When choosing a name for his goth rock alter ego, Brian Warner ended up mashing together the names of two extreme icons of 1960’s pop culture – movie star Marilyn Monroe and murder mastermind Charles Manson – to arrive at Marilyn Manson.
And after Marilyn Manson rose to fame in the 90’s to become a pop culture icon in his own right, he apparently caught the attention of his psychopathic namesake.
A batshit insane letter from one Manson to the other has resurfaced online.
Originally published by a Charles Manson fansite (yeah, we shit you not) back in 2012, the letter – if authentic – comprises what can only be described as the creepy, nonsensical ramblings of a convicted murderer/cult leader/sex fiend/nazi/crazy ass motherfucker.
But if you’re morbid enough to want to read it (like we totally were), you can check out a copy of the letter below (along with a transcription, because let’s face it Charlie’s calligraphy is akin to that of a meth-addicted hippo trying to go for its pen license).
Dated August 2012, the letter reads:
To Marilyn Manson –
It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a fallout balance. Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007
