the beatles took the train

a lot of people keep asking me why i named the blog “to take the train.”  i’ll try to explain the best way i know how.  a lot of the old movies i love have great train scenes (“hard day’s night”, “north by northwest”, “butch cassidy”, “from russia with love”).  back then when you traveled by train it wasn’t just a means of transportation but an experience.  all the people in these movies would meet interesting people or be put in interesting situations.  on top of that the trains were always associated with elegance.  they had nice sleeping quarters and dining cars.  i originally thought i would name it “take the train”, but takethetrain.com is being held for ransom, so i settled on totakethetrain.com.  i hope i explained it enough.
