Fan letter to Ringo.
Hi, how are you? I am good. You are my favorite Beatle (seriously!). This is due to a number of reasons, but mostly because of the fact that you were the first drummer to ever play on a drum rise. You didn't write any of the songs and you were the funniest-looking guy in the band, but you made sure that everyone in the audience could see you. I think that is awesome.
Have you seen that Cirq Du Soleil (sp?) is doing one of their screwed-up artmime trapeze dance shows to Beatles songs? Is it stupid? I bet it's stupid. Do Paul and Yoko tell you about these things when they sign off on them? They really ought to let you have a say in what goes on... That's just my opinion. I hope you at least get royalties if people use Octopus' Garden in commercials or whatever.
Anyway, I hope this letter finds you well. Please don't die before Paul. You know how Tommy Ramone is the last living Ramone for some reason? It would be completely rad if you were the last living Beatle, so please stay alive as long as you are able to. Or just longer than Paul... After that, do what you have to do.
P.S.-- Thomas the Tank Engine was fucked up, and I am still not okay with it. Don't tell me it's because I am not British because that is a cop out and you know it.
