Fans are asking some great questions via Anthony's new mailing list, and here are a few of his answers!
What is your favorite tattoo and why?
I don't have a favorite tattoo anymore than I have a favorite arm or leg! They are all memories and representations of my life, and the life that I have shared with others... it is so hard to play favorites in that.
What's your favorite album of all time and why?
Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins. This album has it all, from torture to beauty, from kick-in-the-face rock-riffs to psychedelic dreamscapes, unabashed weakness to relentless strength. And probably most important, contextually, the album came into my life when my world came crashing down around me as a preteen: my simultaneous criminal exile from swimming and revelation of my tourette syndrome, alongside my propensity for escape from home life and socialization with other young delinquents. This abstraction doesn't really do justice to what is not a simple question.
