Back on Wednesday night.
Updates to Twitter.
I decided to end today with a long ramble about my current favorite subject... nuclear physics!
No... wait... I mean The Beatles... yeah... that.
It’s been about five months since I started listening to The Beatles and I feel now is the time to reflect. Since that slow beginning back in September I’ve become submerged in Beatle-related goodness. I’ve heard the music (including some of their post-Beatle work), I’ve seen the films (all but Let It Be), I’ve read the books (well I’ve read part of a book), and I’ve poured over countless photos, videos, and random Internet articles. In short I’ve done the exact same obsessive dive into a fannish thing that I’ve always done.
And yet something feels different this time around. This doesn’t feel like another case of “oh ho~ look at Clarissa and her crazy obsessive thing… she’ll be over that in six months” oh no... this feels like long-term commitment.
The thing is… I really wish I had caught on to this sooner.
I mean, I knew their music before this! Who hasn’t heard Hey Jude or Let It Be or She Loves You or something they’ve done? Hell they’re all over commercials and movies… I don’t know how many times I thought “wait that was them?” while listening through their catalog for the first time. If I already knew the music I now love then why was so resistant then? I honestly wish I knew. Maybe it was because I was trying to be a snob and bucked them for being all ‘OMG BEST THING EVER” for so many people, but the thing is… they really do kind of deserve it!
Maybe I was won over by personality in the end. I didn’t really give them a second though till I random came across Help! on TV. Hell the only ones I could pick out from the moptopped lineup were Ringo and Paul and that’s only because a.) how the hell can you not know Ringo? and b.) Paul is
When I first dipped my toes into the Beatle waters my favorites were as follows:
And now my favorites list looks something like this:
Also for fun my favorite song from each album!
( cutCollapse )
Also for fun… my favorite post-Beatle songs by each one:
John - Mind Games
Paul - Maybe I’m Amazed
George - What is Life
Ringo - It Don’t Come Easy
Your result for The Beatleology Test...
George: The Philosopher
19 George, 9 John, 7 Paul, and 10 Ringo
Georges are reserved, contemplative and practical individuals. But they also have a dark side. Despite having a tendency towards being introverted, Georges have a strong independent streak. They won't push too hard, but they prefer to have things done their way. Georges occasionally have social reservations, but in the confines of comfortable settings, they can be quite gregarious and charming. Georges prefer smaller, more comfortable social situations. Georges often have dark, edgy senses of humour but they don't immediately share this side of themselves with everyone.

Instead enjoy this picture of John wearing I don't know what.
...there is no great detail. I go to school. I come home. There's not much else going on at the moment.
So in lieu of an actual post... I present Lady Gaga and Elton John at the Grammys because this has completely and totally spoiled me and I want this to be the new Face 2 Face tour (sorry Billy Joel)
