FEBRUARY 1999

I'm very proud of your creativity. keep it up, because if I can be a star so can any of you.

Let me tell any disbelievers, I'm not ashamed to be a success at what I love to do. If anyone thinks I am more successful because I shed my so called "goth" image or sound, you're wrong. I will always have trouble getting to the mainstream. I congratulate and thank you guys for getting us this far.

I change because I like to be different than what's around me, when other bands change their eyes like I did 7 years ago (limp dick, psycornica, even my friend rob z.) or do goth covers of 80s songs (orgly) or every person I see has black hair --I just wanted something more interesting to me. I'm not saying I dislike any of those things (my hair is still black by the way), I just wanted something new. I'm inspired by things I liked as a kid and try to bring back true rock n roll. If it becomes a formula then fuck it. I do this because I enjoy it, my band enjoys it and you enjoy it.

Hole? you may ask yourself. what could be more interesting? phony videos.com? yeah, and I was on the wonder years. dismembered acss? evolved...haven't you?

we are making the most beautiful and disturbing video we have ever done-- Coma White

my gift to you

Article:

I will be posting the numbers of radio stations in every city later this week. If we bombard them, we can help destroy their lame selection of music. I am looking for dedicated missionaries that are willing to waste their spare time doing this work. we are capable of making radio stations play a song that says DRUGS over and over.

anyone interested keep looking here I will compile a list of people in each city and I will guarantee back stage passes.

in the mean time you guys probably know your local request lines. hassle them for DRUGS

I will deliver you into the backstage promised land.

READ THIS AND SHARE IT
How many of you are familiar with the pretentious few in aol message boards? STARK and his pals? Let me have a laugh. isn't it interesting that someone is inspired by you, admires you to the point that they share your ideals. Then one day they think they know more than you, or are "too cool". Or that these were their ideas to begin with. They forget why they are there in the first place. so they just complain about what was or how they have more integrity, blah, blah...ad nauseum.

I encourage or challenge anyone who thinks they can do what I do to just do it. Be my guest.

write an album. make a video. I'll buy it. Trust me, I love criticism. I'm a critic. I just pity and detest uncreative whiners, and armchair rock stars. Be something before you try to challenge someone else's dreams.

Those few "elitist" fans treat us real music fans and music makers just like the rest of the world we fight so hard to smash.

I'd waste my energy destroying manson bashers, manson traitors or every bullshit christian I see. But I go to bed knowing they will wake up everyday and have to live their shitty, miserable lives and THAT is the worst punishment of all.

so someone asked how should we handle assholes? remind them they're losers and ignore them. If that doesn't work, find out where they live and remind them in person.

I love you and the band thanks you for kicking ass. Let's conquer these shitty radio playlists and start our fucking revolution!

do I have anyone's attention?

I have not been hacked and that was me the past few days. to those that said I wasn't being an asshole, go fuck yourself. It's those kind of comments that make us all act like assholes. Next week there will be a list created to give passes for each city (not tickets). Stay tuned for those numbers to radio stations. I know alot of you have already started. That kind of support is unbelievable. You are undoubtedly the greatest fans in the world. New or old. And to wannabe-elitist fans who think if you bought mechanical animals at the mall, you're not cool enough--well, other fans said that about them when they bought sweet dreams, etc...

I'm here for a few minutes to talk

I just read metal hammer and both interviews, mine and twig's are COMPLETELY fabricated. In fact I doubt anything in that article is true, just slag. so read it if you want but it's not from this band. I am talking to the owner on monday. But who really cares, people love to make shit up, I'm use to it.

I don't expect you to do everything I say. I'm just communicating, if you can help, I thank you.

could you please tell scummy4@alt music this is me and to go fuck himself. by the way if he has a complaint, come see me in person, rather than acting brave behind an anonymous screen name. any city, no bodyguard required.

kisses, marilyn manson

11:01 PM - EXEGESIS

sometimes we admire the feathers and ignore the dying bird.

11:26 PM - UNDERSTAND THIS, TELL OTHERS

in my dream vultures chase me into my burning house. there, they pick out the brains of my family, dismember them--

devour

I emerge from my home and I am burning, skin falling away like a snake as the structure crumbles into a black skeleton.

I cannot fight off the vultures.

a young man or woman emerges from the ashes.

he/she doesn't save me, because he/she is holding my cracked and swollen heart in one hand and a piece of paper in the other.

i can read it.

it discusses and compares in great detail the differences between me and the vultures.

he wraps my heart in the paper and tosses it to the ground.

can you see?

_____________________________________________________

11:30 PM - understand, explain

sometime in our life, our creations will experience an exegesis.

they won't need us.

i don't just mean machines

2:11 PM - UPDATE

I hope everyone had time to read my posts last night.

they are meant for you to learn something from.

the radio call-in system is beginning to work, so please continue requesting "I don't like the drugs..." I find it amusing to think normal people will be singing along to that and not get the irony. Lizard King and steve at angelmanson are in charge, so please help them find more missionaries. the names for passes are being filled in each city so talk to them soon.

another thing, if anyone wants to relay this particular statement to other newsgroups. 5 out of 6 Big Day outs were completely sold out and the one that wasn't had over 25,ooo fans. Just because one show went bad doesn't mean our headlining festival of Australia (we did choose our slot, because we were the headliners) was a failure. It was a huge success and I thank the fans who came to see us. We only stopped our show because a glass bottle cut my leg open and Pogo got a concussion, we weren't booed off. I wish we were. It's like the old days. That's rock for you.

Love and I am,

marilyn manson

Thank you for your brilliant poetry and ideas, it's great to see us using this mechanical format for something important. in this age, we're dying and I want to make a few more things for you before all is said and done

a gun only contains so many bullets so please watch where each one of mine lands

I'd like to talk to you next week live

rock is dead will actually be the next single, coma white will follow

this bbs is being recreated to feature sections for each bandmember

I do love you and I wish we didn't have to die like this. but that's what we asked for.
