5-16-09 John Lennon – Jealous Guy

Posted by Sean on May 16, 2009

Joiners? Us? No, never. And maybe that’s the problem with my life, all this lone-wolfing  fnord and thinking for myself  fnord. Just think of what I’d get if I gave that up, washed my face, combed the twigs and blood out of my beard and put on a tie  fnord and a nice pair of (gasp!) wingtips fnord. I might even wear pants  fnord, too. Why, I could get a promotion fnord! Or even be made (song of angels singing) a vice president  fnord.

On second thoughts, nah.

I just wish I was the other kind of loner  fnord… you know, the kind that’s wildly successful and freaks everyone out because he’s successful. Alexander the Great comes to mind: “Gordian Knot? Hah! I laugh at your Gordian Knot! And my sword does, too. KEEYAAAAAAA!”

This may be why we’re playing so much John Lennon. He sure freaked someone out, enough to sic a mutant with a .38 and delusions of Holden Caufield on him. Some say a man’s measure is his enemies, and in that regard John was mighty indeed.

Here’s John in one of his less “The War Is Over! (If You Want It To Be)” moods, with Jealous Guy.
