did i ever menchen that someone asked me

"did they have cell phones or iPod"

the thing that annoyed me about this question is the "did"

i was thinking "um iPod and cell phones weren't around in the 60's'

now what they could have asked "do Paul or Ringo have cell phones or iPod ?"

There are folks who actually believe that the fans of 1964 could have videotaped the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and ask why this wasn't done. Well duh, for the same reason fans in 1964 didn't drive Honda Civics or check resources on the Internet!

The strangest thing is, although of course The Beatles didn't have such things in the 60s, at their last concert at Candlestick park in 1966, the security people DID have cell phones- the first - and there were only six in the whole Bay area! Imagine how large and heavy they were with 1960s batteries!
Ipods- no!!
Do people really think everything we have now we must have always had? Don't they teach history in schools? Hey, tell them television was invented only 80 years ago and see how freaked out they are wondering what folks watched at night!

People ask me, "Did you get any pics of the Beatles?", when I saw them in 1963. Erm no! I did have a Kodak instamatic camera with no flash, but no-one thought of taking pics then, just tried to get autographs or get to meet them by getting backstage.

People older than me walk into my office and see the Beatles pix and memorabilia and often comment, "You're too young to be a Beatles fan."

?! I always respond, "You're never too young." The funny thing is... I'm 47 years old!!!

I told a guy that the names of the Beatles are Juan, Pablo, Jorge, and Ricardo.

And...he...BELIEVED...me.

Yes! I saw them in 1965 and although my cousin took two (!) photos, they were just of a pool of light with the girls in front's heads! It wasn't Today with the mobile cell phones and the digital cameras!!

"So, did you know Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings?"

Girl: They had kids? They've all been dead for so long!
Me: Yes, and two are still alive. Ringo and Paul!!
Girl: Yeah, but they're about to die. They're like, 90, right?
Me: NO PAUL'S ONLY 68!!!!! AND RINGO'S 70!
Girl: Yeah well they still are gonna die soon.
Me: SCREW YOU!

Yeah, this happened on the bus today.....The girl is in 7th grade and loves Justin Beiber. Oh, and this started because I was talking to my friends about Dhani and showing them all these pictures....

I hate it when people compare The Beatles to justina beaver (i can't even capitalize her name!) & say shes better. It makes me want to slap them Across the Universe (im sorry i had to say that (: )

I got asked (again) if Tom Petty was a Beatle. No, this isn't the first time. Unfortunately.

...today my teacher said to my class

"Oh, this a poster of the Beatles! I know you probably don't like them, but they had haircuts like Justin Beiber."

What is it with people comparing them to him???

It isn't exactly "stupid," but I find it slightly annoying when people act overly surprised that I like other bands besides the Beatles.

"George and Ringo were only of session men in The Beatles..."

... yet, just Ringo by himself (... not to mention George) has out-sold and out-charted the likes of the combined Rolling Stones... solo efforts.
