Not Feeling Particularly Political Today. But I Had To Learn How To Use Windows Movie Maker

How'd I do? Now if I could just get Obama to sell my furniture, I'd be in the clover.

Ah, the great Vernon Reid. You know, he said one of his favorite guitar solos was Amos Garrett's on Maria Muldaur's "Midnight at the Oasis"?

I LOLd at the alphabet soup. MLKRFK EIEIO.

m arthur-The wonderful thing about the internet is that when you indulge in some obscure interest, like Vernon Reid, there's always people that will indulge along with you.

Ruth Anne- I learned it's hard as hell to sync music and video on off the shelf software. That;s about it.

I'm old. I remember MLKRFK. It's a little off-putting to see them planted out in the field like a sort of political scarecrow now. It seems strange to claim the essence of other people.

As a Republican, it's just as off-putting when the GOP does it with Reagan.

I'm not a big Van Halen-esque, guitar-shredding fan, but I love that song. (Did you know it's on Guitar Hero III? My kids are teaching me to push buttons in the correct order so I can pretend to play guitar.) I've thought for a while it's the prefect soundtrack for Obama! The Musical! It really sums him up nicely. I hear one woman touched the hem of his coat and was cured of political apathy.

Hi Pastor Jeff- My son has guitar hero, but not the latest version, so I didn't know the song had been resurrected already.

It's funny to see my son playing a game that substitutes data entry for playing an instrument. I still play music occasionally with friends and ex-bandmembers, and one of my younger guitar player friends can play every song on any guitar hero game, on a real guitar, and at double speed if so desired.
