Happy Jacob Appreciation Day Everyone! I wanted to make something a little more special for our man here, but it’s getting late and I don’t think I have anything ‘cute’ to come up with! So, I decided to make a quick GIF set for this cutie patootie!

Also, Happy Birthday to Paul Amos! (Had to spell that with a ‘Z’ in the GIF)

John, George and Ringo give Paul the birthday bumps for his 21st birthday. I think these photos must have been taken on the 17th June, the day before Paul’s birthday as that’s the date of the Beatles photoshoot with Dezo Hoffmann in London, after which they returned to Liverpool for Paul’s birthday party the following night. 

Pics: Dezo Hoffmann.

Happy 48th Birthday, Paul Benjamin Mendelsohn (April 3, 1969) ❤

My dial is set to pessimism. I think pessimism is a win-win situation. You’re gonna try harder — if things don’t go so well, you kind of half-expected that anyway. And if they do go well, then you get pleasantly surprised. But the most important thing about being a pessimist is it means you put more effort in. I think pessimism equals effort.
