I am entirely mystified by all the stuff about NBC and shows on the net. Who is this Conan guy anyway? I watched a clip that someone posted and there was this guy reading from a prompter jokes that he had not seen before (he kept laughing, though god knows they weren't funny) in front of a crowd of what I take to be werewolves from all the howling that was going on. Leno is the one with the chin isn't he? Craig Ferguson used to be a rather poor stand up in the UK going by the name Bing Hitler. Weird.

A Grisman version of Minor Swing that I don't seem to have heard before! Lovely stuff. I'm sure it is incredibly uncool to like this tune as much as I do, but I don't care : it seems to have some kind of magic in that I really have never heard what I would describe as a bad version of it. Really must learn it myself (though that might produce the bad version!)

No sign of any invites over at google wave so I may not have been allocated any. I will let y'all know if any do come through.

I haven't checked yet but I suspect I will have Google Wave invitations if anyone is desperate for one.

Does anyone recall where the *third* Giant Steps visualisation is on the net? Not the Meyer Levy one, not the youtube one - this one was a key centre visualisation done in flash. I can't find it anywhere.

Wonderful - Japanese is a great language for proper Pop Music. I have no idea what this is about of course.

Dating sites are getting more specialised - rather coyly advertised on TV. (OK, I know there are lots of speciakised dating sites, but this one seems to be a bordering on fetish - the TV ad makes no particular mention of the military singles aspect)

I do like Chuck Klosterman, but I also have to say that I can't get excited about all this Beatles stuff, particularly the later records which I have never really liked. I do like the early stuff, probably because it is all embedded in my brain from being played so much during my childhood. But I'd rather listen to Chet Baker.
