With all the conspiracy theories written about JFK and Marilyn Monroe, why isn't there a conspiracy theory that says Joe DiMaggio shot JFK?

I visited Graceland when I helped my cousin move out there. I was at his tombstone, and a single leaf fell, and landed on my shoulder, and stuck the landing! I put it in a frame and gave it to my Mom who was perhaps one of the biggest Elvis fans ever. :)

I also saw him in NYC around 1993 or so, he was driving a UPS truck.

Did Joe DiMaggio order John F. Kennedy killed?

This past Saturday marked the 45th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. According to scholars, historians, politicians, The Government, and the History Channel, Kennedy was gunned down by Lee Harvey Oswald, a mysterious goon who was both an ex-Marine and a Communist. These powers that be claim Oswald acted alone, entirely driven by his own delusions of grandeur. Or so the story goes.

Of course, you could believe the conspiracists. The ones who believe Oswald was set up. They believe it could have been any one of the following:

– The Cubans
– The Russians
– The CIA (check out this wild link!)
– The FBI
– The Mob
– Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson
– The Israelis
– The Illuminati
– Tonya Harding

But the one person who seems to get off pretty easy on the conspiracy front is the Yankee Clipper himself, Joe DiMaggio. No one seems to question his lack of involvement. Consider this:

Joe DiMaggio married Marilyn Monroe in 1954. Despite being divorced only nine months later, for years DiMaggio continuously put flowers on her grave. He had an undying commitment to her. Monroe, who died of an overdose in 1962, supposedly had affairs with both John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. According to this article, DiMaggio truly believed the Kennedys killed Monroe to end some of her verbal transgressions. What Monroe said or learned from the Kennedys is up to dispute, but according to rumor, she told Frank Sinatra about some of the CIA’s dealings in Cuba and their actions against organized crime. Her loose lips may have spelt the end for her.

YES.

... although that was about Mars rather than the Moon ?

Besides, as I remember the storyline, wasn't the 'fake' version of coverage cobbled together to cover for failings that came out of the original efforts to produce a genuine Mars landing ? That's a bit different from just faking the whole thing from scratch.

If you like silent horror flicks, you can get some off google as a lot are public domain. Seems a few companies didn't think ahead and renew copyrights. The biggest blunder of them all: The Phantom of the Opera" (1925) starring Lon Chaney (His son played the Wolfman His real name was Creighton Chaney. Changed it to Lon Jr under studio pressure). Universal didn't renew the copyright when they are the studio that created all those old B&W, 30s-40s monsters and movies. Same with "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (like 1923) also starring Lon Chaney. "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet of Dr Caligari" are a couple more.

**Your not the only one...no..not a sin..

~ "The offspring of famous musicians often have a hard time creating a career for themselves, yet Hank Williams, Jr. is one of the few to develop a career that is not only successful, but markedly different from his legendary father.

Originally, Hank Jr. simply copied and played his father's music, but as he grew older, he began to carve out his own niche and it was one that owed as much to country-rock as it did to honky tonk.

In the late '70s, he retooled his image to appeal both to outlaw country fans and rowdy Southern rockers, and his makeover worked, resulting in a string of Top Ten singles -- including the number one hits "Texas Women," "Dixie on My Mind," "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)," "Honky Tonkin'," and "Born to Boogie" ~

Well - that depends.

The original reads something like "This (the stuff contained herein) is the Song of Songs....which is Solomon's"

So - it's like saying "This whole collection is THE song of all time. And it's written by Solomon"

I just crossed THAT song off my list.

I'd say he just doesn't want to play them, not that he can't. A few of is Beatles tunes would pop up over the years. He had some on Wings over America, a double album from their tour of the same name. For the most part it seems he left the Beatles behind unless requested.

Lennon and Harrison were the ones that tried to keep it "deep".

What they play on the radio nowadays and call it country is a farce, IMO. I don't listen to it, I just can't stand it. It sounds far more like pop than country, and it all sounds the same. I call it COOKIE CUTTER COUNTRY... :laugh:

I'll tell ya, if it wasn't for Spotify I'd have a hard time finding music I like to listen to, but Spotify is WAAAAAY good at finding it. I've had my Spotify Premium for a couple years now so it's really dialed in to what I like, through the skips and likes and dislikes, every Monday Spot gives me a list of NEW music picked just for me, like 40 songs or so. Some weeks picks are better than others but on average, they find some GREAT stuff I would NEVER have heard if not for them. Just can't beat it for $10 a month. I've only stumped them a couple times looking for a song that they didn't have.

"Pop country?" I don't think that term was even around back in those days, Gunny, unless you just mean it was the "top of the charts."

Just a technicality, but both George Jones and Patsy Cline were "pop" country of their day. They only became "old country" when they got older and the music changed. What we prefer in music is usually from our "heydays", respectively.

I consider most things after Garth and Shania went rock-pop to be pop music. Some of it is still good. Just have to pick and choose.
Toby Keith does something good about once every five years. This new brand of country, whatever you call it, is absolute shit. I have words for it I will not use right now .

"Pop country?" I don't think that terM was even around back in those days, Gunny, unless you just mean it was the "top of the charts."

Some Garth is good. I dig his song, "And The Thunder Rolls." Shania, she's a little Canadian harlot... :laugh:Sure it was. "Pop" = popular. And that is exactly what I mean. What was popular at the time - what was on the charts. I don't know when they came out with the term "pop" for anything. Country was just country (even though I grew up on bluegrass and Texas swing), and rock and pop were the same. Then there was soft rock and hard rock. Now there's like a genre for each person on Earth.

I'm right with ya there, man. I remember the first time I heard a "country song" with RAP in it. I hadn't listened to much of it for quite awhile, but after that I was done completely. Just because they wear a cowboy hat and sing with a twang does NOT make country music. It makes POP music sang by some little generic, cookie cutter wannabe southerner. I think it sucks to high heaven. I'd rather listen to PINK.

The term pop has changed its meaning methinks.

Double fluff. And I am being nice.I don't really even remember where I got it from. It's actually okay music to me. I'm more of a Beatles fan than any of their individual work. Paul McCartney stayed on the charts for awhile throughout the 70s and into the early 80s. I had friends or I should say acquaintances who would get stoned and go to blows over who broke up the Beatles and which one was best. Dorks :laugh:

Everyone except Yoko and Linda McCartney likes the Beatles better than their solo work. :laugh:

I get ya there, I just never heard country called pop before.

Far as I ever knew "pop" was for the teenies, as in "pop culture."

You know, like American Bandstand stuff. Remember that crazy show?

"I GIVE IT A TEN, IT HAD A GOOD BEAT AND IT WAS EASY TO DANCE TO"... :laugh:

I like Lennon better than the cute one. Even though his politocs sucked and his second wife was crazy as fuck. I always thought showing Cynthia and Yoko in one of those "This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs" would have been quite effective. :laugh:
