Wow, @Ron Nasty , I didn’t know how much you had to say.

 

1. I’d much rather see Carnival Of Light get released than Let It Be get a DVD release because with Let It Be , you wouldn’t be missing much just getting the VHS. Although it isn’t that common, Me and my friend/coworker have seen it a couple of times when we were buying up stuff at flea markets/yard sales/thrift stores/stores for our boss to resell them at a higher price (you may think of it as illegal or wrong, but I think of it as bringing valuable items to a place where people can expect to see them and therefore go out of their way to look for them and make it easier for them to find).

2. As right as you are with that person born in 1926, you ever thought she bought them to watch with her children.

3. So you’d sort out generations something like this:

(_-1957) 1st gen

(1958-1964) 1.5th gen A

(1965-1970) 1.5th gen B

(1971-_) 2nd gen

4. Great to see another person born in 1967, the same year I was born in.

That all made perfect sense (for the most part).  

 

That’s not quite what he wrote. He wrote that anyone born up to 1960 could be 1st gen. Those born in the 60’s are 1.5a and 1.5b according to Ron. You and Ron would be 1.5b according to his system.

According to me, and the book I read, you’re both 2nd gen.

When you’re 8 years old you’re not a film critic.  

I know that. For example, when I was 11 I watched The Star Wars Holiday Special on TV and liked it. Nowadays, that film is considered abysmal.

@Expert Textpert 

What is the name of your magical mystery source you constantly cite, it might be worth a read. Also, Ron Nasty said around 1960, so what I said would be a realistic assumption of what he was thinking.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Beatleness, by Candy Leonard. I just figure a book on the subject is a better source than people who “wish they were 1st gen fans.” However, Ron’s viewpoint is well reasoned.

For a second there I thought that this was your book. Thanks for being honest about why you like. But I wonder, what’s wrong with my reasoning between 1st and 2nd gen fan.

Weren’t you the one who originally said Candy Leonard’s schema was invalid because The Beatles couldn’t be fans of themselves?

I personally think Candy missed out on some claims such as these (NOTE: These claims I am making are fake and are mere possibilities of what could’ve happened if she listened to people born before 1945 and after 1961):

“I was playing with my dolls when my mother put on her new Beatles record, which was Sgt. Pepper , I was like nothing I’ve heard before”

                                                                                                                                                                            Female, b. 1962

“I remember going to see them live and barely hearing what they were playing because everyone was screaming so loud”

                                                                                                                                                        Male, b. 1941

True, had she included those exceptional examples, it may have changed the meaning of the whole book, or even the entire Beatles experience.
