NASA have beamed "Across The Universe" to some distant star. They say it's to celebrate the song's aniversary but seems more a stunt to keep NASA in the news (it beats exploding Shuttles). But the signal will take 400 years to reach them and who knows whether it will be alien-iPod compatable?
The Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool has finally opened. The John Lennon suite is 600 pounds plus per night. There was a general discussion about Liverpool's poor treatment of it's Beatle history. It seems there is some resentment at how they (are percieved to have) abandoned the city once they hit the big time, and Liverpool bands are sick of being compared to them.
