“Because of my work on his two books, I became more associated with John than the other Beatles. Sometimes after (taking photos) we’d slip out to the clubs. On (one) occasion we came back home after an all-night drinking session and I had a terrible hangover.  I couldn’t even make it up the stairs (at Emperor’s Gate, where Freeman and John both lived)  and ended up slumped outside on the curb. John sat down beside me, put his arm around my shoulder, and waited for me to recover.
John’s moods swung dramatically from a laugh one minute to gloom and suspicion the next. He was a mixed bag of inner conflicts—a legacy from his past and the pressures of the present. John was the only married Beatle and he was not a naturally domestic creature. He was young, he liked the experience of being on the road with the others. He wanted excitement, but he also wanted to be understood.”
Robert Freeman, The Beatles, 1990.

Two original contact sheets containing 74 images taken by Robert Freeman
The photos show the Beatles recording tracks for A Hard Day’s Night at EMI Studios in June 1964; a number of the images also show manager Brian Epstein and producer George Martin. Freeman took the photos after he was commissioned by Ernest Hecht of ‘Souvenir Press’ to photograph Brian Epstein and the Beatles for Epstein’s autobiography A Cellarful of Noise.

What's so forbidden about those last 15 or so episodes of Boondocks?
(its really the last 10) most of them are AWFUL that's why. it's a fatass change ok. it doesn't feel like the same show. it was lazy ass hell. it wasn't funny. you don't wanna root for anyone cause everyone fucking sucks.
it felt like a slap in the face. we waited years for season four and when we got it it felt like they just threw something together to get it out. i remember me and my classmates were so excited for season 4 to premiere and when it came out we was mad as hell cause of how bad it was.
i wanna talk about the boondocks. send asks about it.

The Beatles Recording: 'Drive My Car' (Backing Track + Overdubs) / Location: EMI Studios, Abbey Road - Studio Two. Photographed by Robert Freeman, circa October 13, 1965, © Apple Corps Ltd. (http://www.thebeatles.com/)
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Norman Smith
“The Beatles recorded ‘Drive My Car’, the opening song for Rubber Soul, on this day at EMI Studios in London. It was the second recording session for the album.
The session began at 7pm, and finished at 12.15am the following morning. This was The Beatles’ first recording session to finish after midnight, although such an occurrence would soon become commonplace.
Drive My Car was recorded in four attempts, the last of which was the only complete take. The rhythm track featured John Lennon on tambourine, Paul McCartney on bass guitar, George Harrison on Fender Stratocaster, and Ringo Starr on drums.
A number of overdubs were subsequently added. The first was of lead vocals by Lennon and McCartney and backing vocals by Harrison. The third track contained Lennon’s double tracked vocals for the “And maybe I’ll love you” and “beep beep, beep beep, yeah” lines.
Track four contained the finishing touches: McCartney’s lead guitar during the intro, solo and coda, cowbell by Starr, and Lennon’s piano part during the choruses.” (From the BeatlesBible.com).

John
"John was essentially a whimsical character with strong intuitive perceptions. Although his curiosity spanned many subjects, he was not an intellectual. He had neither the patience nor the application for academic pursuits. In fact he rebelled against academic institutions even though he was stimulated by the creative possibilities in art school. His writings and drawings developed during his spell there, but he saw these as a hobby and was surprised at the attention they received when published.
He found his true expression in music because music was feelings and emotions--subjects John understood best. When writing songs or performing them, he was at one with the world and himself. John was a powerful performer with a vulnerable intensity. In his songs there was often a yearning for love and tenderness which he expressed through the raw, emotional quality of his voice. John drew on the conflicts in his life for his music, and in singing his songs he attempted to exorcise the confused feelings raised by his relationships with women. While seeking solace in these relationships, he often found himself the victim of them.
John was at his happiest belting out wild, rocking numbers, or getting amiably high with friends when his wit and humour cut loose. He had a great capacity for love and friendship but would mask his sensitivity with a tough bravado. I remember John best for the warm and humourous side of his personality, a humour well illustrated in the response he once gave a journalist seeking his advice for teenagers: “don’t get pimples."
~Robert Freeman, The Beatles

Quote
Brian and I had a good relationship. We also socialized fairly regularly and his taste for the high life took us to some of the best restaurants in London, like Cunninghams and the White Tower. After one extended lunch in Mayfair we were passing a car showroom. A gleaming Bentley convertible caught his eye. It was all silver. In he went and bought it!
Robert Freeman (The Beatles: A Private View, 1990)
