Hello again. Remember me? I asked you for advice a while back and you never responded. I am sending you this message again by the way because my internet service sucks and I'm not sure if you got the last one. I just wanted to let you know that it's OK with me that you didn't respond. I know you get a lot of messages and questions and you probably think I am a total whiner. I just had a distinct feeling that you were the right person to ask for advice on how to deal with the assholes that won't leave me alone becuse of my differences. (Question kept private) But I get the feeling that this is not how you want to be viewed. Am I right? And what would you say to her right now if you could speak to her? Your admirer Always, Summer

I don't eat cereal anymore! That's first. Second, we don't know what was behind her eyes. Let's not jump to conclusions. I would want to see if she was happy. If I can make someone feel---anything---that is a good thing in this world. Kiss from me.

I wrote to you a few weeks ago with a problem that I thought only you could help me with, but you never responded. It's perfectly fine though. I understand that everyone writes to you and there are only so many hours in the day, and you aren't able to answer all of as. All it did was make me realize that I am truely alone in my problems and only I can save me from myself. I guess it's better that way, only I'm the only one who knows me anyways. I still feel emotionally numb. I still can't bring myself to paint. Maybe I'll go back to writing. Hell, who knows, I could be the next Stephen King only better, except for the fact that I'm a lady. I wouldn't want to be Stephen King in that way. So thank you for not answering me before.

Sometimes no answer is an answer. It doesn't mean I'm not listening.

Hi Marilyn, today I saw a magazine, on this cover there was Rose McDowell at the advertisement of "Charmed" for the TV, what do you think about her now?

Answered by MM on 02/26/03:

Try not to watch TV.

Why do you hate Jesus so much? Why do you hate a God who loves you with all that He is?

Answered by MARILYN MANSON on 02/26/03:

I really like Jesus, he is my gardener (no joke). I said hello to him today As far as Christianity goes...you'll have to try harder. I know the song already, "Jesus loves me this I..." It's catchy. I like God on my own terms. I like Jesus in the Bible on my own terms. He was human, he liked whores and criminals. I won't make fun of the Bible, but people can look at that book as blindly as you look at me---for example. Drink my blood? VAMPIRES. DEMONS. MURDER. ANIMAL SACRIFICE. If you preach love, go find some street kid who needs a home and take him/her in. Pay for their food and school. Really help one person. WWJD? Don't be a weekend warrior for Christ. Get your hands dirty, or get off my site. With respect, MM

The smell of the room...the band hanging out with us...the look you gave me when i handed you a dollar bill to sign. Boy was it great! Thanx for the memories. I will cherish them as I get older hoping to relive them again!!!! Here is my queston....For or against the war with Iraq? It seems so many celebs and "pretty people" are againist it and just curious on were you stand on the matter.

Answered by MM on 02/26/03:

I tried to answer this already. I have no comment on politics at this time. I need more to base my opinion on.

Greatest album covers that never were (cf. helnwein.com)? Have you shown us your new album cover yet?

Answered by MM on 02/26/03:

New? Cover? It is too complicated to answer yes or no. I've shown you things and I'll show you more. I'm shrugging and dancing. Now I'm sitting. I'll have to get back to you.

Dear Marilyn, It looks like I'm not the only one feeling a bit sad/lonely lately so I thought I'd share a couple stories on the matter. About a year ago my girlfriend and I found a goldfish in a pet store, a celestial eye goldfish, the kind that have their eyes on the outside of their heads like two little orbs. He was near death because he was missing one of his eyes and couldn't compete for food, so we nutured him and saved him and he was able to reach a full grown state until he passed on due to health and such a tumultuous life up to the point until we rescued him. Blinky had become my best friend for the year I was priveledged enough to know him. But instead of spending my days in sorrow over his death right now I'm creating a several times larger than life drawing of him to celebrate his life instead of his death. Such a significant loss was very remeniscent to me of when my girlfriend and I separated three years ago. I was depressed beyond my ability to express myslf in words, but I was able to express myself. That incident three years ago gave me the "energy" and will enough to express myself in art and that time period in my life marks the first time when I wholeheartedly and hOlistically poured myself out onto paper. A relationship ended for the time being but it began a new chapter in my life. I took the negativity of the situation, concentrated my depression, anger and resentment and put it all into several drawings which I am very proud of. When I hear you talk about transformation and "molting" I sincerely take it to heart because if these and such "tragedies" hadn't happened in my life I wouldn't be who I am today and wouldn't have been given the near ultimatum of either death or art, and needless to say I chose art. The theme of the illusion of coincidence is something I've been able to witness firsthand in the past three years and has given me a new outlook on life. Fate is real but its path and outcome is only as determined as the will of the life its you're weaving. You can either be a victim or a warrior, either lie down and die or charge the enemy until there is no life. If you choose to fight for what you believe in then that's your fate, and it's up to you. So depression can be either a poison or a will to live, it's up to everyone to interpret it as they may.... I know this isn't necessarily a question but if this message is posted I thought it may inpire if not help a lonely person or two and to show you that your words and art have a special place in my heart both by what I see in it and also, through my own experiences, how I'm able to see myself in it...... Sincerely, Nick.
