Contrary to what I think is popular opinion, men currently have and have for many years had available to them the option to feel anything they want, and in fact their feelings are often regarded as reason itself. If a man wants to say he is sad, he can not only say this but he can turn it into a selling point against which to buy social capital, as we know from the Sad Boy phenomenon of men like Drake. If men want to express anger, if they want to express even violent urges to commit violence against women, they are free to do so, as we know from the popularity of VAW-implicating lyrics in genres from pop punk (all of Fall Out Boy’s early work is about wishing women would die or drown or burn) to rap (Eminem has a very famous song about murdering the mother of his child and burying her body). If men are emotionally troubled, no matter what inexcusable methods they may use to work through this, they are allowed to portray this however they like, and often not only use this as proof of their goodness and softness as human beings but use it as a reason they should have access to women anytime they like (see friendzone nonsense). A man with feelings is a tortured genius, no matter how many people he abuses, no matter how cruel he is at his core. A woman with feelings is hysterical, a bitch, mean, a cunt, monstrous in essence. That’s important.
•Keith is a famous movie star and script writer framed for a crime he didnt commit and sentenced to jail for 30 years.
•5 years later, during winter, he sneaks out with the help of his loyal also famous friend, Shiro, from the outside (who believes he’s innocent) because the warden (Sendak) and the whole detention center is shit and wholly unfair.
•But his get-away car is towed away before he could reach it.
•Luckily, Lance with a beloved family, perfect life, friendly attitude gets a flat tire on his way to a job fair, and stumbles upon Keith who helps him fix his tire.
•Lance, ever friendly thanks this slightly familiar stranger by giving him a ride. Keith was only meant to be dropped off far enough the police wouldnt catch him.
•But the radio goes into breaking news of Keith Kogane’s escape and thats where Lance realizes he has the famous murderer in his car and tries to get away.
•Before he could escape Keith already takes out a gun he snatched from the police and begs Lance not to move or he’ll shoot.
•That in it self stuns Lance a moment. because who the heck BEGS someone at gun point if he really wanted to kill but doesnt move nonetheless for fear of his safety.
•Keith takes over the driving but stops over at a mcdonals driveway by nightfall for Lance to order food and they eat in the car.
•After this point Lance gets out of the car to escape in the snow but is caught by Keith. They struggle in the snow when someone far away screams “whats going on” and walks over to investigate.
•Lance knows Keith still has the gun and is afraid he might use it until Keith begs and pleas again to explain they were only playing because he doesnt want to use the gun.
•Torn and dismayed, Lance plays along to reassure the person and ends up getting back in the car. They drive all they way up to the colorado mountains to stay hidden at Shiro’s lavish retreat.
•Its two days of two escape attempts the second one where Keith almost froze himself to death swimming in the water cos he thought Lance drowned in the freezing river while trying to escape.
•But Lance staged the whole thing to get away. Hidden while watching this supposed murderer going through swimming in the ice cold river just to save him was baffling.
•The moment Keith surfaced and layed down on the snow covered ground to die of hypothermia, crying and shivering cos of guilt spurred Lance into carrying him back to the house and desperate to take care of him.
•Its a week of truce. Of getting to know each other. Finding out Keith was framed. Asking Keith about the incident. How suicidal Keith was. Teaching Keith how to cook. Teaching him how to wash clothes, how to build a snowman, what shows were good on TV. How Keith was gentle, and kind and considerate with witty banter to boot.
•Lance almost forgot he had a crush on this actor 5 years ago… Now it wasn’t just a crush. He was falling in love.
Ramirez was a fan of the rock band AC/DC and even left a baseball cap with the band’s logo on it at the scene of one of his murders.
Those who knew Dahmer personally reported that one of his favorite bands was Black Sabbath. Because Dahmer’s crimes are so notorious many metal bands have written songs based on him and the horrific acts he committed.
John Wayne Gacy (The Killer Clown)
The man who made Americans terrified of clowns once answered a survey in which he listed REO Speedwagon as his favorite band.
Though it has never been proven that Manson committed ANY murders by his own hand, he did lead a cult that carried out multiple murders under his instruction. Manson was a musician himself and despite never achieving fame for his music, he succeeded in associating himself with some of the most famous musicians of the time. The Beach Boys were personal friends of Manson to the point that he lived with Dennis Wilson for a short while. He also hung around with folk-rock band The Mamas and The Papas and Neil Young.
Charles Manson loved The Beatles and even used lyrics from their songs to fuel his delusions and control his followers.
The “Son of Sam” was a self-proclaimed folk rock lover and one of his favorite artists was Peter, Paul, and Mary.
Wuornos’ favorite artist was Natalie Merchant and she even arranged to have the song “Carnival” played at her funeral.
Aileen Wuornos confessed to killing six men in northern and central Florida between December 1989 and September 1990. Wuornos claimed the men had picked her up while she was working as a prostitute, but that each had tried to sexually assault her. Wuornos said that she’d shot the men in self defense. The media frenzy surrounding Wuornos’ case earned her the popular title of “America’s first female serial killer.” Just before her lethal injection on Oct. 9, 2002, Wuornos referenced the movie Independence Day in her final, creepy last words:
“I’d just like to say I’m sailing with the rock, and I’ll be back like Independence Day with Jesus June 6. Like the movie, big mother ship and all. I’ll be back.”
My true crime brain couldn’t help but think of this famous female serial killer when I saw what the storm that is hitting the UK is called.
This got me thinking so I decided to share her last words before lethal injection in 2002.
