"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Looks like we were throwing pixels around at one another. Glad it all worked out in the end. We didn't even bring out the pitchforks and bonfires.

Could people please calm down.

There is a legitimate argument that the video is not in the best of taste.

There is a legitimate argument that it's a sense of humour.

In most circumstances I would delete an empty post, however as it was not originally an empty post, but a post that was responded to, I am minded to leave it there.

If it was offensive, I would have removed it. If it was opinion, which others could legitimately disagree with, I would have left it in place.

Make your arguments, Beatle people. Be prepared to offend others unintentionally. Never set out to offend. Never leave a blank post because you question the content because of the response.

Live with your mistakes, if you consider them such.

And I speak as one who has made them, and has tools to cover them up.

I big boo-booed in a thread a few weeks ago, and after I had realised I had, and had access to mod tools where I could have have gone in and cleaned the thread to leave no trace. Instead I left it alone for Joe to come in and give me a public spanking.

If you are offensive we will remove it, and offer PM advice. If you are posing a legitimate challenge, no bad - whatever the response.

Please do not edit comments to blank spaces.

And if you do, expect them to be left in place. Other mods, Joe, please do not delete post 332.

In my OPINION, if people did take any offence, they are being overly sensitive.  That's my opinion.  I am entitled to that, and I not?  It's an open forum, is it not?

Here's the thing - you're entitled to an opinion that Paul did nothing wrong. You're not entitled to tell people they're being overly sensitive. Or if you do, accept that people won't respond well.

I don't do things like make fun of peoples weight or how they look.  I don't do silly things like call people "retarded"… 

That's not even up for debate. My point was that the times you felt like you were getting piled on - like the John/maybe not John photo in the unseen photos thread - people were respectful in return and let you know it was nothing personal. It would have only been made worse if someone had said, "you're being overly sensitive, LHL." When has that ever been helpful? So why turn around and do that to someone?

but seriously, people are offended by everything these days.  It gets on my nerves. 

Like that. If you can't understand where someone's coming from, listen to them. How can you decide already people have nothing to get offended by if you haven't even read the reasons?

The problem i have is that its getting to the point where its getting difficult for anyone to say anything without some offense being taken or some cultural connotation being unpicked, or stitched together, from the fabric. And normally those who we think are being offended, and therefore need to take a stand for, fail to see what the heck the furore is all about and are getting on, or trying to get on with their lives.

Same point as above. It's not that people can't say anything, it's that people are empowered to say when something bothers or disturbs them. That's a good thing. That's a great thing. No one's taking away your right to your words, they're making you accountable for them. We're adults, we should be able to handle that.

LHL, if you're genuinely confused why someone would take offense to Paul's words, I'll take another look at the video and explain my perspective. If you have already decided I don't have a point to make, I won't bother. I won't go so far to say the video upset me, per se, but it wasn't a good look on Paul and I'd rather not relive it if that'll be a waste of time.

Either way, peace to you all.

To clarify, it's not that I don't know what it was that offended people, I get that.  To me, it's not offensive, I just don't read it that way.  I don't think it was a bad look on Paul or any of that.  

Next time I will try to use more tact when I say things.  I admit, not my strongest point.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Wogblog today posts

It seems that Paul McCartney will be bringing his Out There tour to the UK in 2014. According to this website, you can participate in an auction to meet and greet with Sir Paul, as well as attend a concert when his tour reaches the UK.
Usually, whenever he tours the UK, he will also visit a few other European countries. Meanwhile, the tour hits Japan on November 11th, the release date of the new Beatles album. He will play six concerts in Japan, ending in Tokyo on November 21st.

 

Anyone got a spare 7 grand so i can meet Paul?

The site wogblog links to (gavelandgrand.com) writes in their article

...After the concert you will then go backstage to meet this living legend in person and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask a member of The Beatles about his journey and experiences on the road.

 

Don't forget to ask about the ahhh's.

Wow, it's already time - Paul's in Japan. Which means we'll soon be seeing photos of this robot, which is all I care about. Okay, well, the setlist too, but whatever. Giant Stage Destroying Tourbot!

Some more, via Maccaboard, about Paul's tour in Japan:

Arrival at the airport.

Article at Japan Today, which mentions, among other tour-related events, that Paul's Osaka concert will be streamed live (if I can find a link that'll play outside Japan, I will post).

And an enterprising company has created a temporary Beatles-themed cafes in Tokyo and Osaka.
