The Denver Post needs to do something about this worker. Good grief. Here's an article dated February 7, **2018**

feb-7.JPGImage Enlarger

The caption reads

This Feb. 7, 1964 file photo shows The Beatles, from left, Ringo Starr , John Lennon , Paul McCartney and George Harrison arriving in New York at John F. Kennedy airport. Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles? performance on ?Ed Sullivan,? their first appearance in America. Nielsen says 45 percent of all TV sets in use at the time were tuned into the broadcast, with fans and the uninitiated alike gathered shoulder to shoulder in their living rooms. The Beatles landed on a trigger point when they hit America. It was a pop culture sonic boom spurred by talent, timing and luck that's still rattling the windows.

My math skills are sub-par, but even I can add 1964+50 and not come up with 2018.

@Necko , do you think Jimmy Garoppolo will be showing up at any school reunions?

I dunno. After he signed that 137 million dollar deal, the reunion might just turn into a couple hundred people begging for money.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

It's really bizarre to think about sometimes. Every once in a while, I have a moment when it hits me that he's a famous person now. It happened today when I typed Jimmy into Google and his name was in the top suggestions. 

One of the nuttier instances was when I saw one of those teenie-bopper magazines drooling over him. This was some guy in my Biology class and and now he's making America's teen girls drool, apparently.

You should get back in contact with him, befriend him, ask for a few million and then share it with us. I'm sure we can wait a few months. ahdn_george_01

Oh well.

That may be a good thing, SG. It seems to me, if you really want to achieve that look, it would have to start off short and then grow into it. George's hair (hur?) in that pic hardly looks like he just came from the barber's chair. Be patient...

My mother is forcing me to get my hair trimmed this week. Goodbye hippie hair. (Maybe they won't cut it toooo much...a-hard-days-night-paul-7) At least I can get the ends dyed purple again.

This is totally true. I used to have side bangs way back in middle school (yikes), and they always looked better a couple weeks or months after the haircut.

You're right... I probably should have used something like this pic

georgeharrison1966moptop.jpgImage Enlarger

but it doesn't matter. The problem was that the back was too long for the front and it didn't really look moptoppy, but I trimmed up the back myself (rather un-expertly a-hard-days-night-john-6); it looks like a Mod-top and/or Julie Andrews in The Sound Of Music* now, but at least it's in the right direction. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

*Once upon a time and long ago, I was very obsessed with The Sound Of Music (this was during my Beatles hiatus), and I had a huge crush on Julie Andrews. a-hard-days-night-john-6
