    I can't say I wasn't selective when I chose that specific part of the video...

    Recently at Manson's shows on the mayhem Tour he has giant white flash cards he shifts through when he performs Arma-goddamn-motherfucking-geddon. The cards say "FUCK', 'EAT', 'KILL', and "ETC." respectively.

    I also noticed today that on Dead To The World, there is a shot of a protester cycling through flash cards with different pro-christian messages written on them.

    Knowing my personal love of alliteration, in relation to your observations Norsefire, it's worth noting of course that Amblin Entertainment is Steven Spielberg's company, also set up with Kathleen Kennedy. And whether coincidental or not, the "MA" highlighted in the Manson name is of course the same initials as Mechanical Animals, which deals with an alien creature at odds with humanity, much like E.T., who features in the same enlargened portion of the Amblin Entertainment logo. "A" and "E" are also the 1st and 5th letters of the alphabet. Nice observation, and not too wacky, I believe I saw a similar comparison with the Animal Planet (a curious combination of letters in relation to the album just mentioned...?) logo:-



    I forget whose that was originally, apologies.

    Also, this is interesting, I was considering the fact that Manson has said that The High End Of Low is the record he should have made with Twiggy after Holy Wood. Burning Flag (perhaps the most overtly political song on that album), features these lyrics:-
    "We are all just stars and were waiting
    We are all just scarred* and we're hating
    We are all just stars on your burning flag"



    And Manson is currently wearing the American flag for live performances of We're From America. Considering that the flag is "burning", does that mean America has gone Into The Fire...?

    *Leave A Scar
    _______________

    Here are some thoughts on the recent MySpace stills Manson has posted:-

    "Drown in our blood"



    Manson in (s)AINT, and a new imagel from Running To The Edge Of The World.

    Also, I am reminded of the link between featured "lookalikes" and music videos. Justin Timberlake used a Britney Spears lookalike for his Cry Me A River video, and was dressed in dark hood, behaving like a stalker (rapist werewolf?):-



    Justin Timberlake - Cry Me A River



    "You're not crying, this is blood all over me"
    "the Serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which
    the LORD god had made
    "

    even more so does she look like Evan in one of the pics you see of this girl in the thread SD made in the news section if you've not already checked it out. Nice work guys as usual.
