* Examiner: St. Peter's Church in Woolton where John and Paul first met (at least officially, if you've read Tune In) will hold special events during International Beatle Week

* People.com released video of Paul bustin' a move with Jamie Foxx at the Hamptons benefit.

Wogblog entry reporting the upcoming release of three new cd's (2 double cds, one triple cd) in a 'Historic Live Recordings' series on the OxTango Music label (Examiner's report was previously posted upthread).

You can compare samples of many of the new 'remastered' versions of the tracks to the supposed previous 'best available' on OxTango Music's website as well as view the artwork, read notes on the recordings etc. 

Interestingly/strangely they chose to include the 30th June 1966 'dark suit' Japan show over the 1st July 'light suit ' performance.

* Billboard posted what might be the briefest of snippets from the McYeezy collaboration.

* Recent interview with Mark Lewisohn in which he estimates the last of the three books will be out in 2027. :-( [x-posted to the All These Years thread]

Lewisohn is 3 years older than I am.  I'll take it with me when I go and get it autographed by the subjects.

Now I must Google "ice bucket challenge" to see what it means, if it means something more than what the photos ostensibly show: a celebrity getting dunked with ice water while standing in the crosswalk (surely the "challenge" must involve more than that...)

By now, @Funny Paper I have to assume you've Googled and discovered that the ice bucket challenge is a fundraising phenomenon aimed at raising awareness of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). I heard on the radio yesterday that this challenge has increased the donations by a whopping 700% over last year. Good on you Ron Howard for participating.

Thanks for the post, @parlance

The guy should just accept he's going to die in prison.

Indeed. Kill someone, rot away in your cell. That's what they all should do.
