Skip to comments.Yoko Ono: A Reconsideration - How I Learned To Love Yoko
Posted on 10/23/2012 9:24:42 AM PDT by a fool in paradise
Yoko Ono is not pretty, she is not easy, her paintings arent recognizable, her voice is not melodious, her films are without plot and her Happenings make no sense... Most of her stuff is not even there. This is why I love her. This is why we need her. We have too much stuff already. It clutters our view, inward and outward.
We need more impossible in our culture.... We already have a billion lovely things and a million amazing artists who have honed their talent and have lorded it above us. People who have achieved the highest of the possible...
Even other artists cant figure out Ono or accept her as legit, nor can she obey the club rules. Her stuff is all wrong....
There are two schools of art. One is what is made beautiful by the artist; the other is to make way for the viewer to see or feel what is already beautiful....
So . . . if I love her so much, why does this little old lady still make me so uncomfortable?
...Even now, at the most acceptable point her career or private life has ever reached in our moralistic and artistically anorexic society, who is embracing her? Courtney Love and Lady Gaga. And those women seem nuts. Theyre extreme. We all love to watch what they do next, but who really likes them? And while they catfight then make up and champion or co-opt other famous ladies, I never get the feeling they like anyone either...
...That is the ultimate feminism: Yoko Ono doesnt need us to like her. She doesnt care.
Then sometimes I think she does care.
Oh, Yoko, you trouble me so.

For your consideration.
Yoko is an irrelevant Joko
Barf. Typical Upper West Side navel-gazing.
EL OH EL!
Yes, everybody needs a bit of ugly chaos.
Otherwise, how could we appreciate beauty and order?
Saying that Yoko’s voice is not melodious is like saying sandpaper is not soft toilet paper.
Her CD’s are excellent.....
for chasing mating cats off your porch.
“...That is the ultimate feminism: Yoko Ono doesnt need us to like her. She doesnt care. “
Of course she doesn’t! If I had my hooks on ALL of John Lennon’s Beatle money, I wouldn’t need much either!
As far as: “this is the ultimate feminism...” - Again, had she been unable to become John’s parasite, NOBODY would’ve ever heard of her or care. All of HER ‘art’ or whatever has been pretty much crap. But, put BEATLE money behind it and voila! - you’ll get plenty of fame and attention.
She just needs Hillary's personal tutelage about riding someone else’s coattail.
For the same reasons, I love to eat dirt instead of gourmet food.
Don’t click on the link if you have dogs nearby. They’ll start howling. Biggest bunch of pretentious horse manure I’ve ever seen.
Nice costume. Rental?
Don’t spill any punch on it or you’ll have to buy it.
As my long-departed yiddische grandma used to ask: "And from dis she makes a livink?"
Hehehe! Wise woman. :-)
