"Bet. It's been a minute. I'm sort of getting back into doing this thing regularly. So i missed some of the conversation but the last end of it is i. I mean i like your leading on appreciate it. But i have to disagree with you. I think that is the art of of people. A banner is talking to everybody right. So you're gonna get you gotta talk to your eight years saying yard super religious people and similar religious people in men and women older people younger people but you also have to have up. A sense of when talked to some people is wasted time. You know what. I mean doesn't mean you reach out to everybody but you you. I mean you're you're you are unlimited resource so if you reach out to everybody get nothing drama. You're going to go home and be stressed in like message. Woman that you're going to bring up relationship with the and did you have even doing this. But if there's a way to do it i used to tell tickets like dr original black panthers had a better system than before they got famous right in saudi. Doing this stuff. They were about the work they said. Mean a lot of kids in brooklyn back in the early seventies right before it became about walking around on tv with guns in black leather jackets. Someone should have been like. We wanna keep this tight. We don't judge me called you what number we don't want everybody and bringing in everybody brought in like nah not yet. Your tom here is done. And it didn't do that so like just because there's a a forget who said it. But i think actually i think john lennon senate just because this. The civil rights thing didn't work out the way you doesn't mean you give up you go okay. This way didn't work. And you re w efforts and you start again. He was talking about he was. He wasn't talking about civil rights. I think we're talking about the hippies about tc lavin and i'm just like with drugs where he was like even the oil that drug stuff to do doesn't mean the coffee was in good. If you have to redouble your efforts to make the corp stronger and not make mistakes that you made originally and i feel this way with the civil rights movement. i think i'm like a echoing. I feel myself as like a civil rights. Policemen right civil rights cop. A lot of civil rights preachers. I'm saying i'm telling you something totally different than what they're telling you right right unique cops while you're at work you need someone to look after your women with children the property right but at the same time you know what idiots an al told in in bums and racist doing that should be the that should be what you're you're handy to versus all this us against us against them shit. Because i told me the same argument to racist about at the end of the day racism. You want to be a doctor so maybe we can get together on what the fuck is wrong with the education system right back and leave all the other stuff that we are not going to get along with behind right like the statues and the fucking cops. I'll fight that other allies over here should be protected. So i'm pretty sure so like you know but this is this is what people kinda go. I got no allies anywhere or alex. ally who comes through and i am not about like algebra while you're here just hit appreciation in all..
Fresh update on "john lennon" discussed on GardenLine with Randy Lemmon
"Was Randy Linen, Ellie and an O in And the linen. John Lennon. Randy Linen it maybe I'm related. Who knows? Uh, all right. Disadvantages of dyed mulch. Just real quick. So, you know, all right, I get I get into these spirited debates with certain landscapers from time to time and more times than not, I think I can sway them. All right. First of all, if you do dyed mulch on purpose, because you want the business over and over because died, Mult fades faster than anything else. The black mulch, especially Looks like cigarette ashes after awhile. That's one reason not to do it. Most of the most very has shaded yards and black mulch doesn't make your plants or house pop and make sure yard look that much darker. Right. Nine. Non dyed mulch is actually cheaper, Not a lot cheaper, but you could still save a little bit of money. Right, Um You're helping this. You're ruining the soil with dyed mulch. As it leaches the dye into the soil. It is ruining the soil. Slowly but surely it's making self swell, unhealthy, and then you're going to start seeing the plants having a negative effect when you see dyed mulch is also made out of mostly chipped. Pallets. Hardwood materials will as the nitrogen fixation goes on. It's trying to rob all the nitrogen in the area to break itself down, and then you go plant something in there and you have tons of yellowing leaves. So keep those kind of things in mind. There's a lot more Debate points against the use of died. Molds and their everyone would before the only force. Why did I get dark? I like that Black will then use compost. I like it dark well, then used the approved mulches like we've just talked about with black velvet black diamond. Anything that's a combination of motions will keep its color longer. I live in a community that demands dark mulch they didn't say died. The dark and by the way, shame on that community for making that kind of statement. I got banned from a senior community out in Richmond because I told him to stop using dyed mulch. So the manager of that community I told the person that hired me to do this speaking engagement will never have him back where that is a badge of honor. Let's go next Tol Barbara Elwood away, Barbara. Yeah, she sent in pictures of the baby. Yeah, there. Their type of beetle. I don't know that they're Japanese beetle, but they're definitely a type of maybe it'll or June Beetle. Still stay with the bison threatened Yeah. No, I'm gonna stay with I was basing it on the what You described it, Not what you may have named it or what? I may have named it so the 1000% into those pictures that makes sense now. Okay. Good deal. I just wanna check. Thank you. All right, thanks. Next up is a Scot in Sugar land. Scott. Good morning. You're on the air. Good morning. Randi. Question I've got is worth regard to, uh, Red oak tree that my son has Richmond and they sent a couple of pictures is hopefully you Oh, because our emails tied to our web. We're down right now. I can't look at any pictures. Okay, well, but we're working on getting that back up. Well, he's got, uh peculiar grows it It almost looks like Uh, like the tree is that nothing but suckers coming up from from eat, Eat to the Each of the limbs. Uh, All the way all the way up into the top of the tree with no new growth. I at the It's the extremely If if you understand that, and the Yeah, I said it close, you know, so plants in a close up of One of the branches or the or the bark almost looks blistered underneath it. I'm sure that some A lot of this is due to the priest that we had back in February. Have to remind you again. Don't have that access right now. So if you'd like to call, But I'm certain we'll have it back up and running eight o'clock both questions you asked. I need to see what you're saying. So until we're back up and running on the Internet side of things, I don't think I can answer your question. Although I will say the way you described the red oak. It sounds like it just needs to be have a major pruning back to a keep the integrity shape of what a tree canopy is gonna look like they're going to bring it back by half almost everywhere and definitely want to take out. Probably have a professional tree company come out and take out any dead branch. If there are intermingle or co mingled in that tree, the way you described fits. 20 ft. Taller, taller. Yeah, it's not something you do yourself. Yeah, definitely hire a professional tree company come out and take care of that for you. But if you have a lot of interior growth and very little on the outskirts of the tree, it is a time for a major pruning. Get it back into a smaller shape Because you don't wanna leave all those dead branches out there. The other blistering effect again. Probably call back after the top of the eight o'clock hour. I could just put you on hold if you wanna hang tight. There for about 2025 minutes. We'll definitely look and see if those pictures come up. But for that The kind of randomness the way you describe the randomness of the growth of the oak tree coming back. It sounds like it's in need of a heavy, heavy pruning and Probably because of the freeze. It's a very unusual time. Horticultural e speaking here is Quinn in Crosby up next, Quinn. Good morning..

Brett molina sorry for kelly lawler. Fight you on. Brian truitt tail together. They form the mothership their mission to harness their collective encyclopedic knowledge of nerdiness in all its forms to dissect every trailer flat twist and game released for the geeky fans the mothership saving the universe from bad comic book. Adaptations every friday. All aboard the mothership. The culture podcast from the usa today network. Thank you so much for joining us and happy. friday everybody. happy fray Let's beat the grew. I'm brett molina. I play video games. And what's getting me through. This week is a new game. It just came out for the nintendo switch called pokemon snap It's kinda sorta like a standard pokemon game because the concept is to catch them all but it's kind of in a different way you play as a research assistant. That's working on this island and the main doctor that works there is researching pokemon characters in the wild. So your job is to go through this island in different areas and snap pictures of pokemon. It's really simple gameplay. it's really fun. I feel like kind of this year's animal crossing in that. It's the kind of kicked back relaxing game that if you're just super stressed out about pandemic this is for you You literally just sitting in like a robotic cart and you're using the switches the camera and as pok mon pop up you take pictures you can do other stuff too like toss apples to lure them out and get better pictures. The whole premise of the game. You want to take the best picture possible of each pok mon and it's a lot of fun. It's very relaxing. Definitely a lot less action than like the regular ones having to train them and fight them and all that stuff so If you're looking for something just really laid back highly recommend it. I'm kelly lawler. I watch television What's getting me through this week. Is finishing up the second season for all mankind which is an apple. Show actually have a piece that is out today about apple as a whole and a bit. How dismissed it when it first came out and there wasn't much programming and none of it was great but now it's actually pretty good streaming service and for all mankind is actually one of my favorite shows on tv right now. It's in alternate history. So at the russians win the space race in nineteen sixty nine and get to the moon. I and so the space has never really ends because americans are not gonna losing so we keep coming up with new goalposts to try to beat them on so the first season is pretty cool and it sort of about establishing a base on the moon in the early seventies but the second season takes place in the eighties. There's lots of changes now. Like john lennon is still alive charles. Mary's camilla ito all sorts of little butterfly. Effect things. And there's like a whole crew people who live and work on the moon now and Just really thrilling got really great character stuff. A lot of big questions and is a really really good tv show. Highly recommend be second season ended with a big cliffhanger so it has already been renewed for a third season. So if you're worried about that kind of thing don't worry they will be back. It's interesting you talk about apple tv. 'cause i still remember when they announced it and it felt like i think like four or five shows at the time and i think all of us were just like how are they gonna keep this up. There's like you could finish everything in a week and then you're stuck with the streaming service. There has no program. Yeah they're like closer there in the twenty s now and they've got a few movies. They have some children's programming day. Have some like non fiction programming. That i don't really feel because tv shows so it's actually pretty good. Speller love eleven and we talked about last time on this podcast a lot. Mythic quest returns for season two also today. Which is the sort of the peg for my story. Which i love and fans this podcast would probably love because workplace sitcom set out of video game company so nerdy and very funny. It's from the guys who did. It's always sunny in philadelphia but it's not quite as quiz show. Which i like this better than it's always sunny if it's always sunny too much for you but you like what they're going for. You'll probably really like this.

I'll be okay. Okay, Okay, okay. You too. They began as a three guitars and drums group on But as the songs matured, they didn't necessarily require all four to be playing their standard instruments. The song didn't require drums, so Ringo wasn't on it, and it didn't require lead guitar. So George wasn't on it. And it didn't require a rhythm guitar. So John wasn't on it. The phrase that you need to remember and harm this is served. The music. These guys had so much genius. In their band and in their studio working with them. And they also had the greatness to realize that they didn't have to do it all on every track and that what you leave out is as important as what you put in. And that this song will tell you what it wants. And they did that tremendously. On this record. We've heard lead vocals from George and Paul so far.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

This is a Unique Problem--So We Need a Unique Solution
"Well. Thank you all for joining. I am really excited to talk to each of you because this conversation is really important especially as we move into the holidays and to start JJ often talks about how one of the things we do is often sort of a school house rock just defining our terms and sort of getting on the same page. So to that and I was wondering if we could talk about what suicide is it's mainly what is something that every American should know about that's quite a question. Yeah, right. Well, it's interesting. I I found myself sort of stunned by the question frankly because it's such a question. Yeah. It's such a huge sort of waited question. But I guess I would say first and foremost suicides an epidemic. I mean, I think it's a massive public health problem in our country and log Those of us that care greatly about veterans and about the military connected Community. It is a major and and really important problem in in those communities and one that people smartest people in the world have been trying to figure this out for a while and I think we're finally starting with all these conversations coming together. I think we're finally starting to potentially knock on some wood here. We're potentially maybe getting to this point where we're going to be able to crack this a little bit. I'm feeling thoughtful about it about about our ability to potentially make make a dent in that sat at last and in my comments are really a follow-on to this, you know, my my answer to talk to Americans need to know about suicide is how complex it is that it is massively complex and we haven't figured it out, which is essentially what Heidi just said and I agree. There's there's reason Hope we're really bad at predicting it right we could we can list off 12 or 16 warning signs. And then we can acknowledge that there are hundreds and thousands and innumerable warning signs that there's no definitive list. There are a lot of warning signs and none of them accurately predict who will die by Suicide. So that's one piece that that needs to be said, it's really complicated and we haven't fully figured it out yet. The other thing that needs to be said is we are getting closer to how to knowing how to treat it that we do know that we do have methods that prevent suicide that treat suicide and that's that's just as important as figuring out how to predict it right? I mean, even if we can't predict it we can prevent it. I mean both of those things actually can go together and one of the ways that song We know we can prevent it is through I mean, I'm kind of jumping to the chase here, but you know, lethal means safety and how to store Firearms is a reliable valid way to prevent suicide so I don't need to mean to blow past these other important more general questions, but that's a really important thing that I think we need to say up front. I don't know that we saved up front all the time. One thing. I think a lot of people don't know is that if you do limit access to a a method that someone was planning to use them and does not go on to find a different way. This is I think I teach this when I teach it and I I am baffled by the number of people in my audience have no idea about that. I think that is a that is a math out there that people will find a way if this is where they are and that's just the literature just doesn't back that up. So yeah, just just kind of reinforcing what Ted just said Thursday. To take a related but a little bit similarly different track. I think something that's often a misnomer is that suicide isn't a individual problem or a just a mental problem or just a clinical problem either? I think we need to this goes I think to some of what he was talking about it being an epidemic in a Public Health crisis and that way that it is a it's an American problem and it needs American Solutions in that in terms of like it's a public problem that needs public Solutions and both in the fact that suicide doesn't just impact the individual who has taken their life it you know, I think readers shows that for every every time an individual takes their life. It's your there are a hundred plus people who are directly impacted by wage loss of that individual and I think when we were talking about some communities in particular that makes it even more of a, you know, bigger bigger ripple effect of communities like the military Community, for example It's so important what you just said because another myth is that suicide is just about depression and therefore the domain of psychologists or the mental health field, but we know that that's not true. There are different studies and research and populations and etc. Etc. And anywhere between 50 and 90% We don't need to get into a specific statistic other than to say about half of at least about half of the people that died by Suicide do not have a diagnosable mental illness, which means it's about something besides mental illness suicide remains a problem. It doesn't mean that mental health professionals can't help those people also, but we have to look elsewhere besides just professional Mental Health Providers to solve this problem. It's a much bigger problem than I mean we know this that if you treat if you just give people treatment for depression, we don't address the issue. Problem of suicide the suicide numbers don't go down. So we have to look at other ways to address the problem of

I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time.

I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
Remembering when Howard Cosell announced he death of John Lennon
"Time out, is called three seconds remaining. John Smith is on the line and I don't care what's on the line. Howard, you have got to say way. No in the booth. Yes, we have to say it. Remember, this is just a football game. No matter who wins or loses and unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City. The most famous perhaps of all of the Penis, shot twice in the back, rushed the Roosevelt Hospital dead on arrival. Hard to go back to the game. After that news flash, which in duty bound we have to take Right I need it is remember remember watching watching that that money money night game because I'm the oldest of 45 in here. I remember that when Howard Cosell reported that Mark David Chapman had murdered John Lennon in front of his apartment in New York. And wow, There was no social media back then. But the outpouring of great people were devastated. Devastated. Remember Princess Diana? Member seeing people lined up on Michigan Avenue. They were having some type of a memorial to her in Chicago because she had been here over at Northwestern and this one, and when Elvis that, like those three stick out in my mind, remembering those being announced Am I? Harry Carey, talking about the death of Elvis and crying. Harry and Elvis were tight. And you had John Lennon and this one. It was unbelievable. I know for those who have never heard that clip. They say. You know, Howard Cosell just can't kind is barreling in with the news. You gotta understand that Howard had no finesse. Like that voice and the the cadence. That's who he was. You would think you know, Living more somber, You know, eh, Frank? We've got some sad news, but he did the way he did it. You know if you hear the way he did, as on arrived, yes, that he comes barreling in with the news. But that's who Howard Woz, and so it actually is more jolting when he gives the news. And you know, Howard puts it in perspective, though. I gotta give him credit. He says just a football game. But I got you this news, Frank back to you. And I know you know what Franklin for does after that, That's gonna be tough hearing that news because of just how How much the Beatles and how much John Lennon meant in that era. No question. Do you know it's crazy, but that's so hard. He brings up the game right, so there were three seconds left in the game at that point. It was Patriots Dolphins. The scheme was tied at 13, and they sent in Patriots kicker John Smith Toe win the game. This is Howard Cosell makes the announcement three seconds left. Here comes the kicker Patriots kicker John Smith to kick the game winning field goal and it was blocked. That game went into overtime in the Dolphins won it But like there's a story on ESPN dot com today that the kicker John Smith will forever be linked to this because it's like right after Howard Cosell, who's one of the most you know, notorious broadcasters of all time, announces such an event. Then millions of people watching are glued to their seats, sees this poor man have to go in there. He probably doesn't even know what's going on. But he's gets his field goal blocked, and now he's forever linked to it. Yeah, I remember watching that money and I found ball. Thank you. Monday night football. Woz, eh? It was a thing, man. It was a happening like we didn't have Game on month. Two games on Monday. Oh, Tuesday, we're gonna play. Oh, we gotta shut this. We're gonna play it on Wednesday and we got Thursday night football. We got 40,000 didn't have all that There wasn't even son in a football. No, it was Sunday afternoon. You had a late game. That would sometimes get you know you served by Heidi, right? Um, correct, but But when you didn't have that going on, it was it was money Money. Knight was the only night game going on. During that time. Money? No, it was the only time I can get that all the highlights of the week also is why Berman does it kind of been a traditional manner on my football today. You've seen the highlights a million times, but it just Berman in there. Give that gravitas of what? It was back in the day. So yes. Oh, my night football had such a such an enormous event. It was it was that for and also money that baseball for me as well, Because it is part of the brand going night football. Think of money. I'd baseball. The Tigers are playing with the lights. That's interesting. Yeah, Esso. It Z one of those things cap where When you have that kind of news now, keep in mind. They didn't break into the game, ABC News or anything else like that? It was announced right there at the game, Correct. It was strong, right? It wasn't We have to break away because we've got major news. Here's you know. What's that? Peter Jennings? No, no, no, no, no, Howard. And you know, in his ear there like you got to announce this and you've got to do it right now. Because I think it was the right decision. I mean, that was a massive massive name.
Ending Gun Violence in America is About Changing Attitudes
"Wanna ask you know in the sixties growing up. We lost chaff k. We lost our. We lost martin luther king. We lost the people. We spoken about tonight. You know nine thousand eight hundred. I also lost my great aunt. I was in florida on vacation between college and law school and had lunch with her and then she went on her way to another part of the state where she was killed when they entered her hotel in criminal. Senator hotel room shot through the door behind the door. We have averaged people being killed. We have famous people being cal. We have children at schools being killed whether it's connecticut or florida and we have people being shot down every day in the inner cities another small towns and throughout our country counties cities people who turned to violence and guns to solve their problems at there at the first sign of a problem often so beyond the laws you know i hope that as we move forward were also able to try to find a way to reach into communities are reaching their families and educate people and give them alternative ways to solve their problems rather than violence and guns to prove that they're macho. Were a powerful or just to use them to make a point. We have to change the attitudes in our country to not just the laws
Taking On Gun Laws in Hawaii
"Two. We're going back to the idea of an urpo law or protection law. He only purchase the gun for the purpose. He said quite explicitly of committing this crime. He bought it six. I believe only six weeks before he went to new york the first time so again you have him telling his wife about this where she could now. In very specific places under specific rulings could go in front of a judge. And say this is. The situation could call on foresee. This is the situation. He just purchased a gun. This is what he's saying but unfortunately at the time and in many states still there's very little option that she had there. And why would you not want to prevent that kind of violence ever. Why would you not want to have a legislative legal path for somebody to say. This person is told me they are. They're intending to commit murder with this gun. Call that's a. That's a great segue for carl who wanna get involved in this conversation. It's talked about half cited to bring the law to fruition in. And how it's working out. I think it's What i've learned about guns over the years it's the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line. And there's a lot of beard non-linear ironies about what what is actually useful. what's not and just starting with what we think it was. Kelly talked about that. We've already talked about in. This conversation is having a gun in many cases actually more dangerous than not having a gun. Now it's not always true. And that's what makes setting policy for for firearms or a difficult because there's definitely an urban rural split where there are things that you were. You need a gun in the country that you really don't in the city and in the city they're not really used for much of anything except for senseless murders with the exception of You know sony breaks into your apartment in the middle of the night. I would certainly feel like your new justified in shooting them but so there there's a lot of there's a lot of non air guns aren't always bad but i agree that there should be. There is if you've already pointed out in many states is Red flag flag laws. That at least give a person a fighting chance to There's still a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean if his white. If i don't i don't even know his name the campaign not to give a elicits. People who've killed people with guns is work. Because i don't even know the guy's name you'd know i rosa but anyway if his if that law if the law that we have now had been in effect then they're still. It was still a little bit of a long shot that anything would have happened but at least if you have it. There's a chance there's a chance that someone says wow that's that's really kinda bonkers we better. We better contact better. Find an attorney. Who can file petition and see guns takeaway temporarily until this mood passes or until he's gotten help so it's not there's no panacea there but one of the reasons i supported was i thought actually passed when we pass the bill in hawaii. I didn't realize that it was much more effective against suicide than it is for other of for other killings even for non suicides it gives people who want to intervene who who loves somebody enough to intervene. Don't want them to go kill somebody. It gives them a chance. And i think that's why it's important. Can i ask a question that car that kelly asked or brought up earlier mind. How did you balance freedom right because this is the endless debate that we all encounter my freedoms and my freedoms are absolute and calculated in the context obviously of new york city and personal freedom. But i'm curious how you legislatively balanced individual freedoms or rights with public safety here is it was debated and what we finally settled on. Was the first motion that you make as many of your lawyers and experts say motion which means the other party doesn't have to be there. You just go straight to the judge. So we'd put up the final version of the bill puts in a provision that says you can file an exporting worship motion which means you don't have to talk to the person that's about but that only lasts for fourteen days and within fourteen days you go in you have to serve the they have to serve the parties you know as a gun who's were concerned about and then the judge will get testimony from both sides and make a decision from there so the the the short answer is due process. No constitutional right is absolute. But if you're going to take away. Generally you have to have due process and that's how we worked in the due process in this situation.
"john lennon" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Welcome back to the. What difference does it make. Podcast and our tribute and acknowledgement of the anniversary of john lennon's assassination grin is the famed rock photographer. And also the author of a new memoir place right time but also a good friend of the lennon's i mean took some family photos and then you you were entrusted in nineteen eighty two kind of at the record plant and you recorded like all this. It was secret the said this double fantasy record in summer. It was told secret. Didn't know where they were going with it and they didn't want any interruptions. Are certainly there might press about it. They wanted to to work without the distractions. But but you know yoko jones. She said be ready for us to call you in july. But i can't tell you what it is like all you did it surprise you back in the studio no surprise me The whole world was waiting for them but I had actually done a postcode from johnson. My john lennon book. Also i don't even in the new york years The postcode during the time he was raising. Sean and on the front is a picture of two people in the newspaper. Who did and on the back was a picture of a brace sun. And just a self portrait of yokoun sean. And it just seemed like in. The news was a negative idea. And he and your sean sprite sunshine of life and that was a time when people say john lennon wise any working. That post really sums up why he was working and unfortunately is prophetically true when he did come back where we all know what happened now. This is forty years ago Where where were you at the time. in studio Around december six simple theft and we were up on night friday night until saturday morning and actually thursday night infighting night and i took some patients of them on the sidewalk in front of the record plan on forty fourth street. Saturday morning johnson. I'll see you later and his home at my darker monday night. Developing those issues china finished up in a rush into action supposed to see them. That might an shoulder patient. Before i went to voicemail. And i phone call that he had been shot and of course the first shot doesn't mean dead and then a friend of mine called up and city on the tv. That john was dead and now is the worst. Most prominent thing. I ever heard casino. What you can fix that. We can make that better since then. It's a such a sad endings. Essentially create story. But i'm trying to think about the forty years that we did have an all the art music that we got from john lennon and he did an interview november the month before he died with david sheff playboy magazine whose zurich says an interview and he talks about how he was feeling and what he learned. Well in the five years will raising show on and learned about healthy diet. He learned actually unusually for john lennon. You learned about delayed gratification. He learned about the responsibility and the joy that comes from taking care of your family and he talks about all of that in the playboy interview on bringing up. Because that's going to be republished next month. I believe people want to know about john lennon. They can hear from john lennon in the plate. We into rather than hearing other people talk about it. You want to see my book. John on the new york years has some great bushes stories in my new book. Out of you. You portrayed that shift nicely to talked about him discovering the macaroni macrobiotic diet and and other healthy lifestyle choices like you're talking about. We did talk about it in a book a little bit very important. He went from being a drunk rock in the beginning to being a responsible parent by the end it was a real chance for masonry learning process. It was very lovely the way you portrayed the friendship and getting to know them in the family really interesting. Yeah and you're still close with with yoko. And sean and all yeah. So that's wonderful. We also are talking with tim english. Who was kind of like us but a little bit older and was in college at the time and so he's going to tell his story of what went on at the time when he was in college. He's got a book out. It's called john lennon. Nineteen eighty playlist. Which is is kind of a cool premise. For the book he researched the music that john lennon was listening to in nineteen eighty. He of for us. And it's very interesting to see and it kind of gives you a. Oh window into. John lennon's musical preferences which was really nice. Where were you in one thousand nine hundred on december eighth nineteen eighty dorm room in providence rhode island watching monday night football and i was one of the worst nights in my life Devastated because you heard howard cosell Deliver the news and you know sometimes vinnie. Do these things they say. Well he's been taken to the hospital and maybe he's gone all through the case. Michael jackson said they'd take him to the hospital. But in this case. Sal said that said. He's the away at the hospital. So it was just heartbreaking. Devastating thing I think for anybody who was around. But especially if you are a beatles fan lennon chan like i was yeah It's amazing that's the same story for for most beatles fans. I mean everyone discovered in the us. Everyone discovered the beatles on ed sullivan. Like everyone was watching ed sullivan. It seems like everyone was at the time. nineteen eighty. All of america watches monday night football. And that's really how everyone heard the story absolutely one of the things i tried to join. The book provide a little background on the world of nineteen eighty and a different world and a lot of ways some some way similar but as far as communication went. I mean you mentioned two things to beat us on it solvent sixty four seventy five million people watch the only tv show that gets said audience today. Super bowl i mean. There's no couldn't replicate that even if you wanted to it's just too much media and too many different options likewise nineteen eighty and we didn't why was we didn't have cable until you're to later if you wanted to. You're watching tv entertainment Monday night you had five or six choices. One of which was monday night foot. Also i mean it was just a very different Wanted to hear a song that you love. At that time you had to turn on the rate either go out and buy it or turn on the radio that they might buy it some so you know for the younger readers especially i to show you know a different. It was a long time ago. Now i did. I felt like you really did a good job in this book by bringing together history history in general music history and the john lennon history so i think he did good create good perspective for younger readers. Thank you well. It all goes together doesn't it. I mean what's going on in the world affects the music that's taking place and sometimes vice versa. So you really have to have a little bit of understanding of both. I think to really grasp what's going on in either of so you you were in a dorm room. You hear this. This news like i would imagine that all college could suddenly just congregate.

"john lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Good as john. Henry was a steel drive a man. I think it's better. i like it. better really. Yeah and you know like we mentioned early. The reason we know all this was because of wieners reporting and he eventually got those documents released and there. Was you know in his circle. There was a big hubbub. Like what's going to be in there. what what secrets are will be revealed and really not much what was revealed was Embarrassment for the fbi embarrassment that they released a picture that wasn't even john lennon embarrassment that they had a very unethical And perhaps even the motivation behind trying to get this person deported and it was just on the face and that's why they tried to keep it under wraps for so many years hoping that it would not get out not because there were some big revealing documents but they were just like. Can we just sort of act like this. Didn't happen yeah. So we'll we'll classify everything is a national security risk. And they did. Actually that lasts trove of documents. Little handful that trickled out in two thousand six was a. m. i five kind of british secret service File on lennon that the us said if they it was it it that that last bit of document contained a file from a foreign government that had trusted the us to keep it and that it could result in economic diplomatic and military action. If they were to release it like the uk was just gonna going to bomb the us for releasing their documentary or file on john lennon. That's why the fbi held onto until two thousand six and then they lost a court case so like if there's a hero of the story it's jon wiener or john. Winer don't know how he says his name. And i'm sorry either way. Because he was the one. That really stood up for john lennon. But for the first amendment. You know and people's ability to be politically active without you. Know the threat of being intimidated So good for him. Totally you got anything else about this. Got nothing else. I have a an article that direct everybody touts on pop matters john lennon. Colon revolutionary man as political artists. And it's about all this sorry history but also just Pretty good critical evaluation of him as an activist. And it's a really good interesting article so check it out. And since i said check it out everybody. It's time for a listener mail. This is in reference of our haunted real estate. Guess that was a short stuff right. Had to be yeah. Please tell me we didn't do forty minutes on that. we could. Hey guys been a listener for years and finally have a good reason to write you. I was listening to the episode on whether you're supposed to disclose whether houses haunted or not the hit close to home two years ago. We bought our first house and made a point to run a report to see if anyone died in the house. The previous owner had just died within the air. But it didn't say where. I wasn't really worried about someone actually dying in the house. I was really just trying to get a big discount. However the agent said he had no snow. Big discount Cut two years later found out for neighbors and research that the previous owner did not die however he was a creep who actually had multiple abuse charges. In fact i found an article stating that. He had a woman tied up in our basement. Man who tortured until she was luckily able to escape for weeks That's almost worse than just a regular dying of natural causes. It's a million times worse. Well no. I was about to say worse than murder. I guess they're on par. Yeah well this debate that wing. I don't want to don't want to rank awful crimes. But i think that might creep me out just as much. Let's just say that sure The police searched the house and found oodles of weapons. The charges were eventually dropped. Apparently he had money and he redid the entire basement which is beyond creepy. I don't know if this qualifies as info that should have been provided us at purchase. It sure seems like it That is from andy. Andy i okay. Well thanks a lot. Andy is is there a heart over the i know but it's typed is it Could be Andie macdowell i think. She spells her name like that. I can see something. like this. Happening to any mcdowell cancer. I love well. Whether it's from andy mcdowell or not we appreciate the email Thank you. And yes. I i agree. I think the realtor should have disclosed that he asked me totally If you want to let us know about some way a realtor wrong to you or anybody did we want to hear about it.

"john lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right so john lennon is not gonna take this lying down He was paranoid. He was going on the mike. Douglas show and talking about the fbi coming after him First thing he did was probably any really really rich person would do as he hires a top rate bulldog attorney To try and defend this or at least delay this and this guy's name was leeann wilds and he really did delay this. He was sort of a master at filing these motions and getting extended and extended and lenin was able to stay in the country longer and longer and longer but he was also instrumental in Kind of leading linen. No this was a real situation that he was involved in right The thing is if you are a immigration prosecutor for the federal government of the united states. You know that there is not a ton of resources allocated to your division right or traditionally there hasn't been and so customarily the justice department has or i guess i n s has left it up to each prosecutor to determine how hard they want to prosecute the case. And so if you are a Upstanding person who's never posed any sort of threat to the united states and Maybe own a business or your productive member of society. There is a chance that the ins is going to look the other way not actually deport you even if you are here illegally. You've overstayed your visa. Came to the country illegally. Who knows And that's actually where. The dreamer program came from dhaka Basically said like the these particular immigrants were brought here as children and they pose no threat. Most of them are going to college. College bound there in the military. So we're going to not deport them. and what what lennon's lawyer told him was like all of this is true and yet they're putting the heat on you like i have never seen this is. This is clearly coming down from on high like they want to get you out of the united states and it's not just this prosecutor. Yeah and the other thing. That happens When it comes to a a case like this is they have to weigh Or they can be decided basically on the value than an immigrant Might bring to the us by being in american Living in the united states and so there was a you know. It's kind of funny to look back now and think that there had to be a case made that john lennon brings any kind of value but they did. And there was a series of letters written by bob dylan giambi says and joyce carol oates leonard. Bernstein john updike just a series of very famous artist. Kind of arguing in favor of john lennon being allowed to live here. It was sort of a flood of public outcry. Like what you know what little was known back then. At least like you can't just. There's tremendous value to john lennon. Stay in this country right. Don't forget john cage. Wrote a letter to and i'm sure it was kind of like well you know. Do you want me to write a letter for you john. He's like a yeah sure. I'm sure that would help a lot. John cage because sure no one in the nixon administration's ever heard of you. Yeah probably so. So the the one kind of the upshot. I'm just going full on using this word now. The upshot of of that letter writing campaign was not even just so much to demonstrate the value of of john lennon remaining in the united states. It was if you kick about like there's going to be a public outcry and you're going to be held to account and asked to explain why you guys kicked him out So did have a bit of that combined with His his attorneys tenacity. It kept john lennon in the country. He was actually never deported. Even though they were he had he lived for. I think two or three years with you have sixty days to leave the country order and his his lawyer kept getting extended an extended and extended but for three years. That was the threat that he was living under and again. If he was deported he would leave without his wife who had seen the country for her own custody battle So that was that was a lot of strain on him actually and The the the worst part about this whole thing is not that the fbi did this. And that the nixon administration single matter that it all came down to strom thurmond writing this memo to kick things off. It was that it worked like they sought to neutralize john lennon and his political activism. And he stopped he actually did. He gave in In august nineteen seventy two by announcing that he was going to take part in that series of concerts that was going to culminate at the republican national convention or engage in any kind of activist activities. Any longer. he's just going to go back to being a a musician again. Yeah and by this point Hoover was dead L patrick gray was the acting director of the fbi and in that same month that august before the election in november. The fbi's new york office reported to grade that he's no longer going to be involved with these concerts. He's no longer with the new left We don't really need to worry about anymore. we're gonna basically settle this case and close this case after nixon wins the election and like we said earlier a couple of times by a landslide. So this is all sort of for not anyway Gerald ford ended up overturning linens. Deportation order nineteen seventy five. That was already filed and in seventy six. He got his green card and lived in new york. Very famously and the dakota for the last four years of his life before he was murdered in the street Which i think we should do an upset on that at some point maybe in a couple years once this one is well in revere. You bet that'd be a good one So if if john lennon apparently before he died he gave a couple interviews and he said of this time like that. It nearly ruined him as an artist. In like you said he wasn't he wasn't just not sweating like he's sweated it every day. It was a big hairy problem in his life. All the time in a source of great stress so in in addition to the stress it it stole his focus like it made him think about that. In like how much he hated the nixon administration. How terrible the fbi was for how they were harassing him and possibly tapping his phone and it just took his mind from his art and he later said that it almo- almost ruined him as an artist because the work he was producing at the time was journalism not poetry as he put it and which is a very sad effect. But it's it's a really real world affect when you've got something just looming in the front of your mind that you can't get out of your mind especially if it's dealing with badness that's that has a terrible effect on you and and your life in general it can produce an entire bad period of your life you know yeah He was like. I had to let yoko sing a lot. I've got. I have something i have to say. I don't want to forget it in one of the fbi notes at that. Johnson claire concert The fbi informant reported that the song johnson. Claire was not up to lennon's usual standard and yoko can't even remain on key was it. Fbi informant. he had a good year. But you know. I like the song. It doesn't belong up there with his greatest songs but it was very. It was very clear. It was sort of in the tradition of protest songs. It's got this acoustic slide. Dobro guitar and You know it sort of it fits in with the great folk songs of all time. I think but not necessarily one of the great linen or beatles. Songs is it as.
"john lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Well were there any illegal ones that you're not going to tell us about. Yeah i i read an interview so this is like the depths of depravity. I didn't even listen to the interview. I read a fresh air interview with jon wiener or wigner about this and he said that. In the fbi responded. And said they found no evidence of illegal wiretapping. By the fbi or no legal wiretapping by the fbi. So so weiner's like okay. Does that mean they were doing illegal. Wiretapping or does it mean that they didn't look very hard for evidence it doesn't mean that they weren't tapping his phone is what he's right At least made me paranoid enough. Yeah key wasn't just not. He wasn't not sweating. This he was this made him very paranoid And with good reason but he took to going next door at the dakota building so he would let lenin use his phone in his apartment To make phone calls. And i guess you know assist with the calls at the same time a little bit and then the fbi said you know what could really help is if we could bust them currently for narcotics in the united states if we have an active charge drug charges against them in hoover senate out himself he said quote for info on a bureau Nyc pd narcotics. Division is aware of the subjects recent use of narcotics which is like every day and attempting to obtain enough info to arrest both subject and wife yoko investigation by this time. I'm thinking he was using heroin. I think that's what they were referencing as recent use. Oh really. i didn't a good starting to later. I thought it was the early seventies. I thought it happened during his lost weekend. But i may be wrong in that. I'm not gonna air toward you. Then 'cause i'm just surmising here. I'm not the one. That has a big old book of beatles history so i don't know they never they never actually busted him right. This is all just like they were planning on doing this but they never needed to. I don't think he was arrested in the united states. Was he out. I didn't know. I didn't get that impression but but it seemed like everything was kind of barreling toward that and even like you were saying the fbi was like we've let the mvp noted to to go do this so and if you take a step back like this is some heat some pressure that they're putting on john and yoko. They're basically saying we're going to split you guys up by deporting john because we know that yoko is not going to leave the country because of this custody battle. She can't afford to so she stay here. So if we threatened deportation a john lennon it might actually Keep him in line. And the fbi use the word neutralized that they were seeking to neutralize lennon And i guess some people who don't dig very deeply into the story or like they were going to assassinate john lennon and Jon wiener winer Has pointed out like this is not at all what they meant. They meant like basically making him ineffective like Taking him out of the game basically one way or another But not killing him just convincing him through putting this undo unfair undemocratic pressure on him to drop his activities with the new left. Yeah and they. And by the way. I think i think he probably was using heroin in the late sixties and had an on again off again but either way so that makes sense. Because i did see that guys like jerry rubin and I think rennie davis a couple of the chicago. Seven like they didn't even like hang out with them because he was doing too many drugs and i. I'm guessing that it wasn't like he was smoking so much. We can't even talk with them anymore. Like i think he was shooting dope and they weren't. Yeah well he never shot it. He always smoked dope. And that he and i think he and yoko. We're doing here when actually before the beatles broke up at the end okay When they were sort of a strange nut the with the beatles. Johnny oku but At any rate the like i said these investigations are going on. And they're going to his concerts and they're not even sending back information. That really means much even saying some of these informants like you know what they're they're not even really down with like the new left isn't even down with him because they think they're just quote self-aggrandizing aggrandizing rockstars. Yeah or there's little chance that all accomplish anything because they spend all their time doing drugs kind of sending the message like you really. Don't need to worry much about john lennon. He's not much of a threat. Kind of one of the funny things about this investigation was when lennon was one of the most famous people in the world. One of the most recognizable faces in the world on planet. Earth along with yoko ono and the fbi it passes around a sheet with linens picture on it so they can recognize him but it was the wrong photo. It was a different human. Being wasn't even john lennon. Yeah it was a street. Busker from the west village named david. Peel so funny. Who had a record that. I guess john lennon helped producer something. He looked vaguely like john lennon. But that was the that was the picture that the fbi passed under the guise of the wrong guy. They also fbi also put out an all points bulletin Searching for john lennon and said that he's at the saint regis at one fifty bank street Landscape supply surrey. I guess that's what they because the saint regis hotel is on central park and john lennon was indeed living on bank street at the time but he was at one. Oh five bank street so that all points bulletin was all kinds of wrong. But this is the level of like Capri that that that that be. I was conducting. You know trying to get john lennon. We'll take a break and we'll come back and talk a little bit about linens.
"john lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Started to target. John lennon yes so to set the stage here Of kind of how this all worked out was John lennon had He was able to enter the whole thing. Kind of boils down to whether or not he would be allowed to live in the us. Or whether or not If he was eventually allowed to live the us if they could legally deport him so he was able to enter the us on a work visa. And seventy one and concurrent with this. Yoko ono had a custody battle going on. She had a daughter from a previous marriage in the early seventies and she wasn't gonna leave at all She was legally there. They did try and deport her. They didn't know that she had a green card already. Which was sort of the first foible in this thing but they they knew that a lot of leverage over linen because if they deported him he would be without his wife who was going to stay there so they had this leverage Love living in new york city. That's where he wanted to make. His permanent home has so much so that that was also leverage that they had to. Yeah absolutely and so nixon's up for reelection in seventy two He would go on to win. You know in a big way against mcgovern. But they were. They were a about to common organisation. They were an administration that was very paranoid They would obviously with watergate. They showed that they were willing to do anything to ensure their victory And that included being really worried about people like john lennon I don't think he was at the top of their list of things to worry about but he was on their list. Thanks to strom thurmond of all people. Yes so strong. Thurman the horrible segregationist senator from what south carolina right He he actually kicked this whole thing off. 'cause i guess i. He noticed that john lennon was. Was you know he was a left. Leaning rockstar activists. He seems to have been one of the first people that notice the activism that was developing among john lennon and yoko ono and to perceive it as a threat to the establishment because all those recently enfranchised eighteen nineteen and twenty year old voters. Who hadn't had the right to vote until the twenty sixth amendment had been passed I don't remember exactly when it was passed. But it was between sixty eight and seventy two because seventy two is the first election. Those younger kids were going to be able to vote in. And he apparently saw lennon is among a group of people who could speak to those kids in sway them to the left and potentially unseat richard nixon. Which would turn out. It's just a total laugh because nixon mcgovern in a landslide put at the time they didn't know this and richard. Nixon wasn't going to take any chances so his his the note from strom thurman was very well received in the nixon administration. Yeah i think What i want to know is who told strom thurman what i want to know too because it gets mystery. I doubt strom thurmond wants to hip to any of this. But somebody probably gotten his ear and he said He sent a note the specifically said they try and get him deported as a quote the strategic countermeasure right And that's really kind of what. Got the ball rolling Also mentioned this other guy john. I don't know if it's weiner winer in this case it's pronounced weiner slave. Oh it is now. do you remember. There was the thirty rock episode. Where there's like. Hr mediator and he's like this very soft rosy cheeked call mild mannered man and Liz lemon says well. Mr winer slav. And he goes a no. It's pronounced weiner slave. I miss that show. It's that was a really good moment. They had such a great fun with dumb jokes. Like that bob blah blah. Yeah right no. That was arrested development. Oh that's was arrested development. They kind of had the same dna. No yup for sure. So weiner slave Was a writer in or is a writer and historian still in. He is why we know so much of this. He was writing a lot about john lennon. Writing a lot about the beatles He decided to file freedom of information. Act request to get a lot of these documents uncovered over the years and eventually was successful. in a big dump in nineteen ninety-seven and then another smaller win in two thousand six and if not been for his tenacity I don't know if anyone else would have picked up this mantle too because in the end it's not the most interesting story in the world true. I'd say that in a whisper. It's not like some huge. Like oh my god. Revelations it's sort of one of those things it's like just another example of the small things that authoritarians do in this country under you know in in the back rooms and the whispered rooms of the white house. Well you know. I think that's really true. And that's a really good point. Is that like if you just look at it on his face like you know the fbi followed around. John lennon kept tabs on them. Like if you read the files. It's really pedestrian. Boring stuff You might miss like the the real story here in the real story here. Is that a sitting. President directed the fbi to get dirt that he could use against a political rival in activist rockstar to get him deported or to figure out what leverage she could use against him so that that that sitting president could get reelected. That's the real story here and that the f. b. i. Acted as as you know this Basically a gestapo-type agency on behalf of nixon. That's the the real story that i think kinda gets covered up by john lennon and yoko ono celebrity in the you know the fbi kinda wackily following up around. Yeah it is funny because if you look at some of the files and some of the reports like they would go to his concerts and undercover agents would go to the concerts and report things like you know he for his encore. He's saying give peace a chance and we all know about that song right. They would take notes on song lyrics and stuff like that so it's all just kind of silly but Yeah i definitely agree that it's it's just an example of the links that nixon would go to to be a dirty thief. Yes well chuck. I think we should demonstrate the links that will go to bring everyone a message. Break what do you think by just.
"john lennon" Discussed on True Crime Garage
"Right and that mark chapman had managed to buy a ticket to sit next to all three of them. so picture. four seats here. David bowie says that night. The night after john lennon was killed. There were three empty seats in the front row next to me and he believes that it was going to be john lennon yoko ono in mark david chapman who were to occupy those seats that might have gave chapman the opportunity to kill all three of these people. Now i it has been stated in a certain places that the chapman chose lennon other over his other targets at of convenience the he was easier to get to possibly and that may be the truth. But most of what i could find an. It's my own personal belief. I think john lennon was at the top of his list. While first of all we know for a fact that he had a little bit of obsession with them when he was younger. That's why he learned how to play guitar. We have evidence of him singing a beatles songs. We have evidence that he had the beatles haircut for a while. We have his wife saying that he talked about killing john lennon. We have him signing out from work as john lennon We also have friends of his or acquaintances of his sane. You know every now and then he would talk bad about people. He talked bad about john. Lennon condom a phony saying that he could. He could do more that. He's yo so rich but he could give to these And he's not doing enough and he was verbally angry. Many years after the fact about lennon's popular than jesus comments from back in nineteen sixty six brian. He had said time and time again to several people. Can you believe that that man actually said that right. What gives him the right that he that he believes. he's bigger or more popular than jesus. Yeah and i think you know the big y y all this stuff happened i. I think there's multiple reasons. And i think mark had many reasons in his head and i think like you said access but again there's no proof that he would murdered anybody else. I mean he killed. John and he had just the same amount of opportunity to kill yoko he wanted to and he and he chose not to correct and he chose not to flee the area he totally could have got away. I mean new york He's not from there right. Nobody would have a clue who who this guy was. You shoot john lennon and you take off down the street and if you can get away because you're on foot if nobody stops you or people are afraid to stop you. Could you have a gun. He got away and flew back to hawaii before they even knew who who it was. Well we talked earlier about mark chapman looking for signs looking for something to stop him. He said that on the second trip back to new york city that he believed he couldn't kill lennon on his own. He didn't have the strength to do it. So he says that he invoked the spirit of the devil and he did what he believed. Were devil worshipping ceremonies by himself trying to ask the devil to help him kill john lennon and looking for signs. He says when he finally met. Lenin lenin gives him the autograph. He's waiting around. During that day on the eighth he met to other people and had conversations with them. One of them was a man by the name of paul garesh. Paul garage was somebody who frequently would stand outside of the dakota hoping to snap a photo of john lennon. He even had his picture taken with john lennon in november. And he is. They're talking with chapman chapman. He was standing next to chapman. When chapman got the autograph on the cover of the double fantasy album he was the guy that snapped the photo of lennon. Signing the autograph where you can see chapman over linens left shoulder. Chapman said later that he told this man that he met paul garesh. Hey he's got gotta come back sometime now. mind you. After the autograph lennon takes off in his his limo. And he says he's got to come back sometime. You should wait around and get your album. Autographed right they waited around for a little bit of time and at some point. Paul says you know. I waited long enough. I'm going to. I'm just gonna head home. i'll get it another day. Let's keep that in mind and then take it a step. Further chapman said that he met a woman outside of the dakota that day and he had asked her out on a date. Why i actually think that she. They're just like we said mark. David chapman were was outside the dakota multiple days. I think they actually met the day before. And then he solar gin the day of and they started kind of talking about like all. We should go. Grab something to eat or somethin'. Yeah he says that he asked her out on a date to which she said no. She said she wasn't going to go for whatever. Reason chapman says that had either of those interactions with either of those individuals worked out differently. He probably wouldn't have killed. He would not have killed john lennon on. December eighth nineteen eighty. He said he was gonna never gonna stop. I don't he. Said if paul would have stuck around to get the autograph if paul would have been there when came back he wouldn't have shot him he also said if he would have gone out on the date he would have left before lennon would have returned and he would not have had the opportunity to shoot him on the eighth. But you're exactly right. He said those two individuals should not feel bad because then just killed john the next day now or some other time like you said he was in new york for a period than he left new york and then he just kept making these trips in. Who's gonna eventually find him somewhere. And if it wasn't john. I believe he would kill somebody else on that list. Like you said he would have got to new york and somebody said all you know a you know. John's back in england you know. John lennon's back in england for a couple of months he might went just to the next person on the list. I think he had this like determination. He had this. This like you said would create fake characters that he felt like if he did this that he was accomplishing something. Well of course. John lennon's one of the most famous people in the world. If he kills that person he will obtain a certain level of that person's fame right. at least that's what he believed in. Unfortunately to this day forty years later we all know his name because of his actions. But it's so weird to me because the whole idea's like oh well. John lennon's phony and one could make that argument right alongside mark. David chapman yes. Here's this guy that talked about peace and love and all this stuff but was abusive towards his first wife may be abusive towards his.

Who really could I think he transferred onto this person? And Yoga was this combination for him of love her mother which in as you mentioned about Julia Heaves never really able to make that distinction with our so. He gets together with Yoko and they start collaborating. If you will and they also do something else he reads a book about primal scream therapy and he asks the author to come treat him. The author does the end result. Is You're supposed to scream or physically and vocally release your suffering and the agony that you feel but in that you are made to think about deliberately and talk about and process and consciously register the things that were traumas for you and that make you incredibly sad and so all of this material about his mother and feeling abandoned and his father and feeling abandoned and the chaos and the loss was something for the first time. He was not only allowed to confront he was made to confront. And think about. And then have this release and screaming. It's important because I think that the first album that he puts out with Yoko Ono the pasta last I go to ban does contain the song mother mother. You had me but I never had you. I wanted you. You didn't want me so I just got to tell you goodbye goodbye. Same verse about the father and then children don't do. Would I have done? I couldn't walk and tried to run so I just gotTa tell you goodbye goodbye and then this wailing of Mama. Don't daddy come home for the whole end of the song. And of course also the Song Julia specifically His mother so he emotes he processes and he releases these painful painful feelings. I would say it's like the first psychotherapy you know that John Lennon has in a way to really process what's happened and was tough because the primal scream therapy course required. I believe several months and they had to go out to California to to be treated and midway through. He was ordered to leave the country. So that the doctor would later say we took apart. We didn't put them back together and so he was incredibly raw and the result was this album which is just some of the most nakedly vulnerable music. I've ever heard I mean opens with a a funeral. Bell goes right into mother as you just said and it closes with a song called my mummy's dead. Which is made on a children's tape-recorder and it's just him kind of plain song singing with a plastic guitar. Mommy's dead it's all it's been so many years by Mommy's track after track is a song co working class hero. Were basically just visceral. Its Aunt Mimi and her ilk and all the people that tried to put them in a box when he just wanted to be free to think in a moat song called God God as a concept by which we measure our pain and then he basically goes through in the whole song majority of Song as him saying thinks he doesn't believe in and he just believe in Elvis.

"Now very soon. And that's how you were supposed to behave. Of course we know that you know feelings. Don't disappear just because you've repressed them and in fact in some ways when you repress them they have even more power to influence behavior and feeling states and in that sense all of this chaos and Tom moulton abandonment and then loss as John headed into his teenage years.

This is the point I want to make when you have a young childhood where it's not you're just abandoned and left but in fact you go back and forth you attach but you never know if that person to whom you've gotten all of these warm attachment feelings is going to stick around. You could suddenly be dropped or abandoned at Habit. Go back and forth you develop. What will be an important? Psychologists called an avoidance ambivalent attachment style. And what that means is more than the average person you long for attachment. You desperately need and want someone to be that person. That's with you all the time but at the same time you have a great paranoia and a great fear that at any moment that will be ripped out from under you and so people like that often appear highly neurotic intimately struggled with depression terrible anxiety lots of jealousy and lots of aggression and so that is what we start to see as John Lennon becomes a teenager that he starts to behave this way toward friends supposedly or you know Mates in school Let Me Aunt Mimi.
