How did I let people gaslight me into thinking I even had to defend the proposition that The Beatles were unique among ALL pop bands in ALL musical history…? 

Unique how?  Well, perhaps in many ways, but I’m thinking primarily this way:  in terms of their amazingly mutating creativity.

Nota bene:  “unique” means they are THE ONLY ONES to have that quality.

As I get older I realise even more than ever how much The Beatles were lightning in a bottle. Nobody else comes close to their consistency and innovation. If someone disagreed with me I’d simply laugh and walk away.

I saw Stop Making Sense, the Talking Heads film, in the cinema last night and was absolutely blown away. The remastered sound is incredible, and it truly is one of the best concert films I’ve ever seen. The energy and the staging was all so engaging, I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. Thoroughly recommend checking out if it’s still on at a nearby cinema, or I’m sure there’ll be a Bluray release soon.

That’s awesome! Stop Making Sense is incredible, but I’ve only seen it on a computer screen (iirc). I’d love to see it in proper theater sound etc. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Should I get JPGR on a personalized license plate?

I thought about Beauhls, but I don’t know if many people would get what I was going for.

I have the front plate from the VW bug on Abbey Road , we only need the back plate legally so my front plate is yellow and says LMW28IF. Not one person has gotten the reference yet not even people who claim to be obsessed with the Beatles.

That’s awesome! If I saw it in the wild it would probably ring a bell somewhere, but I might not remember what exactly it was a reference to for several weeks, and then I’d facepalm so hard my brain would get sent into the next dimension… a-hard-days-night-john-6

just pretend you are stuck on someone else and say

If you wear red tonight
Remember what I said tonight
For red is the colour that my baby wore
And what’s more, it’s true
Yes it is

Scarlet were the clothes she wore
Everybody knows I’m sure
I would remember all the things we planned
Understand, it’s true
Yes it is, it’s true
Yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her
But it’s my pride
Yes it is
Yes it is
Oh, yes it is, yeah

Please don’t wear red tonight
This is what I said tonight
For red is the colour that will make me blue
In spite of you, it’s true
Yes it is, it’s true
Yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her
But it’s my pride
Yes it is
Yes it is
Oh, yes it is, yeah

Please don’t wear red tonight
This is what I said tonight
For red is the colour that will make me blue
In spite of you, it’s true
Yes it is, it’s true
Yes it is it’s true

-Maybe say you’d go as friends. 

-Ask them on the spot to name 15 Beatles songs. If they get it right, maybe going with them wouldn’t be a disaster. You’d at least have something to talk about.

-Is there someone you want to go with instead?
