Over Charles Manson's dead body: grandson to cremate cult leader's remains

I wouldn't feed Charles Manson's corpse to my dog, let alone fight over it. Not everyone's of the same mind: after a whole lotta legal jibba-jabba, the courts have finally decided on who gets possession of his remains. According to Jezebel, Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, has won the dead cult-leader lottery, having been awarded the right to take possession of his murderous progenitor's remains:

Manson died on November 19th after more than 40 years behind bars, but in all that time it was never agreed upon who would win the rights to his corpse once he finally kicked the bucket. If you thought he’d be quietly cremated and deposited in a dumpster behind a seafood restaurant like he probably deserved, well, you were wrong. It turns out an entire gaggle of people were after the cult leader’s ice-packed remains, including Freeman, longtime pen pal Michael Channels, a musician named Matt Lentz who claims to be his son, and another dude named Michael Brunner who also claims to be his son.

TLC's next unscripted masterpiece is Best Funeral Ever, which is the best idea ever

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that TLC will air a pilot for Best Funeral Ever, a new unscripted show that follows a typical day at Dallas' Golden Gate Funeral Home and all of the wacktastic death parties it hosts. I, for one, think this is one of the smartest ideas for a TV show because unlike all these dippy-ass wedding shows, death truly is forever and worth all the money for one last party. If there is only one thing we all have in common, fellow humans, it's our mortality. It's okay to have smoke machines and BBQ sauce fountains before we peace out for good. Best Funeral Ever will air Wednesday, December 26 at 8:00 PM (Eastern) on TLC. (via Videogum) Read the rest
