I Proclaim May 29th as "MANSON MEDIA MADNESS DAY!"

Aquarius
In NETFLIX-like fashion, NBC is dropping the whole 13 episode run of Aquarius on their website beginning on May 29th, the day after it's two hour broadcast premiere.  May 29th is also the date that the Brooklyn Film Festival opens with Manson Family Vacation, the fictionalized version of the adventures of our friends over at that other blog.  OK, just kidding, although the similarities are uncanny.  Don Murphy is not, repeat NOT, involved in the production, but I bet he and the Duplass brothers have hung out at Hollywood cocktail parties.

Anyway, book your flights to NYC now.  Or else just stay home and binge watch Charlie's early years. That sounds like a better idea anyway because even shitty movies last forever whereas Aquarius might very well disappear before anyone even knew it was on.  I'm sure we'll have more to discuss about both early next month.

It was a different time,
The age of Aquarius

katie8753 said...

Sunset! Good to see you!!

william marshall said...

Wow Leary just thinking what JFK's assanation must have done to you probably like me when John Lennon was killed Dec. 8 1980 I'll never forget it I was 10 & thanks to an older sister already a Beatles fan anyway happy birthday Hey Katie Hope all is well with you guess Lynynrd is still semi retired from the blog ?

katie8753 said...

Hi William, good to see you again!

Last time I talked to Lynyrd, he was having computer trouble but was going to get back on-line when he could. He hasn't been on the blog like he used to because he's just got a lot of other things going on but he'll probably show up in a day or so...

funny to think of a seminal historical event being a huge factor in someone's personal development but yeah, William, I remember every second of that weekend. My family lived in the district that elected him to Congress. He was a Superhero to Boston Irish Catholics.
But weirdly, I have no memories of August 8th and 9th, 1969. Of course I was a self-obsessed teen living out a hormonal summer at the beach. I don't think I became aware of TLB till reading the BUg's book around '74.

In grad school I made a documentary called "Decades of Doubt" which looked at how 11/22/63 directly effected the lives of six people. It helped that I was engaged to Oswald's daughter at the time. But it is interesting how an event can consume a person and become a deciding factor in his or her personality development.

I still haven't smiled since that ball went through Buckner's legs.

along those lines, I've forgotten the name of the guy from Iceland who became such a Manson expert. Everyone raves about the quality of his site and him as a person. I always wanted to know more about his story.
I bet a short documentary focusing on folk like RH and CieloDrive and a couple of long time bloggers or TLB experts would be interesting.

leary7 said...

Hell, I would love to see a quality profile done just on the ladies...Patti and Deb and Katie and lost Liz and Candy'Nuts etc etc
I'm finished. Back to sports.

katie8753 said...

Leary that was Bret, and his site was AWESOME. He was working on some interesting bios of the killers when he passed. Lots of details that most folks don't know.

He had just about anything you wanted to read on his site.

william marshall said...

Yes Katie Bret glad you remembered his name Leary I knew who you were referring to & believe it or not That person who was such a fan of Bret has mellowed out a lot & I now miss him blogging before I got interested in Manson conspiracy theories it was the Kennedy assassination have almost as many books on JFK & the assanation as on Manson & Tate/Labianca I totally agree with you that a documentary about the people who have done & some continue to research the case & keep these blogs up & running Leary I believe we both follow the same Manson blogs I've seen you're comments & I'm sure you've seen mine as well

william marshall said...

Oh & the tragic way Bret died R.I.P. hope you found the happiness that alluded you here on earth just very sad

katie8753 said...

William, you're so sweet. Have a very sweet good night! Smooch to you!! :)

CarolMR said...

What was the name of Bret's site?

katie8753 said...

Carol, it was The Manson Family Today. Here is a link to his You Tube which is still there:

CarolMR said...

Thanks so much, Katie!

CarolMR said...

There is an article on Morgane Polanski, Roman's daughter, in last month's Harper's Bazaar. It has Julianne Moore on the cover. Morgane is quite pretty - she looks like her mom. She is very close to her dad and he seems very protective of her. She is an actress in France.

katie8753 said...

Thanks Carol. Do you know if there is a link to it on You Tube or somewhere else?

CarolMR said...

Katie, there may be a link if you go to Harper's Bazaar's site. It was last month's issue with Julianne on the cover. I hope you find it! I don't think the magazine is on the newsstands any longer. The new issue is already out.

katie8753 said...

OK thanks Carol!

American Pharaoh won the Preakness just now. We have another chance for a Triple Crown Winner at Belmont this year!

bobby said...

Hi all, I've been reading & trying to post but I got a new computer & had to set my account back up. hope it worked this time.

Anyway, Morgane Polanski has a part in the only TV soap opera that I am addicted to. History channel VIKINGS. She plays a French princess in Paris. She seems to be a good actress to my un trained eye.

Bobby

Hi Bobby! Thanks!

Saw a billboard for Aquarius the other day. I'm looking forward to it.

I just finished listening to Corey Feldman's audiobook. In it he says his mother would tell him stories about partying at Spahn Ranch. He doesn't say too much about this subject, but I thought I'd mention it. Her name is Sheila Goldstein and she was a playboy model.

katie8753 said...

Thanks Revatron. What year did she do that?

revatron said...

Unfortunately he was pretty vague about it. He just said that she attended wild parties there.
