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!

Lennon auction a success

Original manuscripts and drawings by John Lennon, produced for the two books he wrote in the mid-1960s, In His Own Write (1964) and A Spaniard in the Works (1965), sold for $2.9m (£1.73m) on Wednesday, more than double the pre-sale estimate, Sotheby's auction house said.

All of the 89 lots in the sale were snapped up by buyers, something auctioneers call a white glove sale.

The highlight of the sale was The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield, the manuscript for Lennon's parody of Sherlock Holmes from A Spaniard in the Works which fetched $209,000 (£125,000).

More about this in The Guardian.
