Unraveling the Meaning of Marilyn Manson's New Teaser Video

Marilyn Manson's new teaser video, by which he announced his new record label Nuclear Blast and introduced us to new music after nearly four years, is also rich with imagery and symbolism in its brief one minute and ten second duration. It's not clear if this teaser is complete in itself or just a portion of something else to come, nonetheless I observed a possible explanation as to what we may be looking at, and I wanted to share my thoughts and open it up to criticism so we can arrive at the truth. From what we have gathered so far, we know that Manson is bringing back the imagery of the Tryptich ( Antichrist Superstar , Mechanical Animals , Holy Wood ), with a special emphasis on the revolutionary theme of Holy Wood , since a parallel is being drawn to what inspired its creation (Manson being blamed for inspiring the Columbine shooters, the cancelation of his tour that ensued and his ultimate comeback) with Manson's current troubles of accusations against him and his s

Jeff Anderson Partners With a Coalition of Women in Issuing a Report Against Accused Musicians and Executives in the Music Industry

On February 28th 2024 in Los Angeles, attorney Jeff Anderson, who is the current attorney in the case of Bianca Kyne vs. Brian Warner/Marilyn Manson, led a group of women at a press event, during which there was presented a report that reveals over 35 musicians accused of sexual misconduct and over 18 executives accused of sexual assault, misconduct, or cover-up of crimes. In this report are covered seven decades of sexual abuse and coverup, from the 1950s to the present, with Marilyn Manson having 16 pages of coverage. This event was covered by Rolling Stone and The Washington Post , among other publications.   This is the first stage of a coordinated campaign of a coalition of four women-led non-profits ( The Representation Project , Lift Our Voices , The Punk Rock Therapist , Female Composer Safety League ) that will launch a multi-month, aggressive advocacy campaign to hold the music industry accountable for sexual violence. According to the press release , "survivors and al

Marilyn Manson Shares Valentine's Day Photos (February 14, 2024) - Some Possible Meanings Behind Recent Manson Imagery

The day prior to Valentine's Day, Lindsay posted some of her photos in anticipation, but on February 14th itself Manson posted photos of himself taken by Lindsay. The first thing he did was change his profile photo on all his social media to the image at the top of this page, then he posted the following photo:     The last time Manson changed his profile photo was on May 15, 2023 with the caption: "I’ve got something for you to hear," and I pointed out some of the relevant imagery of that photo. May 15th is the wedding anniversary of Manson and Lindsay. Now we have another profile change on February 14th, Valentine's Day, which besides all the historical Manson symbolism behind the day, can also be seen as another occasion for Manson and Lindsay to celebrate their love. And of course, both photos were taken by Lindsay. The latest profile picture has no accompanying caption, so let's take a closer look at it and see what significance there may be to it. To break

The Media Manipulation of the Recent Legal Fee Rulings Against Marilyn Manson

On May 9, 2023, Judge Teresa Beaudet did not find Marilyn Manson "demonstrated a probability of prevailing on his IIED [infliction of emotional distress] claim based on Wood ‘recruiting, coordinating, and pressuring multiple women to make false accusations against Warner and to be part of their film project.’" She also declared Evan's and Ilma Gore’s comments about Groupie to be a “protected activity.” To this ruling, Manson’s attorney, Howard King, described the ruling as “disappointing but not unexpected.” “The Court telegraphed this outcome when it refused to consider the bombshell sworn declaration of former plaintiff Ashley Smithline,” King told Rolling Stone . “The failure to admit this critical evidence, along with the Court’s decision to not consider Ms. Gore’s iPad, the contents of which demonstrated how she and Ms. Wood crafted a forged FBI letter, will be the subject of an immediate appeal to the California Court of Appeal,” he added. Judge Baudet, who complai

Evan Rachel Wood Repeats the Lie She Was a Magician's Assistant ... Among Her Other Lies

Evan Interviewed on Live With Kelly and Mark On November 4, 2022, Evan Rachel Wood appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan to promote her role as Madonna in the movie Weird: The Al Yankovic Story . During this interview, she told a story that she was once a magician's assistant when she was 20 years old, and toured with this magician "for a bit" during which time she would be confined into a very small space to play the body parts of someone being sawed in half, and her head would also be removed. I wrote about this bizarre story at the time (see " Was Evan Rachel Wood Really a Magician's Assistant? "), after I determined that in fact Evan was never a magician's assistant who she supposedly toured with when she was 20, but instead what she did was replaced the story of her touring with Marilyn Manson when she was 20 with this fictional story. On February 15, 2024, a little over one year after the above-mentioned appearance, Evan again went on what is now c

After Accusing Instagram of Assaulting Her Neurodivergent Brain, Evan Rachel Wood Dumped Me On Valentine's Day

Evan Rachel Wood has been posting a lot lately on Instagram in her Instastories, especially over the past three weeks or so while starring in the off-broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors , and then a few weeks ago she got sick for a week and had to sit out from performing and missed interviews on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen , Today with Hoda & Jenna and Live with Kelly and Mark (which was rescheduled for February 15th). Her posts rarely have to do with her work and are more focused on inspiring and advising and a bit of rebuking here and there. Then, as the clock struck midnight on the east coast ushering in Valentine's Day, I noticed Evan post the following Instastory:     These are things that Evan has complained about before, but here she seems especially reactive to something she had encountered very recently. It was not long ago where she was blaming Twitter for working against her, which she says was part of the reason she deleted her account there

Lindsay Warner Shares Valentine's Day Photos (February 13, 2024)

      On February 13, 2024, Lindsay Warner shared 6 new beautiful photographs on her Instagram page , along with one separate photo in her Instastories, the latter of which was shared by Marilyn Manson in his stories, along with the above photo captioned "Forever Valentine".  Valentine's Day is a significant theme in the work of Manson that we have seen a number of times, going back to his song "Valentine's Day" from Holy Wood . Besides also seeing it featured in some of his log-term past relationships, February 14th has also been a day when Manson has sometimes released some sort of new material. To add to this, it has been said that three songs from the Triptych were recorded on Valentine's Day ("Irresponsible Hate Anthem" - 1996, "I Want to Disappear" - 1998, and "Born Again" - 2000) to signify the beginning of Manson's revolution, which has been commemorated (repeated?) ever since. Most interesting among these photos

Marilyn Manson Has Completed His 20 Hours of Community Service

On September 18, 2023, Marilyn Manson pleaded no contest to charges that he blew his nose on videographer Susan Fountain at a 2019 New Hampshire concert, and for this he was ordered to pay a small fine and perform 20 hours of community service. When he was asked by a reporter after this verdict how he planned to spend his community service, Manson said: "Hopefully work with people in rehab." He had till February 4th to complete his community service. The Associated Press reported on February 3, 2024, that Marilyn Manson completed his 20 hours of community service last month, and his certificate of completion was submitted to the courts on January 30th. The community service was done at the Glendale Windsor Club, a non-profit organization whose "primary purpose is to provide meeting locations for Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon groups (families of alcoholics) to achieve a more meaningful life through recovery," according to their website . According to the court o

Mexico Wants To See Marilyn Manson

On February 1st, 2024, Ricardo Gallardo Cardona, Governor of San Luis Potosí, took the following poll on his Facebook page and posted it along with the poster above: Ahijadxs, who would you like to see at the #Fenapo2024? Tell me in the comments 👇🏻 👍🏼 Mötley Crüe ❤️ Marilyn Manson The Potosina National Fair, known as La FENAPO, is one of the largest and most important fairs of San Luis Potosí and one of the most important throughout Mexico. Last year this event was internationalized, and the diversification of artists and bands, with free presentations, boosted the growth of regional tourism. Governor Ricardo Gallardo is seeking to repeat this in 2024, by inviting a line up of bands at the Teatro de Pueblo. To see what the people want before he makes his proposals, over the next few weeks he will be conducting polls, the first being a choice of either Motley Crue or Marilyn Manson. As of February 3rd, the two bands seem to be neck and neck, with about 1400 votes each.
