Dave Grohl shared some details on the new Fighters record.
He said: “It’s badass. We’re doing something that nobody knows about, it’s rad. We begin recording soon, but we’re doing it in a way that no one’s done before and we’re writing the album in a way that I don’t think has been done before.”
Louise Harrison is the sister of late-Beatle George Harrison. She’s living in a modest home in Missouri alone. The 82-year-old lives alone and has been cut-off from Harrison’s will. She still has to work as a manager of a Beatles tribute band.
Louise Harrison also claims she’s not bitter that she was cut off from a $2,000 monthly pension after Harrison died from cancer in 2001.
Harrison was worth more than $300 million when he died, but his sister is struggling to get by. Her brother lived in a 120-room Victorian mansion outside London, which he left to his wife Olivia and son Dhani.
She had been given a $2,000 a month pension by her brother for tax reasons in 1980 to help her get by, but she found herself cut off by her brother’s estate almost a year to the day he died. She wasn’t given a reason why, but Louise knows that if her brother was still alive she would be getting the money.
She says she doesn’t have any blame for anyone and was brought up as a Harrison and to be self-reliant.
Louise moved to Illinois with her Scottish mining engineer husband and had two children in the late 50s. At the same time, George met Paul McCartney and they joined a band named The Quarrymen, which was one of the first names The Beatles tried out. Louise took it upon herself to visit every small-town DJ she could and asked them to play her “kid brother’s band’s” songs. “From Me To You” got played on a local Illinois radio station in 1963 and it’s the first known example of The Beatles getting airplay in the United States. She still has letters from Beatles manager Brian Epstein, who expressed gratitude for how she helped them break into America.
The brother and sister spent the 60s and the 70s very close, but George distanced himself from her in the mid-90s because he disapproved of the conversion of her old home into a “Beatles bed-and-breakfast” that she called “A Hard Day’s Night.”
When George was dying in a hospital in New York, they reunited. They parted with what she calls a “Harrison hug.”
A Colorado woman woke up in the middle of the night to feed her young son, she noticed a missed call on her cell phone. That call came from number 1-666-666-6666. The 48 texts that followed all came from different numbers but all had the word “Satan.”
If you call the number you get a recording that it’s no longer in service. If you Google the number you find other people who have been pranked by the same source. The numbers associated with the text messages don’t work either.
The woman is still a little freaked out by what happened. She hopes it was just a random prank.
What a crappy way to make a living! A man named S.S. Singh is a professional scatomancer, meaning he can tell the future by analyzing poop!
“It’s a lost art. You’d be surprised how accurate it actually is,” Singh explains in a new documentary, Journey to Planet Sanity. He asks his customers to bring him a stool sample, then he sets it in a bowl in front of him and examines it by feeling and smelling it. It sounds thoroughly disgusting, but according to Singh, you have to really get into it for the prediction to be spot-on. We think he’s just full of crap.
