Not particularly a Beatles moment, but I didn't know where else to put it.

Today I realised I know more about the Beatles than I know about my own family.

@Tony Japanese, I think that makes you a hardcore Beatles fan.

@AppleScruffJunior and I are watching the Northern Territory election right now (yes, we're bored) and a losing candidate is being interviewed by a journalist and the journalist called his campaign 'very Helter Skelter '

Australian politics, incredibly gripping, a lot of funny names, dodgy earrings and large hairstyles. The perfect way to spend a Saturday morning.

I was watching the new Nintendo Direct Mini today, when I noticed a character with a familiar name in one of the games:

Also, I was watching a music livestream with a bunch of different artists performing, and one of them was wearing a Beatles shirt.

It's been years...but I finally realized that the line in the chorus of ELO's "Shangri-La"  that I could never quite make out is, "Faded like the Beatles on Hey Jude ". Of course Jeff Lynne would use a Beatles song, of all things, as a poetic description.

"And life flows on within you and without you"

I took a nap the other day, and as soon as I walked in to the living room after my nap, the answer to the question on Jeopardy was Who are John Lennon and Yoko Ono? Ahhh Mom thought it was so cool that I wandered into the room just at that moment.

Here in Melbourne our restrictions were extended this afternoon, and I commented on my uncle's facebook post about the matter:

"...It's not quite yet day infinity - it's only Blursday the 158th of Marprilay..."

I was about to go on to say 'It brings on a whole new meaning to Eight Days A Week ' before I stopped myself... Not everyone's a Beatles fanatic!blue-meanie

 

But now that I've had that realisation, Eight Days A Week will forever more have the connotations of covid restrictions attached to it for me!ahdn_paul_01

Saw this video shared on social media and the words "steel and brass" reminded me of a John Lennon song.

First time I've let an ad play out on YouTube for a while...

Not sure what Roger was actually advertising though...

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 According to this article, the ad is for a Swiss telecommunications provider called Sunrise.

I was on the Wikipedia main page earlier today looking at the Did You Know section, when I saw this, erm, fact?

"Twist" sounds great at any party, but "Yellow Submarine "?? That's odd.

Yeah, I agree. I had somebody request "a Beatles song" because I couldn't decide which one, and that's what the DJ decided to play.

My buddy found this Facebook page called "Photoshop Of Horrors", and I was browsing it and found this gem.
