An Example of How Damn Fast Time Goes By

A psychotic asshole shot John Lennon 30 years ago today. I'm still depressed about it.

God bless you, wherever you are, Mr. Lennon.

Me too, it seems like yesterday that I was getting ready to go to school and heard the news on the radio.

Thank-you, love.

I make it a rule to never say or write the name of these murderers, they should be forgotten and only be referred to as "psychotic assholes."
John Lennon and his music will always be remembered.

loved John and his message too, but couldn't help putting my own twisted spin on things when i saw today that two places under 'John Lennon Quotes' on most googled phrases is one 'Mark Chapman'. which is proof, if proof be needed, that if you go and blow a celebrity's head off you'll become nearly as famous as they are.

anyone then for open season on Sarah Palin. I'd like to become famous for blowing her alabaster head off like she does those poor mooses!

RIP John

His song, "Imagine" is the best pop song ever. My tribute to him... http://ow.ly/2R72d

DTG,
YES! Love you.

Dash,
Me too, babe. Me too.

Ms. Moon,
I knew you would be thinking of him today, too.

David McG,
You are so right, my brother. I agree totally.

Danny,
That's sickening, but it doesn't shock me. I hear you about Palin. She's awful.

Denny,
Thank you. I will check it out when I come up for air here at work. Love to you and Kathleen.

I was 6 when he died, but I can't dent his influence on music from the Beatles and continuing to this day-I listen to his music as much as any other artist in my hard drive.

My where does all the time go. I remember feeling numb when I heard. One of the few celebrity deaths that really mattered to me.

Syd said...

He was the Beatle for me. Just downloaded some of his tunes. Good stuff. Hard to believe that it has been 30 years--seems like yesterday.

I know what you mean, just a waste of a beautiful life.. I heard his son Julian on the radio he sounds just like him x

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Mr. M.,
I was in high school. Very sad day.

Big Mark,
Me too.

Syd,
I was listening to him today at lunch, too.

North West London Girl,
I've missed you! Glad you are back. Julian looks like him, too.

Love to all,

SB

Nice post for John. I remember the day also, in high school, just thinking...How can that be? And thank you too for not mentioning that prick-loser's name who shot him.

Peace...

Jenn,
It was my pleasure not to name the asshole.

Love you tons!
