Um...Hi?

I'm Fool in a Field of Strawberries, and I remain incapable of choosing a favorite Beatle. I can't choose a favorite album or song, and I once made a friend mostly based on the fact that they like the Beatles. I'm not likely to say much, but you might find me wandering around, looking through various forums and not sharing my opinion in discussions.

It's taken me years to figure out that part of my fascination with this brilliant group may come from the fact that I could never know everything about them. It's one of the few topics where feeling out of my element won't turn me away from it completely, but often draws me towards it in the hopes of learning more.

So, let me sound more sure of it this time.

Hello I'm Katie,

I'm 23 years old from the USA, rediscovered The Beatles when I was 14, and haven't stopped listening to them since. Basically, I hung with stoners and rockers in high school and if you didn't know who The Beatles were among other bands such as Pink Floyd or The Doors, you were shunned.  I have been lurking here for about two years, but have always been afraid to say anything. By the way, I am an dyslexic, so please bear with me. I know this is the internet, but I have run across a few people who get uptight about grammar.

I was born December 7, 1989. Had I been born 28 minutes later or been born on the east coast I would've been born on the 8th.

Paul is my favorite Beatle, for his songs are the ones I listen and enjoy the most; however, I saw Ringo in concert. That is mostly due to the price of tickets for a Paul show and the fact that he never comes around where I live. Oh well, I got to see a Beatle, that was my main goal, and I enjoyed it. No regrets! I also found Paul cute back in the day, even though he is old enough to be my grandfather now.

My favorite album is Abbey Road followed by The White Album, Revolver, Sgt Pepper, and Rubber Soul

I cannot pick a favorite song!

Hi!

Welcome! And I do hope you stay even after you have learnt a thing or two here.

Welcome! I too suffer from the inability to pick a favourite song, as well as an album. There's not at least one bit of dyslexia in your post which is amazing. I too suffer from a form of dyslexia, I can't bear reading text written in my native language (or maybe I am just a tad too lazy?). I too dream of watching a Paul Concert if he manages to tour somewhere in Asia. It's happy to see that many "guests" are showing up like I did.

Hi!

Welcome to the forum. We're a pretty friendly bunch, and feel free to say as little or as much as you wish, though opinions are always welcomed and respected and a good way of learning more. I didn't think I'd be saying much to begin with but find myself cropping up with opinions all over the place now.

Welcome. Don't worry about the dyslexia. I'm always looking at my posts after I've submitted and having to reopen them to edit them because I've missed out words or spelt things wrong. And with people from all over the world here, you get tons of different spellings and use of grammar anyway - there's British English (mine), American English, and English as a 2nd language. In among all the variations it probably wouldn't even be noticed.

Don't know, but its happened. Not here, but other forums and other sites. But, then I've seen you know, people on facebook with just horrible grammar cause they're speaking in text speech. Which some is ok, but then other text speech it make my brain hurt. lol. So, yea I know it don't make sense why people get up tight about slight grammar errors, but people are strange out there.

I believe in good grammar, and I correct other people's grammar sometimes (but usually I ignore it). That doesn't mean I'm "hung up" about it.  I'm more offended by people who don't give a shit about grammar, than I am by people who seem overly concerned about it.

I think the 'Grammar Nazi' syndrome is more common on sites loaded with trolls and angry rhetoric.  

A site like this has a wide range in both age and nationalities, so it's generally in poor taste to (for example) call out for Norwegian person for using 'irregardless' or misplacing an apostrophe in a post about what type of guitar strings John used.

It's nice to see a sudden influx of new people.  Nicer that many of them are younger fans, too.  Welcome everyone!

Yeah, I make it a practice to ignore things like people mixing up "your" and "you're"...UNLESS they do so in a post that's already overflowing with obnoxiousness and obvious idiocy. Then, they're fair game.

If anyone does care about spelling when theyre posting there is a spell checker on the above toolbar (third from the right - the ABC above the blue tick icon).

Might not pick out you're and your and other similarities but does come in very handy.

I dont tend to bother with apostrophes, always spell though tho and some things are usually pure guesswork (colons and semicolons) but in the end as long as folks get the point and can understand it.

The main thing is dont let spelling get in the way of posting. Everyone should just jump in and post if you feel you have something to say, and even if you dont (you dont get 2782 posts without waffling and talking complete and utter nonsense).

Hi There

I have been guesting on here for a few days and decided to register, so here is a brief intro of myself

I am a very young 60 years and live in the North West of England. I grew up in the 60's (my teenage years) and first heard the Beatles when they released the Please Please Me single, from then on I was hooked.

I have a decent collection of vinyl records, CD's and bootlegs of the band and their solo recordings, also a fair few books on all things Beatles.

I try not to disect every song looking for wrong notes, out of tune singing etc. I just think that they were the greatest perfomers, musicians and writers of all time and listen to their songs at some time every day.

Hello all!  I am a Canadian 'girl' (well, I'm 29) and I love the Beatles (Obviously..  I'm here, aren't I?).   As cheesy as it may sound, their music has changed my life.  It is inspiring and promotes a way of life that I like to live by.  🙂  

Specifically, I am also a HUGE Paul McCartney fan.  He's a beautiful man, inside and out.  My spouse and I are basically vegetarian/animal-loving/hippies so he's always been right up my alley.  🙂  We had the amazing experience of seeing Paul in concert in Vancouver BC in November.  Three hours at 70 years old!  Outstanding.  My respect for him has soared.  

My spouse always lovingly says of the Beatles, "I'm a Fan, not a Freak".  He's cheekily referring to me, but I'm proud to be a freak.  I recently even got a tattoo of "The End" lyrics on my forearm (in four chunks, going around dogwood flowers).  

Seems like a great group here, glad to meet you all!  🙂

"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!"
