  1. There are so many images and words from Spahn way
    and some images seem to always stay
    but let’s look at some of what was cool and mellow there to be fair
    to the Spahner’s I say

    because some people judged those kids and said:

    that they couldn’t see the hills for the weed and the trees
    but can’t you all see
    they were young and they were free
    just hangin’ around laughing and walking
    skippin’ along
    there’s the stream and that sunshine
    and that natural breeze keeps them wondering and living
    can you see they had that time for dreamin’
    then what came around
    well we came from your society and your towns
    there they all were and now what’s done is gone
    and like you and time
    everyone yeah you and I had our own songs
    we have all done right and wrong
    and from now on…
    let’s move on

  2. hi did you see any of that new documentary titled-Inside the Manson Cult-The Lost Tapes- yeah, but, inside? Aren’t we looking at it from the outside? Aahh…lost tapes? If they’re lost, how come we’re looking at ’em? And something new in ’em? Like what? Some more footage of the gang at Planet Spahn? Look around, I said to myself and I leaned forward and squinted and watched and I searched the back of my mind (I know, you’re thinking… that’s a scary thought) to compare what’s there and what I’m seeing. There were a few statements by some Spahners but it was the same attitudes they had to some things. And, also, we see the same old Helter Skelter stuff and words like Cult and some of the ‘kids’, every other one looking like they’re in their 30’s, jumping and dancing around, just as in other videos and documentaries. And there’s creepy, dirty old Clem Grogan and Nancy Pitman swaying together like loose-limbed zombies and Clem grabbing Sandy from behind and groping her chest…come on…keep watching, there’s TJ Walleman with the bald head and the Chia Pet on his face, oh, it’s his beard. He’s sitting with Mary Brunner, Clem and Gypsy Share being interviewed and they said…whatever. It wasn’t long before most of ’em, the phony hippy ones, were singing different songs and distancing themselves from our three dears, Susan, Patricia and Leslie and our brother, later to be really wise, Charlie. But yes, I know, as most of you do, that they, the ones I mentioned above, aside from the four that went to prison, well, like Susan and Leslie, never killed anyone, though these two were guilty of crimes and deserved to serve time and so on.
    Dianne and Gypsy were interviewed for this show and there was footage from an interview or two, with Paul Watkins from long ago. And good guy Brooks Poston was with Paul there too. How come they didn’t even have Linda in the show? Or some more of the weasly guys that took off once there was no more free room and board, pot and sex at Spahn, well…you know…
    Susan liked soda pop and candy and she had a joint don’t you know. I had a lighter and so– This Is For Susan–“I keep climbing on rainbows but Sadie that’s how my mind goes”
    that’s something that was done to me done to my head-that was you and the 60’s
    “are dreams only for those who sleep- though life is for us to keep.” ( a little paraphrase and borrow from the band Bread, the song-Make It With You, from 1970, a moody, dreamy, beautiful song. Many people around America and the world say that god is forgiving so Sadie here goes
