I think I see a slight improvement in the level of question this time, though his answer was still a bit dull and uninformative. I wonder how long this'll go on for?

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

Still going, Emily. :-)

Brendan Browne from Australia wonders what direction Paul's life might take if he were to go back to school. He asks:

“If you became a full time student, what would you study?”

We spoke with Paul to find out. He replied:

"Good question, thank you Brendan. I love reading and would be interested in studying English literature or history. Or computer studies, which is such a useful skill."

 

I cut out the padding, but it's at the link if you want to see it.

Paul's latest news letter 'What's That You're Doing' is out which means its that time of the month when Paul is asked those questions we are all dying to know the answer to – yes its 'You Gave Me The Answer'.

This months biggie was 

“Where do you get your energy from?”

Sadly Paul missed the opportunity to wade into the UK Electricity political debate instead replying 

“Thank you for your question, Kevin. My energy comes from… Sex & drugs!… NO! I’m joking! It’s simply from having enthusiasm for life. It never runs out!”

 

Would have been far more interesting if he has said British Gas but was thinking of switching to SSE or EDF Energy as the prices are exorbitant and that even he has to switch suppliers every year. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

 

Apologies if this is in the wrong place, fee free to move. And apologies if this post takes away your joy from these monthly question and answer sessions. I'm away to sit down and recover from such a revelation.

Applause for mmm.

I make a motion that mmm reports the monthly q&a from Paul's website. It makes them more fun to read. Who seconds my motion?

Were the Paul 'You gave me the answer' questions not being posted to the Beatles News thread?

At least he is having some fun this month, no? The questions are still lousy, though. I mean, what? ''Where do you get your energy from?'' Who wants to know the answer to that when you can ask him anything!?

I see that Annadog40 has seconded my motion. All in favor say "aye". Any opposed. There are none. mmm you are welcome to entertain us at any time with your commentary on the monthly Paul q&a from his website.

EDIT: @parlance The posts on this topic from today were in the "impossible to derail thread". Emily remembered that they should have been somewhere else and so I moved them for us. Sorry I didn't write that here when I first moved the posts.

No, I hadn't been. I had a hard time thinking of this as "news."

I didn't know we had a separate thread for these. Must have been so much hope at the start.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

It's not just the question is lousy, it's also been asked in other interviews before with the same answer given, and Paul's joke dates back to the 16th century and wasn't amusing in the slightest then.

So we've not only getting questions that are totally uninspiring but have been asked before elsewhere. Woo-flippin'-hoo.
