So on wednesday after I got out of work, I took my car in to get the oil changed, and also to meet Vanessa so we could eat some dinner and I could pick up The Beatles: Rock Band. I had finally made up my mind that I was going to take the plunge and pick up the limited edition since I didn’t own the previous Rock Band sets.
Boy was I in for a big surprise. I only played a few songs later that evening, but I was having TOO MUCH FUN! It wasn’t until friday night that I really got into it. Vanessa was here, so she got introduced to more Beatles tunes. Me being the cheesy nerd that I am, serenaded her to “I Feel Fine” and “8 Days A Week”. Yes, I sang those for her.
She was mystified by the bizarreness that is “I Am The Walrus” and I explained that that’s the point. It’s not supposed to make a lot of sense. Although it’s damn fun to sing along with. I myself have found myself playing “Hello, Goodbye” and “Don’t Let Me Down” over and over. “Here Comes The Sun” and “Octopus’ Garden” as well.
So yesterday I finally broke out the drum set, and I was trying to put it together. I have pretty much no common fucking sense, and while trying to figure out how to put the pipes together with the instructions, Vanessa put them together with ease. I’m just so damn lucky to have her. The drums are definitely going to take me a while to get used to, but they’re fun.
Friday night I introduced her to The Beatles’ greatest film, Help! That flick is so bizarre and awesome that I loved it right after my Dad first showed it to me in 1996. Vanessa knew who The Beatles were, and I’m sure she’d heard some of their music before, but now I’m glad that I got to share my love of The Beatles with her.
Rene’s song of the day: “I Feel Fine” by The Beatles.
