In the beginning…

Posters had to answer an addition problem each time they posted (horror of horrors paul-mccartney. I might not have stuck around in those days in light of my math phobia). If the sum was Beatley-related (that definition grew over time), then the poster thought that it was a “blessed” post.

Mr. Kite and I were the only 2 online yesterday, but I didn’t know what to say and he/she left. I felt like this…

That’s awesome @vonbontee (I think of members who joined prior to 2010 as Forum Royalty) Do you remember how you found the Beatles Bible?

It was shortly before 9/09/09, and the impending re-release of the CD catalogue had me newly excited and obsessive about my favourite band again (for the first time in several years), and I was reading all kindsa stuff on the web, confirming stuff I knew while learning new things; and somewhere I read the claim that “Tomorrow Never Knows “‘ guitar solo was just the “Taxman ” solo tape-reversed. (Which it isn’t!) And I googled other sources to find out more details, and one of the results led me here, and I was so impressed with Joe’s site and quantity of info that I commenced exploring the whole place. I added a few comments and replies to the “Things We Said Today ” section over the next few weeks, but it wasn’t until late November that I got the notion to venture to the Fab Forum and register as vonbontee (Von Bontee came two weeks later.)

I’ve posted at least once monthly since then (although I was a bit occupied for a bit in early 2016, managing only a single “No words 🙁 – R.I.P.” in March/April, whichever month George Martin died) It’s averaged out to about 2 1/2, 2 1/4 posts daily, or thereabouts…

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

When I get in a big Beatles mood (which is often) I come here and browse what people are saying and post where I can. The forum is an extension of my fandom and I’m glad it’s here. Happy 14th.

I’m a very new member, but I really appreciate having this forum. I’ve bored everyone in my life about the Beatles (they’re being very patient, but they don’t share my enthusiasm). This point of contact with other fans has been a real delight. Thanks Joe for making it happen, and all of you for being so welcoming heart

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

When I first joined the forum, I didn’t believe longtime members when they claimed not to remember their past postings. Now 7 or 8 years in, I encounter my own postings of which I have absolutely no memory of. I apologize for doubting you all!

#2. Name The Beatles (as a group – not solo) song that goes with this picture =593

#1. The Baker’s Dozen =685 apple01
