13. The Beatles – Don’t start screaming. The Beatles is just a dumb pun. We’ve heard it a million times, so we accept it and they’re the best group ever, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a dumb name.

Our favorite Beatle, Ringo Starr, in the studio. Still performing, still a pleasure, those other Beatles did him a favor by breaking up, imho. (via juliasegal)
National Lampoon editor Tony Hendra (better known for playing Spinal Tap’s manager) used actual quotes from John Lennon’s infamous 1970 Rolling Stone interview with Jann Wenner for this satirical number, “Genius Is Pain.” At the time of the interview, Dangerous Minds reminds us, Lennon was undergoing Primal Scream therapy and he seriously let go of his inhibitions, screaming shit about his own fans, Mick Jagger, Paul and Linda McCartney, George Harrison, and several others. All Hendra did was edit the best quotes and arrange them into lyrics. It was originally released in 1972 on the Radio Dinner LP. If you’re looking at this in the office, it’s best to turn the volume way down or wear phones.
Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey (his mother is Ringo’s first wife Maureen) pleased fans yesterday by signing drumsticks outside Hollywood’s rock ‘n’ roll hotel, the Sunset Marquis. Zac, of course, is also a drummer and performs and records with The Who. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that War Horse star Benedict Cumberbatch (at left) has signed on to portray Brian Epstein (on the right), the closeted manager of the Beatles, in a biopic produced by Tom Hanks (remember that thing he did?). Epstein, it’s said, “threw the biggest party in the ’60s, but forgot to invite himself.” Whatever that’s supposed to mean, Epstein was in fact a drug addict and a homosexual who was in love with John Lennon but never got around to coming out. He died of an overdose in 1967 – but not before turning the Liverpudlian moptops into superstars. It’s a juicy story, and if Cumberbatch can pull it off, Epstein will also be known as the man who turned the actor into a star. Problem is, the movie will be directed by Paul McGuigan, Cumberbatch’s Sherlock director.
Honestly, it’s really stressful trying to isolate even one song from the hash. As Marc Campbell at Dangerous Minds remarks, “It’s like being attacked by a giant swarm of Beatles.” Our kind of mashup. But it also sounds like it could be tedious new product from Lou Reed. Complete list of tunes here.
