Gimme Skelter

On December 6th, 1969, The Rolling Stones performed the final set at a free concert at the Altamont Raceway in Northern California. The Hell's Angels were hired as security for the event.
After the song 'Under My thumb', concert goer Meredith Hunter was stabbed to death by a Hell's Angel.
This heinous tragedy is known as the day the '60s and the hippy movement died.

It is claimed that Hunter wielded a gun, inciting the stabbing in self-defense. An object can be seen in Hunter's hand when viewing the footage of the incident.
It is said that Meredith Hunter wielded a revolver.

What I find interesting is that in the 1968 film Wonderwall, there is a character in a lime green suit. He is a photographer... shooting photos.

George Harrison composed the soundtrack for the film, which was released in the US on December 2nd, 1968. Exactly almost a year before the Altamont concert. It was also the first Apple release.

Aleister Crowley died on either December 1st or December 2nd of 1947, there is debate between the two dates.

In one of the many scenes without dialogue, the photographer opens this case containing dueling pistols. Notice even the lime green interior.

He then watches a sword duel, and seems to be wielding a knife.

The photographer also drives an all lime green car.

Oddly enough, it is George who wears lime green pants on the rooftop performance in January 1969.

Suki Potier is also in Wonderwall. She was with Tara Browne the night he died in his car accident. And she then dated Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones.
Anita Pallenberg is also in the film. She dated both Brian Jones and Keith Richards.
The lead female character in Wonderwall is a model named Penny Lane, played by Jane Burkin.

Hugo Williams has this to say about Tara Browne:  
"In his green suits, mauve shirts with amethyst cuff-links, his waves of blonde hair, brocade ties and buckled shoes, smoking menthol cigarettes (alwaysSalem) and drinking Bloody Marys, he was Little Lord Fauntleroy, Beau Brummell, Peter Pan, Terence Stamp in Billy Budd, David Hemming in Blow-Up." 

Hunter's original tombstone read "Lot 63 Grave C", but has since been replaced with a proper one.
Three sixes?
C = 3

George Lucas was one of the cameramen filming the concerts that day.

The dueling scene in Wonderwall.
as you can see, the duel does end with one man being stabbed, albeit in British humor fashion.

The Riddler wears a lime green suit.

Jim Carrey as The Riddler in Batman Forever is all about mind reading and mind control.
Attaching a mind-manipulating device to Two-Face.

Experimenting on himself, and on Ed Begley Jr.'s character.

Carey's Riddler has dyed orange hair.

James Holmes exclaimed, "I am The Joker!" as he opened fire in the theatre.
Katie Holmes starred in Batman Begins.

in A Clockwork Orange, Alex is mind-controlled via Beethoven's 9th Symphony. (as was the tiger in Help! Ringo plays Ludwig brand drums)

The LSD that the Manson family was taking in the weeks surrounding Sharon Tate's murder was called Orange Sunshine. Which was also in abundant supply at the Altamont concert.

It is strongly indicated that Charles Manson was in the very prison ward that MK Ultra experiments were conducted in. Best source I can find so far:

Alex in A Clockwork Orange was subjected to mind control experiments while in jail.
Beethoven's 9th Symphony was part of that experiment.
Manson took the song Revolution #9 as an inspiration for his beliefs, interpreting it as Revelations 9.

In the novel A Clockwork Orange, the prison chaplain is called "the charlie" and "the charles", he encourages the prisoners to read their Bible, which Alex does in earnest.

It's interesting that Alex learns his friend Georgie died right before he gets experimented on.
All in the same paragraph, Alex also mentions that a Professor would come and give talks to the prisoners "on beetles or the Milky Way or the Glorious Wonders of the Snowflake."

Further linking Beethoven's 9th with The Beatles, in the film, we do not see what Alex went to the record store to pick up.
In the novel, after Alex hands the employee the note, he is told, "Good news, good news, it has arrived." When the clerk returns, he's "waving the great shiny white sleeve of the Ninth, which had on it, brothers, the frowning beetled like thunderbottled listo of Ludwig Van himself."

Also interesting that author Burgess has Alex describing his experience listening to music as "a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal." Bringing to mind the term "Heavy Metal". Remember, this book was published in 1962. (Kubrick used the line in the film, as well).

When Alex is being interrogated at the police station, one of the cops pushes the wound on Alex's nose with his thumb.
"Under My Thumb"

Jack MacGowran, the actor that played The Professor, the main character in Wonderwall, also played The Professor, the main character, in Polanski's 1966 film The Fearless Vampire Killers, which also starred Sharon Tate. In the film, her mother was played by Jessie Robbins, Ringo's aunt from Magical Mysterty Tour.

Just 5 months before the Altamont concert, Manson's followers murdered Sharon Tate.

Jack MacGowran also starred in How I Won The War, along side Lennon.

Notice a beheaded Lennon in the bullseye.

Sunshine Superman

Donovan with Mia Farrow (who played Supergirl's mother) and The Beatles in India, where they wrote the majority of The White Album, which was a major influential factor on Manon's beliefs.

News article from Wonderwall:

"Top hat riddle in Penny Lane's gas-filled flat."
The main character, The Professor played by Jack MacGowran, was wearing a top hat when he went into her apt.
Meredith Hunter

Also notice the writer on the left of the newspaper is named Bernard Levin. A reference to Rosemary's Baby author Ira Levin? The film of which came out the same year as Wonderwall.
Wonderwall is a sync gold mine. See another post on it here.

It's also syncnificant that the two news headlines for this first weekend in December 1969 competing for space were of the Altamont stabbing, and Susan Atkins delivering her first testimony to a grand jury in which she detailed the gory murders of Sharon Tate & her house guests.

On December 6th, 1909, Aleister Crowley and Victor Neuburg, while in the Sahara Desert, evoked the infamous Choronzon.
The result was what is known as the "10th Aethyr". One part of his famous volume entitled The Vision and The Voice (Liber 418).

60 years to they day before the Altamont concert. Remember the Wonderwall soundtrack was released on the anniversary of Crowley's death.

Choronzon is described by Sir Edward Kelly as, "that mighty devil, as the first and deadliest of all the powers of evil. Rightly so, for although he is not a person, he is the metaphysical contrary of the whole Process of Magick."

*Kirsten Dunst was also in Eternal Sunshine, and played a red-head in Spiderman.
And Kate Winslet has dyed red hair in some scenes in Eternal Sunshine, her character's name is Clementine.
(Notice Clementine's shirt says, "love is..." we never see the rest. Alluding to Crowley's "Love is the Law"?)

*Interesting that Jim Carrey chipped the same tooth as McCartney in the same place. And rides a moped in Dumb & Dumber. (McCartney chipped his tooth crashing on a moped)

*There is debate over whether Meredith Hunter was attacked after 'Under My Thumb' or 'Sympathy For the Devil', because of an apparent, possible edit in the film. And apparently nobody there was sober enough to remember.
Which ever it was, interesting that the group Metric has a song titled 'Gimme Sympathy', which is about the Rolling Stones and George Harrison's song 'Here Comes the Sun'.
In the video, the members of the band seem to have the ability to swap bodies. Also interesting; the children running around at the end of the video wearing butterfly wings. Monarch mind programming nod?

And here's an interesting film about deported British children titled Oranges and Sunshine.

Speaking of terrible stabbings in 1969 and Batman villains,
Read this post on Sharon Tate and her connections with The Black Dahlia, The Joker, Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles.

Great post. I noted it in my new piece "Sunshine supermen."

Thanks, yours post was enjoyable, as well.

Did you know the LaBianca house is within minutes of Griffith park?
The house my grandparents have owned since the '40s is also in that neighborhood.

On Always Record #90, Mark LeClair brought up a good point I hadn't thought of; Superman flies around Earth to spin it backwards and reverse time, much like "We'll all be Magick Supermen" is backwards.
I would add that it's interesting that dung beetles ROLL their STONE of dung backwards.

Hey...some very interesting links and connections. Lime green Harrison would, of course, eventually (and in a related manner) be stabbed by the 33 year old that 'failed' masonic hit! I just found this post by chance and the way it links with my current post is somewhat interesting. :)

the whole Alatamont concert was recorded by an fan near the front with a small cassette player and is posted on youtube.Seems like the stabbing is during Sympathy and not when they play Under my thumb
