Beatles Photo of the Week: The Medieval Beatles Jam Sesh

BPOTW1:23.jpg

LIZ: Did your college or university have a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism? Mine sure did. I don't know anything about them, but I'm now going to do a little "selective re-creation" of my own and pretend that the Beatles were secretly ardent medieval enthusiasts, fond of fencing and greeting each other with cheery cries of "Good morrow!"* This photo's from some Medieval Beatles jam sesh, in which the dudes play all their usual songs but on crumhorns and bladder pipes and gemshorns, the lyrics peppered with kooky Elizabethan phrases. I don't know why they all look so weird and gross except for John, but - methinks that swashing harpist hath stolen mine wappened heart! I really want us to date, if only so we can break up and I can call him a spleeny swag-bellied ratsbane and a fobbing plume-plucked hedge-pig, and he can respond by shouting "Fie on thee, poxy harlot!" and then writing "You Can't Do That." That'd be boss. Fare thee well, sweet poppets.

*Obviously, I learned everything I know about medieval culture from the movie Role Models.

LJ: Wasn't it thoughtful of Elizabeth Barker to go through all the trouble of providing us with links explaining what bladder pipes and crumhorns are? If she's hadn't, I probs would have sat here staring at my computer for an hour, saying "Duhhhh" and banging myself in the head with a shoe. Speaking of shoes, aren't Paul's shoes so cute? Third-cutest shoes of the entire Beatles!* Speaking of Paul: I bet, in real life, if you took Paul McCartney to a Renaissance fair, he'd be so INTO IT and make a big show out of playing a lute-driven rendition of "Yesterday," and then he'd talk about lutes like he was the world's leading expert on lutes, and we'd all shrug our shoulders and say "Paul McCartney: can't live with him, can't live without him!"

On the John tip: John Lennon and I have the exact same hair texture. It's uncanny! These days, I wish my hair texture and John Lennon's hair texture were a little less similar. My bangs do the exact same flippy whoooooshhh thing as his in this photo, and I hate it. But, as I reminded myself yesterday: You can't let the quality of your hair day dictate the quality of your life, Laura Jane.

I wonder what the instrument Ringo is playing is named. Maybe it's a "trambouline." God that joke is funny to me. Speaking of funny Beatles things from inside my head: the other day, I thought the thought, "Wait, what's the name of that Beatles album that's kind of like Sgt. Pepper's, but not?" The answer, of course, was Magical Mystery Tour.

*First place goes to the knit booties that George Harrison is wearing while singing "For You Blue" in The Beatles Anthology, though not in Let It Be, for some CRAZY reason; second place goes to George's navy slip-ons from HELP! Great work, George Harrison!
