#Marks / Signs
1Powerful multi-octave baritone voice
2Dark sunglasses
3Both the band Samhain and Danzig use a skull trademark (trademark of Misfits was the Crimson ghost skull, of Samhain was a demon skull).


1My view on Democrats is that they're fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates. You're not allowed to say anything they don't agree with. You're not allowed to do anything. Also the whole Obama, "I can kill anybody with a drone with no trial" is kind of disturbing. I'm surprised that more people who are supposedly OK with them, because he's Obama. It's bullshit.
2It's okay for Christians throughout centuries to exterminate races and for their priests to rape little kids throughout decades, but trying to give the people the power to think and be individual, that's evil?
