Dec. 8, 1980: "Hard Times Are Over"

A day after the anniversary of D-Day, John Lennon was shot by a man who now lives with his father next to a very rich golf course, with a bracelet on his ankle. By the quirks of chance and underground politics, some people have all the luck. How does it feel to be?

I used to post on this day a lot more intensely, which you might partly find via my LJ tag. Here is a JL song I never heard before. Yoko Ono took it from a JL demo, including a metronome, and produced it up just a little. I would add this song to, "Free As A Bird," and, "Real Love," as posthumous gems...

Grow Old With Me

Grow Old With Me - (Postal Service)

Hard Times Are Over - Yoko Ono, 1974

I Just Shot John Lennon - The Cranberries

I find it interesting and curious that Lennon was finally killed just as the Reagan machine was moving in. There are virtually no accidents in politics. This applies to the age of Trump today...

Lennon and others, like Pink Floyd, were greatly an uprising against the great wars that had happened to their parents and grandparents, as empire faltered. With most of the protestors killed off or neutralised by 1980, the stage was set for the great narcissistic flowering of the baby boomers, from about 1983-1993, which was based largely on debt and lying and big hair. Remember this. The great flowering of the millenials should be coming about 2020-2030. More to say on these things soon...

The guy who shot John Lennon is out of jail?
I had no idea.
Have you seen the film 'Nowhere boy' ?
That film helped me understand Lennon more than anything.

In the middle of a winegrain, I can only say probably. As so often happens w/ my CFS: I might have to go recheck that one, cuz maybe I am confusing him w/ the guy who shot Reagan, etc. But one of them is living as I said. So, I must check on that... I'm pretty sure it was him, but I can never trust myself anymore...

I have not seen that movie but I will order it from the library ASAP. Sounds great. I did a paper on the Beatles' formative years, and read all about Lennon and his mother, etc. I do find that to be a very interesting subject! Thanks.

OK - thanks for calling me out on that! Mark D. Chapman does indeed remain in prison, here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wende_Correctional_Facility

Nevertheless, I maintain healthy suspicons as to a possible hidden design to the murder. On the other hand, sometimes 'accidents' happen which are more-than-coincidentally fortuitous to dark trends or forces. So, idk.

It was actually John Hinkley I was thinking of. He shot Reagan, and is now living in his mother's home which is on the edge of a lush golf course: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hinckley_Jr.#Treatment

There are "valid rumours" that Reagan was put in his place by the Bush CIA, especially over certain policies proposed by Reagan, probably to do with banks, and/or "Star Wars" weapons development.
