Why in the world are we here?

Surely not to live in pain and fear

Why on earth are you there?
When you're everywhere
Come and get your share

With all of the senseless violence in this country because of our lax gun laws, that photo is worth a million words.

Instead of continuing with the usual "1000 Words" snarks, I'd like to mention that tomorrow will be the 50th anniversary of the release of the first Beatles album, Please Please Me in England 50 years ago. That was also on a Friday.

I saw those at the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame when they had the Lennon exhibit a few years back. What a dark day  December 8th 1980 was.

@sacredh Whatever you might think of Yoko's singing, she's a true artist.  That one picture says it all.  Just imagine how tore up she must feel just looking at them.

Thanks for the photo. Lennon and the Beatles changed our culture.

@sacredh A day or two after Lennon was killed, one of our local radio stations played his and Beatles songs almost constantly. But one time, the deejay messed up and flipped the record (they used to play singles, y'know), and played Yoko-sung B-side instead. He spent the next hour apologizing.

@roknsteve @sacredh I'm not a fan of her singing, but I do appreciate her artistry and her commitment to keeping John's legacy alive.

Also, as I understand, she is very appreciative of and good to the fans. My 15-YO really wanted to meet her when she spent last Thanksgiving with our New York family, but, alas, she didn't get to.

@sacredh My 15-YO daughter is a huge Beatles fan. She's even got some of their albums on vinyl. A couple of Christmases ago, a friend gave her some original pressings, and she was the happiest kid I knew.

@sacredh  

bro, we have cathedral ceilings - and we used to have a 15 foot lennon face, as soon as you walked in the door. 

Everyone loved it. I'm right there with ya, regarding John and the beatles.

Coo coo kachoo!

Sue_N, I hate to admit this, but I like Yoko's music. If the DJ played the flip side of Cold Turkey, I think it's a great song. Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For a Hand in the Snow). Clapton plays lead guitar on it and it's got to be the most jarring thing he's ever played.

Their music is timeless. What child hasn't sung along to "Yellow Submarine?

roknsteve, I knew that. It was such a shame he lost all of his mementos. Where did Jimi Hendrix die? In Ringo's flat in london.

@sacredh Did you know that in the 80's Ringo was living in a mansion in Los Angeles and he had a massive Beatle collection.  He went of tour and the whole place burned to the ground.

I've got it so bad that my ashes are going in a Yellow Submarine cookie jar after I'm creamted. No joke.

outsider2011, you wouldn't believe the Beatles stuff I have. I'm a collector. I've got better things packed away because there's no room to display them than some collectors would display front and center.
