To avoid starting a new thread whenever I find a link worth republishing, I thought I'd start this rolling thread. Feel free to add to it if you see something interesting and Beatles-related.

To kick off, some great photos from the Guardian by photographer Jane Bown. I've had one of her portraits of John Lennon on my wall since I was a teenager.

No, it's not any of those pics, though it's from the same 1963 London session. The Observer was selling framed prints of J, P, G & R years ago. The one I have is this one:

I wish I had the other three now. They were quite expensive though - I was given mine as a present.

This book is a MUST have! I've been to loads of these places but the book is regarded as the best ever written about the Beatles in Liverpool.

How The Beatles Rocked the Kremlin has probably already shown on CBC News Network tonight. Did anyone watch it?

I recorded it as I went to a play with my mum, and will have to watch it tomorrow because my brothers and dad took over the TV for an important hockey game, ah, the life of a Canadian household. Wink

How was it?

😛 I meant how was the Beatles program!

But hockey-wise, my family was very upset; the US won after losing for the past 5 years against our team, so at school today everyone wa having a bash at the ol' US team. Humble losers, aren't we? xD

Well you have my smug sympathy. 😀

I know what you meant. I can't see CBC programing here, so ...?

Nice framed portraits of The Beatles, and not too expensive either. Some of the pictures I don't think I'd seen before.

Here's a great idea: charting The Beatles - inventive visual representations of various aspect of their career:

Also, here's a great use of The Beatles' logo: Image Enlarger

Indeed!

Here's another link: Wu Tang Clan vs The Beatles. It says it uses Beatles samples but I think a lot of the music has been re-recorded. I quite like it.

I actually like that too. Makes me think of this mash up I heard a while ago. Loo & Placido Black Beatles (download)

More remixed Beatles music -We're Late for Class presents The Act Yor've Known For All These Years. "This is a psychedelic mash-up using only tracks from The Beatles' experimental solo releases."
