Paul McCartney Rocks SunLife Stadium

It was twenty years ago today, Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play. Okay, that’s totally inaccurate but it remains a fine way to begin a Beatles related post. The concert began with a pre-concert meal at the Hard Rock Casino, but since I was a bit early, I decided to donate some money to […]

Silly and Serious

We’ll start with silly. Dan Haun’s ongoing efforts to be the number one contributor to my blog continues with his submission of “Charting The Beatles” As you may recollect I had mentioned before the flowchart of Hey Jude, well this is way beyond that. Rather enjoyable (once I used a utility for the visually impaired […]

A Very Not Beatles Christmas

First, this oddity from Stevenson. These are the rantings of someone who said he went to a parallel universe where the Beatles hadn’t broken up and he ran into someone who told him all sorts of stories and whatnot. He came back with a tape of an album of unreleased Beatles songs. These songs, are […]

Hack, Wheeze, Sniffle

As you may have possibly gathered from the subject line, I’m sick. It started last night after 8pm when I developed a dry, hacking cough. Because there was no good reason for it, and I felt otherwise fine, I assume it wasn’t a big deal and just an irritated throat. I took some Hydromet before […]

Atrocity In The Name Of Food and many other ramblings including iPod and Beatles

If you are squeamish, you will wish to skip this paragraph — the links are horrifically graphic. This report is available on AP, CBS, and many other news services and it’s absolutely disgusting and appalling. NewsBlaze and CBS . The bottom line is that approximately 150,000 baby chickens are ground to death in meat grinders […]

Purple Vans, Purple Vans (Apologies to Prince) + Movie Review, Etc

Paul: My thoughts are with you. I hope it all works out okay.  You all wanted to see the shoes. Some of you whom I saw this weekend saw them in person. The rest will have to see this photo. If you click on the photo, you’ll go the Flickr page which has a bonus […]

Beatles Rock Band Party

The Quagmire is rapidly approaching the 700th post! It’s sort of exciting really. I can’t believe it.  237,800 viewers and counting. I thought I’d hit a quarter million this year, but it looks like late 2010 now unless something else I write spurs traffic. Disney has announced Pirates of the Caribbean IV: On Stranger Tides. […]

Apple and stuff that’s way more interesting

I am an Apple fan and have been for a long, long time. So I wish to say I am quite disappointed in today’s Apple announcements. Seriously anti-climactic if you ask me. There was much anticipation, and it was followed by much boredom. Far more interesting today 9-9-09 was the Beatles release of their entire […]

So many things to report….

First, a big thank you to John and Liz for their hospitality last night. There was BBQ and music and fun all around. I’m glad I went. Tasty. A bit spicy and my acid reflux didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as I did. Oh well, sometimes you gotta’ live a little. Now on to […]

Randomness Part Eight

What a weekend. The Panthers won Friday and Sunday giving us a total of four wins in a row. Yay, Panthers. Next up, I’m sitting in Thomas’ car on Sunday and he’s driving. We’re both wearing seat belts. Though I often give him crap for his driving, he’s a pretty good (i.e.: very cautious) driver. […]
