CW McCall Best Cannibal Song EVER! (Alfred Packer Story) http://whatgetsmehot.posterous.com/cw-mccall-best-cannibal-song-ever-alfred-pack
THIS IS THE COOLEST WEIRDEST SONG I’VE EVER HEARD (AT LEAST, MAINSTREAM SONG). not only is it by C.W. McCall (he of CONVOY INFAMY), BUT it is, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, ABOUT ALFRED G. PACKER, THE COLORADO MANEATER FROM THE TURN OF THE 20TH CENTURY WHO WENT UP THE MOUNTAIN WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE AND WHO (WHEN A TERRIBLE BLIZZARD HIT), CAME BACK DOWN WITH THOSE SAME PEOPLE…in his STOMACH!
“Stand up yah voracious man-eatin’ sonofabitch and receive yir sitince. When yah came to Hinsdale County, there was siven dimmycrats. But you, yah et five of ’em…”
YEAH, I KNOW. HOW COULD I NOT HAVE LAID THIS ON YOU BEFORE, YOU ASK?
I DON’T FUCKIN’ KNOW!
JUST PROMISE TO READ ABOUT THE AL PACKER PARTY!
…In 1873, Alferd Packer, 31, left with a group of 20 others, Bingham Canyon, UT, near Salt Lake City, into the San Juan Mountains, Colorado to seek wealth mining minerals & gold… the miners soon grew hungry and desperate …they arrived, Jan., 1874 into Chief Ouray’s Ute camp, Colorado, and urged to remain until spring.
…half-eaten human remains,
Slumgullion Pass, near Gunnison River, Lake City, CO.
“Comin’ Back for More” 1999
[co-writer: Chip Davis] from “The Real McCall: An American Storyteller”
Alfred (Alferd) G. Packer
Maneater of Colorado! (January 21, 1842: Allegheny County, Pa April 23, 1907)
remember them, what happened to their slow Marsala celluloid. nope, still not there. all i can think of now is Cannibalism and also, about how when i was in eighth grade, me, and everyone else my age what’s that? adolescence? were obsessed with the book ‘Alive.’
I, perhaps, exponentially, was mega-(the proper word to indicate whatever superlative currently does the job, oh, right! sooo) obsessed, and nearly wet my pants when it came out as movie and i got to see people eat people for the first time.
