Spent the last of my allowance for a Beatle tshirt at Old Navy, and a Beatle watch on ebay.

My parents gifted me with an Abbey Road T-Shirt (which I shall wear to the first day of school). 

With my birthday/end of school money, I made a reallyreallyreally big order...

-Electric Arguments by the Fireman

-Anthologies 2 & 3 (been waiting forever to get them!)

-Live At The BBC

-Let it be...Naked (not sure about this one)

-All Things Must Pass 

-Brainwashed

-Band on the Run

 

And on iTunes I found the money to purchase LOVE, which I am thoroughly enjoying.

Most recent purchase was… um… The White Album and two of Paul's solo albums, Press To Play (haven't listened yet) and Back To The Egg (good, but slightly underwhelmed. Maybe it'll grow on me).

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

Back To the Egg is fine Wings, slightly different direction at times i found but a strong album. You should be pleasantly pleased.

Most recent purchase McCartney 2 remastered, the uber delux version from the Macca website. Some really good songs on there and tons of bonus tracks to make it worthwhile. Yoko, pay attention and learn from this.

Most recent Beatle gift was the Trival Pursuit game. Some really difficult questions that border on impossible.

My next Beatle purchase will be white paint.

 

I'm seriously planning on painting this on one of my bedroom walls.

 

 

Because of my lack of drawing abilities, I might end up with this one a-hard-days-night-john-6

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I can help you with the White Album cover. Of course, you will have to do the stenciling - I can't draw either.

Back on topic...

Another T-shirt and a couple of books that I already mentioned in another thread. Unless McCartney remasters count, then include McCartney.

Oh I know! My friend gave that to me for my last birthday and it was hard trying to play that with non-huge-Beatles-fans.

I haven't been able to play it since a-hard-days-night-paul-1 it makes me sad.

Mith: If I could help you, I would. And then I would copy you because that album art is completely epic. I don't know how my roommate would feel about that though... plus there is definitely not enough room for that in this dorm room. Barely enough for my poster that came out of the "A Hard Day's Night" DVD.

 

My recent Beatles purchase... oh that Rolling Stone Album-By-Album guide of The Beatles, and I also just got a yellow submarine book bag of sorts.

I FINALLY bought Band On The Run after it had been in the Save For Later part of my Amazon for months. I've heard it in it's entirety before, but it's still pretty exciting. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I really want to do it but the thing is that the cover has a lot of details to paint it. I might buy some posters and cover my bedroom walls with them.

 

OMG I just discovered tons of Beatles posters for sale in my country!! I'm going to get some!!!

Revolver wallpaper would look incredible... I saw a show once where designers got to create their own custom wallpaper. It might be expensive though a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Now that's a good idea.

 

I saw a graphic design company that prints large posters, and because of the bad economic situation in here, the printing prices are cheap. I might ask them if I can print a large Revolver poster. (My idea is to cover all the wall)

The whole wall Revolver idea sounds awesome!

Idk whether I've mentioned it before, but I've got loads of blank and white posters (Beatles, John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn, New York and London skylines etc) mixed with things like black and white photos and newspaper articles, and I'm planning on decorating one wall with just these, but so close together that it looks like wallpaper. And then the other three walls will be white. I've planned out all the sizes etc, I promise it will look better than it sounds! I'll be sure to add photos when it's done.

Please do add photos! My roommate and I just ordered a bunch of posters too, in order to make a collage of sorts, of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, etc. And she has a fixation for Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol so we're getting those too. Of course, I'm supplying the Beatles posters.

 

Another decorating idea: I just printed off pictures of all my heroes/idols and bordered one wall-edge from top to bottom one one side, and all the pictures of friends/family/pets etc. on the other side. It looks pretty cool, if I say so myself.

whoops. stay-on-topic, Jet.

You could use all those pics to form your own album cover on one wall- Sgt. JET!

My room has a black and white theme, as well as a London/Paris/New York theme, so I might just have to steal your idea...
