In his epic interview with Jan Wenner “Lennon Remembers,” John Lennon says that one night in the midst of a deep acid trip he discovered the meaning of life. Realizing that he probably wouldn’t remember it once he came down, he excitedly realized he could dictate it into a tape recorder he kept at the foot of his bed. When he woke up the next morning he was initially crestfallen, remembering that he’d had the meaning of life in his grasp—then he remembered the tape recorder. He giddily rewound the tape, and when he played it back there was John’s voice speaking in tongues—pure gibberish sounds for 60 minutes.
For some reason Charles Manson recently felt compelled to send a postcard to Marilyn Manson (maybe he got confused and thought they were relatives?), and while Manson’s note does contain actual words the net effect is basically the same—total gibberish. Transcript below via BuzzFeed.
To Marilyn Manson –
It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance. Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007
