You're not spamming and not being aggressive or rude, so I don't think it should be a problem to Joe. :)

I've been posting a lot, too, lately, and I kinda wonder the same thing. (I'd been on boards where people for whatever reason wanted to inflate their post count, and finally the mods cracked down on needless postings.)

There will be snow in some places, like the mountains, just not in Melbourne though

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

Also, am I posting too much? I have gone from less then 760 to 910 in less than a week. Am I overposting, and if so, do I need to slow down


That's up to you. I don't mind – I mean, look at me! I felt kind of bad when I passed Joe. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Back to business, I finally got something for Joe.

Departure: The pantry at 3:33 AM. Pick up the can of green beans on your left.

Arrival: January 1975, Electric Lady Studios, New York, NY

Equipment: Poleroid camera, a $100 in two dollar bills, one pair of bell bottum pants, and a matchbook from Studio 54.

Bon Voyage! brian-epstein

I just looked it up and in January 1975, David Bowie was fininishing up his Young Americans album, and did a cover of Across The Universe with John adding backing vocals to it. And later on, after a conversation they had about being a celebrity, they wrote Fame together. Again, John backed him up on vocals.

Not sure about the green beans or the bills, though.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner. The can of green beans will just get him there. The $2 bills were just to be weird, perhaps David and John would find it quirky? Either way, Joe will have some spending money.

Can you imagine the killing Del Monte would make if they did that to their vegetables? "Try our green beans, now with added vitamins, minerals, and time machines."

I don't think I'd need the spending money, the memories would be enough. I'd try to add some backing vocals to Fame though. Either that or some guitar on Across The Universe. I'm not fussy. Thanks!

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Awesome! I'll just call them the Beaters…or maybe a different name.a-hard-days-night-paul-10 

To you Mr. Sun King, I like skye's idea of a portkey, so I give to you this album which will transport you to the session. There you will have the chance to clean them all up a bit and make it more productive, but be careful, it's like the butterfly effect.

It depends on if it leads to World War III or not.

It Won't. I'll make sure I'm the Manager and I won't be stupid. Also the Yoko thing is gone so can you say reunion

It better dang well be a fantastically awesome album. 

Anyone else notice how often the Revolver artwork is parodied? 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

In this Past Land:
NEWSFLASH: Beatles Reunion album sells over 2 billions copies in just 10 days. Surpassing Revolver and Sgt. Peppers, this is Now Considered the Pinnacle of the Music industry and another musical triumph for the band. It is announced that a reunion tour is planned, with many tracklisting being floated by fans. Paul McCartney however, isn't calling this a one off thing. "We've discusssed this, and ya, we will probably continue until one of us drop dead". The others were unavailable for comment, but a press release stated the group had "a very special surprise coming in the fall of this Year [1976]"

I've seen Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper parodied a lot, but not Revolver. Who's done that?

George on the cover of the "When We Was Fab" single and John and Paul on the cover of "A Toot and a Snore in '74."
