    Film after film: Happy Birthday to John (dir. Jonas Mekas, 1995)

    Mekas, the leading experimental film diarist, released this film over two decades after the event that it presents: the 1972 exhibition of Ono and Lennon's artworks, curated (I think!) by Fluxus's George Maciunas at New York's Syracuse Museum of Art.

    One shot with George<3

    Being the wife of George Harrison was nice sometimes and bad other times. The press had recently thought of you to be dead but the truth was that you were just very pregnant with only two months left. The only two people who knew you were pregnant was you and George since you never got down to speak about it or when he had interviews the press would often ask if you really were dead or how you were doing. Him and his bandmates were making a film called "Get Back" which was very cool you thought so yourself George didn't.

    Well George's bandmates were your friends too. You just talked with them over the phone since you mostly didn't want to get out of bed but today you did. George was already gone to the studio when you woke up goaning you got up and felt a growing headache urghh you said while finding some loose clothes since your belly was already huge. Getting out of the bedroom you saw a note on the kitchen counter saying that there were pancakes in the fridge. You smiled at the note and looked in the fridge to get the pancakes and put them on the counter top while you made morning tea.

    When you were done you washed some dishes and headed out to go to the studio, you took the car and went your way. Doing the trick you made was to put on a very red lipstick, sunglasses and a scarf to go around your hair for some reason this worked and you got into the studio. At the counter a lady sat looking you up and down and then she said sorry this is not a place for lost fans like you. Oh you said taking off your scarf and lipstick.

    Can i please go see my husband now you asked her. She didn't answer and she just nodded her head as you walked down to the studio. A cameraman stood outside the studio seeing you. You walked past him to look for George. George? you asked out into the small room and with that a surprised Ringo stood in front of you.

    Wow y/n you're- when-

    Yes Ringo, I'm pregnant now can i please go see my husband?

    Y-yes was all ringo said

    And you walked past Ringo to see George with his guitar in hand. George! You yelled and ran to hug him.

    Hey darling he chuckled slightly. Everybody in the room was in shock to see you pregnant. Then John said I thought you had died. I guess you were just knocked up. Yes John now everybody knows gasp you joked. You went to go talk with linda.

    What everyone seems conveniently to have forgotten is that nobody much liked her predecessor, Linda McCartney, in the early days either. I have to declare an interest here. She once put her hands around my throat and tried to throttle me when, as a student journalist in the Seventies, I concluded an interview with the Great Man by asking why his wife had taken my notebook from me before we began and crossed out all the questions about John Lennon. She was prised off me by her husband who gave me a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale and answered all the questions by way of compensation. Even in those days, to maintain his niceness Paul needed a Mrs Nasty as his gatekeeper.

    #Linda not Yoko #Is there a general fandom take on this event? #Linda being overprotective because she knew how upset Paul secretly was about everythinhg? Or? #I just never heard of her being this extreme but maybe I'm just not informed at all. #It just really jumped out at me idk #paul mccartney#linda mccartney#john lennon

    The Beatles showing love through their eyes

    So in terms of showing love, I’m seeing a 50-75% success rate:

    John: soft, very cute, I feel the love coming from his eyes, let’s hug.

    Paul: quite soft, quite flirty. I feel the love, but will it last longer than a night, Paul?

    Ringo: I have no idea what Ringo is trying to convey here. I feel let down by the best actor of the group.

    George: I’m torn between whether this is a strong smoulder or extreme serial killer vibes. Into it though.

    Screenshot source  (Although I only looked for this because of Understanding Lennon/McCartney. And I believe the OG source of Paul’s quote is Many Years From Now).

    John Lennon: *Releases How Do You Sleep?*

    You live with straights who tell you, you was king

    Jump when your momma tell you anything

    The only thing you done was yesterday

    And since you've gone you're just another day

    Rock Critics: “Wow, Lennon eviscerates McCartney in this song!”

    “From the way Lennon angrily spits out the lyrics and name checks McCartney’s songs, there’s no mistaking the meaning behind these venomous lyrics!!”

    Also John Lennon: *Releases I Know I Know*

    Today I love you more than yesterday

    Right now I love you more right now

    And I know what's coming down

    I can feel where it's coming from

    And I know it's getting better (all the time)

    As we share in each other's minds

    Rock Critics: “Wow, this is an honest apology song that must be about Yoko”.

    “It’s funny that given what a genius, honest, lyricist Lennon is that coincidentally he slipped in some references to Beatles songs that all happen to be Lennon/McCartney compositions, including Yesterday, In My Life, Getting Better and the riff at the beginning of the song is oddly reminiscent of I’ve Got a Feeling...”

    “But we know for a fact that this song can’t have anything to do with Paul McCartney because it’s not angry and all John’s heartfelt emotional songs are about Yoko, so case closed on that!”

    Meanwhile...

    Paul McCartney: *sighs*

    Rock Critics: “Well this sigh is clearly about Lennon, you can tell from the timbre of his voice.”

    “In terms of the sigh itself, it isn’t offensive but it lacks the counterpoint that someone like a Lennon could have added, maybe an acerbic yawn or a witty groan could have added an air of authenticity to this sigh, which is otherwise pretty lightweight”.

    “But hey, this sigh will be popular with the grannies!”

    #the beatles#john lennon#paul mccartney #john and paul #rock critics #how do you sleep #i know i know #song lyrics #john couldn’t have made it more obvious #i don’t get how people have examined John’s life to the nth degree and still think i know i know is about yoko #what is not clicking #the song dialogue went both sides #rant over#for now#thoughts

    On June 22, 1957 there was a street party in Liverpool. There was a live band that was making their first public appearance. The band was called "The Quarrymen". The following is from the Beatles' Bible about the day:

    The Quarrymen played twice that day. In the afternoon they performed in the back of a stopped coal truck, and that night they participated in a street party, both on Rosebery Street in Liverpool.

    Our first appearance was on Rosebery Street, it was their Empire Day celebrations. "They had a street party. We played from the back of a truck. They didn't pay us. We played boys parties after that; maybe we got some shillings, but mostly we just played for fun. I didn't care that they didn't pay him. ". John Lennon, 1967

    Anthology.

    The celebrations were for the 750th anniversary of King John of Liverpool granting Liverpool a Royal Statute, "inviting the settlers to take burgas or building plots in Liverpool, and promising them all the privileges enjoyed by the districts. free at sea ".

    The event was organized by Mrs. Marjorie Roberts of 84 Rosebery Street. Her son Charles, a printer, was a friend of Colin Hanton and engraved the Quarrymen logo on Hanton's bass drum. Roberts Jr. suggested that the group perform at the party.

    Our drummer Colin Hanton wanted to write the band's name on the front of his kick drum. But there wasn't enough space to write it as one word along the circumference of the drum, so he staggered the name into two words at diagonal angles. And some have mistakenly cited old photographs of that patch as evidence that the name is split into two words. The stonemasons.

    The coal truck was owned by a resident of No. 76, who allowed the group to run a microphone wire through its front window.

    In the audience for the second show was John's mother, Julia, who brought her stepsisters Julia and her Jackie to see her. The girls sat in the back of the truck while Julia looked out of the Roberts family living room window.

    During the second set of Quarrymen, a group of local youth from nearby Hatherley Street threatened violence against the musicians, singling out Lennon in particular. The group ran to Ms. Roberts's house as the crowd banged on Lennon's windows. In the end, a police officer warned them to leave and escorted the stonemasons to their bus stop.

    The Liverpool Post and Echo media company awarded Rosebery Street an award for the best decorated street outside of Liverpool city center. The neighbors held a second party to which the stonemasons were not invited.

    Today 64 years ago it started in Liverpool.
