Welcome to the forum cbatcu.  What a great story! Good luck with your cd collecting. 

It doesn't seem possible that the Beatles will ever cease to sell records!

Hi all - a quick hello from 'down under'.

I used to own the blue LP box years ago, but my 'better half' made me sell my LPs to save space.  I have slowly been buying CDs of my favourites, but for some reason never got around to the Beatles (who were actually the ones I liked most - I had every solo LP up to around 1979 as well).

Long story short, I saw the stereo CD box at a good price the other week and bought it; and in short order a dozen or so remastered solo CDs, plus the Anthologies, One, Love, BBC and a few other odds and ends - so you may well see me across these forums as I have a listen and want to chat about the experience.

Hadn't realised how much I missed Ram, Plastic Ono Band and Band on the Run, to name just a few.

Hello and welcome trcanberra!  Nice to have a fellow Australian on board - we in the southern hemisphere are seriously outnumbered around here!

to fabfouremily: thanks. Your profile says you like libraries. Cool. I'm a librarian. I got my MLIS from the University of Southern Mississippi. I have been a university librarian in Oklahoma for 17 years now.

I'm starting to learn my way around the forum. It is so big!

^ I do really love libraries, yes. Well, to be more specific, I love the smell of libraries. That dusty smell, can't beat it :) At times when I'm in a defeated mood and I think I'll never get the grades to eventually work in the field of clinical Psychology, I dream of opening a little library that has a small coffee shop on the side that sells gorgeous cakes, too. Maybe that's what I'll end up doing one day.

Glad to hear you're finding your way around :)

I'm sure you would have books on the Beatles and at least one listening station with Beatles cds or records :-)

Good luck in your studies!

^ work in the field of clinical Psychology,

I forgot to mention that I also have an MS in Behavioral Science. I had to get a second masters to keep my job at the university. I call my Behavioral Science masters my "for me" degree. I enjoyed studying all the psych stuff. I do get to use some of what I learned to help the students in the psychology program gather materials for papers. Humm, a paper on the psychology of the Beatles or using Beatles songs for therapy, or...

^ Interesting. There are so many ''me degrees'' I'd love to do. After all, I do enjoy studying and why should it only be to have a career with it afterwards? Uni is so expensive here, though, it's simply out of the question.

Welcome to any new members who joined!!!

To other people: Sorry I haven't been online a lot, I'm in my last 2 years of school now and the workload is massive so I'm studying/doing homework all the time and my head and back are killing me a-hard-days-night-george-10

Seeing as we're talking about libraries/degrees:

My opinion on

Libraries: Love them, the thought of getting to read books and not have to pay :D 'tis great! But as I have commented before there are no Beatles books in my public library!!!!! And the next closest library is 30 mins away from in the car and I can't drive for another 2 years!

Degrees: Hoping to study in NUIG (the main university in Galway. F.Y.I for all the people who just joined/don't know- I'm from Ireland. I would like to do a German & Commerce degree in college but it's getting harder every year to get into the course. paul-mccartney But if I do get that course it means I get to study my 3rd year in Germany, yayyyy which means a weekend trip to Hamburg!

But my dream degree is a degree in "The Beatles, Popular Music and Society" in Hope University Liverpool but I do kind of want a job in life...so I don't think I'd ever do that course a-hard-days-night-george-10. It is a postgrad degree as well and I'd have to do something in music so blue-meanie

It looks like Ireland has a robust Interlibrary Loan system set up. Ask the librarians at your local library about having books from other libraries sent to you local library for you to check out.
