^Funny you should say that, I was just appreciating Yoko last night and drawing her with a windy smile and seashell eyes, her hair of floating sky shimmering. etc. a-hard-days-night-john-6

(the irony is that I was appreciating the wrong Beatle-missus for the occasion, it's Pattie's birthday paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif oops yoko-ono_01pattie-boyd_02_gif)

Edit: ARGH the FIDDY

Yoko Ono looks good in a tie.

Also in a fedora.

Edit: Upon closer inspection it appears that she is not wearing a fedora in the photo. Whatever. She still looks good in one john-lennon-salute_gif

Yes of course. It's like saying George looks good in a tie; obviously he looks good in anything but he looks extra good in a tie. Same deal with Yoko. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Actually, I think Yoko looks better in a tie than George does. George looks positively uncomfortable in a tie, whereas Yoko owns it; Hari's more suited to fruity '70s vests and long-collared shirts, in my opinion. ahdn_george_06

What he's suited to is a turtleneck.

I think the best thing we can do as Yoko fans is to try and dispel this notion that she brainwashed John. She SAVED John! John, for all his faults, was even worse of a person before Yoko came. She gave him the balance he needed and made him a less angry person. It saddens me that people don't see that.

John and Yoko were perfect together-- at least, as close to perfect as two people can be.

What kills me is people give Linda a free pass when she does the EXACT SAME THING!

 

- She doesn't "Sing" as well as Paul

- She's always around Paul in interviews

- She gives her input on his music

- She can be preachy about what matters to her (Vegetarianism etc)

 

But because she's not "Different" it's, "Oh look how cute they are together!" - Not for Yoko though. To them she's just a cancer. It's sick.

Yoko was more independent, esoteric, and difficult for most people to understand than Linda. Anyway, Linda had her share of bashers too, but there was a bit of a martyr effect when she died.

Right. Linda was your more straightforward person. Yoko on the other hand was "Radical" and thus people had to make her out to be some kind of menace. Especially since she "Messed" with a Beatle. How DARE she! John was THEIRS, don't ya know? a-hard-days-night-john-3

Then we all would do well to fight back against her negative association in videos on youtube and her portrayal in media. It needs to stop.
