SPC - 'Beatles Songs' #5

You say it's your Birthday?


On Saturday, I celebrated the anniversary of the day on which I was born. This is commonly referred to (even by The Beatles, apparently) as one's "Birthday."

The "birthday" present that I bought myself that was from my family (yeah, that's how we roll), was a Gorillapod and Ballhead.

I've been nursing along a busted tripod for a few months now and I think the Gorillapod and I will get along quite nicely -- as soon as it quits trying to eat my skull.

SPC - 'Beatles Songs' #4

Let It Be
Let It Be

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me, shine until tomorrow, let it be.

SPC - 'Beatles Songs' - #3

Here, There & Everywhere

Such a beautifully haunting melody.

I remember going nearly crazy trying to identify the opening melody when SPT/SPC alum, girlhula posted about her brother's video to "Know This" by The Remnant (featuring Scar). I heard it, by chance, several days later and may have frightened my colleague who was playing a cover version of "Here There & Everywhere" on her computer. "WHAT IS THAT SONG?!?!?"

"Know This" was the reason that I established a iTunes account so that I could buy that track. I listen to it often on my iPod, but in so doing, I've done myself a disservice in neglecting the gorgeous music video, "a love letter to color and light."

It has since become one of my favorites (both of them). :-)

Photo Friday - 'My World'

I've posted this before, but I thought it seemed appropriate:

SPC - 'Beatles Songs' - #1

It's May and the challenge theme at Self Portrait Challenge is "Beatles Songs."

I'll admit that besides the hits that everybody knows, I've only dug deeper into the Beatles albums in the last year or so.

"Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey" is one of those that stood out to me from The White Album.
