I Say, It's All Right.

Today, we celebrate the birth of George Harrison. George was the lead guitarist for the Beatles, had a fantastic solo career and was an amazing person all the way around. If he had been alive today, he would have been 67.Happy Birthday George. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten.

If You Leave Me, I'll Never Make It Alone

I wish I lived in California. It looks so pretty and warm there.
"All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey..."

It's Only a Northern Song...

Okay, what I'm about to say is going to come off like whining, but you'll just have to bear with it. It's pretty obvious that I hold the Beatles and the Who in very high esteem.
So when I turn on the t.v. and see Kris Allen performing "Come Together" on American Idol, I die a little on the inside.
Season 7 Beatles week on Idol was horrendous and not only that, but they decided that butchering 12 of the greatest songs ever wasn't enough, and that they needed to kill 11 more.
I was reading some song spoilers for tonight's top 24 and I read that there would be two Beatles songs performed and one by the Who ("Oh Darling" is the only specific I've heard.)
It makes me cringe to listen to wannabe Taylor Swift's sit there and try and sing a song that they have no respect for. I bet if you asked half of them they couldn't tell you all four Beatles or one song by the Who.
So, the point of all my ranting/whining, is that these bands deserve better. But American Idol is greedy and won't pull the songbooks so I guess we'll just have to put up with it.

Now I'll give you some photo's in exchange for you all listening to me complain :D

Duran Duran - Rio

Just Like That River Twisting Through A Dusty Land...

So out of all of the 80's bands that I know, love, and have a vast knowledge of, Duran Duran is my favorite. I can't get enough of their music and it always cheers me up at any point in my day. It makes it so that any time I hear the word Rio, I automatically start singing "Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand..."

I pretty much have a Duran Duran lyric for every occasion and I dare you to try and find one that I don't have one for. And now because we all need that pick me up for the middle of the week (unless your out on the east coast and haven't had to work for almost a week like someone I know...) I give you Duran Duran.

It Ain't Me Babe.

So today in the wake of the considerably large UBSCUT test that is very much the bane of my existance, I feel like posting some photos that make me happy. Why? Because nothing makes me happier than a well taken photo and because that stupid test made me tired and this requires very little brain power to make happen.

And yes, I am in a very Bob Dylan sort of mood, so you'll just have to put up with it for a while. Eventually I might post some pictures taken by me, if I ever get a camera of good quality.
