There's a DVD?!?!? I think I might pass. I'll stick with The Rutles!
You know, if we were to cast a villain in the whole "stereo mix" controversy, I'd have Scotland Yard take a look at Geoff Emerick. George was old and he had never worked with stereo before. It's just a fact, not an insult. But Geoff was the engineer starting with Revolver. Hell, he was younger than The Beatles... he knew the stereo mixes for bands like The Who or The Yardbirds or They Who Shall Not Be Named didn't sound so weird! And I would bet George pawned a lot of that stereo-mixing stuff off on him since George's concerns didn't extend past the mono British release. Not surprisingly, Emerick produced one of my least-favorite early Elvis Costello albums Imperial Bedroom. That record sounds about as warm as a graveyard! I was going to blame Alan Parsons, but he didn't start until Abbey Road... and that's an album that sounds pretty damn good. You know, Phil Spector didn't like stereo either, but if you load a bowl, turn out the lights and listen to Phil's mix of "The Long and Winding Road" on headphones, you'll think you're in heaven. I found that out when I was 17, off a cassette played on my Sony mini-jambox through my JCPenneys headphones and into my stoned immaculate skull. Never could understand why McCartney hates this version so much. I know for a fact he's loaded a bowl or two in his lifetime!

Well sure, the shirt was funny. But the kid was never rude, only sad. I read his reaction as somebody who was very careful with the few nice things that he owned because they didn't have much and because I value quality myself. I get really disgusted with the disposable attitudes. And maybe it was just the apprehension of destroying that nice shirt with an unannounced fingerpainting session. And it could have been a shirt that he was given by a late parent or grandparent. Something that is irreplaceable.

Well, it took a while, and I have to admit to scanning after the first page to shorten it up (there are PINemHi challenges to be met, you know). I guess my favorite parts are the comments about what particular songs meant and who wrote what. I was unaware, though, about how George showed his 'appreciation' to John in his book.

HA! I just saw a new Hamilton audiobook that's short stories based on two other series of his that isn't even the one I've read 1500 pages of! I think I'll give up my seat on the bus for that one!

I am not a fan of That Road. I can't get past the Duh-Duh, Duh-Duh arrangement.
Several years ago while visiting Dr. Lector, a neighbor of his was playing a piano rendition of that tune. It was Miles above anything you will ever hear. And it didn't use any Duh-Duh crap. It was Really Brilliant. This tune should have been a companion to Let it Be. Some parts have more in common with "Bridge Over Troubled Waters".

The following version is somewhat rudimentary, but it demonstrates the kindred to Let it Be. A softer Duh-Duh.

How dare you say that about the Phil Spector mix! That's like peeing on the New Testament! Nah, I totally get you. Really? Just the orchestra bothers you? Not the heavenly choir? There's no doubt that Phil threw everything but the kitchen sink into that mix. I like to think that sonically-overstuffed song was a great intro to the excess of the rest of the 1970s and all the polyester, pet rocks and swingers' parties that came with it.

Who did the arrangement? It sounds like a lot of Paul's post-Beatles work where he did the arrangements. Which was the driving force behind wishing for Martin-for-Bond.
I do like many of his tunes. Just not the duh-duh arrangements or the thin Pop.

But WOW! Did he really do the arrangement and production for Mary Hopkins? "Those Were the Days" and "Goodbye" were absolutely Great.

Default Cranberry Sauce...?

OK, john Lennon is definitely saying "Cranberry Sauce" Not "Paul Is Dead" But, damn THAT story has got some long legs. "He Blew His Mind Out In A Car" "He Didn't Noticed That The Lights Had Changed" . YouTube & good ol internet has a shocking amount of 'information?' about Paul McCartney's death and replacement by some Other 'Paul'? The preponderance of the preposterous evidence sure adds up to an explosive story that I thought died down a long, winding road, a long time ago.

I think the most damnable evidence can be found on The White Album. And it is certainly clear to me, that the name of the replacement is "Dan". Consider the following lyric.
It is very telling:

Quote:
The Doctor came in,
Stinking of Gin,
And proceeded to Lie on the table
And there you have it. "North Dakota" might as well be The North Sea.
Have a listen:

Man, I used to eat that "Paul is Dead" stuff up! It took me forever to spot the "skull shadow" in the leaves on the back of Abbey Road. I wasn't able to catch was the secret phone number in the stars on the Magical Mystery Tour album cover. You were supposed to call it and talk to... Paul's ghost? Stu Sutcliffe's ghost? Ringo?

I thought the replacement's name was... you know... Billy Shears... supposedly. No need to post Rocky Racoon on my account... I knew all the words by the time I was five! Comes with the territory of having a big brother on the "Beatles" side of the "Beatles vs. They Who Shall Not Be Named" argument. That's what I don't get about all the pointless hubbub in this thread... "Beatles vs. They Who Shall Not Be Named" has been a drunken-cookout tradition in my family for decades. What the hell do other families do? Lawn darts? Is that still a thing?
I like to think I've done a pretty good job of keeping up on my "Paul is Dead" studies and I'm going to say that no one's come up with a good clue since the '70s. I'm afraid that includes that crazy, crazy site, Coily.
sleepy, I hereby commute your "listen to 'You Know My Name' " sentence, finding that it is cruel and unusual punishment.

But I like the song. Hey, what me and my Brother did was, we bought Beatles And Stones.
And when the radio had nothing but duds, well, I turned it off and strummed my violin and bowed the electric guitar. But the rosin, it don' work so well on nickel-steel strings. Rosin works best on keratin.

Say. What do you make of the Sony/ATV deal for acquisition of The Beatles' catalog from the Jackson estate? Did you like the Nike ads that were yanked?

So they finally did it! That family is going to carry on the fine Jackson tradition and piss that money away in no time. I read a pretty decent biography of Jacko a few years ago and... man, that family could make a Roman orgy blush. There's one woman who has slept with every Jackson brother except Michael... and creepy ol' "dad of the year" Joe Jackson... and, I think, married two of the brothers.
Those Nike commercials were wrong. At least Pete Townshend got to be the person who decided his songs were going to be used on... well, everything.

The dalai lama seems like a fine role model. Myself, I'd choose "evil" Spock. That's a great goatee and he seems like a guy who could really make the starships run on time.

My impression of the deal is that the Jacksons are selling off the catalog to Sony. They've had control of it since the 80's, which is why the Nike ads appeared. Sony had 50% ownership and now they have full control. There is also something about the songs being returned to LenMac slowly, starting in 2018.

What the hell were the Jacksons doing with my Billie Jean? That one was based on my "Walk on By" from '62. I played both of those in their time before they became known thanks to others. It's the ghetto game the folks have been playing. I'm sitting here growing deadly old while the next "5 fingers" hears stuff through the wall while passing by on his skateboard, runs like a pig, escapes ghetto, achieves fame and fortune, runs out of luck when his victims quit creating it. And so "they commit suicide" like Cobain. An "OD" like Hoon or Jackson.
I'm still holding MJ sound (one of My Sounds). He wasn't coming across. I feel like I'm the old Priest guarding the gate in "The Sentinel".

@Ike: Arguing something about respect. I know I've overstepped.

This is a email I sent out back in Nov. 2014. I had just discovered Star Trek fan stuffs on YouTube. Fighting off some initial revulsion I came to realize some of this, especially 'Star Trek Continues' with it's cadre of old, new and offspring actors, is a real treasure.

WOW! Here's my review of the first 30 seconds. It sounds like the original cast has done a lot of helium. The guy playing Kirk looks like what a young William Shatner would have resembled if he had gotten hit in the face by a ham. But don't think I'm not gonna watch the rest! I think I saw the first "season" these guys put together years ago. I think the original Chekov was in one of their productions!

i like the script idea, but it's hard for me to get through these fan tributes when they choose to play it straight.

i think there's gotta be a baseline parody factor in order to make it work, as tall spock demonstrates here:



Spock Vegas



EDIT: whoa... the guy playing scotty is actually james doohan's son!

I was unaware of any of this (so, thanks---you can relax / uncoil now) and decided to catch up in order of release.....and I have a request: WAKE THE DUMMY who's prompting me to download Adobe Flash before I can see 'Turnabout Intruder', because I HAVE IT ALREADY---21.0.0.182, which Adobe says is the latest!

I realize that having watched 'Fairest Of Them All' means I deviated from the order, but obviously, my Flash Player works.....

That was the most adorable thing done in the name of Star Trek since that movie where Spock brings home the stray whales! Once you get used to "helium-voiced" Kirk, that guy pulls off a pretty good mid-'60s Shatner!
When I was a kid, there was a book of "fan-written stories" called Star Trek: The New Voyages... and some of those stories weren't too bad. One of the craziest ones that I loved was "Visit to a Strange Planet... Revisited", in which a "Mirror, Mirror" transporter malfunction lands the actors on the real Enterprise! This is the only copy I could find online. Hope you like blue!

There is, of course, a story called Visit to a Strange Planet, in which the "real" characters end up on the set of the TV show. After years of searching, I found a copy of that one online, as well... but that was awhile ago and I don't remember it being as good as this one.

I was looking online to see if I could find "Mind-Sifter", one of my favorite stories from that short story book... and imagine my surprise to find that those crazy bastards who did that episode above did a version of the story themselves! I always thought it would have been a great basis for a Trek film, but they blew their "time-travel" wad on Spock's pet whales. Not that it was a bad movie (after all, it was one of the "even-numbered" Star Treks), but Shatner would have bit into this role with the stunning grace of a T-Rex!
EDIT: Well, I stand corrected. This appears to be a whole other gang of crazy bastards making their own Star Trek! Well, I love the story, so I'm still gonna give it a shot. I think I'm still gonna wish that "ham-face" Kirk was in this one too.

Nic, your inability to write a coherent thought is absolutely stunning! When I first read this, I thought “well, as usual, I don’t know what the fuck he’s talking about, but maybe he’s trying to apologize for being such an asshole and he's going to be more like the Dalai Lama.” Ah, but that was incorrect… wasn’t it, Nic?
Just so that everyone here is caught up, Nicky decided to drag his petty Pinball Nirvana bullshit onto my Facebook page where he lost control of himself and made a snotty comment on something that didn’t have anything to do with him, Pinball Nirvana or known horse-fucker George Martin.

CENSORED UPON DEMAND! DEEMED "TOO FILTHY FOR THE INTERNET"!

I think the people who know me from here can guess what happened next, and it happened at lightning speed. At least I can be sure that nic probably has a lot of experience at losing friends.
Nicky, I think it might be time for another “vacation”. You remember the last one, right? Not enough people read your Spelunky thread, so you threw an epic “delete my account” tantrum and stormed off. Maybe I should call it a "rant" instead of a "tantrum". Either way, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. This would be the part where I’d tell you not to track your shit onto my Facebook page again, but, thankfully, that's not something I'll ever have to worry about.

all that over a small tweak, justly earned? methinks i hit a nerve.

in any case, i don't have a problem with however you chose to respond. i would of course appreciate it if you did not share my name or accts from other sites. phishing and ID acquisition is a growing problem, you know.

btw, "another day, another dollar" was the riff in question.

Yeah, I guess you could say that. Dragging your personal PN baggage onto my Facebook page was definitely nerve-hitting. You're a real class-act, pal.

PS: Your "riff" doesn't make any sense. Like so many of your posts. It should read "another day, another Dalai Lama impersonator". That doesn't make any sense, either, but at least it's worded correctly. As far as sharing your name or accounts online, I must apologize. I'll transfer you to our IT Department. I don't have any "hold" music, so just read the following over and over again while you wait:

Fools' names and fools' faces always appear in public places.

Hey, nic, while I've got your attention, there's something I've wanted to know for a long time. I've seen a lot of idiots over the years make their "grand pronouncements" about how they're leaving VP and never coming back, as if anyone really cares but themselves. I've seen just as many, who, like you, crawled back after their Final Exit. Tell me, what's that like? I mean, do you have a sense of shame in publically making a fool of yourself or is it just more moondust off of Hitler's moustache? Oh, that's my "riff" on "water off a duck's back".

well, i'm sorry. it seemed like a fairly playful comment, and hardly 'baggage' of one type or another.

i don't really understand your reaction, but i'm sorry for upsetting you.

i agree my overreaction was foolish, but i was away for years before finally coming back. i think it was around the time my dad was sick or had passed, and i was probably lonely for some people i remembered.

i get the feeling you are upset about more than just the FB tweak. mind sharing what it is?
