My city just put a roundabout in, I don't really know why other then artistic reasons. Anyways now when driving around it or talking about it I always think of Penny Lane and I'm always tempted to sing "Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway."

I don't think I've ever seen a roundabout; they're still pretty uncommon here in Canada although apparently becoming more popular.

Frankly, I wonder if the local motorists will be able to properly grasp the concept.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

I've seen a few over here in the States before this one was put in. They're not real popular, but I guess they're becoming more common. Before it was finished and before I actually drove around it, I thought the same thing about adaptability. Its actually pretty easy once you get use to it.

 

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you probably have a book (not actually an book) of Beatley moments that have happened to you.

While you like the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, one moment that stick out in you mind is when Sam receives the single of Something

Speaking of movies, sometimes you watch movies just to catch the Beatle references or music in there.

0.0 Don't you have roundabouts in America/Canada?? I never knew that, how strange...

In my diary where I write my coursework down, often there's not enough room because the page is full of lyrics and things like ''Please Please Me released 50 years ago today!'' (I'm surprised that no one has metioned that it was the anniversary yesterday, or at least I don't think they have).

Haha, I do that as well! My birthday is in the same week as George's, and that week my friends were confused as to why I had written his birthday in my planner when I hadn't written my own.

Oh yeah, I've seen both of your comments now.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when...

...you write "I <3 THE BEATLES" on your hand, and when it starts to fade, you rewrite it, and when it starts to fade again, you rewrite it again, etc. :)

There was some kid in my Math class who was doing that, but instead of it just saying "I <3 THE BEATLES," it was a whole sleeve tattoo which he kept going over in permanent markers. He seriously had that for about a week. I always thought that made people odd, not hardcore.a-hard-days-night-george-10

Yeah, I guess you're right, Egroeg, the sleeve tattoo is a bit more weird.

Speaking of sleeves...  you know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when..  you are going in next weekend to get another Beatles tattoo.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-6  It will complete my sleeve...  for now.  There will still be some space left on my forearm but I don't know what to put in the gaps so I probably won't fill that with anything for a long time.  Later in the year I will probably also get some Blackbirds coming out of my "tree of life" spilling onto my collar-bone region..  and maybe some lyrics above the tree.. maybe "No one I think is in my tree".  How perfect, didn't plan that when I got it but it would be very fitting.  a-hard-days-night-john-1  F*cking expensive and painful addiction.  heart

"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!"

Wow, you've got almost your whole arm covered??

Painful addiction? Sounds like it to me. Pretty cool though :)

Thanks! Yes, my right arm will be mostly covered.  It's been gradual over the last 13+ years.  I also have one on my left arm that takes up about half the upper arm (among others scattered around me body), but I'm happy with it like that (for now anyways).  a-hard-days-night-john-1

You know that your family knows you're a hardcore Beatles fan when they try to smuggle you into the over 18's club on the cruise we went on just because they were having a 'Beatles night'. And when the bodyguard said ''no, 'cause I don't think she looks over 18 years old'', my nan and mom began arguing with him (which they never do), saying that I wasn't that far away from 18, and I'm a MASSIVE Beatles fan. He still wouldn't let me in :D

It's going to be a piece with all 4 Beatles with the apple and "Love is all you need" in there.. hard to explain but the style is inspired by Fiona Fu's beautiful style:
