Why can you only count to 21?

My Uncle had an extra toe when he was born but he got it chopped off becuase he said that he was being bad and so my grandma chopped it off with a knife! I don't really think he was joking though, becuase she usually carries arround one in her purse.

 

The two years I'd pick would be from April 6, 1966 until April 10, 1970 only that's probably more than two!

Ah. Fine work, Sherlock!

 

EDIT: SL! That's quite the story! For a minute, I thought you meant your grandma carries a toe around in her purse…and I was likea-hard-days-night-ringo-4a-hard-days-night-paul-4 paul-mccartney, but then I re-read it. Carry on…

Joe's recent trip to Hamburg rekindled that spark of imagination, wondering what it was really like for them during any of their stints there. It's still hard for me to not include any of their Pre-Beatlemania visits in my two year period out of sheer curiosity.

The thing that stops me is I just can't help thinking about the horrid conditions under which they lived the first time there.

All of you have come up with some really cool reasons!stuart-sutcliffe

And JET! (you know I thought you…*ahem* focus, Zig), thanks for having a sense of humor. You rock! a-hard-days-night-paul-9

Polythene Dan appreciates Zig's sense of humor.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Ah, I had a good chuckle over that one. Why yes, I do rock! a-hard-days-night-john-6 so do you!

 

Why do you pick those years, Daniel?

Christmas 1965 – Christmas 1967.

Funny to think I did actually live through those years, as a toddler!

I remember picking out Rubber Soul from an uncle's record collection and thinking…oooh weird..although it was obviously some years later. Going back in the time machine, I would go and buy it for Christmas.

I was also a Top of the Pops addict (in later years) so I would get a buzz from seeing them doing Paperback Writer live in June 66, followed by the whole world tour fiasco that summer! I would've stuck by them of course.

I may also fly down to Spain to check out John on the How I Won.. film-set..

I'm not a huge Sgt. Pepper fan, but it would be interesting to see them 'regenerating' at that time.

Then let's take it up to Magical Mystery Tour on the telly….and I may even check out what toys my 3 year old self got that year!

He has ten fingers, ten toes, and exposes his twenty-first digit when in the shower.

Nice – I never thought of that. Imagine if you could take it a step further by leaving what you really wanted under the tree!

Oh yes well altering the course of time is another thing altogether I suppose! you'd creat all sorts of paradoxes and all that kind of Doctor-Who-y stuff.

Let's stop John saying "we're bigger than Jesus.." this time and see what happens!

I would pick from Revolver time till Abbey Road time!

After I took it, it opened my eyes. We only use one-tenth of our brain. Just think what we could all accomplish if we could only tap that hidden part. It would mean a whole new world. If the politicians would take LSD, there wouldn't be any more War or poverty or famine.

Aug '65 to Aug '67.

So I'd witness Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt Peppers being released, and I would've gone to Shea!

My favourite Beatles period, I think the period where they changed their sound the most, and started to become more creative and inventive in their music.
Also, I think these few years shaped the decade the most, if that makes any sense at all. You take one song off of any of those albums and it sounds like it's got the Swinging Sixties running through it. That sounds weird but I don't know how to explain it any better.a-hard-days-night-ringo-9
