^ I know. There's loads of them kind of people, trying to create a personality that just isn't them. If you don't like a band, then don't pretend to like them. Be true to yourself and stop looking like an idiot when a conversation about a drummer called Ringo comes up and you're sat their like a right muppet because you're wearing a top that says The Beatles on it (and you claimed about an hour ago that you love them), and you have to ask who he is. This did actually happen.

You don't have to know everything about a band to know you love them. I love the Four Seasons, but I can only name Frankie Valli. It doesn't make me a poser or whatever for not being able to name them all, because I don't need to know that to love their music. 

The point I was making wasn't that she didn't know the drummer in the Beatles when she'd said she was a fan - it's that she said she was a fan because she thought it made her look cool when, in fact, she wasn't a fan at all. I like... the band Love. I can only name two of them but I like a lot of what I've heard of theirs (and I bought 'Forever Changes' yesterday - brilliant), so that's okay. I'm a casual fan but I don't know a lot about them. No problem. Being fake, though, is saying you're a fan of 'Love' when you're not. As in, never listened to anything of theirs - not. That was what I was saying.


Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I'm on vacation right now in New Orleans. I have apparently made an unofficial mission to find Beatle stuff here.

In Jackson Square somebody drew a John Lennon picture. 

A record store in the quarters (French Quarters) was full of Beatle stuff. It surprised me cause New Orleans is inner city, plus its know for its rap, cajun, & jazz music. But I guess since it was in the quarters it make a little more sense, you know tourist. To bad the stuff was expensive. I can buy a lot of it online for half the price or used at my local record store.

We got lost trying to find a movie theater in a suburb of New Orleans. This theater plays non educational imax movies. New Orleans has an imax, but it plays education films. While driving I was listening to an oldies station & P.S. I Love You came on. The frustration I had trying to find where I was going subsided for a bit. 

We found this hippy shop on Canal St. & of course what do they have? Beatles stuff!

I think the problem here is that the both of you have a slightly different definition of the word ''fan''.


I like to break it down like this

Hardcore- You know almost everything about the band!

Big fan - You know more than the casual, but not as much as the hardcore.

Casual -You know a little about the band. This is what I normally find in everyday people on the street deal. They know a few things, but still get confused or don't know a whole lot.

Not a fan at all

I don't mind if someone is a casual fan wearing a shirt cause at least they're a fan, but for some reason it irks me when a person just wears a band shirt or movie shirt just for the sake of wearing the shirt. Whether it be because its cool or the design.

My local newspaper had an article about something that happens in Nijverdal, which is a small village close to my city. Apparently they do a show which has to do with nostalgia each year and this year it has something to do with the Beatles. A band plays their music kind of play is being performed I guess. It's cool because they're turning the whole town around into a Beatlescity, with a streetnamething that says Abbey Road at one of the zebra crossings (I believe that's the only one in the whole town) and a gravestone with Eleanor Rigby on it and all.

I have the article so I might post it and translate it, as I don't really get what they're up to and what that play exactly is.

Yesterday my husband found a crow out front of our house that had died.  There is a power line right about where the bird was, so we think it must have been electrocuted.  He didn't want to just throw it away, so instead he put on some gloves, and buried him in our backyard.  As he did this, he played "Blackbird" on his iPod.  heart  I love that man (I also really love crows).  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Yesterday I was at the shops, and a customer went to the till. "Moring John," he said. My ears did a double take when the guy at the till replied,"'Ello, Paul," a-hard-days-night-john-3a-hard-days-night-paul-5
