There's speculation on the internet that the "mOBSCENE" single will be released a month before "GAOG", which would mean it's out on April 13. Since speculation doesn't mean shit to me unless the artist verifies it (and in some cases, not even when the artist verifies it!), please verify it! Will there be any other album tracks on the single, or have you recorded b-side tracks for the singles? Please tell us. I know the suspense is probably amusing to you, but there are a lot of people who have been waiting for this album ever since it was announced that it was to be released in the fall 2002. Throw us a bone. I'm also curious as to why the release date was postponed for 7-8 months. I haven't looked forward to an album like this for many many years - and that's from someone who regularly listens to hundreds of bands from every conceivable genre. Please answer my questions!

Well, the single will have several B-sides. "Mommy Dear," and a few other special ones should be expected. Some remixes. Several new instrumental/spoken word and a few unexpected live from "THE GROTESK BURLESK," bits here and there. We are just finishing, as we speak.

oh well, one last repetition, why not: can you agree with me that 'you can do anything you set your mind to' is just another formulation for the american dream 'from zero to hero'? and do you really believe that first sentence? some suckseed, of course, but there are loads of others. in that way you make abstraction of concepts like 'talent', 'Zeitgeist', 'luck', 'commerce', 'business', ... Still breaking my cranium about that what seems a contradiction to me (MM, americana, ....), MicH.

You can be whatever you want, like a child or a lunatic. If other people agree or not should remain irrelevant to the world you paint for yourself. That is the Golden Age of Grotesque.

Exactly how will Lily be performing? Is she going to do striptease? Are we going to see your pussycat's pussy?

Answered by MM on 03/08/03:

Don't be so naughty and rude. She is a sweet little girl.

With the tracks from GAOG do you as happened with Disposable Teens see any of the singles blowing up and getting onto top of the pops or some such thing? Also when that happens (a song of yours getting into the mainstream) do you value the "fans" that suddenly appear around town in holywood etc tops as much as perhaps someone that has stuck with you through it all. With respect. One of the misunderstood.

I don't create limitations for the people who recieve my imagination. Art is not complete until it is recieved by others and their love or hate becomes part of the creation as well.

I will film the second video (a secret now) in Vienna with Gottfried Helnwein. Lily cannot come to Europe though, but she will wait for my postcards.

A sad Hey. Mon hero, WHY o why do you do this to your fans in the north? Was the last time in Finland so bad that you're not coming back? And not even to Sweden? I have, WE have been waiting for you to come back so bad, And Now, Well, What Can I Say. This is how it goes.

Answered by MM on 03/08/03:

Everyone can calm the fuck down. The tour has not begun and it will not end until I penetrate each and every one of your minds. There is much more to come.

Dear Manson, do you have any idea why most people always give comments on red haired people? Cause I am really getting bored of people that are always giving me not exactly nice names at school? And do you have a tip for me how I can learn to ignore them? Another, last question: are you going to perform in Belgium this year, or is it true that you aren't alowed to perform in our country anymore after you gave a question? I really hope you answer this time, much love from Belgium, Karen

Answered by MM on 03/08/03:

I had red hair for a period and I enjoyed it. Some people are too boring to accept something different I suppose. We will tour more than what has been listed so anyone concerned about us visiting their homeland---Do not be impatient because I want to see you as much as you want to see us. I will tour until I fall over with exhaustion. This is the Golden Age and it will be more than just a few weeks...so everyone relax. I hear your request and I want to be there.
