I was thinking of asking my sister to make me a life-size cardboard cut-out of one of them, probably George… Would be a bit cheaper :D

We have Sirrius radio on at work, and Deep Tracks is playing George's Out of Time right now. I stopped what was I doing for a moment to go, "Are they actually playing one of the Apple Jams?!"

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

^ Fantastic :D

You're at work now? Okay, that still seems a bit weird. I'm going to bed soon.

Yeah, when I chat with a British penpal, he's usually having dinner when I have lunch. :->

I was reading up on internet speeds because my internet has been giving me hell for months. In one section it talks about downloading and it used The White Album as an example. 

You’ll notice a difference when you’re downloading files, but it all depends on the size of what your downloading. For our example, let’s use The White Album by The Beatles, an episode of South Park, and the movie Lady and the Tramp. The White Album about twice the size of your normal album, and a good quality version is about 200 MB. A South Park episode can be about 400 MB, and Lady and the Tramp will be about 1 GB (3 GB HD). Lets break down how long it will take to download them.

 Internet Speed 3 Mbps 6 Mbps 12 Mbps 18 Mbps 24 Mbps
The White Album
200 MB
9 min 4.5 min 2 min 1.5 min 1 min
South Park
400 MB
18 min 9 min 4 min 3 min 2 min
Lady and The Tramp
1 GB
44 min 22 min 11 min 7.5 min 5.5 min
Lady and The Tramp (HD)
3 GB
132 min 66 min 33 min 22.5 min 16.5 min

That's one cool dj. Did you get up and dance around?

No. I turned over. Hate Dance Tonight with some feeling.

I'm watching Paul's Twitter Q&A thread while ordering books. The title I just came to is "Weed : family guide to marijuana myths and facts".

No, I will refrain from asking the questions from the Questions for Paul thread.

I'm finally getting a chance to watch Paul's interview on Jimmy Kimmel (they showed it on the Jumbotron before the concert, but the sound wasn't always on) on Hulu. And when they ask which ad experience you prefer, I chose the Gap ad, and sure enough, I got the Dhani one!

At my school yesterday  we had this organization called Round Up, and it's to support organizations at my high school. I helped set up for the lacrosse team I joined at the beginning of the year, and I stuck around after paying a $2 entrance fee.a-hard-days-night-john-7 Anyways, after working a shift at our concession stand, the DJ began to play Twist And Shout. I couldn't believe it, since most of the music was current trash they have on the radio. They also played The Rolling Stones so it was a good night. 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I went to a local record store, and ended up buying a program from Paul's New World tour. And I opened it, and it had a '93 ticket stub! The store must not have seen that before they sold it, as they sold the program for only $5.

^^We will just think about your $2 going to paying the DJ. That should take a little bit of sting out of having to pay the entrance fee.

Listening to a Beatles song being blasted out of speakers was well worth 2 bucks. Felt like I was in 1964. 

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

In my history of rock class tonight, our professor asked us to name examples of "beauty" in rock, and I suggested "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and he played it. I got the feeling a lot of students weren't familiar with the song, and they were quiet at first. But as the song progressed, people started tapping their feet and pens on the desk and getting into it. I might have converted a few tonight. :-D

You get all of your class participation points heart Glad you spoke up! How did the professor access the song? YouTube?

He does. It's a very convenient teaching tool.

A few minutes ago, on the morning show I listen to, the DJs were talking about Mark Lewisohn's book, expressing skepticism about the need for it, especially the 2000-page deluxe edition. Even the biggest Beatles fan among them said, "At some point, don't you say 'enough about the freaking Beatles?!'" It underscored what I've been thinking all along – that this book is a hard sell for fans, much less the general public. I hope those of us who care are numerous enough to make it a bestseller.

Eh, no. Can we have some more please (but at a better price)?
