With everything that's going on in this country right now, this seems appropriate.  

God Bless Bret.  

I hope you all remember him.  I do.

50 years after

LOL. I notice that most of Bret's You Tube Channel has been stripped. He used to have a website. I can't find it yet. You used to be able to locate it on the Wayback machine.

It seems to me that I heard that Bretg78 died, possibly years ago. On his YouTube it doesn't look like anything has been uploaded for about 10 years. These things happen on the internet. When people die, their "footprint" slowly disappears.

Another person I know that died by falling to his death was rock climber Daniel Ahnen. He posted one of the first, (and scariest) videos I ever watched on YouTube--El Camino del Rey (The Kings Little Pathway)

Also, one of if not the best blog on the internet about the Holocaust has disappeared, maybe a year ago. It was called "scrapbookpages". It had tons of information about all the camps. It said that domain was for sale for a while, then it disappeared. I guess the person that ran it died, and the bill for the server was no longer paid. (don't look for it, there's another blog called scrapbookpages copied by a Holocaust denier to post propaganda).

Wow that's interesting Sunset. Yes Bret died years ago. He had one of, if not the best, Manson websites. He had started writing in-depth bios of the Manson Family killers. They were really interesting because he went into so much detail about stuff I had never heard before. He was working on one of them when he died. I think that was Leslie Van Houten's. Can't remember now.

After his death, I was able to see some of the stuff on the Wayback Machine. I guess after time the website disappears because of non-payment, like you said. His You Tube channel used to have tons of stuff. Most of that's gone now.

The trial turned them into pseudo celebrities. And they loved that! But when the trial was over, they were just convicted felons, and suddenly it wasn't funny anymore.

That's why they've spent the rest of the time trying to get out, instead of grinning at the camera, carving signs in their heads and the other nonsense they pulled.

"He had started writing in-depth bios of the Manson Family killers."

You can still find them over at mansonblog.com.

katie8753 said...

Okay thanks Starviego!!

beauders said...

I have some sympathy for Van Houten, she has done nothing wrong except marrying a creep, in over 52 years and I think she should be released. Obviously, it's not going to happen until a judge says she can go.

beauders said...

If you have time Katie, go to youtube and look up Kitten Academy, there is a ginger mother with eight male kittens, all ginger as well. They are adorable.

katie8753 said...

Beauders, you and I have different opinions of Van Houten, but that's okay. What is your opinion of Bret? Did you have a chance to read the info on his website before it disappeared?

I went on Kitten Academy and saw Brown and Orange Tabbies. Didn't see any Gingers. Or are Gingers the same as Orange Tabbies?

BTW, did you know that almost ALL orange tabbies are male. And almost all brown tabbies are female? It has to do with Chromosomes and color of kitty kats!

beauders said...

Yes, gingers are orange, it's British. I knew Bret pretty well, I helped him translate his writing into proper English. The article on Bruce Davis is pretty much his research and my writing. I was also his source on Atkins second husband being a prison groupy, Whitehead had a previous relationship with an attempted murderer named Veronica Compton. She makes the Manson Women look sane. Look her up she's pretty interesting. I considered Bret a friend and was sad when he died. Heroin is a huge problem in Europe and it sounds like he got caught up in it. He was too young to die. He was also interested in Patty Hearst and the SLA. I think he believed in what the mainstream press said about that incident, I don't, like Jonestown, I believe there was some type of Intelligence program going on there. I think it is also possible with Manson, someone saw Manson was losing it and tossed him into the Tate and LaBianca households. I would say it was possible with Tex as well. He had some kind of connection to Naval Intelligence, but it is very murky and very covered-up. Is this what is on the Tex tapes? possibly, but I think the tapes show that Manson wasn't involved as much as everyone thinks. He claimed he "wasn't directing traffic that night" and I in part believe him at least about Tate. The radio proegam on Youtube about Manson and the murders do you have access to the older material? I would really would like to hear it and cannot find it anywhere.

beauders said...

Katie, the baby gingers are on screen right now if you want to see the boys.

beauders said...

I've probably haven't told anyone on the blogs but I write with a British accent. I spell things their way such as neighbor in England is spelled neighbour and Ginger is the word used for Orange. It's fun for me and gives me some anonymity. I also have a male name I use Beauregard Andrew Dunthorpe, Beauregard was my soulmate cat. The male name also has the same initials as my legal name BAD.

Interesting. I'm subscribed to "TLB Radio" on YouTube. I just happened to see their live radio show on my feed last night, I didn't listen live. After the live show is over, they upload a video, and I can listen to it later. After the show was over last night they uploaded the video, it was on my feed for about an hour. Then the whole nine yards disappeared. I don't know what happened, I can't even find the channel. The "TLB Radio" Facebook page is even gone.

I suspect "something" happened, they might have removed all their content for "whatever" reason, or it might just be some computer glitch as they happen all the time. It seems to me that radio personality "Brian Davis" out of Roanoke VA runs that show. I'll be watching to see if any of his material turns up. (he might have decided to remove it all from free sites, and put it on pay sites). I don't know. If any TLB Radio stuff shows up on my YouTube feed, I'll post about it here.

katie8753 said...

Wow! Interesting stuff! Thanks Beauders & Sunset!!

Beauders I didn't know that you knew Bret or helped him write those bios. Those were awesome! Why don't you tell Sunset exactly what you're looking for on TLB Radio and he might can find it for you. He's good at that.

Beauders if you have material you want to make a thread out of for this blog, you can just e-mail me the info, including pics or videos, and I'll put it together for you!

beauders said...

I'm interested in all TLB Radio material that is not available. No one has to worry about it, I only want to listen, and won't do anything naughty with it.

sunset77 said...

I just looked again, as best I can tell, all TLB Radio content on YouTube and Facebook is either deleted or set to private, (I have no idea why). It's possible those accounts have been "hacked", it seems to me Brian had that problem once before, years ago.

The only TLB Radio content I can find is on Twitter. I don't know much about it, I don't use Twitter, I don't have an account. One thing I found interesting on the Twitter feed is a post from Cielodrive dot com. I don't know if that's person that runs the website Cielodrive dot com with a bunch of great info, transcripts, news articles, photos etc. I've never known the person that runs that site to post on social media, never responded to my comments on the Cielodrive dot com website. Anyway, here's a link to about the only TLB Radio content I can find right now-- TLB Radio Twitter

BD had a meltdown on his Sunday show. I think he deleted his accounts voluntarily shortly thereafter.

katie8753 said...

Thanks Sunset and Starviego!

Wow! As Robin would say, "Holy Moly"!

Beauders, Cielodrive.com has lots of info on that website too. I think his name is Beau. In the past he's been very generous with letting us use some of his material on this blog. I'm sure he wouldn't mind if you wanted to browse his inventory.

On another note, I was gonna ask y'all if you remember a guy named Jim from NY. We used to talk to him all the time, but I haven't seen him in a while.

I'm trying to moderate this blog, but I'm sure you guys know a lot more than I do by this time. So have it anyone who wants to comment.

Just keep it clean! LOL.

katie8753 said...

I also want to say that Brian Davis is welcome to come on this blog and explain what happened if he chooses. It's not fair to discuss other people and not let them explain their side of the story.

Just sayin'!

sunset77 said...

"starviego said...

I guess that could happen. I didn't listen to the show at all. I seen it on my feed at around 8 or 9 on Sunday night, it was over around 10 or 11, I think the video of it was up for about an hour, but I didn't listen to it at all. I guess it's like his catch line, "Miss a little, miss a lot".

katie8753 said...

It's funny how neither Pat nor Leslie had any children. I guess the Gonorrhea ate them up!

beauders said...

And it's surprising Atkins did have a baby with her history of vd.

katie8753 said...

Yeah, they had to hose Sadie down before they could take her to jail. LOL.

katie8753 said...

I wonder what happened to those unfortunate children who were born to these things.

Mary Brunner claimed her son was Manson's. Although I don't know how she would know that because she was screwing other men.

Sandy claimed her son was Pugh's. Although I don't know how she would know that, same reason.

Sadie had a son called Zadfrack-something. Who knows who that father was.

And it's funny how Leslie & Pat ended up on baby-sitting duty all the time, like they were the "old maids" and they were taking care of everyone else's brats, while they were out doing whatever they wanted, including robbing a Sears.

beauders said...

The father of Zezo was a guy called Old Bruce, Sandy Goods baby was fathered by Beausoleil and raised by a friend of Goods. He’s doing well and owns a Cajun Restaurant I believe in Dallas. Onto B&B what was going on with Shauna’s t-shirt? I like Shauna and I wish she had stolen Ridge away from Brooke but this is a soap about fashion and I like they dress Shauna ‘down’ but Thursday was rediculous her t-shirt collar looked like it was worn during the Gulf War and not been cleaned and was stretched as far as it would go. Friday it was a little better so I am assuming it was on purpose. Is that the new style In L.A.? I hope it never makes it to Portland (unless it is on rioters, which would make them more identifiable).

katie8753 said...

I didn't notice Shauna's T shirt. Forrester is supposed to be a powerhouse fashion place and all of the characters on this show look like they shop at the Salvation Army. Ridge always wears that suit and no tie, with that scruffy hair on his chin, which looks sloppy.

sunset77 said...

I just looked, I think some of the TLB Radio stuff is back up. I think someone had said they wanted to listen to the old stuff, I don't know if any of that is on there, like from back in the Star City Radio days, but here is what is up, (I don't know if there will be a live show tonight or not)--TLB Radio on YouTube

katie8753 said...

Thanks Sunset!!!

starviego said...

beauders said...

b.2-10-46
aka Bruce Hall, aka Johnny Bluestein, aka Bruce Vann Hall, aka Bruce White

No one knows anything about this person. Even though he was in the collection of Family mugshots.

beauders said...

Katie, she wore the t-shirt on Monday, every time I see it looks better, someone is repairing it.

katie8753 said...

I'm glad someone is trying to make Shauna more "chic". LOL.

I don't know how any of these girls would know who the father of their child was with all the bumping and grinding going on. Of course, the alleged father probably didn't care because they didn't have to pay child support because they were all indigent.

I've been watching the George Floyd trial on HLN. It's a very interesting trial. Lots of stuff I didn't know. Lots of questions I have about what happened. If anyone else wants to watch, let's discuss!

Was there really a $20 counterfeit bill that started this whole thing? They never said.

beauders said...

Yes, Portland has paid a lot for that $20.00 of funny money.

beauders said...

Katie, do you ever wonder what happened to the kitten Liam gave to the other Hope? Did the kitten move to Paris like all the other characters who disappear?

katie8753 said...

Beauders, I wonder why all of the characters on B&B move to "Paris" when something goes wrong.

What's the goal post in "Paris"? Do they have a secret "headquarters" in Paris that no one knows about? Why does everyone flee to "Paris" when they have a personal problem they can't solve in Beverly Hills?

Like recently when Steffie suddenly decided she would move to "Paris" with Kelly so Finn wouldn't be "bothered" with her new baby being Liam's. What's up with Paris?

Yeah, when you move to "Paris", you just disappear in a puff of smoke. HA HA.

Steffie and Finn conveniently disappeared, but now we have Thomas trying to get Hope back, despite Brooke's crusty vehemence.

I don't know why I watch that soap. I get so mad at the characters.

Oh well....

katie8753 said...

On another topic, how do people feel about getting the COVID vaccine? I've heard so many people say they won't take it. I don't understand this vaccine. I think what they're saying is if you get the vaccine, you're still not safe from the virus. So why take it???

beauders said...

Katie, isn't Brooke your basic home wrecker? Now she is encouraging Hope to stay with Liam, like he is such a prize, and their marriage is the most beautiful thing on daytime tv.

katie8753 said...

Brooke has slept with all of the Foresters, Ridge, his Dad and his brother. She also slept with her daughter's husband. That's where she got Hope. LOL.

She's got a lot of room to talk.

beauders said...

Don't forget bumbling Bill. At least she hasn't slept with Liam or Wyatt, or has she? These people sleep around like the Manson Family did.

katie8753 said...

Beauders, today Liam ran over Vinny! I thought Paris was going to die because Zoey put some powder in her drink that made her gaseous or something.

This is finally getting more interesting than watching paint peel!

katie8753 said...

According to the B&B threads, Vinny isn't dead. Bill drove off and left him for dead.

beauders said...

That was a surprise Vinnie being hit by Liam and Paris' tummy rumbles are hilarious.

beauders said...

Of course Liam would faint.

katie8753 said...

Those stomach noises were so odd!! And yes, Liam fainted. LOL.
