Dear Mr. Brandon Boyd,
I think your voice is fantastic, and has gotten better as years have passed-like fine wine.
I have noticed you have recently switched microphones. Can you tell me what made you make the switch?
Also, before this album, you used to use a regular mic that would be taped with the cord bunched up-sort of a signature move I noticed as a spectator. Could you tell me why you used to do that? Did your cord get unplugged while preforming at an early gig? superstition or some other reason?

Hey Brandon! I've seen you frequently use a shure super 55 mic in live concerts, the question it's this one better than others mic, or it's just for good looking? cheers from Argentina
Some people think that you changed your "music style" in the last album, I thought the same, Why did you do that?
(I really love the last one, is AWESOME)
When Fungus Amongus was reissued, you mentioned being embarrassed while looking back at the songs (paraphrasing). More time has gone by between now and Make Yourself, for example, than the time between the Fungus reissue. What goes through your mind now while looking back at your earlier, more mainstream albums? Do you feel you've made as big of an artistic jump?
Do you ever look in the mirror and remind yourself of a 1989 - early 1990's Chris Cornell from Soundgarden and whisper a triumphant "yes" because of this?
On a serious note, other than the environment, oceans, and art what other issues are you passionate about or would like to get passionate about?
Do you regret any of your tattoos or your ear stretching ear plug ear hole things?
And I sent you a tweet a couple of weeks ago with a link to a video showing the lead singer of silverchair playing the guitar rather erotically and telling you to tell Mikey to play the guitar the same way? Did you get that tweet? If so, it was joke. You don't have to get mad.
Brandon! First, thank you for taking the time to do this. I'm blown away time and again by the effort you and the boys put into this thing of connecting with the fans. You've given us each a sense that we're personally connected to the band, for that we're incredibly thankful. To the questions!
1.) "If Not Now, When"? is one of the most inspirational and uplifting songs I've ever experienced. Yet, you've done it before with "The Warmth", "Drive", and others. How is it that one person possesses this majestic ability to utter words and phrases in tune, capable of changing millions of people's lives? My question is.. where does the inspiration for such life-enrichment come from? Where in the recesses of your soul does this power reside? Also,
2.) What is your favorite kind of pie?
You stir my soul, Mr. Boyd. Thank you, catch ya @ KFMA next month [=
Hi, Brandon. This may be kind of an odd question, but you seem to be a fan of Art Nouveau, so I've been wondering if you've ever seen a very beautiful thing called Afternoon of a Faun. Some of the moves you make onstage kind of remind me of it, as you can see in this photo. (Coincidentally, I believe that the guy who first produced it was a contemporary and huge admirer of Aubrey Beardsley.) Anyway, you and Incubus never cease to amaze. Thanks for being such tireless artists and for being so in touch with all of your adoring Incufans. ♥
