Harrison Hops for Yoko! And takes a jab at McCartney from the Grave??


We do love our bold spoken hippie dippy style sister Yoko Ono, but truth be told, the tension between her and the Beatles was apparent.   We know she and John we’re all about Bed Peace and Worldly Brotherhood, so it’s funny to see-easy going George Harrison jumping out of his seat when he hears the beatnik vixen’s brash bottom has sunk into the same seat!

Harrison spares no expense as he takes a cute shot at bandmate McCartney’s charismatic nature either.  Watch the clip above to see George on a talk-show from the 70s for this retro rewind moment! Brought to you by The Eye of Faith !

Music Minute: “We’re all Water”- Yoko Ono (1971-72)

This music minute was brought to our attention by one of our friends, and the second we heard Yoko Ono‘s iconic cry, we knew we had a Music Minute on our hands.  We love strong artistic women who aren’t afraid to speak their mind.  Queen of the Lucid Dream, the track “We’re all water” truly draws the conversation… what do we all have in common? The thread of mankind linking us all together is simple! We are all Water!! (duh.)

An amazing recording with great musicians, Stan Bronstein is the KILLER sax player, Tex Gabriel is the other guitarist, Gary Van Scyoc is the bassist and Adam Ippolito is the keyboardist with Rich Frank as the drummer.  Oh, and did we mention it was produced by Phil Spector . Give this melodic jubilee a listen, and tell us what you guys think of The  Queen of the Peace Movement and Music Scene, Yoko Ono.

Sharing a similar experimental flavour as B-52’s smash “Rock Lobster“. We have to say this track somehow takes it to the next level with comparisons between iconic pop idols, and political figures.  From Chairman Mao to Richard Nixon, not to mention a few name drops of Marilyn Munro, Raquel Welsh, Lenny Bruce, and the Queen of England, this experimental jam really knocks our socks off and get’s our toe’s tappin’ BIG TIME.

Music Minute: Jack White & Wanda Jackson – Black Cab Sessions

The Black Cab Sessions is a series of one-song performances by musicians and poets recorded in the back of a black cab and filmed for an internet audience. A ‘blackcab’ is a taxicab that’s common to Britain.  These sessions are always good, but this one is particularly great!

The motto of the Black Cab Sessions is “one song, one take, one cab.” 

We find Jack White to be quite the revolutionist when it comes to his musical styling. And we adore him because helped reintroduce some of the greatest artists to a fad stricken America. We want to take a minute to show you all this ‘Black Cab’ Jam-sesh with iconic Wanda Jackson.

We get a glimpse on some of Wanda’s reflections on her music, her life, and some insight about the King himself; Elvis!  Oh, and if that wasn’t enough to get a person interested, the cab driver during this session is John C Reilly.

I Can See! I Can See The Eye!!

There is something to be said about what can be seen, and there isn’t very much to say when you can’t see at all.  We are taking a closer look at a Cat Eye, or Horn-rim.  A  bug-eye or no rim?? What are we talking about? Why, the wonderful world of corrective eye-wear!

Dating back to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, we find the first known case of ‘magnification’ depicted as ‘simple glass meniscal lenses’.  Evolving further to the days of Emperor Nero of Rome, when a globe or glass was filled with water to aid in enlarging small written text, it is also said that Nero would watch the Gladiatorial Games using an Emerald as a corrective lens.
Personnel style does not take a back seat when it comes to sporting frames for focusing.  Invented for the genuinely blind,  but manufactured in gross nowadays with plain plastic lenses for modern-day hipsters. We’ve taken a journey through decades to discover just how far we’ve come.  Glasses for fashion, glasses to see, but most importantly, a pair to focus on you and me.

Go all night, with the Stripe!

A trend as old as time. Word as old as rhyme. Stripe-tacular Style Stars! This is a second installation of pictures with a bunch of men who love wearing the ever effervescent stripe! We are in a tizzy seeing all of these old pic’s of some of Rock n’ Roll’s icons wearing the coolest clothes around! Always inspiring, never shying away from scrutiny, in the 60s and 70s times were bold so nobody cared how crazy they dressed! Everything and anything was cool! It sure seem’s like the carefree days are back… maybe it’s 2012 but we are seeing a lot of bold fashion out there. So whether we live or die; who gives a damn. We think you should just wear whatever the heck you want. Pinstripe, thick, thin, up, or down, all around, if you wear a stripe you can go all night!

Whether it’s a sleeve or pant leg, there is something bold happening on runways lately from Paris to Milan. Globally, a bold stripe is going further than it has in a long time! For too long, the subtle seersucker has been the epitome of casual chicness. Not, the thicker the better. Stripes are seriously taking over menswear!

Hopefully you guys can track down some kind of stripe that will suit you! Maybe it’s your grandfathers coat, or something you’ll pay way too much for from a designer shop, whatever works! You just cannot fail. People will appreciate your bold decision before anyone tries to lock you up! Besides, never fear. For the Eye is here! Even if the world outside is grim, we’ll help the sunshine in.

The Eye.
