Beatles' album cover saves lives!

Traffic police in India have been saving lives thanks to the  Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover. They've been using it to warn  pedestrians about the dangers of jaywalking, and it appears to be working.

Dozens of billboards bearing the famous Abbey Road album cover went up three months ago, with the slogan: "If they can, why can't  you?"

http://www.3news.co.nz/Beatles.....fault.aspx

Pretty cool idea- reminds me of this

Beatles-Pedestrian-Traffic-Lights.jpg

And this I heard a while back but I don't think anybody posted it (sorry if they did)

 

"Swedish pop stars Abba have surpassed The Beatles to  score Britain's second biggest selling album of all time.

Gold: Greatest Hits by Abba and  the Fab Four's 1967 classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band have  both sold 5.1 million copies in the UK, but the 'Dancing Queen' hitmakers have  pulled ahead in the tight race by shifting another 15,000 units of their 1992  collection."

Oh yeah I heard that news on the radio. And those pedestrian traffic lights are so cool! Why don't we have those over here?

And seriously..Abba? *shakes head in disbelief*

Interesting. I never really understood her art, but I like her view on things, like the noises that sound like child labour and all those things. I find it interesting. Sometimes she's just a little..too much though.

Thanks, Emily. I'm not back to posting regularly yet, but I just read that Ringo's going to be on the Today show tomorrow, so just want to give you guys a heads up.

Oh! And I meant to add that The Colbert Report on Wednesday the 12th will be a full hour dedicated to Paul. Here's a link to his first appearance.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Darn, the link video won't play for me.  I've been looking for it for a long time, too!  Probably because I'm "North of the border".  ahdn_paul_01

Agreed.

Thank you muchly, Egroeg! I was itching to post news bits here during my hiatus, and I think I'll stick with that as my primary contribution to the board (along with the occasional LOL because I can't resist :-> ). The conversation threads are entertaining and informative, but often too addictive for me. So I need to find a balance.

A few things:

* Paul is featured on Bloody Beetroots' 'Out of Sight' - 30 second teaser at the link.

* Geoff Baker is hoping to include Paul as part of a record-breaking ensemble on Buddy Holly's 77th birthday.

* Ringo's publishing a children's book based on Octupus's Garden. (And of course, his ebook of photographs comes out tomorrow.)

* Madame Tussauds is opening a Beatles exhibit in DC. (And Ringo's exhibit in LA starts tomorrow as well.)

Great, thanks for all of that!

Oh and I certainly know which book I'll be asking for Sinterklaas. Let's hope it'll be out as a real book by then.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Thanks, Parlance!  I really appreciate all your news contributions.  I for one, wouldn't be able to keep on top of it, so this is WONDERFUL.  So many books...so little time!  I just ordered FIVE Beatle books I haven't read yet...that will keep me busy for a little while.  Really want to see Ringo's "Photograph"!

News bits:

* A preview of the Ringo exhibit at the Examiner (with pics) and LA Times.

* Not really news per se, but a blog popped up about The Beatles' in-house astrologer.
