You were the way to the truth when you said 'All You Need Is Love'

25 years ago today.

I don't have much to say except that between cramming for and taking my midterm (on the last day of classes??) today, I will be listening to the words and music of Mr. John Lennon.

We all shine on


  • check out the documentary "I killed John Lennon"

    fucking bastard! killed for no reason

    PS. Jim, do you ever wonder how many comments you miss because people don't want to type out the picture code?

  • There was a reason John Lennon was murdered... because he decided he wanted to be available to his fans. John Lennon always put himself out there for the whole world to see. (take for example "Two Virgins" for a literal example, or "Plastic Ono Band" for a better example) If you want to see something truly eerie, check out the "Imagine: John Lennon" motion picture from 1988 (not the film soundtrack for the album)... There's a scene where John finds a transient who came to his property in England who wanted to talk to John. John takes him in his house, feeds him, and talks to the messed up guy. (who believed that John was personally talking to him through the lyrics to "Dig A Pony") It's very eerie in how it foretells John's literal downfall in a way, but it's also a testament to the man's humanity.
    As for the comment/picture issues... I know I miss out on quite a few comments... from automated spambots. I was getting quite a few until I put that in there, and I have no none since. Obviously, I prefer to keep things as easy as possible for those brave few who bother to read this blog, but I'd rather they have content to read as opposed to spam.
