Boomers Will Get It...

... the rest of all y'all? Maybe. Via Viral Vids, yet again: "Blame Ringo - Garble Arch (A Day in the Life of Abbey Road)"

I'm reminded of the ol' joke... "If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot 'em?" I'm certain I'm not alone in this regard.


  1. It would have been better if Abbey Road was playing in the background.

  2. You're must be a boomer thing. I was in born in '66, and despite watching it twice, the meaning escaped me until I clicked on the Abbey Road link. I did enjoy the music, and found the video to be oddly entertaining. Reminded of the opening credits of the "Monkee's" more than anything.

  3. Daphne: Agreed... "Here Comes the Sun" would have been pretty cool, just for one.

    BR: I'm wondering if either of the sons will weigh in here... you and SN1 share your birth year, and SN2 is only two years behind. Both were exposed to many, MANY doses of Abbey Road. I tried to raise 'em right, ya know.

    Doc: So you say! ;-)

  4. Oh that was really fun to watch.

    Thanks for posting it, Buck!

    I guess if I were there, I might be tempted to do the same thing. lol

  5. Jesse has a photo of her and Lindz crossing a road - appropriately labled "Abby Road."

  6. While in Scotland last year, it took me a while to figure out how to cross the street without getting ran over.

  7. Sharon sez: I guess if I were there, I might be tempted to do the same thing. lol

    In the "stranger than fiction" department... I spent three years in London and have been back twice since living there and never thought about seeking out Abbey Road. Not because I'm not a Beatles fan... I AM. I've bought three copies of Abbey Road over the years,

    Lou: All the street corners in central London have "look right" stenciled on the street in the crosswalk. Tourists get run over a LOT...


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
