METEOR SHOWERS AND LAP DANCE

HELLO ALL

I'm getting ready to watch some meteors tonight and I hope you guys get a chance as well. I have been in the studio everyday writing the new album which is very much guitar driven. Some people think when I say beat-oriented that I mean it won't be heavy, but I assure you it will. Joey from Slipknot has worked on a track with me and I am currently collaborating with Tim Skold (KMFDM). I'd like to sneak everyone a listen soon if you all behave. And by the way, the video for Tainted Love couldn't be any more sarcastic and the "making of" photos are compressed so it squashes the height. So all the concerns about me being fat are silly, just watch the video. And the contrast is misleading, so don't get stressed out that I have a tan either. Sometimes you guys are more brutal than me. I guess I got to love that.

I'm always here but I've been putting my thoughts into the album. So don't think for a minute I forgot you. You are going to love the new record, because it takes no shit from nobody (sic).

Forever,

MM

to the fans

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the seething sarcasm in the video and notice that it was just plain entertaining to those of us who made it.

As I am between records, I really felt the music world needed something a little less serious right now. If you don't get it or like it, that's your call.

The new record will take things to another level, and I can assure it won't be a comical one. I love you guys and I wanted this clip to cheer us all up with the mood we've all been in since 9/11.

I will talk to you soon and I promise a sneak peak of a new song will be on the way if you behave.

MM
