Hardman Charlie Bronson

Charles Bronson

Michael “Mickey” Gordon Peterson, d/b/a Charlie Bronson in the British prison system, is one of the craziest men alive. Originally sentenced to seven years for an armed robbery, he has now spent over 30 years of his life (he is 57) confined to a solitary cell due to his notoriously violent behavior directed towards his captors and the structures that have kept him locked away from human interaction for so long. The English prison system sentenced him to a lifetime of solitary for his malevolence, abandoning all hopes for rehabilitation, but Charlie never gave up on himself. Over the last decade he’s quit fighting and taking hostages, preferring to spend his time exercising, writing, and creating art.

You’ve really gotta check out the 2008 film about the guy, “Bronson,” directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (a Dane1). It seems pure accuracy was not Refn’s intent, setting out instead to make a film that depicted Charlie the way he actually saw himself during the years of his life when he was proudly, dedicatedly programmed for chaos. Visually, Larry Smith, the “Bronson” cinematographer, seems to have take some cues from working on the set of “Eyes Wide Shut” as a lighting cameraman back in ’99. The music in the film is also very good. I should also mention that Tom Hardy was decreed Best Actor by the British Independent Film Awards in 2009 for his role as the titular colossal man himself (he, too, is colossal).

So let’s open the file and learn more about this fascinating man.

In this scene, Matt King as “Paul” probably has the best line in a movie since “FUCKA YOUUUU” in “Pineapple Express.” You can also see how hard Charlie was/is along with how great the music works in the film.

Just one of the twelve books Charlie has published.

Charles Bronson's daily routine in solitary

A letter dating back to 2007 from Charles to Mal at detailing his daily routine in solitary confinement. Click here to see it typed out. Can anyone figure out what it says after “10PM strip wash”? Something like “Lights out for James Wane know Talk Back show. (Brill).” Tough one.

Charley Morris's letter to Charles Bronson

A letter from eight-year-old Charley Morris to the governor of Her Majesty’s Prison, Woodhill, U.K.

But there are still some pieces of art available here. Some of it was recently exhibited in the London Underground, but promptly and mysteriously removed.

In 1998, Bronson took two Iraqi hijackers and another inmate hostage at Belmarsh prison in London. He insisted his hostages address him as ‘General’ and told negotiators he would eat one of his victims quickly unless his demands were met. At one stage, Bronson demanded one of the Iraqis hit him “very hard” over the head with a metal tray. When the hostage refused, Bronson slashed his own shoulder six times with a razor blade. He later told staff: ‘I’m going to start snapping necks – I’m the number-one hostage taker.’ He demanded a plane to take him to Cuba, two Uzi sub-machine guns, 5,000 rounds of ammunition, and an axe.

charlie's door

This cast-metal toy model of the door in Charlie’s cell is numbered out of 131. Not everyone gets a toy made for them.  Like the kind of toy you can order online or sell in freaky comic shops. There are two more pieces planned to come, all three different models will supposedly fit together, and you can’t be promised to be sold the second or third models unless you ordered the first one. You know what? Screw toyheads and their rules.

Lastly, the bloke’s clothing line, Bronson, dropped this week. And it apparently features one of Charlie’s “Birdman” refrains on a tee. I think it looks great in this photo, really fucking great.

Charlie retied me in a different way. He tied my left arm to my body and then tied my wrists together. I was still convinced I was going to die. Charlie found a snooker cue and then with a bandage he began to bind the handle of the knife to the end of the cue. The result was a spear. Charlie held the spear by his side and then began marching up and down like a soldier. It was as if he was in some kind of trance. I thought I was going to be sacrificed on the snooker table.

  25. Clara Bühring-Uhle ist nicht unser Kunde. Hier versucht ein neidischer Mitbewerber eine frei erfundene Bewertung zu schreiben. Diese Bewehrung ist schwachsinnig. Es würde jemand auch was reinschreiben und nicht nur ein minus geben. Wir sind einer von den besten Schlüsselnotdiensten.

  26. Nach dem Weihnachtsmarktbesuch stellte ich fest, dass mein Schlüssel weg war. Unter anderen Schlüsseldiensten auch den Schlüsseldienst Klein angerufen. Herr Klein war sehr freundlich und hat einen kompetenten Eindruck gemacht. Ich habe nur 15 Minuten warten müssen. Transparente und überzeugende Vorabinformationen und Preisangaben. Er hielt sich an die Preisabsprache, die er am Telefon gemacht hatte. Ich kann den Schlüsseldienst Klein absolut empfehlenIch wünsche Ihnen frohe Weihnachten und weiterhin erfolgreiche Geschäfte.

    Hello. I’ve a issue about telekinesis.? Two days ago i
    began telekinesis and i just can shake the psy steering wheel.

    I cannot rotate it . I rotate it just a little bit when i close my eye.
    Make sure you help me. How to rotate it? Okay, get ready for a problem.
    Telekinesis is definitely a psi ability and essentially all such capabilities are the results of neurological
    activity in the human brain– therefore you can’t just state,
    “Hey, I will end up being psychic today” and have that happen. For just about any psi capability to take place,
    certain conditions must be met– which explains why everybody
    running around does not have them. And just why
    not all psychic folks have the exact same abilities. Telekinetics (“teeks”), create an unique
    7 Hz theta brainwave design that a lot of people can’t– and don’t– produce when awake.
    Telekinesis *can* be discovered, but the same way you learn to control your heartrate or lower the temperatures in your still left hand.
    It requires, time, practice, and a lot of effort. If you
    don’t have got latent TK skills, this will not be something you
    can master per day, or a week, or maybe even a 12 months..
    Become happy you can get any results at all, and keep practicing if you
    want any outcomes. Also learn a theta meditation to get you into theta.
    Or see a hypnotherapist; while costly, hypnosis has helped some individuals become telekinetic.
    But to reply to your specific question, one technique is to imagine it spinning
    until it begins to really spin. Another technique is to state to
    it, “Spin! Spin! Spin!” When you get into the zone, it will become possible for you move it anyway you want, which includes forward and backward.
    The hardest component gets into that 7 Hz theta condition– not really
    7.5 Hz or 6.82 Hz but 7.00 Hz. Why that frequency– no one knows.
    But that’s when it works. You can also try biofeedback, but that
    can cost ya a lot of money. Also, I will point out
    that most people have hardly any psi energy.

    This means that many may be able to move a bottle cap through TK, but that’s it.
    Super-teeks like Uri Geller and Nina Kulagina are the psychic equivalents of Arnold Schwartenegger– few have the type of TK powers you discover in movies, TV,
    and comic books.
