Sgt. Pepper: Who Is Who? (by WogBlog)

Here’s something which I hope will be a good resource for Beatles scholars and students for years to come. This is a guide to who all the people on the Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band cover photo are. Every name is linked to the person’s own wikipedia entry, so this page will stay current forever. All the links will open in a new window. You can have acres of fun with this post for a long time. Enjoy!

how are your new kittens?

They´re recovering of an infection in the  eyes. They are slightly sullen yet, but at least they think my cat is their mum and they are totally comfortable with her! I´ll post soon a picture of them. Thanks for ask :)

Dear Ali, I'm following you. You have a nice tumblr. You make me happy with your posts. You should keep it up. Someday I will be as fan of Ringo as you are. You + me = great fans of Ringo. If I saw you now I’d say: Hi! I want to cheer you up. I would build a card tower(? lol) just for you. If I could sing you any song it would be probably disgusting because I can't sing. We could see Ringo in concert under the stars. Love, an anonymous follower (P.S. lol this is funny)

I CAN´T BELIEVE SOMEONE REALLY DID THIS!!


I don´t know who you are, but you are PERFECT and you should be my friend. OMG I´S SO SO HAPPY :)

Paul wrote ‘Oh! Darling’ after John telling him that he was leaving The Beatles… he actually cried the rest of the day after being driven home by Mal Evans
