Glad you found us. To carry on with the analogy in the previous few posts, we have some roads that are paved very quickly. "History of Yoko Screaming" has 72 posts in under 72 hours.

Looking forward to seeing your ideas on the forum as the road unfolds before us.

Hi all, I'm Holly, 21. I just joined this forum and I haven't been on a beatles forum in quite some years (since I was mere teen). So I'm a bit rusty at all this since I've moved to tumblr. But I'm currently a film major in college at Columbia College which is in chicago. I study directing and screenwriting and I hope to move out to L.A. within the next couple of years (fingers crossed!) and George Harrison is my favorite Beatle with John Lennon coming in a close second, but I love them all equally. I've been a fan since I was 13 and had a massive crush on George Harrison whilst growing up so I have a bit of (bit? more like a huge) a soft spot for him. Also I love writing and reading and films and especially old classic films, and I've recently gotten super in television & loved shows such as Breaking Bad, Mad Men, etc. I used to play the Oboe for about 10 years but stopped after I graduated high school and pursued other interests. So yes I can read music even though it's been a long time haha. So I've always been strongly interested in music and The Beatles were a major influence on me and are a major part of my life and who I am. So yeah, if you ever want to chat or follow me on tumblr just let me know! <3

Hi Holly (beatlewife), I hope you check out the topic I posted a while back:  Question for the Young Beatles Fans Here

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..fans-here/

My main question there wonders, what are the exact mechanisms by which a person who is, say 21 now (meaning they were born in the early 1990s), would become a fan of a band that ended its career in 1969?  This amazing unique phenomenon still hasn't been fully explained to my satisfaction.  Sure, we can say "it's because of the great music".  But somehow that doesn't explain the very unusual fact -- especially when we factor in how ruthlessly fashion-conscious young people are, and the powerful incentives of peer pressure and being "cool" often translating as being au courant.  It would be like coming across thousands of kids today all emulating and cultivating Jimmy Dean, or something.  Sure, there may be a few dozen doing that, but nowhere near the numbers who are into the Beatles.

Welcome to the forum! I don't affiliate myself with any particular Beatle, but you'll have some other George fans to talk to, I know.

Hullo fellow fab four fanatics! I joined this forum because of my rather recent addiction to the Beatles. It all started a couple months ago, and before that I only listened to classical music. Since then I've bought sixteen albums and seen their movies, interviews, etc.

I'm sixteen and what's really sad is the kind of music my peers listen to. None of my friends like the Beatles. Boy are they missing out… I'm beginning to drive some of them mad with my constant references, so hopefully this forum will satisfy my need to discuss the best band to ever exist with people who feel similarly. I think the people here are real gear.

 

P.S. I love you

P.S. We Love You To. You have made it to your Nirvana, your heaven, your Beatles-place-on-Earth. With a cool name like yours, we hope to see you posting all around the forum.

Funny Paper started a thread that is trying to get in to the head of people just like you. I would love to see your response to his question. The most recent iteration of the question is just a few posts above yours.

Welcome to the site. I imagine you'll like it here :D We're the same age so I get what you mean about most other people our kind of age. Still, you've seen the light and that's all you need to worry about!

By the way, love the username!

Hello all! I'm a longtime Beatles fan from America, and I've been lurking about the site for a few days. I'm part of that demographic bridging the gap between the older fans and the younger generation of fans – halfway to 64 to be exact. I'm an ecclectic quasi-hipster nerd with too many interests to rattle off in an introductory post. I enjoy art, movies, comics, gaming of every variety, and interesting music of any genre (a lot of which came out before I was born, ie Can, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, etc). I chose my username because I happened to be listening to Magical Mystery Tour at the time and I hoped it would be somewhat clever and even more somewhat not in use. :)

 

In lieu of too many boring personal details, I'll rattle off some obligatory Fab Four statistics to get started.

Favorite beatle: John

Favorite album: Varies, but usually Abbey Road or Sgt. Pepper's depending on my mood (and I totally <3 Past Masters vol 2)

Favorite song: Varies even more, but I never get tired of "A Day In The Life". Pure perfection.

Favorite album cover: Revolver

Really dig the site, and the forums look like a great place too! heart
