An increasingly occasional blog about the Beatles and their songs.

Shameless self-promotion (of the non-Beatley persuasion).
In my non-Beatles life, I'm an editor and occasional contributor at Not Coming to a Theater Near You, a film site that is awesome. There's a cool feature going on now called Silence After Sound that covers the silents of 1928, the last year in which silent films still made up a significant part of Hollywood's output. A different silent is being covered every day by the site's various writers, and for today I've written about Beggars of Life, a Louise Brooks melodrama that deserves to be more widely available. Anyway, if you're at all interested in silent films, check out the link-- all the reviews are interesting and fun to read, and there are more to come (including one more from me on The Wind, an even cooler silent), so keep checking back.
A Year in the Life was 2009, when I listened to a Beatles song every day and wrote a blog post about it for some reason. With very occasional exceptions, this is basically an archive now of that year, and whatever I thought about a Beatles song on any given day.
