Sorry to hear that @TheWalrusWasBrian... I always find it very irritating when Real Life interferes with my anniversary-commemoration a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I won’t be doing business with Amazon anymore after learning that they have shelved Woody Allen’s current film and may never release it.

It's half past three in the morning, and I've just finished watching probably the greatest live streamed concert ever. a-hard-days-night-paul-5 It's gonna hurt when I wake up again, but it was worth it watching Paul play a satisfying set list like that LIVE via YouTube. No More Lonely Late Nights for me from now on...a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I was fortunate to be in the same time zone as Paul was playing, and I was thinking it would've been nice if he'd done it on y'all's side of the pond so all the Americans would simply be watching in the afternoon and the Europeans wouldn't have to stay up till the wee sma's. Of course they did anyway!

It really was brilliant, wasn't it? I don't know if it was the greatest live-streamed concert... Muse live-streamed a by request show from Paris back in February that was almost as good. But it was amazing.

Every day this week I have the final few rehearsals for my massive concert next weekend. (I'm the principal horn)

2500+ kids performing in front of 10000 people. Pretty cool stuff!

That’s awesome Holey, hope it goes well. 

Being in front of a crowd while playing music has sure to evoke the spirit of The Beatles in you.

I remember going into a recording studio at university to do some voiceovers. I had long hair and put the headphones on. It really felt like I was honouring the legacy of John even in a small way. I was doing what he had done. May sound stupid to some people, but I’m sure you guys understand.

As silly as it sounds, I completely understand. I feel like I'm channeling the spirits of all my favourite musicians when I tuck my headphones over my moptop and record something. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Okay, I'm definitely keeping that in mind next time I wear headphones publicly. ahdn_john_08_gif 

Anyways, I started college today. Can't be bothered to go into detail about it right now, so I'll let the next two days of going there play out and post about it then.

Good luck with the next day or two, hoping it doesn't hit where you are too hard. I trust you're not in the evacuation zone?

Heard an interview on the BBC with a woman who hasn't evacuated, and though nervous about the impact, when asked if she was worried about flooding, she said, "I live on top of a hill, if I flood we're in real trouble".

That made me chuckle.

Take care and stay safe.

This could go in the Things We Learned Today... thread but I've decided to put it here.

Googled Covent Garden Odeon today as that's where I'm off to to see Imagine  next Tuesday. I was rather surprised to see the result, and The Beatles connection...

Somebody stole my credit card number. My card company texted me about someone in Pasadena, Texas, going on a spending spree with my card. I denied the charges. Now my card is cut off. Glad I've got a backup.

Haha thank @Ron Nasty, I wasn't in the evacuation zone (and we sorta live on top of a hill, too, so if we flood we're in real trouble a-hard-days-night-george-10). but we decided to visit Georgia anyway. Traffic getting out of the state was pretty bad. It's just past midnight and we've arrived finally; I managed to get all the way from The Piper at the Gates of Dawn to Animals* in my Floydathon whilst riding! a-hard-days-night-john-6

I do wonder what we'll come home too. Hopefully nothing too bad. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I finally got the post-Wall Floyd on CD. I had never heard Division Bell or Endless River. DB is really good.
