A Beatle in your mailbox

(n.b. – I am hoping that maybe one of my fantastic British readers will take the time in January to send me a postcard with one of these bad boys affixed to the right corner, and subsequently make my day?

You guys get the best stamps. I bought some which artfully illustrated vegetables yesterday.)

From the news reels:

September 13, 2006
LONDON – The Royal Mail is saluting the Beatles in January by releasing six commemorative stamps illustrated with memorable album covers.

The set includes ran image of “With the Beatles,” released in 1963, which was the group’s second album. In the United States, it was the first Beatles album to be released and was titled “Meet the Beatles!”

Others in the series include “Help!” (1965), “Revolver” (1966), “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (1967), “Abbey Road” (1969) and “Let It Be” (1970).

(Waaaiiiit for it . . . )

Please Mister Postman (alternate take)” – The Beatles

  • Hey those U.S. vegetable stamps are pretty cool in a weird way. But I would rather have the Beatles ones.

  • I’m in London. I’ll send you the stamps, of course! I owe you after all the great music you’ve posted. The minute they’re out, they’re on their way. I promise.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
