I'm a spaz (surprise of the century) and accidentally posted the new playlist in a whole new post instead of just embedding the code. So I made a blog post that I can't figure out how to delete, so I figured I just might as well say something. So, why don't I do a review of a documentary Matt and I watched a little while ago?
We watched Imagine: John Lennon. It. Was. SO. Good. I have to say that Paul McCartney has always been my favorite Beatle, partly because his music is just a little more my style, but I gained SO MUCH respect for John Lennon throughout this movie. I also had a fairly stereotypical view of Yoko Ono before I watched this (Yoko was partially responsible for breaking up the Beatles and was selfish and demanded John's attention all the time, etc.) and boy was I wrong! I know it's probably a fairly biased film, but they were SO CUTE together. And he was just such a normal guy, it was so funny/sad to see how some people got obsessed with him to the point of showing up outside his house, thinking that he'd written a song for/about them, and shooting him. So here's some things that struck me about the film.
Holy cow, the Beatles were REALLY FAMOUS!!!!
Fame sucks sometimes.
Famous people are mostly normal too (unless there name is Kanye, or Henifer Lopez).
Matt looks like a young John Lennon.
Trying to use your fame for good (bed protests) brings out the people who try to say that anyone famous is doing it for the money.
Give peace a chance.
Yoko and John were really cute together.
It really really really really really really really really really sucks that he died when he did.
