This reminds me of the time...


Mother Mary just after she said to her new friends, "Gee, this reminds me of the time I was in The Manson Family and we were all sitting around just like this during the Spahn Ranch raid. Man, do I wish we had some Orange Sunshine!"



Thank you, racestarr for the new Mary pic!

You know what? For being a fair-skinned blonde, MB has aged okay. One would think that she would of wrinkled like a catcher's mitt from being exposed to sun without protection back in the day, but lo and behold: no excessive skin damage....On a different note, I wonder if those ladies sitting with her in this photo know that the woman sitting with them had assisted in a smothering???

Or had Manson's child, or slept with half of SoCal, or shot at cops, or did time, or...

Family Guy episode, Brian Goes Hollywood:

Peter reveals that he hadn't been to California since he lived with his other family. In the clip that follows, we see Peter entering the hideout where Charles Manson and his followers lived. The bearded guy in the middle is meant to be Charles Manson.

Peter also says "guys I just got invited to a party in Sharon Tate's house. Now you guys can come, but you have to promise not to embarrass me." This refers to 9 August 1969 when the Manson family went on a murderous rampage and brutally killed pregnant actress Sharon Tate and her famous house guests.

Can't find a video clip for it online...

Here’s the Family reference from ‘Family Guy’, it starts at (4:20) like I didn’t see that one coming:

Family Guy Manson

Jiri said...

Hahahaha! Nice find, Farflung! I wonder how many people watching the show actually got that?

Matt said...

It almost looks like she's camping out for concert tickets. The portable chairs, food, water & blankets...

Look at that woman passed out on the sidewalk.

Is that the WalMart version of Charlie's vest that she is wearing?

Not to sound judgemental, but bangs don't really work on older women. They make her look butch. That is a hockey player hair-cut, but then it is Wisconsin.

It would be nice to have some context for some of Mary's photos. I don't think this is a concert line, but it does seem Mary became a bit of a community activist. Of course that is just a guess. They could be camping out for WWF tickets.

PSSS LOVE YU LIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ I emailed yu about something imp:P

leary7 said...

Candy, I am all for civility on these blogs but let's not get hypersensitive. I was obviously joking about the vest. And I've never been one to say Mary is unnattrative, just the opposite. But I do think her haircut is unflattering. And if you can't express your opinion on a blog where can you?
I've always enjoyed your posts, Candy.

no worries leary

In line for concert tickets, was my first thought. But there is no concert-goer vibe to that photo. Then I thought of those "Black Friday" shopping lines, where people camp out all night in front of Best Buy, Wal Mart, etc., to be the first to stampede into the store when the doors open, grabbing the limited number of highly-advertised electronics bargains.

Season, I'm sorry. I had to delete your comment. We don't disclose where anyone may be living. Please feel free to repost without mentioning a city :)

candy and nuts said...

Seems like most of these "Manson women" all aged quite well still fairly thin, not very wrinkled maybe Spahn Ranch had something in the water there...

Season said...

My apologies, I wasn't thinking.

Matt said...

No prob, Season. It happens...

Panamint Patty said...

@Candy, I tend to agree with you. Perhaps its the vegetarianism? Friends of my mother's who look the youngest are longtime vegetarians who are into yoga and/or tai chi.

Panamint Patty said...

Me, I like me some meat. LOL

orwhut said...

After all these years, Mary is still sitting on the sidewalk with the girls. Maybe she misses the court house.

Reason for bangs: To hide the X?

leary7 said...

Damn, hippiechick, I am such a dunce idiot I didn't even think of that. Bangs to hide the X. SOunds like a good line from a punk rock song.

Since Liz posted this I have been thinking of Mary. One thing I wonder about is the old "what if" - what if the silent alarm hadn't be triggered at Hawthorne and Gypsy and Mary and the Three Stooges had gotten away. Was there really a plan to attack the Shea trial and free Charlie? If there was such an operation being planned, who was in charge? Had Como asserted himself? Or was Lynn calling the shots. Or was Mother Mary the platoon leader?
One of my favorite TLB vignettes is Chuck Lovett actually escaping the Hawthorne shootout zig zagging down the alley and through backyards. He must have been trippin on his good fortune. I forget how he was eventually caught. He should have just kept zig zagging to Mexico.

leary just a note to you about something you recently said about someone on a blog being self absorbed ( Im sure you know what I mean), its obvious that her comments gained much sympathy and attention, albeit she tried to put the whole issue on " someone hurt her feelings" ) didnt want to post it there because Im not gonna feed into all the BS but you were very correct in your assertation of that person...
