  1. After “Strawberry Fields” finished playing, an ad appeared on the bottom of the screen promoting information available regarding intelligent concealed carry of handguns. Did the advertising process here think I was interested in that idea? Did they figure that someone who likes listening to The Beatles would wear a firearm on their hip, reciting “Mother Superior jumped the gu-u-un …”? Does Nicholas D., a guy not known to play things close to the vest, advocate concealed carry? Mysteries proliferate! … BTW, why is “Take 26” better than whatever take was the official release? How is it different?

    1. Didn’t know that ad was there — especially sad and ironic considering the horrible and stupid tragedy of John Lennon’a death. As for that take of the song — it’s the version before they slowed it down and distorted Lennon’s voice.

      1. I’m sure you didn’t know it would be there. It could be that I was targeted (pun not intended but very appropriate) because I live in Alaska, one of the reddest states in the Union. … Didn’t know that about Take 26. … Right now, somewhere, there’s a young garage band whose members admire The Beatles and who are looking for a name.
