If I'd say that I'm really good at sucking cock, would you consider it as art?

Answered by MM on 03/15/03:

Your face can be the canvas and the paint is...well. You know.

Are any of the other band members ever going to be doing vocals?

Yes, the whole band does backup vocals on this album on a few numbers.

did u ever lose faith in yourself? in your abilities? did u “know” u were going to make it? cause being sure makes it a lot easier i guess. when did u decide that u wanted to become a rock star?(age) how would u deal with failure? i can’t stop wondering if there r many other “Marilyn Manson”s out there that just didn’t make it, and the possibility that u could be one of them just drives me crazy, i mean even amongst equals or think-alikes’ only the best(or most lucky) will rise above, so basically by making it as a rock star u just pushed down a lot of people that r like u cause it’s a competitive business even amongst your own “species”, how many ideas would have gone to waste if u hadn’t succeeded… (and this is not only about your case, there could be a Jesus out there that no one ever discovered, a savior who got unlucky, it’s all about fame anyway and if people don’t know u then u r nothing, it’s all about influence, everything is the same in nature and we’re all just planets sucking all the smaller ones into our atmosphere, and maybe the biggest will make a sun of itself and give life and make everyone else revolve and evolve around it, u can call it inspiration or faith if u want, we all have a different world inside our heads but it’s only real if we can “download” that world into other peoples heads, cause otherwise my death will be the end of my world but through works of art or anything man creates he can multiply his world-self, thus i see art as sperm, i just get fucked each time i listen to music or read a book, so we must find ourselves like Nietzsche stated…or maybe stop reading books like he did!) so what would u do if u hadn’t made it? or maybe that just wasn’t a possibility-wasn’t an option, i think it was Freddie Mercury who said that u can’t prepare for failure cause then u’ll fail(that’s not an exact quote), was it “all or nothing”? if u weren’t a rock star would i be ordering MacDonalds from u? would u have a job? what would it be? i can’t help wondering but i guess things can only turn out the way they did… i believe in determinism (but at the same time in free will which sounds somewhat strange), do u? (sorry for my English, it’s my second language..). irrelative-more about planets: but even if i’m a meteorite-fan, maybe if i was big enough i could make a really “deep impact” on a planet-idol after the initial burning-excitement of getting to know it-demystify him, like a fan with a gun really made a deep impact on the life of John Lennon (though i shouldn’t joke about that and i’m not, and no this is not a death threat that u can add to your collection). could u clarify comment.. criticism,interpretation, i think i would like to commend him, not TO him, can u trust a man who doesn't introduse himself by his real name? or who by that name implies the duality of his character? don't mind me i'm just joking, or maybe i'm just being a smart-ass, but asses can see angels too..

Will power is the only thing that makes a true force survive. I knew what I wanted and I believed it. There is no "what if..." I thank all the people who believed in me finally.

hi. I'm not trying to sound like a asshole for asking this, but why're you so obsessed with artists and stuff? most people who are true artists dont constantly go around talking about how great it is and what it's like to be one. ~stimpy~

Answered by MM on 03/15/03:

Who are these people? I try to make art something less pretentious than what is put in museums. I don't obsess, confess, I just digress...I don't need to impress. Call it what you want. I just get it done. Most of my idols never got recognized in their time. I create. Call me what you want. I get it done. It is all about thhe imagination.

Still no replies to any of my questions. How dissapointing it is for some one with so many " opinions" to not have a single one about any thing I have told you. By the way what with the whole Dani filth thing. You know he sucks just say it. Or do you have to shut your mouth because he is on Ozzfest with you? Well here is to hoping you get back to me for once.

Answered by MM on 03/15/03:

Why do I have to say the sky is blue? I don't ever have to shut my mouth...so what is your question, encinoman--clasm, sorry?

1) Do you think that there is not enough "realism" in the music industry. As in that bands/artist, are too scared to say what they want, so they conform to what the music industry wants. 2)Do you think there should be more truth to music. Each type of music is good in its own way. But to me it seems that the music industry has a certain...Fear spread through musicians/artists these days.....3)do you agree or disagree with this!? and 4) Do you think music nowadays is a little lost and that there is too much pressure from everyone looking for some sort of savoir?

Answered by MM on 03/15/03:

"Realism?" How about artistry. Fake or real. I'd be happy seeing someone who cared or wrote what they sang. But I don't listen to these things anyway--- I listen to you wonderful boys and girls...soon I will have something for you to hear.
