From JBGray on 03/03/03:

kA0ed here by a friend who didn't want to presume to speak for you - so I think I shall ask here. I was curious about your beliefs, like many other people. What precisely do you believe? (If it can be put into words.) And what do you think about Christians and their God, because I honestly can't place your opinion. You're an enigma to say the least. It's all too easy for us Christians (as defensive as we are) to put you into the same category as Limp Biskit (is that how you spell it?), but you're obviously an artist. Or, at least, a more sophisticated artist than them. And your beliefs look like the product of intelligent consideration rather than indoctrination, which is why I'm driven up the wall trying to understand you - or, more accurately, categorise you. (Let's face it, most people deserve it.) Unfortunately, I'm taking up time from people who seem to need your answers more than me, but I'll ask anyway and hope that my curiosity doesn't kill any other cats. And so, one more! All this stemmed from a discussion of one of your songs (which I heard for the first time - "I Don't Like the Drugs(...),' I think it was called) and what it meant - boy, do interpretations of these things sound square? I couldn't decide, my friend contends you were talking about absolution, though I thought it was to do with 'drugs' controlling society like 'God' did in the past - or was pro-liberty. Undecided. And although I guess you won't be able/inclined to put it straight, I won't get anywhere without asking. So are we both wrong, is one of us spectacularly right, or are we both nutters for thinking we can work it out? (Or, are we both pretty sad for caring?) Anyway, I think that's enough. If you're reading this, it's nice of you to read this far down. If you just scrolled here, shame on you, you mean man, and I hope Drugs have mercy on your down-scrolling, glance-overing soul. - Jordan

No interpretation is wrong. That is the ways music goes.

From gundhalinu on 03/03/03:

I know from your various journal postings that you enjoy a lot of the same authors' work as I do (such as Vonnegut and Huxley), but I'm curious as to what you think of others. *Anne Rice *Mark Twain *C.S. Lewis *Joan D. Vinge *Neil Gaiman *Terry Pratchett There are many other authors I'd love to talk with you about, but this is a one-way ticket and the clock is ticking. Screw the clock. Time is mine. What do you love most to read?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

Artaud. Lewis C. and his Alice. Dali, Ernst, Brecht. George Carlin!

With the german influnce on the new album are you considering touring with a german band E.g Alec Empire,Rammstein

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

The album's influences are equally French, American, German, Russian and Swiss. I believe Rammstein is making a remix of the mOBSCENE, however. Should be great.

"You can't always get what you want... But if you try sometimes, you just might find that you get what you need..." Mr. Manson, I just want to see that you hear me calling out to you.. It means so much.. I keep trying, and get nothing in return.. Yet, I get so much.. I just want a direct hello from you.. Via e-mail, the oracle, or whatever.. With love and respect.. -Skar

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

That song means alot to me, so you hit a nerve. Is that what you want? Get what you need.

When will we get to hear some of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre compositions?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

This tour is my priority and the film was delayed, so I am not sure what I will be able to do. The good news is that the new album will keep you busy for a decade.

How do you feel about your "Fame"?

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

The things I do are most important. Sometimes, the process takes time to complete your true dream.

From phellopian on 03/03/03:

As an artist myself i find it strange that this oracle has been produced. You have been put and you have put yourself on a pedostal which is what an artist does i know but do you find it tedious receiving all these complaints and questions that would just annoy if i was in a similar position. However this is impressive and i do believe that you are the one who does respond to these questions. also i heard that you hate australia and never want to come back. does that mean you wont ever come back and i have to come to you?. Sincerely Demian

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

I really don't see anything as a complaint, and I really love Australia. I am just making the communication pART of the creation.

I dont know if its true but I read that Dani Filth says that you are just a "Fake"! I can not believe that! Dani is a Fake! You are forever the best! Marilyn Manson is bigger than Satan!

Answered by MM on 03/04/03:

People say my name...what comes before or after is irrelevant. I am a force that changes what surrounds me. I honestly don't know or care who this person is, and I have no reason to prove what I am to anyone.
