I don't think I've mentioned here that I've left my little home behind the moon for a three week holiday in Germany!

I've been playing and singing on the streets here, and as you can guess, every second of my songs is a Beatles song. Today was a fine day. An old man was listening carefully and singing along all through Help!. He gave me a good tip, too. And another man, who I barely noticed until he came up to speak to me, had been sitting near by with his dog for nearly half an hour. "Thank you so much for the Beatles show," he said to me, with a small tear in his eye. 

I cannot even express my happiness.
The Beatles were pretty successful in this country; who knows, it might work for me as well.

This story makes me happy. Wow, so awesome.

I just remembered one from a month or two ago.

So, nhl.com always has a horrible pun for each headline on the main page. As you can see here: http://nhlhomepagepuns.tumblr.com/.

Anyway, about a month ago, there was a goalie named Josh Harding who was doing really well, and the headline was "A Hard Day's Night"

I'll see if I can look through that site to find it.

I'm at work cataloging a book on the lead-up to WWI. It has a chapter titled "Balkan helter-skelter." That's a darn good description of what was going on in that area of the world at the time.

Does it come with a soundtrack CD?  :)

LOL. No. I don't think I want to hear that many swear words in a foreign language while they were reaming one another out paul-mccartney. Of course, the book goes on to talk about the Archduke's assassination. I got to go the the museum in Vienna that has the car he was riding in and the suit of clothes he was wearing. You can see the bullet holes. Just being in the presence of that piece of history was a spine-tingling experience.

When the entire other class came in while we were reading in class and started singing Hello Goodbye. I was one of the only people who knew the song. That part was sad.

We were talking about the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion.

Did the teacher of the other class teach them the song as a class project?

Are you friends with students in your class who recognized the song?

Just watching the first episode of Hostages. After tripping the silent alarm, the wife had to give the security password to confirm it was accidental. The password was "Ringo Starr"!

I read an article today in which the author said that it's no longer true that our grandparents (or that age gap) witter on about WW2, but the Beatles because that's ''what happened'' in their generation. That made me feel a bit sad, to think that those screaming girls may now have grandchildren.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

Wouldn't it be sadder if they didn't? A lot of us (not me) probably wouldn't be here but for those screaming girls going on to have children and grandchildren.

Do you mean if they didn't have children and neither did anyone else? Well, in that case we wouldn't be here having this conversation. And if you mean just them, then I guess it will be a bit sad that we have a large percentage of a generation that doesn't have kids, but I also think it'd do a few small wonders for our planet. You know, with over-population and all….

Really, though, it won't be too long before there's few people left who were there. What, 40 years? That's sad.

EDIT Ah, you edited your post. Well, I refer you to case no1, as you too point out.

As I mentioned before, for these last few days I've strummed various Beatle tunes on the streets of Germany. My musical adventure has brought me encounters with a wide spectrum of people, and many of them were fans of the Beatles. Two days ago, I held a Beatles-cover 'concert', requested by a few people who've come to listen to my playing every day, and it was wonderful. A few people stopped by, too, and were taking turns on requesting songs. It didn't surprise me much that the earliest of the Beatles hits were the most popular requests. But, it was Something, Oh! Darling and Let It Be that earned me most of my tips.

Today was perhaps the most incredible encounter; a man in his late sixties stopped by to tell me all the concerts he'd been to. Amazingly so, it was the Beatles who he first saw live. He described the whole situation colorfully, and even though my German is poor, I understood every word of it. From the deafening screams to the moment the Beatles waved at the crowd, he spoke with tears in his eyes. Nostalgia, he said, and thanked me for the reminder of the most wonderful music, saying he was happy to know it was kept alive. He also told me of the times he watched Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, some German bands, and the time he met the Rolling Stones backstage! I sure do envy him.

Me and you both! :D

Last Saturday I was at a panto which was being directed by a man that I have worked with ever since I was about 6, I also a couple of the principles and chorus. Anyhoo I told them I was going to the show tonight and in one scene the characters were meant to be at school and some one drew on the chalkboard a massive heart with Katie + The Beatles in it, I laughed so hard- I got strange looks. a-hard-days-night-john-6My friends are great

I was at a shop today and they has these little model cars with the album covers on them. They were a bit naff, but still made me smile when I saw them :)
