Well, that’s it for Charles Manson, the living embodiment of the dark side of the 1960s; he has died at the age of 83. And apparently only several days after American Horror Story: Cult ended—a show which, in addition to being partially inspired by the man’s antics, also featured a retro sequence featuring series star Evan Peters as Manson himself.
It isn’t bad enough that we’re being warned of the potential dangers of sentient AI…now developers are purposely programming artificial intelligence to think like serial killers!
A University of Southern California professor has created AI software to mimic the thought patterns of the infamous Zodiac Killer, hoping to break the serial killer’s Z340 code and possibly solve the decades-old case. And one of the most disturbing aspects of the act of feeding Zodiac’s writings to the super-computer is…
The AI is writing creepy-ass stalkery Zodiac poetry.
Despite his initial unassuming look, serial Jeffrey Dahmer was a scary guy…and he’s probably even scarier in the afterlife. Did his angry ghost visit actor Alex Wolff, who plays real-life Dahmer school friend Derf Backderf in the new movie My Friend Dahmer?
Wolff claims that he and Ross Lynch, who portrays the young Dahmer in the movie, were done for the day after a long shoot in a secluded house in Ohio. Neither were feeling very good—sick, nauseous—and Lynch decided to take out his frustration on the real Jeffrey Dahmer:
It would be remiss of me to run a site like this and never talk about Pizzagate. For those not aware, Pizzagate was this huge conspiracy theory—fueled by a hack on the email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager—that blew up around the same time as the last months of the 2016 U.S. presidential race. It opined, among other things, that a Washington D.C. pizza parlor was some sort of flashpoint for a major occult-tinged pedophilia ring that had tentacles in the Democratic party.
This post will mostly not be on Pizzagate. And yet Pizzagate theory itself—though widely “debunked” and literally driven underground on the Internet—still has some interesting relevances in a number of ways.
It has been recently reported that late pro football player Aaron Hernandez had severe CTE—chronic traumatic encephalopathy. His CTE was so bad that researchers who examined his brain were shocked…the 27-year-old former New England Patriots tight end had the brain trauma of a football player in his sixties.
Why is this important & why am I writing about it? Well, Hernandez had a history of violence and was convicted of killing someone…and earlier this year he committed suicide in prison after writing the word “Illuminati” on the wall of his jail cell with his blood alongside a eye-and-pyramid- symbol.
My life was ruined. Ruined by an intelligent species of amphibian-humanoids from Mars. I wish I was joking. Keep reading.
—Kyle Odom, “Manifesto”
In early 2014, University of Idaho student and ex-Marine Kyle Odom discovered the technique of meditation as a way to deal with the stress over his heavy coursework. By February of that year, he claimed to have encountered a “being” through these meditations.
On March 6, 2016, Odom shot Pastor Tim Remington inside a church parking lot. Two days later in Washington D.C., Odom was arrested after throwing documents over the South Fence of the White House. In those documents, as well as a Facebook status posted shortly after the Remington shooting, Odom claimed that the world was ruled by an ancient civilization from Mars.
What exactly happened to Kyle Odom when he was meditating in February of 2014?
There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.
I researched James Holmes for two months in preparation for a comic book I was writing. I read his college transcripts, I watched his school presentation, I watched multiple re-enactments of the crimes he committed in a Colorado movie theater in 2012. Read hundreds of articles, tracked down photos from his camp counseling days, and more.
But to back up: I was diligently collecting news stories about so-called “Joker-related” crimes for several years before that; the first one taking place maybe a week or two after The Dark Knight came out, the worst being two mass murders.
A question I repeatedly asked myself through this entire process was:
“who do we blame?”
