Manson Girls Musical...

Hello Folks,

I love your blog! It's been very valuable to me in the creation of Manson's Girls. I wrote the lyrics for this show which will have it's world premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival less than two weeks from now. If any of you are in the Hollywood area I would be pleased to give you free tickets.

The musical covers the month between the arrival of Linda Kasabian and the murders. It is meant as a cautionary tale rather than an exploitation piece, as we see Linda sliding down the slippery slope from hippie to murder accomplice. It is not a comedy, though it has it's ironic moments.

There is a rock and roll score performed by a live band accompanying a dozen snappy songs like "Every Day I Fall In Love" (Squeaky's ode to Charlie) and "Helter Skelter" (the finale where the whole family revs up their bloody engine for revolution). Even Sharon Tate has a star turn.

Here are some marketing materials you might find useful if you decide to do a post about the show. Feel free to contact me, I'd love to chat with you!

Thanks a bunch,

Mitchell Glaser

I know we haven't said anything about TLB for a while.  Why?  Because nothing's going on.

Here's a tidbit.  Brad Pitt says of the new Tarantino Manson movie "It's one of the most amazing scripts Tarantino has ever written."

Well at this point in time, I'm really hoping that Tarantino can finally get the car right, the characters right, the dialogue right and the houses right regarding the TLB murders.

Because there hasn't been ONE movie yet that did!!  Not even ONE!

BTW that girl doesn't look like Sharon Tate.  At ALL!!!  Not even one bit!

Tarantino's new film set during the Charles Manson murders is the 'closest to Pulp Fiction' he's ever done



Brad Pitt says it's "one of the most amazing scripts Tarantino has ever written." This will be great!

Despite the fact that filming hasn't even started on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino knows how to hype a film better than most.

A few weeks ago, we brought you the news that Brad Pitt will be reuniting with the director of Inglourious Basterds and that Leonardo DiCaprio will also be along for the ride.

Sharon Tate
Tarantino, who is writing and directing, describes the project as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood" and he has provided a few more details about what's in store.

The director of Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs showed up at CinemaCon with DiCaprio and both men were happy to chat about their next collaboration - they previously worked together on Django Unchained.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino said: "It's very hush-hush and top secret. But I can tell you that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes place in 1969, at the height of the counterculture hippie revolution and the height of new Hollywood." He added that he and his team will transform the city of Los Angeles "block by block" into 1969 Hollywood.

Charles Manson - Open Casket Funeral followed by Cremation


Charles Manson had his final hurrah Saturday during a memorial service that ended in fire.

Manson's body was front and center at a service held in Porterville, CA. We're told the body was decomposing badly, and needed heavy makeup and gloves to cover the deterioration. He died 4 months ago but his body was put on ice until a judge decided who would take control of it.

Approximately 30 people showed up at the funeral home. His grandson, Jason Freeman -- the man who won control over the body -- spoke at the service, as did a Manson follower.
 
Manson's service didn't end with a burial. His body was cremated and his ashes were spread along a nearby creek bed in a forest. Apparently it was a windy day, because the ashes blew back on the guests.  

We're told the attendees included Manson's former fiancee, Afton Burton, and former Manson Family member Sandra Good.

As TMZ first reported ... Manson -- the mastermind behind one of the most heinous murder sprees in American history -- died of natural causes back in November 2017. He was 83.

Pastor Officiated Funeral with clear Conscience

The pastor who presided over Charles Manson's funeral had ZERO qualms about it because he was comforting a follower of Christ -- Manson's grandson, NOT the mass murderer.

Pastor Mark Pitcher of Porterville Church of the Nazarene tells TMZ ... ordinarily he'd have a massive conflict performing a funeral service for someone with Manson's homicidal past, but he made an exception because Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, is a Christian who was in need of a pastor.

Pitcher tells us the funeral director approached him last week with what he called a "unique situation." He says he agreed to meet Jason and his wife, Audrey, the day before the service.

Pitcher says he told Jason he wouldn't touch certain aspects of Manson's life -- namely the Manson Family murders. He did read a few scriptures, at Jason's request, during the ceremony.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson had an open casket funeral over the weekend. He was immediately cremated when the service ended and his ashes spread along a nearby creek bed.

Sharon Tate’s sister calls Hilary Duff movie about actress’ murder ‘classless’



The late Sharon Tate's sister is sick of people exploiting the actress' murder.

Debra Tate, called the upcoming film "The Haunting of Sharon Tate" both "classless" and "exploitative" after actress Hilary Duff shared an image of her dressed like Sharon Tate for the role.

"It doesn't matter who it is acting in it — it's just tasteless," Debra Tate told People. "It's classless how everyone is rushing to release something for the 50th anniversary of this horrific event."

Debra Tate was 16 when he sister was murdered in 1969 by one of the followers of Charles Manson's cult. The 26-year-old actress was married to director Roman Polanski at the time of her murder and was 8½ months pregnant with their first child.

Debra Tate commented on the film's premise, which claims that Sharon Tate had a premonition that she and her former boyfriend Jay Sebring would have their throats slit — which is similar to how they were killed by being stabbed repeatedly.

Debra said the so-called dream never happened.

"It's a total fabrication," she said.

"I know for a fact she did not have a premonition — awake or in a dream — that she and Jay would have their throat cut," she told People. "I checked with all of her living friends. None of her friends had any knowledge of this. "

"Tacky, tacky, tacky."

Duff called portraying Sharon Tate in the independent film an "incredible opportunity."

She was an amazing woman and it was a true honor," the 30-year-old wrote on Instagram.

"The Haunting of Sharon Tate" is an independent film directed by Daniel Farrands.

Super Bowl LII

Well... my Patriots lost.

Congratulations to the Eagles, and their fans.
They played a great game, and won fair and square.

Amazingly, our 40 year old Quarterback, still played a solid game.

Unfortunately, our defense was beaten by the Eagles offense for the entire game.
Our defense allowed way too many first downs.

Also, our offensive line failed to offer Brady much protection, throughout the game.
Kudos to the Eagles defense for applying pressure throughout.

But most of all...
Congratulations to Nick Foles, for a great game!
For a "Back-up Quarterback" that guy was amazing in the post-season.
He's more talented than most "starting Quarterbacks" in the NFL.

And lastly, Congratulations to Doug Pederson for some gutsy decisions during the game.
Other coaches would have played conservatively against the Patriots, but Doug took some calculated risks, and they paid-off.

It sucks losing, but it's a little easier, when you lose to a good team.

Heck... 
Even IF the Patriots got that missed field goal back, they still would have lost.

No way around it, the Eagles won the game.

Congrats to the Eagles.
