In other totally unrelated news, on Friday I called Paris and listened to the Rolling Stones live in concert. There's this new deal where you can dial in and listen to a live concert for $1.99 for seven minutes. (So far, The Rolling Stones concert has been the only one you could call into.)
It's sort of a weird experience, hanging on the phone for 7 minutes, listening to a live concert half way around the world in a totally different time zone. I've been to a number of Stones concerts, so I tried to picture being there as I listened.....it was sort of surreal. Unfortunately, the sound quality was not good. It was like calling someone who's at the concert and having them hold up their cell phone so you could hear it. Then, because you only have 7 minutes, you don't have a choice or even know what song you're going to hear when you dial in. I got to listen to parts of 2 of my *least* favorite Stones songs! Ah well. It was an interesting *one time* experience. Hopefully they'll get the technology down so that it might be more worthwhile in the future.
Well....now I'm off to the land of hoping for WiFi. I'll try to check in as often as I can. Stay tuned.......comments??? (4 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
