Happy Birthday :D

 

My Beatley moments:

My mam was watching a boring show on the telly about some estate but suddenly "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" started playing cue my head whipping towards the telly with big smile on my face a-hard-days-night-john-6

And while I am typing this Dallas is on the telly. George approves

 Edit: Also today was the first day I did my hair/makeup Pattie Boyd style I got loads of compliments, so thanks to Pattie for looking awesome a-hard-days-night-george-10 As I think one bibler said of Pattie "Whenever I look at her I want to starve myself" said in a joking manner of course :P

Today on the "Lang and O'Leary Exchange" on CBC news, there was this "Did you know?" fact about how Paul McCartney (and Linda) appeared on the Simpsons episode in 1995 where Lisa becomes a Vegetarian on the condition that her character would  stay a vegetarian throughout the series (which she has).  I was like "I knew that!"  a-hard-days-night-paul-10

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Thanks for all the kind birthdaywishes! I also got a dvd box from my grandma called ''the complete story'' or something like that, but it kinda sucks and I don't get it.

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..."

:)

 

xD I'm a tad bit late posting this but whenever I read the "Oh, do you think he's sexy?" bit I always think of this

Was listening to Paul's "The End of the End" in my car today, and the song got to the lyric:


On the day that I die, I'd like bells to be rung

And songs that were sung to be hung out like blankets

That lovers have played on and laid on

 

And I thought, "For Paul, that's going to be a hell of a lot of blankets," and couldn't stop giggling.

Put some CDs on hold at the library and was amused to see Paul's solo CDs coming up under the code MR MCCA.

An intentional Beatley moment. I stopped by the Hard Rock to see their Treasure Tour (sorry for the glares): 

One of John's white suites

His glasses and either lyrics or a note. I could not read it.

I was watching Pointless today (the quiz show I mentioned a couple of posts ago) the aim of the game is to the lowest possible answer after 100 people were surveyed and a Beatles question was on today (yay)

The question was:

Name A Beatles Single Top 40 Hit (UK) That Begins With A Consonant

The answers given were

Yellow Submarine- 38

Help-20

Free As A Bird- Pointless (and a great answer)

Let It Be-13 (was shocked by this, it should have been higher)
Real Love-Pointless (another great answer)
Come Together-Pointless (WHAAAAAA???? was my response to this, it's one of their biggest hits and there has been SO MANY covers and it was pointless O.o
Well Free As A Bird, Real Love, Come Together and Baby It's You were the four pointless answers. Other low ranking answers were:

Something-1 (Once again WHAA??)

The Ballad Of John And Yoko-1

Day Tripper- 2

We Can Work It Out-2

Paperback Writer-8

And the three highest were:

Yellow Submarine- 38

Love Me Do- 30

She Loves You- 24

Only 38 people got Yellow Submarine (ay, ay, ay)

And in other Beatley moments, I actually had a Beatles Bibler moment today. I'm doingmy religion project for 25% of my overall mark on Krishna (of course, who else a-hard-days-night-george-10 ) so I brought in "Working Class Mystic, A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison" by Gary Tillery as one of my sources mainly it was just to be able to stare at a picture of George for 40 minutes but anyways. I knew that Joe had written a review on the book (which is on this website, somewhere in the depths of the "Books" section and I was skimming through my book and low and behold on the last page was "One of the more fascinating among Beatles biographies, "Working Class Mystic" is neither hagiography nor rushed cash-in, but a richly informative account, understanding and empathetic. It is an insightful portrait of one of music's more complex characters and should be devoured by Harrison's devout disciples." - Joe, author of The Beatles Bible. Which involved me slightly yelling "Hey it's Joe" in my otherwise silent religion class and a lad in my class who is called Joe turning around and saying "what?!?" and me stuttering saying aaaahh "I m-meant somebody else.....", well Katie you've made enough of an arse of yourself today :) and that was a very long post :/

Yay! Go Joe!

In my Biology notes I write PPM for partially-permeable memrane, and every single time I read over it I think of Please Please Me

One of my best friends told me today that there's a guy she's been getting to know over the last few months, and she thinks he likes her (this she was very happy about). I then asked why she hadn't told me (I was a bit hurt at this point), and she said it's because he's good looking and mad on The Beatles. She thought I'd ''take'' him off her! At this point, I was even more hurt! :(

^^ :-(

I'm listening to an interview with Ken Jeong on the radio, and he compared the working relationship of Zach Galifianakis and "Hangover" director Todd Phillips to The Beatles in that they have an almost telepathic way of communicating with each other.

Not a comparison I ever would have seen coming.
