A few days ago Eric Trump inadvertently sent the anime series Mob Psycho 100 to the toppermost of the Twitterverse when he Googled "mob." He signally failed to grasp why the popularity/relevance algorithm Google uses put images of the show early in the search results. Fans of the show reacted with predictable glee, and the Mob Psycho 100 Twitter account posted this, featuring an image of Shigeo Kageyama, the character familiarly known as "Mob": Doesn't that image remind you of someone? Or four someones? Doesn't it seem as though that look might be a merchandising opportunity for, I don't know, maybe a [...]
The consistently illuminating and funny duo who run the comedy fashion site gofugyourself.com, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, just posted a photo of John and Yoko at Cannes in 1971 to promote their film Apotheosis. I highly recommend checking out Heather's comment on the photo, and the site as a whole. I'd never heard of this film. Wikipedia summaries it thus: "The film depicts a 17-minute-long journey on a balloon as it ascends and finally rises into the clouds. Lennon and Ono appear at the start of the film dressed in dark cloaks and hoods." I dunno about the cloaks and hoods, but taking [...]
Hey Dullblog readers, Today I share with you the greatest, most ridiculous Beatle pictures that might exist anywhere. What is the context for these? I have NO idea (I randomly found them on tumblr). And I love them so much BECAUSE I have no context for them. Please do not rain on my parade and explain them, unless your explanation is completely fictional and matches the absurdity of the images themselves. In which case, a pair of chaps and a ten gallon hat goes to the winner of the caption contest.
Paul in "A Hard Day's Night," foreshadowing the Beatles' hirsute future. In an example of Beatle fandom amped to a truly Dullbloggian intensity, I offer "The Beatles Mustache Index." Can you spot any mistakes? I think I found one: the picture of Ringo with Geoff Emerick says that "[Ringo] shaves everything off and starts fresh before the "Hey Bulldog" recording sessions, but otherwise he has a moustache from 1966-thru 1970 and beyond." And then, not two pictures later, we see Ringo clean-shaven (July 8, 1968)." So did he shave directly prior to February 11, 1968, and then again directly prior [...]
That title says it all, really. If you want to cut to the chase, start watching this clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live at about the 2:15 mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePCxz76qzr8 And in this photo of Cyrus, Jett, and McCartney at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Paul does a little . . . nonplussed. Say what you will about Miley, she's performing a version of 1960s freedom that the Beatles helped pioneer. She's done the Sgt. Pepper's cover album with the Flaming Lips, and I can just see her on the bus with Ken Kesey if she'd been a teenager [...]
Sir Business-in-Front-Party-in-Back My latest internet rabbit hole, down which I can spend entirely too much time, is this Tumblr site, which bills itself "Paul McCartney's Mullet Appreciation Blog." The site's owners, Christina and Hannah, are entirely too modest in their description: "This is not a quality blog. All I will do is post photos of Sir Paul. And his mullet. And occasionally his legs." [I've reached out to them via Tumblr; maybe C and H will tell us more about their mission of mercy.--MG] They post lots of great stuff, like this picture of John and Paul: Bangor University, [...]
