Watching “Orange is the New Black” on Netflix, there is a new character, from Australia. I kept thinking I’d seen the actress somewhere before, then I remembered this post from four months ago, with a video from Australia. Look at the girl on the right.
Mark Evanier’s opinion of this video is, “I don’t get why anyone thought this was funny or clever or worth making,” but I think the comparison is obvious. “Mad Max: Fury Road” is, in a way, a punk remake of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.”
Pictures from New Horizon’s closest approach to Pluto are on their way.
Click here to see a post from five years ago about Dave Dexter, Jr., who was responsible for much of the worst, and some of the best, about the Beatle records in America, on Capitol. I’m finally getting around to finishing the series.
The link between the Beatles and Bozo the Clown is Alan Livingston, as explained at this link by Bruce Spizer, the Beatles-in-America expert. Spizer can be heard in this 2010 edition of Bob Malik’s radio program, “The Beatle Years.”
Spizer is the best source for understanding the convoluted story of how screwed up Capitol’s handling of the Beatles was, not only before “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” but long after, thanks to the confidence — considered by many to be misplaced — that Alan Livingston had in Dave Dexter, Jr. Some of the source material that Spizer presents shows, however, that once it was obvious the Beatles would be bigger than big, Livingston began to second guess Dexter’s judgment.
Next up you will hear Dexter himself talking about the Beatles, and I will explain how I made my peace with the Dexter-ization of the Beatles sounds and selections heard on Capitol Records.
England’s addiction to tea was made possible by China’s addiction to opium.
Like Steve Martin in “The Jerk”, Rachel Dolezal thinks that she was born a poor black child?
