This is where I meant to put this. 

Olivia found a new George song and gave it to Ringo:

That proves once again what a beautiful soul George has! 

I also absolutely love this quote by him from Beatles Books Monthly November 1964:

I’m extremely interested in people. I think I make an easy target for folk who like to talk about themselves. It takes a long time for them to bore me because I enjoy listening to new ideas and different opinions. That’s what life is for– to find out fresh things and learn new facts.

Caring and wise.

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

Another cute and also very funny appearance of George 1968 in the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour:

^ I love his clothes on that appearance, you wouldn't think green-striped trousers, a pink ruffled shirt, and a leather jacket would go together but apparently they do.

 

Also I freaking love his '68 hair, my God , it's absolute perfection!

I know, right?!

(I thought it was an orange shirt a-hard-days-night-ringo-12)

George just has this je ne sais quoi about him that he can pull off stuff like that and still look fab.

I didn't think there'd be still be screaming fans by 1968! Also, the Smothers Brothers look cool, I might check them out more.

Mmmm... been debating where to post this, here or in the Dhaily Dhannerz thread, but since it's to do with Annie Lennox receiving the George Harrison Global Citizen Award it seemed more here than there, though it does also involve Dhani...

Ahead of the ceremony, Annie and Dhani put out this message...

While at the ceremony, with Olivia looking looking, delivered a speech about what the award meant, the importance of global citizenship, and George, before being joined by Dhani at around the 6:40 mark for a performance of Isn't It A Pity  (with more than a nod to Hey Jude  as it goes on!)...

Also, I also came across this, from Jools Holland's 2001 into 2002 Hootenanny (an annual BBC2 programme seeing in the New Year). A few short weeks after the loss of George (filmed on 12 December), they finished the show with this tribute, featuring Sam Brown, Beverly Knight, John Cale and David Gray on vocals, Ronnie Wood on guitar, Jools on piano, backed by Jools' Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and a cast of many others...

This is an incredible gif. George looks like he's about to kick your face in - a true "I'm George Harrison . We're the fucking Beatles!! Who the fuck are you? Fuck off" moment. Even John looks like he's backing off.

Got around to watching the 2016 George Fest. Fantastic stuff. I hope Tom Petty pulls through 🙁

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.

There will be a song dedicated to George called "Pisces Brothers" on Mike Love's new upcoming solo album, Unleash The Love, which will be released on November 17.

I was going through some photos last night (purely for drawing research purposes, you understand a-hard-days-night-george-4) and it struck me yet again* how beautiful George's smile was -- like his face was reluctant to break its habitual seriousness, but he couldn't resist an outpouring of joy/mirth/positive vibration anyway. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I also adore the way he talks out of one side of his mouth --

Cutest doggone thing heart

*There's a post somewhere in this thread from December of 2015, I think, where I rant and rave about how g(e)orgeous his smile is for a lot more paragraphs that this. So I'm trying to keep it succinct this time around. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I'd like to comment on George's amazing vocal on I'm Just Happy To Dance With You. He sounds so awkward and unsure of himself as a lead singer, and that only helps the song as he sounds meek and humble.

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.

I was watching some George Harrison interviews on YouTube a couple days ago and just want to say that he had such a beautiful way with words and expressing himself. heart
