John Lennon at 70

October 9, 2010

Today, we celebrate John Lennon’s 70th Birthday. Well you know John as one of the best singers. He symbolizes peace. He once told us in a song Imagine all the people, living for today, living life in peace & sharing all the world. He wants the world to live equally & peacefully, with no war. He wants the world to give peace a chance. He wants us to make the world live as one.

John is also known for the word “bagism”. It represents a form of total communication, meaning the listener would hear only the bagist’s message. John & Yoko said that, by living in a bag, a person could not be judged by others on the basis of skin color, gender, hair length, attire, age, or any other such attributes.

If he wasn’t murdered by Mark Chapman in 1980, then he would have been still alive today celebrating his 70th birthday. We can hardly imagine that he’s gone. Well, EMI recently released a box set containing reissues & remasters of his albums. I’ll find a way to buy a copy, if possible, although I have a compilation of his popular songs. The spirit & music lives on forever.

Last 2007, I heard this website that has lots of violence in it. So, I went to this site called StickDeath.com & I saw a lot of its animations, games, pictures, etc. that have lots of violence. It is a good website, though.

StickDeath is an animated cartoon made by Rob Lewis in 1995. At that time, its famous animations were K9, Parashit, COPS & FLIR. During the early 2000s, he started creating series like Anti Autotheft Devices, Al-Quida Cam & Superbeast. At the same year, it ventured into games, such as Crack House Clean Up, SBOX (XBOX Version of SD) & SWAT (Sticks With Ass-kiching Tactics).

Despite the bad comments of  some people, SD was one of the most popular Websites during the early 2000s. SD is very influenced in rock music & some of their favorite bands are Metallica, Fear Factory, Lamb of God & Scum of the Earth. The Return of the Martyr Machine was its last animation in 2005. Since then, its website is still active, although Rob Lewis left the website unupdated.

I hope Rob Lewis revives SD today. We want to see his new animations.
