Different direction: Last night my kid rented and we watched Across the Universe, which is a wonderful exploration of the '60s built around covers of Beatles songs.

Really great stuff, and many of the covers underscore what brilliant song writers Lennon, McCartney and Harrison could be. Even heretofore corny stuff like "I want to hold your hand" is suddenly exceptionally passionate and beautiful.

Brought tears to my eyes.

It's gratifying that my 18 year old kid thoroughly appreciates the Beatles.
