I do not thInk that makes up for getting bad grades. In a couple years you will be getting a GED, all because of some band you might not even like in a year from now.

Although I agree that that isn't an excuse for my grades going down, I'm still pretty sure that i will like them next year. And thank god, I've got my school report now and they weren't as bad as I was expecting, which is a good thing. :)

Why cant you enjoy the beatles whilst studying? .

Actually I can't do that. If I'm reading a text book or doing some homework and I listen to the Beatles, I just can't focus. I find Pink Floyd a better music companion for that.

Hi everyone…
I'm Elise (FlyOn13, as you'll see me on here), and I live in a New Jersey suburb outside of New York City in America, and I'm 13 years old. I know I'm young, but I love the Beatles so much I can't stand it. It's great to be able to chat with people who share my obsession. a-hard-days-night-george-10 everybody has been very nice so far, and have done a great job of welcoming me. I look forward to getting to know you all!!!

Welcome to the forum elise I'm also 13 (in fact I'm still 12, my birthday is tomorrow (i'm born on 25th July 1999). It's always nice for me to find people in the forum who are as old as me because none of my non-online friends like the beatles as much as I do

Ok, technically, I'm still 12 too. I turn 13 in November, on the 13th, which is pretty cool. Thanks for welcoming me. Btw, I like your avatar…the Simpsons rock!

Hey, guys! I'm Courtney--and, although "Dipsy" is my avatar name, it's actually my real nickname. So call me whatever: technically, they're both my real names haha. I'm 17 years old at the moment, but my 18th birthday is coming up in less than two weeks. I'm from Clarksville, Tennessee, and I am (obviously) a HUGE fan of The Beatles: this website is seriously like the best thing since sliced bread!

I'll be going off to college in Nashville in a few weeks to major in Psychology and Sociology, so perhaps I didn't exactly discover this site at the most convenient of times haha. I can totally see myself being distracted during class by forum curiosities…sounds like I'll just need to exercise some self control, eh? I plan on working for the Peace Corps as soon as I'm finished with college; so when that time comes around, you guys may not hear from me for a couple of years. But…I will be back!

Everyone who knows me describes me as a "modern- day hippie", and they couldn't be more correct. I'm a pacifist, creative writer, photographer, and conceptual artist. I hope to one day also become a peace activist: well, I suppose I already am--in my own small way. People oftentimes tell me I was born in the wrong time period because of all of these reasons, not to mention the fact that my second love is Bob Dylan and indie music.

I think my love for John Lennon may be equivalent to Mith's love for George Harrison, so be prepared for some girlish admiration. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I'm in constant thought, so my answers in the forum may be extraordinarily detailed and, at times, unconventional. So be prepared!

I have been a fan of The Beatles since I was fourteen years old. The first CD I ever purchased was a scratched copy of Please Please Me from a Kentucky flea market for $2. And, much to my embarrassment, the only reason I purchased it was to play at a British-themed birthday party. I remember thinking that I needed British music, and The Beatles were British, right? I do, however, remember being fascinated by the CD cover for some reason: all the way home--about an hour drive--I was turning it over and over in my hands, fixated on the picture of these four suit-clad guys peering down from above. Why did the cover catch my interest so much? I'll never know. Anyways, I got home and immediately started listening to it…and I hated it! It was just so old and so outdated. But I wound up playing it at the party anyway because, like I said, I needed some British music. When it came time to open gifts, my friend Mary gave me what looked like a wrapped CD. I opened it to find that it was 1. Man, did that CD change my life! Please Please Me may not have left a very good impression on me, but was a different story. And my love only grew from there, eventually leading me to fall in love with Please Please Me shortly afterward. Needless to say, I've never been the same since.

So after that mini-"how-Courtney-came-to-love-The-Beatles"-bio, there's only one thing left for me to say: I'm really excited to finally be a part of The Beatles Bible, and I can't wait to meet you all!

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."

Hi all! Welcome to the forum. I hope you have a lovely time here. I'm Joe, the site owner.

Just a quick note about age. I certainly wouldn't to put anyone off taking part, but I should point out that sometimes we'll discuss issues regarding sex and drugs (among other things). It's possible that not all the topics will be suitable for all ages, but I prefer light-touch moderation rather than age-restriction. If you're OK with that then fine, but be aware this is an open forum where people are free to discuss what they want.

(This is really for the benefit of any parents who might be reading. The questionable stuff rarely comes up, but I thought it worth mentioning.)

OK, warning over. Hey, George, happy birthday for tomorrow!

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

Joe, I wonder if "Introduce Yourself" should be its own category.

It's not obvious that it would be in "Getting Better" and I wonder if people wouldn't even know of the thread's existence.

You may have a good point, even though newbies tend to be welcomed and alerted to the existence of the thread when they announce their first posts, anyways…

anyways…

Anyways, welcome to the forum, everybody who's joined since the last time I checked in at this thread!

Hi all!

 

My real name is William.  I'm 34 years of age and was born while Mull Of Kintyre was #1 – hardly a claim to fame and little to do with the Fab Four, but trust me, it's worth knowing!  No imagination whatsoever has gone into my user name; Little Child is by no means my favourite FAB song, but if Beatles tracks were judged purely on comedic value, I reckon it would be a sure-fire winner.  The avatar is garbage, but is quite significant in that it was the FABS' penultimate photo session – that was Wednesday 9th April 1969 for all you budding Lewisohn's out there!

I'm musically illiterate, so will probably be out of my depth in most threads, but I'll enjoy the ride (if I can get a ticket).
