The Villain Is Back In Town!

Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is officially over as Marilyn Manson´s newest video has been leaked TO-DAY and the song is called "No Reason".

Although it might be a little bit too early to jump to any reviews, furthermore any conclusions, for this we would need to pay your total attention.

First scene opens with the initial sequence of an acclaimed cult film "The Holy Mountain" by Alejandro Jodorowsky, who also happens to be one of Manson´s greatest influences. If you still haven´t seen the 1973 movie, go watch it now! 

Second, you might also check out the canned trailer of "Phantasmagoria:The Visions Of Lewis Carroll" that was leaked last year and it´s available on MM´s site so that means the comparisons are going to be more than obvious and uncomfortable.

Once again, dipped in symbolism, movie references, a new philosophy that will keep your head spinning and thirsty for more. However, due to the nature of this video viewer discretion is advised. Anyone below 18 please leave the room and if you didn´t do it...HOORAY FOR YOU!


Below the "Phantasmagoria" trailer.

So what does the Ponyvillain have to say about this?

About Campaign And Other Famous Campaigns

If you haven´t had the chance to take a look at and analyze the The Campaign Book page you may be missing many things well worth looking at .

The posters of the film of Marilyn Manson Born Villain were distributed by various strategic spots in West Hollywood, his "neighborhood" so to speak. Some sites recognized are the Chateau Marmont, one of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels where many stars gather, as it  is seen in the following picture:

But beyond the places where the image of Manson was distributed  we came to think that may well have had a bit of inspiration in the so-called street art, made popular by some artists like Banksy and Shepard Fairey, just to name a few.

The Art Of Shepard Fairey.

Perhaps you are familiar with the image of political propaganda used unofficially the current President Barack Obama with the legend "HOPE." These illustrations made by Fairey, the U.S. also had a strong influence in the campaign of 2008 that were hailed by major critics consider "the most effective U.S. policy illustration from UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU."

Although the message suffered during the election period several changes in name, as CHANGE, PROGRESS, as official propaganda was not yet won the respect of the newly elected president of the United States in February 2008. The original portrait was acquired by the National Portrait Gallery and is part of its permanent collection since 2009.

But Fairey has won many awards, has risked many times as any street performer and has been applied for many jobs, from album covers to advertising for films such as Walk The Line, with Joaquin Phoenix. Before HOPE became popular from his college years in Rhode Island he crafted the OBEY image inspired by the actor Andre The Giant as a stencil using its front face.

Although the combination of the word OBEY, and the image of Andre the Giant do not have a particular meaning, as the artist does have a purpose to cause a strong reaction in the viewer.

Other examples.

Campaign possibly influenced by the art of Shepard Fairey? 

Well the saying goes, "most imitated never equaled," and while comparisons are odious there are some curious similarities between this advertising campaign with street art Manson in the end it borders on vandalism being placed on other sites that are beyond the context of his music.

Original Image.

The photo included, clearly a group of nuns, which appear to be identical rifles are "ready" for battle. If we go back in time Manson had presented similar images in the album artwork of Hollywood: In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death.

So far we ignore the meaning behind these graphics of MM , although they have every intention of hitting like a tidal wave, mission accomplished. 

They may continue to represent the ideals that have been followed to the letter throughout his career, from the attack on Christianity by the search for new ideals, as it is and as it has been mentioning in the theme of your page CMYK: Christianity  Manufactures Yesterday's Killers.

Here is another graphic with a common element of Shepard Fairey that has the primary intention of the anti-consumerism message, and peace above all things.

Second point of comparison: the image of the poster in front of Born Villain.

Fairey´s OBEY.

Other Comparisons.

It´s a common resource that the spectator or the surroundings interact with street art most of the time in order to place it in some sort of concept.

In the words of Manson, Shia La Beouf's henchman insisted in spreading this image anywhere regardless border on vandalism and this time it was Manson's face.

But going back to the days of Nazi propaganda we find an example close to these concepts.

It´s true that many times the rocker has been considered something like the icon will shock rock, but is this a  colossal effort to redefine his image had already been heavily criticized in 2009 after allegedly failed The High End of Low?

A Marquee.

Guess where this came from. I told you we´d stay up all night to snatch this from Steve Coy´s pics.

The Villain Is Home...

Cool, the surprises keep coming as Manson just moments ago linked the image of Born Villain, replacing the extract from the video I Am Among No One so stay very still! 

The video for I Am Among No One can still be located in the Art section.The amazing thing is that the image has better resolution and good size to start toying with it.

This Note Is Truly Wicked!

Muahaha! Guess what? The origin of these mystery Manson images belong to a brand new short film entitled "Born Villain" starring Marilyn Manson directed by "that Transformers kid", Shia LeBoeuf and it is said to contain parts of the new album and the creative process.

The full note came from this interview with Chris Vrenna, another mastermind in MM´s troops:

But, oh sorry kiddies, you´ll have to hold on to your hats for the new album until 2012, or so they say, however keep your eye peeled on these websites:

Thanks to my Latin American buddy David at:
