A Day In The Life Of Tex........

Ol' Tex discussing blaming his actions on Manson in this old interview that is posted on his ridiculous website, aboundinglove.org.

Here's the link

Gag me with a spoon! I am assuming this interview was conducted in 2003, since he was 58 at the time. There isn't anything revealing, or remarkable in it, if you ask me. Funny how he doesn't mention a damn thing about his participation in Shorty's murder. He specifically mentions just feeling bad about the 7 murders he participated in, and how God has forgiven him. His website also reports on his prison activities such as ministering fellow inmates on the yard, running his church, writing newsletters, and even drawing incredible, life-like furry & fuzzy pussies. I wonder if he does that by memory, since, technically, he did see a lot of that same subject matter out at Spahn's ranch, right?

See what I mean:




Tex's website also includes a movie review from the last piece-of-caca Helter Skelter movie they made starring Jeremy Davies. He even had a rating system attached to the review at the bottom. How does he find the time?

Tex's Helter Skelter movie (2004) review:

I question the need for another "Helter Skelter" movie. These crimes, which I deeply regret, were atrocious. It was a tragedy not only for the victims, but for their families, to whom I eternally and humbly apologize. I owe a debt to society that I can never repay, but I can pass along insights for constructive purposes with what's left of my life. I am saddened to see the hunger our society has for this phenomena. One day, I believe this evil will be overcome by good.

This new version, by writer-director John Gray, will be responsible for awakening and shaping the minds and beliefs of a new generation concerning the Manson family. The true sense of what Manson personified could only be known by his former followers, who know how they were manipulated. I feel after the movie, viewers were still asking themselves how and why? It seems Gray had his own agenda in mind, focusing more on externals, instead of helping his audience to understand the internal transformation that took place in the hearts of Manson's followers to carry out such savage acts.

This movie distorted the characterization of Manson and his former followers, but in all fairness, we were told it was dramatized and fictionalized at the start. CBS's executive producer Mark Wolper told TV Guide, "We want to create a film that was really, really scary to overcome the retro-cult fascinated with Manson." In my view, greater emphasis should have been given to the deceptive philosophy of Manson rather than emphasizing "scariness." If the purpose was to empower people to not be enticed by cults; I question the ability to scare people straight. Instead viewers left the movie fearful, with Manson's face embedded in their minds. To protect impressionable minds and overcome cult fascination, sound belief systems must be developed based on a loving God who satisfies a longing soul. To the contrary, this movie has now enflamed the world with fear and hatred, from this presentation of the Manson Family's demonic wave of horror.

The mistake is often made to show Manson as a hyper, long haired, arm waving, wild man. This was his court persona and how we see him acting out in interviews after the crime. Because the movie started one month before the crimes, in July, 1969, the timeline did not allow the viewers to see the progressive change in Manson for the previous year, after his release from prison. At that time, he was calm, young looking, personally charismatic, with short hair (at first). He gradually changed to a madman, able to deceive his followers. This gradual change, we all experienced was sadly missing; so the viewers were left asking themselves how these kids could be turned into killers. At one point in this movie, even Vincent Bugliosi questioned this.

This movie depicts Manson as a drug-crazed, want-to-be rock star, who sends his groupies out to kill in anger and revenge to start "Helter Skelter". If he appeared like that to us from the start, we would never have followed him. Those willing to die for Manson, were not willing to die for the madman portrayed in the movie, but for a man whose philosophy deceived us. I was in turmoil when I realized his philosophical doctrines were all lies, designed to enslave us to his plan.

We see exactly the same thing when we see terrorists lay down their lives for a cause of their leader. The suicide bombers have come to believe the philosophy they have been taught by their charismatic leaders. The world sees their leaders as crazy lunatics and can't understand why anyone would follow them, especially parents who offer their children to the cause.

The Manson family was made up of young adults who were depressed, with spiritual and psychological problems, often coming from dysfunctional families. We were often hungry, eating from garbage cans, a dirty bunch, bathing in creeks or taking cold showers at best. We were a small, lost, demonized cult of 16 hard-core followers and several drifters, who lacked identity and acceptance. We were looking for answers from Manson. After it was too late, we found he had no answers, only a mixture of philosophies he manipulated to make us believe we were much more than we were.

The role of drugs and music were under emphasized, relative to Manson's ability to capture our beliefs and deceive us. The drugs caused us to become gullible with an openness to accept his ideas. His music helped to hypnotize us, making us willing to do anything he requested for the cause of "Helter Skelter". Charlie sung the family into a trance while on drugs, but the actor in the movie, Jeremy Davies, hardly ever sang. I was surprised that the movie depicted me as sniffing methamphethetamine in the car before the final crime. Actually, I did this before leaving the ranch. The actor portraying me did not look as young as I did and walked with more maturity and authority. I was aloof, a heavy thinker, mesmerized by the philosophy of Manson's mission and drug crazed as seen from my jail photo while on the hallucinogenic plant belladona.

Jeremy Davies' did a superb job imitating Manson in the scene on the beach, wildly explaining the "Helter Skelter" philosophy. More scenes of this nature may have helped the viewer to understand Manson's twisted logic. But in reality, does any of it make sense? Even Manson himself would have us believe that, "No sense, makes sense!"

Manson's deceptive "Helter Skelter" philosophy depicted his true motive for the crime, not his anger towards Terry Melcher, Doris Day's son, who would not give Charlie a recording contract. In the "Helter Skelter " chapter of my book, Will You Die For Me?, I share other motives, those being: a copycat murder to free Bobby Beausoleil from jail, a connection the prosecution failed to acknowledge at first; and to obtain money to finance "Helter Skelter" and to pay Mary Brunner's bail. These were the motives. Manson became impatient to prove his "Helter Skelter" philosophy, so he saw his opportunity to start it by choosing Melcher's residence, although he knew he no longer lived there. I was surprised the script showed Manson going to the residence the night before the murders and being offended, because I was not aware of that until years later.

I felt Vincent Bugliosi's book, "Helter Skelter", written in 1974, was about 85% accurate in its portrayal of what it covered. It's much more difficult to portray character traits. The movie did tell the story, but roles were overplayed, especially Susan Atkins, and there were factual errors. For instance: ID's were not all put in one box. Dogs did not eat before the family did. No spotlights were at the ranch. The $5000 was given to me by Linda, and I gave it to Manson. Many times I wish I had left and gone back to Texas with that money. I'm certain many others do too. There were no girls kissing one another, and there were no orgies as depicted. The girls wore no make up and were not Hollywood dolls. Dennis' beach house was not on the beach. Spahn's ranch had no lake. I don't remember Manson ever physically abusing the girls. As far as the crime is concerned, Manson gave me the specific orders on a long walk that night. The phone wire was cut away from the house on the left side of the road. The car was parked far down the hill. It was extremely difficult to carry out Manson's orders. No one enjoyed what they were doing, like the girls were portrayed as doing. After the crime, we reported to Manson in the bunk house, very low-key with him not happy, and there was no celebration by the family in front of a television.

My book Will You Die For Me? shares a view from someone who was there. It describes these crimes chronologically from audio recordings made just four months after the murders occurred. It appears some of the research for the movie must have come from my writings. I can speak of the crimes today, because they are behind me. I face my past truthfully, with a healthy identity. But still, the enactment left me drained, butterflies and knots in my stomach and deeply saddened by the pain I have caused, even though that person who killed so freely is not alive any longer. He died spiritually and is now forgiven, and made new by the righteous sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

I've also tried to present additional insights in my new book Manson's Right-Hand Man Speaks Out! This book consists of my answers to over 200 interview questions I am most often asked. The movie fails to tell the powerful story of how a convicted killer can change and after all these years become an asset to others with him in prison. The movie presents the bad news, but shouldn't we look for some good news in the midst of such agony? It is seldom told how one of the victim's family member portrayed in the movie has forgiven me. These are stories of hope, rather than the perpetuation of Manson's evil ideas. For this reason, the Christian outreach of www.aboundinglove.org was created.

Overall, the movie was fairly accurate in its representation of what we were willing to do, and what we did for Manson. The Manson case has taken on a life of its own. It does not deserve all of this attention. The story does not end with the arrest, conviction and incarceration of those caught up in this story. The pain will never completely go away, but at the same time for some of us, there has been a new beginning based upon the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

ANN: Where do all the good people, who do bad things, go? CHURCH - to be forgiven !

IF Manson was a monster "manipulator" hiding under a cloak of evil, WHAT really made certain members of the Manson Family so PRIMED for manipulation that they were willing to commit the ultimate SIN for JESUS ?

What significant fact is also missing from TEX's explanation ?

The THRILL and EXCITEMENT of being a participant in something BIGGER than his own life.

August 29, 1970 stands out in my life as the most "thrilling" day of my entire life. Talk about HIGH - without any drugs.
It was the day Leo and I went filming the Chicano Moratorium - where Ruben Salazar was assassinated. In the RIOT, on Whittier Blvd, cop cars were racing to the Park. Rioters were tearing apart bus benches and taking the two by six planks - tossing them in the air - in such a way so that they would smash right through the front wind shield of the cop cars. Because we were right across the street - WE were in imminent danger of being KILLED. As we hid on the ground, I would try to reach up and get some film shots. But projectiles would be wizzing by at supersonic speeds. The film would have been like nothing anybody had ever seen, but it was NOT worth dieing for. But the HIGH of being in a death defying situation is like nothing else on this earth. It's like having a cup of coffee with Jesus and the Devil at the same time.

Nobody seems to understand HOW an American boy can join-up with the EVIL ISIS militants. Well, it's called experiencing a HIGH like you can only get from standing at the edge of the ABYSS.

The Final Conflict - the Battle of Armageddon - a Black and White race WAR - the Black Muslim revenge.

Arm in Aam the Manson Gang STOOD at the edge of the ABYSS with all the BIBLE's vision's of granduer before them.

NOW - that's a TRIP !

"..I don't remember Manson ever physically abusing the girls..."

I suppose Tex was probably on one of the several ill fated attempts to re-integrate himself with LA society while Charlie was using Dianne Lake as a punching bag.

CrisPOA said...

You know Tex is a mysterious character for me. Seems to me he was this handsome and attractive young man trying to live the good high life in California and somehow got lost on the way, specially on drugs. But how he got from druggie to murderer? Was it all inside him waiting to come out? Was all that triggered by drugs? Or by Manson?I've read so many times about drugs triggering psychopatic behavior. Was it all pure evil on his part? Who knows.

The people who knew him before TLB said he was a nice guy. I've read so many of his letters in prison where he seemed really trying to fix his life or what had lasted of it. He talks about his marriage, having children and of course, being a christian.
And then i read that after some 20 years he got divorced, had worked with Bruce Davis in the chapel...whatever.
But still i'd like to believe that people can be redeemed, and be forgiven. By us, the society? Not really. For his crime he could only hope God could forgive. That is - IF he really repented.
It puzzles me.

And i thought his drawings nice..

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

Mr Hendrickson, for me that's one of the most thought-provoking things you've written here. To be an active participant in Armageddon... or sell wigs for a living.... tough choice.

Damn, you've actually made a kind of sense of it. Stop that!

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

CrisPOA - I understand where you're coming from, I really do - and I do believe in forgiveness also. But yes, we don't have the right to forgive someone else's murder. The families and the Creator are the only parties with skin in that game.

The fact that Tex has had time and space in which to 'fix his life' only underscores for me the fact that Steven Parent's life cannot be fixed, nor Rosemary LaBianca's. And in that sense, society has a moral and/or practical duty to dismiss his repentance and 'growth' as being something between his conscience and the Divine.

Hi Chris...

Tex is quite possibly the scariest bastard who ever lived...

He is everything they say Charlie is, and worse. Charlie was a much older, career criminal who most smart people could see coming a mile away. Texas the guy sitting next to you in algebra class who smiles at you, and you assume he is normal or just like you, and you never see him coming...

Did you know that when he was first interviewed after arrested by a Psych doc- he laughed and said it " Was fun tearing up the Tate place- they were all running around like chickens with there heads torn off" ???

that might give you some insight into the person who is Charles Watson. ( if 70 plus stab wounds and killing a pregnant women isnt enough)

Tex is a self serving, responsibility ducking, chicken shit cock-sucker- who ran and hid his entire life if you want to bother to read about it.... He had every advantage that almost none of the other members of the family didn't- a good family- an education ... go check out the Tex Watson bio sometime. and yet it was he who went the most bat-shit crazy when given the chance....


But I guess the pics are cute lol

;)

Tex scares the hell out of me. What he did to those people, INCLUDING Shorty Shea is beyond horrendous. Susan Atkins even said she thought there was something supernatural going on with him, almost like a possession. I think Tex had serious "mother" issues. He had to get that old bag's permission to go to California, and he was already 21. Tex, and his father couldn't even fart without getting the mother's ok. Now, if that has anything to do with him exploding into a fit of extreme violence, we may never know. All I know is, that fucker, with those beaming, devil eyes makes me really creeped out. Sometimes, I can't even look at those weird mugshots of him when he had that "Dumb & Dumber" haircut. His victims looked into his eyes, and probably saw something other than an iris. Probably Hell.

CrisPOA said...

Hi guys i can understand what you mean...the guy being a psycho of the worst kind, that's what i think it's difficult to understand. Well yes he had family, the good looks, education and yet was a monster. There were a lot of people into drugs in the 60's as today and yet most of them try to have a balanced life...but there are others who simply jump to the abyss.
I guess the simple fact that his life was spared was the "grace" he could get. In my opinion he deserved to die.

St Circumstance said...

Ann- a great post and take on this in my opinion by the way...

Sorry Cris- I hope you know I did not mean to be rude to you personally...

You seem a fine person :)

I just get fuzzy when I hear too many nice words and Tex in the same paragraph- but I respect your opinion, and your kind spirit.

CrisPOA said...

Hi Ann i remember when Sadie said that - something about he lifting off the ground and wild screaming at Cielo. Linda once described feeling strange after having sex with him -something about feeling sucked in and her hands tensed. One of the girls told her that was her ego dying. That was odd.

AustinAnn74 said...

When Tex talks about how he is forgiven, he might as well sound like Charlie Brown's teacher on the Peanuts cartoons. He never admitted his participation in stabbing Shorty, which he did. Isn't that one of the requirements for penance? You confess your sins? Why he is desperately trying to block those tapes from being exposed? Why did he write an affidavit for Leslie, stating she never knew people were going to be killed that 2nd night? He murdered 9 people, including an unborn, full term baby. Hell is awaiting Tex, kinda like that movie Constantine. Susan is already there, awaiting him.

CrisPOA said...

Hi St, no problem! you were not rude at all.
I was not trying to make things lighter on him. I was just considering his life in hindsight and wondering what kind of human being he was/is.

CrisPOA said...

Oh yes Ann, and the fact that he worked with Bruce Davis in the chapel? It was The Family all over again? It seems he couldn't keep away from those people. And that is unacceptable for someone who tries to overcome his past.

AustinAnn74 said...

That's right, Cris, I forgot about that. I think at one time Bruce Davis, Tex Watson, Steve Grogan, and Bobby Beausoleil were housed in the same prison, but it didn't last too long. They ended up transferring Bobby, I think. I'm not 100% sure on that, but it was brought up at Bobby's 2010 parole hearing. Doris Tate was very instrumental in getting Tex transferred out of CMC, because he was practically running the show there. Him and Bruce were best buddies, and you know they probably reminiscented about good ol days at Spahns. Sickening!!! Bill Nelson's book about Tex will really get you stewed. After all the typos, you'll really know what Tex is like. I'm so ashamed that he is from the Lone Star state! :(

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

Re-reading this actually makes me feel sick with anger.

I question the need for another "Helter Skelter" movie.

I'm sure you do - you'd rather people forget about what you did.

I am saddened to see the hunger our society has for this phenomena.

So sorry about that. Maybe one day 'society' will behave just as you want it to. You Mansonites really haven't changed at all, have you? Still a bunch of preachy self-righteous assholes who think you're superior to the masses. Oh, by the way - what you evasively call 'this phenomena' we call 'Charles Watson's disgusting, cowardly multiple murders'.

One day, I believe this evil will be overcome by good.

Unless Steven Parent wakes up and goes home to his family to resume his life, what you've just said is a meaningless piece of self-serving BS.

this presentation of the Manson Family's demonic wave of horror.

This 'Manson Family' you mention, did you ever meet any of those people? You call the killings 'demonic' - but my understanding is that they were committed by adult humans, notably Charles Watson, who stabbed multiple unarmed people to death.

This movie depicts Manson as a drug-crazed, want-to-be rock star, who sends his groupies out to kill in anger and revenge to start "Helter Skelter". If he appeared like that to us from the start, we would never have followed him.

So, you were there for the flower-arranging classes he was running, right?

I was in turmoil when I realized his philosophical doctrines were all lies, designed to enslave us to his plan.

A real D'OH! moment, I'm sure. It's a shame for the La Biancas that your realisation didn't pre-date their vicious murders.

Charlie sung the family into a trance while on drugs, but the actor in the movie, Jeremy Davies, hardly ever sang.

Important stuff - we'll make sure the victims' families are made aware of this fact, thanks.

I was surprised that the movie depicted me as sniffing methamphethetamine in the car before the final crime. Actually, I did this before leaving the ranch.

Your memory for detail is really great, except when it's really poor. Strange that...

I was [...] a heavy thinker

I would dispute that, Mr Watson. You were an extremely superficial pseudo-thinker at best. Heavy thinkers don't make kitten paintings, generally speaking. More likely you were a bitter, narcissistic navel-gazer who found in Charlie Manson an exciting and liberating fellow-traveller.

I don't remember Manson ever physically abusing the girls.

Of course. Because if you saw he was a monster and a bully and still followed him blindly, what would that make you? Better for you to say you never saw it.

It was extremely difficult to carry out Manson's orders...

...with pigs as uncooperative as Frykowski?

No one enjoyed what they were doing

Least of all the victims, I imagine.

After the crime, we reported to Manson in the bunk house, very low-key with him not happy, and there was no celebration by the family in front of a television.

You guys should give yourselves some kind of award or something, for not actually holding a party afterwards.

My book Will You Die For Me? shares a view from someone who was there.

Evasive language. You weren't just there, you ARE those crimes.

It describes these crimes

'my crimes' you mean?

chronologically from audio recordings made just four months after the murders occurred.

They didn't 'occur'. You committed them, willingly.

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

I can speak of the crimes today, because they are behind me.

You f###ing disgusting subhuman pig.

But still, the enactment left me drained, butterflies and knots in my stomach

Awwww, I hope it didn't spoil your day!

even though that person who killed so freely is not alive any longer. He died spiritually and is now forgiven, and made new by the righteous sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

How very, very convenient for you!

The movie fails to tell the powerful story of how a convicted killer can change and after all these years become an asset to others with him in prison.

Proof-reading. A-S-S-H-O-L-E, not A-S-S-E-T.

The movie presents the bad news, but shouldn't we look for some good news in the midst of such agony?

OK... You're all dying in prison! :)

It is seldom told how one of the victim's family member portrayed in the movie has forgiven me.

Placed next to all those deaths it is absolutely irrelevant. It doesn't tip the scales one jot. But why don't you have it printed on a t-shirt or give yourself another medal.

The story does not end with the arrest, conviction and incarceration of those caught up in this story.

It should've ended with your executions. You revolting, self-justifying piece of trash. You weren't 'caught up in this story' - you ARE the story. You say you do face up to it, but your language proves you do not.

The more you write, the more impossible it is not to despise you for who you are now almost as much as for who you were.

AustinAnn74 said...

I like how you think, Michael! This garbage he wrote is enough to make you puke, huh? It could work better than a dose of Ipecac!!

Robert Hendrickson said...

WOW, You're ALL now on top of the game.

Mother issues - you bet ! And HER religion ! Boy next door, football jock - for sure. I can hear the wheels spinning.

AND the difference between TEX and Charles Manson has got to be a key to understanding how two brains can dangerously intermingle. It almost sounds like Manson took TEX's mother's place. It's called transference. They even make horror movies about that stuff.

IF you had to choose, who would YOU rather have as a next door neighbor ?

There are only a very few Manson's in the world, BUT TEX is EVERYWHERE.

When I got out of the Army in 1967, I later applied to join the LAPD. I passed the mental tests, but was two pounds under weight. They really wanted me and told me how to gain some weight. For about two weeks I did exactly what they said, but someone I respected greatly then told me there were a couple a questions on the final test to see IF I had "mother issues" - That the LAPD only wanted those men, because THEY could easily pull their gun and SHOOT at another human being.

Obviously, I was afraid I might actually be one of those who would enjoy shooting someone and never went back.

I have never forgotten that image of "cops having serious issues" which probably helped me understand how the Family disliked cops.

Unfortunately, MEN and "mother issues" go hand in hand. To the extent most mothers CONTROL their little boys FOREVER.

When I read about Tex's mother / religious situation, I realized HE was screwed for life. He may have finally shaken off his mother, but obviously HE is still stuck to her spirit through HER religious fanatics. I believe HIS religious trip is what an educated parole board sees to prevent HIM from ever being let out. Same could be the deciding factor for Bruce.

CrisPOA said...

What would be his mother religious issues if i may ask? I would be interested to read about that. The more you dig, the more you find...

Tex has Norman Bates syndrome. He probably would like someone to dress up in a granny wig, and beat him. He was ripe for the pickin......

Robert Hendrickson said...

CHRIS: You can read about TEX's mother in "Will you die for me".

In general, TEX was raised in a strict Christian enviornment. That means he was TAUGHT that HE could murder innocent people and all HE would have to - do to be FORGIVEN and get to HEAVEN - was accept Jesus Christ as HIS savior. That means that IF I accept Jesus Christ as MY savior, I will go to HEAVEN and have TEX as MY new neighbor, BUT my Jewish wife will NOT be allowed to live with ME. NOR will MY childhood best friend, who also never harmed a fly, be allowed to even visit ME.

BUT, JFK and LBJ, two self-serving religious freaks, responsible for the DEATHS of tens of thousands of young American boys could also be MY new neighbors. Even Adolf Hitler, who was responsible for millions of DEATHS, could be TEX's new buddy, if HE accepted Jesus Christ as HIS savior - at the last minute in that BUNKER.

WORSE yet, if I go to HEAVEN, I will have to LOVE my new neighbors TEX, JFK and LBJ - cause Jesus and GOD don't want ANY trouble while THEY are ruling THEIR rightious empire.

Jesus will make mucho wine out of water ( a heavenly miracle ) and we'll ALL just lay around and get stoned.

Do when TEX discovered Manson and the Spahn Ranch, HE thought HE was in HEAVEN. And the Battle of Armageddon, well - TEX was already primed for that TRIP by HIS mother's religious up-bring.

CrisPOA said...

Thanks Mr. Hendrickson, i've read that book...guess i didn't pay attention at this part.
I can see you are against all religion and i respect that. You made good points. But i really don't think Tex did all he did because of his christian background - he was, as a matter of fact, averse to the doctrine (also in WYDFM).
About the mother thing, maybe a freudian theory would explain better.

To me the kitten paintings seem very deliberately calculated. I suspect they are done completely with his parole hearings in mind- surely a man who, when he puts brush to canvas produces only works of childlike fluffy 'twee', must be rehabilitated, and should be released? It goes part and parcel with the whole 'convert to Christianity' trick he is playing, they are both designed to sway the parole board- but the angles he's working on both accounts are each so obviously false that it's no wonder the board keep seeing through it.

Tex, you will never get out. Give up. Commit to your dark side and start painting fleas the size of rats sucking on rats the size of cats. Convert to Luciferian Gnosticism and preach the tyranny of the Demiurge and the freeing power of unrestrained violent hedonism. The charade is fooling no one so you might as well embrace honesty and try and enjoy those last few decades you'll spend rotting in that shit-hole- although I hope you don't.

I don't say this about many people, or any people, but Tex deserves to suffer. Every time I see what he is up to this belief is just reinforced that littlebit more. :)

Robert Hendrickson said...

CHRIS: Carefully read Vermouth's last comment. Remember "religion" is first and foremost a business. Tex's mother trained HIM to be a faithful customer of the business's products. Then Tex met an outstanding salesman (CM) associated with the business. BUT Tex always wanted to be a "leader" himself in the SALES department of the "business." - just like HIS mother.

So Charles Manson showed TEX how to become a STAR in the Sales Department for the "business." Of course, being a STAR has to be in your blood.

Am I "against" the business of RELIGION ? Of course NOT. It is the most successful business in any "capitalist" society.

It's ONLY real enemy is "Communism," and everyone knows how boring that is.

CrisPOA said...

Hm then Tex did it for stardom in the cult? That would make his book truthful, at least for his personal motives..."it's coming down fast"!
I have to disagree with you about the most sucessful business - i think it's war....

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

Can't stop coming back to look at these unbearable fluffy kitten paintings. And they remind me of the great ending of a great movie...

'They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."'

AustinAnn74 said...

Hence, NORMAN BATES!!!

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

But Ann, I feel a kind of revolted pity for Norman. And if Hell froze over I might feel the same for Manson, I really might, as much as I despise the man.

But Tex? Never. If Manson were on fire I might piss him out, as they say. Tex? I could watch that creature burn and feel nothing at all. I'd consider it a memorial candle for poor Steven Parent, and for Leno, and all of them.

AustinAnn74 said...

Michael, I mean Norman Bates, as in mother obsessed. I think Tex is a despicable piece of floating shit. There is not one good quality about him. I feel the exact same way. I'm deeply ashamed he's from Texas, and we share the same accent.

Healter Skelter said...

Tex believes in sky fairies.
What a loser.

Healter Skelter said...

Tex is a loser. Religion is for losers.

Healter Skelter said...

I want to wipe my ass with Tex's bible.

Michael Hloušek-Nagle said...

Healter skelter,

Yeah, we get the message. The small geographical and historical minority of humans who have no religious belief are just smarter and cleverer and less judgemental and more beautiful than other humans.

Religion is sometimes for losers. Atheism likewise. Stupidity and arrogance are ALWAYS for losers.
