George Harrison was rememberd by hundreds of fans in Grifffith Park. A plaque was unveiled next to a tree planted …

George Harrison Memorial Tree Killed by Beetles

Isn't it ironic?

A memorial tree planted in Los Angeles to honor the late Beatles musician George Harrison needs to be replaced after it was infested with real-life beetles.

Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge made the announcement over the weekend, according to the Los Angeles Times. The tree was planted near the Griffith Observatory in 2004 to honor the musician who passed away in 2001.

Bark beetles are common in Los Angeles and regularly feed on pine trees, the same type of tree planted at the Harrison memorial.

Clearly a fan, LaBonge was reportedly in attendance for the final tour stop of another former Beatle; Ringo Starr was performing with his band at the nearby Greek Theatre on Saturday.

Harrison spent his final days in Los Angeles and was honored with the plaque including a written tribute, which reads:

"In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener."

LaBonge says Griffith Park officials plan to replant a pine tree similar to the now 10-foot-tall tree that is being removed, though no official date for the new replanting has been set.

Animal photographer David Sleter and Wikimedia have a fight about the copyright of a series of photos of an ape. The funny thing is that the ape stole his camera and did a number of selfportaits after he has found the button to push. After a while he was bored and the photographer got his camera back. Wikimedia uses the photos and argues that the photographer has no copyright on them cause he didn't shot them.

The community Wijchen, near Nijmegen in The Netherlands, was to paint the refuge islands in the village. But they had a bit of an accident and entered the wrong colour code in the order: now they're all pink.
Link has video. Inhabitants rather like it, but the authorities have already confirmed they're going to be repainted soon.

Breaking news: Wijchen has decided to keep the pink islands! What's more, a local artist will make further embellishments.

Apple creates a special website where people can get U2 removed from their new i-Phones.

Yesterday, eight wild boars managed to get themselves trapped in a river in Limburg, Netherlands. The fire brigade managed to rescue three of them...
And they were shot by a hunter almost immediately. Because there are now too many boars in NL (no natural enemies) they are allowed to be shot when they are outside certain designated spots.
