My Wall of Fame (or how to cover ugly wallpaper) or (so YOU think YOU'RE a Beatles' fan) Part I

Recently I posted a photo of my latest decorating scheme, bald black babies with earrings:



And then Doug at Taunt Vortex inquired about the record on the wall. So I said, WTF, I'll share my Wall of Fame with the Internet. These line the stairway going up to the second floor:












Of course, every Beatles' fan has to have the Peter Max ties:



This is a 78 called Boogie Blues by Gene Krupa and his Orchestra. Unlike the other things on my wall, it has no meaning to me whatsoever. But it's a 78 and it's kind of cool.


























And the glitter shoe above John, it's mine. Haven't worn it in awhile though am waiting...waiting...wainting...to wear it again.

Stay tuned for Part II where Meg's Wall of Fame includes something other than the Fab Four. Yeah, I am nothing if not versitile.

OK, you've convinced me - you're a fan. Wait, this is Part 1? There's more? You're a superfan!

My daughters are very angry at you for having pictures of THEIR Beatles on your wall. LOL

I like the Gene Krupa record. The Beatles? Eh. (Kidding, of course, what kind of human being would I be if I didn't like The Beatles? A freak, that's what.) Look forward to Part II.

Okay, you win.

But somewhere I've got a tie that's has some original Lennon art on it. Well, it's a reproduction of course, but it's a copy of a painting of his.

But it's not really work appropriate, since it's got little naked people creatures on it.

Meg, that is incredibly cool! I have been a huge Beatles fan since I discovered the Sgt Pepper album at age 6 and played it for the ENTIRE summer of 1969. This is not an exaggeration as my mother could have told you (the only record player we had was in the living room).

Can't wait to see Part II!

I have seen the wall of fame in person and the photos do not do it justice!

I totally love all the Beatles paraphernalia. I had a lot of it when I was younger and was stupid enough to give it away over time.
