Given all the corruption and cruelty I’ve seen over the past few days I gotta *imagine* there’s a better ahead, somewhere and focus on what there is to be grateful for. That’s actually what @axelrecords and I chatted about for a bit today and how our countries have some political similarities. Then I end up quoting “Imagine” 🤓🤣- so I asked him if using ‘Shaved Fish’ would count with my “Imagine” t-shirt (even tho it’s a best of) for @record_lady’s #vinyltshirttuesday and he agreed so here I am. 💁🏻♀️ ...Need more Lennon on vinyl, need more Beatles too... Ah, let’s be real, we all need more vinyl 🤣😂 . . I loooooved Lennon as a kid. I mean, I loved the Beatles (prior to learning the solo careers) but tended to gravitate to the songs Lennon wrote. I knew him as a tormented but peace loving, brilliant musician. Later I learned that wasn’t all he was. Bugged me a bit, but the music.... the era... Not totally surprising. John Lennon had a real dark side. He said: "All that 'I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved' was me. I used to be cruel to my woman, and physically - any woman. I was a hitter. I couldn't express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women.” .... “That is why I am always on about peace, you see.

Lennon also mocked disabled people and beat up a man for joking about him being queer... We can chalk it up to different times. But I do see a man who was bringing the dark to light... People don’t change overnight after all... And thinking of this, where I find myself these days, is none of us are perfect, but now is the time to step up and be
As I'm processing and exporting at least 500 photos from Lightroom this afternoon, here's my autographed vinyl of Heart's "Bad Animals" from 1987 I got signed by Ann and Nancy Wilson in person six years ago. Yes, this post is not photography related, but if you know and listen to classic rock music and how much that the Wilson sisters made an influence in that genre, this is a big deal. Unfortunately the record doesn't play well because the entire album keeps skipping tracks a lot. Totally an honor and a privilege to meet them.
