I was seeing The Post, and a trailer for the Concert For George reissue came on.  I loved every second, but I was annoyed they chose not to include one clip or sound bite from the Indian section that takes up such a significant role in the concert.

^Might turn people off- it goes on for quite a while and if Indian music isn't your thing, you still have to sit through almost 1/2 an hour of it.

While constructing a call number for a new book just now, I came across this title in the library catalog"

In the crosshairs : famous assassinations and attempts from Julius Caesar to John Lennon / Stephen J. Spignesi ; [edited by Jodi Brandon].

From reading a bit of the chapter on Lennon.

I didn't know The Dakota's full name is The Dakota Arms.

Another tidbit: He [JOHN] was a notoriously big tipper and often doormen would fight over who got to deliver a package to John.

I was watching Doctor Who Confidential (a behind-the-scenes show that was made for the first few years the DW revival was on the telly but sadly was a victim of the BBC cutbacks).

 

Anyhoo, a skeleton crew was in New York doing some shots for an episode set in Manhattan. Part of their job was going to Central Park and getting some background shots which they would later put the Doctor and his companion in front of. They were trying to get as many shots of buildings from and before the 1930's so they could include them in the episode. I am 98% sure I saw The Dakota as one of the buildings. 

 

I don't remember seeing it in the final episode (although it could well have been there are a lot of helicopter shots in the final episode) if anyone wants to watch the monstrosity (worst Nuwho episode ever in my opinion) that is Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks, then you can see.

 

Another Doctor Who/Beatles moment (there is a lot of them, so many in fact that I could probably make another 10 posts or so) I recently bought the 10th Doctor's DW Magazine Panini comic collection featuring Donna and Martha. Now I don't know the context of the situation as I was only flicking through the pages but I imagine Donna wanted to go back in time to visit a certain group and well......

They get a whole page where they talk but I didn't read it because...

Also while looking for the photo of the four in the Cavern Club, I found out that apparently Ten brought Martha to go see The Beatles as well in a Doctor Who Adventures comic (magazine for younger DW fans). 

Image Enlarger

Ten in one of his comics with Rose also asks her if she wants to go visit the Fabs. 

David Tennant is a big Beatles fan so I wonder did he ever nag the writers to have a Beatles' episode and they finally gave up and said "we'll give you a Beatles adventure but it'll be in the comics instead".

One of my favourite YouTubers the great rewboss (an Englishman who lives in Germany and does videos on anything-to-do-with Germany) did a video on how it was apparently illegal to burn condoms in Germany.

When I saw the title of this video I went "this has to have something to do with The Beatles", and of course it did. Go watch for yourselves:

 

'Tune In' is on my Kindle but I still haven't got around to it yet, did Lewisohn debunk the whole condom-burning story or did he say it's legit?

I was at a book store with TheWalrusWasMom (okie, I tried, but sounds just as bad as I thought) and we were talking about how the 75% off section rarely has anything of interest, I walked over to investigate and immediately saw the magic words of "the Beatles".

" What'd you just say about it not having anything of interest, " she said while waving a bright coloured book in the air, scaring the nearby cashier.

Anyone who has been around here for at least a couple of years may recall that Zag & I have our favorite restaurant at which we celebrate events special to us. There are many things to like about the place, but one of the coolest is the fact that every time we've been there, we've heard a Beatles song or at the very least, a solo Beatle's song. Yesterday being her birthday, we strapped on our proverbial feed bags and headed for Austin's. A soon as we got out of the car, we were greeted by 'Eight Days A Week ' emanating from the outdoor speakers. Then, halfway through our dining experience, we were treated to 'All You Need Is Love '. It's gotten to the point that every time this happens, we share a knowing smile and "clink" our glasses together.

On a semi-sad note, we also toasted Tom Petty when they played an acoustic version of 'Free Fallin'. ahdn_george_05

I'm reading this book, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and two of the characters are talking about how they're so different but they're good writing partners (ah, writing partners).

"Yeah, but it's like John Lennon writing with Taylor Swift instead of Paul McCartney

"Get over your self, you're not half as pretty as Taylor Swift"

I couldn't help but saying aloud, "You're not half as pretty as Paul, either". ahdn_paul_02

Something similar happened to us yesterday. While out to lunch, it started to rain during the opening of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps ' on the jukebox. It was especially cool because, as you can see from this pic, the place has an entire wall of windows overlooking the airport that juts in and makes up part of the ceiling. It allows you to see the rain coming down from the clouds. While lunching there last weekend, we watched a snow storm roll in from the distance.

If she was spelling out her password, @Beatlebug , you may not want to repeat that story too often. ahdn_paul_02

We were watching an episode of Green Acres this morning - the one in which Oliver thought he was going to become a Judge in Hooterville. While he was trying on a Judge's robe, Lisa also had him try on an a powdered wig. Oliver said, "I can't wear this. I'll look like an old Beatle!".

@Zig, you’ve got to upgrade your viewing habits!  I thought I watched some goofy stuff, but jeesh.

Green Acres is the place for Zig

Farm livin' is what he calls big 

He doesn’t care for modern TV piffle

He’s more fond of a pig named Arnold Ziffel

 

Zag goes along but thinks he’s loopy

While watching GA her lids get droopy

”Zig,” she finally says with some asperity

“Whatever happened to TV watching-parity?”

...The chores!
...It bores!
...Fresh air!
...You’re square!

You are my wife.
Good bye, modern life.
Green Acres we are there.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

One of my good friends and I went to the music room (just for a change) yesterday, and a bit of time passed before he said 'ok, name these tunes'. I got the first 7 perfectly, and then.... I had no clue. And the song was Here, There And Everywhere ! I'm not surprised, seeing as I hardly listen to it, but boy I was embarrassed.

And then I went to my English class, and the teacher didn't turn up. So we spent the period wisely and did some revision, and after a while people started getting restless, and someone connected his phone to the room's speakers. He played a few modern songs, but then played Savoy Truffle beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifand Norwegian Wood . This was the guy that I mentioned here and he said later on 'Say the wooooooooord... and you'll be free'. beatlemaniacs_02_gifHe remembers my favourite song!

A fun moment, but no need to work yourself into a lather over it. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Went out last night (didn't stay late)... Shortly after we sat down, we heard 'Something '. Less than an hour later, we heard 'She Came In Through The Bathroom Window '.  A bit ho-hum on the surface until I mention that both were versions sung by Joe Cocker. I've always loved how he sings with so much feeling.
