The Two Charlies
People have been writing in to ask me what I meant in an earlier post about there being many Charlies. It's because people don't stop to think about things that something as obvious as this needs to be explained.
The Charlie who takes part in all the stories we have heard is the first Charlie. He's a sometimes good looking, always working the con, hustler, preacher, lover, what have you in his early 30s. He has between 1 and 20 girls at various times who worship him as a savior. He has between 1 and ten boys and men at various times who do the same. He is on his way to a rock career. He just got out of jail and talks a great game. Celebrities listen to his patter and some take him under their wing. He is the Charlie of legend.
Things change during the trial. You can see photos and footage early on of the above Charlie. He's ready to play. He now has worldwide attention and he loves it a lot.
Our basic theory here at the Official T/L Blog is that the BUG, while in the process of getting Charlie for crimes he may not have committed , decided to make Charlie into a Dragon of legend. St George (Bug) then would slay that Dragon (Charlie). But please note- HE COULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT WITHOUT CHARLIE'S COOPERATION. We believe that Charlie is a typical Hollywood animal, a narcissist, an attention whore, who was MORE than ready to be that Dragon. Think about it. Charlie always wanted to be famous. And now he is more famous than almost every other real celebrity of his day.
That is where the second Charlie comes in. He acts crazy and wild because that shows he is a dragon and that gets the attention. And somewhere in there he loses his way and the act becomes reality.
People change. The David Lynch who made a coherent film like THE ELEPHANT MAN does not exist anymore. The Charlie who rants in interviews is a crazy, lunatic, disturbed old man.
But if you believe that he was always thus...then you have played into the game the BUG always wanted you to play.
With Charlie's assistance, of course.
