Sitting In An English Garden Waiting For The Sun

I Met The Walrus is an Oscar-nominated short film/animation by a dude called Josh Raskin based on a reel-to-reel recording of an interview with Lennon during the bed-in in 1969 by a (then) 14 year old kid named Jerry Levitan.

It's an interesting interview, demonstrating where Lennon's head was at (a similar tone was expressed in Lennon's response to John Hoyland's open letter to him, published in the Jan 10 1969 issue of Black Dwarf) at the time as well as showcasing some truly stunning animation.

Also worth mentioning when you consider that the hand-written lyrics to "Give Peace A Chance" have recently been sold for $833,654.

Goo goo g'joob.
