|She Wants Revenge Week: Written in Blood|
Written in Blood - We wanted to do something that reminded us of some of the tracks from the first album. We broke out a drum machine we used on the first album and made a beat. It definitely felt like something from before, so we added the bass and guitar and it quickly became something we loved. The last thing we added was the cowbell, which seems to be everybody's favorite part. Yeah, yeah, I know, more cowbell..

|Manson Buys Human Remains Instead of Paying Band?|
Madonna Wayne Gacy - real name Stephen Gregory Bier Jr. - made the revelation in new legal papers added to his existing lawsuit against the singer, in which he accuses the star of failing to pay him during his time in the band. Bier filed the original lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in August (07), in which he claims Manson squandered his band's earnings on "sick and disturbing" Nazi memorabilia and a skeleton of a young Chinese girl, among other unusual items.
Bier claims Manson, his business manager, lawyer and the band's manager "filched millions of dollars" from the band's earnings, after promising Bier "partnership proceeds" from the group in 1993. And in the new complaint filed by Bier's lawyer Keith Fink on Wednesday (21Nov07), Bier says Manson bought another skeleton of a man in a wheelchair, and African masks made of human skin - both illegal in the U.S. - according to the New York Post's gossip column PageSix.- more on this story

|Nutty Model Gets off Light for Fatal Suicide Crash|
According to her testimony, the killer, Jeanette Sliwinski, was attempting to commit suicide -- not murder -- when she drove at nearly 90 mph into the back of a car stopped at a red light in 2005. She also apologized to the families of those she killed, saying she did not mean to hurt anyone, although it is uncertain how she expected to hit an occupied car at nearly 90mph without injuring anyone aside from herself.
A defense psychiatrist had testified that Sliwinski, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, suffered from a bipolar disorder with psychotic episodes, leading her to crash her car at 87 m.p.h. into stopped traffic at a Skokie stoplight.- [read more about this and how her attorney blames her doctor for the murders]
