Well, he's not Gein, but he holds a special place in my heart...

Richard Chase Livejournal Community

A new group for discussion, fiction, and art related to serial killer Richard Chase. Chase is famous for his vicious murders of dogs, cats, and humans; the bodies of these victims were often sodomized, drained of blood, and devoured. All in all, a real go-getter. And he did it all to replenish his blood supply, as his soap-dish observations had confirmed that his heart was shrinking and his veins were filling with powder. And Nazi UFO's, too. Serious discussion is welcome, as is ironic fanart/fic. Plus, we have t-shirts. Seriously, join up.

Hey guys, what's up. I'm Julie. I'm 19. Umm, I live in Wisconsin, about 5 miles away from plainfield. I actually go there quite often because they have 2 pretty nice head shops. :p Anyway, I've been fascinated with Ed Gein for like 5 years now, ever since I've heard about him. I've done multiple speeches and papers on him for school, so I've researched him lots read his biographies, etc.

Just saying hey, add me if you'd like.

it never ceases to amaze me how interested people are in Ed Gein. Its craziness! i live here! Im ami's best friend (yay) and i have lived here for about 8 years now. we moved from madison, where Ed was placed in a mental hospital a couple miles from our house. when we moved we had no idea it was the same plainfield in the news, so when we got here it was kinda a surprise. it seems like every week we have someone say something to us about ol' Eddie. it makes life interesting i guess...

Yeah, so I'm new and stuff... Just thought I'd say hi...
I live in Wisconsin, and whaddaya know, my mom met Gein. Why? Because while he was in the psych ward, he became friends with my great-uncle. (We're not gonna get into why he was in there...) But, yeah, my uncle brought her up a few times and she met him. They [Gein and my great-uncle] were friends and went bowling and talked and stuff.
That's about all I have to say...

another song based on our Eddie!! [17 Jan 2005|04:55pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Well I'm not sure how many of you know of, or listen to, the Aussie-wide radio station Triple J. (Obviously, you'd have to be living in Australia... lol)
Anyway, the other day I was listening to the two announcers Terri & Ross, and Terri says, "Here's an interesting song... in fact, quite disturbing!"

The song is called "Lotion" and it's by a band, i think they're called the Greens keepers. Anyway, the lyrics include something about after eating her heart he'll take her soul, then "Use your skull as a bowl".
I'd just finished reading a book about Ed, so I rang up Terri and told her about it! She told me that the lyrics used words from the movie Silence Of The Lambs, and I told her about Ed Gein and how he inspired that movie. She was fascinated, and I told her all about the book I'd read. I felt pretty happy, educating somebody else about Ed.

Anyway, that's the song, if you're interested.
Also, for anybody who'd like to read a good and reasonably thorough book about Ed, the one I just finished is called "Ed Gein: Psycho" and it's written by Paul Anthony Woods.

Wow, this seems like a happenin' place to be [13 Jan 2005|05:07pm]

[ mood | amused ]

I see that most of the entries lately have been from the newbies, but hey. I'm new too. I recently saw Psycho practically for the first time, when I first saw it, I had a weak stomach, but this time, I fell in love.

Anyhow, I got into serial killers from reading this book called "Watch Me" by A.J. Holt. It's pretty good but it seems like it would make a good tv movie: bad ending.

So much for my story.

I wanna hear all the stories I can (without the research). Anyone got any especially gruesome?

Hey all, I'm new to this community.
The first time I learned of Ed Gein's crimes, I was a little grossed out to say in the least... but I've just finished reading a book about his life, which I started yesterday. Yeah, I was pretty keen to read it lol!! It was a really interesting book and I'm truly fascinated by him.
Having read in depth about his childhood, I can't help but feel really sorry for him...
But anyways, I'm not exactly an expert on Ed, but I do enjoy reading about him and such, so I figured it'd be a decent reason for me to join. =)

hello everyone.

I am new to this community.

I recently picked up the special edition copy of the texas chainsaw massacre. It included a documentary about the life and legacy of Ed Gein. It was very interesting and i learned a lot of things about him. I am looking to find more information about him in the future.

As many of you already know, he was provoked by his mother. She wouldn't let him do shit or see girls or do anything fun all that good stuff. So he eventually saw her as like a godly figure, the only person in his life...until she died. Of course he tries to bring her back to life, byt robbing corpses from the graves. I found out he would read obituaries and on the night of the burial he would dig the body up when the soil was fresh.

I found his murders rather interesting...in particular, the murder of Bernice Worden.

...some people are sick.

...that's why i love ed gein

Hi [24 Oct 2004|09:09pm]

[ mood | nerdy ]

Hi, I'm Paula I'm new here. I'm 14 years old right now and I live in Canada. I was very interested in cirme when I was about 10 or 11 years old, watching shows like forensic scientists and that was basically it I got out of it for a while but now I'm 14 and decided to go to www.crime-library.org and read about serial killers like Albert Fish, Ted Bundy, Charles Manson and the Manson family, Ed Gein and others.
Anyways, I have a question for you guys, what makes a serial killer? Is it exposure to abuse at an early age? Rejection by peers or family members or basically society? Or are some people just born evil? Most serial killers were abused at an early age and that's what caused them to have such violent fantasies of playing the abuser rather than the "abusee". Others were sadists and had a very low "thrill-level" and felt sexually pleasure when stabbing a victim/torturing them. Some had a certain opinino which they wished to carry out. One serial killer, son of sam seemed to hate women so he killed women, and that's why he killed. Though, there was one serial killer who is quite interesting. Jeffrey Dahmer, was raised in a perfectly normal enviornment. Yet he still grew up to be a serial killer. Jeffrey' father explains tht he himself was a bit anti-social and that trait was passed down the Jeffrey. Except it worsened, and the onle way Jeffrey could talk to/be comfortable with people was when they were dead.
What do you think?
