Who shot Lennon?

“Contrary to all reports about a lone drifter named Mark David Chapman who allegedly shot John Lennon in the back on December 8, 1980 you’ll find ample evidence in the back issues of Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report magazines to suggest otherwise. Namely, that John Lennon was, not only politically assassinated, but that Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and, you’d better sit down, horror novelist Stephen King are the three people who can be proven guilty of the crime.” Preposterous? A wind-up? After reading some of this stuff even I (cynic that I am) am beginning to wonder… Find out more: The truth about John Lennon’s murder.

Fucked off

I’m sitting in work, the sun is shining outside. It’s a Bank Holiday and most of the country is on holiday today and tomorrow. And I’m having a crap day. No details, but you’d think the word management would imply certain things. Obviously it doesn’t. Don’t ya just love this new age of communication?

Books

Updated my Amazon wishlist to REMOVE two books. I’m marking this auspicious occasion with a post as I normally just add things to it. So if you have recently bought either of the following for me, sorry but you’ll have to take it back: Oxygen by Andrew Miller and Number9dream by David Mitchell. They get added to the pile of 22 books I’ve still to read…

Finals, baby!

Just. It was a tight series between the Lakers and the Kings, but my team held on. They will go into the final series as favourties to 3-peat. I’m worried though. The Nets story is one that you couldn’t write, and despite the dominance of the Western Conference you just never know: NBA.com: FINALS 2002.

I seem to be heading down a photography route over the past couple of months, must be about time for me to get a digital camera and dazzle you all with my artistic tendencies. Or not. Anyway, he has some very nice links and photo’s on his site, and a nice clean look too – top stuff!

Interviews

speakeasy is heading back to interview land, and I can’t wait. If you haven’t read any of his interviews with the more prodigious web personalities I would advise you go there. Now. Ehh, if you are still here I presume you’ve either: a. already read the interviews b. decided to come back OK, so I should now write something really interesting to convince you to stay but as my weekend consisted of watching football, gardening, and ogling the new contestant on Big Brother… don’t really have that much to talk about. I won’t go into the coffee spillage incident, suffice to say that when a waitress accidentally tips a cup of coffee into your lap, it’s not a very pleasant …

Scruples Saturday

Rabbit Rabbit Saturday Scruples 1. You want to quit a job without notice but you need a good reference from your employer. Do you invent a family health emergency? Probably not, I would like to think that by being honest with my employer I would be able to arrange some way of not serving my notice, and still be able to get a good reference. I guess it just depends on your employer? It also depends on the ‘leaving’ situation. If I was so pissed off with the place, and I didn’t think they deserved an honest explanation then, yes I might very well tell them my parents were being held hostage. 2. In a parking lot, you accidentally dent …
