Aaahh, I own an original copy of The White Album!! (number 103 642, to be precise) Slight query that I'm sure some of you here will be able to resolve: I thought that the only version of it where you take the lp out of the top were those released in New Zealand, but with mine (which says was sold in the UK), you also take it out of the top, rather than at the side. Is this just a mistake that I've made? Were all originals made with the slit at the top?

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I haven't used it, so don't know how simple it is, but Lightworks got a very good review recently on BBC Click, and is available in free and pro versions.

Well, this has been a productive Spring.  In my past, I have written many songs (pop-folk with Latin/Tropical twangs here and there) -- probably about 150 all told (with about 50 more embryonic monstrosities that can't be finished).

But funny thing, I stopped writing songs about 10 years ago.  From that point forward I just rested on my laurels, reworking my old songs, or just enjoying playing along with records.  It seemed like I would never write a new song again.

Then, Out Of The Blue, spanning from March to May of this year, I wrote five new songs I'm really proud of, reworked 3 old songs to finally put them out of their unfinished misery, and recreated covers of two famous songs (Farolito, and Guantanamera).

Hey there! Just got back from London yesterday and it was so awesome!

I've bought a lot of clothes and stuff and I've seen soooo much! The first day we went to Camden Market, which was less special than I thought. All those shops were the same. If you had seen one you had seen them all. Next day we went to do some sightseeing. We walked through Hyde Park to Buckingham Palace to see the change of guards and we saw the whole friggin royal family leaving the palace! Then we went to the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and all that. Then we went to Trafalgar Quare and went into the National Gallery (where I accidentally but not really took a picture of the floor), then we went to Tate Modern, which I didn't really like. Then we walked over the Millennium Bridge to St Paul's Cathedral, but didn't go in there because it was damn expensive. You could also see Tower Bridge while going over the Millennium Bridge. Wednesday we first went to Baker Street, to the Beatles store of course. Only things I bought were a Revolver shirt and a Yellow Submarine keychain. My mom bought a bag, buttons, an Abbey Road umbrella and guitarpicks for my brother. The store was awesome. Then we went to Abbey Road which was pretty ridiculous. There was a pretty long queue. I forgot to bring a sharpie so I didn't write my name on the walls of the studio gates. Some retard took a picture of us while we were crossing the road, but he was too slow so it looks really blurry, bad and there are other people on it. Then we went to Oxford Street and Regent street, which was pretty boring. Oxford street seems to have the same 5 or 6 shops throughout the whole street, whereas Regent street had a lot of expensive shops, so it wasn't really for me. We also went into Soho and some of the small little streets behind Regent Street, which were cute and pretty cool too. Yesterday we just took it easy and walked around the block of our hotel. It was only then we found out there was a Starbucks, a Subway, a McDonalds and a whole shopping centre with a Zara, H&M and stuff all just around the corner!

It was pretty awesome, but I did notice that most things were pretty similar to the Netherlands.

Things I have learned:

- London is damn expensive

-My English is better than I think

-My mom's English isn't nearly as good as she likes to think

- Dutch apparently sounds more like German than we like to think. People kept thinking we were German.

- English people are very reserved and minding their own business. 

- You CAN get sunburnt goddamnit.

-Carrying a suitcase on an escalator is hard and dangerous.

- The underground system is actually very easy

Did you go to Cavendish Ave while you were at AR?

Oh man.  I know a girl on Facebook who used to live here but has moved to London permanently (she was just travelling around before).  Instantly I became jealous of how incredibly higher her chances of meeting Paul McCartney are compared to mine, which are basically zero.  I would probably be such a stalker and hang around Cavendish all the time.  I mean, he still owns that house!
