Question: Who are the Mechanical Animals?

They are people who blindly follow and believe whatever is popular.

They do not care about the rest of humanity.

They only care about themself.

They easily lose control of themself.

They are not aware of their surroundings. They don't think.

They waste numerous hours sitting hypnotized in front of their television.

They are controlled by addiction. Drug, alcohol, sex & porn addiction.

They'll never have any impact on the world. They'll never be anything at all. No important goals.

They hide themselves from seeing "reality" so they can live in their make-believe smiley face world.

They think screwing is a talent. It's like their brains are full of cum.

They are Mechanical Animals. Controlled by popularity and destroyed by addiction.

Any human you see as being "Blind to Reality" is a Mechanical Animal.

The guests on the Jerry Springer Show are exactly who we are talking about.

Non-Thinking Humans who lack Understanding and keep making bad decisions.

He is NOT Jesus Christ But he is against World Corruption and Human Stupidity.

Someone had to show the world what it has become.

A world full of murder, drugs, superstars, gossip, power, suicide, war & sex crimes.

To be able to speak against world corruption..................... He had to become it .

For us to clearly understand what is destroying the human race, we must see the truth about the world. Someone had to go this far..... Marilyn Manson

-Being Sober- Raygun Magazine - November 1998

MM:"I think there's too many people. What always saddens me, and this always happens to a lot of my friends, is that they can't have a balance. I'll meet people that are completely sober, people that are completely fucked up. No one can be right in the middle. And that's how I always am. I'm just going up the middle. I can be completely fucked up for weeks on end and be completely sober for the next two weeks. And not have to choose between the two. I'm not going to label myself as one or the other."

-Boy George- Raygun Magazine - November 1998

MM:"I met Boy George. My mom loves Boy George. My mom writes him love letters. He gave my mom his address and she won't stop obsessing about him. She doesn't think he's gay. She thinks she's got a shot at it."

-Rocky Horror Picture Show- Raygun Magazine - November 1998

MM:"Tim Curry, a hot number. I would have liked him to shave his armpits though. I'm not a big on them. I shave mine. I can't even look at myself with armpit hair. Disgusting."

-Dope Show Video- FHM Magazine - November 1998

MM:"While I was making the video for out latest single, The Dope Show. I was wearing an outfit that I couldn't take off myself, and I had to have someone help me take a shit. It was a guy, of course. A woman should never see you shit."

-Pepsi or Coke- FHM Magazine - November 1998

MM:"I don't drink Pepsi. I hate the way it represents the next generation of smiling people. Now coke, it even sounds like a narcotic. Plus, it has fascist coloring. You really have to bow to Coca-Cola."

-Art Without Pain- Orkus Magazine - October 98

MM:"You can't make art without pain. Without sex, dope, confusion or whatever. You can't grasp good music just out of air. You must do something for it. You must find yourself in your music. If not, it is just nothing."

-Sex Appeal-

Q: Has your image made you a fanny magnet?

MM:"At various stages of my career it has. Initially I tried to present myself as unattractive and people seemed to find it appealing. Now IÕm evolving into something else and itÕs all part of redefining what beauty is. I donÕt think IÕm conventionally good-looking, but I present myself in a way that, in the long run, results in a lot of blow jobs."

-Stupid People - Cream Magazine Winter 1998

MM:"There are really only two kinds of people in the world. People who like Marilyn Manson- and stupid people."

-The Fans - Norwegian Radio Interview 1998

Q: You want inspire your fans to think for themselves but they actually dress like you.

MM:"Well, I think that is their way of identifying with something because the rest of the world probably shut them out. I also think it is their way of expressing themselves so I don't think it necessarily means that they are following me blindly. I think they are trying to show the parents that they support what I do."

-The Truman Show-

Q: Did you see The Truman Show?

MM:"Really good film. Very American, and probably what America will come to. We're so obsessed with what other people do because we don't do enough in our own lives. I say and live out what a lot of people are afraid of, for example, but my messages has always been that anyone can do it. My sheer willpower makes me a star."

-America's Monster - Time Out Magazine April 8, 1998

MM:"It's strange, because all my life I had my own ideas as to what monsters were, in terms of people. My grandfather was, in the perception of my family, a depraved pervert who was too scary to love. But as I got older, I realized that that's how America looks at me. So for the first time in that moment I related to him and wished, in some ways, that I could've talked to him. But he's dead now."

-The Manson Attitude - Marilyn Manson

MM:"I don't want to view myself as some sort of taste maker.This isn't an act. This is me! I think that much of what I've done of the last few years has been grossly misinterpreted by those who can't get past the superficial aspects of the presentation. I want to at least hope there are some people out there that understand what this is all about."

-President Manson - Pulse Magazine October 1998

MM:"You should have to pass an IQ test before you breed. You have to take a driving test to operate vehicles and an SAT test to get into college. So why don't you have to take some sort of test before you give birth to children? When I become president, that's the first rule I will institute."

-Unofficial Manson sites-

Q: Do you ever look at the unofficial websites for Marilyn Manson?"

MM:"I do, and there's a lot of them that I appreciate. One of the strongest ones, that I think, interprets a lot of the things that I say very accurately iswww.angelmanson.com I think that they're all great. I think that they all have different strengths, obviously, and different weaknesses. And I think that they're all very important. The purpose of my website is so that we can have direct communication with each other."

-Being Blamed-

Q: Does it bother you when you're blamed for kids committing suicide?"

MM:"It bothers me that someone could grossly misinterpret something enough to kill themselves. But I don't think that anything I've ever said would encourage that. I think that everything I've ever said has been a fight for life, has been me struggling to keep my head above water. I think that I've always discouraged weakness. I think I've always discouraged pitiful escapes like suicide, regardless of how many times I myself and everyone around me has considered thoughts like that."

-Billy Zane - Official Website Interview September 9, 1998

MM:"Billy Zane is someone that I met and is a fellow artist, and sometimes we work together, painting, however pretentious that might sound. It was really quite simple, though. We would just spend time together, hanging out, listening to music, or painting. We became friends. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Hollywood. And I think he's a cool actor. I didn't really like the movie Titanic, but I thought he played a good asshole, and I appreciate that because I often play a good asshole myself."

-New Fans - Official Website Interview September 9, 1998

MM:"So I think, as long as what you create is true to what you are, the more people that hear it can only make it better. And I think it's important that fans don't judge new fans, because everybody hears something for the first time. A fan that's been around since Antichrist Superstar shouldn't have the attitude that someone who heard "The Dope Show" isn't as cool as them, or isn't as dedicated as them, because maybe they didn't hear Portrait of an American Family. By judging other people, it's everything that we stand against. We're trying to say, "Let's break down these barriers. Let's make our own standards." We don't want to judge each other. We have to stick together. I think the more people that hear it, the more of us there are, and the more power that gives all of us."

-The Band's concept - Huh Magazine October 1996

MM:"The whole concept of this band is to present the ugly truth about society - warts and all and let the chips fall where they may."

-What is Man's greatest flaw? - America Online Interview

MM:"His inability to acknowledge and control his animal instincts."

-How is Marilyn Manson gonna make the world a better place? - Guitar World Magazine

MM:"It's something people are gonna have to do for themselves. I'm just gonna make them want it. Everybody has the ability. Every man and woman is a star. It just takes the time to realize they need the personal strength to acknowledge what they are, and I'm just trying to wake that up in everybody."

-Raising your Children - RIP Magazine February 1995

MM:"The message that I'm sending out to them is raise your kids better or I'll be raising them for you."

-Corrupting Youth - Huh Magazine October 1996

MM:"Parents and legislators love to blame people like us for corrupting the youth of this country, but the kids were corrupted long before we ever got to them."

-Is Marilyn Manson a Racist? - Guitar World Magazine

MM:"It's beyond fascism and it's beyond racism and sexism. If you were to say "I like only white people." There's a bunch of white people that suck and make it under the fence and they get a free ride. So I couldn't possibly like only white people. I judge people on their intelligence and on their personality. I think the only thing that counts in the world is what you can contribute to society. That's why in a perfect world, America would be run by artists, musicians, writers, and people of that nature because these are the people that make the world worth living."

-On America - Metal Hammer Magazine

MM:"I'm everything they're afraid of. Everything they hate. Everything they try and hide, and a lot more besides, I speak my mind and show people what's out there in reality. They're using me as a boogyman, but I'm reflecting it all back like a mirror."

-Teen Suicide - Kerrang Magazine December 14, 1996

Q: How would you react if some kid did something tragically stupid as a direct result of his exposure to a Marilyn Manson album or concert?

MM:"I'd feel like they'd proven my point by mis-perceiving me. If somebody were to kill themselves or somebody else, that would just go to show how ignorant people were raised. You know. If they had to use a rock song as an excuse to not go on living, it's pretty weak. I'm creating music, and I'm saying what I experience and what's on my mind. How somebody relates to it is purely up to them. If people want to be like me then they should be themselves because ultimately that's what I'm doing."

-About the Internet - SLC "F" Magazine

MM:"I'm not really into the internet, it just seems to be a gossip column for people who have nothing else to do with their lives, but I'm sure they can turn it into something good eventually."

-Would you like to have a family someday?-Marilyn Manson

MM:"I like the idea. I don't know if it's something that could come true or work out possibly. I don't know if I would want to bring a kid into the world, but I would like the opportunity to be a father."

-Smoking - Underscope Magazine

MM:"I don't believe in cigarettes, in fact when people smoke, I can't hear what they're saying. I've fine tuned myself to shut out the words of smokers. So I miss out on a lot of conversations."

-Killing - America Online Interview

MM:"I don't advocate killing, but killing is killing. Except I don't believe that what Charles Manson did is any worse than what my dad did in Vietnam. At least Manson had a reason."

-Do you want to become innocent again? - Guitar School Magazine

MM:"That's what 'Smells Like Children' was about. It was a metaphor for wanting to be a kid again, and wishing that I hadn't been exposed to all the things I have been exposed to, so that I once again could be pure."

-The World - Guitar School Magazine

MM:"The world doesn't revolve around the sun, it revolves around a giant cock. That is what the world is about. It's about sex. Anybody who doesn't want to realize this is fooling themselves. People are bored because they've done everything they can do. So now the fear of death is the only thing that gets them excited. That's why some people have made me into some type of sex symbol. I'm death on wheels the way I look."

-Jeans - Kerrang Magazine November 1996

MM:"The most outrageous thing I could imagine ever doing is putting on a pair of jeans and going to the shopping mall for my lunch. That would be pretty gross."

-Human Shit - Kerrang Magazine December 14, 1996

MM:"I've never smoked human shit, but I'm willing to try."

-What scares you? - September 24, 1994

MM:"Probably myself. The fear of losing control of myself. That's probably my biggest fear. I hate weak people. I always try to be in control of my life. I think my biggest fear is being weak."

-Jerry Maguire - NME Student Guide September 27, 1997

MM:"I wouldn't have any porno films, but I would have a copy of Jerry Maguire. I think it's essential for any video collection. It's against everything I stand for, but I love that movie in a strange, backwards way."

-What's the closest you've ever been to death?- Vox Magazine October 1997

MM:"I don't drive a vehicle anymore, but on one of the very last times I did so I was going to visit a friend and I was carrying with me a small snake, and the car burst into flames, and the brakes didn't work, and I had to pull off onto the side of the road. So it all ended up with me standing on the side of the road, holding a snake, and my car was on fire."

-Do you favour a particular brand of cosmetics?-Vox Magazine October 1997

MM:"I usually use Mac cosmetics. It's a brand favored by all the major supermodels."

-What is your proudest sporting achievement?- Vox Magazine October 1997

MM:"I'm most proud of not liking sports. That would be my proudest achievement, because America is so wrapped up in sports and sports figures. But I don't believe in them, and when I see it I just pretend like it doesn't exist."

-Charles Manson- Kerrang Magazine September 20, 1997

MM:"I think Charles Manson had a lot of intelligent ways of looking at things. Maybe he went wrong at some point and expressed himself in the wrong way, but I think he started off on the right track. Everybody becomes a product of their own personal likes and dislikes. Someone like Hitler disliked his father, so he wanted to take it out on an entire race of people. Once you start being controlled by your own personal feelings, that's when you could become an evil person. But I've tried my hardest to stay true to what I think. I mean, when I was growing up I didn't like my dad and he was a furniture salesman, but I don't want to go out and kill all furniture salesmen. I just want to be a better person, and I want other people to be better people. I want people to be strong. I'm sick of living with weak people. But with great power comes responsibility. If you're going to have the power to control other people, then you have to be responsible and act accordingly. For instance, if you had the power to read someone's mind, you'd have to deal with what you see intelligently."

-Is Marilyn Manson a cartoon?- RIP Magazine February 1995

MM: I think the entire world is a badly drawn cartoon and we happen to be the only real characters walking around in it."

-Do you vote?- Penthouse Magazine May 1997

MM:"No, I didn't vote. The only way I'd vote was if I was running. People could spend more valuable time buying rock albums, because it's obvious that music is more powerful than politics, or else the President wouldn't have to go on MTV to address anyone."

-Do you ever watch wrestling?- Penthouse Magazine May 1997

MM:"No, I do like the aspect that there's some fake violence and the guys are wearing makeup and they all walk around in underwear. It's very homoerotic, but I don't watch it because it's a sport. That, for me, would be a sin, to watch sports."

-Prayers - Penthouse Magazine May 1997

Q: Did you say your prayers when you were a little kid?

MM:"Up to a certain point, but I always felt embarrased, like someone else was listening besides God. I was even told to not let the devil know you're afraid, because he can hear your prayers also. That scared and excited me at the same time."

-Rock N Roll- Kerrang Magazine May 24, 1997

Q: The Manic Street Preachers once had a T-shirt bearing the slogan "all Rock N Roll is Homosexual." Do you agree?

MM:"It's part of finding yourself, when you can identify with an idol and find someone you can believe in. It goes beyond sexuality, it's something you feel in your heart rather than your crotch. When I was a kid, I didn't have sexual attractions to bands but I wanted to be with them all the time."

-Trusting Others - Kerrang Magazine May 24, 1997

Q: Do you like the idea of finding a significant other?

MM:"Yeah, there's a lot of worth to that idea. It's great if you can find someone to share your problems and the things you care about. It's good to find someone you can trust, but that's hard. I don't trust myself, so I find it hard to trust others."

-On America - Alternative Press April 1996

MM:"I think our band is simply America at its truest. Caffeine, sugar, violence, drugs--these are all the things we were raised on. And as things start to get more and more out of hand in America, everyone's trying to take it all back and give you Nutrasweet and PG-13 and safe sex, but how can they take it away and try to start over? It's like we're listening to a cassette tape of the end of the world. I just want to fast forward it and turn it up louder."

-Scapegoat - Alternative Press April 1996

MM:"People love to scapegoat and shove the responsibility off on somebody else. Parents are always blaming heavy metal and horror movies for teen suicide, but it's the deprivation of things that the kids love that drives them to these desperate means, I think. It's not in the music, it always starts in the family. And anyway, I've always said if more people killed themselves over heavy metal that's fine, too. It's just less stupid people in the world."

-Confusing America - Alternative Press April 1996

MM:"Don't get me wrong, because I love paradoxes, but America's so confusing. Capitalism tells you if you work hard enough you'll be better than the next guy, but everyone's created equal. So what's it gonna be? And everyone's so down on child pornography, but then the big thing, just a year ago, was the waif model, who looked like a 14-year-old, flat-chested and skinny, dressed like a schoolgirl. I mean, they send out so many mixed messages it's no wonder there's Ted Bundys and Jeffrey Dahmers - they don't know what else to do. It's no wonder everyone wants to kill themselves and kill everyone else."

-Basic Good Person - Politically Incorrect August 13, 1997

MM:"I have basic principles that kind of exist in all religions, even Christianity. The fundamentals. You know, you don't kill people. A basic good person. I'm not a Minister of anything. I read both Bibles. I read the Christian Bible too."

-Burden of Originality - Metal Edge Magazine

MM:"The burden of Originality is one that most people don't want to accept. They'd rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they're suppose to like, what they're suppose to buy, and what they're suppose to laugh at. You have Beavis and Butthead telling you what music you're allowed to like and not like, and you've got sitcoms that have canned laughter that lets you know when to laugh if you're too stupid to know when the joke is. People are too lazy and too stupid to think for themselves because America has raised them like that."

-Love and Hate - Metal Edge Magazine

MM:"The opposite of love is apathy, and hate is really the same as love. If you're so consumed by hatred for someone, you might as well be loving them, because you're thinking about them for the same amount of time."

-Flat World - Raygun Magazine Dec/January 1998

MM:"Reality is just what's popular. At one point, the world was flat, and we were all convinced of that, because that was what was popular. Right now, in America, everyone is convinced that this is One Nation Under God. Its on the Dollar Bill. And there's been so many people that tried to crack that open. An Antichrist is someone who is just fighting for man. Even in the Bible, the word Antichrist never really defined some villain who was going to come at the end of the world and destroy everyone. The word was used to describe someone who was opposed to Jesus in his day. It was a collective Disbelief in God."
