Album John Lennon signed for his killer comes to auction

Lennon seen signing the album for Mark David Chapman whose face is seen partially on the right.

Starting today, you can own one of the most tragic pieces of Beatle history/memorabilia.  This is way heady.

On December 8th, 1980, John Lennon and Yoko Ono were leaving their home at the Dakota in New York City.  Lennon stopped to sign an autograph for a fan. He signed a copy of his “Double Vision” album and went on his way to a recording studio.

Eight hours later, John and Yoko returned to the Dakota and the young man who had gotten his autograph just hours earlier stepped out of the shadows and fired multiple times, killing Lennon and marking one of the saddest days in music history.

Apparently the shooter, Mark David Chapman, left his signed album at the scene and someone picked it up. it was used as evidence in the trial and then returned to the guy who picked it up that day and eventually sold in 1998.  Now it’s back up for sale and I am waaaayyyyy curious what this goes for.

Bidding has started at $400,000 and continues for 20 days at GoldinAuctions.com.

Lennon’s signature is in blue pen on the neck of the image of Yoko Ono on the front. Lennon also inscribed “1980” below his signature. The numbers above Lennon’s signature in black marker are police evidence markings. On the back of the album on the upper right corner to the left of the song listings, handwritten in blue pen are other police markings tat reads “Det M. Struk #7247 20 DET Sqd 1330 Hrs 12/9/80”.

Marc Anthony selling enchanting Florida Mansions

Marc Anthony has six kids, so you’ll forgive him for needing a little more space than most of us.  About 16,989 square feet of space, to be exact.

In Florida’s cozy Coral Gables (I swear that’s where the Golden Girls lived) Marc Anthony has a home that is impressively laid back and classic, despite being a behemoth of a home.

The muted grays and people-friendly furniture make you forget that you have to take multiple corridors to get to the 12 bedrooms.  Let’s take a look.

16,989 square feet, 12 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms
Asking: $27,000,000

Barack’s first day books sales beat out Michelles!

Barack’s first day books sales beat out Michelles!

In an upset that I’m sure Michelle Obama took in stride, husband Barack’s new memoir “A Promised Land,” sold an astonishing 887,000 copies.  Compared to Michelle’s 725,000 copies of “Becoming.”

I was shocked.  Both are so beloved, but Michelle has such a legion of female fans, and women tend to read more than men.  Whatever.

The Obamas signed a deal estimated to be worth over $60 million with Penguin Random House in 2017. Michelle’s book was the best-selling volume of 2018 and remained on the best-seller list for more than a year, with sales eclipsing 10 million by March 2019.

Rick Moranis attacker arrested

Rick Moranis attacker arrested

Rick Moranis, if you don’t know, is a rather beloved actor from Ghostbusters, Little Shop of Horrors, Honey I shrunk the Kids and a whole host of other films and tv.   Last month, while he was minding his own business, walking down 72nd street in New York City, a deranged man ran up and punched him in the head for no reason.

That’s not conjecture. The entire thing is on film and the two men had zero interaction as the attack began.

Police put out an APB and asked the public to help ID the attacker, but few thought there would be an arrest.  But despite all the crime and lunacy plaguing NYC right now, this guy was caught!

Police say Marquis Ventura was apprehended and later arrested on suspicion of assault in the second degree, which includes the allegation that he had “intent to cause serious physical injury to another person.”

Further details about the suspect, including whether he has retained a lawyer, were not immediately known.

Matthew Perry says ‘Friends’ reunion delayed to March 2021

On Thursday, Matthew Perry, shared on twitter that the highly anticipated Friends reunion will be delayed till March of 2021.  Just as well.  Why subject something so beautiful to this bullshit year.

“Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!” he wrote.


Castmates Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow have yet to comment on the news.

In August, the reunion was pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic after it was originally supposed to be taped in April and air in May.

Megyn Kelly will never return to mainstream media

Megyn Kelly will never return to mainstream media

TV presenter Megyn Kelly will never return to mainstream media, according to a source close to her.

Kelly, 49, was famously a news anchor at Fox News for 13 years before more recently headlining the ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ show on NBC, which was cancelled under acrimonious circumstances.

As reported by Page Six, a source close to the journalist has said that Kelly – who has since been dabbling in digital media – would not return to a mainstream outlet.

‘There’s no way she’d ever go back to a big corporate … legacy media [outlet],’ the source told Page Six. ‘She loves the authenticity and freedom of having her own direct channel.’

However, other TV insiders noted that after Kelly’s dramatic exit from Fox News in 2017 and her troubled time at NBC – which saw her show cancelled in 2018 after she appeared to defend blackface – she has not been in high demand.

In September, Kelly launched her own ‘Devil May Care Media’ company, and debuted a podcast series the same month.
