Watch The Beatles Here Comes The Sun Official Video 

It was 50 years ago today, on August 8, 1969, that the world’s most famous band stepped out from London’s EMI Recording Studios to stride, single-file, across the black and white stripes of Abbey Road’s nearby zebra crossing. With photographer Iain Macmillan balanced on a stepladder and one policeman stopping the street’s light traffic, The Beatles crossed back and forth three times, led by John Lennon, followed by Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison. Just six photos were taken, with the fifth selected as the cover shot for The Beatles’ penultimate studio album, Abbey Road, named after the tree-lined street in which the studios are located.

Released September 26, 1969, Abbey Road was not The Beatles’ final album, as Let It Be followed in 1970, but it was the last one John, Paul, George, and Ringo recorded together as a band. The Beatles will celebrate Abbey Road’s anniversary with a suite of beautifully presented packages to be released worldwide on September 27 by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. Now available for preorder, the album’s 17 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo, high res stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos, accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased.

In honor of this auspicious occasion The Beatles have released a brand new video celebrating the iconic song, Here Comes The Sun.

Watch Eric Clapton’s Claymation Video For White Christmas

Eric Clapton has shared a video for his version of “White Christmas.” The song comes off his recently-released holiday album, Happy Xmas.

Slowhand is celebrating with a new claymation-style video for his fiery blues take on the beloved song.

The video tells the story of a young blues fan (who looks a lot like Clapton) going to see a blues performer and dreaming of getting a guitar for Christmas. The story is not far from the truth for Clapton, even at age 73: 

“Almost every Christmas, my wife Melia gives me a guitar,” he recently said on Sirius XM. “Sometimes I’ve just hinted at it — if you want to know what I want for Christmas…”

Eric Clapton’s “Happy Xmas” is available everywhere!  Buy it HERE.

SiriusXM Video To Debut This Summer

Satellite radio giant SiriusXM, home of Howard Stern, will launch SiriusXM Video this summer.

Video from The Howard Stern Show, which is heard on SiriusXM live, is expected to dominate the satellite radio firm’s first venture into video programming, in addition to special programming and content from Stern’s video library.

“Howard customers want one thing: more Howard, and we’re going to give them more Howard,” Meyer explained. “We are going to focus on getting it promoted right, getting it out there right.” He added that adding to the customer experience and value proposition are key, and they will allow the company to roll out more video offers over time.

The Stern video service was previously delayed to 2017 and then this year. Plans for it were first announced in late 2015 when Sirius and Stern signed a new five-year deal. 

Meyer said that after the Stern launch, the firm would offer “additional shortform content from around the SiriusXM bundle” later in 2018, with the firm likely to have more to say about these additional plans on the next earnings call.

An Abandoned Milwaukee Shopping Mall Is Turned Into A Magical Winter Wonderland For Local Kids

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. Some even say they’re magical. A group of Boys & Girls Clubs members would wholeheartedly agree after the once-in-a-lifetime experience they just had courtesy of Samsung and YouTube sensation Casey Neistat. Samsung and Neistat teamed up to find an abandoned mall they could transform into a winter wonderland to give back in their own way. After scouting several locations, they landed on Northridge Mall in Milwaukee, and they reached out to Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee with an invitation to participate. A select group of members from the Clubs’ video production and STEM programs were told they would have an opportunity to be part of a video shoot with Neistat, but most of the project’s details were kept quiet. Little did these youth know, they were in for an experience they would never forget.

The night before the planned video shoot, Neistat visited the Fitzsimonds Boys & Girls Club under the guise of providing an overview of the project. Their enthusiasm bubbled over as carts of gifts were wheeled in, and the youth learned they would each get to keep a Samsung Chromebook Pro, and the Club would be gifted a TV and 30 Samsung Note8s for use in programming. It seemed the excitement of this project had already peaked, but less than 24 hours later as school let out, two busloads of Club members were transported to Northridge Mall, which permanently closed in 2003. Neistat met them at the mall entrance and told them to have their Samsung Note8s ready for filming. In the middle of the mall was a winter wonderland right out of a child’s dream – fluffy snow, a giant, edible gingerbread house, an ice rink, train rides, sledding down escalators, a Santa bearing gifts, and of course, hot chocolate.

No doubt was this experience fun, but it goes much deeper than that. It was clear in that moment, in that space, their kids were special, and they felt it. Why else would people go to so much work to create this dreamlike experience? In the middle of an abandoned mall, these children could forget their problems, their worries, and be lost in joy.

While Neistat and Samsung hosted this experience, it was made possible by the contributions of hundreds of people who spent weeks creating this wonderland in a space with no heat, running water or electricity. It was a labor of love. And there were many more acts of kindness that took place when the Note8s were turned off. Some of the children participating did not own warm weather gear suitable for this experience. The production crew went out and purchased coats, hats and gloves for every participating child who needed them. And following the event, more donations of warm weather gear poured in from the crew, which have since been given to Club members in need.

You can make a donation to the Boys & Girls Club HERE.
