An extended and previously unreleased version of The BEATLES' "White Album" track "Revolution 1" has surfaced on the Internet. You Tube has it labeled as Take 20, which is what you hear Abbey Road engineer GEOFF EMERICK slate it as, but this is actually what the Beatles recorded on the first day of the sessions for the double-LP on May 30th, 1968, and continued working on the following day as well as on June 4th. According to MARK LEWISOHN's definitive book, "The Beatles Recording Sessions," JOHN LENNON took home a mono mix of Take 20 on a plastic spool after the June 4th session, and that's what this You Tube file must be. It runs nearly 11 minutes and includes a lot of the material John would eventually use on the massive "Revolution 9" placed on Side 4 of the "White Album."
Well, we found a website . . . called GreenSock.com . . . where you can watch videos of household items being destroyed in the microwave.

.) Here's video of a fireball seen in the sky over Texas on Sunday. The U.S. military said it's NOT debris from the satellites that collided in space last week, so it could have been a meteor. The people in the video running away . . . were in a local marathon....although it almost looks like an old monster movie with people running away from the fireball.

THE FASTEST STREET-LEGAL CAR IN THE WORLD IS A SOUPED-UP 1963 CORVETTE THAT GOES 210 MILES PER HOUR!
Last summer, 58-year-old Rod Saboury of Millers, Maryland (--about 50 miles northwest of Baltimore), decided to find out just how fast his souped-up 1963 Corvette could go.
So he brought the car to the Super Chevy Show in Ohio . . . and tested its 2,400 horsepower engine on a real racetrack. So how fast did it do? Listen to this . . .
Rod's Corvette went from ZERO to 60 miles per hour in ONE SECOND.
And it reached its top speed . . . which is more than 210 miles per hour . . . in less than SEVEN SECONDS.
Just so we're clear, those times easily make Rod's Corvette the fastest street-legal car on the planet.
If you're wondering, Rod's Corvette gets about ten miles to the gallon . . . which isn't that bad considering most Hummers only get about 13 or 14 miles per gallon.
