First this month on the Beatles Blog Carnival is:
The Beatles in 3D
The Kenwood sunroom in 3D. “Step back in time into Lennon’s Kenwood sunroom.” In this “ongoing work in progress” you can move around the room and zoom in on objects like guitars, books on the coffee table, pictures on the wall, and even look outside. The plan is that eventually some of the objects will contain interactive click-able hot spots and there will be hidden access to other famous Beatles locations. You really have to see it to believe it, it’s amazing!
The Washington Coliseum Drum Riser is a computer generated re-creation of the drum platform that Ringo used on February 11, 1964. Included is a digital photograph of the actual bass drum head used on the Ed Sullivan show and the concert at the Washington Coliseum, and the set list used by John Lennon at the Washington concert.
The actual drum head is owned by Russ Lease, President of Beatlesuits.com, you might have seen him on the CBS Early show. The set list is owned by Beatles author and collector, Mark Naboshek. The print is 18″ x 24″ on high quality 100lb gloss stock, and costs $20 plus shipping.
There’s a lot more to see on The Beatles in 3D, I know I’ll be going back again soon!
DM’s Beatles Site
If you haven’t run across Dmitry’s site, DMBeatles, or just haven’t been there in a while, you should check it out. One of the features of the site, the DM’s Beatles Forum, is a really popular forum with a lot of friendly and knowledgeable members, and some very interesting topics.
In the “Pictures” area of the site, there’s a collection of over a thousand images. Included are screenshots from movies and advertisements, pictures of the Beatles families, photographs from the covers of magazines, and much more.
You should also check out the “Interviews” section. There are currently seventy-four transcripts of interviews from October 1962 to April 1971, including the McCartney interview with David Frost on May 18th 1964, an interview for Playboy in 1965, and of course the August 1966 Chicago interview with Lennon talking about the so-called Jesus statement controversy.
There is also a very thorough Discography section. Including pictures of the album covers, listing of tracks and information about each album, and links to buy the albums, sheet music and tabs.
Stop by DM’s Beatles site, and tell Dmitry that Jim said hi!
A Beatles Revolution
A Beatles Revolution lives up to their slogan, “Everything a Beatles fan could ever want.” They have a complete discography, movie trailers, an extensive photos section, and much more.
Everyone loves a challenge! Do you like to do jigsaw puzzles? In the “Games” section there are some Beatles album covers for you to put together. Or would you rather play some Beatles trivia games? They have links to games that range from easy to hard, so try them all!
You can view a collection of Beatles videos, including the Washington Coliseum concert in ’64 with the Beatles playing “She Loves You,” the official 1965 video of “We Can Work It Out,” the Beatles live in Japan playing “Nowhere Man,” and many more.
If you’ve been looking for some fun Beatles quotes, here is a collection of them, some that are good for a laugh!
Spend some time on A Beatles Revolution, you won’t be disappointed!
Next on the Beatles Blog Carnival is:
The Beatles Story
I recently traveled to Liverpool and was able to spent some time at the Beatles Story museum. What a wonderful experience! They have it set up as a self-guided tour; while wearing a set of headphones you walk through the museum listening to the information about each exhibit, at your own pace.
Here are a few pictures I took while there.
They had an extensive amount of Beatles memorabilia on display, instruments the Beatles played, their stage clothing, rare photographs and recording equipment from Abbey Road Studios.
If you haven’t been to The Beatles Story, you should really visit their website to check out all it has to offer. If you have the chance to go to Liverpool, I think you’ll be amazed with the museum, not to mention the city itself!
