Seances, spooks and such...but this????

We all know...well most know I am an avid John Lennon Fan! I love the man to this day and I listen to his music still.......


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Imagine John Lennon spinning in his grave.

The ex-Beatle, who was murdered over 25 years ago, is the latest subject of a pay-per-view seance arranged by the producers of a 2003 attempt to contact the dead Princess Diana. That show made money but was slammed by critics as hitting a new low in television tastelessness.

"People say this is disgusting, and I accept that criticism, but we're making a serious attempt to do something that many, many millions of people around the world think is possible," said Paul Sharratt, who heads Starcast Productions, which made "The Spirit of Diana." That show drew over half a million U.S. viewers willing to pay $14.95 to watch it.

The Lennon show will air on April 24 on a pay-per-view channel and cost $9.95."

I've gotta say I find it laughable that someone would actually pay to watch such utter crap!
At the end of the day I can't blame the producers etc for making the show, it's the public that are willing to pay that are to blame. After all, without a market, the show would never have aired.

I realise there are plenty of people who believe in the power of the seance and far be it for me to criticise them for it ... but it does occur to me that this is one programme where the producers can just sit back and rake in the cash without actually giving the public what they want!

Sheesh, I'm in the wrong line of business
