Our Sweet George: Martin Scorsese Explores the Life and Times of the Quiet Beatle

When the Beatles first burst onto the pop culture landscape in the early '60s, the group's fans and the press had little trouble slotting three out of the four mop-topped rockers -- John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr -- into clearly defined identities. Specifically, they were the "Smart One," the "Cute One" and the "Funny One," respectively. But lead guitarist George Harrison's personality proved more difficult to sum up in a pithy two-word phrase. As a result, he was saddled with the vague moniker of the "Quiet One," which seemed to imply, quite unfairly, that he was somehow less interesting and vibrant than his bandmates. In the group's early years, it's true that Harrison took a backseat to the dynamic duo of Lennon and McCartney. But by the time the group disbanded in 1970, he had emerged as a strong artist and individual in his own right; in fact, his first post-Beatles record All Things Must Pass, outsold his former bandmates' initial solo albums, McCartney and John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.

Sexy Vampire Alert: Alan Ball Dishes On True Blood

Sexy Vampire Alert: Alan Ball Dishes On <i>True Blood</i> I want you guys to be the first to know that vampires are totally, totally the new black. For proof, look no further than the latest in a string of Dracula-referencing additions to the pop culture stew (which already includes the band Vampire Weekend, the Facebook vampire function and a little movie called Twilight). I'm talking of course about the new Alan Ball-helmed HBO series True Blood, based on the cult book series Southern Vampire by Charlaine Harris, which tells the tale of a clairvoyant waitress (played by the button-cute Anna Paquin) who befriends a Victorian-era vampire named Bill (sexy-hot Brit Stephen Moyer) in a backwoods Louisiana town. The show's back story -- since the creation of synthetic blood, vampires have 'come out' in society and are in the process of assimilating, facing prejudice and adulation (via vampire groupies dubbed 'fang bangers') in equal measure -- has been months in the making thanks to a slew of viral microsites devoted to the propagation of the True Blood mythology.
