Comments and the spam filter

Fished around in the spam filter today and retrieved two actual comments, one by ChelseaQW and one by Virginia Abreau de Paula –they’re now showing up in the appropriate threads. Everyone, if you submit a comment and it’s not posted within a few hours, please resend it. (Like George in “Blue Jay Way,” we may be asleep—but there’s also a chance the filter sucked in your comment. Either way, no harm in resending.)

I made it to page 21 of 910 spam comment pages, folks. It’s no wonder the poor, hardworking thing shorts out occasionally and captures a real person’s remark—the inundation of garbage is unceasing. Sadly, most spam “comments” are now nothing more than clickable links. However, please enjoy the following. (All SPAM comments are direct quotes dredged up from the filter.)

    Interesting Ringo article from last April… Here are some quotes:
    .
    There are times when Ringo can be quite acerbic. “I was having dinner with him recently in L.A. with Dave Grohl and our wives,” says Paul McCartney. “I know Ringo has been sober for years, so I joked, ‘C’mon, Ringo, have a whiskey.’ Ringo looked at me for a second and says, ‘What, and end up looking like you?’ I deserved it.”

    .
    “I don’t want to bring in the violins, but we all came from hardship,” says McCartney. “All of us except for George lost someone. I lost my mum when I was 14. John lost his mum. But Ringo had it worst. His father was gone; he was so sick they told his mum he wasn’t going to live. Imagine making up your life from that, in that environment. No family, no school. He had to invent himself. We all had to come up with a shield, but Ringo came up with the strongest shield.”

    .
    “It’s family,” says McCartney. “Sometimes we get pissed off at each other. I’ll want something from him and he won’t give it to me, and I’ll get pissed off. But then it passes. Brothers fight sometimes. There’s this revisionist history that it was all John and Paul. But it was four corners of a square; it wouldn’t have worked without one of the sides. Ringo was the right angle.”

    .
    “Paul said he’s going to do the Hall of Fame speech,” says Ringo. He then speaks in dry British wit. “I really think I’m doing it just to give Paul a night out. He likes to keep busy.” He pauses before turning serious. “But the other side of that coin is that we would not have made as many records if it hadn’t have been for Paul. John and I lived very close, and we could get lazy. And Paul would call: ‘Hey, lads. Time we went back in the studio.’ So we’ve got to thank him that you’ve got 12 records.”

    .
    “The first few minutes that Ringo is playing, I look to the left at George and to the right to John, and we didn’t say a word, but I remember thinking, ‘Shit, this is amazing,’ ” says McCartney. He paused to think for a second and then gave an impolitic example. “Look, I love Led Zeppelin, but you watch them playing and you can see them looking back at John Bonham, like, ‘What the hell are you doing — this is the beat.’ You could turn your back on Ringo and never have to worry. He both gave you security and you knew he was going to nail it.”

    Thank you Paul. And thank you Ringo for acknowledging for the record, who was the “real force” behind getting the music done. We already know “bossy” Paul made sure it was not only done, but done right. The real unsung leader of the world’s most famous band.
