hippie_chick: (John  / All you need is love!)


Thinking about John today. That day is still so fresh, so vivid, even all these years later. But I choose not to dwell on his murder this day. Rather, I choose to think about his life, his message.

There's a song that goes "let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me." John and Yoko always said that we CAN achieve peace if we want it. And I still believe that. Let peace begin with each and every one of us. And what a better time to start than the Holiday Season. Be kind. Give love.

John Lennon's Killer Denied Parole For 7th Time.

Instant Karma! if he ever gets out, someone's gonna kill him without a doubt. In fact, why protective custody? Just put him in the general population and let 'em have at it.

There's room at the top they're telling you still.
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
if you want to be like the folks on the hill...

We're playing those mind games together,
Pushing barriers, planting seeds,
Playing the mind guerilla,
Chanting the Mantra peace on earth,
We all been playing mind games forever,
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil.
Doing the mind guerilla,
Some call it the search for the grail,
Love is the answer and you know that for sure,
Love is flower you got to let it, you got to let it grow,
So keep on playing those mind games together,
Faith in the future outta the now,
You just can't beat on those mind guerillas,
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind,
Yeah we're playing those mind games forever,
Projecting our images in space and in time,
Yes is the answer and you know that for sure,
Yes is the surrender you got to let it, you got to let it go,
So keep on playing those mind games together,
Doing the ritual dance in the sun,
Millions of mind guerrillas,
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel,
Keep on playing those mind games forever,
Raising the spirit of peace and love, not war,
(I want you to make love, not war, I know you've heard it before)

It's been 27 years. His message, his legacy, lives on.

Chapter 27

As we all know, filming is progressing on the indie film Chapter 27 starring Jared Leto as Mark David Chapman, the man who assasinated John Lennon on December 8, 1980. The film title alludes to the famed "missing chapter" of the J.D. Salinger novel Catcher In The Rye. Lindsay Lohan costars as a teen Lennon fan (a fictitious character in an otherwise 'based on a true story' type of film) who befriends Chapman on the weekend of the murder. Here's something I found on Yoko and the production:


"JOHN LENNON's widow YOKO ONO is being forced to watch the reenaction of her husband's murder on the doorstep of her New York City home, after failing to ban producers from filming new movie CHAPTER 27 at the location.

The Japanese singer/artist was horrified when Canadian company Peace Arch applied to film the movie, starring JARED LETO as Lennon's killer MARK DAVID CHAPMAN, outside the Dakota Building, where the rock legend was fatally shot in December 1980.

Her publicist KIP KOURI tells the New York Post, "Yoko immediately checked if the Dakota building had the right to refuse them filming the facade, and found out that legally, all they had to do was to get the permission of the city.
"

I can't say as I really blame Yoko. At all.

A couple of photos gleaned from elsewhere on the net just to show Jared Leto's transformation. He is an actor that always impresses me... his screen presence is amazing.

Leto in character, holding copies of Double Fantasy and Catcher In The Rye. Also, on location, with Lindsay Lohan.

Artistic freedom is what it's all about, and one shouldn't censor or silence. But there's also a part of me that is yes, bothered. John Lennon meant alot to me, and I really wouldn't feel comfortable watching a "dramatization" of events that unfolded on December 8 1980 and that to this day still shake me to the core. As the film makers have their freedom to progress with this project, we have the freedom to choose to see or not to see this film when released to theaters.

It's been 25 years now since the awful night when five shots rang out at the Dakota in New York City brutally taking from us one of our greatest music legends. Can it have been so long ago? It still feels so fresh.

Peace isn't just a dream. We can have it. That, along with a brilliant body of musical work, is John's legacy. And that legacy remains forever.

There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more


We miss you, John. We all shine on.
