I Have an idea. The DVD Live Aid is used very expensive . My idea a New DVD or Blue Ray remastered against the hunger in Africa. Also a New Live Aid is an idea...But the reissue is a good way to help. And he helps poor children. Very Kind regards..Ingo
What he does with his loot is entirely his business; but from a FAN perspective I wish he would COMMAND less for his touring, which might go someway to making himself more accessible the WORLD over. As I've said often: how much MORE money does a septuagenarian near billionaire need?
Either that, or divide it up equally amongst us boardies! P.S. He is a billionaire in $!
But how do we know exactly how much of the money Paul actually keeps from the touring? We don't do we? He also has a huge staff on tour (the band, the roadies, assistants, security, drivers, etc) that all get paid as well, it is not all Paul's money.
We know that! We are referring to the money he does keep which is over 1 billion U.S. dollars (his net worth) Besides, we are just kidding around (mostly!)
I know this is an old post, but I feel like I should say something here. I am going to defend Harper here, and not because I am a Canadian, but because I am a person who appreciates great music (aka the Beatles). You can't really criticize the man for 'butchering' these songs. First, he isn't a trained singer, he is just a really big fan. And at least he is a fan of good music. It's not like he is getting up on stage and singing Wrecking Ball. I have on more than one occassion 'butchered' the Beatles. When my neice was first born, she went through a couple of months of really bad colic. So when I visited, in order to give her very tired parents a break, I would walk around the neighbourhood with her, sometimes in the middle of the night, pushing her stroller and singing to her. Obviously she was a fan of great music too, because the only song that she would stop singing for was 'I Want to Hold Your Hand.' I know for a fact that I didn't do it justice, especially not at 3am when I am tired, but I sang it anyway....over and over and over again, and to this day it is still the calming song that all of my neices love to hear me sing. Good music is something to be loved, admired, and sung. Even if it isn't sung well. Harper isn't trying to be offensive or ruin the song. He is merely enjoying himself, enjoying music, and giving a compliment to the best of the best. At least that's my take on it.
The world is going no where but a tremendous thing will happen : the big bang of consciousness, a mathematical model which joint economy, social sciences, history, religion and dependance theory to become a true science. I don't propose you an easy way, but a good chalenge motiving all people for a better life. I am not the lonely citizen described by Paul McCartney, but a true rassembler who was the president of University of Motreal residents association.
I read that Mr. McCartney is interested in polar bears. Now we have in Finland the first ever here born baby polar bear. You can watch it at YouTube, search: Ranua, polar bear. It is in an animal park, very peaceful place. You might have heard that we have them walking down the streets,but that is not true. P.S. Talking about animals: "all they remember is that one goat". Guess somebody remembers where this comes from?
He's quite down to earth in that respect, is Paul. Although his fame and the resulting security situation prevents it mostly, on rare occasions when he is able to safely reach out to "ordinary" people he does so. This is a most endearing facet of his nature; one for which I am most grateful. He is driven to increase his knowledge, and to improve his character. This makes him an excellent role model as well as someone people want to be around. We should all be so fortunate--but who among us is as fortunate as Paul? Even though I've made many mistakes, I've learned from them all (at least I think so!) The written word can be dangerous; as good writing means good proofreading (or somat.) Especially when it goes out into the ether. It's nice to know who you're talking to, but the anonymity of the internet can be a curse as well as a blessing if you don't realize... I wouldn't trade places with anyone on this earth. I like living in my own skin. I've come a long way, and God willing, I've still got a long way to go. But if there's anyone I would consider--even for a day, it would be Sir Paul...
Okay, so no one is up for this....in August 2012 there will be a world wide event to bring awareness to the general public of captive cetaceans (orcas, dolphins etc) They should not be in captivity, they are probably more inteligent than humans yet humans continue to buy tickets to see them perform in water circuses....join us on facebook, join us, wherever you are in the world, weekend of August 3rd 2012. Do we have Paul McCartneys support on this..we already have people like Richard Branson, Ric O'Barry, Jacque Cousteau and many more big names in the entertainment industy...and are working on more. Please help us if you can. Thankyou
This may not be the appropriate forum to discuss this, so if I am out of line, then Admin, please delete this thread. I received an e-mail today from change.org asking for signatures. Now I don't automatically sign every petition offered by this organization. For instance, I smoke. I know this is not a popular pastime according to others, but I do enjoy it. Now, change.org sometimes offers petitions which intrude on Personal Choice, in which case I strongly believe that they are then out of line for using mob rule to intrude against the rest of us. But this petition appears to be different. The cause is as follows: http://www.change.org/petitions/jc-penney-dont-break-your-promise-to-families-of-workers-who-died-making-your-clothes?
Petition Letter Don?t break your promise to families of workers who died making your clothes Greetings, I am writing to urge a just response from J.C. Penney to the fire that took the lives of 30 workers and injured hundreds more at ?That?s It Sportswear Factory? in Ashulia Industrial Park in Bangladesh on December 14, 2010. J.C. Penney has shamefully broken the public commitment it made in January to compensate the victims? families and to finally take real steps to stop these fires. As you know, other companies continue to negotiate in good faith with labor rights advocates to establish a fair compensation for workers and a meaningful fire safety program. How can you walk away from the commitment you made to your customers and the broader public? How can you walk away from the workers who produce your garments who are literally fighting to stay alive in their workplace? U.S. consumers want a substantive and meaningful response to incidents like this. More than 65,000 people from 71 countries called on you to act earlier in 2011 so that tragedies like this one never happen again. I support the large consortium of Bangladeshi and international groups calling on J.C. Penney to provide just compensation to the victims and their families and launch thorough, independent, well funded and publicly transparent safety inspections of all multi-story supplier factories in Bangladesh in the supply chain of each brand and retailer. I call on J.C. Penney to be a leader on fire safety in Bangladesh. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to your immediate response to this critical issue. [Your name]
