
The cold ache of space is waiting for me
stab me please

Skin Hunger [26 Dec 2004|05:20pm]
My delay from ages ago is more than a mere cosmic grind to an ever motionless planet
From this malign distance I can feel the cold air mixing into the ash on my acid worn finger tips
I have been made humble again by the plasticity of my situation
What keeps me here?
I am destined to be light years away, examining my faith, trying to come to terms with what needs to be done

I sometimes feel the urge to remove all of my clothing
Divide up my skin, and let the masses cart me away
I will no longer be whatever it was that I was intended to be
And once again this merger will come to a halt

It is impossible for me to take to the skies
And the warmth
I have learned to make due without
I am discovering marks on my back that do not have an origin
My choice to dwell is no longer an option, now that the treatments has become more dynamic
Dancing solutions, my eyes have fixed upon their wooden grace
Marching toward the puddle where I lay
Waste I would have made of them all
If only I were not so weak
But that will change
The blood will reseed
The hunger will go away

Heroine covered in glass
Free from the touch of the world
My mission does not reward
Mother has said Inyadja must not want what others have
She praises the filthy godsend that has me trapped inside of this starvation
When the hunger becomes to great
I begin to...

The pains have made it impossible for me to speak at length
So I disguise my fatigue in the form of necessity
Offering myself to you
Has compromised the inevitable truth to my purpose

Wedding speech and older bells drown out the longing as I am given away by the air to the cosmic laughter of an ever violent hole
Still, it is to wide to ever wrap itself around me
My mother's voice has thickened
I can almost recognize the pattern of the stars, the pattern of these walls

I have returned to this dusty familiar floor
My muscles scream, my eyes foggy
Bitter belief runs all over
I cannot keep doing this
Inyadja wishes to go back inside
Grant her a roof so that she may spread her grief in front of you
Open your arms and gather her will, feed her to the earth
Perhaps it is better that she expires this way
When the hunger becomes this great
She begins to shake
She begins to shake
stab me please
