hey, so I was recording music with my friend a couple of years ago on a four track cassette machine and we started talking for whatever reason... months later I went to play the tape back again. I put the tape in the machine on the wrong side and it played back what I heard as the words "hail bong why" because when you use the reverse side of the tape it will play the original side that was recorded backwards,,, so flipped the tape over to hear what the audio sounded like in the original direction that it was recorded in and what I hear as "hail bong why" when the tape plays backwards, I can hear as "I don't know like" with guitar feedback some how influencing what sounds like entirely my voice when the clip of sound is played in the the original direction that it was recorded... So IRL I don't know anybody that doesn't lie to me, or anybody that I can think to ask if this really says "hail bong why" that wouldn't think that I was crazy or think I'm crazy and hear it as "hail bon why" or whatever... i should note that a lot of the people that i say would lie to me, might not be liars, but people that suffer from shared auditory hallucinations with me.... here's a link to the clip played backwards three times in a row: http://markandsamantha.net/hailbongwhy.mp3 here's what it sounds like slowed down: http://markandsamantha.net/bong.wav if you want to play the song forward you can just download this program http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and open the file in the "effect" tab and go to "reverse" and you will hear "I don't know like"... So the reason why I really want to know if this really says "hail bong why" is because I'm going to the west coast from the east coast in a few months to find a girl that I met there before.... I'm probably going to take a plane and because of this I will have no herb stash when I get there... because I'm going to Washington, I thought that it will be easier for me to find herb, if this really is what I think it says backwards..... I was thinking going to Washington to hang out might not be the same as it used to for somebody from out of out of town now that herb is legal... What do you think... I think the old "I said hail bong why" backwards routine would definitely eventually score me some herb with out everybody trying to rob me.... Any comments about what you hear will definitely be appreciated.... thanks ..
