The Dakota blood baptism

On this day in Nefarious History, John Lennon was shot to death by Mark David Chapman {not too notable in itself for Me, as I Am not a Beatles fan} on the steps of the Dakota building, consecrating the grounds with blood & fire, where Rosemary's Baby was centered around.

I was with Ma returning from Carpenter, turning into a Burger King after school when I heard it over the radio. Didn't think much about it at the time, except that all the radio stations were playing The Beatles, like they did with Elvis. For that one, I had just concluded a class at Ryu Dojo Kenpo Karate, still in My gi, driving home.

Interesting timing with this news and recent events. Ergo, the relevant inclusion of this video:

Viewing the architecture, I just always felt there was something about it... something diabolical, and why it would be naturally chosen as a backdrop for Rosemary's Baby {which I have since come to realize is almost biographical of My Mother's experience having Me, and all the strange characters & occurrences about, except out West. I believe I may have actually walked by there on a couple of occasions with parentage while staying in New York for perhaps a couple of days until I returned to California from living in Italy.
