I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

18 September 2001 | 15:44:18 GMT/UTC

Marilyn Manson has spoken about last Tuesday's terrorist attacks in the United StatesMarilyn Manson has posted a message on his website about last Tuesday's terrorist attacks in the United States.

A message on www.marilynmanson.com says: "Even someone like me can show respect for those killed yesterday and for the people protecting our lives."

He continued: "I have always said that I hate so much and love so much about this country. Of course we would love more freedom, but let's not forget what we already have. And the freedom to live without fear. When I say for us to unite I mean as like-minded individuals and as friends."

The 'God of Fuck' also said that he has his family and friends to worry about: "I don't expect the country to come together because of this tragedy, but at least we can here. Everyone is scared and confused and I wish I had more to offer. Right now I have my friends and family to worry about. I hope you all stay safe."
