The Revolver version is about that length. I've no idea about the fade-out during the solo though. Sounds interesting.

Funny interview. Love how George misbehaves by blowing smoke into the mic and Paul gets him to stop and then later on tells George to stop talking about Russia. A good example of Paul trying to be professional and the others not giving a stuff.

I'm quite bothered by the snow actually, well, more by the ice.

I was planning on filming my trainroute to school to show you the boring area where I live and the snow, but then I realized it was..well..too boring.

Scoop it all up, shove it in a freezer or 10 and send it Special Delivery to West Scotland. I expect delivery in 2 to 3 days.a-hard-days-night-john-1

Did the Beatles, or any one of them, ever write a song about snow?

I don't know about that..

Meanmistermustard, you can have all the snow you want. Cycling AND driving is horrible right now. Snow is only fun when you don't need to go anywhere and can just stay home and make snowmen and have snowfights and all.

There are not enough streetlights in this shithole and they only spread salt on the bigger roads, so walking home from the trainstation is a real treat. Tuesday I fell three times. Luckily a lot of it is gone now, so it's a bit safer.

Oh I don't mind a White Christmas. I'd LOVE a White Christmas. It rained during Christmas over here.

Right now it's not Christmas though, and I'd like the snow to dissapear soon.

 

On the news they showed clips of the weather forecast in America and it was pretty funny. It was 11 degrees (Celcius) over there and they were complaining it was cold, while over here it has been -14 already.

Here in London, it snowed through most of yesterday, which was great because here it mostly snows through the night, so you never really get to see snow fall properly like we did yesterday. It wasn't very think though, not thick enough for snowmen or anything.

Christmas here was just rainy. All week.

Is the snow bad in Scotland, MMM?

I do enjoy a good snow storm if I don't have to drive in it. It gives me a very cozy feeling watching the snow fall while reading a good book and sipping a hot beverage. Also, my wife, my dog and I enjoy walking while a light fluffy snow is falling.

But, like all good things that come to an end, I then have to go out and clear it from the driveway. *sigh*

Bikelock28, Not in the west (not to be confused with Western Scotland which is way up in the Highlands) but there has been a bit elsewhere, i think in the east. Its mostly down in England and Wales. We had a couple of very brief flurries earlier but nothing to get excited about.

Always amuses me how most countries carry on when it snows yet in the UK there is chaos and panic from those in char from many and the transport system grinds to a halt.

Chicago hasn't gotten any good snow this year, or last year. I walked to and from school yesterday without a coat on. The few years before last we still had snow in April. I miss that. There's this snowboarding place by my house which gets fake snow, but it's not the same.paul-mccartney

I really dislike fake snow, just as much as fake christmas trees. Yuch!

On a more frightening level the bbc report that an armed man got on stage and tried to fire a gun at Ahmed Dogan, leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party. Thankfully the gun misfired and the attacker was taken down by security chiefs.

Dont know anything about what is going on in Bulgaria but horrifying.

I'm happy to help - glad you like it. mal-evans

We are due for another 4 to 6 inches overnight - I will turn on a fan and point it in a Northeasterly direction (taking a right at Greenland). It should be there by Wednesday.

On fake snow:  I hate those scenes in movies that otherwise spend like 100 million $$$ on production, but you can tell the snow falling, and the snow on the ground is phony.  They pay all this money to experts to create a phony snow that is supposed to look real, but even a non-expert like me can tell it doesn't look like the real thing.

But back in the good old days of cinema (1960s-70s), directors actually waited for a real snowy day, or went to a clime where there was real snow.

The best use of snow in a film, in my opinion, is the Roman Polanski film The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967).  Not only were the scenes out in the countryside filled with snow beautiful -- filmed somewhere in Austria I believe -- but there's a long scene where one man is chasing another on the various sloping rooftops of a medieval building complex, all covered with pristine snow that becomes messed up for the first time by their footstops and slipping and sliding as they run (or leap) from one rooftop to the next -- all in the blue moonlight.

That is NOT just in the UK. Yesterday my friend celebrated her Birthday and walking was too far and cycling was impossible, so we HAD to go by bus. Half of the buses were cancelled so we still had to walk quite a bit anyway. And I'm not even sure yet if I'll be able to go to school by train tomorrow. That is always what annoys me. Today the trains were either cancelled or delayed for half an hour or so. Fortunately I didn't have to go anywhere today so I could just sit inside and chill a bit, which was good since I was a bit hungover (oops)

Oh and my mom and me started on a diet. Don't think I'm fat, I'm not, but my belly is a bit..flabby.

Fearless Vampire Killers!  Haven't thought of that one in a long while, loved that movie.

Here in North Carolina we had a week of rain that ended with a drop in temperature and consequently some snow.  There was a chance of a thunder snowstorm -- and aside from the lightning and thunder, think of how hard it can rain during a thunderstorm and translate that to snow...THAT would have been exciting. 

Locally, depending on where your locally was (the mountains, mostly), folks got up to a foot of snow.  Most places (including mine), more like 1-2." 

Like everywhere else I've ever lived (most of the New England states, where snow is to be expected), the pre-storm raid on milk and bread shelves at the supermarket went off just as expected.

I don't know why, but I find something comforting in the idea that a snowstorm prediction always results in a run on milk and bread, like all is right in the world, you know?
