Containing Multitudes Since 2004
John and Yoko farming beef, raising protein quota.Sometimes they make love and art inside the Dakota.Has it really been 19 years?
No. It's actually been 29 years.
Hard to believe. In 2010 it will have been thirty years since that fateful day. I still remember it vividly and can't get my mind around the fact that it's been thirty years.
I remember bursting into tears when I heard it on the radio and then going to work in a black leather skirt that day.
I remember listening to interviews with him on the radio all day.
The most fascination moment of the documentary Imagine is the scene where Al Capp visits the honeymoon couple during the Bed-In for Peace. And at the beginning Capp is giving a pretty good account of his side of the generation gap, but as he realizes that in Lennon he is dealing with an ego as great as his own that will not give an inch, Capp completely loses his composure, ending up calling Yoko "THAT THING!" Speaking, understand, of a woman who is sitting right there. You have never seen a man revealing the ugliness inside himself like that.
Here's a link to a link to a clip from Imagine showing Al Capp meeting John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
"That Thing" looks astonishly hot for 70-ish! Very few under a certain age have any idea who Al Capp was, but his sputtering tirade will define his memory.
Or did Capp reveal the ugliness that was there? Imagine: Maureen in a black leather skirt... THAT'S entertainment!
I'm going to go with the part where he brings that hippie who had been lurking in his garden into his house and serves him lunch as the most fascinating moment in Imagine but the Capp thing is probably a close second or third.
