Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Abbey Road print sold

The auctioned print
The aforementioned Abbey Road outtake photo print has sold for £16,000 at the auction yesterday afternoon. The photograph was expected to sell for around £9,000, but ended up going for £7,000 more than that after frenzied bidding took place at the Bloomsbury auction house in central London. Initially bidding began at £6,000, but quickly escalated and ended up with a figure of £16,000 in less than one minute, NME reports. Snap Galleries in London were selling them for a fraction of that only last month, London Beatles tour guide Richard Porter mentioned on Facebook today. Meanwhile, a better version of the same photo has been on display at TheBeatles.com since 2009. What was all the fuzz about?
