Scary Blogger? Jeez Matt, Relax - you've got a cool job now, so just take it easy ;-)

In case you're wondering, the "fifth blogger" is a vague joke reference to an old Saturday Night Live episode where Eddie Murphy claimed to be the fifth beatle (complete with doctored recordings of beatles songs with his own voice overlayed). I couldn't find any excerpts or video online, just this tiny mention (a couple sentences in they mention it).

Don't forget that "fifth Beatle" was a term applied to several individuals, from onetime manager George Martin to the drummer that Richard Starkey replaced, Pete Best. Some other fifth Beatles, just so the kids don't forget.

But Matt, didn't you have a cool job already? Now you just have a cooler one. As a rock star.

Don't forget Murray the K... He proclaimed himself the fifth Beatle unlike most of the others who had the title applied to them.

One other candidate for Fifth Beatle: Billy Preston, who got a "with" credit on "Let It Be".
But, Mathowie, there's already a fifth name on the
Pyra VIP page... but then, anything better than the Eleventh Beatle is still an honor...
