@sir walter raleigh  said
When you eat exclusively granny smith apples purely for the Apple Records aesthetic   

I do that all the time. 

Also, when you just point to the apple on the record and say, "Apple, the true Apple". Because Apple Inc should be called Mango Inc. THE NAME WAS STOLEN.

I had to get a haircut for my job, and I didn’t want to. My job is well paying but a big part of me wishes I could quit and just focus on growing my hair longer. Sounds like madness but that’s how I feel at times. But hey, the Beatles had shorter hair in the early years. ahdn_paul_06

Swap one of his WA's for MMT & 'LIB '. He really should have all of the albums, no excuse for missing two.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan...

...when you know that today, 25 June, is Global Beatles Day, even when your favourite Beatles site and forum doesn't think it's worth a mention! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Global Beatles Day is "a day honoring and celebrating the phenomenon and ideals of the Beatles, collectively and individually, for their gifts to the world including, but not limited to, their promotion of peace and love, of truth and youth, and of the expansion of human consciousness." It is a day to reflect on how the Beatles impacted the world globally in terms of culture and music. The day was founded in 2009 by Faith Cohen. It takes place on June 25th, because that marks the day that the first live satellite production was broadcasted globally. It was a British program titled Our World, and it ended with the Beatles’ performance of "All You Need Is Love ". Artists from nineteen countries were included in the program, and it is estimated that at least 400 million people watched it, which was the largest television audience up until that time.

Global Beatles Day is being observed today! It has been observed annually on June 25th since 2009.

How to Observe?

The day was not created to be a day of trivialization of the Beatles, with mop-topped look-a-like singers doing renditions of their songs, or of products being marketed. Instead it was made as a day to reflect on what the Beatles have meant to the world on a higher level. But, it is ultimately up to fans to celebrate as they see fit. A good starting point may be to listen to “All You Need Is Love ”, or to find the original June 25th, 1967 broadcast of it to watch. The rest of the day is open to listen to any Beatles songs you wish. Pull out your old vinyls or CD’s and see how many of their albums you own. The day should also be used to connect people across the globe in the name of the Beatles, and to embrace the ideals they embraced. It may also be a good day to explore some charities related to the

Beatles such as Imagine Peace and UNICEF’s George Harrison Fund.

Today I will be mainly listening to The Beatles.

Happy Birthday All You Need Is Love ...

t=68s

Happy Global Beatles Day one and all!

All together now...

Beatlebug said 21 September 2017
Took this quiz. 210 canon songs, 20 minutes (you have to type fast). 

I got 100%. a-hard-days-night-john-1 a-hard-days-night-george-4 stuart-sutcliffe   

I've now taken this quiz three times in the last 2 years. 

I just retook it, but only managed 178/210. 20 minutes isn't enough time!

Songs that I've forgotten every single time I've taken it:

It should also be noted that I just listened to AHDN (the whole album) an embarrassingly short amount of time ago, and I missed 5. 

And that I only got 6/14 for Beatles For Sale !mccartney-shrug_01_gif

That’s an awesome quiz. I started on an iPad but I’ll do it later on my desktop. Much easier to type faster that way.

Was just listening to Abbey Road (Ringo's best drumming album, more or less). I was in another room, couldn't quite make out the bass, but I still knew exactly when I Want You (She's So Heavy) would end. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I don't know HOW I haven't posted this until know....

So, last week (paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif) I had three orchestra rehearsals, and on the last one, we all had to come dressed up (with the theme musical genres). I naturally chose 'hippy' - specifically John Lennon

As it turns out, my grandmother is in possession of some era-correct National Health glasses, exactly like John's, so I used them... 

And the conductor decided I won the dress up!

Here is what I looked like:image1.JPGImage Enlarger

I was going for the Sgt Pepper look cross-bred with general hippy.

When older people who actually grew up with the Beatles ask me questions about Beatles songs and the Beatles in general because I listen to them so much. I love that. That makes me feel proud.

I was scrolling through the internet looking at samples of signatures, when I go "what that's how George writes George?!?!"- I checked it and yes amongst a 1000 or so signatures, I managed to hone in, find, and identify George Harrison 's signature in about 3 seconds (he didn't even write 'Harrison' next to it for God 's sake!)

 

With bonus autographs from Michael Palin, and Terry Jones (whose autographs I proudly have).
