They say that your favorite Beatle says something about you as a person.  They say fans of Paul are perfectionists, focused on business matters, while Lennon aficionados are said to be dreamers.  Fans of George are concerned with the metaphysical, so the reasoning goes, while Ringo fans love the underdog and octupuses in gardens and such.  While I appreciate each member individually I’m sort of a John man, myself, though I realize that he was a pretty large jerk in real life, leading to today’s Liverpudlian query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) also likes Mike Nesmith, the John-analogue member of The Monkees, wool hat or no wool hat, asking: Which of the Fab Four is your favorite Beatle?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I can’t say that I have enough familiarity with them individually to make a call, so I’m going to approach it slightly differently. The first Beatle that I recognized & could identify was Ringo, thanks to a childhood enjoyment of the film “Caveman,” so I’ll go with him.

  2. Not a huge fan of the Fab Four generally. I suppose i’d say Ben Grimm, who doesn’t love a big gruff lug with a heart of gold.

    I’m sorry, what was the question again?
