ur not a true beatles fan if you can’t sing along to every single song they released, whistle/hum along to any guitar/bass riffs and other instrumental bits, in addition to telling me who wrote the song, who sings main, back-up and chorus vocals, and also telling me any hidden meaning in a song along with the original inspiration for it, plus when it was written and when it was released
now that I have an ukulele I was finally able to do something I’ve been wanting to do for years: play the version of Something that Macca plays at concerts
starts off with some simple ukulele strumming, and after the solo switches to a semi-acoustic and finishes the song in style
and at long last I was able to do it and it felt even more fucking awesome that I thought it would
so my little brother got into trouble in school again
and once again I can’t help but admire him for it
he goes to a Christian school, you see, and his music teacher happens to think The Beatles are satanic. My brother, although he listen to a lot of music I dislike, does like The Beatles, and he disapproved of the way every couple of classes the teacher talked badly about them.
Anyways, he and a friend of his, for two or three weeks, began to quietly hum or whistle Beatles songs whenever they were close to the teacher. Never loud enough for someone else to hear, but at a level that the music teacher heard for sure. It drove the guy insane, but he couldn’t do anything about it.
He eventually went to the principal and complained about ‘harassment’. Although my brother didn’t get detention, he did get called to the principal’s office and was warned by her that the next time she got a complaint from that teacher, she’d call my parents.
I am so proud of him.
Things I Find Highly Attractive:
- those really big glasses with the thick frames
sure, go ahead and laugh and go ‘oh haha hipster glasses lol’
but I’ve loved how they look for years
I think it all started when I was 13 and I was reading some book or other about the Beatles and it quoted John talking about how Paul used to wear ‘granny glasses’ and it had a picture attached and just look for yourself:
how could anyone not fall in love with those spectacles?
