this might interest some… it’s a letter from Paul I received in 1985.

it makes no sense…. what did you expect? See it here.

    That letter reads like one of Jimdracula’s posts….who knows what it means?

  • Matt says:

    Aw, I thought it was going to be a recent letter from Paul to the fans about his doin’s. This is still cool, though.

  • Jimdracula says:

    It means…

    Darkness at the break of noon
    Shadows even the silver spoon
    The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
    Eclipses both the sun and moon
    To understand you know too soon
    There is no sense in trying

    …or, Jimmy crack corn & I don’t care.

  • Jodi says:

    Matt, if Our Man Paul writes a letter to his fans I promise to e-mail you personally to tell you about it.

  • Placemat says:

    Crackers! Thanks for sharing.

    & It’s Jimmy CRAPPED corn. Everybody knows that.

    so – back when “the shit hits the fans” came out there was a thing in the liner notes saying “please send us mail” – so I did and this is what paul wrote back.
    at the very bottom of the web page is autographs from all 4 mats – a few days after they were on SNL – paul wrote “no more TV” – tommy asked me my name and when I told him “bruce” he wrote “have a nice night frank”
    the napkin w/ autographs in the middle is from a different show – i saw the ‘mats 3 times (5 actually but only 3 with bob and chris)
