*WARNING* CONTAINS PAUL MCCARTNEY!

This is going to be one helluva spiel, so don't say you weren't warned!
It isn't any secret to the world that I'm a massive Paul McCartney fan. If you stand still long enough, I'm very likely going to talk about all four (yes, FOUR) times our paths have crossed, and how I just about had a heart attack during a strategic point during each of those. I may also show you what I call my Paulie scar, which I got while watching the Main Man sing Let It Be with my very own peepers (I got burned with a lighter... I wear the scar proudly, and I wouldn't want to go anywhere without it!).
Going on a different thread (which I will clear up when the time is right), it also isn't a secret that I'm a huge fan of British cult comedies, singing the praises of the actor's timing, the writer's impeccable skill, and how everything is usually only done in a couple of takes (which, being an American AND a perfectionist, I marvel at). I often mention Matt Berry, the handsome hunk of weirdo best known for such greatness as The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, and, least we forget, Snuff Box. Not only does Mr. Berry act, he's also a musician, and not a bad one at that. His third album, Witchazel, is due out sometime in the future, I don't know when, but by chance this evening, I stumbled upon the authorized free download of this hidden gem.
Now, this is where Paul and Mr. Berry come together, by doing just that... Paul is featured on one the tracks, titled "Rain Came Down".
At first, I was dubious of the whole situation. After doing a check, and listening with my own listening devices, i.e. ears, I can verify it is indeed THAT Paul McCartney.
Here is the download link, feel free to take advantage of the music, especially since Paul is involved!

The guy is old enough to be my granddad, but that doesn't mean I'm blind!
Watch, enjoy, try not to wet yourself.

Is It A Subscription Box, Or Something More Sinister? (It's A Subscription Box. Maybe.)
