“Help me if you can, I’m feeling down,”

Do you ever overwhelmed by the weight of life? I do! All the time! When that happens, I goof around and do things like this:

One seemingly mellow afternoon, John and Ringo were strolling when they suddenly ran into a strange obstacle:

“I’m telling you, John. It’s not mine. I love Keith Moon, but I certainly don’t share his love of instrumental destruction.”

“If you say so, Ringo. But then how do you suppose it got here?”

“Fellas! I think I know where this came from!”

“Well go on, tell us, Ozzy,” Ringo pleaded.

end-of-june-2014-020

“This broken drum set must have been dropped by the monochrome clowns that have been running around over here lately!”

end-of-june-2014-021

“Who the hell are you? What are you doing with my drums?!”

“You mean this broken joke of a drum kit?!”

end-of-june-2014-024

“How dare you! That’s it, you’re going down!”

end-of-june-2014-023

The two leaders and their egos gravitated towards each other. But, something came over the both of them.

“Peter, he’s another drummer,”

“Yeah, Ringo…give Peace a chance,”

end-of-june-2014-022

“Man, they’re right,” Peter said, embracing this epiphany that they were destined for friendship.

“I’m sorry I insulted your drum kit, mate.”

end-of-june-2014-025

“It’s all good! Let’s drum with our souls!”

end-of-june-2014-026

Paul and Ace joined the magic. They wondered where George and Paul were; Ringo informed them that they were on vacation but would surely be sad to be missing this.

end-of-june-2014-028

John assured everyone that George and Paul were there in spirit. (Yes, and in the background).

end-of-june-2014-030

And they lived happily ever after, as they rocked and rolled all night and partied every day.

end-of-june-2014-029

“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

Mugshot Monday #11

This week’s mug is far from your ordinary mug; it’s a mini mug!!

I acquired this beautiful Beatles mini mug while I was in Disney World earlier this summer. I swear, I don’t intend for all of my mugs to be Disney-related in some way, it just happens! I found it in a little shop in England in the Epcot park! It was in a darling Beatles corner with t-shirts, lunchboxes, puzzles, and other fun things. I did consider that this might not necessarily be a useful purchase, being a mini mug, but that didn’t stop me; I have plenty of mugs I don’t actually use that simply become decor! Also, I could not resist the way Ringo Starr looks here. I love this photo session; I’ve seen other pictures from it and Ringo looks exquisite, sexy, yet still as adorable as always. P.S. yes, I am obsessed with Ringo, he’s my favorite!

The Beatles' final photography session, Tittenhurst Park, 22 August 1969....all I have to say is look at Ringo:

beatles...I may have pinned this before, I'm not sure, but I don't care because look at Ringo.:

God, I love them so much. Anyway, here’s my mini mug next to my Funko Pop! figures Jaylah and Spider-Gwen for scale:

Speaking of the Beatles, I just watched Ron Howard’s Eight Days A Week Beatles documentary on Hulu and it was amazing!! I saw an advertisement that was all like “you know the Beatles, but not like this,” or something of that vibe, and I thought to myself really, though? And I was delightfully proved wrong! I had no idea that while touring here in the United States, my darlings refused to perform in front of a segregated audience somewhere in the South (of course), and did not do the show until it was agreed that the audience would not be in sections marked by their race. It was a despicable time in America and it warms my heart to know that these men I’ve idolized my whole life took a stand against the huge injustice that was occurring. As a person of color myself (back then anyone that wasn’t white was considered colored, meaning my grandma of Mexican heritage had to use the water fountain and other things labeled for “colored” people), I found this particularly beautiful. Those men just keep giving me more reasons to love them. I will definitely be watching this many times and buy the DVD/blu-ray when it (hopefully) comes out.

“I’d like to be under the sea, in an octupus’ garden with you,”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RINGO!!! He’s been my favorite ever since I was a wee little girl just learning about the Beatles. Just look at him!!

Daww that Ringo smile:

My precious Ringo:

Ringo Starr at the beach, 1965:

I love his drumming, and I adore his voice. Even now, he is coming out with good solo stuff! You should listen to “Rory and the Hurricanes” from Postcards from Paradise, it’s absolutely delightful and a great summer tune.

I think when I was little, I just found him to be the cutest. But as I got older, he has stayed my favorite by being the beautiful peace advocate he has been, not just in the 60’s when it was the thing to be, but even now. All he always wants, every year, for his birthday is to wish Peace and Love. What a beautiful soul.

See, this is why he is my favorite:

 

I did it at noon but didn’t get to my computer until just now, but I’m sure he appreciates it no matter when you do it!!

PEACE AND LOVE!!
