THE MOST IMPORTANT DATES & '5 TO 1'

Prior to launch, a countdown of animated teasers were uploaded to the main site domain chronologically, representing aspects of Manson's work. The seven stages are as follows.

31.10.2009 THIS IS HALLOWEEN
As a nod to Manson's 2006 cover song, the first holding screen for PROVIDER MODULE debuted on Halloween night, 2009, with both www.providermodule.com being made accessible as a public location, and our personalised 'Not Found' error screen representing forthcoming content.


22.11.2009 THE PRESIDENT IS DEAD
Celebrating John F. Kennedy's 'Deathday', the first of five animations depicts the dead President as Celebritarian martyr in The Death Parade. Television debate audio aired after Kennedy's assassination can be heard over the imagery, with an audible quote reflecting the work being carried out on the site at that time: "They do not want it shown to the public, before they study it in detail"

29.11.2009 CREATE EVIL ON CANVAS
People are apparently horrified by violent cinema, but how is what you see in a theatre worse than what human beings actually do to one another? It all ends up on camera regardless... This teaser used the duality of real and fake images of the following:-

Bonnie And Clyde - Mickey And Mallory [Natural Born Killers]
The bodies of Eric Harris & Dylan Klebold - School Shooters [Elephant]
Jon Benet Ramsay - Jeremiah [The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things]
Adolf Hitler - Hynkel (Charles Chaplin) [The Great Dictator]
Henry Lee Lucas victim - Screen Corpse [Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer]
Charles Manson - Otis Firefly [The Devil's Rejects]
Elizabeth Short "The Black Dahlia" - Laura Palmer [Twin Peaks]

The final comparison was between Marlene Dietrich (specifically her character Bijou Blanche dressed in white military costume in the film Seven Sinners) and Marilyn Manson (wearing a similar white military outfit, most likely inspired by the former as seen in the booklet for The Golden Age Of Grotesque.
One other face featured was a sneaky picture of Twiggy dressed as Charles Manson on Halloween 2009, the same date the site first manifested. Over the "death beat" heard playing, there is also distorted audio of Alfred Hitchcock speaking.

06.12.2009 GOD PISSING DOWN ON YOU
Piss Christ was the most controversial theological artwork to debut in 1989, the year of inception for Marilyn Manson. We incorporated it into an animation that ushered in not only the third teaser for site launch, but also contained a precursory reference to the anniversary of John Lennon's death on Decemeber 8th. In between the change from crucifix to Doublecross, images of Lennon and Manson on the cross in the Coma White video were interspliced.

13.12.2009 THE FACE OF A DEAD STAR
Sex sex sex... and death. A video report of Marilyn Monroe's tragic death plays on VCR, overseen by Monroe's own mournful face... As the tape plays softly, the viewer is assaulted suddenly by the flash of Charles Manson's face merging with that of Monroe's.



20.12.2009 BEHIND THE SUN
The final teaser is a 20 year "Acid Trip" through the evolution of Marilyn Manson, all choreographed over a spiral hole, referencing both the "Rabbit Hole" and the spiral heart of EAT ME, DRINK ME. Manson's one eye (with contact lens representing the Alchemical symbol for the sun) is a clickable link which lead to a featured countdown of five days. Incidentally, the colouring and design of the madness spiral bears resemblance to animations featured in Hitchcock's Vertigo. Vertigo as a concept could be mirrored in the phrase "The High End Of Low".

25.12.2009 6AM CHRISTMAS MORNING

PROVIDER MODULE was launched in its entirety, 6AM PST American time.
