personal opinion here, I don't like using digital fakery to make dead 
celebreties say things that they never said (movies that are clearly 
fiction are an exception to this)

In this case I think the quality of the audio splicing also leave a lot to 
be desired (but then again, I've never listened to recordings of Lennon 
talking, so it could be his real speech pattern)

the other videos on the blog are very interesting. I hadn't heard of this 
blog before, thanks for the pointer.
