LOL, wait, Pattie has a book? I never knew, but I look more into facts online and laughs, other than reading from the books. I thought only Cynthia wrote a book... Anyway, I think it's a recurring joke everywhere. On Tumblr. On Fan Fiction. On Beatles Bible. So...everywhere.

I know its a recurring joke everywhere. But I have always found it weird. But yeah Pattie has a book. A lot of people have a book that have some type of relation to the guys. I haven't read Pattie's book though.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I never thought of her as a writer.

George though...wasn't he, like, the skinniest one? I mean, John was later on, before death, but I think George was for the longest amount of time. it's just weird that people seem to think that he ate a lot. Maybe that was just when people thought it was more...convenient (what?) to take pictures of him.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Well as follower of Hindu traditions (to put it that way), they usually fast as a way to purify yourself. I don't see George as anorexic. Also, they didn't work out to have muscular bodies. And also .. the drugs. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

I always thought it'd make a great "Paul is Dead" clue.

They're at his burial, standing over the coffin as it's lowered into the grave. George, Ringo and Billy Shears can't bring themselves to look at it. John was hit the hardest, and thinks that the whole situation is B.S. so he defiantly stares directly into the grave.

 

Let's look at the "Paul" songs...

 

Drive My Car: Obvious.

You Won't See Me: Not anymore we won't...

Michelle: Billy Shears was actually from Quebec, not Ontario.

I'm Looking Through You: "You don't look different but you have changed..."

We Can Work It Out: This replacement business will work, give it time...

 

Furthermore, look at Paul's new bass.

In ancient Tibetan culture, Rickenbacker "Fire-Glo" symbolizes death and deceit.

They're supposed to be looking at the camera (the photographer is kneeling or something) but Paul, George, and Ringo see an animal or something moving over to the left (their right) so they look at it but John's like "Pfft it's just an animal. Come on guys, Bob (as in Bob Whitaker- is that who took the picture?) here is trying to take our picture just look at the camera!" But Bob (?) takes the picture before Paul, George, and Ringo look at the camera and, even though John is the only one looking at the camera, they keep the photo. The end.

I wonder if they were all meant to be looking away from the camera, but John chose not to? Whatever it is they are looking at, the way that John is looking at the camera always gives me this nervous feeling, like he can see right through me or something.

This is what I think they're thinking:

 

George: *daydreaming*

Paul: "Ooh, what's that?"

Ringo: "Everyone else is looking over there, maybe I should, too"

John: "Excuse me, sir, you have a little something right there..."

"I'd tell her I love her, but she'd only reject me in the end and I'd be frustrated. That's why I play guitar; it's my active compensatory factor" -Ringo said something like this once, I changed it up a bit.

There was a picture making the rounds on Facebook yesterday that was the original picture before it was cropped and distorted. It's pretty damn cool.

This is probably irrelevant, considering Till There Was You hasn't been on the site for a long time, and this post is from a long time ago, but I felt the need to comment. He did eat a lot, but his metabolism rate was high, so he was thin. Just like my friend; she's skinny but she eats- well, not a lot, but it's not like she starves herself. And she loves junk food. I'm jealous...

Theory: They're looking at an English Garden of course! John probably had an idea to write a song about an English Garden (took him 2 years to write it though)

Wasn't it that they were trying to achieve some sort of abstract look on the cover of their album? Like, some weird angle. John looks amused about something. He probably stepped on Ringo's foot, making him look so...mad. George looks hungry. And Paul looks miffed and curious.

I always thought they were trying to re-create the somber look of the back-Beatles_RubberSoul.jpg

lit black & white cover on with the beatles.

When John Lennon was asked if he thought Ringo was one of the best drummers in Rock-and-Roll, he said (smiling) "Hell, he's not even the best drummer in the Beatles."

Not sure what they were looking at, but here's something I wrote on the anniversary of the release of Rubber Soul, last year. Such a good album!!!

 
He said he had a Rubber Soul. Not one made of glass, or bricks, or Norwegian Wood; It could be bent, but never broken. "I'm a Nowhere Man... I'm dangerous." She laughed, saying "I'm Looking Through You". Michelle was just a GIRL, but much wiser than anyone else he knew. She said "Let's go for a ride. You can Drive My Car, we'll go anywhere and I'll tell you WHAT GOES ON in my mind on the way." "Look, IF I NEEDED SOMEONE..."- he started. He knew he wouldn't be able to finish that sentence. A little voice in his head whispered "Come on, THINK FOR YOURSELF! You're a loner, you can't be tamed!", and he wanted to believe it, but it was too late. With her warm voice and sweet eyes the girl held his hand, saying "I'll go if you want me to. Just say THE WORD, and You Won't See Me ever again". More than anything he wanted her to stay. They got in the car, the fading voice in his head slowly getting muted ("RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, you're falling!"), and as he closed the door she said "WAIT.". She leaned over, gently pressed her lips against his - a moment that lasted between a second and an eternity, he couldn't tell- and as he drove, he knew that that was it, he had found her (or she'd found him?). Years later he'd tell that story, saying "She was the best thing to ever happen IN MY LIFE.". She would smile and add "I think our souls are made of the same rubber".
