Off-white. I find full-on white to be a little too bright for some things, like walls and furniture and such.

Plain or multi-grain Cheerios?  

Multi-grain. 

 

American punk or British punk?

Difficult answer, and I don't wanna debate about which nation "invented" the stuff. (I'm inclined to say that Detroiters like the Stooges and MC5 did, but I'd have to overlook their debts to the Who/Stones etc.) I'll say American, since it encompasses the Detroit bands as well as the Velvet Underground, plus THEIR descendents who (barely) emerged in mid-70s Ohio, like Pete Ubu and the Bizarros. 

Pete's drumming or Stu's bass playing?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Stu's bass playing. It wasn't as critical of a problem as Pete"s lack of drumming skills.

The "Come on, come on" part in Little Child or in Everybody Has Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey (the fast and crazy section?

I have no idea about baseball, but I'll pick Astros, as it sounds close to Astrid... *I would put an Astrid smiley here if there was one!*

The white tuxedos from Your Mother Should Know or the Wizard outfits?

"Twist And Shout " ftw!

Wizard outfits. One of the coolest things about MMT in particular (and the 1967 Beatles in general) is the eccentric and multicolored apparel they sported, so the wizard robes fit right in, however outlandish. On the contrary, NOBODY has ever looked cool in a white tux, aside from Duke Ellington.

Victor Spinetti in "AHDN " or Victor Spinetti in "Help !"?

The former. He's just as neurotic but in a less dangerous way, which is funnier in my opinion.

Arnold Layne or Candy And A Currant Bun?

Both have been terrible, but I'll say 2017, only because there's a chance for it to improve.

A battle between two of WeepyC's favourite chocolate bars: Coffee Crisp or Kit-Kat?

Both are wondrous uses of chocolate and wafer, but COME ON, the presence of the word "coffee" alone should be enough to settle this! 

First day of the month, or last?

First. It feels like there's so much more potential.

Apples or Oranges?

Bottle of claret. I'm looking for a job. I don't need amphetamines in my system right now. 

 

Arm or leg?

Arms. You don't really need legs in order to be able to play the guitar, after all.

Would you/do you prefer Thanksgiving being in October (like in Canada) or in November (like in the US)?

November feels better to me. But our Autumn is a lot later Way Down South, after all. It just seems more balanced with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas each having their own month.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) has more going on and is more touching.
