With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Don’t be scared I’ve done this before” November 9, 2011


Recently one of John Lennon’s teeth was put up for auction. Lennon gave the tooth to Dot Jarlett his housekeeper in the 60s. At auction it raised £19,500 as it was bought, rather appropriately, by a Canadian dentist who goes by the name of Michael Zuk. He has written a book about celebrities teeth and intends to display the molar at his surgery! I wonder if Lennon lost the tooth because he ate most of the Jelly Babies thrown on stage on their US tours in the 60s. The jelly Babies were a result of Ringo answering a question about his favourite sweet in a fan magazine. Alternatively  of course perhaps Lennon bit off more than he could chew with the ‘Beatles are bigger than Jesus’ comment. No doubt there are some Christian Fundamentalists in the US who actually believe that kind of crap and see it as divine retribution.

Karen Fairweather from Omega Auctions, described the tooth as: “rather gruesome, yellowy, browny with a cavity” Lennon gave it to Jarlett on return from the dentist. He is alleged to have asked her to dispose of it or “better still give it to your daughter as a souvenir.” Her daughter was apparently a Beatles fan.

The tooth was a part of Alan McGee’s (Creation Records founder and Oasis manager) collection of memorabilia. He is selling his collection as he is sick of the music industry.

Before I finish with some appropriate tooth related music I would like to thank my good friend Tom Wycks for pointing me to this story. All I did was fill in the gaps. Tom and his Mum also selected the three tooth songs that you are about to listen to. The third choice is Tom’s Mums pick and I must say I think that is probably the first time that Max Bygraves has ever appeared in this blog!

 

“Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes” June 9, 2010


This is a post about kaleidoscopes, the reason for which will become clear later. So let’s start with a definition shall we?

Kaleidoscope (ka – lei – do – scope)
–noun
1. an optical instrument in which fragments of glass, held loosely at the end of a rotating tube, are shown in continually changing symmetrical forms by reflection in two or more mirrors set at angles to each other.
2. a continually changing pattern of shapes and colors.
3. a constantly shifting pattern, or scene.

I could add a fourth here which would say 4. the best Virtual Assistant on the planet with the best Virtual Assistant Website on the planet.
