Manson Gets Letter From Manson

2012-09-22 by Alex Beebe | 54 Comments
Controversial shock rock superstar Marilyn Manson has recently received a strange letter
from infamous criminal Charles Manson. The letter was written to Marilyn from Charles
Manson's jail cell, and the message is quite bizarre, and written in a deranged, and
somewhat cryptic fashion.
Further information on this story, and the letter in its entirety can be read here:

So yeah, the letter is about as batshit insane as you'd expect from a senile psychopath who's been in jail for more than half his life. It's pretty fascinating though, and pretty hilarious because of how little sense it makes. Also, I'm VERY proud of myself for this article's title lol.

Dear Charles Manson,

Do you fancy writing letters in different languages and then having Google Translate to, well, translate them back into English? I'd like to think this, but perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree.

@tlob Yeah, there's gonna be that one guy no doubt. But whatever, I thought this was cool news worth
mentioning. Charles Manson communicates with Marilyn Manson. I think that's interesting enough to be
worthy of bringing it to people's attention via the news.

^ well, I can't imagine he gets too much exposure to pop culture in prison, plus he's insane.

Maybe the who reason behind this was Charles writing lyrics for Manson and hoping he'd make it into a song lol. Maybe that's the master plan.

Yeah, I know he didn't murder anyone. I probably should have said criminal instead.

He pusuaded the other people to do the killing, and he's in gaol for that reason so he's still a murderer.

Whatever, fuck it. I know that, I know he didn't technically physically kill anyone, and I figured
that would come up the comments, but I really don't give a shit. It's a news article, I wanted to make
it brief, and calling him a "serial killer" is shorter than saying "a man who was in charge of mass
murder because he brainwashed his cult into doing the killing for him".

I once ate lunch with Charles Manson. At one point he said, "Is it hot in here or am I crazy?"

I just read it, and it was crazy. It seemed like he was saying he either wants money from Marilyn Manson, or he wants to be his opposite, or something like that. Who knows? Charles Manson is crazy.

"@North0House2 I'm very curious to know what he's trying to say. Care to give your interpretation?"

To me, it seems pretty straightforward. I think he's basically telling Marilyn Manson to either man up and own up to the name he's trying to take, and that the two aren't one in the same. Manson also seems to be quite peeved that his name is being used by a man who's obviously feeding into society one way or the other (and we all know how much Manson hates society)

That's what I was figuring, at least.
