Updating this thread cause I enjoy it when it says 'last updated Yesterday' (dun dun dun dun)



I watched The Hours and the Times a couple of days ago, and thought it quite excellent, easily the best fictional account of The Beatles i've seen. All the others i turned off midway, despite the couple of cheap laughs that were to be had at the awful impersonations. Highly recommended, even if you're not fussed about Lennon and/or the band.


Also watched a few Macca clips and have begun to respect him quite a bit more. He's still my least favourite of the 3 main songwriters, but he seems the least pompous of the three too. Also got to love him for this clip from when he got busted for weed;

Respect for not hanging his head in his hands and bullshitting out a fake apology. That piss-take of the BBC guy's RP accent is pretty funny too.

Paul - a good lad, even if at least 50% of his output makes me puke.

Have you seen him in that Ronnie Wood show? He came across very well. Ronnie - not so much...

I've always loved this similar moment from over a decade earlier, where he's clearly prepared for the interview with a healthy dose of the matter at hand - not to mention the excuse is so ridiculous he and Linda can barely hold it together. "Five of 'em came up illegal."

Ron Howard done a Beatles documentary.

Yet another one, but it does look kinda interesting.

I doubt it'll contain much that fans don't already know information-wise, but I think it'll be a real thrill to see Beatlemania in colour and on the big screen. And going by the trailer, there's definitely some new footage in there.

Been playing Beatles Rock Band recently.

CGI Ringo's face keep distracting me.

Really I should probably just focus on playing my real guitar (skill level 2.4: can play 'Day in the Life', still stumbles over 'Blackbird')

Sorry Madhair, but the title of this thread annoys me every time I see it.

So the most celebrated band in UK history are (fucking) good? Fascinating.

You iconoclast you.

I prefer the early stuff, the pretension of the later stuff grates on me...like, I know they were off their tits...but still.
