It’s a cool place, and they say it gets harder

You’re bundled up now, wait ‘til you get better

A lot of people are asking why i used a picture of Paul McCartney for my mashup of John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
I thought the answer was obvious. Paul McCartney IS John Lennon
Everyone knows that the original Paul McCartney died some time in the 1960s and was replaced by a double. But I guess you only know half the story. When choosing a replacement impostor they realized that only one person knew Paul and his mannerisms well enough to convincingly portray him: John Lennon in facial prosthetics.
Obviously they could never be seen together in public. This is why the Beatles stopped performing and became a studio-only band (John playing Paul’s parts via multitracking techniques which quickly proved creatively revolutionary.) Nonetheless, the magic act was very taxing on John, and the Beatles eventually had to split up so he could perform both lives separately.
When he was non-fatally wounded by a bullet in 1980, he realized he was at a crossroads. He had come to enjoy his life and career as Paul McCartney, who was at an all time creative high with hits like “Temporary Secretary" and "Wonderful Christmastime”. And so, he faked his death as John Lennon and assumed the role of Paul full time.
So next time you’re mourning the premature loss of the great songwriter John Lennon, just think about him in 1985, healthily and contentedly singing “Spies Like Us" under 20 pounds of Hollywood makeup.

catsandnailpolish asked: You used Paul McCartney in that picture when you meant to use John Lennon

D’oh! Also, don’t know if anyone noticed this, but the vocal tracks are not John Lennon singing; they are from a Matchbox 20 song (called “Hey Now”). My bad.

Figured it was about time to show off my sexy bass!
Neil and I designed this about a year ago, and had a lot of fun with it.
My goal is to some day get it signed by the Hulkster!

I was just thinking about how cool this is

Anonymous asked: This is a pretty good argument for anyone who's ever wondered why people would dare pretend to be nonbinary, trans, ethnic or otherwise on this site. As you can see, unless you possess some sort defining social disadvantage yourself, you're incapable of ever doing anything right (even making fun of yourself!) without oppressing someone.

people usually do that to troll or sow dissent or whatever machiavelli-wannabe shit they think they’re accomplishing. I am none of the above and nobody’s ever given me any trouble other than helpful criticism. Just don’t be a lily-livered asshole about it and you’ll be fine, the end

Anonymous asked: White people making fun of white people isnt appropriation. But it IS a way for white people to distance themselves from 'those other white people' which is inappropriate. Its important to remember that as a white person your work of unlearning racism is never done, and its not your place to distance yourself from whiteness in that way.

Yes, This.

basically strive to be more self-aware and conscientious, but don’t use your marginal efforts as an excuse to go on some narcissism of small differences ego trip. I’ve fallen in that trap before!!
