I have just converted another person to Beatleism mwahahaha! I was on Omegle yesterday talking to a 16 year old who lives in North-East England and they didn't know a lot about The Beatles only what they knew from their music class. So I told him to listen to Abbey Road and while he was listening to it, he was telling me about how awesome the tracks are ahdn_george_08He's going to listen to Rubber Soul today, making people into Beatles fans one person at a time

Yesterday in my Chorus class, we started learning a Beatles medley! :) Then, the teacher showed the class a video of Ticket To Ride, and she paused the video when it showed a close-up of George and asked us who it was. Of course, my hand shot up in the air, and she told me that I knew too much about The Beatles and she wanted to see if anybody else knew. Only a few people raised their hands. She said, "Is it John Lennon?" and everyone said "No." The same thing happened for Paul and Ringo, and then she said, "Well, who is it?" and, besides me, my friend was the only person who knew the answer, probably because of me. Then I said, "He's my favorite!" and the teacher jokingly said, "Oh, do you think he's sexy?" and I said "Um..."

So I was at the cinema today, because I applied for a job and today I had the interview.

THIS was hanging on the wall across from me.

So I was already grinning like an idiot. The girl who was waiting too looked at me like I was insane.

But that wasn't the only thing. They had cheesy music on which made it all a bit ridiculous. Then Besamo Mucho started playing. Not the Beatles version, but still.

Gerell said, "I just noticed that the title of Beatle songs often end up as headlines… there was also this smartphone case labelled: "Britpop". And good thing it had a silhouette of the Abbey Road silhouette, and not some other band."

Check out the "Beatle songs and lyrics in the media" thread in this ("Yesterday... and Today") section - I think that's what you're referring to, no?

I was talking to my dad's wife, and I told her how Paul's doing another world tour this summer, and if he comes anywhere remotely close, I'm definitely going, and she was like, "He's too old, nobody wants to see a crusty old man like that. He should just retire already." So I told her that Paul isn't just some "crusty old man," he's Paul McCartney; the most talented musician alive, and practically the cutest old guy ever! Then, she told me that Paul McCartney ISN"T A CUTE OLD PERSON! I mean, I didn't mind too much when she called him crusty and said nobody wants to see him, but her saying my Paulie isn't cute was going a little too far!paul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

I'm pretty sure she was only saying that to be mean to me, but it's still a little upsetting. He's too cute, how could anybody even pretend otherwise?!

I'm more offend that she called him crusty. lol. That maybe because every time I hear crusty old man, I think of my crusty old manager. *shivers* Paul is a old man type of cute.

 

Yesterday, I was at my mother-in-law's place. My husband's cousin's husband added me to facebook the night before and yesterday was the first time he met me. He said "yea I saw you change your profile pic to The Beatles and all this Beatle stuff." And at the same time we both said "I love The Beatles". Then he goes on to say "I seen where you went see Ringo. Thats so cool." Then we got on the subject of how we wish we could see Paul. Yay, I'm not the only Beatle geek in the family.

^^ Good catch.

This morning I was trying to remember the name of an old skit that used to air on KROQ, the radio station I listen to in the morning, and I came across this blog on the very first song ever played on the station, which was "Revolution." It's a cool story of the transition from one format to the other.

As soon as I saw the blurred-out photo, of course I recognized the lads.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
