[#678]: Savoy Truffle

I just read this about one of my favorite songs by the Beatles, Savoy Truffle:

The song was written by George in retribution to Eric Clapton for stealing George’s girlfriend at the time. He didn’t like Clapton after that, and wrote this slam, because Clapton’s favorite chocolates were a box of “Good News” variety pack. And his favorite of that pack was the Savoy Truffle, so he saved it til the end. And George is saying that after the Savoy Truffle, all Clapton’s teeth will have to be pulled.

Pretty awesome. I also read that they were the devil and tools of the Illumnati. I think I’ll ignore that one.

[#677]: George Harrison: Living in the Material Word

Currently on HBO there is a special playing called George Harrison: Living in the Material World. Directed by Martin Scorsese and produced by George’s wife, Olivia.

Richard Corliss from Time Magazine wrote in review of the doc “Let a million fans smile while watching Living in the Material World, and a million guitars gently weep.”

It truly is a great documentary for showing more of “the quiet Beatle” in the best way possible. Also for showing things that are almost nearly impossible to find ourselves, even through the help of the all mighty Google and his V6 engines.

Like this bit on when George and John Lennon being interviewed on “Mysticism”. I thought how poignant it was what George mentioned in response, how timely it was that they simply sat and discussed their thoughts, and it was worth the time of television programming! Almost like the time of Socrates, almost. How is this all lost in time? Oh well thanks to the camera on my phone I can share.

[Please disregard the shakiness, I am no Scorsese]
