****************November 6 1962 - Ringo bumps his head getting into the Cavern.
****************June 2 1965 - John wakes up from a hangover and lip synchs Norwegian Wood while taking a bath in take #254.
****************January 23 1967 - Paul loses his guitar pick and buys a new one that was just as nice as the first.
****************March 14 1968 - George finds a shilling in front of the Abbey Road recording studio and saves it in a shoe box.
****************December 5 1969 - John, on a whim, smokes a Marlboro cigarette while watching a movie at 4:00 am.

***************You're so clever.

**************Really? It was a joke.

*************which was the point - it's such an - oh so clever joke....an incredible demonstration of wit and repartee

************Or it's the product of a frustrated English major putting his useless writing abilities to use.

***********A real knee slapper!

**********I had fun writing it.

*********Well, that's what's important, isn't it?

*********I think Stephen enjoys posting too and I appreciate that!
********
********His posts do contain much information - I was just lampooning the daily Beatles history web site. I don't read them anymore - not much in them interests me that much.
*******
*******that's rich coming from your enlightening posts of:
*******
*******"Lennon hitting women" - when he, not rightly so, slapped his girlfriend Cynthia once, and once only, never to do it again, as she emphatically stated - and yet you compare Lennon's actions to OJ and Spector's murders
*******
*******as well as your other ever so insightfully meaningful posts:

*******Oh my, once you are on a roll you see death clues everywhere!
*******
*******Look at the 1967-1980 blue album, and 1962-1966 rec album covers.
*******
*******Upper right and immediately below are John (top right) and George (bottom right). Clock wise, the first two, chronlogically in that order, to die.
*******
*******Pepper, John (far left) and George (far right) flank Ringo and Paul. And going from left to right, John and Ringo were the two oldest, Paul and George (in that order) the youngest.
*******
*******Creepy.
*******
*******Revolver. Again, like the red and blue album covers, Going clockwise from top right to left, John on the top, George below, the two surviving Beatles next.
*******
*******Rubber Soul. John and George standing together on the left, John first, followed by George, going clockwise. The two surviving Beatles to their right.
*******
*******In fact, going earlier, on Beatles '65, going counter-clockwise from right to left, John, first on the right, died first, George, on the far left, next.
*******
*******Beatles VI, on the right, going counter clockwise, Geroge, far left, and John to his immediate left. Again, standing together. His hand is over John's, with the middle finger partially extended and his index finger fully extended, alluding to that he would be the second one to go.
*******
*******Yesterday & Today, clockwise from the left, John, sitting on the meat locker, the first to die, followed by George to his right, the second.
*******
*******Something New, going counter clockwise, John, far right, the first to go, followed by George, the second, to his immediate left.
*******
*******Hard Day's Night, from top to bottom, John on the top, first to die, followed by George, second to die.
*******
*******The Beatles Second Album, top middle photo of the group, John first on the right, and to his immediate left, of course, George.
*******
*******Meet the Beatles. left to right, John on the far left, first to go, followed by George to his right, the second to go.
*******
*******All coincidences, I know. But you know what? Omniscient, as only creepy clues can be.
*******
*******
******A trip down memory lane. Thanks backbeat. I had almost forgotten how enlightening it all was!
******
*****
*****i have no problem when BFR wants to play the, 'let's post the best single White Album' or what is the best post solo beatles album(s), or what are the top 3 Beatles albums or songs etc. ad nauseam - it's all cool - but to belittle someone else posting historical information and suggesting Mark Lewinson is idol worshiping is beyond the pale.
*****
*****besides which BFR can be somewhat psychitzophrenic in his own plethora of posts - one moment he's denigrating them for their fans' exuberance and the next he's posting a profusion of 'best of's' and 'solo beatles'
*****
*****bottom line is the Beatles were the Beethoven's / Mozart's /Bach's / Gershwin's / Ellington's of our time .... they weren't god but they did bring us closer through their music - and they did revolutionize the rock star personna with their comedy and self effacing attitude
*****

****I didn't realize that what I post here was so meaningful. I pay no attention to anything in the past, as my thoughts do change and my opinions are ephemeral. But I am impressed! What excellent chronicling of mental doodling - do you actually copy them? My oh my!
***
***actually what you post is not all that meaningful - again you miss the point as per usual - but it's ok; really - the point is you belittled another poster for posting what you term 'minutiae' but proliferate the board with a myriad of posts about which beatles album is best or the best solo compilation or the best single white album...et al and sundry...
***
***as for chronicling, well your posts are all here, for all to see - it didn't take much in the way of effort to replicate them for your edification
***
***it does elucidate when you say your opinions are ephemeral, fleeting, short lived...i mean duh.....
**
**so would you rather I not post anything?
**
**just wondering.
**
**by the way, at the time that I did the board was as good as dead.
*
*The golden rule should apply. If you don't have something nice to say, say nothing. Especially about John Lennon. Your incessant trashing of the man only drives people away.

bingo
