I like Nirvana and I actually have a Nirvana shirt, but I don't really know anything about the members (except for Kurt and Dave) but I do know them all by name. I like their music though and that's enough for me. I don't feel like I should know their full biographies in order to be able to wear a shirt by their band.

However, the music part is crucial to me. I would feel so stupid if someone would come up to me and asked what my favourite Beatles album was and I wouldn't be able to mention one. Why brag about what a big fan you are if you actually don't know anything? It's not impressive and doesn't make you more interesting. I've always found it ridiculous.

Thank you, my two dogs are Ringo and Layla

No, but I toyed with naming our new feline pet 'McCatney' (quickly voted down by non-appreciative members of the family)

I would prefer a dog over a cat in the house, well that's for me.

Today I saw someone reading a book, the author was "Jay Asher" and for a second there I thought Jane Asher wrote a book.

The lone elephant in my country was a topic of Paul's, he was asking the president to send the elephant to a sanctuary in Thailand. The zoo officials were urging him to see the elephant himself (yes please, and a concert to add to that ahdn_paul_01), this got featured in the television news, often mentioning him as an ex-Beatle, no mention of his solo career whatsoever.

On the newspaper there was a section, saying that "John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr were members of the Beatles". Surely they should have added Stu and Pete? The last paragraph ended saying that Paul McCartney had a well-received solo career.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Aside from all her cookbooks, she has actually written three best-selling novels: The Longing, The Question and Losing It. So don't be surprised if you do see a book with her name on the cover!

^ 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.

Be grateful she was a proper Stones fan and not a poser a-hard-days-night-john-7 

The amount of people in my school who wear t-shirts with the Stones logo on it is ridiculous and they aren't fans *sigh*. Great thing to ask them is "What's your favourite Stones album?" The look on their faces mwahahaha.

How do you know they're not fans, you have to ask everybody wearing a band shirt about that band? So what if they can't name a favorite album? What do you get out of finding out that someone's a "poser"? I don't even think you need to know all the albums of an artist or band to be a big fan (I'm a pretty big Dino fan but I only have compilations, can't name one of his albums). Are you so much superior to other people that you can say somebody is not a fan of a band they say they are a fan of? And even if they aren't a fan, they just like the shirt or want to feel cool for wearing a shirt for that band, who cares?

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.

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

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!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8this

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.

That's a good breakdown, Sky. The particular person I was talking about fits in the bottom category, which is why I brought it/her up.

Enjoy your vay-cay, Sky!! :)

My Beatley moment came yesterday.  In the car with my 11 year old son, listening to Beatles, of course.  He asked me who the lead singer of the Beatles was?  I explained that they all sang lead, but mostly John & Paul.  Every new song, he'd say "Whose singing this one, Mom?!"  It was great.  He's really getting into them.  He LOVES "I Am The Walrus" even tho he says he "doesn't get what it means"! LOL

I am so jealous - one of our best vacations ever was in NOLA. Have a great time!

I do remember browsing through a few used record stores in the FQ. That was the first place I remember seeing a Gary Burghoff record.

Thanks :)

Glad you enjoyed it here. 

The store I went to was this big two story store called Peaches Records off Decatur. Most of the records were new although there were some used, unfortunately none of them were Beatles. I was in heaven with so much Beatles stuff, even if I couldn't buy it. 

                                   

                                   
 one secetion of vinyl 

 another section             

                                     

There was a cd section, but I didn't look at it.

 

This is from Jackson Square

I would've taken picture at the hippy store, but it was so small & crowded, but it was pretty awesome.

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 while..eh..some 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

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

I went to a psychic about twenty years ago (really didn't want to, my mom made me go). The lady told me my spirit guide was named John, and I thought it was a friend of mine who had died. Then, she said I had another spirit guide named White Feather. She told me to go in my back yard and I would find a white feather. I went, and I found one. I never gave any of this a thought till I read a couple of books about John recently. They both mentioned that John had a pact with Julian that if something happened to him and he died, he'd contact Julian with a white feather. Now it all makes sense to me. (I think Julian had a band or something at one point called White Feather). Anyway, I am in love with Paul, but I have an absolute obsession about getting to know everything I can about John. He fascinates me. I am hoping that is coming from Mr. Lennon on the other side! Now, if he could only help me on the riffs in Norwegian Wood!

I don't know about that being from John ''from the other side'' but it's definitely a little strange. A simple coincidence, perhaps?

The White Feather Foundation is a charity set up by Julian:

whose mission "embraces environmental and humanitarian issues and in conjunction with partners from around the world helps to raise funds for the betterment of all life, and to honour those who have truly made a difference."
