Den anden version er også god, John

Purisme og enkelhed er ikke nødvendigvis bedre end barok og udsyrethed, men ellers hører jeg, hvad du siger! -

(fra det sidste interview med John Lennon, 5. december 1980, trykt i sin helhed for første gang i det seneste nummer af Rolling Stone)

“Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey.” It’s one of my favourites: “Your inside is out, and your outside is in/ Your outside is in, and your inside is out“.

Right, but what did the critics say? “A bit simplistic, no imagery in it.” Perhaps I should have said: “Your inside is like a whale juice dripping from the fermented foam of the teeny-boppers’ VD in Times Square as I injected my white clown face with heroin and performed in red-leather knickers.” Maybe then they’d like it, right?

Thats great, that sounds like Allen Ginsberg.

Right, we can all do Ginsberg – and I like Ginsberg. But try shaving it all off and getting down to the nitty-gritty – that’s what I always tried to write … except for the occasional “Walrus”bit. I’m not interested in describing a fucking tree. I’m interested in climbing it or being under it.
