Not great, Zig. Apple haven't picked up on my marshmallow protector caps, a big disappointment as i thought that had a good chance, but i'm holding out on the tv remote-control heater (to safe folk from that pesky problem of picking up cold remote controls during winter). 

 

Thanks for asking.heart

I am so glad I did.

I just wish I was wearing a bib before reading your post.

Thanks for the laughs.

* Article in Wirral Globe on Mike McCartney opening a new photo exhibition. There's a photo of Mike with his son Max, who resembles a certain uncle wearing his disguise in A Hard Day's Night. And I didn't know he had images at the Smithsonian.

Heres an interview from the Today Show. November 22 Ringo is putting on a show and the "teens" are invited, so I think there could be a reunion.

John

* John's first Liverpool home sold to an American for £480,000 ($770,038). Examiner article, Liverpool article with video.

 

Paul

* Those Paul stickers are now available from LINE if you download the app, which apparently is also available for PCs.

 

* Rolling Stone article on the Paul's 12 Weirdest Songs.

 

* In the same vein, via The Macca Report, Paul's building a robot friend for his stage shows. I think he's gone bye-bye, guys.

Paul McCartney has commissioned the puppet masters who created the horses for hit London stage show War Horse to design a robot for his upcoming concerts.

The former Beatle dreamed up the idea of having an Iron Man-esque sidekick onstage with him as he tours to promote his new album New after reading classic kids tale The Iron Giant to his daughter, Beatrice.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I got this little vision… of me in front of a forest in a checked shirt… and right next to me with his arm around me, was a robot, this very shiny guy. So I'm working with the idea… of having this big guy onstage. I like the idea that I've got a big mate who's a robot.

"This idea has to do with newness. I'm the outdoorsman, sort of a country guy, living out in the woods, but I have this friend, and he's the modern world. In fact, he's the future.

 

Ringo

* From Mojo: The Photography Of Ringo Starr

* Telegraph article on that fan reunion and photo reenactment for the Today Show

 

General

* WogBlog's reporting on limited qualities of the Live At The BBC vinyl releases.

* Examiner article on the Paley Center event in NY led by Mark Lewisohn that included Henry Grossman.

I'm not going to offer any links, you can find them if you look, however the prosecution case in the newspaper phone hacking case was launched today, and high on their list in their opening argument was that Sir Paul's and the One-Legged One's phones were hacked by Murdoch's papers. We will undoubtedly hear more over the six months the trial of Murdoch employees is expected to last.

Them as well?! Anyone famous who hasn't possibly been hacked?

Was just mentioned on the Irish news a couple of minutes ago. Sure Paul was named when the news about the phone-hacking first came out, wasn't he?

The story i heard today was to do with how journalists found out about Paul throwing Heather's engagement ring out of a window

The jury was told Mrs Brooks did know about the practice of phone hacking.

Mr Edis said she told golfer Colin Montgomerie's then wife, Eimear, in 2005, that all you needed to listen in to people's voicemails was a mobile number and a factory pin.

Mrs Brooks gave her an example of an exclusive story that she said had come from hacking, about Sir Paul McCartney arguing with his then wife Heather over an engagement ring, jurors heard.

Seems one thing we have learnt from the opening prosecution argument, Macca and Mucca, and what happened, will be a part of the trial.
