Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

There’s a new Beatles album coming out in November. I knew this was in the works, but I didn’t know the release date or the stupid name they’ve given it.

I already have un-Spectorized versions of the stuff on Let It Be, and it’s all definitely superior to what was originally released back in 1970, but there’s still no getting around the fact that the band was not making great music during these sessions. They filled their work environment with anger and acrimony until coming together one last time to craft Abbey Road, where the magic is palpable one last time.

On the other hand, I will listen to "Dig a Pony" or "I've Got a Feeling" anytime...

They are leaving off "Dirty Maggie May" and "Dig it". Look guys, they may be song fragments, but give us the whole album. If you signed off on it the first time, give tit to us now. Otherwise you are rewriting history. And if you ARE going to be removing songs from your back catalog, consider removing anything Ringo sings on (Just kidding...sorta).

Your thoughts?
