The narrative that I've come to believe about this period is that yeah, they were really tired and they just didn't want to be Beatles anymore, except for Paul, more or less. But the appearance of video cameras plus bringing in Billy Preston rekindled some "I actually like playing with these guys" vibes for them. I think if they hadn't committed to being filmed, if they didn't end acrimoniously, they would just have drifted apart.

The supposed story about Paul barring Billy Preston from officially joining the band after John posed the idea, insisting that the Beatles were a white band, is a real bummer

Ah shit, I've never heard that story before. Wouldn't be surprised though. Not the same thing, I guess, but the Stones making Ian Stewart play in the dark area of the stage cause he was fat was horrible shit.

it's actually recorded in the get back sessions, 1-24-69

John: Ours too...I'd like him to be in our band, actually... fifth Beatle.

Paul: I just don't, because, it's bad enough for four, and a spade, and it's creating havoc. I dig him. He's an incredible musician, but none of that.


I've always interpreted it (and told others about it) in an uncharitable way, but i don't actually think Paul is primarily concerned with keeping the Beatles white, it's more him being annoyed with John like "you don't want to be in this band anymore why are you talking about adding someone"

I also think there's something later (though I can't find it again) where he expands a little on it and says it's just using Preston, like the only reason John wants him in the band is to stir shit up publicly.

I think the first one is stupid, but he's right about the second, and John is also immediately like "yeah it could be our 'i have a dream' moment" which I think shows a lot about where he's coming from

“It wasn’t a big thing,” he said. “But, you know, it was just the kind of thing you didn’t think much of. It was just a group. Yeah, it’s quite raunchy when you think about it.


it didn't occur to me at all in 1964 that group masturbation with my guy chums was at all salacious or risque', but upon reflection...

It's really interesting to hear a lot of the stuff that wasn't shown in the original movie that kinda squashed a lot of the rumors surrounding the Beatles. The whole "they won't play George's songs" idea is kinda erased once you realized they practiced All Things Must Pass like 20 times and George was the one to pull it from the lineup. They kept trying to play his songs apparently, and if you look at the Let It Be tracklist and realize George took off ATMP, McCartney, Lennon, and Harrison would pretty much have an equal amount of tracks on the album.

I'm hoping the new doc series brings a lot of this to light.

interesting

Apparently, John and/or Paul smoked weed before Dylan, but didn’t realize they were high cuz they were drinking. I believe Dylan reintroduced it to them and that’s when they fell in love with the grinch finger.

so many youtube comments praising jackson for his restoration work, and it's like... really? it's smoothed out to the point of absurdity.

Ah fuck, looks like Jackson got enamored with the software they used on They Shall Not Grow Old. In that case the frame interpolation was necessary to correct for the variable frame rates caused by hand-cranked cameras, and also the sharpening and cleanup was well used to help footage that had degraded over time. Here it just sucks the life out of everything. The grain is the character! The only reason why it makes sense to remove grain is when you have to composite in VFX elements, and even then pretty much everyone reapplies some artificial grain to marry the elements together.

Ray tracing? There's none of that here. You can't ray trace unless you're simulating a scene in 3D. This is just a smoothing tool and a color correction pass to shift blues to teal and pinks to orange. For some reason white people are embarrassed that they tend toward redder skin colors.

Blah one more thing about any sort of smoothing that I hate is there's an idea that it gives better clarity. That's wrong. It sort of looks that way in still images because the delineations are sharper, but actually the human visual system uses noise in its processing layers to give more information to the cortex. We already have a smoothing algorithm in our brains. So when the software does it first you're robbing yourself of information to be interpreted. Yeah sure the footage might feel cleaner like it was a CG render but that's just slickness, you're losing out on how well film or digital sensors capture the reality. If you ever try and make out something in the dark by your eyes it's hugely helped by the fact our rod and cone cells capture noise.

@loafangel oops, I know Brittle works in photography so he probably knows all this. It's just kinda my bugbear working in film.
