Would you be sad if I told you that I looked it up? Because I can make this post disappear if that's the case.

Finally watched the HBO documentary about George. Anyone else catch it? It was pretty good, but they definitely skipped a number of subjects. No mention of Cloud 9. No mention of George's feud with John towards the end of John's life. No mention of George being the only Beatle to release an autobiography.

I was going to watch it last weekend, but realized I'd recorded the wrong channel and got the non-HD version.

So I DVRd it again this week on the HD HBO channel. Why watch in non-HD when HD is an option? /picky

Am planning on watching it this weekend.

Caught literally two minutes of it at a friend's house and was immediately sold. I could tell it was going to be a good film. Or at least that I would get a lot of enjoyment out of it. So, I'll try to sit down and watch the whole thing sometime soon.

Yes, you definitely wanna watch it in HD instead of standard def. Plenty of eye candy to enjoy.


One thing in particular that I enjoyed about the movie was George's attitude about Eric Clapton and Patti's affair.

Yes, those young Pattie Boyd photos are prevalent indeed.

As I sit here listening to The White Album, a band growing apart, I can't help but think this is one of the best records I've ever heard. From the fantastic, catchy melodies to the intricate musicianship and amazingly captures tones. Some of the songs I like less than others, and I've never cared for the piece of audio art on the second side quite as much. But this is the sound of a band at some damn creative heights and I love it to death. Gotta be the best double album of all time.

It's pretty damn great. Can't pretend there aren't 10 or so songs on there that I think are below Beatles standards though.

Sign o the Times is the greatest double album of all time, easily.

For me even the slight songs on the White Album give the album more character.

Quadrophenia is the best double album for mine.

I will take Quadrophenia, London Calling, and Exile on Main Street all over the white album. Or any other double albums, for that matter. The white album has some great things on it, but it has too many tracks (note I did not say songs, as rev 9 is included in this batch, and I don't want laz to think I'm calling it a song again) I would gladly live out my days never hearing again.

Worst song on the White Album? Wild Honey Pie for mine, if that counts.

Best seven tracks - Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Helter Skelter, Happiness is a Warm Gun, EGSTHEFMAMM, Blackbird and Rocky Raccoon.

No, it doesn't.

It's probably the worst track, but mercifully it ends a couple minutes sooner than the other Honey Pie, so it has that advantage.
