Triple convicted child killer Damien Echols is still finding new and clever ways to skirt around the Son of Sam laws. In his desperate attempt to try to stay relevant, he of the West Memphis 3 has written a book about ‘magick’. What is magick you may ask? Magick is basically a catch-all term for anything that could be considered mystical. Think crystals and all that crap.
Echols describes his screed like this…
“I used magick—the practice of reshaping reality through our intention and will—to stave off incredible pain, despair, and isolation,” says Echols. “But the most amazing feat of all that practice and study was to manifest my freedom. Magick is an incredibly deep, meaningful, spiritual tradition that equals the Eastern practices of Buddhism and Taoism in beauty. It’s an ancient discipline that lets you literally change reality by working with the divine energies of creation.”
Could Damien Echols be any further up his own ass? If I was a Buddhist, I’d be pissed that this violent sociopath is using my belief system to peddle his snake oil while making his blood money off of the brutal murders of three children. You know, the murders he’s trying to ‘reshape the reality’ of.
Echols continues to exhibit his tendency to have the mentality of a 12-year-old goth girl when describing his experience ‘writing’ the book.
“I consider this book to be the culmination of my life’s work. When I finished it I was in a hotel room in Boulder, Colorado, the most beautiful blizzard I’d ever seen in my life was happening outside my window. I felt as if I’d accomplished perhaps the biggest chunk of my life’s purpose. Wave after wave of contentment and profound happiness rolled through me for weeks afterwards. This is the fulfillment of a dream I have held since childhood – to contribute in some way to the history and preservation of the practices of ceremonial magick.”
You know who else who had childhood dreams?
Your victims, Mikey. The ones whose lives you brutally snuffed out before they even had a remote chance to fulfill their dreams, and you continue to try to extend your 15 minutes by desecrating their memories.
Anyone who buys this book is nothing more than a fool who parts with his money too soon. The money would be better spent buying yourself a clue, a personality and a life.
