I ran across this video by the band Sour, while I perused the sites that I normally do in a day’s time. The song is called 日々の音色 (hibi no neiro–the tone of everyday). Fans of the band created the various parts of this video by filiming themselves on webcams. All I can say is that a LOT must have went into making and editing this video.
I am not familiar with the band Sour, but, the video is well made! The song is great, too (what little I can understand). But, it has a good beat. So good beat + great visuals = a pretty damned enjoyable time spent watching and listening! Enjoy!!

John Lennon standing in front of the Statue of Liberty
Today is a rather somber day. Twenty-eight years ago, today, John Lennon was murdered in front of his apartment building in New York City. The following day John’s wife, Yoko Ono, issued this statement:
“There is no funeral for John. John loved and prayed for the human race. Please pray the same for him. Love, Yoko and Sean.”
This day is close to my heart, even though I wasn’t even in the world when it happened. Because of John Lennon’s death, and my birth eleven days later, I was named in his honor.
John was a peaceful man, and I am taking time today to honor him. His music, his art and his life mean very much to me, and I wished to pay him this small tribute.
