News and Opinion

The All Together Now Trailer.

It opens with three walking away in one direction while one walks away in the other to the sound of "Can You Take Me Back."

The DVD is scheduled for release on June 24, 2008.

A disturbing piece today with very little details about a security breach at Ringo Starr's London apartment.

In the comments, somebody mentioned that you never hear of threats of this nature against Paul McCartney, but I think that there have been some over the years. It would be hard to find them with a search engine because of all the Heather Mills ranting and the fact that the McCartney camp tends to keep these things quiet. If any crazy, violent people read this blog, please stay away from the surviving Beatles and their families!

In other news we have the usual Paul/Ringo reunion rumors. As much as I would like to see it, I think that the furor over Ringo's misinterpreted remarks earlier this year have made Liverpool not the most friendly place for Ringo right now. I'm from a working class town myself and I think he meant that once you go off to the big city and become a success, you don't really miss the Dingle. Give the guy a break. Liverpool is a great place and Ringo never suggested that it wasn't.

Interpol or some such entity foiled an elaborate attempt to storm McCartney's home to take Linda and the children hostage. This was in the early 80's as I recall.

There was also a mentally ill man who ran on to Paul's property last year. This is only what gets reported of course. I'm fairly certain it happens all the time. To ex-Beatles and Uma Thurman alike.

And I remember that an intruder filmed a bit of Macca´s house a year or two ago. The video was in YouTube for a while.

What is the All Together Now trailer?
Trailer of what?

Thanks for the examples. I knew they were out there.

In response to pmc27's question, "All Together Now" is a documentary on the making of "Love," the Cirque Du Soleil show.

An egregore is a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose. Whenever people gather together to do something and egregore is formed, but unless an attempt is made to maintain it deliberately it will dissipate rather quickly. However if the people wish to maintain it and know the techniques of how to do so, the egregore will continue to grow in strength and can last for centuries.

An egregore has the characteristic of having an effectiveness greater than the mere sum of its individual members. It continuously interacts with its members, influencing them and being influenced by them. The interaction works positively by stimulating and assisting its members but only as long as they behave and act in line with its original aim. It will stimulate both individually and collectively all those faculties in the group which will permit the realization of the objectives of its original program. If this process is continued a long time the egregore will take on a kind of life of its own, and can become so strong that even if all its members should die, it would continue to exist on the inner dimensions and can be contacted even centuries later by a group of people prepared to live the lives of the original founders, particularly if they are willing to provide the initial input of energy to get it going again.

I think Jude/Queen of Cosmania knows who iamaphoney is. Just a hunch.

A BURGLAR who died after breaking into Ringo Starr’s apartment block was named last night.

Guards caught Edward Sharman, 32, sneaking into the 67-year-old ex-Beatle’s pad in Chelsea, West London.

They held the prolific burglar to await cops but he collapsed in custody and died days later in hospital on April 30.

The police complaints watchdog is probing the death. An inquest is due to open tomorrow.

Well, let's see where this inquest goes. I am relieved to find something.
I didn't want to say anything before but because of those Fireman posts, and the iamaphoney connection wierdness and the strange absence of iamaphoney/alias posts this attack made me nervous. Strange days indeed.
