Cheers for all the congrats about my results :) And @mmm I was in Italy when the tickets for the disco everybody was going to went out so I had no clue anything was happening. So I stayed at home while everybody got pis*ed a-hard-days-night-george-10 One of my friends didn't get into the disco she was that out of it, I think she passed out on the floor for 3 hours but she doesn't really remember what happened....

Lesson learned kids don't drink 2 naggins and 2 pints in one sitting...

 

Oh and it's 103 days 'til Christmas (yay) which raises the question should I get The Beatles Anthology book or the Living In the Material World book for Christmas...

I'm agonising over that as well!  I currently have LITMW on loan from the library and while it's good, I'm thinking it doesn't add much to the experience having already seen the film and having it on DVD to watch anytime.  I'm leaning towards Anthology - that seems to be a must-have and the sheer volume of material means you really need(!) both book and DVD.

Im agonising over the sight of seeing how many days to Christmas. If only it would all begin in December and until then it was never uttered by any human. The thought of seeing Christmas decorations in the shops or hearing Silent Night or Jingle Bells in late October/Early November is a horrifying and deeply irritating part of the year.

Christmas music is fine if played for 3 days (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day) as there are at the most 20 good songs, 12 bearable and the rest unlistenable shite. Yes I do play them on the 1st December but by the 4th i'm deeply fed up and the 5th bordering on finding the source and annihilating it. To have any of them forced down your throat for 45 days straight should be repaid in some hideous manner.

 

I would enjoy Christmas far far more if it hadn't been turned into this everyone must be jolly about it from the 1st October and adore anything they are given no matter how ghastly.

Bah bleedin' humbug.

 

On more joyous news England are introducing a 5p charge for carrier bags from supermarkets and larger shops from 2015, Scotland is doing so from October 2014. Its a major gripe of mine to see people buying 1 item and taking a carrier bag or even worse seeing them strewn across the countryside and everywhere else they are located.

Will it be ok if I choose Saturday college games instead of the pro teams on Sunday (this is if you are talking about American football)?

One that somehow went under the radar.

Jackie Lomax, who was signed to the Apple label amongst others and recorded with many music greats including 3 Beatles and Eric Clapton, died on Sunday 15th September aged 69.

 

I wonder if Sour Milk Sea has some influence on Paul considering its Get Back theme.

Surprised that hasn't been more widely reported. Another sad loss in the last few months.

First Sunday in February 2014, from New York. First Super Bowl to be played in a "cold weather" city without a roof over the stadium. And the Farmer's Almanac has already said they'll be wintry conditions that first weekend of February in that area. Looking forward to it. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Superbowl is one of the few sporting encounters I watch where I have no clue what is going on most of the time but find it incredibly interesting and, at times, exciting. Its quite an experience to sit bamboozled yet be caught up in it all.

So we lost to the Bears 31 - 30...pretty damn good game, I have to admit! I only started liking American Football last year so I don't fully understand the rules but I've got the hang of it.

"...Looking through the  bent back two lips"

Earth to cbatcu. He is singing the word *tulips*.

Hum? What's that? Oh, right. Tulips. Sorry, I had drifted into my *wishful listening* mode.

So, we're talking football. I watch the Superbowl for the commercials. During the game in 2011, there were 30 commercial sets. I wrote down all the things that were advertized, but I never went back and statistically analyzed the content. Suffice it to say, cars, beer, cell phone companies, and FOX television show were the most represented.

And all the companies who paid would have spent a fortune doing it. Tho I do remember one small business did manage to get a spot during the superbowl ads one year, it was in the news, and they somehow paid peanuts. Whilst trying to find a link to said business (I failed) I did come across reports that Inuit, a software  company, is paying for an advertising spot for a small business (still to be announced/decided which one). 

It can cost $4m dollars for a 30-add commercial!? Flippin' heck. Absolute madness.

That topic called "What are you eating right now?" made me think I'd like to start a topic called "What are you NOT eating right now?" -- needless to say, that would open up the horizons considerably (maybe too much).

But I figured that Joe and the other admins would think that was a bit too illegitimate and/or insubstantial for a topic in its own right.  Then I thought of a possible topic called "What topics would you like to create but felt they were too insubstantial to bother with?"

I don't know why, but I've always been attracted to such odd cul-de-sacs of thought; which is why I like the fiction writer Donald Barthelme so much, for his quirky gimmicky stories.

I'm just glad I have this topic here where I can desposit such dead-end musings...blue-meanie

FOX had a lot of commercials for their own shows. I wonder if it is because they couldn't sell those slots to other companies due to the outrageous price? I admit, it is the one time a year I submit to peer-pressure to watch t.v. because everyone talks about the commercials for days on end.

I grew up watching little league and high school football. I'd say I understand about 85 percent of what's going on.

Changing subjects: I saw a woman in Walmart just now with a t-shirt that said "The Bootleg Beatles." I spoke with her for a moment and told her that she would fit right in at beatlesbible.com. She said she'd check it out.heart

I wasn't sure where to put this (is there a general "Questions about The Beatles" thread for questions that aren't thread-worthy?), so I'll put it here:

In the song P.S. I Love You, there's a part where they sing "As I write this letter" and then John sings "Oh-h-h", and then they sing "Send my love to you" and then Paul sings "You know I want you to", and then they sing "Remember that I'll always" and then someone sings "Yeah". I always assumed the "Yeah" was Paul, but I just listened more closely... Is it George?
