Marilyn Manson -- Eat Me, Drink Me (Interscope) Turns out that underneath all the latex and nihilism, the shock-rocker just wanted to be loved. And he was, for a while. But when his marriage to burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese fell apart last year, Manson was distraught until a new romance with barely post-jailbait actress Evan Rachel Wood helped lift him out of depression. He channeled his competing emotions into the songs on his latest, which is perhaps his least intentionally antagonistic album.

For years, Florida was known as a pretty wholesome place. Between Disney World, Cape Canaveral, the Daytona Speedway and Miami Beach, it seemed a great place to bring the family, a state where things rarely got rowdier than Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale.These days, though, there are some pretty dark doings in the Sunshine State. Not only has Tampa become the death metal capital of the world, but the state has also unleashed the likes of Mike Diana, whose grisly 'zine Boiled Angel made him the only cartoonist ever to be convicted of obscenity, and the Genitorturers, a band whose show includes bondage, S&M and onstage body piercing.

You thought you knew Marilyn Manson, the self-proclaimed "Antichrist Superstar" and one of the most controversial performers of the 1990s. He's the one with the strange makeup, bizarre contact lenses and hit albums extolling sex, drugs and Satanism. But time has softened the artist. Kind of. His look is still spooky, but his music these days is more revealing and romantic - in a dark, gothic way, of course. On Eat Me, Drink Me, Manson's latest album and sixth release overall, the artist is uncharacteristically vulnerable.

The Matrix Reloaded, with its all-out media blitz, is such a masterful stroke of marketing that it should be studied in business classes as well as film classes. Just look at the double-CD soundtrack: It's full of the big-name, radio-ready metal AND electronica that appeals to The Matrix's core kung fu-and-comics crowd. While the music supervisor is Jason Bentley, known as a DJ on L.A.'s NPR outlet and as a club DJ often playing esoteric dance music, he pumps up the volume on his commercial instincts here.

Have you seen the latest demon movie? Al Pacino in "Devil's Advocate," with his novelty-store fangs? Have you heard the new tune by Marilyn Manson (who hit the heights with "Antichrist Superstar"), or anything by other devil-worshipping rock stars?If so, you might wonder at the continuing preoccupation in this country with satanism, satanic cults and all their foul and bloody rituals. Such as they are. Clearly, these days people expect the worst. Especially these days.Why else would those who run animal shelters around the state (( be extra protective of the black cats under their care in the weeks before Halloween?

Harrison pilgrimage not seen in India Indian officials yesterday played down reports Beatles guitarist George Harrison's ashes were to be immersed in India's holy Ganges River. "I think the whole story is a creation of the media," Varanasi city police Inspector-General Vikram Singh told Reuters. Harrison's last rites have been shrouded in secrecy since a Hare Krishna official said on Monday the musician's family was expected to visit the holy city of Varanasi for the ritual. "As far as the administration is concerned, I don't think there's anything happening because normally any important people would seek official assistance even for a private ritual," Singh said.
