The Fab Four, on their Beatles-mobile, on their way to the shops... to buy some crisps.

You poor poor people. Whilst searching for an old tweet for another blog post (which may well never happen as it’s a bit lengthy), I unearthed some more #Beatlesfacts which I had previously splurged on Twitter previous to what I posted here. No-one loves filler material but hey, it’s my blog so I figured ‘sod it’, I’ll post them up anyway.

  • The song Daytripper is inspired by a day trip the band took to Chessington World of Adventures.
  • The Beatles originally had a cartoon squirell sidekick called Mr Fuzzles. He was later dropped due to being a massive racist.
  • Before becoming a band The Beatles were a detective agency, an accountancy firm and a chain of supermarkets.
  • In the Macca/Jacko collaboration, The Girl is Mine, the girl in question is actually the rights to The Beatles songs.
  • Other rejected band names include : The Donkey Punchers, The Flumps, Shitbreak, MC Sar & The Real McCoy.
  • Ringo Starr misses doing the voices on Thomas the Tank Engine. “I miss it”, he said yesterday.
  • As well as inventing Beatlemania, The Beatles also invented : Velcro, The Metric System, spots on giraffes and Oasis.
  • Ringo Starr dreams of electric sheep.
  • John Lennon regularly ‘ghost wrote’ songs on his days off. His works included I Will Survive, Ride on Time and 99 Problems.
  • The Beatles favourite colours are White, Red, Purple and Fiat Punto
  • Paul McCartney’s favourite cereal is Banana Bubbles – The Cereal That Thinks It’s A Milkshake. “They’re my favourite” he said.
  • Rejected names for The Beatles include : System 4, Fingerbang, The Stabbers, Technotronic feat. Ya Kid K

Well there you go, I think that’s all of them. Bad news, I also found some Bonofacts, I’m sure I’ll trudge those out when things round here get a bit quiet (a week from now).

Bye now! Big kiss. X

“Thinking about your iPhone. Don’t matter if it’s black or white”…

Standard

… is a line that Michael Jackson definitely didn’t sing in his 90’s ‘Macaulay Culkin rapping’ pop hit ‘Black or White’.
It is also not a sentiment that holds true when talking about the almost mythical White iPhone. People want them, people want to be them and as yet no-one is able to live the dream. Sadly, Steve ‘Jobbers’ Jobs took a break from his day job of showing how all other makes of mobile phone have shit signal, to announce that the new White iPhone wasn’t happening anytime soon. Apple fans were less than joyful to have the only definite timescale described as ‘later in 2010‘. This is very much like when my wife asks me to do the washing up to which I reply ‘yeah, in a bit’ the truth being God alone knows when it’ll actually happen.
Well today, I am God because I can tell you when you can have a white iPhone, that time is……..

about now.

Yup, using the latest in state of the art ‘MS Paint’ technology, our* team of artists have spent literally minutes creating these new white iPhone covers which can be yours today, for free.


Simply :

a) Print out the covers above
2) Cut them out with scissors (scissors are by their very nature sharp, please be careful)
$) Using sticky tape or some kind of glue, attach them to your current iPhone.

Bingo bango! White iPhone supremacy is yours. Please be warned, sexual offers from members of the opposite sex will multiply by almost 0.2% so be careful out there.

As for the signal problems, well, I can’t help you there although this man can.

*I used the term ‘our’ even though it’s just me who writes this shit.
