Man, I used to love flipping through my brother’s Beatles LPs and staring at the cover art. Glad Apple let them shine in their own commercial. Also, they’ve made an animated iBook of Yellow Submarine up for free download on iTunes.
Here’s some booty-shakin’ tunes to soundtrack your holiday weekend. Add ‘em to your shopping list while you’re at it. Enjoy thoroughly.

On this day, May 19 of 1967, the Beatles had a promo listening party for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. So? So what better day to showcase a Pepper’s -related item. On June 1, the actual album’s anniversary? Shut it.
DK Presents … The Hip-Hop Sgt. Pepper’s
Music blogger and friend of the Umlaut, DK Presents … , crafted this incredible work of art a couple years back. It was featured in numerous music mags and blogs across the globe. But it deserves another round of attention.
Is that a mini Hennessey bottle? And is that real weed?
