a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That's surprisingly listenable, not that I am going to.

I liked the new 'Lion King' film,  it looks great and the story is that good that it's hard to go wrong. Basically, it's a very good cover of a brilliant film. The soundtrack is horrendous tho. Bland covers that leave you bored and unmoved.

Rowan Atkinson was brilliant on the original 'I Just Can't Wait To Be King', the new one has changed the phrasing and it just sounds dull.

Hope you're doing ok, DO. I'd thought many times to post about your absence in the 'whatever happened to' thread, but thought it was maybe best not to. I do hope things are improving your end and that your return is a sign of good things - if you ever need to vent, mine and I'm sure many other BBers' inboxes are always open.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

(YT: ABBEY ROAD BUT ITS JUST BASS)

Mostly Fender Precision on side one and Rickenbacker 4001 on side two, if I'm not mistaken ("sides" are an olde worlde expression when you used to turn over a "record" on a "record player" and put a thing called a "needle" "on" it. Now get off my lawn), lots of clever bits there. I've been playing lots of guitar and teaching myself bits of songs in between re-recording a few of my parody songs that were made before I had guitars. Today I somehow figured out the guitar intro and solo to Drive My Car . Harrison puts all kinds of bends in places I never suspected before. (e: not the solo, that's Paul with a slide. I got to get one of those things.)

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Here’s my new Beatles stuff from the Love gift shop. I had a lot of difficulty deciding what was worth the spending of my meager budget, and eventually settled on this:

8A48F9BE-7F3F-412B-9E5E-343017074FE5.jpegImage Enlarger

There’s a plaque, which I got instead of a poster because it’s a) smaller and therefore it will be easier to find space for it on my already crowded walls b) more portable, less likely to get crumpled or bent in my suitcase and c) it has a better picture than most of the posters.

I also got some Beatles buttons because I have very little impulse control:

And the White Album anniversary edition because DEMOS.

Also, the bag from the store was really cool:

^ Nice haul. You can even hang that bag on your wall. (Hang your bag on my wall...)

That's a lovely fabric behind the items. What is it?

I have been spending large amounts of time in trees as of late, with the weather being as nice as it is, and it is doing good things for my mood -- my general temperament is typically sunny anyway, but even I require much sitting in trees listening to Floyd and Harrison and Zeppelin to balance the large amounts of news and politics I consume. a-hard-days-night-john-6

@50yearslate today's tree-listening included Living In The Material World specifically (as well as my go-to albums Obscured by Clouds and Houses of the Holy), and I thought I would recommend it to you particularly. john-lennon-salute_gif

Good to know, I’ll have to try it. I also must listen to Houses Of The Holy as I was intercepted on my way out the door and never got a chance to visit the tree. I imagine my new Esher demos will also make good tree-listening ahdn_george_06

Discovery: listening to the Love remix of Mr Kite while racing nightfall on a scooter is extremely unsettling.
