I identify as male thus he/him/his etc

As for descent, I'm Australian but have Latvian, Scottish, English, and (80% likely but waiting on birth certificates and such to confirm) Danish & Swedish.

Depends on the context but my personal favourites would be

ahdn_ringo_09 (dunno)

ahdn_george_06 (sneaky smiley George)

apple01 (This looks like something you could eat. Because food.)

yoko-ono_01 (I like Yoko, she's a witch but in the best possible way. Also because we stan a hot Asian woman who wears a fedora like a boss.)

  

Agree with all of this. Based on personal usefulness. But Yoko vs. Pattie was tough, they both rock their respective hairstyles!

As for the other questions, I was born male and identify as such, so you may call me 'he'. (Or "they", if including VB)

And I (spiritually) self-identify as mixed-race Anglo-African, though I was definitely born/raised biologically white and Canadian of Scottish/English/German/etc. descent. I'm fooling myself, I know.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Here's a question to tie in, what's your race/ethnicity: I'm white of Italian-Scottish descent.

I’m apparently of Irish, Danish, and Italian descent.

(But I live in the US). My mother’s dad was born in Wembley, England though.

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

In case you were wondering, I more or less picture you as a younger female version of your avatar Walrian paul-mccartney-thumb_gif)

Female Brian? ....sounds interesting. 

Also, I'm Irish....just Irish- my ancestors were lawyers for an ancient-tribe, very-impressive profession, and then the others were low-lying farmers and have continued at that ever since! 

My family haven't moved from where I currently live for about 1000 years judging by the surnames, and my direct ancestors I can trace back to the late 1700's, and they all lived in/around where I currently live. 

There's probably some French Norman or British planter in there somewhere but for all intents and purposes I'm like 99.99% Irish.

If I were anymore inbred, I would be a sandwich.

I am female, so she/her is OK.

My accent is an Asian-British mix. Partly because at school the more native(British/American) your accent is, the better. But I do like British accent, so I'm happy to take on it.

I'm sure this question has been asked before but it is my attempt to un-derail this conversation:

How do you picture other users?

I generally picture people as their avatars or some variations of their avatars. 

Love one another.

Those I know in person or on Facebook or who have posted their picture on the forum, I picture them as themselves. Everyone else is a generic male or female of average height and slight build with brown hair. mccartney-shrug_01_gif Some slight variations do occur in height if someone has mentioned that they are very tall or very short.

I meant other users' appearances, but this works too, I guess...

There's no need for such self-deprecation, Silver, you've got the wrong idea. I, for one, greatly appreciate your presence on the forum, and I'm sure others will agree that you're a delightful person. heart

Also, @Ahhh Girl , apart from the "average height" part, that's pretty accurate pour moi. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I’m glad you think so, Fiddy, you’re very kind. As is everybody here. (Why can’t the rest of the world be as lovely as it is here in Forumpool?)

 

And to stay-on-topic, which Beatle has the best solo music in your opinion?

Aw shucks. I spoke nothing but the truth.

I agree. Also, the real world is highly disappointing in its lack of Beatleyness.

Oooooooh Silver that's a dangerous question. John and Paul both have a plethora of amazing (AMAZING) work, but I don't think I could like with myself if I didn't say George. His music is just so consistently fantastic. And yeah, Paul has songs like Dear Boy and Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five that are mind-blowingly awesome, but he also has stuff like Temporary Secretary that's just no. So I'm going to say George.

Agreed with Fiddy on this one, George. Paul and John (and even Ringo !!) have GEAR stuff, but I think George's is the best.

George obviously. Such variations of music from gorgeous ballads to comedic tunes to breath-taking instrumentals to modern-day hymns and spirituals. The guy had it all. Yes, a few of his songs were duds but not half as bad as Paul's worst

Paul's stuff is on-the-whole very good, he did produce quite a lot of stinkers though.

John his first 2 solo-albums are incredible, some really heart-wrenching stuff. His mid-70's stuff was generally yawn-inducing (or downright horrible in Rock 'N' Roll 's case, the only good thing about that being the cover and Stand By Me ), with Walls And Bridges being the only album I would class as 'very good' from that era. John's songs from Double Fantasy I enjoy, it's Yoko's that pull the album down for me.

Ringo, I don't know enough about his solo music to comment in my non-critical opinion but what from I've heard, eh he's alright.

 

And Fiddy, I'm taking insult to your comments on Temporary Secretary - that is a right bop.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend, but I just... don't really like it. It's kind of... abrasive? Is that the right word? Maybe I'll change my mind someday... agree to disagree? john-lennon-salute_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10
