It's the only logical thing to do.

Also, holy crap do you have a lot of posts for only being here two months. I mean, Look At Me.

Heh - nothing wrong with being one of 'the quiet ones' :)

 

My posts went up fast too.   Some of us have a lot to say!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

Often about 1 Beatle and their plans for him. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

It's good to have the forum active with fun discussions, go on some other Beatle forums and they are half dead with 2 or 3 posts a day at times! Nothing wrong with that, just nice to be somewhere enjoyable and lively and talk Beatles.

Sounds painful. 

 Hopefully there will be a way to put the pieces back together again - and not the king's horses or king's men, they were useless. Tho why anyone thought a horse would be helpful is a mystery. The hooves would only be a hindrance.

After adding a comment just this morning on the Best looking Beatle thread that Paul makes my brain a tangled beretta, I get this author's name on a book I am working on :

Oh, my. I guess I am living up to the name my aunt gave me when I was 2 years old: Chatty Cathy. I started talking and didn't stop. If'n I need to get the duct tape, let me know.

For those involved in the conversation earlier about living alone or with other people, here are some words from Paul:

"I've got plenty of time of my own"

"Alone in her apartment she'd dwell"

"You never need to worry about me, I'll be fine on my own
Someone else can worry about me
I've spent a lot of time on my own
I've spent a lot of time on my own"

COLDEST stadium I ever went to. Me and my parents went to a Phillies-Giants day game in July, thinking it'll be warm, right? (We were transplated newbies to the Bay.) Wrong. It was maybe 55 degrees and nevermind the wind chill.

I just finished teaching a section of our UNIV 101 course. Our random fact for the day ended up being : there are only 2 jobs listed in the Occupational Outlook Handbook that pay $75k or more that require only a high school diploma or its equivalent. Of those two, only the job of Nuclear Power Reactor Operator doesn't require any work experience in a related occupation.

Why are we talking duct tape? A quiet word with her internet suppliers, work place and hubby and then peace for a longer term. A little bit more work but for a bigger pay-off. Yeay. 

[Only joking, place wouldnt be the same without you Ahh Girl.]

 

In all seriousness surely if someone is an operator at a Nuclear Power Reactor then you want them to have previous related work experience in case anything goes wrong. Don't want a repeat of this

Thank you, MMM.

The first thing one student piped up and said was, "So that's why we had Chernobyl."

The OOH lists "Musicians and Singers" as needing a high school diploma or its equivalent and indicates they make $22.39 per hour. However, they don't list ROCK STAR as an occupation. I guess the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics didn't want to try to define and put parameters around that category.

Good news everyone, I have finally bought a copy of the 'Concert for George'. My plans on Christmas day are:

Watch Concert for George,
Try not to cry,
Cry a lot

Poor Dhani, he looked so lost up there :(

Well that's John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr and a whole load of others knackered then isnt it? Load of nonsense.

Now that you mention it, the BLS could use a picture of the Beatles as the definition of "rock star" in the OOH. I'd like to see some of the newer singers live up to that standard.

Somewhat (not really) relating to the Concert for George, I particularly enjoy watching live performances of the different Beatles post-1966. It's such a different environment for them and I find it interesting to see how their work translates live. Paul, of course, has grown used to the stage, but what I like the most is watching the Concert for Bangladesh. Seeing George, Ringo, Clapton, Dylan, etc. up there for the first rock benefit concert is truly inspiring. Seeing George sing stuff like Something seems like the closest we would come to seeing a Beatles live performance in the '70s. Leaves it to your imagination what a full reunion would have been like.

I think "Bangladesh" and "Concert for George" are two of the best concerts on film, each an epic for its era and each well-rehearsed and so well played - well, apart from Ringo messing up the words of the only song he had to do :)

The 2xDVD sets of each are also great.

With all the heavy hitters he was on stage with, and as young as he was, no wonder. I really think he was up there as a token to George, because on musical merit he hadn't earned it yet. If Concert for George was to happen today, he'd fight right in and his band (newno2) would be a featured highlight. Then? Not so much.
