I met the Walrus

I’ve been looking into various things around Gardening and the nature of Violence lately, and via www.point3recurring stumbled across this incredibly erudite interview with John Lennon by a 14 year old who broke into his hotel room. It was animated recently and nominated for an academy award.

“In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrator James Braithwaite have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short.”
