Blame Gerry...

Gerry in IL sent this to me. It is so horrific that, naturally, I had to share it with you all...



Now, allegedly this is "art." Much like Ed Meese and his infamous definition for porn, I can't tell you what art is, but I'll know it when I'll see it. Some wrinkled prune shrieking at a microphone for several lifetimes (hey, that's what it felt like) ain't art no matter how many bands she broke up.

I honestly have no idea how Yoko Ono ever got considered as an "artist" or "musician," I really do. I can only surmise that it had to do with being the late 1960s and early 1970s and copious amounts of mind-altering substances rotted John Lennon's brain to the point where he confused her screeching with something resembling music. Once she got her hooks into Lennon, her place in pop culture was secured.

And we're left with seventeen hours of her shrieking into a microphone as "art" as a "thank you"...

That is all.

You could have been like the guy who throws himself on a grenade and spared the rest of us. But no, you had to go and toss it into the midst of us. Shame on you.

She's just a washed up baby boomer trying to relive her glory days of contributing (for lack of a better word) to the White Album.

Anyway, Changing Subjects. Let's do Peddler's Friday Night. Less than 3 miles from your Hotel down 101A, open until 10pm for Dinner.

And KC's on Saturday.

Now we need a Time and Reservations placed, oh N.E. Blogshoot Co-ordinator, then it's just "Bob's Your Uncle." ; )

Just as Ulysses did, I tied my self to the mast and listened to the siren's song.

My brain still aches.

Mark David Chapman could've been a friggin' hero, if only he were a better shot..

"She's just a washed up baby boomer..."

Er, no. She was born in 1933, well before the boomer generation. We boomers are guilty of a lot of things, but that ain't one of them.

Dear God!

If that's what John Lennon had to put up with when she climaxed, I wonder if his assassination might have been something of a mercy!

Like an idiot I couldn't resist clicking on the link. Now I will pay the price of a fried brain for the rest of the day.

WTF *was* that?? I know singing when I hear it and that certainly wasn't song of *any* type.

Once a dumb ass, always a dumb ass. She had an act like that (screaming higher pitched) must have been 35 or 40 years ago.

He actually wised up and left her for another girl for a little while, but then relapsed.

Good Lord, what an unwholesome racket.
