Ringo and Paul raid the costume box

Latest posts by ChelseaQW (see all)

Hey Dullblog readers,

Today I share with you the greatest, most ridiculous Beatle pictures that might exist anywhere.tumblr_m4iv8xt7ox1qdajm7o1_400  tumblr_m4iv8xt7ox1qdajm7o2_1280

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.

    At a certain point during the post-Mystery Tour rancor, Paul and Ringo got so fed up with the bickering that they started a side-project, which they dubbed The Buckin’ Beatles. (Originally, both “Rocky Raccoon” and “Don’t Pass Me By” were intended for their debut album.) In the new band, Paul would play all the instruments and Ringo would sing. These are a couple of their promo shots, which also put to rest all questions about Paul’s bisexuality.

    Is this where they are holding Beatles look-a-like competition?

    I think these are promotional pics from “The Cooler”, a promotional film for Ringo’s album “Stop and Smell The Roses”. It’s unintentionally funny, sort of a proto-Give My Regards to Broad Street—terrible in a good way. It also stars Linda McCartney and Barbara Bach.

    I might add that “The Cooler” raises an interesting psychological question: Does Ringo Starr have a dominatrix fetish?

    J.R., you are not playing by the rules!

    I couldn’t help myself…”The Cooler” is, to use a McCartney song title of the same era, “SO BAD”.

      @Hologram Sam, thank you for this video which title is a cute mesh of Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane
      I wasn’t aware of an actress/singer with name Bonnie Parker, (only aware of the notorious one) I googled the name and only the 1930s gangstress or gangsteress (made up words) popped up, with actresses who’ve portrayed the criminal one, but not the singer/actress of this video.

    2nd pic) Ringo: “Now here’s me good side.”
    _______Paul: “Not to be conceited here, but I’m told I have no bad sides.” Grins sheepishly.

    Wildly off-topic, but I just learned the actress Sue Johnston, who plays Gladys Denker on Downton Abbey (she’s the dowager’s maid feuding with Spratt the butler) used to work for Brian Epstein and dated a member of the Swinging Blue Jeans!
    Ahh, the sixties…

    Water Falls,
    Bonnie Baker’s voice was described as “like a tiny silver bell, soft but tonally true” and my favorite of her songs is “Go Away, Can’t You See I’m Dreaming”. At one point in her career they called her “Wee Bonnie Baker” because of her height (about 4’11”) She retired from showbiz in 1965, and worked as a telephone switchboard operator in Ft. Lauderdale. She passed away in 1990.

    Thanks for info Hologram Sam. I just noticed that I mis-read her name as Bonnie Parker, instead of Bonnie Baker.
    Don’t I feel silly!
