It has been a day. I had a phone interview this morning and then went to get our taxes completed. Already got a call back to schedule a in-person interview for said job. And I got this in the mail for reading for the blog I am working on.

Now my daughter and I settling in for a Disney marathon while my husband is at work.

GondorGirl Good luck with your interview! 🤞 6mo

At just under 11 hours I wasn‘t aware this was an abridged audio version of the Beatles Biography. I found it richly detailed and quite informative. As I listened, I realized I knew very little about the four lads from Liverpool. Wow, they were young when Beatlemania was at an all time high. This book gives a definitive look at the rise of the Beatles and shares the stories behind some of their more famous songs & albums. It also bares some 👇🏼

Cinfhen of the uglier sides of John, Paul and Yoko Ono. I was unaware of how consumed John Lennon was with psychedelic drugs. He seemed to be the most temperamental of the four. Audio narration was excellent. #POP22 #AboutABandOrMusicalGroup #NF22 #IAmRockAndRoll #Book2022 #CreateYourOwnPrompt #BookSetInTheDecadeOfYourBirthYear @BarbaraBB @Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @KarenUK @jenniferw88 @RaeLovesToRead @Laughterhp @Cortg @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 8mo
KarenUK I recently watched the new 3 part documentary, Get Back, and that was about 9 hours! It focused entirely on them writing and recording their last album, and was SO fascinating! It was like a fly-on-the-wall study of nuances of human behavior, with all the friendship history, their creative genius, petty rivalries and frustrations etc under a microscope. Really worth watching. 8mo
Cinfhen Was it Netflix @KarenUK ? I‘d be curious to watch the documentary. Ultimately It really was a sad story 😔They became more of a phenomenon than a band. Fame is a bitter pill 8mo

TrishB John was not the all round good guy that his public persona still comes across as. Hubby loved the documentary that @KarenUK talked about (I found it a bit boring- but in Liverpool we know everything about The Beatles anyway 😁😁). 8mo
KarenUK In US I think it‘s Disney+ only…. we signed on just for a month, to watch that and Hamilton! @Cinfhen It was DEFINITELY long, but I couldn‘t tear my eyes away…. @TrishB but is was all new to me! 8mo
Cinfhen I REALLY hope to visit one day @TrishB and get the Beatles tour from you xxx I‘ll have to look for the documentary @KarenUK my son is good about finding the websites needed ☺️ 8mo

This fed my love of the Beatles all the way. It was a little disturbing getting into the mind of the man who took Lennon's life. The insight into the band and their development was awesome!

That was fascinating. Wow! So informative. Now I really don't like the Beatles.....or their fans. You don't have to be a fan to enjoy this book.......and it has pictures. Bonus!

The curious thing about the stubborn ne'er-do-well was that, away from the classroom and its hated compulsion, he was a bookworm whose taste in literature far outpaced Quarry Bank's English syllabus and who, left to his own devices, spent hours in the posture of the most conscientious student, reading, writing, or drawing.

It was always obvious that John was just as bright or a good bit brighter than anyone else around. But right from the beginning it was obvious he'd made up his mind not to subscribe to the system in any way.

Working Class Hero

John Lennon and Plastic Ono Band

As soon as you're born, they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
(cont'd in comments)

bibliobliss 'Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool

bibliobliss 'Til you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function, you're so full of fear

bibliobliss A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me
If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me
