Nice pictures, although I would never pay $1,000 for them.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Who in their right mind would pay £1k for a picture? 

 

'Morecambe And Wise - Two Of A Kind: The Complete Series', which features the complete episode the Beatles appeared on, is available to buy on DVD (Region 2 only). If you do wish to purchase it you'll have to do without too much delay as according to Wogblog

It's only available for a short time, as Apple will only let them have it for a year.

Roy Orbison's son, Alex, has bought the film rights to Jim Berkenstadt's book about Jimmie Nicol, The Beatle Who Vanished.

The film is being made with George Hamilton and Alana Stewart's son, Ashley Hamilton.

Also, not exactly breaking, but well worth mentioning in case it hasn't already been, George's Vevo channel got a major overhaul a couple of months ago. Lots and lots of new videos been added.

The children's home immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit Strawberry Fields Forever is to be redeveloped by the Salvation Army.

An £8m scheme has been unveiled for the home, where Lennon played as a child.

The venture will combine an education centre for young people with learning difficulties and an exhibition on the home, the song and Lennon's early life...

...Major Drew McCombe, divisional leader for the North West branch of the charity, said: "Strawberry Field is special in the hearts of many people in Liverpool, the UK and across the world, and we at the Salvation Army are aiming to redevelop the site to do justice to the many people that have been supported by the children's home or formed a connection with the iconic Beatles song."

Remember how there was an official limited edition George Harrison turntable from Pro-Ject announced alongside the solo vinyl box?

Seems it was the first in a series of 6 official limited edition Beatles-related turntables from them. The second, called '1964', has just been announced:

The design of the George Harrison turntable struck me as strange at the time, as it seemed to be being associated with the solo vinyl box, yet the design featured a mid-'60s George. It makes a whole lot more sense as the first of a series of Beatles turntables.

Does that thing come with a lid to cover the record?

That looks ghastly and cheap in the picture, hopefully it's more aesthetic when viewed in person.

Rolling Stone has certainly lost a lot of credibilty, but I hope they are right on this one. 

Paul and Ringo together in the studio?

Strawberry Field is being renovated:

"An £8m scheme has been unveiled for the home, where Lennon played as a child.

The venture will combine an education centre for young people with learning difficulties and an exhibition on the home, the song and Lennon's early life...

The song's refrain 'and nothing to get hung about' is said to be a reference to Lennon's retort 'they can't hang you for it' to Mimi about playing on the property."

"Remember, we are writing in the sky instead of on paper--that's our song. Lift your eyes and look up in the sky. There's our message. Lift your eyes again and look around you, and you will see that you are walking in the sky, which extends to the ground. We are all part of the sky, more so than of the ground.
