Can we have a burnt condom scorch mark on the wall of the Indra Club, wouldn't be the same without it?

Can we add the Get Back very rough idea of Paul's in the "Beatles oops - can't believe we did that" wing along with a plaque to remember Paul and Yoko's ridiculous attempt to buy back Northern Songs in the 80's?

What is a "metadata scheme"?

^ Heh - metadata - a fancy way to say this goes with that and here's how we find the stuff we are looking for.

OR - a way for librarians to justify fifty years of training :)

No, we can't, because the burnt condom scorch mark was at the Bambi Kino, the cinema where they stayed in the back of. Exactly why that cropped up on my second list.

Good call. My memory sucks when it comes to these things which is why books exist - or mja (maybe we could have him as the help! for anyone who has any questions. Go for the personal touch.)

I just put a call in to cancel that green card a-hard-days-night-paul-11

It is a standardized way of describing items so they are discoverable in catalogs and such.

^ Man - I was SO close to that card.

What is the janitor going to do with the kettle and tea they bought in anticipation?

Umm - back on topic, I would like to see lots of interactive exhibits - stuff like a full 4 instrument, 3 mike Rock Band stand where you could jam with other visitors to the museum on Beatles replica instruments (off in an area of its own so we don't scare the other visitors).  I noticed in the New York concert DVD that Paul was even using Rock Band in-game videos on the screens at the back of the stage on some songs.

Sell them on ebay. You can buy them a-hard-days-night-paul-11 with expedited shipping.

Yes, definitely. Interactivity is a must in today's museum. I remember back in the 80s making a recording with some friends somewhere...memory fails. Perhaps we could have a little recording studio. Nothing fancy. But the visitors would have something to take home with them.

How long will our introductory film be? Who will we get to make it? Should it have recreations or just documentary with pictures and film clips?

On the topic of food how about some jam butties, replaced every day to keep them fresh? Oh and some jelly babies. In fact we could have a Beatles café with relevant Beatles-related food so things like cornflakes, toast and salmon (wasn't that what Ringo was surprised to find didn't always come from a tin?). There was a Beatle Questionnaire where they answered what their favourite foods were.

 

There has to be a Beatles shop and considering Apple has licensed a whole load of tat we have a whole load of rubbish to flog to visitors at high prices. We could follow the Apple shop example where at the beginning we sell some decent quality stuff but over time it becomes crap before giving it away after taking the better stuff for ourselves, we could do it over and over as some kind of random activity.

Do you think we could get Ringo and Paul to do the narration for our headphone audio guide?

We could call the snack bar George's section somehow. Surely someone can offer a snazzy name for it.

We need some of Paul's used toothbrushes and that bathtub that made him late to the appointment.

I like it. I haven't had lunch or dinner. I'm famished. Have we got this thing operational yet?

Oh, I just remembered that wetsroosa lives near an apple festival site. Perhaps he can suggest some recipes.

For the food..we'll serve Glass Onion rings, Ringo's Rishikesh baked beans, Wild Honey Pie, one spinal cracker, Coca Cola, and the like. We'll also need famous Beatles quotes to adorn the walls (they do that in the Rock Hall of Fame...famous rock quotes) Might I suggest these 3 to start: "I've got blisters on me fingers" and "Thanks very much. I hope we pass the audition" and "Just rattle your jewelry."

The baked beans have to be Heinz after Ringo's plug in the Anthology.

So that's the one we are using to clone him?

I hope he turns out nicer than the dinos in Jurassic Park!!

Jelly babies can be used in the Interactive Exhibit Wing. While 4 mechanical Beatles perform on stage, one can score points by pelting the Beatles with jelly babies. The harder the target, the higher the points.

Toss one in a Beatle's mouth? 500 points

Hit a guitar sting to cause a flubbed chord? 100 points

One of Ringo's cymbals? 50 points

Ringo's nose? 1 point

Question is which type of Jelly Bean - hard or soft?

Considering how much bad press they get we could have one of those wack-a-mole machines were instead of moles Yoko and Heather heads pop up.

Brilliant! The Interactive Exhibit Wing is taking shape nicely. How about the Helter Skelter for an addition?
