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!)

 

 

 

FArF: The Beatles and Mr. Spock

I came across this a while back, and since today would have been the 75th birthday of John Lennon, it seems the right day to present it!   I think Spock would have grokked The Beatles!  What a pleasure to have two of my great joys in the same artistic universe!  Unfortunately, I do not know the artist, and as you can see, all the original prints of this were sold out — but at least I have this image!   🙂   (To see more Beatle-flavored Trek stuff, see here, here, here, here, here, and here.beatles_1_soldout

My Weekly Spock: Looking Beatle-ish

I don’t know if it’s the haircut,  neat shirt and ties, or the slightly innocent vibe he gives off in these, but Leonard looks like he could  be the 5th Beatle here!  Nice!

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! 😉
