Remembering John Lennon: Dead 27 Years

John Lennon was killed on this day in 1980 by some fucking asshole with a gun.
Chapman called out, "Mr. Lennon!" As Lennon turned around, Chapman dropped into a "combat stance" and shot at Lennon five times with hollow point bullets from a Charter Arms .38 revolver. One shot missed, passing over Lennon's head and hitting a window of the Dakota building. Two shots struck Lennon in the left side of his back and two more in his left shoulder. All four wounds caused serious internal damage, and at least one of them fatally pierced Lennon's aorta.

Rest in Peace, John. Or come on back, soon. You probably already have and we just don't fucking know it. We're not too smart down here on this planet. We need some help. And if you are black next time around, all the better. And female, go for it.

You gotta fall on your knees before you fall in the wrong direction.

--Ruthie Foster

Is Nietzsche dead as well?

Let's take a moment of silence to deep breathe, and rejoice. For the 2nd coming.
