As always when randomly picking up a book I checked for the individual Beatles and there were a handful of John Lennon quotes. All were well known except this great line in regards to Yoko

 "It's just handy to fuck your best friend."

I wonder how that sits with the McLennon believers. a-hard-days-night-john-6

The full quote can be found here and is below.

Could make it worse since Paul wasn't his best friend.

Yesterday i was listening to an audio of their Candlestick last concert and i just laughed so hard to John's introduction to "Nowhere Man " ... how crazy he was, and how i love his sense of humour...

Not sure where else to put this, but for Christmas I got the John Lennon Legend DVD.  I enjoyed it, haven't watched the extras yet. It does merit the criticism against it that it was "Yoko-ized." She definitely did some revising to suit her needs. I'm glad I have my bootleg of the original John Lennon Video Collection.

I have that DVD too, but I haven't watched it in a long time  (Admittedly, I don't know where it is right now). How so do you mean when you say "Yoko-ized?"

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

For instance when it shows her saying "John" in # 9 Dream when it is May that said it. Stand By Me also includes lots of footage of Yoko even though it is a Lost Weekend track. There are other instances but those stand out in my mind. She made entirely new videos for a lot of the songs that already had videos.

I remember watching the 'Legend' DVD when it came out and being so disappointed that so many videos were newly created instead of being the originals. The video collection is so much better. The new '(Just Like) Starting Over' was very similar to 'Free As A Bird ' and even some of 'Real Love '; the glasses falling and smashing is a strong reminder of what happened to John.

It wasn't a surprise that a lot of the footage came with extra Yoko.

@O Boogie said on 23 July of last year 
As I was saying, he had amazing skin 😀 

I'm listening to John Lennon on KHJ-AM, and he's giving us a skin-care lotion advert now in which he says: 

This all-in-one lotion works wonders on all types of skin, even if you're one of the fortunate few with a faultless skin-- and I am. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Its a great listen isn't it @Beatlebug? Hearing John do all the adverts differently in daft voices and talking to callers is a true delight. Another talent the man had was being a DJ. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Sorry about making this a long post with all the pictures, but I didn't want to split it up into 2 or 3 posts and make it seem like I'm spamming the thread (even though Expert Textpert did about 4 or 5 posts like this back on page 3).

Even though John is my third favorite Beatle and sometimes even my fourth favorite Beatle but actually maybe he just is my fourth favorite Beatle, I think he was a pretty cool dude.

I find giving another being as a gift is very disrespectful to that life. Nobody owns other living beings. It is only a great superiority complex that would lead someone to believe they own another life. paul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

Don't think of Paul gift-wrapped, though. Paul is a member of PETA and PETA is anti-pets.
