Welcome, @Elementary Penguin. There's a running joke on the forum about @ewe2 and a penguin. Check out his signature line:

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele synthesizer penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele synthesizer penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.

If you ever wonder about our inside forum jokes, just ask. Someone will tell the tale or pull up the post where it all started.

I don't mind, it alerts me to the presence of other penguins on the forums. Yes, it's a long story. No, I'm not going to tell it.¬†@Elementary Penguin don't worry, the Beatles had a zany sense of humour and it attracts a similar kind of fan ūüėĬ†

The on-going jokes we have can make newcomers feel like outsiders. So if they stumble across something, I don't mind telling them the history of the joke...like THE GIF.

Thank you all for making me feel welcome.

I will definitely ask if I come across any in jokes that I don't understand and I will try not to kick anyone but I can't make any promises. a-hard-days-night-george-10

You are younger than ASJ... And that's off the top of my head. You are still a toddler... You shouldn't be able to construct such good sentences!

Hi All,

My name is Trevor and I live in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. I'm a first gen Beatles fan and can still remember buying my first single at the back end of 1963. It was I Want To Hold Your Hand and cost the princely sum of 6s 8d! I rather lost touch with music for a long time when I started work and discovered the fairer sex, all my vinyl disappeared from my parents home and I never found out where it went. I started listening to MP3s and CDs but was never entirely happy with the sound. I finally bought a decent streamer and have been listening to hi res FLAC for a while and it is a much more enjoyable experience. My brother who is also a Beatles fan recently bought a turntable and Please Please Me in mono and it made me wonder if I could recapture the original sound experience by doing the same. That was how I found this lovely community! If anyone has gone down this road I'd love to hear what you think.

Enough waffling and I look forward to joining in. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Best wishes.

Welcome to the forum @HappyHaggis ! It's so great you experienced the Beatles in their active phase and there are also other first generation fans over here with which you can talk about the original sound experience.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
