Can't you throw a fit demanding the music is changed or you wont bring your custom back into their premises again?!!

'Revolution 9' and 'You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)'.

Actually, I don't remember. It was too painful.

I'm confused. How can somebody cover Revolution 9, considering it's a collage of sounds and not really a song? Especially in muzak form?!paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

Zig was joking @thisbirdhasflown. 

As for covering Revolution 9, Parlance posted a fabulous cover of it last week – not muzak admittedly.

Of course it's not muzak form, but I'm still confused. I'll bet you he cheated! paul-mccartneya-hard-days-night-ringo-12

It would be an empty threat. No place makes banana pancakes like this place. I could not stay away.

Incidentally, this is the same diner I've mentioned before – the one with the waiter who does not finish his sentences. Which reminds me – I haven't seen him in a while. Maybe during his last performance review he asked "Do I still have a job or…"

thisbirdhasflown – I was only joking about the songs that were set to Muzak. I could not recall which ones I had heard, so I used the two silliest songs I could think of to set to Muzak in order to embellish my story.

What, you don't have any on cassette or any other tape-playback format?

What are you, a BEATLES-HATER?! :)

I actually do have some of the albums on cassette.  Not all of them, though.  I know for sure that I have the Rock 'N' Roll Music compilation and the red and blue albums on cassette.  I'm pretty sure that I have more, but I don't know without checking.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

Isn't it great here?

…people tell you they're worried about you and think you're obsessed.

I think they're just over exaggerating!!!

Now I'm going to kiss my Abbey Road poster good night, look at myself in my rubber soul mirror, get under my Beatles throw and go to sleep listening to Pepper to dream about a Beatles concert!

Disclaimer: I only own the poster and do not kiss it…. I swear

I totally get that Zig was joking! But I'm still confused as to how the guy in the video posted by @parlance covered it! I still think he cheated!

Patience, my dear mmm. I pick up the license plate tomorrow and the frame won't be delivered until next week. I promise a picture of both together once it's on my jalopy.

EDIT: I just realized mmm may have been asking me what was in the picture I posted because license plate sizes are not universal. It is a frame that goes around the license plate on your car. Here in the States, all license plates are the same size.
