Ringo Starr no longer wants to deal with fan mail? He says he has an awfully busy schedule, and does not want to be signing or reading anything anymore. I mean, as the least talented of the most legendary musical group the world has ever known, that is awfully presumptuous of him! Say it ain't so Ringo! What gives man? You were supposed to be the most accessible, the friendliest, the most down-to-earth of all of the Beatles. Now in your late 60s, you sound like some bitter, uppity, conceited has-been! I'm a bit disappointed I suppose, but what do I know about being a celebrity and getting fan mail right?! There's more on Ringo retiring from pleasing his fans here. Oh, and here as well. What do you think?
I'm so painfully accustomed to city living, that the idea of having to rough it, even for a weekend of camping is not my idea of fun. Yeah, live a little WAT! I'm spoiled beyond repair, and sometimes that makes me feel very inadequate. What would happen were there to be some big earthquake in LA., God forbid! I better get to storing food and water man! I don't know the first thing about growing my own plants or hunting animals! In watching the masterful, tremendous, and enlightening movie called Into The Wild last night, I was reminded of how brave and courageous the main character Christopher McCandless was in giving up his once comfortable civilized life to go and just live out in nature like a Native American. Or was he just plain stupid? A powerful film this is; highly emotional and full of lessons. A must see! Terrific acting here and way ta go director Sean Penn! Would you just walk away from yer comfy home, your friends/family, and stable job to selfishly live out in nature to find yourself? Don't answer that Bill.
And for Halloween, ya gots ta get your hands on the DVD Dead Silence. Effective, creepy, non-gory, and full of twists that keep ya glued to the screen! YEEHA!
