Imagine Agent York getting Delta to give him access to intercom system because he has an important message, and at three AM in the morning on October 1st, he wakes EVERYONE on the MOI up by screaming “IT’S HALLOWEEN WAKE UP FUCKERS”
George Harrison holding his 1970 solo album All Things Must Pass; screen capture from Living in the Material World. The album reached number 1 on the Billboard charts on 2 January 1971 and remained there for seven weeks(simultaneously, “My Sweet Lord” was at no. 1 on the singles charts).
“No, not really. It was the biggest thrill in a way that it was my first record. To be able to do all my own songs on one record was a novelty at that point, you know.” - George Harrison on whether he considered All Things Must Pass his best sustained work, Associated Press, February/March 2001

“An Apple Scruff was a Beatle fan that came to Apple every day Monday through Friday. Everybody knows the name of their business was Apple, and we hung out on the front steps of their building, waiting for them to arrive. And then once they’d arrived, we were waiting for them to leave.When George finished the song ‘Apple Scruffs’, he asked us to all come in. And of course, we were dumbfounded because we were never asked to come in. We’re all sitting in there and they turn on the song ‘Apple Scruffs’. ‘Apple Scruffs, how I love you.’ It was amazing. We were all in a little huddle around him. He handed us this letter.
[reading in full] ‘Dear Carol, Cathy and Lucy. Now as it’s finished - and off to the factory. I thought I’d tell you that I haven’t a clue whether it’s good or bad as I’ve heard it too much now! During the making of this epic album (most expensive album EMI ever had to pay for) I have felt positive and negative - pleased and displeased, and all the other opposites expected to be found in this material world. However, the one thing that didn’t waver, seems to me, to be ‘you three’ and Mal, always there as my sole supporters, and even during my worst moments I always felt the encouragement from you was sufficient to make me finish the thing. Thanks a lot, I am really overwhelmed by your apparent undying love, and I don’t understand it at all! Love from George (P.S. Don’t hold this evidence against me.) P.P.S. Phil Spector loves you too!
He was a sweet man.” - Cathy Sarver, Beatles Stories: A Fab Four Fan’s Ultimate Road Trip [x]
I never played Four Swords, so I only know what he’s like in Minish Cap. It’s been so long since I played the game, so all I remember is that I liked him and I thought he was cute (but that might be because I’m fond of the color purple).
It’s too bad that Hyrule Warriors doesn’t have much representation for handheld Zelda games. I would love to play as Vaati.
Hera relaxing! Hera relaxing! Downtime for Hera Syndulla! The only way this could have been more perfect is if Hera has been wearing fluffy slippers. Hera book is far more important than Kanan’s indignation at learning something.
Are people not aloud to boo someone because they don't like him? Like do I have to have a reason to boo roman or dean or Dana or cena?
To answer the question straightforwardly: you and everyone else are entitled to their own opinions. You can clap, boo, or ignore: you’re the one watching. The following part is a rant of a bit.
If you have a certain liking to a certain person and I happen to not like them, we can engage in a friendly argument. Pros and cons should be taken in and acknowledged-not thrown out because of your ideas.
I’ve met many people who don’t like Becky Lynch, and if you haven’t seen my blog before, I’m a bit of an avid fan. I can ask them why, and people usually blow up on me (in all caps) with nonsense.
IF YOU HAVE A LEGITIMATE REASON NOT TO LIKE SOMEONE, PLEASE DO EXPLAIN. But if someone doesn’t agree, don’t start screaming nonsense and throwing curses.
For example: “I don’t like Roman Reigns,” says someone in a YouTube comment section. They can supply reasons - how he’s booked, his decent mic skills, etc. I can bring in that it isn’t Joe Anoa'i’s fault for his booking. I can bring in that you can complain about his fanbase, but it isn’t his fault that his fans do something. We can engage in an argument there.
However, if someone says, “I HATE BECKY LYNCH YOU WHITE SHEMALE FAGGOT MAN VOICE ORANGE HAIR FREAK DIE AND WORSHIP QUEEN ALEXA,” I can offend your lack of a) sentence structure, and b) opinions and word choice that make you seem close-minded. (I have encountered this and much more before, let me tell you!)
Sorry if this is more than what you bargained for, anon.
Why do you hate Ginny? I'm looking for real criticism here. Not just spouting things in all caps.
Well the question was a character you hate for no good reason and mine is Ginny. But to elaborate the best I can because I really don’t have legitimate criticism (because she’s just a character I can’t stand) other than I found her to be extremely annoying and predictable.
I also felt like JK Rowling was shoving her down our throats towards the end. Making her out to be some kind of a badass when she was literally a whiny little thing in the book before. I just didn’t like her and I think Bonnie Wright made it a little worse for me too when I started watching the films. I’m not hating on Bonnie but her portrayal didn’t help my distaste for Ginny.
I also didn’t like the Ginny Harry pairing, that was really predictable. I knew from from early on that they would end up together. Granted, I also knew Hermione and Ron would make it but at least their relationship was tested and actually felt relatable. Ginny just felt like a filler character, like she really had no purpose other than to screw things up in Chamber and then just be there whenever something needed to happen or be said. I don’t know, I’m sorry for Ginny Weasley lovers but I just really didn’t like her. I wanted to but I just don’t.
I know a lot of people can argue her purpose because believe me, my best friend and I get into arguments about it because she is a die hard Ginny Weasley supporter. But that is my opinion on her and it’ll probably never change.

“Working with George [Harrison] was always a joy.” - Ken Scott, Premier Guitar, 19 March 2010

“[George Harrison] was so much more than The Beatles.
As a guitarist he eventually got his own unique sound when you could always tell it was him. There are very few guitarists that can say that. You can hear a blues guitarist and it could be any number of guitarists; their styles are very similar. With George, he was just completely different from anyone else.” - Ken Scott, Finding Zoso, 4 December 2012

Ken Scott: “I learned very early on not to get star-struck. He [George Harrison] was the exception until the last day I saw him.”
Red Bull Music Academy: “Why him more than the other Beatles? It seems like he was the one you had the strongest relationship with.”
KS: “Yeah, I was the strongest with him. He was just an amazing person. There’s been so much written about him being dour and down the entire time and the quiet one. Eric Idle once said of George, that he was always quoted as being the quiet Beatle, but anyone that knew him knew that once he started there was no shutting him up. As far as being dour, he was one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. Just as an example, they were mixing “Yellow Submarine,” surround sound, at Abbey Road, and George and Ringo were invited to go and hear what they were doing. They’re upstairs listening, and it just so happened down in number one, the very big studio at Abbey Road, Mel Gibson was doing music for one of his movies, I think it was The Patriot at the time. And typically, with any of the Beatles, the top film stars, if it’s a Beatle they’ve got to meet them. It’s, they’re above everyone. So, Mel Gibson heard that Ringo and George were upstairs and he passed word up, could he go up and meet them. Word came back down, ‘Yeah, sure, send him up.’ So, he went upstairs and he meets Ringo first, he shakes hands and all of that, then it’s George’s turn, and George just turns and looks and he said, ‘I thought you said it was Mel Brooks.’“
"Mel Gibson’s jaw just hit the ground and George said, 'Don’t worry, I know who you are.’”
But that’s the way he was, he was an amazing individual. He could give two hoots about the business, really. He always used to get pissed off because it was always: 'George Harrison, ex-Beatle.’ And, he, ‘That was six years of my life, what about the rest of the stuff.’ He hated being that ex-Beatle being after his name all the time.“ - 2013

“George Harrison has got a lot of, shall we say, bad press from one book [Geoff Emerick’s] and I want to dispute that. George was one of the funniest guys I ever met and I was blessed to spend a lot of time with George just before his passing, and just a quick story from that. One of the - we were putting together the remaster of All Things Must Pass, and Phil Collins, the ex-drummer of Genesis and also the lead singer, has often told this story in interviews, how he played on All Things Must Pass, he played congas on something. And no one remembers him playing on it, no one has any proof that he did it, but he has continually told this story. So whilst we’re doing the - some overdubs on additional tracks for the remaster, we have a percussionist by the name of Ray Cooper come in. And George - we’re finishing everything up and George then suddenly tells me to put up a particular track, and he says to Ray, ‘Okay, I want you to play congas on this, and I want you to play them badly. I don’t want them really badly, just off enough that it would really set someone slightly off.‘ So we recorded it, George said, ‘Okay, now do a quick rough mix of it and keep the congas up fairly loud.’ So I did that and we then made a CD of it, and George gave it to Ray and he said, ‘Next time you see Phil, give him this and tell him we finally found his congas.’ [laughter] So Ray goes, he sees Phil, he gives him this CD and apparently Phil was ecstatic: ‘Finally I’ve got the proof, I’ve got the proof!’ He takes it home, he plays it, he wants to cry. [laughter] Two weeks later, George called up and said, ‘Gotcha.’ [laughter] That was the Mr. Harrison I knew.” - Ken Scott, Beatlefest, 2013
