Introductions and all that stuff aren’t really my thing but i’ll try to make a good one. I live in Brussels and i’m a art lover. I like all kind of music, to kpop from harry styles, the beatles and even old disney song. I love history ( esp WW 2 idk why ), tv shows ( skam skam skaaaam lmao ) and books, my fav is the legendary Harry Potter ! I also like writing, a lot actually, that’s why i would like to write letter, send small things and all to my penpal buddy if we get along well. I think i have nothing to add except that i’m looking for someone who is open minded ( VERY ) ! Oh and i’m talking french and english but i would like to learn more languages.

I had an idea about the upcoming anniversary of the day John met Paul.
I want to celebrate the most important day in music history with an online festival about John & Paul.
It’ll begin next week until 6th July. During this month you are all invited to take part at the Mclennon Festival, an online festival in which you can:
1) take part at games and quizzes about John & Paul and win t-shirts, books, stickers and cards.
2) watch a documentary about John & Paul every week.
3) share your passion for John and Paul as much as you like: if you’re good with Photoshop you can make edits or gifs. If you’re good at drawing you can make a fanart. You can even cosplay. Or you can simply share your experience writing a post in which you explain how their music influenced your life and why you love them. You can make a video, or simply post a selfie with something (a t-shirt, a cd, a poster) about John and Paul. It’s up to you, it’s your choice to let the world know why and how you love John and Paul. There’ll be also a fan wall in which we’ll share all the pictures you’ll post about them.
1 - Have fun. That’s the only rule I can give you. I decided to make this online festival to gather all the fans who sincerely love Lennon&McCartney music and want to remember and celebrate the most important day in music history. You don’t have to make extraordinary things to join in. What is important is that you have fun.
2 - As I mentioned before, there will be various games and quizzes with prizes. You can win the book ‘The day John met Paul’ by Jim O’ Donnell by taking part at an online questionnaire with 15 questions about John and Paul. There will be a fanfic contest, the best fanfic wins cards and stickers of John and Paul. There will be a music contest in which you can share your talent singing a Lennon/McCartney song, video or audio, and the most voted wins a t-shirt of John and Paul.
So, basically, since I won’t be able to go to Liverpool on 6th July to celebrate the anniversary I thought that maybe there are other people like me on this website who would like to make something funny and creative to celebrate this important day. I proposed this idea to Joana @mclennonbook who agreed with me since the start, supported my crazy idea, we’re planning everything together.
until you’ve listened to golden slumbers
in the dark
in an equally dark melancholy state of mind
until you’ve let paul mccartney’s love filled voice ring through your room at 2AM
until you’ve heard what is considered his best moment in his entire discography
until you’ve felt the love
and the pain
and the sadness
that you can SEE radiating off him
you haven’t lived
and you haven’t really found peace
that’s what i think
The following is a fan story, relayed via a letter, of two girls who met George at Kinfauns:
“[T]he letter-writer’s pen pal went to visit… dare I gasp it… GEORGE! And away we go. ‘I have this pen pal who lives in Herts, England and to make a long story short, she and her friend (both Beatle lovers) went to Surrey (aaah… just the sound of the place there he B-r-e-a-t-h-e-s!) for the day to see if they could find J.G. and R’s homes. Well, neither John or Ringo were home. However, they did manage to see Zak with his nanny. ‘So on they walked to Esher (EEEK! They’re closer!) They had a hard time finding the place, but suddenly there it was. A huge wall! It was George’s home, and the electric gate was OPEN! ‘They tried peeking around and saw HIMw walking around near the window. (Oh, that sweet bouncin’ walk.) Anywindow, they waited around outside and this man (Indian) came out in a car. He said that George had bought some Persien (spelling) rugs from him and he showed them the signed check! ‘After he left, Pattie came racing out (in a car). They realized that this was their chance to talk to him without anyone around. So they walked in and went toward the door. (They had made him a cat and mouse out of black felt and wanted him to have them.) ‘As they neared the door, they saw him scowl at them. Suddenly, before they kocked, the door burst open and THERE HE WAS! (OH DIE!) ‘He wasn’t mad at all. He was larfing and grinning all over the place. His hair was very long and dark and sort of fluffy. He had on white pants and a blue-and-white striped shirt. The shirt was all open at the neck and his adams-apple was sooo sexy. ‘I’ll try and relate the conversation which followed… G.- ‘We’ve got something for you!’ George- ‘What’s this? Let’s see.’ K.- ‘It’s a cat, but we forgot its tail.’ At this point, G. smelled something coming from the house and asked if George had been using Dettol. George - ‘Yeah, the cat’s been _______ all over the carpet again.’ (No, he didn’t say what you’re thinking.) All of them laughed and then they asked for his autograph. When he said ‘sure, luvs,’ they asked for an autograph for me, too. ‘They talked a bit more and then left. They sent me the autograph and some gravel and leaves from his house. I think I must have been in shock for hours! I’m surprised the neighbors didn’t think I was being murdered the way I as spazing around the house!’ Well, I can’t say I blame her for spazing around. I’m afraid to even think of what I’d do if I received something like that in the mail. (In other words, re-get out the Dettol, whatever that is.).” - Shirley Poston in her column “For Girls Only,” KRLA Beat, 14 January 1967
