The Beatles Were Trekkies! (Rare Photo!) ;-)

It’s almost to good to be true, but lo and behold — My favorite band of all time were fans of my favorite TV show of all time!

As evidenced in this extremely rare photo from late 1966 – Paul is clearly giving the Vulcan Peace Sign as John looks on from their hotel window!  I bet Trek was a huge factor in their creative drives that led to Sgt. Pepper the following year!  Wow!  Who’da thunk it???!Beatle-Trek April Fool

And by the way,  if you haven’t noticed today’s date, better read the following words backward:   LOOF LIRPA !  😉 Gotcha!  (This was hard to Photoshop!)

 

 

 

George the Vampire…

Hey Kids,

For you newbies, I sometimes deviate from Trek, especially if I get a new idea for something about The Beatles.   George was my favorite, and I was inspired to make this little poster after seeing a gif of George eating an apple.  Someone commented ‘Dem Fangs!’, for indeed, George had pronounced incisors!  He’d have made a great vampire, whom I’d take over sparkly Twilight people any day! (I borrowed Frank Langella’s body and costume from 1979’s Dracula). George the Vampire

I’m such a geek, I’m wearing my Beatle T-shirt today 🙂  The design on it is this…(By Al Hirshfeld).   Sending out love to Paul and Ringo, and Heavenly Hellos to George and John!  Congrats boys, you passed the audition! 😉

George

Before today is over, I have to note that today, November 29th, is the 12th anniversary of George Harrison’s passing 😦 — can’t believe it’s been a dozen years already.  I like to think that he and John have regular jamming dates in heaven 🙂 GeorgeHarrisonGeorge65

On a happier note– today is also my 20 1/2 wedding anniversary!  😀  I’m glad that we had George and how his music touched my life, but even happier that I married the greatest guy in the world! My sweet Greg! ❤

Toon Tuesday 3/14/13 “Meet The Fleetles”

Having another jab at a Trek/Beatle crossover  😀  If you think this looks different form what I posted earlier, you’re right! I upgraded to better shading and a much better picture of Scotty!
