I’m feeling autumn guys, I made cinnamon French toast for breakfast, I collected pinecones and this afternoon I’m baking an apple pie (also probably bringing my orange-y theme back cause fuck everyone still waiting for a late summer it’s September and I’m going full force into autumn mode)
Happy 35th Birthday Christopher Robert Evans! (June 13th,1981)
“If your goal is to be the biggest movie star in the world, a 10-movie contract is gold. It was never my goal. Up until now, I made movies - and I have a nice house, a nice car. I’m fortunate, happy and grateful. Life is good.”
They can’t take it from me, if they tried, I lived through those early days. So many times I had to change the pain to laughter, Just to keep from getting crazed.
“It’s a memory song for me, about me and John in the early days…But Vince came up with this great idea: Instead of having young lookalikes of me and John walking the streets of Liverpool, guitars slung over our backs, and literally acting out the song, what if it was any two aspiring musicians?“ ~ Paul McCartney
Material from The Defen ders will start posting here tomorrow. Tags are #the defen ders and #s poilers (without the spaces). I will tag #s poilers until the end of September
Also, I leave for vacation to the Canadian Maritime Provinces tomorrow. Tags are #katie’s on vacation and #katie goes maritime. There’s a good chance it will be nothing but pictures of poutine and campfires and ocean
The Beatles knew Rory well, having shared a bill with him many times at the Casbah. Less well did they know the Hurricanes’ drummer, Ritchie Starkey, whose penchant for wearing three or four chunky rings on each hand – together with the band’s previous Wild West persona as the Ravin’ Texans – had inspired his stage name of Ringo Starr. Though Ringo was only a few months John’s senior, he seemed much older and more worldly than any of them with his Ford Zephyr car and taste for American Lark cigarettes. […]
Paul would be hugely flattered when Ringo came to watch them perform, which he usually did late at night when they on to very slow numbers like Duane Eddy’s ‘Three-30-Blues’. But never did it cross any of their minds that one day he would join them.
