Your descriptions for TGAOG are very similar to how you described Holy Wood before it came out. Violent, hard, etc. But with Holy Wood, you said you said it's what Marilyn Manson fans want, whereas with the new album, you're saying you made it as a fan. In what ways, if any, will The Golden Age of Grotesque be similar to Holy Wood?

Answered by MM on 03/13/03:

You will have to decide. It was made for different reasons. In a different time and world with a clearer vision. They are not meant to be compared...but I think they are not similar in a fantaSTICK way.

okay, i'll start by saying that there are basically 2 spieces of Marilyn Manson fans. (and this is so because of Mechanical Animals.) the first (the pure breeds) stuck with you (and loved) Mechanical Animals. the second said fuck that and then came back after it was over or they're just "new freaks" (also because of Mechanical Animals.) I'm a pure breed. i first saw you when i was 11 years old. and i've bought every album you and your band have come up with. well getting to what i want to say is that i'm in the united states airforce. i'm 18 years old and i used to have a band. all i wanted was to make music so i joined the military for money and travel. it blows (trust me.) everything i stand for is wasted. now i don't know what to do. i'm saving up for equipment and all and i have inspiration all the time. and i'm fixing to go to war. i read you quit the producing thing. i know godhead kind of sucked but you could have found better. if my music ever gets started, well i should say finished, i'm going to contact you and see if you're up for it. i'm not asking now, but i'm letting you know that if we're both still alive when that day come's, i'll be looking for you. you have truelly inspired me in more than just music. you're like a father figure i never had. keep up the good work. by the way i found some tab books here in japan. Antichrist, Mechanical Animals, and Holy Wood. Everything is tabbed. why don't you release that type of stuff in the US? (oh, i can play just about everyone of your songs, and sing...) Mechanical Animals is the most beautiful compilation of instruments i have ever listened to. that (in my opinion) is the best album ever...except for Smells Like Children, but that's not really an album, is it?

Answered by MM on 03/13/03:

Listen carefully...I am honored that you are inspired. That is the best compliment. I don't care or judge fans by when they came around. Thanks for sticking by, and joining in the growth patterns. Make your music. Fight your own wars. The world is changing, art is to be made like there is no tomorrow. Stay true to your love, it doesn't matter where you are in life. That is what you will be remembered for.

Have you ever read the book, or seen the movie Requiem For A Dream? If so, what did you think of either? They both had a major impact on me, i thought they were wonderful.

Answered by MM on 03/13/03:

It disturbed me for several hours and on many levels. I like the author of the original book it was based on and I have a cd of his spoken work. I think it was a truly sad film and it hit me hard. I looked past all the great image manipulation and the story was very painful. I watched it twice, and it was like the guilty curiosity of chewing on foil.

Greetings my friendly foe ... My Trailer is warm and cozy this Ohio night. My question to you is: Did you watch the VH1 show "Driven" and did you enjoy seeing your childhood friends? Do you hate those who did the show? Do you miss me? You'll be happy to know I don't have much longer to live ... Hep C has taken it's toll on my body ... Fare thee well Rockstar

Answered by MM on 03/13/03:

Mike if you are serious, that's sad to hear. I never wanted to dislike you. In fact, I wanted to be as "cool" as you and your friends thought you were. I was naive. Enjoy your life and know I don't hate you, never did. I wonder if you feel guilty or responsible for the way our two lives have turned out. I must say (and to others reading) you did make enough of an impression that I remembered you as a bully. I wish that wasn't my only opinion, and I no longer judge you---we were kids. It is strange how things end up?

RIGHT..I AM GUESSING YOU DONT OR NEVER WILL ANSWER MY QUESTION.....I AM A LOYAL MANSON FAN WHO HAS ALL THE ALBUMS AND POSTERS AND HAVE BEEN TO UR CONCERTS...YOU ANSWER ALL THESE OTHER STUPID QUESTIONS !! WHY CNT U ANSWER MINE!!! my question is: What do you think of the 'cradle of filth' frontman? he is called dani i think. I read in metal hammer magazine his gurlfriend called you ugly? and he was complaning about you saying you were fake. he also said that you said once ' he was wearing a manson costume' meaning he is copying your style? Plz oh plz manson answer this one question!! I think in my opinion cradle of filth is not what you could call good music. Healsomis a rip off with contacts, hair and looks stupid.

ok , i bought the revolver mag with you in it and i am a bit lost. you said this is going to be the most commercial album... and you sound happy about that. so im thinking you must have comprimised something. you are a very abstract artist , and abstract commericials are a bit of an odd mix. not saying you sold out or any of that stuff , but exactly what did you mean by commercial? thank you for your time.

Answered by MM on 03/11/03:

I think it is viewed as easy to access because it did not try to be. We are not a commercial band. I just wanted to make a record I could enjoy as a fan myself. There is no compromise and if something is forbidden in one place I will share it in another.
