WonderWall -Penny Lane- pyschedelia London..

USS Scorpion (SSN-589) was a Skipjack-class nuclear submarine of the US Navy and the 6th vessel of the U.S. Navy to carry that name..The USS Scorpion is one of 2 nuclear subs the U.S. Navy has lost, the other being USS Thresher.. It was 1 of 4 mysterious sub disappearances in 1968; the others being the Israeli submarine INS Dakar, the French submarine Minerve (S647) and the Soviet sub K-129..During the 1968 inquiry, Vice Admiral Arnold F. Shade testified that he believed that a malfunction of the trash disposal unit (TDU) was the trigger for the disaster...The book All Hands Down concludes that the Scorpion was destroyed while en route to gather intelligence on a Soviet naval group conducting operations in the Atlantic.. While the mission for which the submarine was diverted from her original course back to her home port is a matter of record, its details remain classified...

Author Robert Rodriguez writes that scoring the Wonderwall film "got the [Indian music] genre out of Harrison's system"..In America, some copies of the LP had the Berlin Wall image mistakenly printed on the front, which made for "a less than exciting cover to be sure".. in Madinger and Easter's opinion.. Included on the LP's sleeve insert was a black-and-white photograph of Harrison taken by Astrid Kirchherr, a friend since the Beatles' first residency in Hamburg, Germany, in 1960..features Noel Trevarthen as Policeman, Richard Wattis as Perkins, Irene Handl as Mrs. Peurofoy, and a cameo by Dutch collective The Fool..Release dates 17 May 1968 (Cannes).. can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man..Don't Look for it, Taylor..To suggest that we can learn anything about the simian nature from a study of man is sheer nonsense..We're very popular with actors.. Have I, uh, seen you in anything?..It's a question of simian survival...
