October 9, 2008

(Picture from Beatle Photo Blog)

This would have been John Lennon's 68th birthday. There have been some sad stories about John in the press this year, but I think it is important to remember that even if he had difficulty loving on an individual level, he had an uncanny ability to love on a global level and we all benefit from the great gifts he shared with us during his lifetime.

Iamaphoney has commemorated this important date with a new video...and a new suitcase. Great soundtrack song too.

The new video is simply titled 42 60


I have to admit, I am as perplexed as anyone about the suitcases. But now that we have them, I am rooting for a total of 14. Then we can get Isis to go round them up.

And as if Suitcase #5 isn't enough, we have new Fireman Song #3 - Sing the Changes from Maccaspan2008.

I think the image is supposed to represent earth encircled by peace.
I don't think Saturn was intended to be represented,
but I could be wrong.

from the article about the Peace light:

"Local media reporters joked that it was a rare and golden opportunity to get get hard foreign currency. But in reality, the USD 50,000 will go straight to the Icelandic Red Cross."

This situation is quite serious. The Icelandic economy has been totally wiped out by the global economic collapse.

Vince, here.
My Wife's birthday, too.
Not the biggest Beatles fan in the world.
I'll never forget when we were dating, back in '88, and I took her to see "Imagine"!
Kinda like when Homer got Marge the bowling bowl for her birthday!
She did tear up at the end of it, though....
We went to see "Religulous" yesterday....
I thought it was a little too easy for Mr. Mahr, but, he DID get serious at the end. Never thought I'd see someone on the BIG SCREEN say, "Can't we finally put an end to ALL RELIGIONS...... PLEASE?"
My wife loved it.

Wow...

Just went to check out all the new Sunsoflight videos, and not only has the account been suspended, but all videos have been removed "due to terms of use violation."

Could it be that PHONEY hates competition that much, or was this new, highly productive user telling us things someone ... cough - Faul - ... really didn't want us to hear?

I saw all the Paul related ones he posted up through the "Free as a Bird" one; did anyone see and/or save any of the two or three that were posted after that one?

Maybe Bern and Harold called the FBI on them! Shame.

Hopefully sonsoflight will drop a message here to tell us why YouTube would randomly pick that account out of millions to enforce their unenforceable policy.

Vince here, again.
I see Laurie Anderson will be playing Israel next month.
Do you think anybody will try to kill her?
Hold her at knife-point until she performs "Example #22"..... my FAVORITE song of hers.

From ABBEYRD'S BEATLE NEWS BRIEFS
http://abbeyrd.best.vwh.net/


"(10/11/2008) We just happened to click into Ringo's website to check his video updates and found this very surprising message, dated Friday, that Ringo delivered in a very serious tone. Here it is:

"This is a serious message to everybody watching my update right now. Peace and love. Peace and love. I want to tell you after the 20th of October please do not send fan mail to any address that you have. Nothing will be signed after the 20th of October. If that has a date on the envelope, it's gonna be tossed. I'm warning you with peace and love I have too much to do. So no more fan mail. Thank you, thank you. And no objects to be signed. Nothing. Anyway, peace and love, peace and love."

We're trying to contact Ringo's press representative for some kind of explanation as to what prompted this. We'll let you know what we hear. "

Hmmm.

that's weird. warning us?

or maybe he's just hyping a new album...it doesn't always have to be life changing, you know...

or maybe he's not taking fan mail anymore because the end of the world is near, right?

c'mon c'mon
