They are literally the coolest thing I’ve ever read. They ought to be published into a book, honestly. They’re just so raw and real and tragic and beautiful. I hope you don’t mind that I read them, but those letters are something incredibly special.
Letter from him (1)
Hey it’s good to hear from you, it’s been a long time. I didn’t think I would ever talk to you again for more reasons than one. I treated you like shit, the way I broke up with you. I’m sorry . For what it’s worth I don’t even know why I broke up with you. I…

The Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral was recorded in the house where actress Sharon Tate was murdered by the followers of Charles Manson.
Despite the house’s notoriety, band frontman Trent Reznor insists that it was not chosen due to its reputation. “I looked at a lot of places, and this just happened to be the one I liked most,” he claimed. Remarkably, Reznor had already moved into the house at 10050 Cielo Drive before a friend discovered its tragic history!
Initially, even Trent himself was a bit creeped out by his new home’s violent past, but he eventually embraced the space, even nicknaming his living room studio “Pig” after the bloody message once scrawled on the house’s front door. Reznor ended up staying at the Tate house from July 1992 until December 1994 and completed The Downward Spiral during 1993. Manson and his former manager are also likely to have been the house’s final residents, as it was torn down shortly after they moved out.
