Its not an event i think about or even want to think about. After all these years its still to hard a concept to understand and would rather remember his birth. Currently reading a book that details the beatles working career day by day after the spilt, ive ground to a halt after the Double Fantasy sessions because i know whats going to happen. Far too depressing and heartbreaking to read how active and upbeat and happy John was in late 1980.

Sorry.

God just think about him dying just breaks my heart. I wish I was in Central Park right now paying my respect. Despite all his flaws, John you were truly one of a kind. No one will ever forget you. We love you and miss you heart

 

Peace and Love.

I remember in September of 1980 reading a newspaper article on John's comeback after a five year break. My friends and I were estatic.   For those who were around to be woken up and told of John's murder 31 years ago like myself, The shock is long gone but the manner in which he was taken from us at such a relatively young age during the height of his creative peak just  returning to make music again will never make sense.   I had purchased the single "Starting Over" which I couldn't listen to for months in the aftermath.  Days before purchased  "Double Fantasy"  I listened to John's songs write away and thought "Woman" was beautiful resembling a Beatles song immensely but was most captivated by "Watching The Wheels".    Many of us were so depressed and confused, Some skipped school and Tuesday was appropriately a heavy rainy day.  The death of John Lennon left a very big void in this world. No other musical artist was as articulate in expressing themselves.   His spirit lives on and while this is a sad day, The best way to try and cope with it is to play his records and always remember how upbeat and postive he was about the future.  All you still need is PEACE and LOVE.  hearta-hard-days-night-john-5

Noooooo! I forgot it was today. I always think that it's the 9th because anytime I dont know somthing about John I just assume its somthing to do with 9 (and I'm 99% right in doing so) OMG! This is totally random but right now I'm listening to "The End" on record and it started skipping on the word "love". Mabey it's a sign. Or Johns spirit messing with me :^) <---- imagine that's a John smiley because my iPod dosent let me put them on my posts.

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

I feel absolutely terrible not being online yesterday, but I had no acess to a computer and I had Tommy rehersals.

 

But anyway, I listened to Love and Imagine yesterday, and I just broke down crying.

Thank you John for absolutely everything, you truly, truly, will be missed.

Peace and love

OK, so John's birthday is coming up next week. Since it is on a Tuesday, I am choosing to honor him this weekend. I usually pour the libation(s) of choice into my John Lennon pint glass, face northeast (toward Liverpool) and toast the man. Then, I will spend the evening listening to the Lennon Box Set.

Post your rembrances here along with anything you might do to commemorate his birthday.
