I know you really hated the last time you came to Mexico, are you planning to come back some day?

Answered by MM on 05/22/03:

I had a great time in Mexico. The audience was amazing. We will return on this album.

you seem to have a cockier-than-usual smerk this time around.as if you've touched upon something this dying world could never begin to fathom.can you offer any insight as to events or situations which brought you to this disembled reconstruction?what took place that lead you to the breaking point and making this tape that has become a brilliant work of art?

Answered by MM on 05/21/03:

Nothing tastes better than the embarrassment of those so sure that you would fail. Sorry, the fans helped me prove everyone wrong. We are all at number one today, so let's laugh at the jealous ones

When the Grotesk Burlesk begins travelling abroad, will there be a dresscode? Will attendees be encouraged to bring along anything? I cannot wait to see Doll-Dagga-Buzz-Buzz-Ziggity-Zag live...

Answered by MM on 05/21/03:

The atmosphere requires and inpires. I make no rules. I make a place, so put on your best face.

who made the chorus girls' costumes in the 'M-obscene' video? that's all....SadieSinxx

Answered by MM on 05/21/03:

They were designed by Dita and myself. We took our inspiration from Busby Berkeley, U.S.O. shows, WW2 Berlin and Gottfried Helnwein's "Macbeth."

What with the revelation and all it entails, I suppose we won't be hearing from you much anymore. How long then, will this Oracle sit pretending to orate?

Answered by MM on 05/21/03:

Ask the right questions and you will get the right answers.

MR MANSON THIS IS URGENT. YOUR REPLY WILL KEEP SOMEONE FROM COMMITTING SUICIDE. My closest friend lives in a dictatorial household. His parents are assholes; they don't let him listen to music, especially yours, and they do not let him have an opinion about anything. If he questions something, or tries to voice his thoughts on something he gets hit. He gets dragged to church almost every day..he's suicidal and the only thing keeping him alive was you and your music. You are God to him. So please, reply with your opinion on the matter; it would mean so much to him.

Answered by MM on 03/28/03:

I can't save your friend, only he can. I can say that I've been there before...we all go through this in one way or another. Don't bottle it up and don't lash out. Make something great of yourself and fuck those who don't believe in you. They will be the first phone calls you can tell to "TAKE A MESSAGE, I'M BUSY." mr. ryan--If they hit him, call the cops...let him stay with you. But most of all don't let them win. Tell him this-----You are better than them, walk away. There is too much ahead of you to cower.

I didn't think to ask this before, but what kind of car was that in your music video "Tainted Love" ??? I never thought to actually pay attention to those little details before, because the music you make is so kick-ass I dont pay any attention to anything but the music... Oh yeah... I was also wondering... Who got to keep that car? Peace....

Answered by MM on 03/28/03:

It was a Lincoln from1969 and I kept it for a bit. One day I even drove all by myself and jumped up and down (hydraulics) at the stoplight while I was next to an elderly couple from Florida. A hubcap came off. It is gone now.

what do you think about otto dix and his pictures? i think some of that "morbid" scenes would be suitable for your new videos. correct me if i'm wrong. with love and respect faust from germany

Answered by MM on 03/28/03:

There are some paintings that Helnwein has done for the album that carry the spirit of Otto Dix. I find him very fascinating.

Mr. Manson I just want to tell you that I think you are brilliant and I think that you music is excellent and you and Jessicka from Scarling are my idols and love everything you both do... can you tell me your relationship with her and how the experience was recording some of her old Jack Off Jill albums. Do you like her music? Thank you so much!

Answered by MM on 03/28/03:

I have her new, clear red 7 inch, but I can't seem to locate a phonograph. We are very good friends and I am contributing some (NON-MUSICAL) work to the band, Scarling.
