In my history of rock class tonight, our professor asked us to name examples of "beauty" in rock, and I suggested "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and he played it. I got the feeling a lot of students weren't familiar with the song, and they were quiet at first. But as the song progressed, people started tapping their feet and pens on the desk and getting into it. I might have converted a few tonight. :-D

You get all of your class participation points heart Glad you spoke up! How did the professor access the song? YouTube?

He does. It's a very convenient teaching tool.

A few minutes ago, on the morning show I listen to, the DJs were talking about Mark Lewisohn's book, expressing skepticism about the need for it, especially the 2000-page deluxe edition. Even the biggest Beatles fan among them said, "At some point, don't you say 'enough about the freaking Beatles?!'" It underscored what I've been thinking all along - that this book is a hard sell for fans, much less the general public. I hope those of us who care are numerous enough to make it a bestseller.

Eh, no. Can we have some more please (but at a better price)?

Celebrating some recent success, one of the Salespeople in our office offered to buy lunch for all of us from a popular local Deli. On Monday, we decided to do this yesterday. Looking at the menu and being a Beatles fan (freak? nut?) l decided to order the sandwich called Number 9. I was thinking, "too bad we couldn't have done this on Johnny's birthday- it would have been more apropos".

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it was postponed until...today.a-hard-days-night-john-5

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Perhaps John created those unforeseen circumstances just for you. A happy thought anyway.

Walking up to the shops and someone was wearing a John t-shirt. Very fitting on a day as today.a-hard-days-night-john-6

And then coming out and there was a sign with "The Beatles" in very large letters, turns out there is a tribute band playing in the area. Always great seeing The Beatles written.

Not my best one, but here it goes. Last night, I watched Rosemary's Baby for the first time which stars Mia Farrrow. Mia Farrow went to India with The Beatles and John wrote the song Dear Prudence about her sister. Roman Polanski, who directed the movie was married to Sharron Tate who was murdered by the Manson Family during operation "Helter Skelter". Manson thought The Beatles were trying to send him a message in The White Album

In a local newspaper, for some reason there's now a weekly bit about people who have special toilets. Last week there was a bit about a couple who have a Beatles toilet. Beatles posters, figurines, stickers..everything. So wack.

I cut out the bit, so I could post it if anyone likes.

I remember reading about John's toilet being auctioned off a few years ago. So, one person has his tooth and the other has his toilet. a-hard-days-night-john-7

He's everywhere today!!! YAY!!!

I did a search for "cello" in ebay to look for something for us to give our supervisor for National Boss' Day. She plays the cello. Guess what came up? A Topps-Cello trading card pack.

Just had an "ERMAGHERD" screaming moment. Jools Holland is on Top Gear at the moment and it showed some of the work he has done, cue George Harrison coming up on the telly with "Horse to the Water" playing. I literally did a screaming, Beatlemaniac "IT'S GEORGE HARRISON!!!!!!" and here I was thinking I'm a mature Beatles fan, well back to square 1 it is.

I saw a girl wearing a John and Yoko bed-in shirt today. Most likely that it was for his birthday 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I was singing along to "I'll Get You" on the radio and sang "I'll get you in the end" right when my boss walked into the room and he joked, "Hey!!"

And I gave my fellow Paul fan coworker an extra New poster, and he's thinking of getting it framed.

^^^ Very cool, Parlance!  And Linde...gotta see the Beatle toilet!! LOL  paul-mccartney

My cool Beatley moment today was when my hubby said to me "So, it's John Lennon's birthday today?  I can't believe he would have been 73".  I love it when he acknowledges "Beatle Dates" with me.

Please post it. I am curious now. I was just thinking that the Abbey Road cover photo would make a really cool shower curtain.
