Paul McCartney: “Another Day”
The first single of McCartney’s solo career. Truthfully, I tend to think of all the music The Beatles made after they broke up to be just one big continuation of the White Album sessions.
The bad stuff is just outtakes— I basically disregard it, as if it was never released— and the good stuff just makes up one gigantic Volume Two of The White Album that is never finished.
This song (which was written and previewed during the Let It Be sessions) is as good as anything Paul ever did with The Beatles.
I went to school at Sir Paul’s Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts (LIPA) from 1995-98 and when I graduated he was the one who handed me my pin commemorating being part of that school’s first graduating class.
One other time, he came into the canteen when I was eating beans and chips and everybody else went nuts and screamed and jumped up on the table but I decided I would rather react to him like he was an ordinary human being and not be a maniac about it, but I probably looked like I was the craziest person in the room as I just kept on eating my chips and beans while everyone else jumped and screamed at the sight of Paul McCartney.
Mondays, amirite - It’s that bump and daily grind.
A Man Awkwardly Passes a Basketball to Globetrotter Hallie Bryant for 10 Minutes
JD Amato made this video tribute to my dad. I like it a lot.
You really need to watch the full 10 minutes to really “get” it.
My dad interviews Harlem Globetrotter Hallie Bryant in the 1970s.
This is a thing I have posted before, and I will undoubtedly post it again.
_____________________________ MAN OF STEEL comes out tomorrow. I thought it would be a good moment to re-blog this.
“CLARK KENT” a short film
In anticipation of the upcoming Man Of Steel, here is a short film I made using only the “Clark Kent” scenes from Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978).
I removed any overt references to Clark being Superman, and I changed the musical score.
You COULD still view it as if he’s really Superman, or you could find your own meaning. I personally believe that something much more sinister is going on.
I hope you enjoy it.
THIS IS THE BEST. If you take Superman out of the movie Superman, what you are left with is a man who was unfairly abused by his peers in high school and then tortured and mocked by everyone around him as an adult as he himself makes less and less sense!
Stay for the end of this. INTERPRETATIONS WELCOME.
