Marilyn Manson Powers LA Weekly Web Editor’s Resignation

That was fast and, evidently, carefully orchestrated. Friday, February 25th was LA Weekly web editor Erin Broadley‘s last day at the alternative weekly’s Culver City offices. In her resignation email previously reported by FishbowlLA, Broadley promised to let readers know where she landed.

Sure enough, yesterday came the spectacular news via her former employer of Broadley’s new gig. She will be collaborating with Marilyn Manson on the rocker’s first authorized biography:

“I asked Erin to write an objective account of my life because I have great respect for her,” said Manson. “I think she has the balls to be the next Lee Miller.” (Miller, the press release explains, “was a Surrealist-era journalist, famous for her work with Man Ray and breaking into Hitler’s apartment while working for Vogue during WWII”).

KTLA reports:

Convicted serial killer Rodney Alcala has been sentenced to death for killing a 12-year-old Huntington Beach girl and four Los Angeles County women in the 1970s.

Tuesday’s sentencing marked the third time Rodney Alcala has been sent to death row for killing 12-year-old Robin Samsoe.

His two previous convictions for the killing were overturned on appeal.

Thanks to Erin Broadley and Christine Pelisek we can’t get this episode of The Dating Game out of our heads. So way to make a serial killer scarier. Thanks guys.

LA Weekly Found the Creepiest Thing Ever Put on the Internet

So LA Weekly‘s serial killer reporter Christine Pelisek wrote a piece about Rodney Alcala who is believed to have murdered and raped several women. His convictions have been overturned on various technicalities over the years. Well, here is Alcala as Bachelor Number One on The Dating Show in 1978. He’s the one who wins.

Pelisek whole story is here.

Thanks to Erin Broadley for posting this. We’re going to need a combo of Paxil and Comet to recover.

Merry Christmas From FishbowlLA!

Merry Christmas to all you lovely readers and happy lurkers!
