PART 2 OF MY TELL ALL! This is what you’ve all been waiting for, the video. After the show in Baltimore, MD Frank came out right away to meet with fans. I took a seat at the bar with some friends to wait for things to die down a bit and while I waited I actually got to meet a few people who participated in the book (howdy again!) so that was really cool. Finally the line to talk to Frank was less than five people, so I jumped on line and had my friend bust out the camera.
The very beginning is cut off a bit, which is me saying “I have a present for you”, the video then kicks in with him saying “Is it going to blow my mind?”. At one point I tell him he may need to grab a tissue when he read my letter and he said he needed one already. Also the surprise was intact. He had no idea we were planning this, so good stealth work everyone! - val
If you’re one of those people who doesn’t understand why I am pro-fandom and/or run three music blogs, then you will after you watch this video.
Frank Mother-Fucking Turner mother-fucking CRIED at OUR (Dear Frank Turner) Fan Letter Project!
Even though I’m not always at my best—sometimes I let people down and sometimes I’m let down—it comforts me that I have friends, acquaintances and fellow humans who I may or may not have met who are empathetic and believe in grand gestures.
