Paul McCartney’s ‘My Valentine’ Featuring Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp

Paul McCartney, the most prolific songwriter in history, has directed a video to his latest song using the talents of Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp. Natalie had 1 day to learn and Johnny had about 15 minutes before filming began. Paul’s vision was not for a sign language interpretation OF his song, but for the use of signs as an artistic element IN his song. The key word is “interpretation” as ASL is a concept language. The final editing was left in the hands of Paul and his producers. Listen to this beautiful song and watch the lovely movements by these gifted artists including Johnny Depp playing guitar.

31 Years Since John Lennon Was Assassinated!


“I always was a rebel…but on the other hand, I wanted to be loved and accepted…and not just be a loudmouth, lunatic, poet, musician. But I cannot be what I am not.” – John Lennon

Here Are Statements Made By John’s Friends Immediately After His Murder.

Paul McCartney
“I have hidden my self in work today. But it keeps flashing in my mind. I feel shattered, angry and very sad. It’s just ridiculous. He was pretty rude about me sometimes, but I secretly admired him for it, and I always managed to stay in touch with him. There was no question that we weren’t friends, I really loved the guy. I think that what has happened will in years to come make people realize that John was an international statesman. He often looked a loony to many people. He made enemies, but he was fantastic. He was a warm man who cared a lot and with the record Give Peace A Chance helped stop the Vietnam War. He made a lot of sense.”

George Harrison
“After all we went through together I had and still have great love and respect for him. I am shocked and stunned. To rob life is ultimate robbery. This perpetual encroachment on other people’s space is taken to the limit with the use of a gun. It is an outrage that people can take other people’s lives when they obviously haven’t got their own lives in order.”

Donovan
“Here’s a nice story that comes to mind concerning my time with the Beatles. It was 1968 in India, we were all gathered together in the Maharishi’s bungalow, four Beatles, one Beach Boy, Mia Farrow and me. Maharishi was on the floor sitting cross-legged, but the rest of us were all still standing around as we’d just arrived. Anyway there was a kind of embarrassed hush in the room and John Lennon (always the funny one) decided to break the silence so he walked up to the Maharishi, patted him on the head and quietly said, ‘There’s a good guru.’ John certainly had a wicked tongue all right, but he was honest to a fault. Therefore, many people often considered him to be very hard and forward. Actually, that’s how he protected his sensitivities, by saying exactly what he felt. As far as I’m concerned, he ranks up there with Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Gandhi as a figure for peace in the world.”

Norman Mailer
“We have lost a genius of the spirit.”

Frank Sinatra
“It was a staggering moment when I first heard the news. Lennon was a most talented man and above all, a gentle soul. John and his colleagues set a high standard by which contemporary music continues to be measured.”

Sean Lennon Five years old
“Now Daddy is part of God. I guess when you die you become bigger, a part of everything.”

In Memory of John Lennon’s 71th Birthday!


My entire life changed when I was twelve years old and the Beatles came to America in 1964 which opened up the whole world for me. Their music turned me on so much that it was just like I had gone into another dimension. I understood the music and found it waking me up as though my previous twelve years I had been asleep.

The first time I saw their photograph John Lennon struck me as someone unique. My girlfriends all were in love with Paul McCartney. I was not in love with John, but when I heard him in interviews I loved his wit and I bought his first book, “In His Own Write” and found his humor to be the same as mine.

For those of you who were not alive when the Beatles blasted across America you will not easily understand the significance of their impact upon not only America, but the entire world. They changed our culture. The Beatles arrived in America just under three months after the assassination of President John Kennedy. This assassination had brought America into a massive depression and the fresh lively spirit of the Beatles was exactly what the country needed to boost itself.

I was fortunate to live in Los Angeles and saw the Beatles in person three different times. It was a lasting memory. I followed the Beatles faithfully until their breakup and from there I continued to follow each one’s music. But as always John seemed to be expressing the feelings that I had.

December 08, 1980 I was at the Los Angeles Forum watching the Los Angeles Kings play a hockey game. Suddenly I felt I had to leave the building quickly and as I was walking out one of the guards asked me if I had heard and I thought he meant the hockey score, and I said yes I had heard. When I got in my car I turned on the radio and a Beatles song was playing. When it finished the disc jockey said, “In memory of John Lennon who was shot to death this evening.” I couldn’t believe what I had just heard. I kept changing stations to get more information about what had happened. I could not stop crying and all I did was drive home quickly.

It was unbelievable that a man who had tried so hard to stop the war and bring people together with peace and love had been killed by an assassin. Of course I watched the news on television and went to bed with a sense of great loss because John Lennon represented so much of my life.

The next day I went to the Redondo Beach Pier and set staring at the ocean where I said my goodbyes to John for all he had brought into my life, and I released him into love and light knowing that he was already there.

I did not grieve for John because I know that our fate is pre destined. Also I know that there is a spirit world and he is there. I continue to listen to the Beatles and John Lennon’s music and always enjoy it. I am thankful that I lived in the most exciting time there was the 1960’s and I was able to experience Beatlemania full on.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 31 years since John was assassinated, but his legacy will live for ever and that speaks greatly for the man. Because John was only 40 years old when he died he will always be remembered young and I wonder what he would have been like at 70 years of age. He still would have been turning out fabulous music and art, just as Paul McCartney, Ringo, and George Harrison have done throughout the years.

So Happy Birthday John and thank you for everything you gave us. You will always live in our hearts.

Happy Birthday Paul Mc Cartney


It is difficult to believe that Paul McCartney is 68 years old because I remember him as a young man of 22. Time certainly slips into the future. I wish Paul the best of birthdays and many more to come and to keep giving the world his music.

We love you yea, yea, yea, yea.
