The Spin I’m In: A Superstar, Well Right You Are


John Lennon
#9 Dream


Viva Voce
From the Devil Himself

I was reminded of the 26th anniversary of the shooting of John Lennon this morning. I'm not a music critic, I'm an artist and it's difficult for me to put into words how profound his loss is to me even after all these years. I still get very emotional about it. Just finding the #9 Dream video turned on the waterworks.
Make some art today, or just turn it up really loud and all shine on.
I'd love to hear The Spin You're In in the comments section.
