I read this and I found it hillarious!!

 

http://www.darkhorizons.com/ne.....ark-waters

 

Mark Waters ("Mr. Popper's Penguins")
is in negotiations to direct the Beatles-themed comedy "Get Back" for
Sidney Kimmel Entertainment reports Variety.

The story centers on the discovery of a time machine by two die-hard
Beatles fans, who travel back in time to prevent John Lennon from
meeting Yoko Ono, whom they blame for the break-up of the Fab Four.

Chris McCoy penned the script and shooting is aiming to begin late in
the Summer in London. Kimmer, Waters, Matt Berenson and Jessica
Tuchinsky will produce.

That ought to be interesting, mith - nice find.

If I had a time machine, I would have prevented the event of 12/08/80 instead. Yoko made John far too happy for me to have prevented them from meeting.

Personally, I would have stopped the events of 12/31/99, the George stabbing

John's songs inspired by Yoko were far better than anything else he wrote after meeting her. They'd have broken up anyway, and John would have written a load of awful songs and died of alcohol poisoning in the mid-1970s. Probably.

I'd get four people in on it and take three back in time with me. I'd have one of them distract Yoko as John was getting into his limousine, and convince him to travel forward in time to the present day with one of my companions, with myself sufficiently disguised as John to fool Yoko. He'd be cloned, and the clone would be force grown for forty years, before being shot in the same places as John, and brought back to 1980 and placed in the back of an ambulance, with my other two companions acting as paramedics. I'd be shot by Chapman as I left the Dakota, placed in the ambulance, and switched with the clone for the autopsy. We'd then return to the future, and hopefully I could be treated for my wounds.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Time travel is complex. If I just beat Chapman up or something, then I wouldn't know that I had to travel back in time to save John. The world must think that Lennon was assassinated, or it falls apart.
It would be much easier if there was no autopsy, I'd just need to switch with John, there'd be no need for a clone. Actually, it would need to be someone of the same height and build as Lennon to fool Yoko, so if I don't reach 5'10 or put on weight before discovering the time machine, I'd need someone else to do it. But yeah.

What if someone went back in time to prevent John and Paul from meeting? Like someone distracted Paul from going to St. Peter's Church.

 

The world would collapse into itself.

Again, that's a paradox. If you kill Chapman, you'll grow up knowing that a lunatic killed a poor bystander because he thought the man would kill John Lennon, or possibly not even that if you did it discreetly (let's face it, a murder of some nobody in New York wouldn't be news thirty years in the future, because nobodies are constantly killed in New York). You then wouldn't bother going back in time to "save" John, so Chapman would shoot him anyway. Besides, Chapman doesn't deserve to die, and I couldn't kill him anyway, especially before he killed Lennon.
Unless the world thinks that Lennon was assassinated up to the moment you travel in time, you are doomed to failure.

Ohman, I had to read that 4 or 5 times before I could even get a grasp on your idea.  Anyways, I think I'd rather travel back in time to keep John with May Pang.  It seems like there could have been a Beatles reunion if they stayed together, with John visiting Paul and all.  Maybe I could also try to convince Chapman's wife to get him to a mental institution since I was in that time period.  I'm pretty sure I read that she at least knew about his plan.

Woah, that just completely made my brain hurt seriously.

 

If I could time travel I'd just go back to the first half of '65 and try and catch some of the Help! taping sessions of the songs to hear some of my favorites done raw.

Just knock Chapman over as you're getting back into the time machine. 😀

If I could go back in time, all I’d want would be a one night stand with Paul. There, I said it. Preferably a song written about me, too, but let’s not be hasty.

I promise I’m not a trashy skank in real life.

Wanting a one night stand with Paul, or John or Ringo or George is not being a trashy skank. It's having magnificent taste. a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

BTW After checking the answers… I'm not reading that message from Walrus until  I have a good night sleep. I can't deal with time travel tonight.a-hard-days-night-paul-4
