  1. No, I mean, clearly there were issues. I didn’t mean to make it sound like it was all roses. Just from books I’ve read and interviews I’ve seen, it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Even when the breakup was fresh, none of them was ever eager to really put a pin in it. It was clear, even with their issues, they still cared about each other. To hear their 70’s interviews (and, of course, they could be lying, but I don’t know why they would), the biggest reason there was never a reunion really came down to something as banal as scheduling conflicts. I don’t think any of them had any interest in being a full time Beatle again, which I’m sure would have been a whole universe of pressure unto itself, but they were always open to recording together. There’s an interview from like 71 or 72 (so pretty soon after their breakup) where Lennon is like, we are just never on the same page. When I want to get back together, they are all busy with something else, and then when Paul wants to get back together, I’m busy. But I’m sure it will happen. (I’m paraphrasing, of course).
  2. Considering the amount of footage they have, I would hope so, but I expect it will still be pretty sanitized. That being said, there’s a kind of myth, perpetuated by the original, that they couldn’t stand to be with each other during this time period, and I’m eager to get a fuller picture. The film looks gorgeous, though. They’ve done an amazing job with the restoration.
  3. I’m looking forward to it. It looks great.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    I like the idea of using the HDTGM list as a guideline. We can always put it to a vote every month if there’s something (like Roped) we all want to watch.

    This is the exact film I was thinking about...

    That's what I was thinking, too. With my old job, every so often I had to do work on military bases, and it is a super pain in the ass to get clearance and whatnot. I feel like they would have just sent some of their own people to pick up the cookies rather than just picking a company at random.

    THANK YOU!!! My wife was only half watching and wouldn't believe me. I was like, "No, whenever they're in a two shot, they're taking little tiny steps to mimic skating!"

    Musical Mondays Week 107 Pennies from Heaven

    It has a very "inspirational song at the end of a made for TV Christian show" vibe to it.

    The Ringo video is almost the same as Paul's... (The tune's not all that dissimilar either)

    I bought his Christmas album last year. I think the only complete Ringo album (aside from Greatest Hots) I have ever owned was Ringo.

    I went real nuts and just pre-ordered Ringo’s new EP

    Episode 255. A Very Nutty Christmas

    I can kind of get why MJH might have mistook Chip for an actor in the ballet -- after all, she was expecting one to show up at her house to stay for a couple of days -- but did she honestly never wonder he didn't need to rehearse? She doesn't even make an effort to show him where the theater is or anything. Instead, she offers him a full time job as a nut crusher at her bakery. I guess, I just find her to be dangerously uncurious. If I'm not mistaken, she doesn't even start to put it all together until midway through the third act of the ballet when she suddenly realizes that he's been sitting next to her the entire time.

    Speaking of the Mouse King, did anyone else think it was going to turn out to be her ex-boyfriend?

    Episode 255. A Very Nutty Christmas

    I was definitely hoping for more from the Mouse King. It seems strange to me to introduce magic into your story, but only take the fantastical elements so far. I wanted a human sized rat damn it! However, I think my biggest issue with the Mouse King was trying to suss out his business model. I mean, forget about cookies, this guy is apparently running a freight company that immediately puts the squeeze on its clients for extra cash, and then what? What exactly was his endgame? She clearly didn't have the 5k he was demanding. Had Chip not intervened, what would have happened? He was hired to make a delivery and now he's just not going to do that? How is his company making *any* money, let alone any additional money earned through extortion? Also, seeing how they only agreed to take the cookies to the base after being threatened by Chip, there is absolutely no way I would trust them to haul my freight. These guys are clearly criminals! What's to stop them from dumping your wares a couple miles down the road or trying to fence that shit and pocketing the money for themselves?

    I really liked the first song, and pretty much the whole package together. Like, it feels like a concept album. The problem is, I didn't feel a lot of distinction between the songs. It's not the best thing he's ever done, but it's middle of the road, and I don't hate that.

    Episode 255. A Very Nutty Christmas

    Here’s what bugged me about army guy at the end: he’s not an adequate substitute for her just continuing her relationship with Chip. He’s not filling any discernible void. Based on what we know about MJH and her workaholic tendencies, the kind of casual, once-a-year relationship that she would have had with Chip seems almost ideal. Yet, by pairing her off with the army dude, the movie seems to be positing that that kind of limited relationship would be inadequate, and that she requires a more present partner. Which is fine, of course. However, the movie then decides to pair her off with a person who is not only less magical than Chip, but equally (if not more) unavailable! The movie goes to great lengths to tell us how rare it is for army dude visit his aunt. From the sound of it, it seems like it’s been years. If anything, a guaranteed once-year-visit from Chip sounds far more stable and reliable than whatever she can build with some random army guy who never has time to visit.

    I just started listening to McCartney III. Already I think I like it more than Egypt Station. Feels more raw and experimental — it feels kind of like McCartney I but with better production values.
