Sen. Jeff Sessions Blamed Culture, Not Guns, For Columbine Massacre
Huffington Post - 22 days
WASHINGTON ― During the Obama presidency, conservative politicians came up with a standard response to any mass shooting. Within hours of a tragedy, whether in a school at Newtown or a church in South Carolina, Republicans would issue statements saying they were praying for victims. It became so commonplace that last year, Slate published “Thoughts & Prayers: The Game” that allowed readers to offer up thoughts and prayers ― and fake empathy ― after a mass shooting. To talk about gun-control measures that may prevent mass shootings is to risk angering the National Rifle Association. To address the complex role that a mental health crisis plays in many mass shootings would require a meaningful examination of our underfunded and poorly resourced mental health system. To send thoughts and prayers is an easy way to express sympathy for victims and their families without actually having to do anything. By the end of President Barack Obama’s term, thoughts and prayers felt like a cop ...

Marilyn Manson's New Video Shows Beheading Of Man Who Resembles Donald Trump
Huffington Post - 4 months
Artist, professional provocateur and lunchbox enthusiast Marilyn Manson shared a music video clip for his new song “SAY10” that may just Trump your nightmares tonight. The graphic, NSFW clip features Manson ripping pages out of the Bible, holding a bloody knife, and during a lightning-fast montage, beheading a man who resembles Donald Trump: The man who is decapitated wears a suit, a red tie and has a blonde hair similar to the Republican presidential candidate’s hue. Manson, who told The Daily Beast earlier this year that he will not vote in this year’s election because he refuses to choose between “cat shit and dog shit,” is equally elusive about whether or not the man in the video is indeed intended to represent Trump. He told The Daily Beast in an article published today that the video is open to interpretation. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that are ...

Alt Rockers Echo Black Are Back With A Hard-Driving Love Song
Huffington Post - 4 months
Danny Blu, who is the lead singer of the New York-based alternative rock band Echo Black, was happily in the throes of a new relationship when he sat down to write his latest song.  The result is “Disappear,” a mid-tempo ballad with heartfelt lyrics that perfectly contrast against dramatic guitar shreds. The Huffington Post got an exclusive listen to the track, which can be heard below.   “Can you love me for tonight, so I can love you for forever? And if you bring me back to life, then it won’t matter if there’s heaven,” Blu sings in the track. The singer-songwriter told HuffPost that “Disappear” reflects his own initial skepticism about love, eventually giving way to the realization that his relationship with his current boyfriend was “different, and real” compared to previous romances.  “I was looking for the right way to describe our relationship and how it came to be. So it means a lot to me,” he said. “I was definitely one of those people who had sort ...

Is Marriage The Kiss Of Death?
Huffington Post - 5 months
Now, before I begin, I can't use personal experience with this because I have never been married myself. I'm engaged; not to be married, as previously written. With my only experience of all things matrimonial being 2 cancelled weddings and many a time resuming the role of drunken wedding guest. Following the news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, affectionately referred to as Brangelina, had called it quits, it got me thinking. Is there really a point to marriage? Does it put pressure on a couple? Is it something of an antiquated deed? Or, is it a commitment that solidifies a relationship? A unification that enables couples to feel more settled and content perhaps. We're all well versed with how Brad and Angelina got together, back in 2004/2005, you only had to pick up a newspaper or glossy magazine to see them splashed across the pages, complete with photos of the betrayed, estranged wife Jennifer Aniston. They spent over 10 years together, had 6 children and were purpo ...

Imogen Poots Is 'Very, Very Happy' In Her Career, So It's Time You Know Her Name
Huffington Post - 10 months
For Imogen Poots, 2015 marked a new beginning. Across the better part of a decade, she'd scored noteworthy roles in movies like "28 Weeks Later," "Solitary Man" and "Jane Eyre" without ever quite transcending emerging-actress limbo. But as the 2010s inch forward, Poots has always been on the cusp of breaking through -- with the vampire horror-comedy "Fight Night," the rowdy bromance "That Awkward Moment" and the noisy Aaron Paul racing vehicle "Need for Speed."  But it's the movies that have struggled to secure much shelf life where Poots has found her true calling. She played Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener's daughter in 2011's "A Late Quartet" before starring as Linda Keith, one of Jimi Hendrix's lovers, in the under-appreciated 2013 biopic "Jimi: All Is By My Side" and as an earnest call-girl-turned-Broadway-hopeful in Peter Bogdanovich's 2015 screwball comedy "She's Funny That Way." This year alone, she's appeared in the Sundance drama "Frank & Lola," Terrence ...

Matt Adcock at the cinema: John Wick review
Hemel Today - almost 2 years
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is a retired assassin, the best in the business (once killed three people in a bar with just a pencil they say). Wick said goodbye to the violent past when his wife, Helen (Bridget Moynahan), came into his life.But when she tragically dies his world is shaken. Then punk bad guy Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) kills Wick’s cute dog and steals his beloved muscle car. That’s pretty much all the background you need as from that point on John Wick becomes a rip-roaringly brutal, utterly stylish revenge-’em-up which sees Reeves kicking huge amounts of ass, in a way that he hasn’t since The Matrix. The action scenes are exceptionally well choreographed. Enemies are dispatched with guns, knives, fists, cars and grenades all mixed into a ballet of grin-inducing carnage. Mob boss Viggo (Michael Nyqvist), father of Iosef and former employer of Wick, tries his best to stop the unstoppable assassin by putting a price on his head and unleashing an army of henchmen, backed ...

    Age 47
    Manson appeared in the final season of the TV series Sons of Anarchy portraying Ron Tully, a white supremacist. In January 2016, it was announced that Manson would be joining the cast for season 3 of WGN's Salem.
    More Details Hide Details Manson will play Thomas Dinley, "the go-to man in Salem, from a shave and a haircut to being leeched, bled, sliced open or sewn up".
  • 2015
    Age 46
    On August 15, 2015, Manson had New Orleans brass ensemble the Soul Rebels perform "Beautiful People" with him live in Japan at the Summer Sonic Music Festival.
    More Details Hide Details Shooter Jennings' album "Countach (For Giorgio)" features Manson performing guest vocals on a cover of David Bowie's "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)". The album was released on February 26, 2016.
    Manson was born in Canton, Ohio. He is the only son of Barbara Jo (née Wyer) and Hugh Angus Warner. Manson is of German and English descent. In an August 12, 2015 interview, Manson claimed that his Appalachian family also has "Sioux" heritage.
    More Details Hide Details In his autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, he detailed his grandfather's sexual fetishes, including bestiality and sadomasochism. As a child, he attended his mother's Episcopal church, though his father was a Catholic. Warner attended Heritage Christian School from first grade to tenth grade. In that school, they tried to show children what music they were not supposed to listen to; Warner then fell in love with "what he wasn't supposed to do."
    In February 2015, Manson told Beat magazine that he is "newly single".
    More Details Hide Details Manson is a self-identified fan of Anton Lavey, an honorary priest in the Church of Satan and also an advocate of the writings of Aleister Crowley and Friedrich Nietzsche saying "I also like Nietzsche and Crowley," and quoting Crowley throughout his autobiography including the Thelemic anthem, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." Crowley's esoteric subject matter forms an important leitmotif in much of Manson's early work. He has been described as "the highest profile Satanist ever" with strong anti-Christian views and social Darwinist leanings. The name Marilyn Manson was formed by juxtaposing the names of two opposing American pop cultural icons – Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. Monroe, an actress, was one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and continues to be a major icon over 50 years after. Manson, a cult leader, was responsible for the murder of actress Sharon Tate, as well as several others. He is currently serving a life sentence on murder and conspiracy charges.

  • 2004
    Age 35
    On September 14–15, 2004, Manson held a second exhibition on the first night in Paris and the second in Berlin.
    More Details Hide Details The show was named 'Trismegistus' which was also the title of the center piece of the exhibit – a large, three-headed Christ painted onto an antique wood panel from a portable embalmers table. Manson named his self-proclaimed art movement Celebritarian Corporation. He has coined a slogan for the movement: “We will sell our shadow to those who stand within it.” In 2005 he said that the Celebritarian Corporation has been "incubating for seven years" which if correct would indicate that Celebritarian Corporation, in some form, started in 1998. Celebritarian Corporation is also the namesake of an art gallery owned by Manson, called the Celebritarian Corporation Gallery of Fine Art in Los Angeles for which his third exhibition was the inaugural show. From April 2–17, 2007, his recent works were on show at the Space 39 Modern & Contemporary art gallery in Fort Myers, Florida. Forty pieces from this show traveled to Germany's Gallery Brigitte Schenk in Cologne to be publicly exhibited from June 28 – July 28, 2007. Manson was refused admittance to Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral), when he was in the city to attend the opening night. This was, according to Manson, because of his makeup.
    Manson stated in a 2004 interview with i-D magazine to have begun his career as a watercolor painter in 1999 when he made five-minute concept pieces and sold them to drug dealers.
    More Details Hide Details On September 13–14, 2002, his first show, The Golden Age of Grotesque, was held at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions Centre. Art in Americas Max Henry likened them to the works of a "psychiatric patient given materials to use as therapy" and said his work would never be taken seriously in a fine art context, writing that the value was "in their celebrity, not the work".
    Manson proposed on March 22, 2004 and gave her a 1930s 7-carat European round-cut diamond engagement ring.

  • 2001
    Age 32
    In a civil suit presented by Oakland County, Michigan, Manson was charged with sexual misconduct against another security officer, Joshua Keasler, during a concert in Clarkston, Michigan, on July 30, 2001.
    More Details Hide Details Oakland County originally filed assault and battery and criminal sexual misconduct charges, but the judge reduced the latter charge to misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Manson pleaded no contest to the reduced charges, paid a fine, and later settled the lawsuit under undisclosed terms. On April 3, 2002, Maria St. John filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court accusing Manson of providing her adult daughter, Jennifer Syme, with cocaine and instructing her to drive while under the influence. After attending a party at Manson's house, Syme was given a lift home; Manson claims she was taken home by a designated driver. After she got home she got behind the wheel of her own vehicle and was killed when she crashed it into three parked cars. Manson is reported to have said there were no alcohol or other drugs at the party. St. John's lawyer asked "if there were no drinks, no drugs, why would she need a designated driver?" The suit alleged Syme was returning to the party at Manson's request. The case was dismissed on May 29, 2003.
    Manson and Dita Von Teese first met when he asked her to dance in one of his music videos. Though she was unable to, the two kept in contact. On his 32nd birthday, in 2001, she arrived with a bottle of absinthe and they became a couple.

    More Details Hide Details He also appeared on HBO's Eastbound & Down, of which Manson is reportedly a longtime fan, and had lobbied to appear on for years; and ABC's Once Upon a Time, for which he will provide the voice of the character "Shadow".

He has appeared in animated form in Clone High and participated in several episodes of the MTV series Celebrity Deathmatch, becoming the show's unofficial champion and mascot; he often performed the voice for his claymated puppet, and contributed the song "Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes" to the soundtrack album. In July 2005, Manson told Rolling Stone that he was shifting his focus from music to filmmaking – "I just don't think the world is worth putting music into right now. I no longer want to make art that other people – particularly record companies – are turning into a product. I just want to make art."

    The records of the United States Patent and Trademark Office show that Warner registered four trademarks of "Marilyn Manson" between 1994 and 1999, protecting "entertainment services", merchandising, and branding.
    More Details Hide Details In September 1996, former bassist Gidget Gein negotiated a settlement with Manson where he would receive in cash, 20 percent of any royalties paid for recordings and for any songs he had a hand in writing and his share of any other royalties or fees the group earned while he was a member. Furthermore, the settlement allowed him to market himself as a former member of Marilyn Manson. This settlement was not honored, however. Former guitarist and founding member Scott Putesky (a.k.a. Daisy Berkowitz) filed a $15 million lawsuit in a Fort Lauderdale court against the singer, the band and the band's attorney (David Codikow) in January 1998 after his forcible departure from the group in the spring of 1996. Berkowitz claimed he was cheated by the band out of "thousands of dollars in royalties, publishing rights, and performance fees." He also filed an attorney malpractice suit against Codikow, alleging that "Codikow represented Warner's interests more than the band's and that he gave Warner disproportionate control over the band's name, recordings, merchandising, and touring proceeds." By October of that year, the suit had been settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.
