nineninenine and the ghost of john lennon

9.9.9 is the date of the remastered beatles catalogue release. God bless the beatles of course, they have brought peace love and understanding to millions, but I can't help but wonder how many people will be shelling out for music they've already bought before. It's not inconceivable that the majority of buyers will be buying the music for at least the third time. Vinyl, CD, now remastered CD. 

Not to mention the ghost of John Lennon. My evening nap in front of the tv was interrupted by a badly-spliced voice over a dodgy clip of the great man himself. Laptops for every child may be a worthy cause, but does anyone have the right to put words into a dead man's mouth? He may, if alive, have argued that clean water for all is a bigger priority - we simply don't know. Press play and weep...
