John Hinckley Jr: I’m more than just a failed assassin you guys :(Posted: 2012/03/06
He writes songs and paints landscapes now.
Speaking to his therapist:
“It’s impossible for me to change that. I don’t have a microphone in my hand. I don’t have the video camera. So no one can hear my music. No one can see my art. I have these other aspects of my life that no one knows about. I’m an artist. I’m a musician. Nobody knows that. They just see me at the guy who tried to kill Reagan.”
This made me laugh for a little too long. Maybe you shouldn’t have tried to assassinate the Prez, bro. We’re all frustrated artists… no one would be reading about your landscapes and still life flowers if it wasn’t for the Reagan thing.
(ALSO: okay, fine, who else REALLY wants to see all of his work now??? Dang me and my fascination with crazy.)
