yeah, i know....
it's cool, though. there's always 'the wall' to watch and all thier albums to listen to. plus there have been roger waters shows and laser light shows. the laser shows were a big thing around here when i was like 18.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Edinburgh (my home town) had a huge Live8 rally/march yesterday.

My daughter went to the Live8 concert in London. I'm amazed how little impact the Live8 concerts seem to have made on the general public in the USA. It was the biggest event in the UK yesterday! The Japanese one was also successful.

The Live8 concerts were masterminded by the same British people as LiveAid, 20 years ago... Although Bob Geldof is the front man - he's not the only person involved - but as an Irishman, he brings great passion to those causes he champions.

The G8 happens in Gleneagles in a few days' time. I can only hope that it passes peacefully. Many of the shops in central Edinburgh were boarded up yesterday - but there was very little trouble.
