You'll be my drummer, and the band collectively will be the most fabulous rockers on the planet. I'm willing to share my crowns, titles, etc.

Other than that I haven't read in way too long, except for reading "The name of the book is secret" for my little brother. Honestly I quite love it

I am currently reading the Red Dwarf Omnibus which is the first two novels in one volume.

I read it about a decade ago and I thought I would give it another read. I prefer the TV show but the books are still alright but they are just extended versions of what happens in the shows so I already know what is going to happen but it is delivered in a different way which keeps it interesting. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

Slowly reading

Image result for john lennon playboy interview

Very interesting and refreshing to read a solo book of John and Paul's work where the author doesn't constantly refer back to days of Beatle, constantly lift one in comparison to the other or come across as having a favourite. Much more a matter of John did this and Paul this and occasionally the lines crossed. Only just up to 'Red Rose Speedway', which gets pleasantly trashed.

To be honest I'm long beyond reading Beatles books that appear to cover the same old ground and would now rather read books focusing on the solo years - and not biographies as they usually spend half the time covering the same old Beatles years before getting to the Seventies.

Well worth the £4 I paid for it and a little sad it only goes up to the early 2000's.

An article titled "La notion de gnosticisme" by the historian of religion, Simone Pétrement, published in an academic journal, Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale (1960). 

I find Pétrement to be very astute and she demonstrates a deep knowledge of the subject (it's obvious she has read Plato in the original Greek, for example).

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
