The One and Only Billy Shears

Welcome again to Stealing which we bring you weekly on The WTIT Blog. We have gotten really good at just stealing a meme from someone else’s post. (You can play meme with Judd and the official Sunday Stealing meme.) Today we ripped this off a blogger named  Hui Lin from the blog Conversations with an Imaginary Audience. It's 200 questions, so we will do it in parts. She does not state where she got it from. But this is someone who could not come up a separate screen name and a blog name. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Let's go!  

Sunday Stealing: The Imaginary Meme, Part Four
with Zoey at her Christening.
61. Ocean or pool? Pool. I not only hate sand, but I'm allergic to it as well. Today is my granddaughter Zoey's first birthday. A party by my son's pool is happening at noon.

62. Fridays or Ruby Tuesdays? Fridays.

63. Did you want to go to college? No. I just wanted to be a DJ. But my folks said college, so I graduated Emerson with a degree in Communications.

64. What did you last time at a mall? For shopping, so long I cannot remember. In our town, our theatres are in the mall. Kathy and I most recently saw The Three Stooges and Dark Shadows.
Johnnie and I watching the 2011 Superbowl.

65. Which close friend have you known the longest? That would be co-conspirator Johnnie Walker.

66. Why do you like the music you do? It rocks.

67. Do you read much? Only print. It also helps with computers.

68. Favorite country?
Bite me.
I wish avatars could really steal.

69. What is something you wish you were better at?
Stealing memes. At least this fucker has 200 questions. It'll be 2014 before I'll have to steal another one.

70. What’s your favorite album/CD? Sgt. Pepper.

71. What's a good dinner order?
Blah, blah, blah with a Ketel One on the rocks.

72. Planes or boats? Didn't Steve Martin and John Candy have a third option? "Those aren't pillows!!!"

73. One rumor that’s been spread about you: That I made up the French Twins. In truth, they made me up.
Harvey and I using a timer. Great shot.

74. Who is your newest friend? Harvey Wallbanger and I hit the 20 year mark this year. Yet of my closest friends, it's just Kathy that I've know not as long.

75. Have you ever sat on a rooftop? Yes. With Santa in July. He was planning a route.

76. Was your last text useful? Amazon let me know that they delivered a present.

77. Favorite soda? Diet Coke.

78. Do you like yourself? No. Who could?

79. The worst weather: Hot or cold? Cold. I hate winter.

80. Do you play an instrument? Not that anyone would care to hear.

That's it for today on
WTIT: The Blog.
Enjoy your week.

We will return.
Just a fair warning.
Peace & love, friends.
Join us. Same time. Same blog.

When I was 9 I was bedridden by pneumonia. I probably should have been admitted to the hospital but my mom had a toddler at home and thought it was better for the family if I was home. Anyway, to keep me quiet and calm in my room, she gave me the new Beatle album, Sgt. Pepper, to keep me amused. While I liked all the goodies that came in the sleeve, I really didn't like or remotely "get" the music. (Duh! I was 9!) I still don't like it much. That's the downside to being a person who ties memories so closely to the music. Sgt. Pepper still sounds pretentious and leaves me feeling claustrophobic and bored. I'm sure it's me and not The Lads.

I've lived that movie heading from St Louis to Chicago on I55. You have no idea. I know every freaking line.

Amen to the 200 questions. And, thanks for slipping in the Thom reminder (like what ever happened to him? Probably got bitten finally)

Rubber Soul and then Revolver set up Sgt Pepper. the songs are tied in ways you might not imagine. I wrote a pysch paper on what I believed The Beatles did from Rubber Soul forward. I got on A+ on the paper and have NEVER seen my theories anywhere else. Kathy's pushing me to write the book.

They were so good that without knowledge of any of that, the music rocked all on its own.

You should write the book! The psychological aspect of the Beatles is important because of the compelling human dynamic. When John got what he wanted, he didn't want it anymore. When Paul got what he wanted, he wanted more. You can see the balance of power shift as John abdicated and Paul took the reins. (And I know that you know which one wrote which song.) And then there was the whole "George chafing at being junior partner" bit. Would any of this have been accomplished without all the tension? Write the book, Bud!
