Love Ringo and have thoroughly enjoyed his last several studio albums..... but this one, pleasant as it is, feels a bit "samey" to me. The title track is more than a little reminiscent of "Never Without You" and the whole feel of the album has that "Y Not"/"Ringo 2012"/"Choose Love" smack about it. A winning formula to my ears, but Ringo sounds like he's become rather stuck in a groove and this growing habit of padding out the tracklist with back catalogue re-treads is wearing pretty thin now. Some catchy rockers though, as always; and aren't we all delighted the little bugger is still enjoying himself and looking so good at 77?

I haven't listened to it yet. But persuaded by tkitna I have listened to Ringo's albums of the last years and I did enjoy them enough. So I will most probably pick this one up as well. And yes, delighted that Ringo is still around and making music that is worth listening to.

George would have appreciated today's commemoration.

Right, Moog.  It's very clear that the universe has a top and a bottom...








And I feel bad for you...

actually thats not strictly true Baz

when you think about the universe there is no right way up, only our perception of it, there is no top or bottom of the universe.

Only our perception.

I watched the latest Pirates of the Caribbean with my boys. Pretty non descript film although fun enough as these things are. But I'd forgotten that Paul had a cameo in it. Only lasted for thirty seconds or so and he was almost unrecognisable. Still. It was quite amusing and probably the best thirty seconds of acting in his career.

I listened to it the other night and rather enjoyed it. He really is an amazing guy, especially considering the health issues he had to deal with as a kid. I'm so glad I got to see him.

Ironically, I read it in 1984, in high school.  ;)

I know I read this in high school too but I don't remember a lot about it. I think I have my brother's copy. Reading it might make me even more nervous than I already am, though.

We did the dreaded Shakespeare in school.  :o


You wouldn't have felt that way if you studied Shakespeare the way I did, Kev.  Sure, we read the plays but we also got to see them acted out at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Connecticut...





...a recreation of the Globe Theater where Shakespeare's plays were first performed.



It's good to see his plays acted out.  One can appreciate the iambic pentameter when seeing his plays performed.


No, Marlon Brando didn't play Mark Anthony at Stratford, but look at his expression after his speech, where he feigned weeping over Caesar's body, incites the crowd to riot...







Now let it work.  Mischief, thou art afoot.  Take thou what course thou wilt!
