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.

From Prairie+Nigger on 02/15/03:

hey Manson. It's a safe bet that my faith (read: interest) in you has been altered irreversibly in the period of time since Holy Wood. I was largely disappointed by the album, and I felt to a larger degree mislead but what I perceived as very false advertising on your part. suffice it to say that my interest was mildly rekindled by the Resident Evil score (which was excellent) and the studio clips of John and Skold you posted in Spring 2002. Since then I've witnessed you take steps to extinguish every shred of enthusiasm and excitement I had in the band, both for myself and countless others like me who have/had/ grown weary of the same tired Marilyn Manson formula of vague propaganda, empty promises, and tedious rhetoric. I'm happy to say that some of my hope in you was restored this evening by the video you posted...which was not only revealing and illuminating, but shadowy and mysterious as well. It's that balance between the grotesque and the accessible that I feel has been lacking to this point. In many respects I had the impression that you were acting purely out of self-interest...and as I'm sure you're well aware, such behavior is fatal to the commercial artist. I don't propose that you whore yourself out at every possibile opportunity; ostensibly, most of us are here because we initially found you risque and fringe. But there's a fine line to be drawn between becoming a corporate cum spittoon and developing into a fully self-reflexive monster without any perception or hold on the people who once valued your art, creativity, and brilliance to such an extensive degree. perhaps this all comes off a sour grapes from a disgruntled fan - the old Pete Townshend line of "we're not gonna take it" - but it's become increasingly difficult to follow you through your many persona metamorphoses without the knowledge that you had any real interest in the respect of your fans. thanks to the video you posted tonight, some shred of faith has been restored and I'm hoping I might once again go back to telling people how I believe GAOG will be the best Manson album since ACSS. Obviously if I didn't still admire and respect you deeply, I wouldn't have stuck around for as long as I have. I would be curious to hear your opinions of what I've said since I'm sure it's been echoed by others in some respect at the Oracle in the past week. do you feel as if I've completely misinterpreted your intentions and motives or is this simply a case of the fan not getting exactly what he wants from his "hero" and throwing his arms in the air in disgust?

Answered by MM on 02/15/03:

I make music and art for "fans"...but I myself am a fan. So I care for you all as much as I care about my hard work. Have faith, I will have a brick tied to my foot and I will kick your balls in. I say this with all do respect. I appreciate your honesty. I am not afraid. You will not be either.

I wrote you, but you still haven't answered. maybe your're too busy? I'm a little disappointed, really... Does it take so much time just to write "hello.got your message." or something? (I really hope you read it) maybe I'll be allowed to see you at "rock am ring". that would be the greatest thing in my life, but I don't know if my mother allows it. maybe we see each other *g* I'm the girl with the old manson-shirt and the sad smile 'cause you didn't answer. so, have a nice day, hope your valentinsday was nice.

I saw the video you posted yesterday in your journal, and if this is the sound of GAoG than I should say WOW great work. It is really diffrent But I love it. The Piano parts in the backround are sweet.. the whole combination: agressive and playfully(?) It let me dance around in my room cos it is so energetic. I really hope it is the sound of the GAoG..... thank you !!! BTW. the girl in the Video, is it Dita???

You are composed of the same decaying mass that all other humans ar. How does it make you feel to be in such a higher and worshiped position?

Answered by on 02/14/03:

I'm trying to deal with my surroundings just like every other living creature. Happy Valentine's Day.

So.. You're just another commercial shit. If agree DO NOT answer. It is NOT a provocation. It's the true..fuck nigger faggit.

Answered by MM on 02/14/03:

I am what you spend your time hating. If you don't like people like "us" you should go beat up a homeless person you (and I am sad to say) weak-minded bigot. Too bad you don't have the balls to come from behind your fake name and meet the people you so bravely insult. NOTE: This is to make an example of the cowardly liars that clog up our drains like cum-caked hairballs.
