Feck it, @Joe!

Sandwich board, "Join us at http://www.beatlesbible.com" written on it, turn to camera and wave.

@Joe i'd suggest causing a scene and then when the media turn up with the authorities start screaming the name of this site whilst baring your chest to unviel the address scrawled across. Either that or tattoo the site details to your backside and then moon to the camera for a good 10 seconds or so. The foootage will go global.

These are all absolutely fantastic ideas, but I think I'll merely cross the street, enter the studio, hand over my ticket and take my place at the talk. I'm not sure I really want to be arrested on my birthday (or any other day). Sorry.

Maybe I'll take a marker pen and add the URL to the wall, then take a picture. But only if I remember.

I fear that any attempt to publicise the site's name would attract all sorts of religious crazies - of both the anti- and pro-Beatles stripe!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I was! Sandwich boards are not unusual in London. People get paid to wear them.

I toned down! My first idea was, wearing the sandwich board, to have him dancing across the crossing, with the sandwich board, in Hare Krishna robes and with a shaved head, and - once making it to the right side of the road - cartwheeling back across the crossing (while praying he'd remembered underwear!).

I, instead, went with something much more subtle!

@Joe, looks like it might be raining in London in the morning. If you are wearing a rain hat, you could just lift it slightly for a second in a quiet hello.

OK, OK. I'll quit pestering you now.

Just bumped into Joe at Abbey Road, he's a nice bloke in real life too :P

Doesn't look like his profile picture though, I thought he would have looked like George Harrison's twin :( Disappointing

(Wait, what? That's a photo of GEORGE? And all this time I thought that was Joe :O)

EDIT: How ignorant of me, I forgot to wish you the best of luck!

Subtle and unobtrusive doesnt work, Joe should be making a scene so people come to the forum, the more noticeable the more visitors.

But so folk recognise him he could do a cartwheel or somersault.

Yay! It isn't raining. Looks like a beautiful morning in London.

I see you took the train in. Nice. Wonderful Twitter pictures. Thanks!

EDIT: The crossing cam is archived. Start watching at 10:34:43 for Joe coming around the corner by the bushes. Then he switches cameras and goes by the pole twice to take a picture...continued in next post.

http://www.abbeyroad.com/CrossingArchive

EDIT2: So how this happened. I thought I saw you right there where you are in the last part close to the cam. Then I started kicking myself for not doing a screen capture. Then I saw your Twitter pictures. Then I looked to see if the stream is archived and figured out where you were standing to get the Twitter pics. I used my cell phone to video the video.

EDIT: TheOneBeatleManiac did a better job down thread of capturing the cam video. Thanks!

The stickers all over the pole in your Twitter pic helped jog my thinking and spurred me on to find you in the cam archives video. I could see that the pole had stickers all over it in the cam video.

By the pole on the left hand side of the road, just to the left of the dark van. Joe is partially blocked by the pole, and he has his arms up taking a picture. The picture taken from here looks like one of the pictures you put on Twitter, Joe.

Oh, I see, in the video when you first walk out of view of the cam is when you took the picture of the studio. Then you come back into view and cross the street. Then you turn around and take another picture of the crossing before walking towards the cam where we see you clearly.

Joe, alone on the zebra crossing.

Bloody hell, that is me in the pic with the taxi. I think it is anyway - it's a bit grainy.

Hi everyone! On train back, on phone so can't write a lot but I've had a great day. Met Ken Scott, lovely guy, the talk was v good too.

Will post more after the weekend including proper pictures, but take a look at my Twitter timeline if you haven't already.

Thanks for popping in, Joe. Saw the Twitter pics - thanks so much. Looking forward to seeing more after the weekend.

Also, thanks for not scratching or picking at anything while being stalked upthread. I can still hold my head up high and say, "yeah, I know him".
