  • Clinton asks supporters to ‘imagine’ America if Trump wins

    DETROIT — “Imagine Jan. 20, 2017,” Hillary Clinton asked a couple of thousand supporters on Friday afternoon. “And imagine that my opponent is taking the oath of office in front of the Capitol.” Her fans booed. “Imagine having a president who demeans women and mocks the disabled, who insults African-Americans and Latinos and Muslims, who personally engages in busting unions and preventing people from having the right to bargain collectively,” she continued as her supporters booed more. As Clinton’s lead has shrunk just a few days before Election Day, she has started describing a potential Donald Trump presidency in more...
  • Is John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ the Worst Song of All Time?

    Played at weddings, funerals, Olympic ceremonies and even the annual New Year’s Eve celebrations in Times Square, John Lennon’s song “Imagine” has been the all-purpose anthem of sentimentality for 45 years. But if you’re one of those people who secretly hates it, don’t worry — you’re not the only one. Last weekend, British music fan Edward Carter and some friends were casually discussing songs they hated when he decided to extend the conversation to social media.

    That's the title of a new book by Fred Jerome, a compilation of essays from these and other noteworthies: This anthology features essays by revolutionary thinkers, activists, and artists-including Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore, civil rights activist Angela Davis, incarcerated journalist Mumia Abu Jamal, and economist Rick Wolff- addressing various aspects of a new society and, crucially, how to get from where we are now to where we want to be, living in a society that is truly fair and just. I suppose that's one way to describe their vision. I might ask the question, "fair and just for whom"?...

    A dentist wants to clone John Lennon from his rotten tooth All you need is DNA. A Canadian dentist says he's working with "American scientists" to clone John Lennon from a rotten molar the Beatles singer had extracted in the 1960s. According to the press release (warning: it autoplays a weird parody song, "Love Me Tooth") dentist Michael Zuk bought the tooth at auction for $31,000 and now is working with an unspecified lab to see if they can clone him. Says Zuk: I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John...

    As we approach the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon’s death, I think it’s time to take a hard look at the song that — sadly and improperly — personifies Lennon’s legacy for far too many people. That song is “Imagine.” Why this weak entry in Lennon’s dazzling oeuvre receives such adoration mystifies me. The song features a syrupy melody, a cloying piano line, none of the startling chord or time changes that distinguished Lennon’s great Beatles songs, and no memorable hook. Lyrically it’s even worse. There are lines in this song that a young John Lennon would have savaged. “No...

    Let’s take John Lennon up on his offer. Let’s imagine what the world would be like with no countries, religions or a heaven or hell. Let’s imagine a world with no possessions and nothing important enough to be willing to kill to protect it or die to ensure its continuing. Let’s imagine Lennon’s world where all the people are living for nothing other than today. In this world, people will have saved no money for their retirement. After all, retirement is somewhere down the line. All the people would have massive debts – borrowed every penny from everywhere they could,...

    The Guardian ^ | 01/08/2012 | Paul Handley
    Something big, round and heavy fell with a clang in Times Square on New Year's Eve, and it wasn't the ball on the flagpole. Cee Lo Green sang a version of Imagine in which he changed John Lennon's lyric "and no religion, too" to "and all religion is true". Outraged Lennon fans didn't need to use 132 of their Twitter characters to tell Cee Lo what they thought of him. On the other hand, perhaps they were just reminding him of his most infamous song title. Among the New Year's Day tweets, I imagine there were one or two that...

    A survivor of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre in China appealed to President Barack Obama during a press conference on Tuesday to push Chinese President Hu Jintao to end the practice of forcing women to have an abortion as part of China's one-child-per-couple policy. “President Obama, we’re speaking to you as the president of this great nation, we also speak to you as a great father for your two beautiful children,” said Chai Ling, who came to the United States in 1990 and founded All Girls Allowed, a Christian organization that helps Chinese victims of forced abortions and sterilization in...

    It's a landmark event for Beatledom. John Lennon, dead these thirty years, would have turned seventy years old today.For many '60s survivors who grew up in thrall of the Fab Four, the idea that such an important symbol of the youth culture has arrived at the threshold of old age (if such a category still exists in our teen-obsessed culture) must be profoundly unsettling.It is as if that entire generation had finally found itself washed up on the very doorstep of senility.There can be no doubt that Lennon, in his partnership with the brilliant tunesmith Paul McCartney, did craft some of...

    John Lennon's killer will continue watching the wheels go round from behind bars after being denied parole Tuesday for a sixth time. Mark David Chapman met with a three-member Parole Board panel at the Attica Correctional Facility via video conference. Chapman was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison after he was convicted of shooting the ex-Beatle four times outside his apartment on Dec. 8, 1980. He has served nearly 30 years of his sentence. Chapman is next eligible to try for parole in two years. He was first eligible for parole in 2000. Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, had...

    For the i-Pod-less, there are many playlists that are created by users, but the "Essentials" lists are made by Apple. It says it was posted April 28, but sounds like it was posted January 20. See the goopy Obama-loving text that came with the songs: Welcome to the beginning of a new era in the U.S. – Barack Obama's history-making win is really a victory for all those who keep the faith and firmly believe that people have the power to make a change. John Lennon was one of rock ‘n' roll's most determined dreamers, and the better world he...

    Imagine there’s no religion, it’s easy for The New York Times to do — even in a Christmas Day editorial that somehow forgets that Christmas is about Christ’s birth. In fact, the NYT decided that this Christmas was its opportunity to wallow in worse-than-ever sentiments and to bemoan that this year’s Christmas isn’t as good as it used to be. Oh, they tried to dress it up a bit by saying it is great to have a Christmas that gets us back to basics and also by slipping in some global warming clap trap, but it is still a...

    December 8th was the anniversary of the death of Beatle John Lenon. Most of the world mourned the death of this man for his music but most of all for his views or I should say imagination. Well if we understood more about who he was and what he imagined, we would be celebrating rather mourning. Why? John's views were hostile towards the American ideals of individualism freedom and liberty and supportive of worldwide despotic communism at the hands of the New World order. His song Imagine was nothing more than a call for the destruction of America and religion...
