Thanks, TheOneBeatleManiac, for adding your introduction to this thread. It's nice to have all this info in one place to be able to skim back through it.

So true, Ahhh Girl! (funny username a-hard-days-night-john-2, I like it! a-hard-days-night-john-6)

I like to imagine that John smiled in approval when I chose it.

well, my avitar didn't come out right, its not showing the whole pic, i guess it had to be a certian size…oh well..

been a beatlefan since my teens in the 80s. in fact it was 1980, when i was 10 when i discovered them….BAD year to discover them, right, when one of them gets assasinated. I'm actualy a member on another forum letstalkbeatles.com.

i'm currently exploring your topics. i found yall by putting in Google about debates between the U.S. Capitol discography or the U.K.Parlophone discography. i go with the later, myself. too much reverb is overwhelming to my sensitive hearing.

ill disscuss more in the thread. 

anyrate, hola to all!

Glad you hopped into our happy conversations, derek. I'm hoping you will consider putting your introduction into the "introduction" thread at http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..ion-thread

Call me the obsessive, organized librarian of the group. I really like to see all the introduction together in a thread so I can browse back through them from time to time to refresh my memory on who's who.

Again, welcome ahdn_george_08

 

Sorry bout that, i was actualy looking for some kind of "intro" part of the board but couldnt findone. i posted here because i saw i another where someone lese introduced themselves so i thought this prt must be the place. sorry for the confusion.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8No problem whatsoever. I remember being new in the neighborhood. Hope you'll stick around and learn your way around our broad streets (such as the impossible to derail thread) and some of our quieter country lanes. Some of our roads are long and winding and some of them are short lanes.

What's really nice, is that if you start a conversation that has been discussed before, one of our moderators can move the comments to the earlier thread. So, don't be gun-shy about starting up a conversation.

Welcome.  Looks like we are the same age.

I am two years your senior. But, both of you have a HUGE headstart over me on Beatle fandom. Glad we've all piled into this psychadelic minivan to share our love for The Beatles. Conversate.

That's such a nice way to put it apple01

 

Welcome new member! Very nice to have you here :D

(if you like, I could move your intro to the proper thead (assuming you haven't done it yourself, that is) – it's entirely up to you)

EDIT: On reflection, me and the other mods have just merged threads like this in the past, so I should do the same in this case. Again, welcome to the forum, derek apple01

Hey, wait a minute. I rethought this. derek, you may not call yourself old.  That would make me old. We're still young!!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10Let's call you a long-time fan. I know. I know. It means the same thing, but it sounds so much nicer. a-hard-days-night-george-10

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.
