'Will you still feed me..?'

We were down in Pennsylvania with family for the Fourth of July holiday weekend, like we were last year. One of the cool things about going down there - simple pleasures, I know - is going to WaWa for sandwiches.

So it was a bit of a surprise when we were in one of their stores to see the posters for their current "Hoagiefest" promotion, that looked just a little too much like it was a "Yellow Submarine" outtake.

I don't pretend to know what the image rights situation is these days for the Beatles or John Lennon's estate, but apparently this isn't a new thing and WaWa have been using a Fab Four theme for their annual promotion for a while now.

Anyway, in other Beatles-related news, it's Ringo's 70th birthday coming up this week and he's playing on Tuesday night at Radio City Music Hall.

If you can't make that gig, you can still catch The Meetles down in the subway.


And if you're looking for a good July 4th tune, you can hardly beat this one...
