Some of the tunes we played that I haven't played for maybe 35 years: "Music to Watch Girls By," "Love Will Keep Us Together," "Baby Elephant Walk."

I may not finish them, as Hasbro (owner of Scrabble) is pushing hard to have this application removed. I have a feeling that it will stay after some money has changed hands.

Friday is Filmspotting day! If you like movies and podcasts, you have to check out this podcast of two guys from Chicago neither of which is Roger Ebert. They know their subject, they have great chemistry, they go the film festivals, and they get celebrity guests. They also have entertaining recurring segments like Top Five lists and Massacre Theatre (in which they perform a famous movie scene and listeners have to guess what movie it's from). I'm downloading it as I write this.

City made of shiny disposable plastic objects from $0.99 stores - Boing Boing: "Dan sez, 'Since you liked Chu Enoki's garbage city, you might like Chris Harvey's Mandala of Perfect Happiness, a sculpture made entirely from cheap plastic objects, many of them from 99 cent stores. Here are some pictures of it in my Flickr.' Link (Thanks, Dan!)"

The Sacramento City College World Music Ensemble played at the Peace Corps Midwinter Dinner. We had an incredible turnout. So many people came that we ran out of chairs and people had to sit on the floor.
As always, one of the highlights was when we passed the wireless microphone around and had everyone introduce themselves. A couple of the older returned volunteers (RPCVs) claimed that they had met Sargent Shriver. Someone else said, "I never met Shriver, but I knew a guy who slept with Lillian Carter."

Jennifer hadn't gone before, and I was afraid she wouldn't know anyone, but as it happened there were a couple of her former colleagues that she hadn't seen in years. Plus the crowd seemed to like the same music that Jennifer likes. (Rock and protest songs from the 60s)
