If only there was an Australian Beatles store...

The Australian dollar is now nearly equal to the American dollar, at least it was a couple of months ago, plus prices in America are less than in Australia (after conversion) but it's just that damn shipping fee.

I was original going to buy The Beatles: Rock Band from the UK Beatles store... until I found out the shipping fee to Australia was going to be over a hundred pounds! So I bought it from the US store instead and it was much cheaper.

This is a pretty cool site I discovered lately. If you look through the archives, there's some great stuff. http://www.thebeatlesrarity.com/

A lot of the stuff is not that "rare" per se, but some of it is... and I think it's nice to listen to something different every now and then, especially for those of us who don't collect all the bootlegs.

Ho, ho, ho! Take a look at this!

http://www.telmallos.com/index.....tritus-ii/

The word 'Love', in all it's 558 times sang glory, in the entire Beatles discography! I was trying to identify all the tunes, but some just flew by! Have a listen, you may want to never speak the word again afterwards!

So that's what that is about! I kept seeing it, but the descriptions didn't make sense and I moved on. Thanks!

Another day, another t-shirt. I can spot two for sure, but the one giving a peace sign would be a safe third:

Oh dear..

Oh, Yoko: Is the DC JOHN LENNON Exhibition a Fraud? [UPDATE]

“[During] his lifetime, John Lennon -never- created serigraphs, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs (with one lifetime exception titled “frontspiece”). As with any original works of visual art, original printmaking requires the living artist’s hands on gparticipation [sic] and can’t be created posthumously.”

That's been going on for some time. I think I've read about Gary Arseneau before. He makes a convincing argument: there have been all kinds of stuff sold as John Lennon artworks over the years, the most dodgy IMO being the time his lithographs were coloured in by Yoko's people and sold as new pieces.

I guess I use the term "rare" somewhat loosely on the site. Rare to me means either not officially released, or officially released but now out of print for long enough that people are having trouble buying a new release of it. Sometimes things are widely bootlegged and for that reason may be considered not rare, but nevertheless I still lump those in because it's a gray area as to how known/unknown it is. Occasionally the rarity won't fit either category but usually that is it. Infrequently I will do something fancy like tamper with a recording but in any such instance I always state it in the post. This sounds nastier than it really is (as if I'm being deceitful or something) but that is not the case at all. An example would be the BROW posts where I restored You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) to it's original lenth. That one is here. I also did that with The Quarry Men's In Spite Of All The Danger which was edited down on the Anthology 1 CD. That one is here. So these are just minor reconstructions to give a fan a close idea of how it was before edits and stuff like that.

The American trailer for Nowhere Boy is out! Interesting, it's rated R. I guess a biopic on John Lennon would have to be, wouldn't it? Watch This: New Us Trailer for John Lennon Film 'Nowhere Boy'.

I have mixed feelings about this. I suppose I'll end up watching it and expecting it to be primarily entertaining and secondarily how I think it must have really been.

His blue eye keep throwing me off, but I'll probably see it too. Funny how they felt the need to make it seem actiony.

It was rated 18 in the UK I think as well. Here in Australia it was only M (unrestricted). I saw it at the pictures with my family, my little sister included – it wasn't really appropriate for young children.

The only thing that annoyed me about the film was that Mimi didn't speak in a Liverpool accent, not even a Northern accent. Does anyone know why this may be or was it just the acting?

The film looks pretty good- but I think if I went to go see it, I'd be one of those realllllly anal Beatle girls: "That's not right!" "They weren't there at that time!" "Oh my god, that's not John at all!" I think the fellow watchers in the theatre would be a little annoyed. a-hard-days-night-george-7

It does look pretty good though- don't know how I feel about the actor playing Paul... they couldn't have gotten a little closer in looks? Aiyee. The actor playing John looks quite good, but you're right Skye- it's those blue eyes! He's quite good-looking though. a-hard-days-night-john-3

This is pretty funny - Liam Gallagher's Apple Records biopic excludes The Beatles. So no John, Paul, George, or Ringo. None of their music. Just Liam's sound-alike 60s band. Can't wait. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

So is he going to make a movie about Apple without their founders who are The Beatles with a soundtrack that is not The Beatles, but it's going to be like the Beatles?

LOL!! I think I'll rather watch Sgt. Pepper with the Bee Gees thank you very much.....

 

BTW I remember two or three good Oasis songs, but to be honest.. what have they done that is worth listening? I mean, this is a question not an Oasis critic...
