ASK VOLTAIRE BEGINS!

For better or worse, I find myself answering a lot of questions on-line and through emails...mostly professional advice.  And I often get the same questions over and over again.  It seems to me it would be far more efficient, if these questions were asked in a public forum so that the answers could possibly help others.  So.... I'm starting a weekly "ASK VOLTAIRE" column right here. If you have a question about something I've done or about pretty much anything you feel I may be able to help with, ask it here. I will do my best to answer as many as I can. It may be one a week, or it may be more. The lines are now open so FIRE AWAY!

How would I be able to acquire a Candy Claws plush? They've been sold out for quite some time and I never had the chance to get one. I'm truly heartbroken because it. My birthday is Halloween (as modern people call it) and Hargoyle would be absolutely perfect for me. I need a candy corn toothed, guardian gargoyle in my life.

Is it too late to get the original deady toy? I've been a fan of yours since your debut in AQW and your music is still as amazing to me as it was in 2008. My friends and family have find your music "weird" as they put it but I dont care, Rock on Man!

Kyberdude: The figures in my video are not Disney Vinylmation figures... they are figures I designed myself. You can see them all here: http://voltaire.net/toy_gallery/ Cheers! Voltaire
Kyberdude October 19, 2015 @07:51 pm
I noticed you have a lot of figurines in the background of your videos. Are those the Disney vinylmation figures? If not, what are they and where did you get them?

Hi again. Im a young musician in high school and, sadly to say, I dont take school very serious. I like to learn but, a regular school like mine just doesnt seem to cut it. So, I would like ask for some advice and.. honestly some motivation would be really cool. Oh, and... because Im an amateur at this whole music thing, Im not confident enough to sing in front of people spontaneously and, in all honesty, I think its a lack of confidence. sooooo... yeah.. another advice thing. Thank-You!!!
Pedrakhan March 24, 2015 @01:40 pm
Voltaire can you come to Czech republic, please? P.S. Sorry for my bad english

Would you ever consider doing a collab with Emilie Autumn? I know it's been asked before, but...
I like camels; camels are sexy October 13, 2014 @10:27 pm
This is kind of a convoluted question, but i'm curious about a possible hidden joke in "Hell in a Handbasket". In the line "I'm gonna be there in that number/that's 666, the number of the beast", the notes sound similar to the line "Lord, I want to be in that great number" from "O, When the Saints". I've never looked up the sheet music for "Hell in a Handbasket", so if it's not similar at all i'm sorry. Anyway, "O When the Saints" is a very popular piece to play on harmonica, and, when written in tabs, "that number" is written as "666". Was this an intentional reference, or am i just digging too deep?
Donald March 23, 2014 @03:38 pm
Voltaire, is it true that you're bisexual?
Amber December 08, 2013 @04:28 am
I really think you are amazing and inspiring in so many ways! I have always wanted to see you in concert, I became a fan when I was introduced to your music by a friend in Charlottesville, VA back in 2002 but now I live in Oklahoma. So my question is: Will you be coming to Oklahoma City or Tulsa anytime soon or ever? I did notice that you are going to be in Portland. Portland is my future hometown, in about two years. I will be visiting there this upcoming summer to learn the area...unfortunately I cannot be there when you are. So another question I would love to ask is will you be going back sometime in the near future, beyond January 2014, I mean? If so, when?

Geez, now I don't Geez, now I don't know which version of the song is btteer . I totally love how Voltaire kicks at covers, all covers I've heard from him are pure awesomeness . I dunno how he does it, covers are always just so fake and bad even from good artists .
Santiago Valdez May 09, 2013 @06:36 pm
I saw a brony PMV with your song Death Death Death Death (Devil Devil, Evil Evil, Songs), I saw that Voltaire commented on it and stated a compliment about it. So that got me wondering, are you a brony? Or at least a fan of the show?
Velvet Room October 18, 2012 @04:25 pm
Hey, Voltaire! I'm another one of the people asking about "The Chosen". I'm really curious about what it's meaning is, and I'd really appreciate it if you could explain it in one of your next Ask Voltaire YouTube videos. Thanks!

Marissa September 23, 2012 @11:47 pm
I really appreciate your music. There's a lot I can relate to, emotionally, in your music. And, if and when I have children, I'm going to lul them to sleep with Goodnight Demonslayer. It's one of my favorite songs, right beside Snakes and They Know Me. My question is: Will you have any up-comming tours?

Ravyn December 29, 2011 @04:03 pm
If this question has already been asked, feel free to ignore it: I was talking with Hilde Pederson about your song The Chosen, and we both came up with the question -- does the song have anything to do with the infamous Ed Gein? Many of the lyrics seem to hint that it may be, but I've never seen an official statement that it is or is not. One example: "Then the lampshade smiled at me" = Ed Gein made a lampshade out of a human face.

There's an Australian piano player/singer over here in England named Tim Minchin. He's a comedy song writer and a brilliant pianist. His songs can be everything from jokey to relatively dark. Have you ever heard of him? If not, I recommend listening to a couple of his songs. Would you ever consider writing a song with him?

Hey there, seems like I forgot to post here as well. Last place though haha don't worry. I know this has probably been asked before, but still. I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me what would it take exactly to remotely do serious work with/for you? I mean, if possible music or video-wise. And to note, important - I'd do it for free. Strange and rare, but actually I've done that twice with other people in similar business - works out eventually but I always ask individually since, you know, it's a matter of individual views and preferences. Apologies for my impudence but I can't help it.. (work on those demo-like vids and scripts I wrote to you about is slow you know =D) Thanks in advance for your answer. AND, if I'm bugging you, say it, I'll slow down =3

LuckyBlackCat13 July 07, 2011 @10:13 am
Yeah...i already know that i already asked you a lot of questions before...But I want to get your opinion on something. I imagine that as an artist, maybe friends or people from your school asked you to draw random crap for them....So my problem is basically that. I have a semi-friend who wants me to draw a portrait of her...But I don't want to. If this ever happened to you, what did you do? I mean, if it had been anyone else, I would've simply said "No" but since she's sort of a friend, then I'm not very sure how to respond without seeming mean. =\ In the meantime, I'll act like I forgot...o.o

VOLTAIRE June 11, 2011 @08:08 pm
Trent Price: I HAVE been answering the questions. But you can't expect I will answer then all at once. Because I tend to give very detailed answers and because I am in the middle of recording an album, finishing a film, touring, designing toys, etc.... I can do about one a week. Sorry if that's too slow for you but the fact is that if I spent all of my time answering the questions, if it became my top priority, then I would stop making music, movies, toys, etc.. and then ironically, no one would want to ask me questions! lol! I'm just one guy and I'm doing the best I can. Voltaire

Kristi amundson June 10, 2011 @07:05 am
Hello Voltaire ! I realize you're getting flooded with questions. I've been trig to follow your blog as in hoping not to repeat this question but here it goes! I was at you're show last October at the horror film festival in sacremto, and I got to h chat with you for a bit and I mentioned my fanmade trailers for some of your songs. So my question is: will you ever add a "fan art" page to your website? I know you're EXTREMELY busy and my hat is off to you good sir ! But I think it would be cool to see some of the fan art people always post on your page that's simply dedicated to all about you! With maybe their names and a comments section to get other peoples opinions. I have a few videos on my YouTube page that I'd love other Fellow Voltaire lovers to see (: since the videos are fanmade and dedicate to your songs. Thanks for taking time to read this! Kristi amundson
Q June 10, 2011 @05:27 am
What kind of process, if any, do you go through when writing a song?
Lucky Black Cat June 08, 2011 @09:40 pm
I have a lot of questions, actually...How do you find time to do all these things that you do? Do you have advice for someone who's attention span is very flaky? ((I can't tell you how many times I've begun an art piece and not finished it.)) And was New Jersey really that horrible to you? What religion did your family reinforce while you were growing up? Who would you say inspires your work? ((Of course, I don't expect you to choose just one person. :] )) And would you ever consider collaborating with Emilie Autumn? ((I saw a comment above, and I agree that you guys probably would make an interesting song together...)) Anyways. Hopefully you'll get this comment. Even more Hopefully, you'll get around to answering my various questions. :] With the love that only a fan could bear, LBC

Erik May 30, 2011 @02:20 pm
Alright, this has bugged me since i first heard the song Ex lovers lover. Starting with the first chorus there seems to be a second voice with yours. Its kind of a deeper whisper in the background and is in all the choruses except the last. Was this a second vocal track? Just an echo? A second singer? Just a cool effect u felt like adding during editing? Did the devil himself sit in on that recording and felt like helping out?

Voltaire I've been having social problems, mostly with someone who is, how should I say, abusive towards someone I love. A girl. What do I do? Beat the crap out of him and be sent to jail or let her suffer? The girl whom I love.
Sophia May 28, 2011 @01:55 am

Hello there!! I first of all want you to know that you have really saved me with your music. You made me smile when I was in a terrible situation, Thank you so much. And for my question: What was it like for you living in New Jersey? Was it really as bad as your song "Bomb New Jersey" said?

Emm... First of all I'd like to say THANK YOU for your magic songs =) And now: 1. Did enybody ever said you that your songs saved his(her) life? What would be your reaction if somebody said it? 2. Why are your songs so cheerful through they have... emm...mystical (even demonic xD) lyrics? XD
Katharine May 20, 2011 @10:47 pm
Where will you be posting your answers? Because, frankly, I am quite curious as to your answer to some of these....
Dallas-T May 20, 2011 @12:51 pm
Voltaire, You are a very brave man for opening this can of worms. Thank you for showing a human side behind the celebrity. I have a short list of questions. What, if any, is your guitar’s name? Are you self taught or did you take lessons? What size vest do you wear? What was the last book you read? Would you ever consider a joint project with Neil Gaiman and Brom? Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. In All Truth, T
Blynx May 19, 2011 @02:48 pm
As someone who happened to have started listening to your music near the beginning and whose way of thinking and style mirrored that of what you speak of, and has sat and analyzed every song, due to my own personal cynical sense of reasoning, I have to ponder just two single questions: One, out of all the songs you've written and preformed, if you had to chose one, just one, as the stand out explanation of who you are, which song would you pick? Not which song the fans represent or crave the most, but which one you stand by the most. Secondly, I've read through a few of yuor books (actually had you sign the inside of Paint It Black back in Chicago last December), and through what you've written I wanted to write a book based upon my own life and adventures of being the last Goth in the town I live in, would you recommend even attempting the idea, or should I save my scribblings for my own personal memoirs. Take care.
randi May 19, 2011 @01:12 pm
What is the most financially beneficial way (for you) to purchase your music? Mp3 or cd? I guessed mp3 but you never know nowadays. Also have you ever planned or thought about doing a duo or project with Emilie Autumn? I would think you would be very complimentary to each other and I would definitely buy it.

Hey, its me again. My classmates have heard 2 of your songs and think your stupid( I DON'T!). When I talk about you, they mock(Is that how its pronounced?) me! I've been bullied because of my size( Im pretty short), but to bully me because I love your music is to go TOO FAR! What should I do? Im asking you because of your experiences in New Jersey. Do you have any advices?
Trent Price May 19, 2011 @08:31 am
hey Voltaire i want start this saying im a long time fan of your stop motion and music, because of this i now study animation at south bank tafe qld australia. any way i wonder what advice you could give a starting/starving animator. Was also wondering what advise you give students who are about to enter the animation world as i will then pass then on to my class this would mean a lot to "ME" a long time fan of your work. one last thing do u make your stop motion models or do u get them from some were thanks from Trent upholder of the Twisted Dream
Matthew Hocking May 19, 2011 @04:42 am
Are you much of a George Carlin fan? Unless I misheard, you made a reference to him in the song Dead...right? The man was brilliant, in my opinion, and the world's not been the same since '08.
anakie May 18, 2011 @11:35 pm

Greg May 17, 2011 @07:06 pm
At a panel at Dragon Con you referenced a song from a British artist, from the 20's I believe, that was similar to Goodnight Demon Slayer. I can't find the song; would you please tell the name and artist again? Many thanks.
Ola May 17, 2011 @06:08 pm
What is the weirdest dream/idea you've ever had? And whats the deal with that key around your neck? The first time I saw it was on the cover on Ooky Spooky. That time I thought it was a part of the mexican costume, but when I looked closer at your pictures, I saw the key. So, whats the deal?
Julie May 17, 2011 @04:22 pm
Merch question/comment: Got some semi-famous monster musician buddies who NEED to find a decent producer of action figures to work with. Who would you recommend, since you've done toys? And on that note: why can I not purchase stickers, shirts, and other stuff with your gorgeous face on em, or at least your name/logo? I like to support my favorite musicians & artists by sportin' their swag...more merch, please!!
punkerkitten May 17, 2011 @04:07 pm
Hey, so im going to be in England for your York show... Are you even going to perform there, or should i make it to the london showing?
Meridee May 17, 2011 @03:47 pm
I second the question, how are you going to answer all these questions? ALSO! something ive been upset at for a bit now.... When you performed in the NW a few months ago, you sang a spoof on Vampire Club, and IT WAS AWESOME. would really like to see that on a CD at some point! Maybe spoof your own songs? Your fairly good at it!
Andrew May 17, 2011 @12:29 pm
1. Oranges or apples? 2. what's the beat way to dance across a Methodist college campus while listening to songs by you (Florida southern so fun)?
dustfull May 17, 2011 @09:34 am
Before I ask my question, I just wanted to say your open-ness with your fans is mind blowing. You're going to get a lot of dumb comments/questions... Basically, I'm cutting hours at my shit ass job in the hopes of starting a small fashion business. My question is: How the hell did you become successful (other than starving)? Do you consider yourself successful? What was your goal when you decided "I want to be self employed and make enough money to support my son/family"? Thanks for caring mr. V, we all love and admire you for it.
Crocrocker May 17, 2011 @05:28 am
Would it be possible for you to perform in Europe? Here in Slovenia, there's a festival for folk or any other kind of music, where different bands from all over the world perform. I think that for the USA, you would be the best choice and it would be awesome to see you live. :)
Kharinn May 17, 2011 @03:56 am
What is your Rising Sign? To spare you some googling, it's the one that depends on the time and place of birth. Thanks for your time! :)
Charles May 17, 2011 @01:15 am
Hello, Out of curiosity, are you a bass or a baritone singer? Thanks, Charles
Anonymous May 16, 2011 @11:22 pm
Do you know of any colleges that have good stop motion courses?
Sivaroobini May 16, 2011 @10:57 pm
Hi Voltaire, I was just wondering if there's any chance of you doing a show in Singapore? We have lots of awesome food and year-round summer! And you can bring some silks back for your wife. ;)
Adam May 16, 2011 @10:48 pm
The song "The Chosen" is one of my favorite songs it really hits me. I want to know what you intended the song to be about thanks.
Jake May 16, 2011 @10:44 pm

Kyoya Pleasant May 16, 2011 @08:11 pm
Are we allowed to give you idea's on what your next CD should be based around? xD I had a few thoughts while chatting with my sis about your albums. Have you always liked the dark side of things? I tend to find your music inspirational as well as mostly true. What's your main inspiration?
anakie May 16, 2011 @08:00 pm

Andres May 16, 2011 @06:44 pm
According to your facebook, it says you're interested in men and women. Are you really bisexual, or is that something you just put for the hell of it?
Nightmare97 May 16, 2011 @06:18 pm
Will your son ever appear in any of your videos? Me and my friends would really like to see him! Can you please make some kind of video with you and your family?

Stella May 16, 2011 @04:55 pm
What exactly does the Japanese proverb used in 'The Happy Song' mean? The figurative meaning, I mean. Also, what're some of the weirdest things your fans have given you?
Mark Muerte May 16, 2011 @04:43 pm
Are you working on a new album yet?
Barry May 16, 2011 @04:32 pm
Because of songs like "Dead" and "Hell in a Handbasket", I get the impression that you are an atheist like I am. Is this true?
Herb May 16, 2011 @04:30 pm
How are you going to answer these questions?
Larxene May 16, 2011 @04:20 pm
Which of your songs is your favorite and why?
Jeanie Fowler May 16, 2011 @04:16 pm
What was it that your wife did(if not graphic)that made you want to leave behind your "sinful" ways? :-)
RaisedOnGoth May 16, 2011 @03:56 pm
Is there any slim chance at all that you might be coming to Israel... Ever?
Mashka May 16, 2011 @03:56 pm
What would YOU do for a Klondike bar?
Toni May 16, 2011 @03:55 pm
Voltaire, I know you do music and stop motion. Is there anything else that you are doing that might be something awesome (like drawing, finger painting, answering fan mail with awesomeness and etc.etc..) ?
Guitar_Geek May 16, 2011 @03:49 pm
What kind of guitar is that beautiful black thing you always play? (brand, model)
Halloween May 16, 2011 @03:43 pm

Do you have any upcoming events? I want to hear you sing in person so badly! <33
Ruth May 16, 2011 @03:35 pm
I know you get asked this type of question a lot, but have you perchance been to South Africa before? And if so, do you think you would ever stop by again? I'm sure Cape Town would love to have you. ^_^
Xephiliomia May 16, 2011 @03:32 pm
Would you happen to have any tips for first time book authors? Publishing, printing, topics..things of that sort.
Nemo May 16, 2011 @03:30 pm
Hello, I would like to ask if there would be any chance of seeing you somwhere near Central Europe. For example Austria or Czech Republic... Thank you. (I apologize for my english:)
Amy Pantle May 16, 2011 @03:29 pm

Who is some of your most liked authors and books? Okay I know not the norm, but I have to ask it anyway.
Minjaz May 16, 2011 @03:05 pm
How do you find the time to do everything? In all honesty.. what's your time management style? I also have to juggle children, job, house, life, etc.... I wish I had more time to follow my creative pursuits but there's never enough time. What's your secret, Good Sir? Btw, you rocked in Saskatoon... so glad I could be there.
Midnight May 16, 2011 @03:05 pm
