My copy came today. I didn't realize the book was going to be that big... I got the package and I'm like I ordered one book, not an encyclopedia. Apparently I ordered George Harrison's encyclopedia.

I'll try to start it either tomorrow or this weekend.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

That's what I'm calling it. I flipped though a couple pages this morning and there is this picture of George and Dhani and my heart swelled.

Someone in the comments section of my review has accused me of being sexist, misogynistic, mean spirited and churlish (their words). That's new to me - I don't think I'm any of those things.

I can handle the criticism if it's justified, but I'm genuinely a bit perplexed by this. I confess I'm sometimes not great at anticipating how others will perceive things I've said, though I try not to be offensive. Your thoughts, good people of the Fab Forum?

Another one! Add petty and questionable to my list of personal qualities. Maybe I should change my forum signature.

You ascribe questionable and petty motives/behaviour to Olivia trying to portray her as resentful of Pattie, trying to portray their relationship as antagonistic . I have seen Olivia receive a lot of negative comments and outright hostility on a lot of social media f(Twitter/Youtube/facebook) from men most of which boils down to ‘how dare this woman represent George!’ I see some vitriolic misogyny accusing Olivia of appalling things which I will not repeat here- I can send links. I do not see Dhani getting similar abuse.

Olivia and Dhani not ask to be put in the situation of maintaining George’s estate and it is clear from interviews it is a difficult task. But every time something is issued like ‘Living in the Material World’ or the Apple Years Box set Olivia gets a stream of negative comments on social media from male George fans . These do not get directed at Dhani

Personally I believe if George trusted Olivia to maintain his estate (and it is clear from the terms of his will he did), then that is good enough for me

And are you aware that George did not even want to mention Pattie in ‘I, Me, Mine’ (out of respect for her privacy) and that Derek Taylor had to get him to mention her?
