    “The whole experience of watching someone else pretend to be you on screen, of seeing things you remember happening again in front of your eyes, is a very weird, disconcerting one, like having an incredibly vivid dream,” John wrote of the biopic.
    “And the story of how I ended up in a cinema, crying my eyes out at the sight of my family 60 years ago, is a long and convoluted one. And it begins, naturally enough, with a naked transgender woman with sparks flying out of her vagina.”

    Ringo Starr’s 11th Annual ‘Peace and Love’ Birthday Celebration



    Ringo Starr has shared highlights and behind-the-scenes footage from his 11th annual “Peace and Love” birthday celebration event at the Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles this weekend.
    As Starr explains during an interview in the clip, the “Peace and Love” celebration started in 2008 and came about after a journalist asked Starr what he wanted for his birthday. He replied,, “I’d like everyone on the planet to go, ‘Peace and love’ on my birthday.” The event has since become an annual July 7th tradition, and now fans in over 26 countries have organized their own celebrations.
    The Los Angeles event this past Sunday found Starr celebrating with David Lynch, Peter Jackson, Nils Lofgren, Sheila E., Benmont Tench, Ed Begley, Jr. and more. The clip also included snippets of performances by Ben Kyle and Sara Watkins, the Jacks and the students of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus in partnership with the Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center, who sang an original song about peace and love that will premiere online at a later date.
