Brian, some time ago i read an interview in a magazine, i dont remember the name of the magazine. It you stated that as a child you were violated by your neighbor and when you tried to tell your parents or someone your nighbor killed your dog. i find that diturbing, especially since my neighbor went to prison for ten yaers for raping his daughters......anyway i just wondered what kept you from attempting suicide,what was the thought in your head that kept you alive when you felt like giving up. A reply would be appreciated. P.S. I really like Amazing panorama of the endtimes, it makes me what to hit my dad.

Simple. The ability to create. Also leaving behind "Brian" --which really does not make me mad or impress anyone-- and becoming what I was afraid of all along.

Recently I saw you do a cameo in an episode of Clone High... Previous to that, I watched the interview with you in "Bowling for Columbine". In both of the appearances, you seemed to be an intelligent person who seems to be a bit more than the satan worshipper that many people would have me believe (moreso from BFC). My question is this... Do you like the impression that you give across to many people? We were watching BFC a second time just recently and my friend said, "I'll bet MM had a script for that." Do you act the way you do because you like the reactions from people, because you just want to and they can go to hell, or some other reason? Thanks

That's a complex series of questions. I did an interview with Michael Moore for 2 hours and at the time it was not titled "Bowling For Columbine." This was just before I set foot on the stage in Denver, despite hundreds of death threats and protests from every direction. There were 20 or more cops following me around and suggested I should wear a bulletproof vest. I spoke honestly and calmly, despite the hostile environment. No there was not a script and it was more of a conversation than an interview really. It could have been my last but I left my fear at the door. Clone High was recorded about a year ago and it was a song written by the director and I thought it was amusing...my JFK/Lincoln obsession also lured me to be involved. As a boy I loved Saturday morning songs like that and the absurd irony was a contrast to other things I've done. The way anyone acts is always related to what stage they are on (or in) and the theatre itself, has a double. The two create whatever I end up being. I am a Maximalist. People, attitudes, voyeurs, haters and words are all estovers any artist must make use of if he/she wants to heat his house or set the world on fire. I hope I gave you some kindling to let your mind burn beautifully dear one.

Do you have problems with hydrophobia?

Answered by MM on 02/10/03:

If that means "would I save you if you were drowning?" It depends on if I would have to get my favorite suit wet. Sometimes if something is sinking, one should place a foot on its head and gently push it under rather than getting pulled in. I am speaking metaphorically, of course. Anyone you care for and cares for you, would never jump out of the boat I suppose. In literal terms, to answer your question, I often choose other liquids over water but H2O mixes well with absinthe and paint. So...no i don't.

Is the infamous "Mommy Dear" song (I believe it was called "La Petit Mon") ever going to see the light of day? What we heard of it sounded beautiful. I think we'd all like to hear more piano pieces from you. Good stuff.

Manson your very classy i wish i had such style and intelligence.

Answered by MM on 02/10/03:

I'm just being myself and don't assume you are any different. Class is for school though, and intelligence is not as important as how you use it. "MYSELF" is yet to be discovered...but I'm not looking.

Which of the following do you currently have - leprosy, gangrene, gout, constipation, porphyria, or lycanthropy?

Answered by MM on 02/10/03:

My art is like leprosy in that it is something people are afraid to embrace. And I am a leper because I infect those who come in contact with my ideas. Thanks so much for your heartfelt concern about my health. Everyday I die and everyday you seem to attend my funeral. Don't cry, I'm merely molting like the snake in your bed.

Dandy? DANDY? You are not a dandy. The whole Marilyn Manson image is based upon your not being a "dandy". Firstly, the term had long been out of fashion in the 30's Grotesque era- it had been fairly dead since Edwardian times. Secondly, you haven't worn a decent outfit since your mother dressed you in your childhood. When there were Dandies, they were younger than you. Men your age would have been Gentlemen. Lastly, you don't like fashionable life (e.g. opera, classical concerts, theatre) and therefore cannot be a dandy. I'd be surprised if you've listened to anything but ghastly rock music in your youth. Thank God you're trying to culture yourself now. ( REMOVED COMMENT)

Answered by MM on 02/09/03:

I really hope you choke on your library card. You have no explanation for your misconception of late Victorian fashion. Aubrey Beardsly would love to cook your pathetic liver for me and my "dandies" to snack on between Oscar Wilde poetry readings.
