Tuesday Beatles potpourri

- The Social Network is a fabulously entertaining film, and it closes on a flawless note with "Baby, You're a Rich Man."

- A Los Angeles-area woman has made public her previously-unseen cache of rare rock 'n' roll artifacts, including pictures of The Beatles and hand-written lyrics belonging to John, that she amassed while active on the 1970s music scene.

- Production of the Yellow Submarine 3-D remake will be going ahead in April of next year.

- The memory of Brian Epstein has been honored with a special plaque in London.

- Experience the (rarely experienced) Pete Best Liverpool tour.

- Crosby, Stills & Nash are putting a cover of "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" on an album of theirs likely to be released next year.

- A new Smashing Pumpkins song called "Spangled" has an unmistakable Beatles feel to it. It's rather precious, rather Paul. (H/T: The Pitch)

- Lastly, watch an interview with the Quarrymen.
