  1. Actual Beetles Killed Actual Beatle George Harrison’s Memorial Tree

    What will become of Monroe Yoder's memorial beet farm?

    The Beatles' George Harrison had a tree planted in his memory in 2004 in Los Angeles where the musician spent the last few years of his life. In a strange twist of fate, the tree was recently infested with real, actual, non-musical beetles and died.

  2. Chris Hadfield Keeps Being the Best, Covers “Across the Universe” With the Wexford Gleeks

    They tumble blindly as they make their way across the internet.

    Canadian astronaut, musician, and our collective geek crush Chris Hadfield appeared on CBC News Toronto recently, and part of his appearance was a performance of the Beatles classic "Across the Universe" with the Wexford Gleeks. The choir tries to force some Christmas music into it to fit with a "Sounds of the Season" theme, but enjoy it anyway.

  3. Paul McCartney Jammed With Nirvana at 12-12-12 Benefit Concert, Minds Were Blown

    Those attending the 12-12-12 concert for Sandy relief last night were hit with a dual nostalgia wave of mid-'90s grunge and Beatlemania when former Beatles bassist Paul McCartney was joined on the stage by Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and even Pat Smear of Nirvana fame. Rumors had circulated for quite some time prior to the benefit concert regarding McCartney playing alongside a reunited Nirvana, with some going as far to assume that the Beatle had brought the band together himself or that he was actually going to join them. Misinformed hyperbole aside, fans praised McCartney temporarily filling in for the late Kurt Cobain as Nirvana's frontman.

  4. Report: The Beatles Are Coming to iTunes Tomorrow

    We hope this isn't all there is to tomorrow's Apple announcement about iTunes (come on, cloud distribution!), but it certainly does vindicate some theories about the meaning of the clock-themed invitation Apple sent out: The Wall Street Journal reports that the music of The Beatles is indeed coming to iTunes after years of rumors.
    "Apple Inc. is preparing to announce that its iTunes Store will soon start carrying music by the Beatles, according to people familiar with the situation, a move that would fill in a glaring gap in the collection of the world's largest music retailer. The deal resulted from talks that were taking place as recently as last week among executives of Apple, representatives of the Beatles and their record label, EMI Group Ltd., according to these people, who also warned that there is still a chance that Apple could change plans at the last minute."
    If the rumors are true, it's worth pointing out that Apple was actually beaten to the punch in securing rights to The Beatles' catalog by Harmonix, which released The Beatles: Rock Band a little over a year ago.

  5. The Blues Brothers and Other Cool Things the Vatican Endorsed

    On the 30th anniversary of the 1980 musical comedy movie The Blues Brothers, The Vatican's official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano advised Catholics worldwide to watch the film. Developed from the two Saturday Night Live sketch characters played by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, the Blues Brothers embark on "a mission from God" in the movie, to save the Catholic orphanage where they grew up from foreclosure. So retroactively topical! So it got us thinking, what other cool or geeky things have the Vatican been known to admit to liking? Hit the jump and find out.
