What’s going on Wednesday (9/9/09)?
Les Savy Fav @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple in March (more by Natasha Ryan)
For some, 9/9/09, is a special date because it is the last time we will see single-digit repeating numbers in a date until January 1, 2101. According to Livescience.com, 9/9/09 is significant to numerologists because the number 9 is, to coin a term, “yingyangy.” In other words, it is
associated with noble qualities such as forgiveness, compassion and success and ignoble qualities such as arrogance and self-righteousness. Some are excited about 09/09/09 because Tim Burton‘s movie “9” (which reportedly has nine heroes) opens today.
But if you are a die hard Beatles fan, none of the aforementioned reasons for being jazzed about 9/9/09 (or, if you prefer, 09/09/09 or September 9, 2009 or 9/9/9) is more significant and exciting than the fact that 09/09/09 marks the day that the entire digitally remastered Beatles catalog is being released by Apple, and that “The Beatles: Rock Band” video game is being launched.
