The Lennon's

This is a once in a lifetime occurance. Sean, Yoko, Cynthia and Julian Lennon posing as one big happy family, together at the September 16,2010 opening of Julian's photography show at New York's Morrison Hotel Gallery. Photo by Bob Gruen.

For reasons known only to themselves, next week is John Lennon week on PBS. Sunday night on Masterpiece Contemporary is "Lennon Naked" a dramatization of the last days of the Beatles, John and Yoko's marriage, and John's search for his father. Monday on American Masters, is "Lennon NYC". I was near certain that however much John loved being in the US, he was British. Shows what little I know.

The Mr. Mort photo of Sean Lennon and girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl is a segue to an NPR podcast series Tiny Desk Concerts. Earlier this week NPR released a podcast of the duo recorded at the NPR offices in Washington. Not only is Charlotte inoffensive to look at, she also plays accordion. That's high on my list. Their concert may be seen and heard here.

Is it just me, or did Sean avoid inheriting any of Yoko's DNA? He's the mirror image of his father.

Sure dodged a bullet there.

This is GREAT, Toad ! The gum snapping squeeze boxing vamp of a Muhl and Sean. Winsome and refreshing to a very sad lady blog follower today. What a surprise. I need to visit The Manner (Manster?) more often.

Thank you.
