I think I am still in a state of awe over the art work for the album, the tracklist, and even the release date(eventhough it seems so far away.) After viewing the V-day video and seeing the (cover?) art work, I noticed that this album seems to be taking a childish approach. I mean that in a good way. Sort of like an Alice in Wonderland or something like that. I also notice the controversy and really strong statement the art work creates, and I love it. Not that I ever had my doubts, but this really is the Golden Age. However, can you shed a bit of light on the next wall we're going to destroy on our way to finally reach The Golden Age of Grotesque?

There is no wall. There is w-a-l-l and these are just letters.

Answered by MM on 02/19/03:

Thank you. This record is the Marilyn Manson I have been dreaming to be always. The fans deserve credit for drawing that from me and the boys.

I enjoy the new album art. but what does mickey mouse have to do with 30's era berlin?????????

Answered by MM on 02/19/03:

All the art we have done, has many levels, but in regards to Mickey...his image was also considered to be "degenerate" by the fascist government in that country. In America he represented so much more. These are pieces of the imagination, no more, no less.

You dont know me, but I know you Aktion, how about I be the math and you can subtract from this. I wonder if nothing records is the problem? I wonder why Trent would censor your art?, Also now for a intresting question that im sure everyone would want to know the answer too, The long awaited Tapeworm project, Why arent u involved????, u should be involved , maybe you are involved but probably not.

Answered by MM on 02/17/03:

Sorry, but I have no involvement with Nothing Records as they have separated from Interscope. Trent would never censor me, but then again I am not allowing anyone else to either. I also don't know any details of Tapeworm.

Is it true that you are on ozzfest? And is the record art holding up the album. I have heard that it involves Disney or Micky Mouse in some way? is this a rumor?

Answered by MM on 02/17/03:

All that will be answered tomorrow and Tuesday. Be prepared for some entertaining times. I must go now, the trumpets are blaring.

"Answered by MM on 02/15/03: Sunday is the end of the week. Please be patient. " But Monday morning is the beginning of the next week, so would you mind??

Answered by MARILYN MANSON on 02/17/03:

THE ALBUM DATE WILL BE RELEASED WITH THE COVER ART TO THE ENTIRE MEDIA OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT 24 HOURS. This is AKTION and I am operating without the ccoperation or the consent of those who control me contractually. This will be interesting. And I will post it in the news first, as the art is recieved in the morning. Thank you for your patience. A clue though: the total of songs is the same as my magic number and the release date is just a HARE away. Showers and flowers. you know. LOVE AND I AM the leader of the club...

The Silent Concubine A black afternoon unfurls The concubine, is peering out from the windowsill again half-alive, one-quarter dressed hair draped across her chest, lithe and flowing like Venus, a stark everlasting empty empress, stands before the picturesque view in shame, without a spark of hope, without a glint of faith, Cheeks, slightly rouge, consumed by shades of gray Lips part, in slowed slurred motion as if to say, not a single thing she stutters madly to her self quick, calm, & premature; maddening Silently she mutters nothing under her breath, muted hopes transmute metamorphic tinted smoke, congealing wafts of absence, mouthing words of garbled nonsense Facial spasm, shifting moods Blue nightfall descends She crawls beneath silky sheets pillowed clouds distilling mushroom haze pantomimes the movement of a woman of the coming age bruised lips & yellow teeth Such a violent addiction to anyone, to anything A gentleman enters her bed “Sorry, I thought…” She gasps as the three prongs of her bra unclasp “I thought you said that we could just talk this time?” underpants lay on the floor perfumed soft & clean no room left to dream air vacuumed heaving seething screaming, she speaks No room for negotiation No deviation from the predestined path a pillow absorbs her head & she is silenced once again

Very dark, beautiful...but sad. I'd love to hear more.
