The Real Life Inspiration Behind Forrest Gump

"Forrest Gump" famously inserted Tom Hanks into old archival footage, interweaving moments from real U.S. history with the fictional story of his character: A simple yet sincere man, sharing homespun wisdom on a park bench to different strangers while recounting the story of his ever-so-charmed life.Director Robert Zemeckis and ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) employed digital compositing and other groundbreaking visual effects to give Forrest's tale a true-to-life veneer. Thanks to the wonders of...

Paul McCartney Missed the Message

Paul and Linda got soooo close… AND MISSED IT.   Linda had 4 kids; Paul had 5 kids.  That’s a fertility rate higher than Zambia, Sudan, Afghanistan, or Egypt.   No amount of vegetarianism will slow resource consumption like a vasectomy and a condom.

"I think he had an idea in his head of what he wanted it to sound like, but he couldn't describe it. He couldn't express it. And he was waiting for somebody to bring it out of the air."

Said Shiela Bromberg, whose obituary I blogged 3 days ago.  The quote appears in the center of the interview embedded below, which a reader called to my attention. Bromberg was the harpist on The Beatles' "She's Leaving Home." The "he" is Paul McCartney:  ADDED: If you love Ringo, be sure to watch the video through to the end.

"The pay was 9 pounds — about $17. With two young children to feed, she showed up at 8:30 p.m. to tune her harp and was handed a piece of sheet music."

Only later did she learn that the notes she played were to be the intro on 'She’s Leaving Home' by the Beatles.... Mrs. Bromberg’s harp intro and rhythm, backed by a full string section, set the poignant tone of the track before Paul McCartney (who recorded separately) began the lyric 'Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock as the day begins.'...  She played harp on two early James Bond films starring Sean Connery — 'Dr. No' (1962) and 'Goldfinger' (1964)... She also performed the solo intro to the 1976...

I'm a vegan who spent a week cooking with fake meat and fish. Here's what I made with 7 plant-based alternatives and how I rated them.

I went vegan more than two years ago, when my burger choices were limited to falafel or bean-based. Tasmin Lockwood/Business Insider Fake meat derived from plant-based proteins is going mainstream. I've been a vegan for 2.5 years and tried out 7 fake meat and fish products to see how they taste. Fake burgers, fake steak, and fake fish came out on top, while fake turkey was a turkey.

Paul McCarney vs. Brian Wilson: A Rivalry That Inspired Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper, and Other Classic Albums

One could argue that the album as we know it didn’t exist before the mid-1960s. As a medium of recorded music, the “long-playing” 33 1⁄3 rpm record was introduced in 1948, and the market proved quick to take it up. A great many musicians recorded LPs over the following decade and a half, but these were produced and consumed primarily as bundles of individual songs. The heyday of radio, which lasted into the 1950s, imbued the single — especially the hit single — with enormous cultural pow...

Jack Benny died when I was 14. He was an early radio and TV star, a comedian primarily remembered for just one line. The other day, a peer said, “well, if you’re giving me a Jack Benny choice…” It occurred to me that few people younger than us were ever going to use that reference. It ends with this generation. YouTube and the net have extended the half-life, dramatically. Instead of TV shows or memes disappearing forever, they simply move to the back row of search. But they’re still there. Will...

If you could only listen to the popular music of a single year in history, what would you pick? Actually, never mind. The correct answer is 1971 and no other will be accepted, because 50 years later, the music of 1971 remains as vital, as influential, as unsurpassed as ever it was. Sure, the top single of the year was Three Dog Night’s “Joy To The World,” and depending on how you feel about talking bullfrogs that may or may not be your thing.
