It was 40 years ago today…

That’s the future, this is the past. — Irving Azoff referring to Hotel California,released on December 8th 1976…4 years to the day before John Lennon’s death and  40 years ago today. 220px-Hotelcalifornia.jpg

922 – Jose Perdomo

A post from MysteryTramp this afternoon.

Jose Perdomo.

Track with me here please, because even when you start to show the light on the true culprit people still keep flailing in the dark, mainly because they cannot accept the answer I would imagine.

Jose Perdomo selected a group of participants for Operation 40. OK? John Lennon died at 40. So what you say, because this has to be about people no matter how stupid the resulting theories become because there cannot be supernatural warfare taking place because people cannot accept that premise. Right?

Right. Operation 40 takes part in the Bay of Pigs invasion among their other follies. The Bay of Pigs invasion plan was presented to the group in charge of CIA covert operations on December 8th 1960.

Now, you may notice that this date is exactly 20 years before John Lennon’s death. Still about people though, right?

After CIA agent Howard Hunt is identified as part of the Watergate operation, his wife dies in a plane crash, carrying over $10,000 on December 8th 1972. Again, the date John Lennon died on.

Hotel California ends with relax said the nightman, we are programmed to receive, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Release date, December 8th 1976. Coincidence I’m sure…

Then on December 8th 1980 who is the nightman at the Dakota? Oh look, Jose Perdomo from Operation 40.

This is why refusal to see spiritual warfare leads to faulty thinking. People still think somehow, that even though Chapman is standing there and has a gun and has admitted to this for over thirty years, that Perdomo did it because of his CIA involvement.

No. But do I have to keep laying out who did? It’s a breadcrumb trail. How much light does one need? And I would have the exact same opinion if an agency were involved because they still are working for the same spiritual cause, but in most cases the theory to justify this premise becomes monumentally stupid and this is what makes conspiracy theorists look bad.

Chappaquiddick was caused by Ted Kennedy. That’s a fairly substantial clue as to who really was behind the brothers’ fates as well.

922 – Objects of Wrath and Destruction scripted into a fate.

Is it God and the Devil? Ambiguous spirits? I’m not sure, but 922 is quite real…

922 – NUJV

It’s time to start working on the carnival and Ticket to Ride, the theme that appears again and again in 922.

To reiterate, the MDC poster in the Magical Mystery Tour booklet was released on December 8th, 1967, 13 years to the day before John Lennon’s death.

The scene for the movie was shot on September 22nd 1967 (9/22) per Lewisohn.

This is the key communicative device in the foreshadowing of John Lennon’s death, and the clue which all of the PID clues happened to cover up.

Ticket to Ride, and by extension the idea of a carnival, goes farther back though as the song was recorded at the very beginning of the Help! sessions on February 15th 1965.

So the purpose of this post is an open research tool to determine what exactly in a supernatural  sense is trying be communicated through the idea of a Ticket to Ride or a Carnival. Anyone who wants to add in and participate, feel free!

One thing though, if you tell me something like the Beatles were members of or interested in the Brotherhood of Light or the Golden Dawn so they must have purposely caused this, I’ll listen but my focus is on demonic communication through them, not so much what they caused intentionally.

My template for this is they caused 20% of the clues on purpose, the other 80% were done through them and they didn’t realize it until afterwards. The key to this being demonic temptation of people who were being receptive to random input.

So let’s start!

Ticket to Ride, according to Miles through Paul McCartney, could refer to Ryde on the Isle of Wight. Ryde happens to be known for Carnivals.

Wikipedia-Ryde

Carnival

Ryde is noted for its carnivals. There are five throughout the year – an Arts Parade in June; Children’s, Main and Illuminated processions at the end of August and a Lantern Parade in December. The Carnival at Ryde is the oldest in England. Ryde Carnival remains the island’s largest carnival, with local crowds and mainland visitors totalling in excess of 50,000 spectators. Performers consist of community groups, schools, multiple samba and brass bands, stilt walkers and family groups, with over 2,000 performers taking part in August 2006.

In 2001 a London carnival group called Kinetika was brought to the island to teach carnival skills to adults and young people in community workshops. Since Kinetika’s input the carnival has been expanding, with its effects felt throughout the island’s other carnivals. Near Ryde at Westridge is the Arts Council-funded Carnival Learning Centre,[4] where carnival skills and crafts are taught.

McCartney and Lennon apparently alternately hitched and took a train/bus to Ryde and this seemingly is where the title originated although there are other versions of this story as well.

I’m guessing the year to be just Pre-Hamburg in 1960 right now based on internet info, including this. http://www.islandeye.co.uk/history/pubs-hotels-breweries/1606.html

One thing I’ve already noticed in researching the town of Ryde is that it seems to be a haven to theosophists, so the Brotherhood of Light relevance may start right here.

————-

No, there isn’t a carnival here. This is the Doctor Who footage displaying Ticket to Ride from Top of the Pops in 1965.

This is also not about a carnival, it is the lyrics to Artificial Energy by the Byrds.

Sitting all alone now
I took my ticket to ride
Just a matter of time now
Til i’ll be up in the sky.
Coming up on me now
I’m king for a night
What’s it gonna be now?
How willful things are building insight
Do you think it’s really the trip that you seek?
I’ve got my doubts it’s happened to me.
Artificial energy
Is racing in my mind
I’ve got a strange feeling
I’m going to die before my time
Cause i’m coming down off amphetamines
And i’m in jail ’cause i killed the queen.

————-

The Carpenters released Ticket to Ride in 1969. I never looked into it except that the Carpenter is obviously the partner of the Walrus.

————-

Helter Skelter, which Charles Manson took as being a sign of the apocolypse, is actually a carnival ride.

————–

Dark Side of the Moon ends with an orchestra playing Ticket to Ride, below the heartbeat.

—————

Elmer McCurdy was found in a carnival in Long Beach on December 8th 1976, the same day that Hotel California was released.

—————

American Pie references the Father Son and Holy Ghost catching the last train for the coast.

—————-

Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite is also based on a carnival or fair.

—————-

Then of course there is Carnival of Light, done on January 5th 1967 which no one has ever heard.

922 – The Conspiracy

Through the looking glass, a supernatural conspiracy.

Possibly the most famous of false flag operations; the 40+ year hoax of Paul McCartney having died, covering up real clues about the death of John Lennon which were foreshadowed at least 13 years in advance of the event.

It’s Romans 9:22 applied to the modern era…demons that knew when and how someone was going to die before it happened and encoded that knowledge through the music.

——————

Romans 9:22- What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

It’s a simple premise actually. Satan and his demons report to God, they have to obey whether they want to or not. James 1:13 says that God cannot have any part of sin, including tempting it. So, if a person is deemed an Object of Wrath and Destruction as in Romans 9:22, Satan and his demons have to do the work to fulfill this principle because God can’t.

Jerusalem for the crucifixion would have been teeming with demons, simply because God cannot tempt sin so demons have to implement God’s Will. This, puts demons into the position of carrying out operations on occasion that either they do not want to be a part of, or they quite possibly have their own motivations while taking part.

In this case, Nazi aggression is thwarted ultimately when the United States enters WWII. What we see in the process is that, much like Jesus crucifixion, Satan could possibly be actually ordered (my theory) to help bait the United States into the war via Pearl Harbor when clearly Satan would want nothing of the sort to do with anything that would stand in Hitler’s path.

Although Satan is bound to do as ordered, his argument that the United States is hardly righteous and thus is hypocritical in fighting the so-called evil of the Nazis (which of course was the Nazi argument at Nuremberg), leading to a charge being leveled against God that He helps the Jews when they are threatened but does nothing to help the African Americans in the United States who are persecuted.

God will not relent on His decision to help the Jews but sees the point with regards to US racism and agrees to a deal with the devil of sorts.

He will work on the behalf of the African Americans after the war is completed and in exchange the devil asks for and receives a number of Romans 9:22 style Objects of Wrath and Destruction (Lennon, Morrison, the various assassins, etc.) to prove to God that the United States and Great Britain aren’t righteous at all, they can be taken down off their righteous perch with the right temptations put in front of them.

God goes along with this, and this begins the conspiracy, a supernatural coupling of Civil Rights and Rock and Roll; Satan trying to bring down the US and Great Britain and God using it all for good via Civil Rights.

The conspiracy is communicated to us however through a few key dates and a number of synchronicities which take place throughout the next 60 years, primarily focused on the date the US enters WWII, December 8th, and also the date September 22nd (9/22).

September 22nd 1862 – “. . . on the first day of January . . . all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” President Abraham Lincoln, preliminary Emancipation Proclamation

August 16 1938 – Robert Johnson, according to legend, makes a deal with the devil and dies at 27.

1939 – Finnegan’s Wake is released after James Joyce intentionally courts “random” input to try and connect with the spiritual realms, contains the formula for the Atomic Bomb 3 years before it’s invented and has a main character of HCE. Part 2 ends with John for a John, Johnajeams, led it be.

December 8th 1941 – The US declares war after Pearl Harbor and, coupled with Great Britain, thwarts Hitler and the Nazis.

November 27th 1942 – On the 6th anniversary of Robert Johnson writing Crossroads, the German code Enigma is broken by the British. In Seattle, Jimi Hendrix is born this same day.

December 8th 1943 – Jim Morrison is born. His father oversees the fleet in the Gulf of Tonkin which is “attacked” in August of ’64 providing the pretext for the Vietnam War.

January 1947 – Thomas Mann finishes the manuscript to Dr. Faustus, exactly 20 years before the Beatles finish the Lyrics to Sgt. Pepper.

September 22nd 1949 – The Soviet Union explodes their first Atomic bomb.

1951A Streetcar Named Desire opens, with Blanche DuBois instructed to take a Streetcar named Desire and then transfer to one called Cemeteries before winding up on Elysian Fields.

What number is the Streetcar named Desire? Take a look…

March 1955 – Claudette Colvin refuses to give up her seat on a Birmingham AL bus. 17 days later, the Blackboard Jungle is released and Rock Around the Clock becomes the first Rock and Roll phenomenon.

53 years later, the first African-American president will be named Obama and hail from Hawaii.

December 8th 1958 – John Birch Society founded.

February 3rd 1959 – The day the music died. Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper die in a plane crash. 17 year old high school student Bob Dylan watches their 2nd to last performance 3 days earlier. The other Rock and Roll icons to fade away during this time include Elvis (Army), Little Richard (God), Jerry Lee Lewis (cousin), Chuck Berry (prison) and Eddie Cochran (car crash).

December 8th 1960 – The CIA presents their plan to the Special Group for Covert Operations for a limited invasion of Cuba that will be come to be known as the Bay of Pigs.

May 14th 1961 – Freedom rides begin. 922 days later John F. Kennedy will be assassinated.

September 22nd 1961 – The ICC bans segregation at all public transportation facilities nationwide.
December 8th 1961 – The Beach Boys release “Surfin” which starts the rebirth of Rock and Roll culminating with the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in 1964.

April 8th 1963 – Julian Lennon is born precisely 922 weeks after the Hiroshima bomb is dropped.

November 22nd 1963 – JFK assassinated, Aldous Huxley and CS Lewis also die, the Beatles 2nd LP is released and the first broadcast of Beatlemania in the US takes place on the morning of November 22nd on CBS.

Lewis and Huxley, in addition to Lee Harvey in Oswald, spotlights the letters L and H which are the 12th and 8th letters of the alphabet.

December 8 1963 – Frank Sinatra Jr. kidnapped
December 8 1964 – Cal Berkeley faculty responds to 800 student arrests by lifting the prohibition on Student Political Protest on campus.

December 8th 1965 – Britain passes its Civil Rights legislation.

April 8th 1966 – On Julian Lennons third birthday, Is God Dead headlines Time magazine. On page 8 is an obiturary for God which had as a Byline —Atlanta, November 9th.

Sgt Pepper would later have a Hindu doll pointing directly at the ATL in Beatles while the drum when mirrored (see below) was taken by many to be the date November 9th. The first line of Within You Without You would state We were talking about the space between us all which would encompass both the ATL and the drum as being between the 4 Beatles.

In future years the number 3 would take on a prominent significance as well, which most believed to be a Paul is Dead clue; ATL also shows up in the McCartney Album Amoeba’s Secret and Atlanta is also the source of the Run Devil Run Store.

June 1st 1966 – 6/66 arrives, exactly 922 days after the assassination of JFK.

July 29th 1966 – John Lennon’s more popular than Jesus comment is published. Bob Dylan crashes his motorcycle near Woodstock the same day and sits out the remainder of the sixties.

August 13th 1966 – The day after John Lennon apologizes for More Popular than Jesus, radio station KLUE, which held a Beatle record burning after the apology, has its transmission tower struck by lightning and is knocked off the air.

June 1st 1967 – Sgt. Pepper is released to unprecedented fanfare albeit deserved; in the myriad of visual and audio clues throughout the LP is a drum that when mirrored shows a curious foreshadowing, although it will permanently be in dispute in later years exactly what is being pointed at.

Although most everyone takes IoneI X to mean the date of Paul’s supposed death, Come Together will later give a different and blatant interpretation of the trio before X in the line One and One and One is 3.

Paul McCartney will oddly replicate this years later on his Ram LP with the inscription LILY on the cover, then adds to this mystery by placing a LILY behind him during an interview for The McCartney Years, which gives us a chance to see that LILY mirrored is also I II X.

John Lennon will die 13 years after Sgt. Pepper’s release.

December 8th 1967 – Their Satanic Majesties Request from the Stones and Magical Mystery Tour from the Beatles, with the booklet containing the graphic “The Best Way to go is by MDC” with Lennon selling tickets in front of the sign. The scene itself is shot on September 22nd (9/22).

Their Satanic Majesties Request also contains a curious mirrored graphic that may highlight a verse in James.

1968 – Rosemary’s Baby released

June 1968 – Robert Kennedy is killed by Sirhan Sirhan, who is waiting for Kennedy in the kitchen where he only goes because his planned exit route is blocked by well wishers. The Rolling Stones are recording Sympathy for the Devil when Kennedy is killed and changes the word JFK to Kennedys in tribute. Yardbirds guitarist Jimmy Page, while watching the coverage in Birmingham Al, has an epiphany and decides to start a new band.

August 8 1969 – On the day that the Beatles do the cover shoot for Abbey Road, Charles Manson’s group kills Rosemary’s Baby director Roman Polanski’s wife, 9 months pregnant Sharon Tate. The next night their victims include Rosemary LaBianca.

October 12 1969 – On the date that the Paul is Dead conspiracy launches on a Detroit radio station, the Manson ranch is raided. The date also would have been Aleister Crowley’s birthday.

December 8th 1969 – Richard Nixon holds a press conference and details his plan to withdraw from Vietnam. 922 days later the Watergate burglary will occur.

1969 – 1971 – Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all die at 27 years of age, the same age Robert Johnson was.

December 1971 – John and Yoko sing Attica State on David Frost and are then confronted by 2 audience members; the woman asking Yoko point blank what she would do if an Attica prisoner killed one of her family members, sitting next to the audience member is a young man that looks eerily similar to Mark David Chapman.

December 8th, 1972 – Dorothy Hunt, the wife of Watergate accomplice and CIA agent Howard Hunt, dies when Flight 553 crashes in Chicago. She was carrying over $10,000 in cash, found in the wreckage.

1973 – At the end of Dark Side of the Moon, faintly under the heartbeat, is an orchestra playing Ticket to Ride.

1974 – John Lennon in a drunken rage is tied to a bed screaming “It’s all Roman Polanski’s fault”.

April 30th 1975 – On Walpurgis, 30 years to the day after Hitler’s suicide, Saigon falls to the Vietnamese.

1975- The Illuminatus Trilogy spotlights an assassin named HC and ends with an Eagle falling to earth.


December 8th 1976 – The Eagles release Hotel California, “Stab it with their steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast” turned backwards is “John Lennon by himself”

Old West outlaw Elmer McCurdy is found at a carnival in Long Beach by the cast of Six Million Dollar Man while they shoot on location, also on December 8 1976. Thinking Elmer is a mannequin, they go to move him and an arm falls off. Snopes refers to this image as “an Elmer McCurdy event”, apparently unaware that McCurdy was found the same date that Hotel California was released, creating a sort of Number 9/Turn Me On Dead Man synchronicity.

Perhaps even more bizarre is the apparent synchronicity between the songs Hotel California and Revolution Number 9 from 2:36 forward, especially weird given that Hotel California was released 9 years to the day after the MDC poster and that Paul McCartney flew to America and had his first rendezvous with Linda Eastman at the Beverly Hills Hotel on the day John laid down the tracks for Revolution Number 9.

June 20 1977 – 9 years to the day after John Lennon laid down the tracks for Revolution Number 9, Mark David Chapman tries to commit suicide in Hawaii and is stopped by a Japanese fisherman.

August 16 1977 – Elvis dies 39 years to the day after Robert Johnson.

May 4th 1979 – Weeks after the HSCA declares a conspiracy in the JFK assassination, an almost assassination attempt against Jimmy Carter foiled by the secret service by two street guys whose names happened to be Raymond Lee Harvey and Osvaldo Ortiz.

September 22 1979 – I said a hip hop, a hippie, a hippie to the hip hop.

Rapper’s Delight from the Sugarhill Gang, credited as the first rap single.

September 22 1980 – John Lennon signs with Geffen to do Double Fantasy. Yoko’s Kiss Kiss Kiss says “I shot John Lennon” when played in reverse.

December 8th 1980 – John Lennon killed by Mark David Chapman in front of the Dakota, where Rosemary’s Baby was filmed. Chapman announces himself as Holden Caulfield (HC) from The Catcher in the Rye. Pearl Harbor connections include Yoko (Japan), Chapman (Hawaii), December 8th and Roosevelt Hospital where Lennon is pronounced dead.

An ABC correspondent happens to be at Roosevelt Hospital when Lennon is brought in, allowing ABC to jump everyone else on the story which is fed to Howard Cosell (HC) with 3 seconds left in a Monday Night Football game, with Cosell announcing Lennon’s death while New England lines up to kick a field goal in a game tied 13-13. Cosell’s announcement hearkens back to the end of Revolution Number 9 (Hold that line, block that kick). The kick was in fact blocked.

On NBC, a Tonight Show rerun is broken into to announce Lennon’s death as Johnny Carson is talking about the flames from the burning of Atlanta in Gone with the Wind.

Julian Lennon was exactly 922 weeks old, to the day, when John Lennon was killed.

December 8th 1984 – Vince Neil crashes his Pantera and kills Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle Dingley

The same evening, Ringo guests on SNL and does a skit based on Bridge on the River Kwai, the movie that starred William Holden as a character named Shears on the 43rd anniversary of the US entry into WWII.

December 8th 1991 – The Soviet Union disbands

December 8th 2004 – Former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott is shot and killed onstage by Nathan Gale

July 7th 2011 – While working on this post in the Grand Rapids Public Library, Rodrick Dantzler killed 7 people in Grand Rapids. I walked out to the police chase happening on the highway over my head.

Fred LaBour, who wrote the article in Michigan Daily that helped launch Paul is Dead in 1969, and who is responsible for the name William Campbell, is also from Grand Rapids.

Faces in Toast – Fish Delusions (24) – 1966

1966

Now we’re in 1966. Anton LaVey starts the Church of Satan in 1966 and declares this year “Year One”. June 1st after all is in fact 6/66 and quite eerily is exactly 922 days after the assassination of JFK.

Dylan probably christened the era, but 1966 would probably be considered Year One of the sixties also; components of it had been building for quite awhile but this was the year that those ideals started to reach mainstream America.

For some reason, 1966 always comes across to me as sort of the equivalent of the discussion God and Satan had about Job in the Bible, you almost get the feeling that Lennon’s Beatles vs. Jesus comments sort of foreshadow this entire era.

On July 29th, Bob Dylan has his motorcycle accident at Woodstock NY and decides to take the rest of the sixties off, at least from touring; he focuses on his basement tapes and studio work instead.

3 days later, Datebook publishes the John Lennon interview in which he said the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.

I don’t think that Lennon is much more than a pawn because of it, he certainly meant it to be more of an indictment on people’s relative values at the time rather than his own; but he certainly brought the subject to a head very quickly and this is also when the “mysteries” in the Beatles music really started, mainly through John.

In the last post, I debated whether “Paul” could have represented something other than McCartney.

However there’s another possibility. Wouldn’t “Paul is dead” be the ultimate false flag, if there were certain messages really intended to be about John?

I don’t mean a false flag intended by the Beatles; I’m referring more to the possibility that they meant to do one thing by planting “Paul” clues in their songs and Satan intended something different; to hide the fact that there were also other clues that he had “tempted” the Beatles to write that really referred to the fate of John, not Paul.

It would keep everyone occupied on the clues, but trying to apply all of the Faces in Toast to the wrong person. It’s the sort of misdirection that has people believe that Paul died on 11/9/66 when in actuality it is the date that John met Yoko, to show one example. (Although if McCartney really had died, he would have been 24 at the time).

The Walrus was John; the Walrus was Paul; the Walrus was John, to show another.

So, regardless we have a genius who was certainly “built” through childhood hurt that loves to put mystery into everything the Beatles do, starting mainly from 1966 forward.

Me, as well as thousands of others, pour through everything the Beatles did looking for hidden meanings in everything. What do we hope to find? Well I defined what I’m looking for, many looked for “Paul is Dead” clues and others just like the riddles in general.

And the ironic thing about it is, there is plenty there to suggest that something was really being planted, someone really wanted to communicate something to us; and yet I almost get the feeling that the search for Beatles riddles became its own vehicle to destruction.

And yet, it seems impossible to believe that the “psychosis” is just a series of coincidences. But in misinterpreting the meanings, the search for the riddles attached actually served to fuel evil itself.

Even after Lennon’s apology (you guys have taken this totally out of context and I’m sorry you did that, and also that I said what I said, allowing you to…), groups are still sponsoring rallies to burn Beatle records; radio station KLUE (yes, it actually reads clue) in Texas organizes one such burning on August 13th.

On August 14th, still in protest mode, their broadcast tower gets struck by lightning, putting the program director in the hospital and knocking the station off the air indefinitely.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KLUE

No other clues are forthcoming as to just Whose bolt it was…

While Dylan and the Beatles still command most of the popular attention, a group of musicians that has been convening in the hills of Los Angeles is spearheading a movement in the United States against a Vietnam War that is now growing beyond anyone’s level of comfort.

While the Beach Boys, the Byrds, and the Mamas and the Papas have carved a well-deserved place for themselves early in the sixties movement, others such as Frank Zappa are just arriving in the global Pop Culture scene in 1966 although having already been very prominent in the Laurel Canyon scene prior to 1966.

Admiral George Morrison’s son Jim, with a birthday of December 8th, is part of that group; his band The Doors are the house band at a fledgling LA club called the Whisky-A-Go-Go when it opens in 1966 although Jim is initially very shy and stands mostly with his back to the crowd.

But after watching unrelated artist Van Morrison perform in June, Morrison undergoes a startling stage transformation over the course of the summer of ’66 and adopts what he later terms his Lizard King persona.

By August, Morrison and The Doors are signed to a recording contract when Morrison decides without anyone else’s knowledge to improvise an Oedipus section into a standing song of theirs called The End during a performance at the Whisky.

The resulting performance as portrayed here by Val Kilmer both got the Doors fired from the Whisky on the spot and was transferred to vinyl within a few days; the Doors went from an unpolished but very unique band to one of the sixties most haunting acts within the span of a couple of weeks.

Producer Paul Rothchild said this about the recording session of The End:

“The most awe-inspiring thing I have ever witnessed in a studio.” For the recording, the studio was completely darkened except for the lights on the recording console and a single candle burning next to Jim. “I was totally overwhelmed. Normally, the producer sits there just listening for all the things that are right and anything about to go wrong, but for this take I was completely sucked up into it, absolutely an audience.”

“We were about six minutes into it when I turned to Bruce and said ‘Do you understand what’s happening here? This is one of the most important moments in recorded rock ‘n’ roll.’ It was a magic moment. Jim was doing The End, doing it for all time, and I was pulled off, right on down his road. He said come with me and I did. And it was almost a shock when the song was over – it felt like, yes, it’s the end, that’s the end, that’s the statement, it cannot go any further. When they were done, I felt emotionally washed. I had goose bumps from head to foot. For one of the very first times in rock ‘n’ roll history, sheer drama had taken place on tape…Bruce was also completely sucked into it. His head was on the console, and he was just absolutely immersed in the take – he became part of the audience, too. So the muse did visit the studio that night, and all of us were audience. The machines knew what to do, I guess.

It was magic.”

“Magic” sounds rather cliche’ until you consider that the world went from Bobby Vinton and Blue Velvet to this, in 2 1/2 years. To be more precise, from the Beatles appearance on Ed Sullivan to the Doors signing with Elektra was again, 922 days.

The Wizard of Oz is released. The book contains 24 chapters and the final one closes with Dorothy returning home to tell her aunt about the wonderful land of Oz that she has just returned from.

Finnegans Wake is also released by James Joyce and foreshadows virtually everything, including properties of the Nuclear bomb which have yet to be invented. “John for a John, led it be” being the most prescient line.
