Nor did I, until asking him to elaborate...initially, he dummied up, but he obviously had issues with my Beatles t-shirt. This came unprovoked, from a person I’d never met, calling me a goof, as I was enjoying a coffee...
Posting in it is a novel approach!
But wait Beatles fans - you can’t just like ‘em ?
There has to be scholarly treatises on why ? (“Dancing about Architecture...”)
You can’t just hear it ?
And to what end ? To prove - what ?
Here’s the thing : if there are/were actual world class reknowned musicians (as opposed to music scholars) who didn’t care for them - does that matter to you ?
Would it change your opinion ?
Did it have the word overrated on the shirt?
Whenever I read "the Beatles were talented but" I quit reading.
The Beatles were talented, but I like them anyway.
The Beatles were talented, but so was Mark Twain.
The Beatles were talented, but they don’t fill my belly.
No, since they hit well above their weight class
I suspect he was commiserating. Signaling approval and that he was a fellow "goof". And so was taken aback by your tracking him down elsewhere to deliver a senseless threat to beat him in an alley.
"All we are saying/Is give peace a chance" indeed.
No he wasn’t...grinning the whole time & calling me a goof, hardly says that. Do I need to bring in The Fonz?
The “goof” remark is a little nasty and curious but he said nothing about your shirt until the 2nd encounter ? I think nothing is obvious in the way you framed the experience.
I have a thing about letters on T-shirts whether they say Rolling Stones , Kroger, Preparation H or The Beatles but if I spent all day ragging on folks about their chest billboards I couldn’t get halfway down the street I’d be so busy.
I guess it goes both ways. For every casual Beatles fan there is someone indifferent toward their music, and for every “Superfan” there is someone who hates them with a passion. Same with every other artist/group/sports team/amplifier/guitar finish out there.
Wow, that must have been one a hell of a survey.
That’s just from observing all of the poo-flinging on this website.
Exactly...he was evassive when I asked him about what he was going on about? I pressed further...his grinning reply was, “nice shirt”. That was enough info for myself
Hard to tell from the info we have... maybe the guy misunderstood the shirt entirely, thought you were insulting the beatles? Maybe he wasn't quite firing on all cylinders? Who knows.
In context, the names, ”John, Paul, George & Ringo“ seems self evident
He spoke English, but perhaps his goofy grin was/is a medical condition?
Yeah, he created some very memorable riffs and licks.....but he really should never sing...out loud....in public.
That’s such a weird exchange.
I mean the first comment nice job and then followed up with only goofs do whatever that “nice job” he’s referring to sounds like an exchange over someone taking a parking spot or something or scooping someone’s table when they went to get some creamer or something. It doesn’t sound like anything related to wearing a shirt.
The second exchange sounds to me like you caught the guy off guard and he didn’t expect to see you again and he panicked and stammered the first thing that came to mind. I’ve know a few people who smile big wide grins at inappropriate times or laugh when it doesn’t suit the situation.
Could it be that he thought you jumped in line in front of him at the cafe or took his spot or something? That’s what it sounds like to me.
My best guess is that guy was Pete Best.
