Anyone who knows me knows I love The Beatles. I love them so much, in fact, I’ve visited Liverpool, their city of origin. I had a great time and would love to go back again.
In 2009 another visitor was in Liverpool who had probably never heard of The Beatles, but its visit was certainly spectacular. It was an enormous robotic spider, and it looks as if it spent at least a full day creeping along the city streets, much to the awe of the Liverpudlians.
I can only imagine the exhaustion of the puppeteers after a long day astride the spider, but surely watching the faces of the thrilled viewers was a fine reward.
