Congrats Fiddy!  (Or "50hundredpostslater") heart

Can you take a look around and tell me if you can still read my initials? I carved them into the wooden door frame when I was up there last...

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

Dunno for sure which thread may be more appropriate for this, so I'll just post it here: I was going out to brunch with my great-uncle Ken yesterday, he's 95 (!) and still quite active. And in the car, I switched the satellite radio from the Beatles station to the 1940s swing station, for his enjoyment. He asked what I was doing, I told him. And in his strained old-man voice, he had this to say: "The Beatles, those boys were geniuses! Those guys came from nowhere, Liverpool, and they had nothing. And look what they did!" apple01

It turns out he'd viewed a TV doc on the boys (possibly "8 Days a Week) a coupla years ago. I don't know what his opinion of their music would've been at the time - probably the same as most of 1964's 40-year-olds...

Here's the weird dream I had:

Some kind of Bee Gees anniversary was going on and Barry Gibb had invited me to help him unveil a big light-up sign with their logo on it...in the middle of a field...late at night...and it was being televised on BBC 1. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7From what I remember I think it went pretty well, but my friend (who I don't even think is a Bee Gees fan anyways) came along and was super jealous of me. He kept jumping in front the TV camera or something, which is very unlike of him.

The best part of the whole video. ahdn_ringo_09

I didn't even need to see it to know what look you're talking about a-hard-days-night-john-1

Also, in light of the recent astrology question I asked and this forum's great love of biscuits, I give you: Zodiac Signs as Biscuits, part one and part two.
I can confirm that the Aries one is accurate. john-lennon-salute_gif

Obviously there are nice parts as well but her relationship with Eric was just a train wreck. The latter part of the book is just heartbreak after death after addiction after death after addiction and I'm glad I'm almost done because it's kind of a lot to handle.

Oof, sorry, didn't mean it that way. I just meant that George isn't her favorite, but that really isn't relevant and I'm sorry.

Just imagine how many times she would have thanked that post if it was about Ringo... a-hard-days-night-george-10

ah, the classic "stop being weird" look. i think david had a momentary glance into reality and thought the whole thing was weird. then everything went back to "normal" thank god.
