John Lennon sees a UFO

balconySince everyone is jumping on The Beatles bandwagon lately, so will I. On August 23rd, 1974 John Lennon was on the balcony of his apartment in New York. He witnessed and later described a “Flying Saucer” hovering near his building, not a helicopter, and not a balloon.

In the clip provided below you can listen to John explain, in his own words, what he saw.

Kayne-spiracy: Marketing 101

Kayne_Swift_LenoMusic lovers had nothing to be outraged about lately so wasn’t it fantastic when Kayne West jumped to the stage during MTV’s music awards on Sunday night. The hip-hop star interrupted country singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance of her award for Best Female Video. Shock, at Mr. West’s actions, were felt around the gossip-sphere. Music fans asked “How could he do that?” “Will he apologize?” Luckily Kayne West was scheduled for an interview on the premier episode of Jay Leno’s new show the following day.

I know it’s not an “aliens run the planet” conspiracy but was it all hoaxed? If only there was a connection between the parties involved. Oh wait a minute.

Big Machine Records is an American independent record label specializing in country music artists. Big Machine joined with Universal Republic in June 2009 to found a new label, Republic Records Nashville. It’s recording stars include the American country popstar Taylor Swift.

Roc-A-Fella Records is an American vanity record label founded by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Damon Dash, and Kareem “Biggs” Burke. A subsidiary of Universal Music Group. It’s recording stars include the award winner Kayne West

The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American television network and is currently part of the media company NBC Universal.

A very interesting aspect, at least to me, is Kayne’s apology on Jay Leno. It seemed that the entire segment was contrived to not actually mention what had happened and who it involved. Approaching it in this way¬† would make people who didn’t know transpired want to find out. Kayne only says “Taylor” once during the interview and it’s 2 minutes and 30 seconds into an interview that is only 2 minutes and 50 seconds long. And, again. he never even says what happened that he is apologizing for. The “What would your mother say to you” question by Leno is so over dramatic it’s like watching a soap opera.

So Kayne will sell more records, since he will retain his “rebel” status. Taylor Swift will sell more records and become America’s darling because she was “shamed” on national TV, and people will watch Jay Leno’s show to see Kayne apologize. The question remains, “Who lost anything in this?” The answer, “No one”. America you’ve just been conned. It’s been done before and it will be done again, moon landing, alien reptiles, just wait you’ll see how crazy it is when we catch Osama in some luxury penthouse, oh but that is a couple years away.
