today im trying to get started on robert burton's anatomy of melancholy

a very readable online edition can be found here: http://www.exclassics.com/anatomy/anatint.htm

the one i found on gutenberg is a mess, all words jumbled on the page, at least the kindle version. this one is better, the pdf version is more than decent.

not sure i'll manage to read it but have to give it a shot...

It's nearly a 1000 pages and only covers the Beatles up to 1962. One for the geeks is putting it lightly! Good read so far, mind.

Also, never has the saying 'don't judge a book by its cover' ever been more apt than in this one. Who the fuck thought that was a decent cover. You can go on microsoft word and come up with a better cover than that.

Do Liverpudlians get a discount on books about The Beatles?

I'm almost certain I saw that at the library with a different cover.

Not sure why I didn't pick it up. It was free after all.

Oh yeah. 1000 pages.

No. They're expected to have all the knowledge about them ingrained before their 5th birthday.

Funny thing is there's an extended edition that's 1700 pages. That's taking it a tad too far for me.

I'd read the fuck out of that Beatles book. Never heard of it before. Is there a second volume that covers their pop culture domination? Or, like, the first three years of it?

Been a while since I had a good Beatles read. Love me a Beatles book.

not reading any Game of Thrones!

just finished Exit Ghost. A bit scattered about, but Roth is sure a commander of the language.

It's part of a trilogy and he's still writing the second one. I was pretty peeved to find that it's "expected" to come out in 2020 -_- He said he reckons he'll take that one from 1963-67

I've nearly finished this one now and honestly, it might as well be seen as the last word on the Beatles. No one is gonna top the amount of depth, research, myth destroying as has gone on in this book.

I've just got past Stuart Sutcliffe's death which was pretty heartbreaking. Paul just comes across as a total cunt over his treatment of Stuart.

Started Joe Hill's The Fireman yesterday. Definitely been on that Joe Hill kick the past few months with Locke & Key, I've been so focused on reading GNs though its been awhile since I've read a novel without the graphics.

Aw man I really want to read it now but just started two new books that I'm determined to finish. I'm more interested in the next phase, but I enjoy reading about the Beatles period.

Also, Paul was a major cunt a lot of the time, it seems. Don't you think? John gets the cunt treatment most, but Paul was not all sunshine and puppy songs. He was a bit of a precious little shit, and control freak.

Remember in the Anthology film? There's one scene where Paul and George are under a tree, and Paul is regaling the interviewer with some tales from this period or that, and kind of being passive aggressive, and George just sits there and quietly strums his guitar and doesn't say a Fucking word. Tension is palpable. Harrison had spent a lifetime putting up with the guy's shit, and was just not even Fucking around anymore. What an uncomfortable series that was. Haha.
