I don't consider myself a Beatles fan, but I bought a DVD of a concert that was held in London for George Harrison. It contains a wicked set of Indian music that is played with sitars & bongo-type drums. The music is composed by Ravi Shankar; and played/conducted by his beautiful daughter. The second half of the DVD has old Beatles songs that are played by George Harrison's friends (Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, Jeff Lynne, etc). I recognize some of the songs (such as Whilte My Guitar Gently Weeps, Taxman, Isn't It a Pity, etc), but my favorite part is the Indian orchestral pieces. I've been watching the show over & over, or just letting it play as background music while I work. Check it out or stop by my place and give it a listen.
Corporate Jetsetting

One of my career goals was accomplished over a week ago. I got to take the corporate jet out to New Hampshire. This introduced a new level of luxury that I'm not accustomed to. From now on when I'm sitting in economy class on a 14 hour flight, I will longingly daydream of lounging in a private jet. We had a few six packs of New Glarus Fat Squirrel and a Dave Matthews dvd from his Central Park concert. We popped open the beer, cranked Dave (so loud that I could no longer here any wind noise in the cabin), and jammed for the entire ride. On the way back home, I called Jason from my mobile phone. Why? Because I could! My next goal is to now get the jet for as many go-lives as possible.

I'm trying to get a signal on my mobile...
