We were in Liverpool last weekend for a friend’s wedding.

beatledirt:

John Lennon (pulling his famous monkey face!) with his Aunt Harrie, Uncle Norman, cousin Leila, and her two brothers (of of them is named David but I’m not sure which). Norman was Harrie’s second husband, her first having been Ali Hafez who was Egyptian.
Leila and John kept in contact his entire life and remained close until the end. They regularly communicated through mail, asked each other for photos of their children, how the spouse was doing, etc. In many of Johns letters to Leila he spoke of Julian more than Sean, and talked about how he couldn’t wait for the day when they would be very close and could be together and happy.
John is probably around 13 in this picture. Maybe. I could be so wrong though.

baby's first words
baby: d-d-da..
father: daddy?
baby: dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915.[1] To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,
Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.[2]
The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.
