Anybody else predicting that Google's homepage will incorporate a pair of Lennon glasses for their "oo" tomorrow?


Hmm, I'm not sure. They already did a Lennon doodle. But then again, it is a big-ish anniversary....

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

I didn't visit Google yesterday. Did anyone see? There's nothing on the Google Doodles site.

It's probably better to commemorate his birth than his death. More positive, anyways.

Hm, yeah, I guess you're right. Oh well, call it tunnelvision on my part.

This post and the next one were a thread titled "What type of glasses did John wear in "Rain" and "Paperback Writer" promotional videos?" They fit well in this thread. ~Ahhh Girl

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This post was all alone in a thread, so I brought it over here to have company. The title of the thread was "How I Won The War/Walls and Bridges Glasses". ~Ahhh Girl

So as I've posted before, I adore John's glasses. All kinds, even. But there's a very specific type I'd like to identify and track down - my collection must be completed!

Here's a few reference images.

 
 

 

 

As you can see, they're quite unique. They're not perfectly circular and they're quite thick, but very, very stylish.

Does anybody know the type? And is it on eBay or other such sites for (preferably) cheap?

Another dead thread, but here I go.

I wear granny glasses, and everybody (especially those that know that I play the guitar and compose songs) believe I do it because of John Lennon. The truth is that I am extremely myopic, and those are the best glasses for you, aesthetically speaking, when you are. So they go “Nice Lennon glasses!” and I usually reply “Well, Rudyard Kipling, Heinrich Himmler and Hideki Tojo wore them as well!”

@MrMoonlight, try Joe's link in post one of this thread to see if you can find the right style.

I went to get new glasses three days ago. I saw one that looked like John's and tried it on. I didn't look that bad in it but my dad didn't agree to buy it for me. I was very upset and finally didn't end up buying any...

Why didn't he, @LittleBeatlemaniac?

@Oudis He wanted to get me sports glasses but I didn't want them. My father is very stubborn.

The following people thank LittleBeatlemaniac for this post:
