Yeah, I posted about this in the news thread (I guess I should start embedding videos to make the news bits more noticeable). But I was just thinking about this lovely film this morning and thinking I should watch it again. :->

Can I just comment that "crosswalk"s are things you get in America.  The stripy thing across Abbey Road is a Zebra Crossing.

That was on Channel 4 a few night backs back, one of two short tv documentaries. It was a nice surprise to randomly come across it.

Very nice indeed, but the best tribute still has to be the LIVECam where you can see that not much time passes on any given day where someone must relive that historic July day long ago  http://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing  ...:-)

This is the best thing I've seen on internet since, well I guess forever! I might have visited London this year were it not for some issues. Earlier then, I would fantasize about visiting Abbey Road (crossing the crossing a-hard-days-night-john-2) and 3 Saville Row. Thank you @meanmistermustard for this amazing virtual opportunity to visit the Abbey Road!apple01apple01apple01apple01

For context, start with post 23 on page two of that thread for the full context.

Hard to believe but some visitors to the road are incredibly disappointed its a road with such things as traffic on it, one person on trip adviser commented that there wasnt much to do (source: Metro).

Would be quite interesting to know what they expected.

That little video really makes me want to go see it.  I didn't know before about all the interesting surroundings.  I'll bet @Ahhh Girl could spend all day there just people watching.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

Basking?

bask (verb): revel in and make the most of (something pleasing).
synonyms: revel in, delight in, luxuriate in, wallow in, take pleasure in, rejoice in, glory in, indulge oneself in

Yes, basking.
