I love you... forever  
I have much to report on, including many pictures. However, first, in my drunken stupor, I will report on Yoko Ono. So Saturday, at Freedom Fest or whatever, we were innocently standing by the bar when someone followed by an entourage came through. We had no clue who it was but were curious. Then "Karen" from Will & Grace gave some crazy flattering welcome to Yoko Ono, calling her a genius, a poet, among other things. Now this is where it got weird....

The DJ begins to play a typical circuity-party dance beat, whereupon Yoko begins to make orgasm sounds. After a bit of this, she then begins to sing"I love you... forever." She did this repeatedly for about 20 minutes while my friends and I just looked at each wondering what was going on. Some people were cheering. Others were frightened. One of the guys next to us said Yoko Ono always sounded like a clucking chicken to him. Seriously, this was one of the most cracked out things I'd witnessed but, hey, maybe the woman was high on crack when she did this. Who knows? It's all good. We had fun.

But it gets stranger still. I'm in line for the bathroom port-o-potties when I hear some guy gushing on about Yoko. "But Yoko. She was FIERCE! I can die now. I can't believe how incredible she was."


Seriously, I'm not exaggerating. The woman stood there, microphone in hand, making (bad) orgasm noises, repeating over and over "I love you [long pause] forever." There were no other words. There was no performance, other than her moving her head back and forth.

I don't get it. Was this some sort of odd performance art?

Confused in Manhattan

P.S. Yoko was followed later by Ru Paul (who was fierce). Bad pictures to follow.
Mood: drunk

To each his own, i guess.

Was RuPaul really really tall? I thought he/she was going to give up the drag thing and start going solely male. Or did he go as male?

she was there as a female. She was tall (definitely not just the camera adding height), but she didn't look ridiculously tall at all. She was just pure divafabulousosity. She was really fun and made me feel as if I got my money's worth out of those tickets.

Oh, and, btw... I love you.. forevah.

that sounds like quite the confusing experience.

I'm sure it was just some sort of new-age/hippie interpretive performance....or she really was high on crack ;)

My friend Josh had a pretty clever comment about her:

Does she even realize she's become a parody of herself?

I don't beleive I shall ever get performance art. However, drag queens ... I know my fair share. A good majority of them are over six foot as it is now add super high spiked heels.

Ru Paul and Yoko Ono both performing at the same festival? I thought this day would never come.

*urinates in excitement*

ru paul was kind of funny.

I can't say I've ever seen Yoko Ono in anything ever before, but seems to be her only claim to fame is she married someone famous. Maybe it was just her own way of saying "Me love you long time."
