Paul McCartney: Yoko Didn’t Break Up The Beatles, Really

““She certainly didn’t break the group up. I don’t think you can blame her for anything. … When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things,” he continued. “She showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for Joh…

Be My Boyfriend: Rutherford Chang Has Nearly 700 Copies Of The Beatles’ The White Album

Dear Rutherford,

I heard you’re a Beatles fan, which is great. I mean, I guess that takes care of that difficult “are you a Beatles or a Rolling Stones fan” discussion. In fact, you might be the biggest Beatles fan, owing to your obsessive collecting and cataloging of their records. Specifically The White Album.

Yoko Ono Will Write Her Memoir Before 2015

The thing I remember most about my lame boyfriend from sophomore year of college was his seething hatred of Yoko Ono. According to my ex, the Beatles were the most brilliant band in the world and they only broke up because some hussy brainwashed John Lennon. I just ignored that quirk in his personality at…

The Best Film No One Knows About Yet

I spent my Christmas vacation in Dublin. After too much Guinness and too many hurricane-like rainstorms, my friends and I decided to duck into the Irish Film Institute to get warm and dry. It turned out to be a fantastic decision. Right as we slogged in, the film “Nowhere Boy” was about to begin.

Have you ever dreamed that you slept with your father? Or rode a mechanical bull while a coworker watched? We have and were disturbed for months. Fortunately, dreams don’t always mean what you think they do, and having sex with your father is nothing to worry about, so long as it only happens in your
