To live an extraordinary life, you can't live it in an ordinary way. -W Callaway

Thanks to my friend Scott for sending me this: "Fifty years ago this week, the Beatles hit the road --- as the opening act for 16-year-old Helen Shapiro. This clip is from British TV, later that year. Ringo said that her dressing room was nicer than theirs, and that they had to ask to watch her personal TV set. Unlucky she was after that -- her record label, Columbia, rejected the chance to have her record the Beatles' "Misery", then after that, Lesley Gore's "it's my party". Obscurity, meet Helen."
