If you like to do the Twitter thing, you'll love The Daily Beatle, brought to us by the folks at the always excellent Hey Dullblog (which is always over there to the right on my blogroll). There's going to be a quote, a link to a story, or some other fun exciting thing posted every day. Follow it!
I like daily things having to do with the Beatles, so I support this effort. Even though I'm not on Twitter myself. I don't know. Should I be? I haven't gotten around to joining. At any rate, I'm posting that Daily Beatle link for myself as much as anything, so I can check it out each day without actually joining Twitter. Yay!
In other news, WogBlog reports a release date on the vinyl remasters of the complete Beatles catalog: October 4, 2010. I can't believe they can keep make me wanting this set of songs over and over again. And yet they do. But then I look at my record collection and realize that I listen to records less and less frequently, because really it's just EASIER to plug in the iPod and shuffle things and so forth. And I'm not enough of an audio geek to get into how the sound is different on vinyl so much (also, I take horrible care of my records, and I haven't replaced my needle in ages-- picture me blushing in shame here). So I think I won't buy this set.
(I'll just lust after it from afar.)
