Ha, was it any good of an accent? Did you go 'posh' or full-Scouse?

I dunno, I guess it was all right. I didn't Scouse, unfortunately; that was later when I started developing the Liddypool, which I also got fairly good at.

I’ve read some of his work and I always thought he was English. Hm.

While Eliot (one of my favourite poets) may have been born in America, he came to England in 1914. He was 25. Settling here, he worked for Faber and married here, and in 1927, at the age of 39, he gave up his American citizenship and became a British citizen. So, though born American, Eliot considered himself very much as being British.

Thanks Ron Nasty; I didn't realize he had become a British citizen -- and relatively young at that. I like his Four Quartets.

Time for nine more, methinks, for all the young dudes (and dudettes) a-hard-days-night-george-10

1. I have a kid sister (Little Girl or Silly Sis) who likes all the music I listen to (we have a fairly good relationship despite the age difference, and I have brainwashed her a-hard-days-night-john-6 taught her wella-hard-days-night-george-4)
2. I used to wear skirts religiously, but then I decided that I wanted to look like an androgynous 1960s/70s rock musician and started wearing only pants and fruity vintage-looking button-downs and vests.
3. In the same vein, I used to have insanely long hair, but then I chopped it all off in November and turned it into a sort of shaggy 1967 post-moptop.
4. I'm asexual and aromantic (and proud of it...!). I do love people*, just not like that ahdn_george_08
5. I am a staunch supporter of LGBTQ+ rights; I'm very interested in minority sexualities/genders.
6. I like travelling -- I'm very good at sitting in the car for long periods of time and enjoying seeing new places -- and I love coming home.
7. I don't ship... but when I do, I ship Jimmy Page and Robert Plant ahdn_george_06
8. I have a thing for androgynous people; effeminate lads and women wearing ties and/or tuxedos just look cool to me. That's probably partly why the late-60s aesthetic appeals to me.
9. Sometimes I think I love guitars more than I love people. a-hard-days-night-george-10

*More accurately, I love humanity but humans drive me crazy a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-george-10

1. I like Classical Antiquity and primary sources from the time. 

2. I am a Dungeon Master for a DnD party. 

3. I wear red suede sneakers

4. Although i’ve had long hair for most of my life, I really have no preference stylistically and am typically just too lazy to get a haircut. 

5. I am an avid Mountain Biker, and will work as a camp counselor next summer leading bike trips. 

6. My three favorite sports are Baseball Football and Basketball. Basketball is my favorite to play, Football is my favorite to watch, but I love Baseball the most. My teams are The Atlanta Braves, Hawks, and Falcons and I follow their seasons every year. (Well not really the Hawks much this year because we have the worst record in the NBA, but I have really enjoyed the competition in the rest of the league. 

7. Jolly Ranchers are my favorite candy. 

8. I have dislocated my shoulder 4 times and have had 2 labrum repair surgeries. 

9. I spend most of my time stoned.

 As I haven't been on this forum in quite a while Im just gonna place some posts on here just so I can get used to the forum environment again. Here goes:

1. As my name suggests, yes I am from Canada. Originally in Manitoba, I moved to Toronto just in September for school reasons, which leads to:

2. I am currently attending my first year in college in Toronto for Music and Sound Recording, following the dream of working with music

3. I got into the Beatles when I was in grade 9 (6 years ago already, but I dont like to think that 19 is too old) when my cousin introduced me to her game The Beatles: Rock Band

4. I had the opportunity to see Paul McCartney perform live in grade 9 as well

5. I've never owned a cellphone until a year ago, before I just had to use a tablet or iPad mini for my internet uses when I wasnt around my computer.

6. I love video games. I really enjoy rhythm based ones, like Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution .

7. My biggest fantasy/wish is to be able to go see a US 1950's style diner (with the checkerboard floor pattern, and red vinyl booths) and enjoy a strawberry milkshake

8. The first songs I remember really dancing and liking were Lollipop, by The Chordettes, and Hey Ya by OutKast.

9. Finally, I fall into the L(G)BT spectrum as well.

Here's another 9 facts because I'm pretty bored.

1. I have a Les Paul copy electric guitar, but I wish I'd bought a different type like a Fender Mustang or Jazzmaster because they suit my playing style much better.

2. I listen to about 5 hours of music a day.

3. I have made demos of dozens of songs and covers but I am always too lazy to finish them.

4. My favourite musician is Phil Elverum a.k.a Mount Eerie/The Microphones.

5. I am interested in politics, and am considering doing a degree in it when I leave school.

6. My social life is something of a paradox because I am part of a large group of friends all of whom I get on with, but I am actually very shy and somehow manage to conceal this. 

7. I model most of my clothing on musicians e.g dungarees (Mac DeMarco/Ringo Starr ), suede jacket (Dylan on the cover of Freewheelin') 

8. I like the cold, the winter and the snow. I'm not particularly nocturnal but I like the atmosphere of being outside at night. 

9. I have recently decided not to drink alcohol again (not that I did often anyways, but the last time I did I realised that I don't enjoy it and it's not worth getting a hangover).

Honestly, we have so many Australian forumpudlians, we should start a Revolution and make this site http://www.beatlesbible.com.au!

 

I may as well do another 9 too:

1. I like only very few movies that I see

2. Though I dislike anything made by Apple (the tech company...apple01), I have an iPhone

3. I have waaaay too many YouTube subscriptions

4. I'd like to be fitter than I am now

5. I like to arrive at my destination early, but also leave as early as I can

6. I've been on TV on more than two occasions (maybe morederek-taylor_01_gif)

7. I write this point at 8:46 PM my time, yet my mum thinks and expects me to be asleep, like she does every night at this time

8. I identify as extremely progressive, politically-wise

9. A good walk, especially on a very atmospherical evening, is one of the best things ever.
