Photo Monday – 2010 Februay 21

Well, a site in Hebrew.

And a strange new aggregation site.

And a photo appears on a post by a New York City Bike Snob called The Aristocrats: Stay Classy.

and the original:

Snobby if you live with a woman who understands this you are indeed a very lucky man!
BTW I have never seen my friend Brian riding his recumbent & now I think I have a little too much info! Hello from Sydney.

Yep, I knew it would come to this. A couple commentors could not leave well enough alone concerning the recumbent lady even if she is a little Yoko Ono-ish. Now look what we have to see for the next two weeks.

When I asked to have the Yoko ‘bento removed from the site, maybe I should have just asked to have her Larry Kinged. I never knew that it could have been worse. And so very, very wrong….

Yoko Bento! Good one G. Perceived Sharpness spike just registered.

I was just having another look at Snob’s photographic example of sub-aristocracy (though not so lowly as bar serving “baristocracy”), because it is a deep and layered image and I am finding its interpretation to be an ongoing journey… or to put it another way, it is a train wreak and I can’t help but stare. While caught up in this morbid curiosity the comment about “Yoko Bento” just kept coming back to me, until suddenly I was struck… John Lennon isn’t dead!! His death was faked and he now gets around in the nuddy on a recumbent with his love Yoko, reliving their public nudity of “back in the day”. Annie Leibovitz might have even been invited back in secret for this particular shot of Lennon, who now goes by some cryptically nondescript alias such as “John Benton” or “John Lent-on”.
Anyway, since this revelation I have had a little time to calm down and think rationally, and I will admit that I am probably getting carried away. The Sun Lounge Captain is probably just some old hippy listening to this on the iPod hiding behind his hair.

My comment:
Kent, your sexism and bigotry are sad and are unfortunate. I’ll have to discuss this with you next time we meet.
And for the rest of you. John Lennon rocks and I am proud of the comparison, and I ask, does this describe you?
Day after day,
Alone on a hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he’s just a fool,
And he never gives an answer,
But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning ’round.
Maybe one day, the ones of you who need to, will grow up. May we live in hope.
