Following on from my last-musically inspired post, I’m putting it out there: the Beatles are overrated.
I’m not trying to downplay their impact on pop culture. I’m not saying they were not groundbreaking. I’m not detracting from their talent.
I’m just saying they’re not for me. I like a few songs but overall, the Beatles are not a group that tickles my musical fancy. Yet it has taken me a lifetime to find ONE other person on this earth who shares my view. I find it baffling that the Beatles are so universally dug, to be honest.

Quote of the week: “Sometimes I desperately want to sit in the center of Barnes and Nobles and cut the word “sorry” out of every single dictionary in stock. Because it is a word I’ve misunderstood. It is a five letter word that I have used, time & time again, as a strike against me.” From Hannah at As Simple As That.
And my read of the week: a fascinating yet incredibly disturbing Reddit thread (not for the faint) offering insights into the minds of rapists and sexual abusers. One of the saddest is a post from a person whose brother was a child abuser, and now had kids of their own and is afraid to let him be around them.
