I Was a Witness to the GET OUT “Garden Party Massacre!”

Nestled into the leafy hills of Universal City, CA lies a cul-de-sac called Colonial Street — a set of seemingly innocuous suburban houses which have served, over the years, as the location for shows like LEAVE IT TO BEAVER and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. It was against this backdrop that Universal Pictures decided (with no small amount […]

Yeah, I know — it shouldn’t surprise anyone, myself included, to discover Marilyn Manson’s Instagram isn’t exactly packed with funny cat memes and touchy-feely inspirational quotes (although I must admit that would be kind of amazing). But, it would seem, the infamous shock-rocker — or at least his PR people — has been very busy […]
