Charles Manson actually believed that the Beatles were fallen angels and that the White Album was an announcement of a big racial war upcoming. Manson believed Helter Skelter would be the name of that war (note that he once wanted to draw that line on the wall in the victims blood, but stupidly wrote Halta Skeltah instead of the correct spelling :rolleyes: ). He believed that, to prevent the black people from taking over the world, he had to stop them. To do this, he wanted to murder a few people (including actress Sharon Tate, famous enough to make the murders make world headlines) and then blame it on the black people so that they'd be arrested before they could take over the world. Manson believed he would then become the leader of the world, along with the Beatles and Satan. Also, he had the plan of reproducing himself with his cult members until they'd be enough to form a big army. Interesting sidenote is that the majority of cult members were female, probably the only mass murder case ever with a majority of female killers?

Anyway, Manson had completely lost his mind, it's a sad story of how someone completely lost sence of reality. He really believed and still believes in all that crap, and during parole hearings he made it clear he finds it injustice to be locked up while he claims to have tried to help mankind with his acts.

Also, the man tattooed a swastika on his own forehead, and is currently in a special prison cell after he was removed from the regular prison wing as he kept on attacking other inmates.

I really enjoyed the movie 300, very well done.

I was inspired to photoshop Morrissey in the lead role, I think it works, what do you think?

"Apacolypto"

i've watched it twice now.
the first time regular, the second time with the commentary by mel gibson and the co-author (who, by the way, stuck me as a cool guy, surprisingly enlightened).

so the first time i would give it maybe 6 or 7 out of ten stars. (i'm partial to period films like that)
but upon hearing the commentary, i was amazed. they really did their research. only a handful of people in the movie are actual actors. very little CGI. i might be willing to give it a strong 8 of 10 now.

anyone else see this movie?

In the area close to my new workplace we have a porn cinema :unsure: :ph34r: They have 3 halls even and from the looks of the hang-outs advertising their current screenings, the actresses are not bad at all :ph34r: Of course I won't watch anything there, imagine being caught by a colleague when entering a porn theatre. My reputation would be ruined before the Turkish adventure truly started...

Has anybody seen 24 Hour Party People? I loved the dry intellectualism of the main character-- which makes me hope he was like that in real life. Good film, but I had had it built up too much before I saw it so it maybe would have been better if that hadn't been so.

I saw the Australian premier of Black Sheep a couple of weeks ago and would highly recommend it to anybody0 ever. It is about genetically altered sheep that eat people. Enough said.

i am SO out of touch with movies...

recently public television has finally started a WWII series. it's fabulous. wrenching, but fabulous.
tuesday night i watchted it on my big screen and watched it while falling asleep in the bedroom.

i woke up startled and confused: the lights were on, the tv was on, and i hadn't a clue. it was 2:43 AM and the series was being repeated on the tele. :blink:
(it took me several moments to add all this up, mind you.)
today that weirdness caught up to me at work--twice.

:lol: :lol:

I'm suprised you've seen that Pashy, I would have thought it was only released over here, as it's so immersed in our culture. (Although living in Australia I'm sure you'll pick up quite a lot of British references, as they used to be in the commonwealth.)

One film I have watched a lot recently is Belleville Rendezvous. If you haven't seen it, I can't recommend it enough - it's such an original animation, with a really wonderful style, and the story conveyed using almost no dialogue at all. Even if you don't think you'd like it, I can't see how anyone would fail to be charmed by it, it's so beautiful. (In the US it's called Les Triplets De Belleville, I think.)

I live right by a more artsy film house-- gets a lot of stuff that I wouldn't be able to see anywhere else and I lurve it :)

And I must say that the film showed a completely different portrayal of England than I have ever seen... usually I just hear about how few violent crimes England has, this was the exact opposite.

Saw Irina Palm... Marianne Faithful giving handjobs to earn the $$ to save her dying grandson... strange film.

Also, saw Strummer the Future is Unwritten and I loved it-- have been listening to the Clash non-stop ever since.

And Air Guitar Nation... best film ever :-P. Although it is very Rah Rah America, I think it kind of had to be because it was like the Olympics of air guitar and I think they had to believe in the right of their country to compete in order to win... but it was funny how cautious people from all the different countries ended up being of one another.

The other day I saw just a few minutes of a movie that seemed to be pretty interesting or at least funny. There were this two little boys who loved cowboy movies and really wanted to be criminals, they were funny... I think they were irish... or mancunians or something like that... any clues? I know I don't have too much...
