Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who introduced transcendental meditation to the West and gained fame in the 1960s as the spiritual guru to the Beatles, died Tuesday at his home and headquarters in Vlodrop, the Netherlands. He is believed to have been in his 90s. Steven Yellin, a spokesman for the organization, confirmed the Maharishi's death but did not give a cause....The Beatles/Maharishi thing was recently spoofed in the movie Walk Hard. Actual video footage below...
....The visibility and popularity of the organization can largely be attributed to the Beatles. In 1968, the band, with great publicity, began studying with the Maharishi at his Himalayan retreat, or ashram, in Rishikesh, in northern India. They went with their wives, the folk singer Donovan, the singer Mike Love, of the Beach Boys, the actress Mia Farrow and Ms. Farrow's sister Prudence....
...In the last years of his life he rarely met with anyone, even his ministers, face-to-face, preferring to speak with followers almost exclusively by closed-circuit television.

I thought it was pretty good (the movie, not the live show at Knitting Factory that I didn't go to). I loved all the geeky music references and cameos (like Jack White as Elvis). It made up for it not being as funny as other Judd Apatow movies I've seen. Watch the first ten minutes online. Watch a special Dewey Cox Christmas video below....
