The latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine (dated June 10, 2004) features an article entitled "Rocker Diaries — Fred Durst and Marilyn Manson Sound Off On-line," by Gillian Telling. A photograph of Marilyn Manson with the caption "Manson: Spreading virtual ringworm" is found at the top of the article, which lists web addresses for and quotes from the on-line journals of several musicians, including Billy Corgan, Moby, Fred Durst, Ryan Adams, Andrew W.K., and Marilyn Manson. Rolling Stone characterizes Manson's journal entries as "a very goth-y collection of musings on the world," teasing the readers with this choice sampling: "Our stigmata will stagnate and we will shake, shake hands like little boys — if boys were just like puppies — spreading our ringworms."
