For John’s birthday on Wednesday, I brought in a huge card and got a bunch of people to sign it:

I just got called 'Sissum Slime' by my sister and I don't know how to feel about this nicknomer a-hard-days-night-paul-7  

Update: I've been upgraded to 'Electric Sissum Slime' (after my sister's recent obsession with liberally overusing the phrase 'electric slime' for everything). I can't say I'm particularly opposed to this nickname. ahdn_george_06

This makes me angry. The Lennon Wall in Prague can only be used by professional artists now. Glad I got to write on it once in my life.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I wonder what makes one qualify as a professional artist. I'd love to hear their criteria. 

Also, and this goes without saying, The Beatles were and are universal. This is like saying that non artists aren't capable of appreciating their work.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canuckians! john-lennon-salute_gifapple01 Funnily enough, one of the speeches I listened to in public speaking today invoked Thanksgiving. a-hard-days-night-george-9 (I can't wait for American Thanksgiving, it's pretty much my favorite holiday heart)

While i agree that what they're doing is wrong, i can't blame them for doing it. If 2 people were able to completely spray the wall white except for the phrase "Wall is over", what's to stop someone from spray painting "Violence is good, peace is bad" or some other degrading comment on the wall that's 100% contradictory of John's philosophy.

Bit stupid, surely making a Lennon Wall "professional artists only" defeats the entire purpose of a Lennon Wall?

The wall does look a mess much of the time though:

Tourists-writing-on-the-Lennon-Wall-in-summer-2019.-via-Raymond-Johnston.jpgImage Enlarger

Which must be annoying when you commission pieces of artwork you expect to last a while but are often unrecognisable in days. And the article does say that a small part of the wall will be reserved for fans messages, etc., so you'll probably still be able to sign Prague's Lennon Wall, @Ahhh Girl, if you get to make it back there.

Jesus she needs to get checked for scoliosis there. If she were leaning any further back she'd be on the floor.

With her totally not doctored naturally slim figure and her bountiful rack, would she give me the name of her surgeon?
