The pithy, opinionated, and sometimes brutally frank Heinz-Ulrich von Boffke challenges average guys to live a life less ordinary and embrace classic style in the broadest sense. it's time to rise above the trite, the boring, the predictable, the mundane, the banal, and the commonplace. It's time to stop behaving like barnyard animals at the trough and leave behind the perpetually sloppy man-child aesthetic of the last two decades or so. It's time to learn once again how to present and conduct yourself like an adult with some grooming, finesse, and sophistication. And here is where you can learn how.

The Birth of Power Pop: The Beatles with Paperback Writer


Douglas said...

What a delight! I enjoy all these songs and artists. I respectfully nominate the following that you may already be familiar with:
The Easybeats: Friday on my mind
The Small faces: Sha la la la lee
The Hollies: I can't let go
The Choir: It's cold outside
and later in the 1960's, the Move: Fire Brigade

Best wishes from Philadelphia

What a delight it was to hear the Beatles pronounce the word "writer" with a "t", unlike the sloppy pronunciation that makes the word indistinguishable from the word "rider".

Thank you for your comments, men. And I must agree on the observation about pronunciation of vowels and consonants. Regional variations are wonderful, and I certainly don't expect us to speak like 1930s and 40s BBC radio and newsreel announcers. But good God have we become sloppy with regards to speech habits in the 21st century U.S.!
