a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Nice mix of national historical information and family history. I learned something.

Cheers.  On a Beatles-related note, my first school day trip away from the family was to Liverpool.  We were all mad Beatles fans, teachers included, so we did a tour of some of the fan spots (this was around 1967) - it was great to see many of the places that were usually just on the news.  I've been trying to track down my photos, I had the first use of the family's old black & white, but no luck so far.

Oh, man, what a field trip. We always just went to the Pink Palace in Memphis. I did like the pencils with the little rocks in the clear tube near the eraser from the gift shop though.

When I taught school in Memphis, I don't know how we got away with this one, but we took the students to a theme park with rides and shows, etc. called Opryland in Nashville.

Those sound like some awesome field trips. 

When I was in school they mostly took us New Orleans museums or the zoo or somewhere in Mobile,AL; however, in 4th grade the took us to the state capital to spend the whole day there which was cool. I had more fun in New Orleans though. a-hard-days-night-george-9 

I found your history, both family and national, very interesting trcanberra. Learning something new everyday. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Good luck, em!

And now for something completely different...

In a different thread, fabfouremily mentioned her distaste for adverts on television. Recently, I had been thinking about how target marketing has followed me throughout my lifetime - I have always loved watching TV. When I was a kid watching Scooby-Doo cartoons (yes folks, the original series from 1969!) I remember commercials for sugary breakfast cereals and whatever "gotta-have-it" toys/games were being sold during that particular Christmas season. Later in my childhood/young adulthood came the adverts for acne creams, latest fashions, music, etc.... Now I'm watching shows that have commercials for the HurryCane, attorneys who want to sue on my behalf for bad hip replacements and remedies for erectile dysfunction. I am quite delighted to say that I require none of the above but God, I miss those sugary cereal commercials!

How about this one Zig?

That's tremendous. My wife is horrifically afraid of clowns, so if I tried to show this to her, she might divorce me, so I'll leave it alone.

But since we're on the subject of creepy clowns in commercials...

For the non-Americans, this clown is actually Willard Scott, a well known U.S. meteorologist.

^^This might turn into a phobia conversation like we had about bananas.

Changing topic:

Hold the presses. I think we have been going about this the wrong way. You know that old saying, "If you can't beat them, join them?" We need to get meanmistermustard hired on as an Apple executive. If they don't have any positions open, we need to convince the management team that mmm is very talented and that they should create a position just for him. We must convince them that they really, really NEED him.

I never understood how anyone could be afraid of clowns. After looking at the vid posted by mmm, I totally get it.

Yikes.

Are you talking about getting clowns into Apple to teach them things? There are plenty there already going by how they do things so we don't want to give them ideas. Next up we will be getting exclusive official extra long Beatle clown shoes, joke flowers and noses that honk when pushed. Anyway i'm looking forward to paying $15 for a 2014 official Yellow Submarine Pencil Sharpener, really makes up for not hearing Carnival Of Light.

And you can't say Apple aren't finding new ways to make money, they have found a way to get fans to pay £7 for a bit of cardboard (see the On Air, Live At The BBC Vol. 2 thread).

The talk of cereal commercials remind me of a spoof in one of my favorite movies, "Putney Swope" (directed by Robert Downey, Sr.).

 

 

 

If only all commercials could be so frank.

See, you feed them all these ideas of yours that go along with the way they think (you have such great, funny ones) so that they start liking you a lot and find you invaluable. But, that's just your cover story. Since you are a trusted, wonderful employee they give you the combination to the vault. You then raid the vault at night, make copies of all the precious material, and then slip them back into the vault before anyone misses them. Once you have your mission accomplished, you can wreak whatever havoc on them you wish.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Kenny Everett did that a number of years ago with a few acetates which were eventually bootlegged so it's certainly possible.

Sadly i'd talk too much sense when speaking about projects, like a song promo's dvd or a deluxe album boxsets with outtakes or, dare we go there, a Let It Be dvd (shhhhh!!) with sensible price points being charged, so i'd get fired. 

Going the other way might actually see them in production and being sold and i couldn't live knowing such crap had actually been licensed.

Well, for mmm's sanity and peace of mind, ASJ we do need all those talented family members of yours with their heavy equipment to help with Operation Apple Vault Storm.
