Visiting my Nonna’s house
2nd April, 2014.

ambedo n. a kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—which leads to a dawning awareness of the haunting fragility of life.

CUT PIECE (1964)
YOKO ONO

In regards to the amount of throwaway Yoko comparisons/hashtagging I’ve seen made in relation to Trent Reznor’s wife joining him on stage for a Nine Inch Nails show in Perth the other night: a bit sexist and uninformed. Do your research before you start making the comparison. Yoko Ono was already an incredibly important artist in her own right (see: associations with the avant-garde Fluxus movement and her career in the early ’60s) before she met John Lennon, and I find the ignorance as to her career a source of constant frustration. From what I have read, her round-the-clock presence at Lennon’s side was more a result of Lennon’s insecurity than her wanting to manipulate his and The Beatles’ music. She is also longtime activist for peace and equality too, so yeah, what a horrible bitch, right? I don’t expect people to dig her art or whatever, it is incredibly divisive and not always an easy listening/viewing/experience, but the woman deserves to be more than fucking shorthand for ‘thing that fucks up thing’.
