McCartney to get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

When I got a press release in my email box announcing Paul McCartney will be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I was fairly surprised that he didn't have one already.

Fellow Beatles John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr all have stars. Heck, even Roseanne and Slim Whitman are immortalized there.

So what took Paul so long? I don't think he would have trouble coming up with the $30,000 nominating fee. If you're going to get a star, you first have be nominated, and also have to agree to make a personal appearance at the ceremony. And what do you know? Paul's ceremony is set for next Thursday, two days after his album of standards, "Kisses on the Bottom" comes out. How convenient!

I rather enjoyed the press release from the fine folks at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as it gave the highlights of Paul's career, noting how he changed the world forever with the Beatles, his solo work, his philanthropic activities and being knighted by the Queen. But my favorite part was at the very end.

"2012 and, as ever, brings an infinite set of new possibilities for Paul McCartney. If any new musical frontier awaits—be it an entirely new musical medium or genre, a city or song he’s never played before, or something the cleverest among us has yet to imagine--rest assured Paul is already on his way there…"

It boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
