Nothing is real.... John Lennon
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
Kerching! Kerching! There goes another million into Simon Cowell's bank acount as yet another carefully selected middle of the road performing dickweed tops the charts. Whoops this post was supposed to be a tribute to John Lennon. After all it's December 8th and I still remember that cold December 8th in 1980 when we first heard Lennon had been shot dead - and it's turned into yet another rant against that shite we called the X Factor. Though maybe it is appropriate you know because a question people are always asking is what was the difference between Paul McCartney and John Lennon - Well Macca appeared on the X Factor while Lennon would never have done that...surely not!
I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people.
My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
John Lennon we still miss you.
