Teatime Suffering

Teatime Suffering

QUESTION 1
is this working?
- asked by Axeman
Yes it is, but we have some minor technial problems, due to massive server overload ;)
QUESTION 2

Hey Emilie…

what kind of tea are you drinking? =)

- asked by BlackRose

Hello Sweets!

To start the day off right, this shall be the first question!

And of course it is green ginger.

Welcome all.

I havent slept in over 48 hours.

QUESTION 3
Can we ask our questions now, or should we wait?
- asked by JohnRockefeller

Oh, please do ask away!

Due to the amount of lovelies here were having a bit of difficulty keeping up, but well make it!

In the meantime, Id like you all to do me a favour and go and get one of your striped stockings and tie it around your neck. Thats what I did. Isnt it dandy?

QUESTION 4
How are you doing it that you dont need to sleep for such a long time? Id be sitting on my chair, unable to remember what for i could use this thing in front of me with all the letters on it (keyboard). ;)
- asked by Keiratha

Believe me, Im not at all sure what Im doing right now, Im just glad youre all here with me.

I do need sleep, but it doesnt need me.

QUESTION 5
maybe its a stupid question, but where do you find all you great ideas for creating your such dark and bewitching music, your clothes and evey thing you do?
- asked by rubbedoutzombie

From the dark corners of my broken soul.

Just kidding.

Kind of.

I just let myself exist in my most natural state and give myself the luxury of being as odd as I wish, and watch what happens.

QUESTION 6
How are the prettyful musics coming along? If only I had money. Oh. you know what. Come kidnap me. That would be nice. Well…hmm..yea….A bit awkward I suppose. Im sure my rents would *LOVE* you. *cough*
- asked by Cody
delightfully! stay awhile and youll get to hear some!
QUESTION 7
what type of men can be enjoyed by you?
- asked by rubbedoutzombie
none. I refuse to enjoy.
QUESTION 8
Are there some secrets in this chat? I see some words or an image slowly appearing just below your answers. Haha, or is my chat page screwed up?
- asked by EmilyRose
There are tons of secrets, were just getting warmed up…
QUESTION 9
Do you have any plans to come to the UK anytime soon? I cant wait to see you play
- asked by ChynaDoll
Thank you, yes indeed we do! Im waiting for the word to start making announcements over here, but in a few moments Ill let you in on the plan;)
QUESTION 10
what is your favorite kind of ice cream?
- asked by Lyndsay

best question ever.

Mint chip soy followed by chocolate caramel chai rice cream….

i hate you for bringing this up…

QUESTION 11
What is your big annoucement??? Were all dying to know!
- asked by CJK

theres about 5 of them!

theyre coming, just getting warmed up, muffins;)

did you all tie stockings around your necks?

QUESTION 12
Why is this newer album so much different than the last one?
- asked by Khameleon808
Its different because Im different. Im sure you are different than you were five years ago as well. Ive lived a lot of live since then, and my voice has grown up a lot. I was but a wee lassy when I made Enchant, and I love it, but I cant help what Ive become and my only obligation is to represent myself, at whatever point Im at, every time. I hope it is always different. Thats how you know Im real.
QUESTION 13

Hello Emilie! I love your scarf/sock.

Ive been a fan since Enchant and I really enjoy your victoriandustrial sound. I was wondering if you plan on continuing with this current style or branching out yet again with your next project.

- asked by meeka

I am very very comfortable with the vein Im in now, but I really cannot predict one note of what the future will hold, because Id be lying…

It really depends what happens in my life from now until then…

I write about the experiences I have…and I score those experiences with whatever sounds and colors seem to suit it best at the time.

That being said…I can tell you that the violin is getting more metal every day;) and I plan to kick ten times as much sweet sweet ass next time around, if its legal. Or not.

I hope youre wearing your neck sock.

QUESTION 14
While listening to “Dominant,” I was struck by how I could imagine it being used as a film score. Given your experience with playing as an entire orchestra in Metalocalypse, have you ever given thought to participating in the scoring of a film?
- asked by Greg

Absolutely, Ive studied scoring and composition for years at conservatoire…its all a matter of finding the right team to work with, because Im a control freak who gets violient when being told what to do… so Ill find a lovely director I can dominate, or Ill make my own;)

Whats funny about Dominant is that (and this is a secret) it was actually intended to have words in German, but I liked the instrumental version and so left it alone…but perhaps someday youll hear the chant…

QUESTION 15
How many were you expecting for tea today?
- asked by Spero
Not nearly as many as are here! I think well have to bake more scumpets!
QUESTION 16

hey emilie

what would be your all time favorite song???

- asked by miles

ahhhhhrrrrrrgggggyyyyyyooooooo…

it would be….

I think…

“My Thing Is My Own”

Google it….

QUESTION 17
i tied stockings, now can u rewards me :)?
- asked by omi

Indeed I can!

But you have to send a pic.

You ALL do…

Not joking…

Here is your reward!

We are embarking on a world tour, the Bloody Crumpets, me, and some special friends…most of it is still being confirmed with plans changing daily, but this is what weve got so far!

QUESTION 18
Do you smoke?
- asked by Sophie
Certainly not…filthy habit…enjoyed by libertines and fallen women…
QUESTION 19
emilie, dahlin, how did you finally get noticed as someone with extraordinary talent? (for i am somewhat on the musician path, but finding it rather… tedious and stressful. as expected.)
- asked by erin

Ah yess…I sympathize…

Thats just it though, I didnt get noticed, I noticed myself. Nobody gave me anything ever. I simply got out and did what I did without caring if anybody was interested or not;), and only then did people very kindly begin caring. But I had to make it happen first, on my own.

Never ask permission.

QUESTION 20
This might be somewhat unusual, but what does an exquisite musician like yourself think of the drums?
- asked by Antihero
drums are useful tea tables if lapdogs arent available…
QUESTION 21
What would you say is your greatest musical infulence?
- asked by Mocker

I am influenced more by other art forms than I am by music to be quite honest…I listen to music to enjoy music, but to be influenced, I go to a play or read a book…

Of course, I cant escape the influence of my training, which is all wonderful dead classical people…I think I always go back to that…

QUESTION 22
“did you all tie stockings around your necks?” YES MAAM! Well..mines a stripey scarf…but the desired affect is achieved!
- asked by nevina

Wonderous good!!

if you all send pic of your stocking necks, Ill post them on my journal tomorrow…

or better yet!

leave them as mySpace comments!!!!

http://www.myspace.com/emilieautumn

QUESTION 23
Are you planing to sleep when the chat is over or do you still have more things to do after the chat?
- asked by Keiratha
I am praying for sleep to come, honestly…horrible horrible treacherous insomnia…
QUESTION 24

Dear Emilie, I do worry about you sometimes…with the lack of sleeping.

To ask a question — how does one solve the Enchant puzzle these days? Ive been working on it but there doesnt seem to be a place to enter answers anymore. Also, what are you drinking?

Yes I have a stocking round my neck. Its 6am and Im in bed but I have the stocking on ^^

- asked by Katrina

No worries sweet, Im made of corset boning and whole wheat scones…

Oh! The Enchant puzzle…with the redesign of the website, the page was temporarily taken down, but were putting it back up shortly…thing is though, you dont enter the answers, thats the trick…you must do it another way…

Thank you for your lovely stocking neck! Tea for you!

Ive got ginger tea…

QUESTION 25
Do you put subliminal messages in your songs? Listening to them makes me feel very confident and able to tackle anything! Is this your plan for world domination?
- asked by NeonHamster

Im very glad they have this effect on you!

Im not sure if the messages are subliminal, usually I layer the meanings hoping like made that somebody will notice, so Im not necessarily being secretive about it…

Theres a song you will hear in the chat today (SOON! were waiting for the music to be up) that has literally three meanings all running through it at the same time, and you can connect with either story, or none, depending on what kind of tea youre drinking and how tight your corset is…

QUESTION 26
Hi there!!! Out-of-place question, but what do you think about the Harry Potter books, sweetheart? Do you like them?
- asked by crumple-hornedswan

Funny you should ask, I just saw Jesus Camp (wonderful, you should all go and see it twice), and was inspired to read them all as quickly as possible. If youve seen JC, youll know why.

Ive not gotten to them yet, but Im in the Asylum form right now of a dear one who has the books on the shelf behind me and loves them very much…

QUESTION 27
Where do you place your muse?
- asked by JaggedSerenity
Under my skirt.
QUESTION 28
Where did you get the lovely shiny pretty on your neck Emilie?
- asked by Luke
It was a gift from Billy Corgan…an antique Im not certain from when but long long ago…
QUESTION 29
Emilie, Do you have some tips for a beginning violist?
- asked by Tesana

burn it!

NOOOOOOOOOO….dont do that….

Use good rosin, listen to different kinds of music, build up some nice unsightly calouses, and learn the Bach Brandenburg Viola duet so we can play it!

QUESTION 30
Is much of your musics striking resemblance to certain Mendelssohn deliberate of just another influence that creeps in? And are there any plans to release any sheet music? Im sure there are many more of us whod love to play some of your wonderful pieces :)
- asked by Rebecca

Thank you, and yes, sheet music has been in the works for literally years now and I keep getting distracted, Im terribly sorry about this…

Mendelssohn was my first crush, and Im supposedly his sister reincarnated, so Im not surprised by the association musically, but no, its not intentional…

Did you know that FM has a violin concerto that he wrote when he was 13 that hardly anyone knows about? I found it when I was thirteen and got to perform it while conducting the orchestra at the same time…one of the best days of my life…

QUESTION 31
Do you really exist? You arent just a corporate invention with the perfect mix of talent, wit, beauty, brains, suffering and style? It just seems too good to be true.
- asked by Mr.Witherspoone
No, I do not exist. In fact, I was manufactured entirely by the good people at Celestial Seasonings as and undercover agent/sales militia…I am also filled with explosives that may for off at any time, so lets all enjoy it while we can…
QUESTION 32
so do you do anything for fun?
- asked by grant

Yes! I break hearts, do nude photo sessions, the occasional murder when its justified or at least aesthetically pleasing, and I chat with you lovlies!

I also make announcements like this one:

- asked by ElectricSage

His name is Ernie the Dog and he dresses like me sometimes…

Hed like to say hello to you all from the Asylum…

Orkus Festival Tour 03/2007

QUESTION 39
Do you believe in ghosts?
- asked by GothFaerieQueen
QUESTION 40
After you are done performing at a show what do you do?

That and fuck some groupies.

Kidding.

QUESTION 41
When will I be able to buy your new music?
- asked by Vega

QUESTION 42
Hi, Emilie. :) How is your tea? Id like to ask how your inspiration for song wordings comes up.. is it just “Hey, what about this..” or is it more of a one-hit thought?
- asked by Mochan

Its really just the formulation of ideas in my head, trying to put them together in a way that expresses a particular concept or emotion in the least clumsy way possible;)

Its easy when you have a story to tell, and you know what its about, and you know exactly what it is youre trying to say…writing is only difficult when you have nothing to write about and people can always tell…

QUESTION 43
so during your tour do you plan on being in southern calif? if so what date do you have that information yet.. i would really love to see you live in southern calif… please i am suffering..lol
- asked by robbie

YES!

Did you see the tour post below?

See you soon!

QUESTION 44
you are american?
- asked by bob
Indeed. My father was a circus performer from Germany, and I am decended from the Liddells on my mothers side, of Scotland originally…Alice in Wonderland…
QUESTION 45
Are all of your lyrics supposed to make sense? Should I feel stupid for not getting half of them? Whats the murder where nobody dies in Gothic Lolita?
- asked by WayneMV

Thats like asking if ice cream is supposed to taste good. It is, but only if you like ice cream. If you dont, its horrible. if youre allergic to it, its potentially even fatal…wow…never thought about that before…

I can tell you that I dont write gibberish lyrics, every word has a very direct and specific meaning, sometimes more than one…

I believe that the beauty of poetry of any kind however is that it can mean different things to different people, so the most important question I would ask is, what does it mean to you?

QUESTION 46
I hope nobody send this question before: you plan to play in Germany?
- asked by Paddi

Yes, and very soon too!

See the tour dates below!!

QUESTION 47
I have a question, youre the shit.
- asked by roberts0120

Thank you very much.

Try making the Mochi, theyre the shit too.

QUESTION 48
What are you made off?
- asked by Justbleed
sugar and spice and everything nice…
QUESTION 49

Dear Emilie,

This may seem like a slightly random question but since its around Halloween time; What is your favorite Halloween movie? And do you plan on doing anything special for Halloween as well?

Also, if you wished to make a song for just Halloween and you had to base it on one murderous person in history, who would you sing about? If I had singing talent I would most likely sing about ErzseŽbet Ba‡thory but alas; I can only draw and doodle. :)

- asked by Raven
I am working on a project with Attrition (I hope its OK that I mention this) that is based on the life of Mary Ann Cotton. I think thats pretty brutal…
QUESTION 50
Can you actually PROVE this isnt a computergenerated program answering questions?
- asked by vampiricangel
Can you actually PROVE that you are not a coward who hides behind a keyboard and questions the reality of someone who puts their life and soul into their art?
QUESTION 51
so how about showing us the t-shirt … there was a note about modelling …
- asked by wavwrunner

did you see the pic below?

Not me modeling, but check the journals tomorrow…I didnt have the time to post the pics, but they are as promised if you know what I mean…

QUESTION 52

Ive seen some pictures of you with extraordinarily long hair…how long did it get at longest, and ddi you corn-row brain it and style it all by yourself for concerts? I loved those styles, and I love your awesome punk hoodie look now.

I want to spenda lifetime comparing all my poetry to yours. :)

- asked by Katrina

Thank you;)

It used to be knee length, but then I discovered that when I get angry I like to cut things.

I’m not allowed to have scissors any more.

Its still pretty lengthy, but Ive been threatening to shave half of it for the past week and nobody seems to believe me…

I do it all myself though because I scream when Im touched and that scares people.

QUESTION 53
Suppose Peter Murphy and Morrissey were to engage in battle against eachother. Who would win?
- asked by Befu
Both would because they would dissolve into a puddle of sweet dripping sarcasm on the 17th century oak flooring and sing lullabies into eachothers ears for all of eternity…
QUESTION 54
Brendon Small has a dog named Ernie too…
- asked by roberts0120
Why yesssssss, how funny you should mention that…
QUESTION 55
Well, i am actually new to your music, but from what i have heard, the sound is great, and i also recently heard your music on a Metaloclypse Episode, i am sorry if this question was already asked, but, how was your experience with that?
- asked by Puppet

Awesome.

Glad youre here!

Ive been behind the scenes of Metalocalypse since it was in its early sketch stages, and its briliant to watch it grow into a hit show filled with massive talent and literaly insane humor…

Its also great to work with your friends…a rare pleasure in this business…

Did you see the tracklisting for the new EP? Brendon Small has returned the favor and is planning to slay you all with his Dethklok flavored “Murder Mix” of LIAR! Beware…he doesnt think you all can handle it, but I told him you could…make me proud muffins…

QUESTION 56
If you were introduced to Britney Spears at a music thing, what would happen? lol Fight or flight?
- asked by Kris

Wed probably tongue kiss for a while (even though shes totally not my type), and then Id throw down THIS motherfucker and she would cry…:

Liar (Medical Mix by Angelspit)

SURPRISE NO. 5 (I think, Ive lost track)…

An absolutely INSANE remix by my brilliant and fucking lunatic friends Angelspit from Australia!!!!! You can download this in sadly low quality mp3 (we prepared them for streaming)

Vampires are lame.
- asked by Draegn
Good point.
QUESTION 61
I bought the limited edition version of Opheliac and I cant access any of the videos that are supposed to be on it. What program do I need?
- asked by Spero
it is on the second disc. When you insert the disc into a CD-R computer drive two volumes will open. 1.) Audio CD (8 tracks), 2.) PC/MAC Volume. The gallery (pdf) and videos (mp4). You need Acrobat Reader for the gallery and a new version of Quicktime for the Video files. Thats it!
QUESTION 62
Do you ever think of dying your hair pink again?
- asked by blablabla
Its literally a different shade of pink/red/orange every week, so the magic 8-ball says…yes…
QUESTION 63
Are we going to get to hear some songs soon?

QUESTION 65
How can I join the bloomer brigade?
- asked by Tahra
Go to the main website and look around for a link to the signup page, and welcome! One muffin for you!
QUESTION 66
Oh please visit Finland! I had a dream a week ago where you rode to the Olympic stadium on and old Soviet tank, dressed as an old Soviet superhero called Captain Atom, with your hair arranged around your head like the orbits of electrons around the nucleus of an atom, while Dominant was playing as the concert intro.
- asked by Tapio
Whom can we pitch that to to make it come true? I do plan on seeing you soon, as you can see in the tour dates posted below, but Id really like to have my tank ready and waiting, so if anybody knows how we can make this happen, contact my label please…
QUESTION 67
if i were really a rainbow Zebra and no body loved me because i was different would you write a song about my stripes to make me feel better with your beautiful music ;__;?
- asked by yram
Already have. Its called What If from Enchant and its alllll about zebras. Enjoy, cupcake…
QUESTION 68
If you would be so kind as to lend us a moment of your precious time, empress, we wondered if you could assist us with a little detail which has been bothering us lately. Does your highness have any suggestions on how a devoted crumpet cursed to the dullest of genders could express its femininity appropriately as a wayward victorian?
- asked by Imaginary
Aha! Of course. I highly recommend filthy tophats, canes which will be taken from you at clubs, and limp of seriously questionable origin. I do tend to support the manskirt, and also the spat. Welcome!
QUESTION 69
speaking of Australia… do you have plans to come down here? I do want to see one of your performances oh so much!
- asked by screwedpixie
Ive been dying to for years! Note to booking agent…you know, cupcakes, the more of you want a show in a particular area, the easier it is for us to make it happen…we go where were wanted, so if theres a scene and were in demand, were there!
QUESTION 70
Why can’t I get in to the Asylum?
- asked by Frida

They will shortly, and you will then get to see what a victoriandustrial girl does for fun, and it shant be for the weak of heart I warn you…

QUESTION 71
What do you use to dye your hair?
- asked by sakura
The blood of my enemies…
QUESTION 72

Yes this is a hehehehehe school girl lol

- asked by miles
Yes, and I have just bought the complete works of Sigmund Freud on your credit card….
QUESTION 73
Hi Emilie! :D I put the picture of my stocking-clad neck i a comment on your myspace, as youve ordered. My question is, what kind of literature do you like? What books, comics, etc? Im positive youve got some great recommendations for us all!
- asked by meaganb

Oh, thank you!!!! I want that comment page FILLED with stocking necks, do you all hear??

Ah literature…and the luxury of reading time I miss so…well, you know already Im a history buff and a Shakespeare snob, so theres that, so I read anything that resembles a historical biography, but I also do a lot of research, which I love maybe more than anything…psychological textbooks, hospital records…just trying to draw connections where I suspect they might be…;)

Oh Scob! Do you mind if I reheat my poor tepid tea?? Ill be right back, promise!

QUESTION 74

Hi!

Seeing as youve already been asked what your favourite song is, what would your favourite play be?

QUESTION 75
Is it okay to tie two socks around your neck too? Cause its warm and comfortable… Socks are multifunctional!
- asked by Raven

QUESTION 76
Aw…these pictures are hard to get to. One cant click on the ilnk, one has to type it in. Could youtry to rectify that maybe?
- asked by Katrina
Ill try, weve got an absolute genius over here who put this Chat together and is trying to keep up with the amount of people on the servers right now, but Ill see what we can do…
QUESTION 77
Why does the mirror-thingy in the corner keep doing the red-spinning thing? xD
- asked by Nickeh!
its reloading the Asylum webcam…
QUESTION 78
How long is this chat going to run? =)
- asked by Kris

Until I physically shut down or start crying…we still have a lot more secrets to tell…

And, are you all realllly ready to hear another track? Hm, probably not. Yes, I don’t wish to rush you. Youre probably not ready…

QUESTION 79
Hi I got introduced to your music when you played with Avoidance of Doubt do you work with other bands a lot?
