They were up on youtube a few years back and were really good, in some ways better than the official anthology as some interviews were more frank than what were released, unused video clips, a few topics that weren't included in the other, plus there were a few bits of music (eg the discarded "ummm" from the end of A Day In The Life) in there. 

I'd never suggest paying anything for bootlegs as you are basically paying someone for what isn't their's in the first place (and is technically illegal) .

Anyone have any ideas on what to do when you've had the week from hell, and you know next week will be pretty much the same, and you're dreading it? I know we're only at Friday night, but last Sunday I put off going to bed 'till I couldn't keep my eyes open any more, just wanting to deny that the new week is nigh, and that didn't work. Want to try something else this week - ha!

How's all the other biblers tonight?

I'd suggest doing anything fun to get your mind away from the last week, let loose and enjoy yourself fully over the weekend, forget what might happen next week and hopefully it's not as bad a week as you think it will be Emily 

I'm currently sitting watching the Scotland friendly football match against the USA (currently 0-0 and not very inspiring) whilst the Top 10 Doctor Who Enemies on BBC 3 records.

Yesterday i saw a doctor who told me i could take a medicine as he didn't know what was in it. There's professionalism for you.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Emily, I hate that you are feeling that way. Find yourself some distractions this weekend that will help you get your mind off the week past and the week to come. Go to a busy location and do some people watching. Lose your self in a book at the library. Clean out and organize your closet and your sock drawer. Walk through your neighborhood imagining the houses/buildings being a different color and different trees/flowers/shrubbery; mentally decorate them the way you would if you lived there. Count how many steps there are from point a to point b. Find shapes in the clouds. Bake cookies and share them with a friend.

I'm not sure, but I believe you are not of drinking age? That means a drunken stupor is out of the question.
A few techniques that have worked for me (aside from the aforementioned stupor) are... 

  • Imagine your mind is a chalkboard with all of your troubles written on it. Slowly erase them.
  • Imagine your mind is a window looking out on to all of your troubles. Slowly pull the shade down/close the curtains.
  • Starting at your toes, tell your body to go to sleep (go to sleep toes - go to sleep feet - go to sleep ankles, etc...). It is incredible how relaxing this one can be.

They sound too simple, but really work. Hope that helps.

I try and remember each CD on my Beatle shelf in order and that usually puts me to sleep - I NEVER make it to Starr, I usually fall asleep somewhere in McCartney :)

It can also help to focus on some cool things you will be doing next month, and let next week take care of itself.

Thanks for your advice everyone. Some very good suggestions apple01apple01

I'm going out for a bit today. Maybe into town, do some shopping or something. I dunno. We'll see where my feet take me.

Good luck, Emily. I also find that journalling almost always helps me.

Yeah, i've been doing this for nearly 8 years. Helps a lot getting my thoughts down on paper - tho not always easy looking back over them.

I used to have a diary but after a very short time I became incredibly bored with it and became too lazy.

 

Wow this week was weird. I had a fight with a colleague, I passed another exam, and I randombly bought a keyboard. Yes people, the next Mozart has stood up. So far, besides the stuff I could play already, I've managed to teach myself the intro of Strawberry Fields Forever and the outro of Let It Be.

I also went out last Thursday, with some classmates. It was really a lot of fun and I had a chat with some guy who asked me for my number. We've been talking all day on Whatsapp and now he asked me out on a date! Ha. I'm actually kind of excited.

Anyway, it was fun, but my train home only went at 5.15 and I was all alone. And damn, a train station at night isn't a nice place. Also, I went by foot instead of bike to the trainstation, because I didn't dare to leave my bike there all night, so when I finally got back into my city, I had to walk all the way back to my house. It's not a long walk, but I made it long, because I tried to avoid all the creepy streets and dark corners as much as possible. I only slept for 3 hours and that afternoon I had to work again. I'll never do it again that way.

Glad you got home safely. Hope the guy turns out to be a keeper...even if not for romance at least for friendship.

I think you were very sensible in avoiding the more dangerous routes home even if it took longer than normal. Far better taking an extra 10 minutes and ensuring your safety then risking it to be home a little earlier.

 

Enjoy you're date. Hopefully you have a good time.

I went into the city and had a look around the shops, bought myself a jumper, and then went and found a particular world-known coffee shop, where I hogged a seat for as long as I dared. Then I just went for a walk without doing anything especially. It was freezing though, so I came home after a few hours. I enjoyed it, though. I'm going to make the effort to get out more in future.

Thanks again, everyone heart

Well, I'm glad you enjoyed you time wandering. It helps me to get outside of myself, so to say, to go and see other people busy at life.

We Americans are told (I'm not going to assume anymore that we are being taught correctly...I  learned my lesson on that one earlier on the forum) that it is acceptable in Europe to linger at a table in a restaurant or coffee shop. The other day after a meeting up in OKC, I went to Applebee's for a late lunch. I wasn't in a big hurry so I took my time reading the Paul McCartney special issue of Rolling Stone while slowly savoring my meal. I felt like the waitress was trying to shuffle me out of the door even though the place was only 1/3 full. I'm sure there were open tables in her section for more customers/more tips.

Well it was a Staurday morning so quite busy. When it's cold people like to come inside and get warmed up for a bit before carrying on with their shopping. There were one or two empty tables but not many, and the queue was almost out the door.

The queue for that coffee shop's drive thru window in my town spills out onto the street sometimes. Luckily it is a minor side side street and not a main road.

I never go to said coffee shop while I am in the U.S., but it is an almost daily part of our trips when we are in large European cities. There's always one near by and we do a lot of walking so it is easy to pop in.

I love them more than I wish I did, if I'm honest. I do support little buisnesses too, but their coffee (and cake) is nice - if overpriced.
