A couple of weeks ago on his weekly HBO show, Bill Maher did a bit about "Imagine no John Boehner... I wonder if you can." (I'm certainly trying, though!!) And then there's this Macy's "Come Together" campaign...

A qestion on Univercity challenge asked something like 'a collage by Peter Blake called 'people we like' became famous in what context.

There were 4 peopleon the team. 4 brits and a gril from USA. The girl from the USA got it! But it was obvious the brits didn't have a clue. It'd have been interesting if one of them might have been able to guess it. It made me think that young Yanks are more knowledgeable about the Beatles than young Brits. I think this is 'cause the Beatles rise in the UK was relatively slowly whereas in USA they've got one big defining event to mark the Beatles massive impact on that country.

I have one of the Raving Rabbids video games for Wii (TV Party, I think) and one of the games has a yellow submarine flying across the screen randomly.

I posted this on another section but I remember hearing Glenn Beck playing Revolution and examining the song and explaining how The Beatles knew what Revolution was all about. I also remember on this other news station they were playing Taxman when Obama was speaking.

I think they have to get permission to do things like that. I wonder if they did.

Two films that have been playing on my cable tv movie channels lately...

The Breakfast Club ~ The dean asks the custodian, "What did you want to be when you were young?" His reply, "When I was a kid, I wanted to be John Lennon."

Woody Allen's Manhattan ~ His character is dating a 17 year-old and she complains, "You think I'm unaware of any event pre-Paul McCartney."

On the episode of iCarly where they meet Youtube star Fred, they do a montage of high pitched voices at the end. One of the characters says "I buried Paul"

lol

Still on Roseanne, there's an episode where they hold a bridal shower for Crystal, and they play a game called Who Knows Crystal Best? One of the questions is, "What song was playing on the radio when she lost her virginity?" and someone responds, "My Sweet Lord."

the other week Gabby Logan did an interview with Fabio Capello, the Italian coach of the English football team who's 64th birthday it was. She asked him...he hadn't heard of it.
