I'm doing some shoe shopping and I've come across a range called LENNON. Of course my mind immediately flicked to…

So, I just had to Google "lennon shoes" and this is what I see JOHN LENNON SHOES

John Lennon Men's Yesterday Oxford

John Lennon Men's Dr. Robert Slip-On

John Lennon Men's Lucy Lace-Up

John Lennon Men's Revolution Sneaker

My supervisor's first observation was that the toes were long and pointy.

Would Yoko had to have approved the use of John's name for these shoes? Surely so.

If she hadn't you can bet a lawsuit would have been sent out to kick out selling any more of the shoes. That's a shoo-in.

The Grammy Museum is offering free tickets to members to see Ringo in Vegas both nights this weekend, but I just got booked on a job on Saturday. Funny thing is my boss is the one I'd talked into flying up to see Paul at Outside Lands.

In a moment of insanity, I tried to work out how I might fly out and fly right back on a red eye, but I don't know if I can catch the flight out in time, and it's just too expensive to book just two days in advance.

I'm extremely happy to be working, just the timing was blah. Sometimes these things seem to happen just to test my sense of priorities. :->

Edit: Holy grammatical errors (since fixed) I think I was half-asleep when I wrote this. Also, I reread the Grammy email and apparently tickets only went to the first member to respond. So I feel better I'm not missing out on anything. Priorities remain very much intact. :-D Hopefully Ringo will perform in LA again sometime soon.

There were two articles last night on Yahoo about The Beatles. The one I read was the role The Beatles played in the aftermath of Kennedy. Would they have been as big in America had JFK lived?

Yes, but the fact that they invaded an America still recovering from losing JFK can not be overstated. JFK was a hero especially amongst the younger generation because he wasn't one of the stodgy old-timers like Eisenhower and Truman before him, he was a youthful President (46 when he died?) and much more so than now today, a President was revered. So losing JFK was like seeing your future get wiped out. So those teenagers were sad, disillusioned, losing for something to make them smile again… and right on cue, here come the moptops and the guitars and the goofy charm the Beatles had in abundance. Again, I still think the Beatles would have hit it huge even if JFK was still alive (c'mon, once you hear the energetic "I Want To Hold Your Hand," are you really still listening to Bobby Vinton?), but the fact that they came in when America was at its saddest and most morose was the perfect storm for the Fabs.

Well, those weren't the shoes I was looking at buying for myself :) That would mean I'd have some explaining to do… ahdn_paul_02

Perhaps these William Lennon & Co work boots were the ones you were looking at, Emily.

I'm just messing with you, Emily. a-hard-days-night-john-6

These Lennon ones are really nice.

I was watching Top Gear today and Jeremy Clarkson was how saying how strange it was that Richard Hammond was 45 and didn't have a single grey hair, he suspected he was dying it cue the line "He's like Paul McCartney isn't he?" :P

I've mentioned before that we have group presentations in my history of rock class. On Tuesday, the computer was acting up, so the professor ended up borrowing my laptop and hooking it up to the projector so other students could give their presentations.

While our professor was evaluating the last presentation, my screen saver popped up, which I'd forgotten about. So now the whole class knows my screen saver is a photo of Paul with Sgt. Pudsey, which caused a few giggles. :-P

Turned on CNN for the news and The Beatles are on a preview show. They have had both had Freda & Ringo features and they are currently looking at the Fifth Beatle book and Brian's role in the Beatles (tho they can't pronounce his surname right – its pronounced Ep-stine not Ep-steen).

I've heard other people (not American) pronounce it like that. It doesn't sound right to me.

Watched the first part of The Morecambe and Wise Story on the BBC iplayer and the first thing you see is their sketch with the Beatles. Beatles, Beatles everywhere. Over here, over there.heart

My daughter is learning how to play "Twist & Shout" on guitar at school :)   She got 100% on her "exam" of playing the song.  I'm so proud! paul-mccartney

My hubby, who faithfully supports me being a Paulette, called me from work yesterday & said he wants to get some of George's solo stuff.  He heard some of his songs on the radio & had forgotten how much he loved them!  So, I guess I'm a Paulette and he's a "Fiendish Thingy"!  apple01 a-hard-days-night-george-10

Your daughter chose a "John" song to learn. Any of your children fancy the drums? You could have the complete set within your happy little family.

A student used our text-a-librarian service to ask about resources for the history of the Beatles. I gave a few starting points and my email address in reply and extended an invitation to come visit me at the library. I hope this student comes by.
