I want to fuck you like an aminal
I want to feel you from the inside it is.
is a Cleveland native
Tell me about it.
I never got around to marrying him. I was so adamant about doing it when I was 14 and 15. :
Downward Spiral was another album that got me through High school...Happy Birthday Trent
Good song if you want to drive your car very fast.
The bass player in the video is Geordie White aka Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson's band.
Nine Inch Nails is truly the band that made me realize that I was/am "weird".
Love, lone, love NIN.
Not really. He lived in Cleveland for a while, but he's from PA. And he HATED Cleveland (although, he had a lot of issues w/a lot of places).
I don't think it was too smart of him to have children. This is someone who doesn't need to have children. Oh well, done now ...
