No, I will NOT be watching

Standard

Sometime this month a group of psychics are going to conduct a seance on pay-per-view to try to contact John. Apparently they will also be visiting various sites of importance from John’s life, including the Dakota. (Advice to Yoko: have the boiling oil ready.)
I was trying to figure out exactly how this makes me feel. It goes without saying that I think it’s a bunch of bunk and that any “contact” made will be manufactured for television. But there’s more to it. Imagine you owned a beautiful statue, or any other art object. It sat in a place of honor in your home with a spotlight on it. Every day you looked at it and each time you were amazed by what you saw, thrilled that you posessed it and humbled by its beauty. It made you happy just to see it and know it was there. Then imagine that some people who had been shoveling manure with their bare hands came in and started pawing your statue, wiping their filthy hands all over it. Then they picked it up and started tossing it around in the air, laughing. Imagine all that, and that pretty well sums up how I feel about these people daring to try to associate themselves with John and make money off his memory. It makes me want to vomit.
And that’s all I have to say about that.

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
