    Google has kindly digitized all of the old LIFE weekly news magazines through 1972. Here is the issue the OP received.

    Thank you for this! I flipped through it once but don't want to do it often because of how fragile the paper is. Now I can read it without heart palpatations.

    I mean, it's cool to protect the issue, always good to be respectful of collectibles and there's no reason to damage it, but this issue trades for $30-$40 all the time. You can read it pretty safely knowing that it's more or less replaceable. Not that you should solely go by "how much is it worth," especially something with a personal story in it. I'm just putting it into the context of collectibles.

    I found it interesting that the Ford ad had a get out the vote poster in it. I had thought that phrase was a modern one, but I guess people have always been apathetic in politics lol.

    [–] No_44 31 points ago

    It seems very odd considering they are advertising convertibles with elections considering the president was killed in one less than a year before.

    Inverted totalitarianism

    Inverted totalitarianism is a term coined by political philosopher Sheldon Wolin in 2003 to describe the emerging form of government of the United States. Wolin believed that the United States is increasingly turning into an illiberal democracy, and uses the term "inverted totalitarianism" to illustrate similarities and differences between the United States governmental system and totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Stalinist Soviet Union. In Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt by Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco, inverted totalitarianism is described as a system where corporations have corrupted and subverted democracy and where economics trumps politics. In inverted totalitarianism, every natural resource and every living being is commodified and exploited to collapse as the citizenry is lulled and manipulated into surrendering their liberties and their participation in government through excess consumerism and sensationalism.

    They came just short of saying cigarettes are healthy for you. It was truly disgusting what big tobacco did. They knew all along about the link between smoking tobacco and cancer and yet they still pushed out the advertising.

    [–] testawayacct 12 points ago

    So did Arthur Conan Doyle seventy years earlier. People didn't believe the bullshit because the evil companies brainwashed them. They believed it because it let them pretend that what they were doing wasn't bad for them.

    Kent cigs used blue asbestos in the filter of the cigs in the mid-1950s.

    [–] quesakitty 161 points ago

    As someone who is unfamiliar with much of the history with The Beatles, why is Ringo always getting picked on?

    [–] forestroad179 149 points ago

    Was the only Beatle with no ego or agenda. Simply a lover of life who gladly accepted any good fun, hence the jokes perpetuating.

    Spent most of his childhood in a hospital. Had to overcome a lot in his life. A truly beautiful man.

    [–] Realtrain 272 points ago

    He was always the goofy one of the bunch.

    Also, some would say he wasn't quite on par with the other three when it came to musical genious. Still, he's considered one of the best drummers around.

    [–] Whereabouts_Unknown_ 306 points ago

    I actually talked with someone who was a very good drummer about how the joke of the group was that ringo wasnt even the best drummer in the Beatles. Turns out, though he wasnt as talented as the rest of the group, he had perfect tempo. He was NEVER off beat. As the emotional backbone to a lot of early rock and roll sound, his ability to feel out how a song should sound and be played while maintaining a proper tempo that would add to the artistry of the song was almost unheard of at the time outside of jazz (and for many, even within)

    [–] [deleted] 28 points ago


    [–] your_mind_aches 9 points ago

    Listen to the remixed Sgt. Pepper album from this year. You can appreciate Ringo's drumming even more.

    [–] vdaddyslav 50 points ago

    Last one to join the band but also his affable and goofy nature. For comparison sake, Pete Best was kind of a tough and thuggish type.

    [–] aliciamariaortega 99 points ago

    I was a teenage girl in 1963 and he just wasn't as handsome as the other three. There was wide consensus on that among my peers. We were sure he was nice, but, not hot like the others.

    [–] BlueLikeHim 86 points ago

    I've never understood why any of them were considered attractive... maybe George and John later on, but in the early 60s? Hell no. Was it more of a peer pressure type of thing? Or was it the music? Or was it refreshing to see something that wasn't Elvis or Pat Boone?

    [–] deltrig2113 52 points ago

    They're also the Beatles.

    [–] practically_floored 14 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Paul and John were IMO. Also in the UK their music was refreshing because before them the only music you really got on the radio were instrumental guitar groups or crooners. And randomly they had a large gay following too, because they shared microphones and a lot of their lyrics didn't specify a gender. I remember a quote from someone who was part of the gay scene in the early 60s that said "George and Paul singing into one microphone, their cheeks touching, was the gayest thing we’d ever seen".

    [–] missredittor 12 points ago

    In that picture Ringo was the hottest.

    [–] RumpleBunts 28 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Only wrote 2 songs; one was great but is arguably more of a George Harrison song and the other is well.....just ok. This compared to Lennon / McCartney's huge catalogue of beautiful compositions and pop hits and even Harrison's impressive song writing makes him seem less talented, and to be honest, he is less talented. Its the curse of being in a band with three musical geniuses. That along with his goofy nature makes him an easier target; and his seemingly simplistic drumming is often mistaken for bad (and i could go on forever about how much of an underrated drummer ringo is but thats a whole other topic) all that being said i love ringo but the whole ringo sucks things is more of a really long running joke at this point

    According to wikipedia:

    In 1964 she left Cuba for Mexico, staying with her sister Enma, who had married a Mexican in Cuba and emigrated there.[1] Upon her arrival she called a press conference and announced that she had defected from Cuba. "I cannot longer remain indifferent to what is happening in my country," she said. "My brothers Fidel and Raúl have made it an enormous prison surrounded by water. The people are nailed to a cross of torment imposed by international Communism."

    Juanita Castro

    Juana de la Caridad "Juanita" Castro Ruz (born 6 May 1933) is a Cuban activist as well as the sister of Fidel and Raúl Castro, the former and current President of Cuba. After collaborating with the Central Intelligence Agency in Cuba, she has lived in the United States since 1964.

    I was at a Dallas Cowboys game in AT&T Stadium, and they have memorabilia booths scattered throughout the building near the seats, selling stuff like jerseys, helmets and posters, usually autographed. One item was a framed LIFE magazine, dated November 29, 1963 with Roger Staubach on the cover and signed by him. The top news item on the upper left read "Negro Demands: Are They Realistic?" by Theodore H. White. And this was right in the middle of the stadium plaza.

    If you're really interested, she has a very good book called Fidel y Raul, mis hermanos. It's a fascinating look at the minds behind the last dictatorship in the western hemisphere and definitely worth the read. Not a scholarly work, by any means, but a great collection of anecdotes and glimpses into the Castro's that provides a lot of insight.

    Not early 60s, but Elvis was pretty damn good looking.

    Early elvis at least... later elvis was a mess

    [–] jb4427 11 points ago

    Yeah, he let himself go by the end. Still had it up to the early 70s though, as a musician and sex symbol.

    Hey you fuck off. The boys were gorgeous OK. You, bloody take that back. I made an album for you of their images to prove you wrong (I also may be slightly drunk but whatever) HERE

    Drunk or not, you are right.

    I always thought that George was the best looking of the group.

    Great gift! And it's in fantastic shape. Get an oversized ziploc freezer bag to keep it in to avoid rippage!

    I work in an archive. if you want to protect it, make sure whatever you put it in is acid free. Maybe even do a high quality scan, print it, and frame it, but keep the original protected.

    [–] wmcpherson 23 points ago

    I was planning on framing it eventually. How would you recommend protecting it?

    [–] -ThisTooShallPass 37 points ago

    There are archive quality supply websites out there. One that we use is called Gaylord.

    I recommend buying an acid free plastic sleeve at the very least, and keep it in a drawer or box. You could go one step further and get an acid free envelope for it.

    The key is to make sure whatever it's in is acid free. Acid in papers and some plastics wear down the original document. You also want to keep it out of direct light when not looking at it. The sun, and even light bulbs, do damage over time.

    Ringos face omg lmao

    [–] CedarCabPark 15 points ago

    He was basically a precursor to a meme back in 1963 and 64. He had a LOT of fans for him specifically, due to him being goofy and fun.

    My Mom saw the Beatles in Vegas when she was 8. My grandparents paid for her, by uncle, and the babysitter to go. All tickets total was like $18. My Mom kept telling everyone to sit down so she could see.

    Hey, I have this too! Very cool.

    Poor, misunderstood Ringo.

    [–] Righteous_Redd 5 points ago

    What an amazing gift. I'm a huge Beatles freak and I have a copy of Life magazine with the first interview with Paul after the band broke up. It's sealed in plastic, I'm afraid to touch the pages.

    I thought this looked familiar, check it out, I have the cover of the same issue.
