So, today fucking sucks! (I warned you.) Like, seriously!  I hate being cold and clammy and not able to dry my clothes.  I'd rather have cramps or a sunburn on my ass ...  But anyway, how are you?  Do you have your tea?  Do you have a warm blanket to curl up under?  If you do, it sounds like you're ready to watch some TV.  I know hunkering down in my living room and watching stuff makes me feel better, so here is a list of some of my  favorite, rainy day comfort DVDs:

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for some of the classic Disney movies.  101 Dalmatians was always one of my favorites.  How cute is Roly asking for more food?
  "I'm hungry, mother.  I really am."
My brothers and I used to wake up early on Saturday mornings to watch this movie. (Keep in mind we couldn't get up and make it to school on time to save our lives, but you bet yer ass we were up on Saturdays to watch cartoons!)

I also love Peter Pan.  I always wanted to be a lost boy (or at least Wendy) and fly away.  "Second star to the right and straight on til morning."  Pirates, fairies and a crocodile with a clock in his tail... hell yeah!

KL: The Beatles and The Beach Boys are my earliest music memories.  Actually, I still have a Shirley Temple record that was the one record I would beg my dad to play for me.  “The Good Ship Lollipop” was my song!

ME:  Seeing as you are one of the biggest Beatles fans currently working here, I think this is a really important question for you:  Who is your favorite Beatle and why?

george harrison dark horseKL:  George.  I wept the day he died.  I think I always identified with him.  John was wonderful, but in a more outspoken way, whereas George was always thoughtful and understated.  He lived his live quietly and peacefully.  I once cut a quote out of a magazine where George tells what he said to the intruder who stabbed him at home: “I just shouted 'Hare krishna, hare krishna!'”  Oh, George.

ME: Yeah he really was the Dark Horse.  Which Beatles track is your favorite?

KL:  Well, there is a different answer every day, but “For You Blue” on Let It Be is one of my favorite George tracks.  “Cry Baby Cry” on the White Album.  “I’m Only Sleeping” on Revolver-- I dig the backwards guitar.
