Well, she is a woman. What other kinds are there in SHiTeville?
2 kinds. Whores and Moms. Moms who bought us cereal with Monkees rekkids on the back. Moms who gave us all the Hostess Ding Dongs we could eat and all the Classic Coke we could drink. Moms who protected us from all the bad scary things in the world while Dads looked on in frustrated contempt. Moms who were our best friends. Moms who poisoned all of our future dealings with females.

My favorite track is the deadwax on either side. It’s a track called « And she remained silent ever after ». Can’t be beat.

Or maybe — just maybe — "I get it. I just don't like it." It happens.

It does, but given the wording of their post (which is solely aimed at Yoko over anyone else involved with the record), I believe that not only do they not get it, but I also believe they dislike the record for all the wrong reasons. If they said something along the lines of "I can understand what she was trying to do with her vocal style, but it's not my thing", then that would be all well and good, but their post came across to me as having undertones of various unpleasant kinds which immediately calls their opinion into question, as far as I'm concerned.
You mean like "I'll tell you why nobody likes her music — because she's a woman and she's Oriental!"* That kind of unpleasant? Au contraire — Stan sounds pretty thoughtful & reasonable in post #28. And he's definitely a fan, if not the Y.O. fanboy you seem to expect everyone else to be. Perhaps you could get off your high horse once in a while?

I will if you will, little man. Not counting on it, though.
Yeah, the fact that this idiot felt the need to don their superhero cape and spring to the defense of someone who proved themselves more than capable of defending their own posts - and clarified their stance well - was quite something.

So the story goes that John Lennon visited Apple's lawyers in New York concerning preparations for a court case against the Producers of Beatlemania . John said in a sworn affidavit that : "I and the three other former Beatles have plans to stage a reunion, to be recorded, filmed and marketed around the world." That same week the New York Police Department was approached by an unknown organization asking if it would be possible for the city to prepare a feasibility study for a Beatles Reunion concert in Central Park! So was this concert in the planning stages? Was it mere bravado on John's part? Would Yoko have been keen to see this happen? Were the Beatles at a good place collectively for this to take place? What songs would have been on the set list? Which Beatles songs and would any solo material have made the set list? Your thoughts?
Long as Yoko was around, a Beatle reunion would have never happened. Not in the 70's or the 80's or 90's had John been alive.
it makes one really fn' angry doesn't?...she truly took down the Beatles from within.
Why do the Beatads insist that Yoko gave a flying fuck whether John reunited with the Beatles or not, especially at that point in their dysfunctional, exhausted relationship? From all accounts, she was quite understandably fed up with and disgusted by him — just look at any photo of them together from the mid-1970s on; she looks like she is about to vomit every time he touches her. She actively avoided spending any time with him, and would have been more than happy, I am sure, if John piddling around with his erstwhile Beatle pals kept him out of the house and out of her presence.

Christ, that thread just keeps getting worse. Someone posts a movie with actors playing John and Paul, DK Pete thinks this is as good as being an actual documentary:
...not the greatest movie ever made to be sure, but there *is* a very telling moment in it towards the end which I also found very true to real life. It's when John and Paul are BOTH very excitedly about to run over to the SNL studio and make a shockingly surprise appearance. As Paul is about to walk out the door (at John and Yoko's apartment), guitar in hand, the phone rings and it's Yoko (who was away in Japan, I think). After John is through talking with her, his mood for SNL totally deflated of course, leaving Paul stunned and disappointed. As I said, NOT far from real life. It's been documented (IN real life)that during the May Pang period, John and Paul had met up on very good terms...during which time, John had told Paul he was interested in meeting up with him and Wings down in Nashville. In the interim, John and Yoko got back together. "John and Paul in Nashville"remained only in pre-planned documentation.
I think Yoko was very scared of John collaborating with Paul and the others as a group again in case he moved on from her. It was actually New Orleans and what became the 'Venus and Mars' sessions that John said he was going to visit to record with Paul; he sent a letter to the UK confirming he was going to visit the 'McCartneys'.
As you say, once John got back with Yoko, after she asked him to visit her for hypnosis to help cure his smoking, he never returned to May Pang again and as we know, he never did go to New Orleans to work with Wings.
The tell is John using the word divorce in describing the break-up. It is my opinion that Yoko viewed Paul as a rival. In her mind Paul had to be put away so she could really get her claws into John and form the new artistic partnership. I truly believe she is that sick. I also think she was the cause of all the bile John dished out on Paul which promoted the idea that McCartney was just a lightweight who was only good for blue-haired old ladies on easy listening radio.
no argument here! ; )
How much slashfic of John and Paul do you think the members of that forum have written in the last 50 years?
