Happy Birthday, Sgt. Pepper!
June 1 marked Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band's 40th birthday, and I totally missed it. Here's the trailer from "Yellow Submarine" to make up for it.
It never ceases to amaze me how I can throw this movie on for a crowd of jaded 12-18 year-olds (usually before studying surrealism) and they almost unanimously love it. People in the hallways will stick their heads into my classroom to see what's going on, and I will hear people singing songs from the movie for weeks afterward.
It's good stuff.
