Sachs Media Group tried to imagine what famous rock stars who died young might look like today... as you might have guessed, they attempted to imagine what John at 73 (!) might look like if he was alive today...

Looks like Steve Coogan to me. 

Here's the link to the page, as they also re-imagine Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Bob Marley, among others: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/.....lp00000592

Yeah, I posted that at the news thread. I said David Straitharn.

In Glasgow where i managed to get 3 Dylan albums from the library, including the most recent Bootleg series release 'Another Self Portrait", and a cd of Elvis tracks from 1954 - 1957. A record shop also had the Lennon Unfinished Music CD's going for £6 each which i passed up (the price tag for Two Virgins was placed over the naughty part of the covera-hard-days-night-john-6).  And then the local library had Dylan's Tempest upon its cd shelves.apple01

Love librarys.

Was everything in the right place this time? I'm glad you had a pleasant experience this time around.

It really helps me to hear you and the others who have mentioned that they are fans of their library. Sometimes the backstage, out of view of the public, day-to-day office blah, blah, blah can wear on me sometimes, but hearing happy stories like this makes me remember why I love this job.

I got to help a young man today find articles regarding the reduction of hours devoted to physical education in elementary schools so that more time can be given to subject matter instruction. Just spending that 15 minutes with him, and seeing his eyes light up when I knew he really understood the process and the key terms to use in his searches, made the edges of my mouth turn up :-) after some yucky office politics junk that occurred this week.

I don't get the bitching of libraries, the NHS, or many other things folks like to complain about. Sure they have problems and you will get the occasional foul-up but i've never had a problem myself. The staff always come across as very helpful and cheerful when talking to them and considering the amount of crap that will come their way from the powers above and some members of public its surprising they aren't more crabbit and likely to tell you to piss off. 

The idea of our joint-Government to close local libraries to save money is really stupid as for so many people they are such an important part of their lives. Why anyone would take that any and make people even more isolated from the world is beyond me. And surely we want people to be reading more, developing IT skills, meeting people thru bookclubs, and helping others do the same.

Aargh - now I'm jealous.  I have been looking for the first two to accompany my Wedding Album.  I wonder if that shop has a local subsidiary? :)

And yes, I love libraries.

[EDIT] Oh, and loved Glasgow during our 2007 Euro extravaganza; particularly Kelvin Grove museum and the Necropolis - which was just amazing.

Its a second hand record store called Missing based only in Glasgow i think but there may be a few more stores around Scotland. Give them a phone and see if they will do you free post and packaging.

 

If anyone is thinking of ever coming to Scotland 2014 is the year what with everything happening in Scotland (Independence Referendum, Commonwealth Games to name just two). You can try out our unique diet of deep fried things, irn bru, whiskey, rolls and butter/crisps, tablet and shortbread.

Found this Top 50 Beatles Songs chart and, whilst all run downs like this are totally subjective, this one isn't the normal 1. A Day In The Life, 2. Hey Jude, 3. Strawberry Fields.

I passed all my tests! All of them! I'm one of the only three students of my class who passed them all. I'm so happy I won't have to do these tests again! Geez I had already prepared myself to be studying during Christmas break but now it's not necessary and all is well again <3

The Beatles would be very proud and pleased - and then gently cheekily tease you.

Freezing rain on Friday. Power lost for about two hours on Friday night and four hours yesterday. Now this on Sunday morning. The new Girl Scout motto: keep mobile phones and laptops charged in case of power outages.
