ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME ANNEX NYC PRESENTS JOHN LENNON: THE NEW YORK CITY YEARS

“I have a love of this country. Two thousand years ago, we would all have wanted to live in Rome…and now this[NYC} is Rome. This is where the action is.” ~John Lennon “Tengo amor por este país. Hace dos mil años, todos hubiéramos querido vivir en Roma…y ahora esto (NYC)es Roma. Aca es donde está la acción. ” – John Lennon

We started the week with the memorial the city of NY made for John Lennon in the Central Park. We follow up with the opening that happened today of the exhibit of Lennon’s New York years. Alchemical Woman went to the show and we enjoyed it. If you are in New York you have to see it, and it is also re-comforting to go over the years of the history of rock preswented daily in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NY where the for ever famous and loved ones are. It is a very interesting experience all together. Go prepared to pay an entrance ticket of 26.55$ (with tax), it is worth while the investment. 

Empezamos la semana con el recordatorio que la ciudad de NY el hizo a John Lennon en el Central Park. SEguimos esa nota con la inauguración de la exibición de los días de Lennon en Nueva York. Alchemical Woman fue al show y lo disfrutamos mucho. Si están en Nueva York lo tienen que ver, y también es recomfortante repasar todos los años de la historia del rock presentado a diario en el Salon de la fama del Rock & Roll donde figuran los famos y amados de siempre. Es una experience muy interesante en su totalidad. Vayan preparados para pagar una entrada de 26,50$US(con tax), vale la pena la inversión.

We transcribe below the description of the show that appears in the site:(press flags at the side for translation)

“The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC is proud to present JOHN LENNON: THE NEW YORK CITY YEARS, which opens May 12, 2009. This feature exhibit explores John Lennon’s passion for music, art, politics and film, with New York City as his backdrop. Capturing a time in Lennon’s life that was full of political and social activism, the exhibit reflects the spirit of the era during which he created some of his best work. Highlights of Lennon’s artifacts include his inimitable fashion statements, iconic photographs, legendary instruments, original handwritten lyrics and artwork.

To denote Lennon’s lengthy fight against deportation, instigated by the Nixon administration’s belief that his anti-war campaign presented a threat to its power, his green card and never-before-seen letters of support for his American visa are on display. These private letters are penned by the likes of famed singer/songwriter Joan Baez, entertainer Dick Clark and John Lindsay, the mayor of NYC from 1966 to 1973. Also debuting is an original self portrait of Lennon with fist in air, in the guise of New York City’s famed landmark, the Statue of Liberty. Created in the early Seventies, this powerful work of art represents a tumultuous and impactful period in American history; a time that focused on freedom and the power of the people.”

We will now share with you some of Lennon’s insights that we found interesting.

about women and feminism:

“BREAD AND BABIES, AS EVERY HOUSEWIFE KNOWS IS A FULL TIME JOB.” John Lennon 1980

about peace:

“IF EVERYONE DEMANDS PEACE INSTEAD OF ANOTHER TELEVISION SET- THERE WOULD BE PEACE.” John Lennon 1969

answering the critics of his sabbatical:

(…)” THE HARDEST PART IS FACING YOURSELF. IT’S EASIER TO SHOUT ABOUT “REVOLUTIONS” AND “POWER OF THE PEOPLE” THAN IT IS TO LOOK AT YOURSELF AND TRY TO LOOK WHAT IS REALLY INSIDE YOU AND WHAT ISN’T ” John Lennon 1980

Compartiremos ahora algunos de los pensamientos de Lennon que nos parecieron interesantes:

Sobre las mujeres y el feminismo:

“PAN Y BEBES, COMO TODA AMA DE CASA SABE ES UN TRABAJO DE TIEMPO COMPLETO.” John Lennon 1980

sobre la paz:

“SI TODO EL MUNDO [PIDIERA POR LA PAZ EN VEZ DE POR OTRA TELEVISION – HABRIA PAZ” John Lennon 1969

contestando a las críticas a su sabático:

(…)”LA PARTE MAS DIFICIL ES ENFRENTARSE A UNO MISMO. ES MAS FACIL GRITAR SOBRE “REVOLUCIONES” Y POR “EL PODER A LA GENTE” QUE MIRAR ADENTRO DE UNO Y VER LO QUE REALMENTE ESTA ADENTRO DE UNO Y QUE NO. ” John Lennon, 1980
