All this talk about how she led him on…but what if she WANTED sex and John couldn’t perform? And she laughs at him, and he crawls away humiliated?

A few days ago , when looking for some info about their acid party in L.A. , i came across this:

Joan Baez: There weren’t enough bedrooms for everybody, so John told me I could stay in his room. So I went to sleep and he came in during the middle of the night, and I think he felt compelled, and he started coming on to me, very unenthusiastically […] I said, “John, you know, I’m probably as tired as you are, and I don’t want you to feel you have to perform on my behalf…”

And he said, “Oh, luvly! I mean, what a relief! Because you see, well, you might say I’ve already been fooked downstairs….”

So we had a good laugh and went to sleep.

Randomly came across this individual’s analysis of ’Norwegian Wood ’ and it’s pretty funny. Please note there are some naughty words that may cause some offence – so if you get easily irked or don’t like rude humour, please don’t read.

I recently read Murakami’s ‘Norwegian Wood ‘, widely considered to be his best novel. It’s set in Tokyo in the late 60s, and it features a lot of Beatley music and references, but best of all is the title since this song is the favourite of one of the characters. 

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”
