I've been a fan for 30 years, but mostly of his Beatle days. . .sorta check.
I don't have a clue to any Platic Ono stuff. . .uh-oh.
I'm not shy. . .depending upon what you want me to do in front of said camera, that is.
I can't sing worth a darn. . .yikes.

Well, looks like I hardly qualify.

Shoot, looks like I'm not going anywhere.

Stupid age discrimination!! Seriously, no offense to the people who were lucky enough to be alive when the Beatles were around, but I get a little offended when people assume that I am some sort of lesser Beatles fan just because I'm so young. Wouldn't it be a better tribute to John if it showed that his music has affected not only those alive when it came out, but also people who weren't even born yet when he passed away?

ok, all you non-UK beatles fans. here's the email response i got:

Hi Carla
Thank you so much for your interest in our John Lennon project! * Candice Brietz will be shooting a film of fans performing the Plastic Ono Band album from start to finish to be shown*at BALTIC (an International Contemporary Arts Centre in the UK). The filming will take place in Newcastle in the UK and unfortunately we don't have the budget to bring fans from overseas. I'm really sorry! But I would be delighted to keep you updated about the project if you are interested.
Warmest wishes
Katharine

p.s. of course i responded to her offer for project updates! and yes, she spelled my name correctly.

Well, it's too bad they didn't specify that in their ad!

...Shall we bust them for false advertising?
