Hey Manson, I wanted to know if you have heard of Chuck Palahniuk. I have read all of his books, and for some reason, some of them remind me of you. My friend said that you did the voice on the tape of the book "Survivor". Is that true?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

Here's a semi-answer. Yes we are friends I guess. I've known him before Survivor and have had a few good times together. He asked me to do the voice for his book but I haven't done so yet. It's a great story, so I would like it. He also read most of my unreleased book and liked it very much, which was a great compliment.

Do you let other people influence who you are. I mean if you really wanted something, or wanted to do something. Would you be worried about what others would think I mean if you were in school like me. Back when you were a kid. would it matter to you?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

I used to. We are taught that. Whether it is God, Santa Claus, your parents or "the rest of the world" that tv commercials use as a scare tactic to make you buy whatever they have to sell. We all need security, hope, belief. Choose who and what you trust carefully. Don't believe in anyone who doesn't believe in you.

Hello Mr. Manson. As most people are (or are they) that ask you questions or place comments, I am a huge fan. I saw you shortly interviewed in the documentary Bowling for Columbine, nice work. My *kind of stupid* question is, were you worried about answering your questions carefully? Considering it was shown in many places and also people viewing who percieve you wrong. Will have many questions as time goes on, Morgan

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

I just said what I have always been saying. When the interview took place I was more concerned with my life than what people would think of the answers. However, there are no wrong answers. Just different opinions.

Marilyn,I would like to ask you , not as criticism, but just out of curiosity , why do you not watch television? I'm not disagreeing ,I just think that you do probably have a commendable reason and i would like to know it, thank you.

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

I do watch. It is my worst vice. I would rather read or watch films than television programs. But I am born and reared on talk-shows and the newest version of "The Dating Game." Sad, but true. I have broken two remotes this week so I will eventually be stuck on the History Channel or Animal Planet.

how can we reach our goals? and when and how you reach yours? skinnytoy

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

New goals are made before and during the completion of old goals for me. Forward motion is what keeps me alive.

What are you reading right now?? I am sucking my library dry reading anything from Allen Ginsberg to Anais Nin to Tennessee Williams to Neal Stephenson- anything less obvious that you can recommend?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

Webster. He has a dictionary, seriously. Sometimes it's a good read.

meaning-less? why yes, I'm alive. I think I'm alive. The doors open when I go into the store, so I must be a being, a force, an energy or the doors at the supermarket wouldn't open. I'm alive, the film proves that. The light is let into the camera and burnt onto the film. Than during development there I am. A meshing up of chemical colors. I'm visible. The mirrors reflect the energy that is me. If I weren't alive, why is it I hear the hobos in the city asking for change. How is it the cats can sense me as I walk around them. The birds hear me, they know a force is present. I am something, I am somebody. I am a reflection of a reflection from the past, the present, and soon the future. I am Me.

why would you think otherwise?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

If you like it, do it. I only started painting to escape. Make it personal. You don't have to answer to anyone, it's quite beautiful.
