meanmistermustard said Paul made #21 in the Billboard Rich List, reports Examiner, with $13,769,479.16. Taylor Swift was #1 with a quiet eye-blowing $39,699,575.60 I presume its for the year 2013 but if it was $13m for the tour and the rest from sales of New then this does not include royalties from his back catalogue as surely he made more than a $1m thru the Beatles and his solo work in a year. Anyone know? Oh, and who is Kenny Chesney (#2)? Only singer i know with Chesney in the name is Chesney Hawkes (that two hit wonder) – he also starred in a film called Buddy's Song which was rather good, or was that the book i'm thinking of?ahdn_paul_01

Kenny Chesney is an awesome country music singer. He grew up in East Tennessee, wetsroosa's neck of the woods. 

 

——-

For us living outside of America, we can't really relate to country artists like Kenny Chesney.  His stuff comes across as Christian Republican pro-U.S. propaganda.  Very manufactured Walmart-brand corporate social engineering, more than organic singer-songwriter stuff.

No offense meant to you personally.  It's just difficult material for non-Americans to take seriously.

No offense taken. None at all. This is the kind of thing that is fascinating to me. Do you see the songs I posted for meanmistermustart in that light? I really, really would like to know your reactions to them.

EDIT: @SatanHimself I moved this post over here in case you do want to reply so that we don't clutter up the news thread with non-Beatles news conversation.

After I thought about your post a bit, I can see how several country music artists come across the way you described. I definitely can. But, it fascinates me that Kenny Chesney would be one of them. The first song is about a young man who is living life too fast and crazy and needs to slow down. Ha! Perhaps that is an U.S.-centric trait. The second song is so sweet. A old bartender helps a young man realize that he needs to go home and make up with his wife. The third song is about the experiences of growing up in a small town.

However, if you see Kenny or any of those three songs a different way, I'd love to see your perspective.

testing, trying to figure out how to do an attachment

my-avatar.jpeg

Well, this picture is in this post somehow as an attachment. I did the whole select file and upload process. I don't know how to get one "attached" at the bottom like Joe did. Anyone else figured it out?

EDIT: Once I saved the edited post, I saw the attachment thing. I didn't see it when I sent an attachment in a PM. Very interesting.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Finally, something other than a Heal/Hurt thread has appeared!

First, Let me try attaching something (though it seems to have already worked for you)

So this should be an mp3 of The End, to test mmm's question about downloads (right now it's just a pale orange square).

yellow-submarine.jpg

And here's the cover of the Yellow Submarine SongtrackEnjoy

EDIT: So you can play The End but not save it. That's tremendously helpful for showing you guys music so I don't have to link to a youtube video anymore. Is there anyway to make it take up less space in the post though?

Oh, and AG, I could never tell what your avatar said until I saw the full size image. Haha, that's funny.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 As soon as this page loaded the mp3 began to play. I did save it onto my desktop, and it plays from there.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo  If you are more technologically proficient than I am (or if anyone is who reads this), if you can figure out a way for my avatar to look better, please help me.

EDIT: After I clicked on save edited post and the page refreshed, you mp3 started playing again. When I came back into edit this post, the song started playing yet again. I don't know what would happen if more than one mp3 were on here like that. I think we will will have to see how this is going to work out.

@Joe, @Zig, @fabfouremily, @Ahhh Girl, @IveJustSeenAFaceo 

You can save The End as an mp3 file, its listed in the attachments at the bottom of the post. For obvious reasons that is not ideal for Joe.

Regardless of it being 1 song or 34 it is a major irritant opening up a page and music automatically plays. It should always be up to each individual person to play the song or not. Can someone take it off.

I wanted someone else to see what was happening before the mp3 got deleted. Thanks for posting your comment, mmm.

@meanmistermustard et al., I removed the mp3 attachment.

@Ahhh Girl First, your avatar is kinda hard to read when it's smaller because the letters are very close in color to the background.

Second, it's interesting that I can still see the attachment. Probably just cause I posted it.

@Ahhh Girl I can still download the mp3 despite it being removed. I guess @IveJustSeenAFaceo  has to do so.

 

Thank you both for the peace.

@Ahhh Girl @meanmistermustard First of all, I can't seem to delete it. I hit Remove Attachments but it doesn't appear to be reacting.

Second, How would you download it? It appears to be a link which leads to a blank page except for a progress bar for it to play. I'm not seeing a download option.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo  Right click on the file name in the attachments box, select "save link as" and up comes my computer file directory asking me where i want to save the mp3 file to.

@meanmistermustard Well then, that's no good. I can't seem to remove it though.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo Maybe only Joe can as its saved on his server, not sure about the mods. I PM'd him as soon as i found out i could download the file as he is the one ultimately responsible for the forum, its certainly a bigger problem if the original poster can't remove the attached file. Better to know when its one poster trying it out instead of discovering when its being done by 10 different people all over the forum.

So right you are, mmm. I'm glad we are getting this tested with one of our own. I downloaded the mp3 the same way mmm did with the right click. I see what I did. I deleted the player box but not the attachment. I'll go try to delete the attachment now. I will edit this post to let you know if I have success or not.

EDIT: I just had to move the moderator's toolbox box up on my screen, and I found the "delete attachments" option. I got the mp3 attachment removed.

Cool. Thank AG. Now Faceo won't have to worry about Joe coming after him when/if Apple found out.

The stuck-in-a-BB-forum-office-instead-of-on-the-Apple-rooftop-ones can be helpful sometimes. ahdn_ringo_09

When I'm not helpful just call me Arggghhhh Girl. Wonder where I got that idea?ahdn_george_07

Yep, we shall wait for The Man to speak on this attachment/download issue.

Is there an option open to the mods where they can allow uploads but not downloads, some box to tick somewhere?

testing. this song will be removed shortly. ***The song "How Do You Do It" was attached to this post, and it played automatically when the page was loaded. In mod mode I removed the attachment. The box for the song remained it the post but will not play.***

Download remove-attachment.doc

While I still had the song attached, I clicked on edit then I clicked on the attachments button on the bottom of the post box. The first picture on the remove-attachment file shows that there is a "remove attachments" option there. I clicked on the remove attachment button, but didn't work for me. **going to test the removal of another attachment. check back for updates*** Next, nope, it looks like you can't remove an attachment while logged in as a regular forum member. Next, see the second picture in the remove-attachment file. When I deleted the attachment with the mod tool, the attachment went poof, but the box for the song stayed in the post.

What song? Nothing comes up, just the Quicktime Player logo overlaid with a huge question mark.

It was there. I didn't attach "Hold Me Tight" just in case you came to this page while I had the attachment in place. Keep looking at that post for updates on my progress. I'll make a new post once I get what I can figured out.

I don't see a way to make a song play without the downloadable attachment being available. I did my best. If anyone thinks of something else to try (either themselves or me), let me know. Other than that, we will just wait until Joe gets a chance to check this out.
