Before Brian Warner made the transformation into Marilyn Manson, he was a music journalist at 25th Parallel, a local Florida music magazine. One of his co-workers, Nancy Marzuli, is still a big fan and regularly posts to the Mansonusa,, and Gidget Gein message boards as 1989 BCC Classmate. In a recent post at Mansonusa, she described her involvmenet as such:

"I wrote for them as associate editor, Manson was a staff writer. We switched positions and in the issue here he is assoc editor...I left the mag after being asked to loan Paul and Richard 3 thousand dollars to keep the magazine afloat..I didnt give them the cash..I just quit...LOL"
