I’m in a competition with another kid in my class to see who can slip the most Beatles references into their presentations.

(I’m currently in the lead... at least I think)

  

You deserve double points if you can slip in Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey !

I'm giving my special occasion speech (i.e. toast, eulogy, tribute, etc.) about Abbey Road turning 50. ahdn_john_08_gif Wish me luck with making this accessible to a bunch of college kids who probably listen to god only knows what ahdn_paul_01  

So far, I've used the phrases "Come Together " and "that magic feeling" in it, and I quote the closing couplet in the conclusion (making the point that AR is loved because it makes love, i.e. fond memories and happy times). a-hard-days-night-george-9

"""tomorrow"""" ahdn_paul_01

Anyway, it went well -- I brought my vinyl copy of the album (I walked about with it in my bag all day like I was carrying the King's crown, I was so nervy but it was fine) and put it on the projector while I speech'd. I got some nods and smiles of appreciation and a couple people said nice things like 'ooh I love it!' and 'Yessss!' and 'Aw yeah!' so I think I found the men and women of culture. a-hard-days-night-george-9

If you want to read it here's the written draft of it (I didn't give it word for word, of course). I was very proud of it. ahdn_george_06

So for my Creative Writing class, I have to write a children's book next and we had to pick two animals that the story will be centered around, so naturally, I chose a sheepdog and a ram in honor of Macca (because how could I resist?). ahdn_john_08_gif I'm so excited to write and illustrate it (illustration's not required but im gonna do it anyways for fun), it's going to be absolutely adorable. Of course, the sheepdog's name will be Martha and the ram's name will be Monkberry and they're going to live on a farm in Scotland. I don't know what the central theme/message will be yet, but it's gonna be fab. john-lennon-salute_gif

I've just finished writing a sonnet in honor of my wizard-friend's birthday and I feel unreasonably proud of the fact that I managed to slip the phrase 'Who Can See It' quite neatly into the closing couplet. ahdn_george_06 (He put two George Harrison songs ['Art of Dying' and 'Rising Sun', very cheery choices both paul-mccartney-thumb_gif] on his birthday playlist, so it seemed relevant. a-hard-days-night-george-9)

During my theatre class today we were writing original scripts, mostly to give us something to do while my teacher is away. Anyway, my partner and I were trying to come up with names for the people in the coffins in our scene (don't ask paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif), and I had a Beatle-related idea (surprise, surprise). I was going to have a grave that said "Paul McCartney . 1942-1966. Miss him, miss him, miss him." (Because Paul definitely died in 1966 a-hard-days-night-george-10) I then said that I had an idea, but when asked by my partner about it, I explained my plan and then realized that no one in my class would understand the reference. Maybe my teacher would because her favorite song is the Beatles' version of Twist And Shout and she is also a Beatles fan, but no one in my class would. I really want to include it in the script, but I probably won't, seeing as I'll be performing for a bunch of clueless teenagers. a-hard-days-night-paul-10
