Imagine a Lennon séance

By Geoff Boucher, Times Staff Writer

PRODUCERS of a 2003 pay-per-view special that tried to reach Princess Diana via séance are at it again — this time their moneymaking mystics will try to conjure up the spirit of John Lennon.

Paul Sharratt of Starcast Productions, interviewed in the British press, has defended his company's plans to deploy psychics and television cameras to the Capitol Records tower in Hollywood, the Dakota apartment building and Strawberry Fields memorial park in New York and other Lennon-centric sites in an attempt to reach the late Beatle in the afterlife.


"People say this is disgusting and I accept that criticism," Sharratt said of the April 24 live broadcast on In Demand. "But we're making a serious attempt to do something that many, many millions of people around the world think is possible…. Lennon was very interested in the spiritual world. It's a natural follow-up to the Diana séance."

Lennon himself apparently was open to the idea of communing with the souls of the departed; a Newsweek article published shortly after his death in 1980 noted that the rock icon and his wife, Yoko Ono, had staged a séance at their residence in the Dakota. But Elliot Mintz, Ono's longtime spokesman, told Reuters recently that the show is purely exploitative and crass.

How would you set something like this up in order to not have people think that it was staged? The TV aspect does take away from the value of what could be a remarkable experience.

Well, if they're out to make money off of this (I'd be surprised if they weren't), now's the time to do it.
Wasn't "Alien Autopsy" aired during the time "The X-Files" was popular?
Hmmm......... :angry:

I'm leery of these psychics who go on television to "contact" dead icons. First off, if they are in fact in contact with these icons, who are they to tell the world all about the conversation thereof? Man-oh-man, these famous people spend their lives trying to keep some semblance of privacy in their lives. It's really dis-heartening to see them being exploited, still, in death.

Case in point: James Van Praagh and his latest stints on T.V. telling of his encounters with Princess Diana's spirit (which, frankly made me ill) as did his "conversation" with JFK Jr., etc. etc. What really got me, though, was when he was on T.V. purusing through a Marilyn Monroe exhibit with all sorts of amazing and "real" Marilyn Monroe collectibles. James Van Praagh supposedly contacted Marilyn while he was holding various items that she once "owned" and telling the world about Marilyn and her connections to the items.

Imagine everyone's surprise when the truth leaked out that many (if not most or even all) items in that exhibit were found to be fakes - including the hair curlers that Mr. Van Praagh used to "contact" Marilyn.

Not to say some of these psychics aren't psychic. But, I think things get a little out-of-hand when fame enters into some of these psychics lives.

I agree with the others here that anything related to psychics and T.V. has to be taken with a grain of salt. Too, I find it very disrespectful to, not only the dead star, but their family and friends, as well...to share all of this supposed information with the world.

Just my thoughts. :angry:

The latest news on this (and honestly, I'm always annoyed when folks like this try to contact some famous person who died tragically, for no other reason than to line their pockets, which is what all this strikes me as....)

The results of the Seance

http://ca.news.yahoo...-tv-seance.html

"Peace ... The Message is Peace."

That's what the producers of a pay-television seance to contact John Lennon claimed the former Beatle said when communicating with them from beyond the grave.

The show aired on Monday on pay-TV service In Demand and was organized by the producers of a failed 2003 attempt to channel the late Princess Diana's spirit, a show that earned scathing reviews but was estimated to have grossed close to $8 million.

People who paid $9.95 to watch the pay-per-view Lennon special from 9 p.m. (0100 GMT) to 10:30 p.m. (0230 GMT) saw audio crew members, a psychic and an expert in paranormal activity claim that the late Beatle's spirit made contact with them through what is described as an Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP).

The EVP was discovered during a taping of a seance at La Fortuna restaurant in New York, which Lennon frequented.

The show's organizers said psychic Joe Power's voice feed went dead for a few seconds and the message was found on it when the tape of the voice feed was played back.

EVP is based on a belief that spirit voices communicate through radio and TV broadcast signals.

On the television show, filming at La Fortuna suddenly stopped and a narrator said something odd has happened. Show participants said that a mysterious voice can be heard on Power's voice feed.

The producers called in "EVP specialist" Sandra Belanger to examine the voice and she proclaims it Lennon's.

Producer Paul Sharratt, who heads Starcast Productions and calls himself a skeptic, said hearing the voice has made him a believer.

The program was made without the knowledge or consent of Lennon's estate or his widow Yoko Ono, who declined comment.

Ono's long-time friend and spokesman Elliot Mintz has called the entire exercise "tacky, exploitative and far removed" from Lennon's way of life. "A pay-per-view seance was never his style," said Mintz.

Lennon was assassinated by a deranged fan in New York 25 years ago.

Heh...well, since ya had to pay to watch the seance, I'm going to assume you'd have to pay to hear just the EVP. I've no idea what this group's website is, if they have one. But since this whole thing, along with the Princess Diana thing, seems nothing more than a cash cow, I'm guessing you also have to pay membership to access the website.

Lennon has been active with trying to communicate since his death. You may want to read a book called "We Don't Die" and then you may change your mind about what he is able to do from the other side.

I’m also well aware of this book. It concerns psychic medium George Anderson (one of the most scientifically tested mediums on the planet), who reportedly on January 1st, 1981 established contact with the spirit of John Lennon. There is also a radio interview with George Anderson conducted by paranormal researcher and historian Joel Martin shortly after the event(s) took place. (I happen to have a copy of that broadcast...).

I know this is an old post, but I was just reading it for the first time. Sorry 'bout being late!

John Lennon was almost certain about life after death. I'd read somewhere that he had told his son Julian about his thoughts on the matter. He then told Julian that, after he died, he would try to send a message to Julian...in the form of a white feather, moving horizontally.
Julian later said that, sometime after his father's death, he had seen a white feather. But it moved vertically. To the floor.

Must have been a wrong number.
