I Am Not Marilyn Manson


I would like to point out here that I am not Marilyn Manson. Yesterday I got a phone call. "Is Br(unintelligible) there?" asked a female voice I did not recognize.

I said, "This is Brad."

Long silence. "Hello?" I said.

"Hello," she replied. More silence. Then, "Are you Marilyn Manson?"

"No," I said, for truly I am not.

More silence. Then, "Do you know his phone number?"

"No," I said, for truly I do not.

"Thank you. Have a nice day," she said, then hung up.

This morning I checked Marilyn Manson out on Wikipedia. I've heard of him, of course. But I'm not really up on his history at all. Except that I know he's from Canton, Ohio, which is a few miles south of where I grew up. The only things there are the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Belden Village Mall, which used to have an OK record store we'd go to sometimes.

Anyway, I found out his real name is Brian Warner. So this girl must have looked up every B. Warner listed in Los Angeles and decided I was Marilyn. I think she called once before. I got a call about a year ago which consisted of two teenage-sounding girls giggling and telling me I was the coolest guy ever.

This may be so. But for the record, I am not Marilyn Manson. OK?

you probably are related to him you know.. there is a definite resemblance but I think he's got you in the looks department.

Yeah? Well, you're sure making a big deal out of denying it!

I disagree, B. Warner.

You are Marilyn Manson. He is Brad Warner. I am MM, I am BW. You both are me.

Is this not zen?

The difference between Marilyn Manson and you is that Manson is enlightened.

.. and better signer.

I think Marilyn and you should have a press conference to dispel this rumor. Followed by a concert by your bands :-)

gniz.. some celebrities are good signers and others just refuse.

gniz said...

Why on god's green earth are people assuming that this anonymous dude (is there one of them or twenty of them) is me, especially when I continue to sign in under my log in and post?

This is Karma at work, I fear.
Well, I've made my bed and so I wont complain.

But i'll say it again. I'm not that anonymous poster, nor am I the anonymous poster answering the other anonymous guy's posts.

Your memory must be getting fuzzy, Warner-san: the only decent record store ever in Canton was Quonset Hut. Bongs upstairs, records downstairs. The way we do it in the 216. Well, did. Who knows. It's been a while since I've been back.

This is just another pathetic attempt by Brad to score more readers. Just because he gets some attention, it doesn't require that he boasts about it.

Sorry for trolling and making irrational presumptions, because frankly Im bored at work. Somebody has to be the jerkoff, right?

Brad,

I am Marilyn Manson. How cool is that?

yours, Marilyn Manson

Prof Wes said...

"No," I said, for truly I am not.

I don't know why, but this really cracked me up!!

gniz said...

That is hysterical, seriously.

And if its actually me writing those posts its even more hysterical because it means i'm officially batshit crazy.

-"the real" Gniz

Lone Wolf said...

LOL. Heather has a point. How about all those past posts where you said I am everyone and everyone is me. I am annoying people, I am George Bush and so on.

Brad you are Marylin Manson.

Zen can be fun!

zogglegrrrl said...

Heather - you rock - great comment!

A man was once discussing logic with Bertrand Russell and told him he couldn't accept that any statement follows from a false premise. He challenged Bertrand Russell to prove that he was the Pope from the premise that 1+1=3. Bertrand Russel thought for a minute and then replied. Because 1+1=3 and 3=2+1, then 1=2. The Pope and I are two, thus the Pope and I are one. Therfore, I am the Pope.

So because "form is emptiness," but "in emptiness there is no form," you are Marilyn Manson.

All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense.

For the record, are you Brad Warner? :)

No words contains only truth, No words contains only lies. Sometimes we must pluck lies from truth like weeds from a garden, other times we must dig through mountains of bullshit to find the smallest pearl of truth.

hey brad, if you don't want to be marilyn manson, can i? i love his pretty hair.

Anonymous said...

Believe it or not, Brad, I've noticed that before, and pointed it out to others. But not to you. I mean, noticed that you were both B. Warners from Ohio who have been into pretty hard music. But I didn't point it out to you. Didn't know how you'd take it.

Good Luck!

PhilBob-SquareHead said...

When I saw M. Manson at a club show in '95, he baited the crowd,
"1,2,3...SPIT ON ME!"
So that must mean I have spat on you Mr. Warner.

Sorry!?.... . . .

This truly made me laugh. I was confused at first why you would even say that, but I got it after you said you were a B.Warner. lmao The comments are equally as silly.

Marilyn Manson is sportsbook not exactly a conformist. From his music — a meat grinder full of electronica, metal and gothic grotesquerie — to his personal traits (because of his nocturnal habits, he was available to bet nfl speak to TIME only after midnight E.T.), he's managed to confound his critics and fans alike. Is he the satanic Pied Piper of angst-ridden teen nihilists? sportsbook Or a sly, self-promoting performance artist? Either way, he's long been a lightning rod for controversy, http://www.enterbet.com only fueled by his sold-out tours and multiplatinum-selling albums.
