I have been reading this site off and on over the last few months and decided it was time to join the group. I was too young to appreciate The Beatles' American TV "bow" on The Ed Sullivan Show, but I do recall an excitement in the air coming from my older brothers and sister. It wasn't until i was the ripe old age of 6 when my brother Rudy introduced to me to The Beatles and before long I was singing their tunes as I swung on the backyard swing set. My oldest brother even had a band called The Rubber Souls.

Flash forward many years and I'm in high school when a friend gives me a Christmas present of the album Imagine. That pretty much did it for me. As an actor I hold as my inspirations James Dean, Humphrey Bogart and Canada Lee; but as a singer and occasional songwriter, John Lennon was the inspiration and his inspirations also – the list begins with Buddy Holly, and most of you here, I'm sure, know the rest.

My current favorite song is "If I Fell", the home demo version. It is amazing on so many levels, not the least of which are the "Holly hiccups" that didn't make the final version.

I hope I'm able to contribute some to these forums and link to articles I've written about The Beatles and John Lennon (where appropriate, of course!) and lastly to continue to enjoy the wide ranging discussions contained herein.

I completely misread 'that'sanicehat.com' and was wondering what sanice hats had to do with the beatles.

welcome to the site Victoria. Glad you got a beatles luchbox instead of Elvis. I think most people here would have caused a scramble ensuring they got the beatles.

Hey!

 

My name is Linde and I'm from the Netherlands :D

 

Just wanting to clarify: My name is Linde. Not Linda or Lindy. The E is kinda pronounces as uhh. 

 

Anyway, I discovered the Beatles through my parents. It's actually one of the first music-related memories I have. I don't really know which song I heard first, but I liked it. I was about 4 I think. After that I sorta forgot about them, but when I became a teen I started putting some songs on my iPod again and there was some Beatles, not a lot though. But then this year, in June or so, I saw something Beatles related on tv and just got the urge to download everything and I wanted to know everything about them. So I became a fan. 

I've been lurking in here for a while, but I didn't want to sign up. I just did anyway, 'cause I couldn't resista-hard-days-night-george-10

Hello! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks, and decided to introduce myself. I became a Beatles fan when I was 8 in the late '70s when I caught reruns of the cartoon. I wasn't allowed to listen to pop music at the time – classical music only – so it became a badly-kept secret that I was cheating the rules by watching the show. I only had two albums – Help! borrowed from my father's collection, and Yesterday and Today – the one album I was allowed to buy (I took the opportunity seriously and chose a compilation). As a kid, my favorite songs were Eleanor Rigby and Yesterday, probably because of classical music leanings.

I kept up with Paul's solo career during the 80s, but due to the childhood musical restrictions, the fact the cartoon ended after "Revolver" and financial limitations, I didn't get a chance to familiarize myself with latter-Beatles music (which I always called "druggie Beatles") until fairly recently.

Since then I've been doing a lot of catch-up! My all-time favorite since college has been Norwegian Wood, but I'm all over the place after that. Right now I'm listening a lot to Tomorrow Never Knows, I Want You So Bad, Mother Nature's Son and You Know My Name (Look Up the Number), plus early songs like Yes It Is, A Taste Of Honey and Don't Bother Me.

I realize my memories of the Beatles will forever be tied to that cartoon. I still see sing-along animations in my head when I listen to the early music. It took me forever to reconcile real George's voice with fake George. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Thanks for providing the forum, it's been entertaining!

Hello!  I realize I should've done this before I started posting earlier :-) . I've been a reader and lurker of this site for over a year (but I'm a veteran of lots of message boards online, even a moderator on one, so I hopefully won't step on toes here!).

 

I've been an absolute fanatical Beatles fan basically from birth because of my parents and my uncle. I really immersed myself in them in the mid-to-late 80s when I was a kid and have never looked back. Not sure what else to write but if you are curious about anything, just ask!

 

Happy to be here and looking forward to lots of great Beatles conversationsa-hard-days-night-john-5

Gahh!!!! I've been posting on this forum for over a week and I didn't formally introduce myself yet!!!!

So here we go:

My name is Autumn. I was born in America and I live in America and I've never left America and I really wish I traveled more. I didn't like (or really even know about) the Beatles until I was 11 or 12, but ever since then I've been a complete Beatles nut. I guess I have to thank my mom for that because one day she randomly put the White Album in the CD player and I was like, "Whoa, this is great! Who is this?" And then I was obsessed. My favorite Beatle is George because his music and lyrics are amazing (both with the Beatles and in his solo career) and he was a very interesting person (and IMO he was the best-looking of the Fab Four).  My favorite Beatles album is Abbey Road, but Revolver and the White Album and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Rubber Soul are all really close. I'm not sure of the exact order. It changes. My favorite Beatles song is (does this count?) the medley on Abbey Road (from You Never Give Me Your Money to The End). If that doesn't count, then my favorite is either Something or Here Comes The Sun. My favorite thing about the Beatles is the diversity of their music. They go from Love Me Do to Norwegian Wood to Taxman to Penny Lane to Within You Without You to Rocky Raccoon to Don't Pass Me By to Honey Pie to Revolution 9 to The Long And Winding Road to Octopus's Garden and it's just amazing.

I love technology, music, reading and writing, drawing, and being annoyingly confusing and random, sometimes by being too logical (the universe is impossible because it can't go on forever but there can't be an end to it unless there's something on the other side of it and I don't know what that would be perhaps Heaven but I'm not very religious no offense anyway how can the universe be ever-expanding what is it expanding into? And time is impossible because how could it start what was before it how could it be nothing and then suddenly time yet how could there have been time forever and what is forever anyway?). I'd say I'm pretty smart, although I don't want to toot my own horn or anything. I play the piano and I'm a singer. I have written several songs but none of them are that good. I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I won't write with any pencil except a mechanical one or a Dixon Ticonderoga. I love the computer game Minecraft. I keep a dream journal, and dreams and the meanings of them really interest me. I also like stuff that involves thinking outside of the box, like brainteasers and riddles and stuff. I speak Pig Latin fluently.

My favorite holiday is Christmas because I love spending time with my family. (It also doesn't hurt that I get gifts.) My favorite colors are blue and green because they remind me of nature, which I really care about. My favorite food is chocolate cake. My favorite beverage is root beer. My favorite seasons are spring, because of the weather, and autumn, because the weather is nice in early autumn, plus it's my name. My favorite animals are turtles, cats, and owls. My favorite type of chocolate is dark chocolate. My least favorite holiday is New Year's Day because I hate making resolutions. My least favorite color is really bright neon orange because it reminds me of construction sites and stuff like that. My least favorite food is pistachio pudding. My least favorite beverage is anything cherry-flavored because I hate artificial cherry flavoring. My least favorite season is… none, really. My least favorite animal is… none. My least favorite type of chocolate is white chocolate.

That's me in a three-paragraph-long nutshell.

My turn then! :) I'll TRY to make it short:

I was born in September 1996, in Norway. My journey with The Beatles started when I was very little(think about 9 years old) when I heard "Hey Jude" on my big brothers computer. It blew my mind, the best song Id ever heard. I werent a Beatles fan yet, I just had heard of them and loved that song.

I was quite a reader when I was younger, and I often went to the library. One day I saw The Beatles 'Abbey Road' album there, and I borrowed it hoping that Hey Jude would be on it. (It wasnt, lol) But anyways, I read books in the evening in my room and put the cd on. Once again, The Beatles blew me away. I still remember the tracks I listened to OVER and OVER again: Something, Maxwells Silver Hammer, Octopus Garden, I Want You and Oh Darling. 

I didnt listen very much to the Beatles after that, until summer 2010. I checked out The Beatles, and AGAIN: BLEW ME AWAY! 

I remember finding "new" songs I had never heard before on YouTube, like: Blackbird, Michelle, It Wont Be Long, Hello Goodbye, A Day In The Life etc. Kept adding and adding songs on my ipod.

Even though I didnt become a "fan" before 2010, The Beatles have been with me for many years. They are, will always be the best band in the world.

Welcome to tkj and to Autumn.  I just barely feel like I'm not a freshman newbie around here, since I only joined recently, on November 1 (but I have racked up a respectable 193 posts so far).  tkj's description of his discovery of the Beatles, basically by a teenager in the late 90s forward is interesting, because I've always wondered what "kids" these days think whenever they hear a Beatles song the first time.  I'm sure I'm biased, but I just cannot conceive anyone not liking the Beatles.  On the flip side of the coin, it would be fascinating to hear a "youngster" who dislikes the Beatles articulate exactly why he or she feels that way.

To Autumn, I've long had a question about Pig Latin:  How would you say "Ebay" in Pig Latin…?

Well, since you just add "ay" to the end of words that begin with vowels (you don't put the first letter on the end), it would be Ebay-ay. Easy to write, tricky to say. Try it.

I didn't know about that rule for words that begin with vowels.  Would it be cheating to sort of "bounce" on the first "y" and sort of use it to pivot from the syllable to syllable?  Like so:

"Ebay-yay" -- makes it slightly easier.

 

I just thought of a silly one: "Stay away" = Ay-stay away-ay, which if you pronounce the second word with that "yay", makes it sound even more comical.

No, I don't think it would be cheating to say "Ebay-yay." That's how it would usually come out, unless you say "Ebay-ay" with a pause, like "Ebay – ay," but that sounds kind of weird.

Now, please ay-stay away-yay from me!
