Beatle science. Cool
Those look like good questions. I hate personality quizes where the questions are obvious and you can pick the result you want. I found a quiz that you might be able to use: Which Beatle Are You? I took it and was surprised to find that I'm a John! So much for knowing myself.

Haha, apparently I'm a little bit John/George! What else is new; in all of these little quizzes, that's the usual mashup.

Though, I did go on a little adventure today with my friend to the good ol' bookstore and I picked up the Beatleology book. So far, it's pretty interesting. Quite cheeky, too, it's funny! Supposedly I'm a George with a Ringo rising, which is hard to decipher why on the Ringo end of that analysis at least. It's a little same-old, same-old though for "which Beatle you are" frankly- if you're charming you're Paul, spiritual and misunderstood you're a George, brooding and cynical John and jolly, good-time-guy Ringo. 
An interesting read, but I probably wouldn't bother. It just gives you little ditties about your work life and relationships and family life according to which Beatle you are.  Cool to find out, but after that, it'll probably find a comfortable home in my bookcase.

Tongue, lose thy light. Moon, take thy flight… see ya, George!

So it's an excuse to cash in on their success? Shocking! Interesting that you got different results in the book than in the online quiz.

Hi Lewis! It's weird how well it turned out. I might have to try other combos.

I wish they still sold Beatles candy. Do you own those?

That pic reminds me of the John/Yoko record labels in the 70s which had John's face transforming into Yoko's over about five or six shots. I can't remember which records had the label but it would have been around 71/72. I've probably got one somewhere.

Found this:

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

This was the first Lennon/Ono release to feature the merging heads label which shows five pictures of John and Yoko, with John predominantly on the left morphing into Yoko from the right. The record was also issued in green vinyl.

The one I was thinking of was Some Time In New York City. I have a copy at home - I'll try to remember to scan in the label.

EDIT - MJB's 'green vinyl' clue was the Google search term I needed. Here's Happy Xmas:

Full size version: John Lennon Happy Xmas 45 Green Vinyl!

Gah, that's weird. I guess their faces aren't that dissimilar. What would have been really weird is if the middle picture had ended up looking like Sean.

Today on woot.com:

It's A Trap!

We’re so sorry
Uncle Ackbert
We’re so sorry if your flippers are restrained
We’re so sorry
Uncle Ackbert
But we’re going up against the Empire
And the fleet’s not gone away

We’re so sorry but intelligence was wrong, today
We’re so sorry
Uncle Ackbert
But at least you’ve got that hot ship
Just fly in closer and engage

drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt
drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt drrtdrtt

We’re so sorry
Uncle Ackbert
But the Emperor’s already on his way
We’re so sorry
Uncle Ackbert
But the Empire’s fully armored
And the shield won’t go away

Nieeeeen numb
Ooo ooo oo oo oo oo ooo
Nieeeeen numb
Oooo ooo ooo oo oo oo oo
Oooo oo oo ooo ooo ooo ooooooo

Whoooooo's inside the bunker?
Bunker
Whoooooo's broken inside?

Whoooooo's inside the bunker?
Bunker
Whoooooo's broken inside?

Admiral Ackbert notified me
We’d all just been trapped by Imperial fleets
Our only hope was to just take down the shield
And then we could fly

Rebels, looks alive!
Everyone form on me, and into this shaft we’ll dive

Whoooooo's inside the bunker?
Bunker
Whoooooo's broken inside?

Whoooooo's inside the bunker?
Bunker
Whoooooo's broken inside?

Hey there, mister, you’ve a sister, she’s been found
she’s been found
Guess we don’t need you around
With my saber I will pound

No, you heavy breather, I will take her all around
All around
I have earned my knightly crown
Now I’ll knock you to the ground

Parrrrrrty near the bunker
Bunker
Little fuuuurry things are inside

Hey reeeeeeeeeebels, light a pyre
Pyre
Fiiiiireworks in the skyyyyyy

ooo oo ooo oooo ooo ooo oooo ooo
ooo oo ooo oooo ooo ooo oooo ooo
ooo oo oooooooo ooo ooo oooo ooo

If you click on the link you'll see they have a fair number of Beatles ranges (Revolution, Shea Stadium, Glass Onion). Makes you wonder at the endless ways people find to cash in on The Beatles' name. I wonder what John would have made of the Revolution wine range.

Guy Fawkes Mustache t-shirt

If they didn't label it as such, I wouldn't have recognized Ringo's mustache.

I just found this picture, so I don't know if you can even buy this bedspread, but look at the curtains! They're HELP! themed. Surprised

You can buy the duvet set. It used to be onsale on the official Beatles site store, but I can't find it right now on the US version. The UK store has it here: http://www.thebeatlesonline.co.....24qN3IEb-1

Do a Google search for Beatles-Stripe Single Duvet Set and you should find it. I don't know about the curtains, but the makers of the duvet set are CharacterWorld. They're good curtains. I don't think I could cope with a Beatles-themed room though.
