The Sky’s the Limit as 50 Museums Join to Stream Yoko Ono-inspired Cloud Gazing

In 1967, Yoko Ono installed a live feed of the sky above London’s Lisson Gallery, flooding sun, light, and clouds into the art space. It was “a TV just to see the sky,” the artist said. At the time, Ono was living in a windowless home and “wanted so desperately to have a sky in my apartment.” For her, the sky has held a healing presence, as she recalls in interviews that during her childhood in World War II Japan, “the sky was always for there for me.” Over the years, she continued to make artworks about the sky, most recently installing a blue mosaic speckled with clouds in a New York City subway.

Iowa’s Izaya Fullard proud of family history to Yoko Ono and John Lennon

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa senior first baseman Izaya Fullard is known for a lot of things such as hitting home runs or that his dad, Kenny Fullard, is a former Iowa basketball player.

THIS >>>> Re: Stupid Yoko Ono...ruined everything.

Whatever choice(s) you make makes you. Choose wisely. They have publicly accused the football program of providing impermissible benefits to their players. They’ll just try to burn the whole AD down if they don’t get what they want. Oh look who’s back. Did you like your shoutout in the article...

‘Working Class Hero’: John Lennon and Yoko Ono On The Classic Song

Excerpted from John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection, what follows is John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s words on the track “Working Class Hero.”. John Lennon: I like “Working Class Hero” – as a song, or a poem or whatever it is. I think its concept is revolutionary. It’s for the people like me who are working class, who are supposed to be processed into the middle classes, or into the machinery. It’s my experience, and I hope it’s just a warning to people. The thing about the song that nobody ever got right was that it was supposed to be sardonic. It had nothing to do with socialism, it had to do with: if you want to go through that trip, you’ll get up to where I am, and this is what you’ll be – some guy whining on a record, all right? If you want to do it, do it. I’m not recommending it, I’m just saying it’s something to be, like a lawyer.
