    Do you watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? If not I highly recommend it, but if its not for you then that is fine too. Are we allowed to ask two? Well I was just wondering if you might one day come play at some obscure place like, oh I don't know, the Faroe Islands perhaps? It would be the most wonderful thing ever if it were to happen..

    Voltaire, What advice can you offer to an artist in the Goth (or any of the eight million sub genres) community who is looking to get more into the public eye? Being that you dabble in a little bit of everything, seems you're the man to ask this kind of question to! The Voltaire is wise, the Voltaire knows.

    Hi again, Voltaire. What is your fascination with Japanese language and culture? Two of my favourite songs of yours feature Japanese: The Happy Song, which has only a couple of lines, and, most prominently, Ringo No Uta (or, "Apple's Song"). Of course you also have tongue-in-cheek references, "I think I slept with half the population of Japan" :p Anyways,I've been studying Japanese with a private tutor from Nagoya for half a year now, and so I feel compelled to ask, how fluent are you with Japanese? Have you spent a lot of time there? I'd like to make my first visit over within a couple of years -- is there anywhere you'd particularly recommend? Toodles for now, - Brad

    I am a Goth in Southwestern part of Florida, and I have been constantly been troubled with finding a place to purchase clothing and accessories for a hardcore Gothic attire. Hot Topic has become a colorful mainstream that no longer appeals to the underground subculture and I was hoping you could point me in the right direction, whether it be a website(s) or a location or maybe ways to customize common clothing for a more darker image. Thank you for reading this message.

    I can not write music, but I do have songs I wrote that I would like music written to. So far none of the local artists can help me. I am starting to wonder if my songs are just not that good. Any advice?

    Greeting Voltaire; I hope this doesn't sound too odd for your taste, but I've seen a lot of questions and comments regarding your work (music, videos, art, etc..), but I haven't seen much about your daily routine. SO my main question is: what are some food items that you favor over others? Thank you for your time, M.P

    I'm looking forward to knowing the answer to the question Brad posted, since I've been wondering the same (and because I am Japanese major, hehe). I want to ask a question another question, though. If I'm not mistaken, you were born in Cuba and you even have that cute song (that my two year old loves) in Spanish (El barquito de nuez). Do you speak any Spanish? Also, do you in any way feel linked to that heritage? Say, food you ate or cultural traits that you can relate to, etc. Thank you.

    Dear Voltaire, where do you draw inspiration from, when designing toys? For example: how did Deady's concept come to you? Fun fact: the CAPTCHA below said "dabliss was" ..da bliss was. ..good for bliss. it's become bling, too, apparently.

    I was wondering, sir Voltaire, how do you((you in specific)) memorize lines? Song lines, play lines, just, lines in general. You see I plan on going into the acting business, but I have a hard time memorizing lines. And I heard memorizing lines to sing on stage are some of the hardest to memorize. Thank you for reading.

    Hi! I've got even two questions) The first one: while answering one of the questions, you said that for you to come to some town, there should be someone who can host a person like you (if I got you right). The question is - what's the list of things that you need to come? I mean, what do you require for your coming and performing? And the second question is - What is the most unusual country you would like to visit while touring?

    Being a hardcore atheist, my favorite songs of yours are the ones in which you bash religion. I never wanted to assume anything so for the longest time I've been wanting to ask you about your actual beliefs and philosophies. Please oh sexy, dark one, what do you live your life by?

I myself would love covering or atleast seeing your song setup, as you're probably my biggest or second biggest inspiration. tl;dr: would you be able to get some of your songs written into GuitarPro files? ^^ And that other question; Do you know of Dr. Steel? If so, what's your opinion on him? Keep being one of the most awesome people in the world.

I get alot of flak for thinking the way I do about music and that I feel that music theory and technicality only get you so far that you have to have heart and imagination as well. Alot of people think I'm an arrogant asshole for saying that for some reason. I personally don't care I see myself as more of a confident person but alot of people think I'm really arrogant and cocky. Did you get bombarded with stupid crap like that when you were learning the six string ?

    Hello Mr. Voltaire, Umm, I would like to say that your music brings a smile to my face and a happiness to my heart, and the next time you play in NYC I'll be there as fast as the blasted subway permits me to be. Anyway, your music has many influences, part of the reason I love it so much, but why did you start putting Eastern European folk into your music? Do you like listening to different types of Folk music? Oh, and have you heard of Gogol Bordello? Sorry for the bombardment of questions, I am quite inquisitive. Thank you and have a nice day, Rina.

    Hello Dear Voltaire. I'm just a nobody, so I don't really expect this to be answered. Or read, for that matter. But, I've always wanted at least the chance to whisper to you across the miles, and maybe find out. I completely understand what goth is about. It's not about death, or hating the world, or hating life. It's simply about understanding that life isn't perfect. But, what you have done, what you still do, is you take all the pain and sorrow in life, and you put it to music in songs like Feathery Wings, Where's the Girl, Almost Human, The Chosen, Innocent, so many. Listening to the words of these songs, hurtful as they can be at times, is almost a type of catharsis. A cleansing of the heart and soul, if you will. Was writing these songs, pouring these lyrics out, was it a cleaning of wounds, for you?

    With apologies for asking something I'm sure you've been asked countless times before, I've been wondering - are you Jewish? A lot of your songs contain jokes about or references to Judaism, so I've wondered for a while. I read somewhere on Youtube that "Voltaire isn't Jewish, he's Cuban" - but of course the two are by no means mutually exclusive. Also, I just wanted to add that when my brother got married, I was one of the two best men, and my sister-in-law arranged for the opening of When You're Evil to be played as I walked up (down?) the aisle. This almost made me fall over laughing. Thanks for all the years of great music.

Just a blouse, a simple skirt and plain waistcoat and some ill-educated girl, quite randomly, took a photograph of me as I was walking! Not a single word, just a simple smirk and she was off! What would you do in a situation like that, or how you would react to any ill-informed member of the public at all? I mean, I do my best not to react as much as I can but, it does grow rather tiresome. Much obliged~ Thanks for your help! Yours, Marionette-chan

    Hello, Aurelio! It's absolutely great and caring of you to answer to fans' questions and keeping the communication going, you rock! But more to the point. In "Ask Voltaire part one" you responded to a question concerning your favorite authors and books by directing to this thread. Immediately did it compel me to anxiously gaze at what those could be. Stricken down by what I've read I couldn't help but ask this: what about "graveyard picnic"? Surely you wouldn't have written about Edgar Poe, mentioning several of his titles, without reading the writer? Or did you think that the question about favorite books implied just novels? Would love hearing from you, you are a great, great man! P.S. Please, honor Russia by coming here on tour, that would be stellar. P.S.S. Sorry for the mistakes, if there are any.

I ask you because you are one of the few musicians operating at this time who can really capture and set a mood or emotion for any type of song. Cheers K (and the rest of MoC for that matter)

    Hello Voltaire. I am an up and coming musician trying to get his start. I come to you seeking help for lyrical writing. Can you give me any advice to help me get better sounding lyrics? Thank you for your time.

    Oh my dearest Voltaire, first i've been wondering if you've ever remotely thought of holding a competition in which people break glass with more glass. Due to a dream I had where that glorious occasion occurred. Also, do you ever get your own songs stuck in your head? Do you walk around muttering "Our female selection is not quite perfection."?

    Konichiwa, Voltaire! I love the cello, the sound it makes, everything. I also have one. I tried taking lessons but I just can't read (much)sheet music, never could. On your newest CD "Riding a Black Unicorn..." I love the cello in "Innocent" and "When The Circus Came To Town" - I love the songs as well. I was wondering if, in your new "How To Play..." segments, you could include your bandmember who plays the cello for bits in those? I would be eternally grateful! Abigail/pengin-chan

    Though I have HUNDREDS of questions for you, Voltaire, they're probably the extremely-clihe, already-asked-and-answered type, sadly. My question is actually for the wonderful clarinetist that played on Riding A Black Unicorn Down The Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with The Laughter of Small Children. Why did I write the entire, story-long title out? It was fun, that's why! But, my question for Ms. Reichman is if she has an advice for an aspiring clarinetist. She is an inspiration; she reminds me that there is room for clarinetist outside of orchestral music...-hopeful smile- Thank you, Sir Voltaire! I tip my hat to you! P.S are you aware that the CAPTCHA says "Coffin"? It's HORRIBLY epic!

Two, How do you remember the music for the songs? Good memory or do you have a system to write it down and remember it?

I felt a little stupid for not noticing before. Anyways, my school does musicals each year, and students are allowed to submit plays they've written. Would you mind if me and my friend wrote a musical featuring some of your songs? 2. I saw someone on YouTube comment and ask this, and it got me intrigued too! So, for all the dragon lovers out there; Voltaire, what is your opinion on dragons? That's all! Thank yous! :3 (&lt;- Kitty face. You must love the cats! &gt;:0)

    I've watched your music video "Happy Birthday (My Olde Friend)" several times and, as of recently, started wondering when you may consider making another. Oddly enough, a possible music video that popped up in my mind is for the song "Mechanical Girl," in which, I imagined it all played out in a stop-motion style, like some of the commercials and short films on your website. All that said, my question is if you may consider making a new music video and, if so and if time permits, would you consider doing it in a stop-motion style?

It has freaked out Many members of our church and the people who call my cell phone number mistakenly because it is similar to a car dealership in our area. The poor old man who called this morning could not stop studdering and asking if I really was evil. When will more of your songs be available for ringback tones? My husband and I both want the unicorn song next. Thanks. (Yes, we are Christains.)

First of all, I live in the southern part of the states in what is known as "The Bible Belt" and I am having a very difficult time finding things of gothic, steampunk, and occult natures. Thus, I was wondering if you could recommend any places and/or websites for such things. Also, I am an aspiring writer and I was wondering if you would have any words of wisdom that you'd be willing to share. I thank you for the inspiration that you give and for the wonderful sounds that you produce. Take care and blessed be.

Now while we have a budget for purchasing the rights to music, I realized I had no idea where to find sheet music for your songs much less an all vocal arrangement. Is there any source for sheet music of your work? And while I'm asking, if you had the time would you ever consider making a musical? The idea of a "To the Bottom of the Sea" musical has been knocking around my head for ages.

Also, if you want some ideas to make them dark, creepy, and/or dirty, I'd say go check out some of the more infamous grimdark fanfictions like Cupcakes or Princess Molestia. These are NOT for the faint of heart but I think you can handle it. XD

    This will probably seem really weird, but have you ever considered creating a stage musical from your music? I say this because every time I hear one of your songs, I can just see it being performed on a stage and everything I hear makes me want to find some way of seeing the music performed. It seems almost criminal that the beautiful spider webs of fairytales behind each song are not told in full. It's awesome that you can interpret them however, it's just something about the music that is itching to be put into a big mashed up, fucked up world and put on a stage.

    Hey sir Voltaire, i was just pondering the idea- do you truly desire to have intercourse with something dead, if so would you like to join me in a delightfully demanted threesome? ... also my friend would like to know have you ever slept in a coffin?

    Hi Voltaire, first, may I say you really are one of the most inspiring artist around! 3 questions; First : On the code card with Urkor, is the cartoon character with you your lovely wife? You make a oh! so beautiful couple both in real life and in the cartoon universe! Wish you both the best! Second : Do you speak french? The way you pronounce "Café" and "Champs Élysés" is flawless! (It's either that or the great care you put into everything, as always!!!) Third: When and where can we order the anniversary edition of the Devil's Bris? I'd hate to miss on that!!! Take care!

    I have been experinceing so much backlash within the goth community agents Tim Burton latly. People have been espically hateful regurading his up coming re-make of Dark Shadows(I can't wait to see it). And while I may not like ever single movie he has ever made I still think of my self as a major fan of Mr. Burton. What are your thoughts on the works of Mr. Burton past and present? Since you are one of the most rational and articulate people I know, espically in the goth community, can you offer any words of advice or words of wisdom that might cool some heads? Thanks!

    Dear Votlaire, Firstly I have to say I'm one of your biggest fans in Slovenia. My question is, have you ever thought of making a musical or anything similar with your songs? The other day, I was listening to Cathouse Tragedy and I clearly pictured the whole scene in front of my eyes, that would make a really wonderful cabaret musical. Is there a possibility that We Voltaire fans will have a chance to see anything similar in the future? Thanks, Aljaz from Slovenia.

    Have you ever found a way to pacify those people who make it thier buisness to punish you for being "an evil and hell bound soul put on this earth to taint the faithful"? Cheif culprets in my life right now are my down stairs neighbor who is trying to get me evicted because goth culture offends her for some reason but who seems to have no problem with the pot smokers and alcoholics who also live in the building. My born again christian sister who bombards me with threats of hell, tries to make me attend jesus camp weekends and cries when I quote any part of the bible that doesn't fit with her selective theology. And lastly the christian group at my university who for some reason belive that studying till the library closes, never getting too drunk to get home safely and refusing to drink anything that would strip paint are signs of a soul in distress and are determined to intervine in my life to "save" me. How do you get these people to go away and let you live your life?

Do you get along with children or are you someone like me, that feels completely lost among them? Do you ever heard about a marvel character named X-23? She's Wolverine clone, raised in captivity,under torture, difficult training since she was a baby,you should read a comic book of hers or two I think you'll like it,and maybe you could write a song based on her? Do you know that you're just so freaking cool? Like,you're the coolest musician I've ever...Met's not the word 'cause we're miles away,huh,heard of? Well you are. PS: I was reading the Ask voltaire here and then,eventually read the one "can you help me get my grilfriend back?" I was just like...WHAT THE HELL?! He's a musician not a dating agency you idiots! hehe,and they say I'm the strange one. And don't feel alone,one day I was watching your vlog Ask Voltaire 2 and you said "I say all sorts of weird things"you're not the only one, dear one,you're not the only one

However, I just wanted to know if Rhapsody compensates you for your music they allow people to listen to. I want to know because, if not, I don't want to use it anymore to listen to any album I don't already own.

    I was wondering whether you considered buying your CD from another online seller, such as one on Amazon, stealing. It's a genuine copy of your CD, but the proceeds go to someone else.

    this is actually more than one question, but i was hoping to get away with getting more than one answer, when you wrote songs like almost human, ex lovers lover and the chosen which are a lot different than what you are doing today (or it seems like it to me) what state of mind were you in and why is it that those songs (not just those specifically but ones with similar subject matter) seem to be discussed a lot less? is it that you simply aren't in the same state of mind as you were then or just that their hasn't been time/reasons to discuss them?

Normally I wouldn't mind this much but I don't want any of your awesome songs sitting blandly in my hard drive. Will there be more "To the Bottom of the Sea" albums for sale anytime soon?

    I have several questions, I don't know if you have any rules regarding such a thing, but I guess I'll know next time! Anyway, what kind(s) of music did you like to listen to when you were a child? What do you think of the Fantasy Metal genre, with groups such as Blind Guardian and Rhapsody of Fire; also, what do you think of the Symphonic Metal genre, for example Within Temptation, Nightwish, and Leaves' Eyes? What is your opinion on The Beatles, Elton John, and 60s/70s music in general? Do you even have an opinion on them? Lastly, where can I buy your "Zombie Prostitute" CD? I can't find it anywhere, and your cover of David Bowie's "China Girl" is the best cover song I've heard in a long time. I didn't think that song could have a sexier vocalist, but then you came along.

    Voltaire. My friends and I really love your Riding a Black Unicorn album. I love it so much, I even dedicated an entire D&amp;D campaign to you and your songs. We fought the Beast of Pirates Bay and most of the monsters from Land of the Dead. But I think the most epic part of it all was when I actually tipped my players off that the level 40 prophetic bard was you. They got a real kick out of your Nightmare mount. So do you ever play tabletop games like that?

    Okay I have a few questions. 1. Marvel or DC? 2. I know this one is asking a lot of you, but I was wondering if you could go on cam for a friend of mine? He's a big fan of yours and he literally said this, "I wish I was as metal as Voltaire", so you're kind of like a big influence to him. I thought it might be a nice thing for him because he's been there for me for almost a year now and he's done so much for me. 3. May I have a hug the next time you're in San Diego? 4. I know this one is really weird and out there, and I'm probably going to get some weird remarks from this, but will you be the "father" I've always wanted? (Sorry if that one was really weird.)

    Greeting and salutations from Venezuela. I have a question: Has your Spanish gone rusty? Do you speak Spanish to your children? ¿No te ha llegado un momento en el que se te olvida una palabra o en el que agarras acento gringo? Have you ever wanted to learn another language? How many languages do you speak? Also, I lied, how wicked! Last question: After hearing Vampire Club I think that you were a little vampire boy playing some White Wolf game when you were young. Is this the case? If so, do you remember the character(s) that you used? You made me learn about those role playing games without actually playing them, so I have to ask: Favorite vampire clan? Alright, alright, I lied again; I’m so terrible! The third and final question is: In any kind of artistic media, original names are needed and appreciated. So, what advice would you give to someone who wants to give their characters original sounding names? And a fourth question, yes, lying is a severe problem. Did you have a favourite cartoon growing up? And would like to work doing voice acting professionally or as a hobby?

    It is wonderful to see you play solo. The recorded versions of some of your songs have a completely different dynamic often due to the haunting violins &amp; accordians. It would be amazing to see you play with your full band but I gather it is cost prohibitive to tour them all and wondered whether you ever, or have ever considered, using session musicians when touring.

    I was curious, so I had to ask you. Have you seen "The Raven" with John Cusack yet? I figured, since you have a song purely about Poe, that you would be just as excited as I to view it. It was not very favorable to me, however. I am just curious to hear your opinion on the movie.

    Hey Voltaire. I must say, I love all your albums (Especially your self-released ones), and I'm wondering why you chose to release them on your own, and how that's going for you. Is it more fun or more work or more rewarding financially or spiritually, for lack of a better word? Thanks

    I would like to start off by saying that I love your music, Vlogs, and films. I would like to ask, what would you do if someone you cared about hated your Goth style so much they contricted your wearing of it. My mother finds it "utterly disgusting and not professional in the least." and says I am not allowed to wear it while in her house. I care about my mom, but I hate being told I can't do what makes me happy. So, I was wondering what you would do.

    I just recently watched your Nooseletter, and you said 'If you have a goth promotor in your city somewhere in Europe, if there's a horror convention, go and tell them there's this crazy guy we wanna see' (direct quote) and I was just wondering if the same thing applied for Canada. I know you occasionally get out to cities near the border, but I was just wondering if arranging one would be possible.

    What are the lyrics to El Barquito De Nuez in English? Actually, I don't even need the exact lyrics, I'd just like to know what the song's about, and as usual, translation sites are only confusing me more, and no one online (who speaks Spanish) has thought to translate them, so Ii thought I'd go straight to the source.

    Hello Voltaire, I only have one question: Would you mind doing tutorials to play your songs? I was searching for tabs and chords of Day of the Dead but I got nothing, then I watched some live videos but I can't understand what you do. It would be great if you do tutorials. Thank you.

    When are we to expect the next series of How To Play? Or at least some tabs or chord charts. I'm too much a dunce to play by ear, so I want some help. I'm looking for, in particular, "Hallo Elskan Min," "Graveyard Picnic," and, "Feathery Wings." Even if your videos are slow, I appreciate that you make them, and I DO use them. I especially liked The Trouble With Tribbles, haha! Almost sang it at a small school function of like, 30 people. Clearly ended in disaster, haha, ended up singing Ex Lover's Lover.

    I would like to know, if I can get/buy sheet music of your songs somewhere. Chords aren't enough help for me... And I want to thank you for being so nice to your fans and answering their questions. In return, I want to give you an uplifting quote by my favourite author, Terry Pratchett: "Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life." Have you ever read one of his books?

As a member of the jewish faith by blood, abeit not belief, I am quite curious as to how this song I have heard in synagogue many years ago had a gothic version of it made and put on the Devil's Bris album of yours.

    Hello Voltaire, I apologize if my English is confusing, My name is Jorge and I was wondering if I could ask 2 questions. The first one is: I heard that Pixar is doing a film called "Dia de los Muertos" I was wondering if you would have a part in that moive. If not I think they should, It would be amazing. The Second one: Is have you ever thought of making a stage musical? Your songs have great character, and I can definitely see it on stage. Thank you very much for your time. Jorge Viveros

I have consider myself to be a goth because of my views and ways that i present myself to the world but i am never taken seriously. Do you have any advice on how to over come not being able to fit in with the common cliche of the Gothic style?

    Hi Voltaire I really hope you see that one. I was wondering what do you think about the Pagan Folk scene? It is actually quite Goth and a lot of goths and metalheads like this music, but it still grows slowly and mostly in Europe. Do you like such music and do you have plans to put out such album one day (i know you love to change the genres of your music and that's awesome)? If you don't know what I'm talking about definitely check out bands like Omnia or Faun. Greetings from a Bulgarian fan!

I personally would like to be killed by an explosion that is caused at a gas station by lightning striking the gas pump,sending debris flying at me,which sends me hurtling into traffic,where a horse trailer swerves to narrowly avoid me,but in doing so its horse is freed,then the horse tramples me in panic.Of course many other people would die by the explosion/resulting wreck,but i don't really care.

    Hi Voltaire! I'm a new fan (seriously, I heard your music for the firtst time a week ago) and I couldn't help but notice that you, unlike most musicians, started out with short hair and later grew it out. What made you decide to grow out your hair? Are you trying for some kind of reverse Samson effect? (FYI, you look smoking hot either way!)

    Hey, Voltaire. I know you're more of a guitar/slash singer kind of guy, but I was wondering which of your songs do you think would be the easiest to learn the violin on? I absolutely love the sound of the melody made on Headless Waltz, but I figured there might be a simpler one to learn for a beginner.

    You suggested another tour down under may be on the cards. I know many artists avoid coming here due to the prohibitive costs. You have a large on-line fanbase but a significant proportion of it seems to be in the US. Other than requesting your songs at clubs, on radio and liking your work on YouTube, FB, Twitter etc, how can your fans in Australia assist you in raising your profile here, not only to share the love, but to ensure your tours are profitable and financially viable. As an adjunct to that question, is there any chance you may tour with a backing band at some point. I would so love to hear live some of the intricacies of the various more unusual instruments you use in your recordings. Or is it simply cost prohibitive to consider. Bless ya cotton sox &amp; I really hope your veiled hint will come to fruition.

Not because of you, my dear. Never because of that. I have no idea how you could help me with this, but I need some sort of disassociation . What songs, that you have written of course, would you suggest that would both get my frustration out as well as fall in love with your music all over again? -Alexandria

I'm a huge fan of you and your work and consider you a role model of mine. I have a project in my Drama class that I'm currently working on, The project was to pick our favorite Celebrity and do research, and outline, a written report, and then eventually do a performance as our celebrity, either telling an interesting story or a musical performance, and of course for this project I've chosen to do you. (I'm terribly sorry if that sounds a bit creepy) Well, I've done lots of research, I've got a hole packet full printed out, but for my out line I'm miss a few bit's of information that I couldn't find such as Parents/siblings, birthplace/hometown, interest/hobbies, school/education, religion/beliefs, wealth/social class, networth, big break/first job, criminal records, addictions/disabilities, foundations, pets, health issues, etc. ( once again I apologize if this is fairly creepy) So, I'd grateful if you'd be willing to give me any information or such needed to help me with this project, please and thank you.

    Hey Voltaire and Orville! Voltaire, towards the middle of your "To the Bottom of the Sea" album, I always imagine it as one coherent story in a sort of frame-tale. This leads me to ask if you would ever consider writing a musical? Honestly, I think a lot of your songs would be even more lovely given a little theatrics. Of course I'm a theatre-major, so my brain usually thinks like that.

    Hey Voltaire,
    Just happen to discover you music thanks to youtube. I just wondered if you have ever seen the movie musicals Repo! the Genetic Opera or The Devil's Carnival? Your music reminded me of the songs in though movies. Would you ever work with Terrance Zdunich, the co-creator of the songs in those musicals, on his musicals?

    Thank you and just keep being awesome.

    It's been a while since the last Ask Voltaire installment but I'm hoping the concept is not dead. On Spooky Songs for Creepy Kids the song Crusade (probably my favorite BTW) is noted as Kids Version. Is there an adults or other version as I've not been able to locate one. Thanks Txxx

    Voltaire, I would notice from time to time that in some pictures or photo shoots of you, you have pointed ears. In other photo shoots I see you with normal ears (nothing wrong with that). I was wondering if you could give specific details on the name of piercing/body modification so I don't end up with huge elf ears when I just want a little point. Thank you

    Dear Voltaire, I saw a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic brony PMV (Pony Music Video) with your song Death Death Death Death (Devil, Devil, Evil, Evil, Songs). I later saw a comment that Voltiare, you, (obviously) posted saying some sort of compliment. Which made me wonder, are you a brony? Or at least a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? That's all I really wanted to know.

    Hi, Voltaire. :3 I have a question, that I hope you answer. I have a set of eight characters. Their names are Zombit, MasterMind, Tensha, Stitchel, Faiti, Peppa, Ven, and Pip. I use your songs, "Almost Human" and "Irresponsible" as Tensha and MasterMind's theme songs (if that's fine with you). Anyways, I plan on making them into little comics and other things when I get older. What should I start out with? You know, to get me started. I've already drawn them all, picked voices, and other things, but I don't know what I should do to get them notice and such. I'm sorry this is so lengthy. Thank you for reading though!

Speaking of violins, I'm wondering who the violinist is in "The Headless Waltz," which is one of my favorite of your songs, next to "Riding A Black Unicorn" of course, and "Graveyard Picnic." Also, just a side note, I love how fun you make the dark side of life sound. One more thing, I'm wondering if your song "Born Bad," is about someone being incarcerated? That's how I hear it.

    Greeting Voltaire, I know I've Asked this Question Already but posted it on the Wrong page, I didn't Know where to ask questions and Accidentally Put it somewhere else, so People might think this is a Spam (so Sorry), But I have a Question, Where do you get Inspiration for your Songs? Because I also want to Write songs within the lines of Steampunk and Goth, And Do you have any advice?

    Hello there Mr.Voltaire! umm. I've been a fan of yours for a while now and am SUPER excited to be sending you a fan letter... like.. never thought I would do that.. anyways. Even if you don't read this (cuz I guess you're busy doing Voltaire stuff right?) it still would be cool to send this electronic letter of mine. So, I recently had this dream of you. ( I know, weird right?) and you were wearing all white and sat in this grand velvet red chair and you were like, super cool and nice and you ate spaghetti and then you talked to me and I was like hey man and then you whispered something (can't remember what it was) and then I woke up. and yeah. The End. haha. Farewell.. *exits awkwardness*

    Dear Voltaire Would you ever consider making a Christmas album. I love your song "Santa Claus is Satan" and "Coming Out For Christmas" and "The Night Before Black Mass" are also great, and I'm sure if you set out to write a Christmas album, you'd make it sick and twisted and awesome! Like instead of singing about baby Jesus, you could sing about the baby Antichrist , or something like that Lot of love from Oklahoma City!

    Dear Voltaire, Now I think this comment section is actually for the last ask Voltaire episode, but whatever, I have a question. I have a huge crush on you. It's ridiculous. I think you have got to be one of the Sexiest most attractive men alive. But I think you are to old for me :( (not that I'm calling you old, I am just very young). My question is, what is your suggestion?

    You have an air of authenticity around you that I find very intriguing. You've mentioned being bullied as a kid multiple times. Do you have any advice for other formally bullied people on moving past the bullying and not internalizing what they've said? Sometimes it's really hard when I realize that most people will always think like the bullies did, they've just learned how to be more polite about it to my face. There is some truth to what they said, and I'll probably never have any friends, but I just can't help but be me, weird as I am. You really seem like someone who just can't help but be you, so I wondered if you had any thoughts.

Also, I would like to let you know that your music is pure poetry and it is such a big inspiration for my art, just like you are to me as a person. I hope to see you soon in Europe, it would be more than amazing. Love from Italy, Helena.

    hi Voltaire. i really do hope you still do these, because i am quite in need of an answer. in short i have always wanted to be a musician. the only problem, well, problems, are one: my voice. which, although i sing quite in tune, is just a very unusual.. accent. two: my outward self. it's not that i care about my looks, but more about my ability to appear shy and from there mess up on stage out of habit of hearing people telling me i can't perform if i have stage fright. which i don't. i just somehow appear like a very anxious person. three: my lack of instrumental ability, friends, and money. i own a ukulele, but i can't even play THAT very correctly. i've tried to get people who i considered friends to help me with the instrument part of it, but they don't really like my vision and my taste in music. plus i don't have much money to spend so i wouldn't be able to pay them anyway. please make a response video, i would really quite appreciate it. thank you, by the way, for making such good music.

I think it would really fit the dark aesthetic of the show, even though music choices for it are out of my power to really influence...
