True Crime
I post mostly Columbine related stuff on this blog; but this is a true crime blog.

so i just finished this movie called “beautiful boy” you can go the imdb page by clicking here so its was about a kid (sam) who was really shy and alone and he couldnt take it anymore killed 17 students in his school and then shot himself there was a character called eric and his sons name was…

I find it weird that no matter how much time I spend away from Columbine, every time I decided to look back on my blog and look at anything Columbine, it all just comes back.

I don’t think this part of me will ever go away, and I don’t really know how I feel about that.

I get the feeling Cullen has somewhat of a crush on Dylan.

Well, it seems to me that Cullen may identify with Dylan a bit.  Cullen grew up in a Chicago suburb and had to deal with being a closeted gay kid in a white-bread high school much like Columbine, so he didn’t feel as if he fit in, either:

Elk Grove HS grad relates story of Columbine killers, survivors

Cullen, 48, is openly gay now but was in the closet at the time he went to Elk Grove High School. He said he felt like a misfit then and contemplated killing himself.

What Cullen didn’t expect to find when he started delving into their lives and minds was similarities between theirs’ and his own high school experience.

"The Columbine suburbia and the Northwest suburbs of Chicago are really similar in a lot of ways," Cullen said. "It definitely helped me writing the book having gone to a similar kind of high school."

The most telling passage:

Pouring over the roughly 1,000 pages of manic musings of Harris and Klebold, Cullen saw parallels between Klebold and himself as teenagers who felt like fishes out of water.

Lonely and depressive, Klebold saw the world through dark-colored glasses and viewed his life as miserable. He was mostly angry at himself and highly suicidal.

"When I was a kid, I had really low self esteem and had trouble fitting in," said Cullen. "In high school, for me, it felt like no matter what I did I was still going to be that total dork. Very much like Klebold, I mostly blamed myself.”

Dylan looking at the world through dark-colored glasses.  (Yes, in fact, I am being really stupid and lame here…)

Sigh…this seems to happen more and more lately. Fortunately this one, in Rogersville, Tennessee, was caught before it happened.

Hawkins teens accused of planning school massacre studied Columbine

Authorities say the boys, who are now 16 and 17, even studied the 1999 Columbine school…

Rachel’s Insecurities
Like many teenagers, Rachel Scott had insecurities. The only thing Rachel was self-conscious about was her profile. When she was 5 years old, she tripped on the sidewalk and broke her nose. It left a small bump on the bridge of her nose. Rachel was always worried that people were staring at it when they talked to her.

Unlike Eric’s writings, which were full of anger and threats, Dylan’s diary paints a picture of a shy, lonely and self-loathing kid who wrote love letters and doubted that anyone would ever understand him. He wrote at length about the “zombies” of the world, stating, “The meek are trampled, the assholes prevail, the gods are deceiving, lost in my little insane asylum… I have lost my emotions, like in ‘Hurt’, the song, NIN. People eventually find happiness. I never will. Does that make me a non-human? Yes, the god of sadness…” 
  Dylan wrote at length about a girl he admired from afar as his “soulmate,” although he indicated that she didn’t return his feelings. “Unfortunately, even if you did like me the slightest bit, you would hate me if you knew who I was,” he wrote. 
  Another entry featured “I love you” in big letters, and multiple drawings of hearts. Beside them Dylan wrote, “I hate this non-thinking stasis. I’m stuck in humanity. Maybe going NBK with Eric is the way to break free.

Remember that time when people were editing Eric and Dylan’s faces on to Jesus’s body.

I WILL NOT be participating in any type or form of April Fools day pranks in anyway. I wanted to post this a few days in advance so I can reblog it a couple times before the 1st. Please be careful on the internet that day, people like to post things that  seem harmless but can trigger others (such as jump scares and the like). I just want to let my followers know that I won’t be posting anything other than my normal posts (art and stuff) on April 1st.
