We were browsing around our netflix last night and ran across The Buddy Holly Story. It had been a really long time since I'd seen it, but I remembered the roller rink scene at the beginning and the Crickets playing after Sam Cooke at the Apollo in Harlem. It's scary to me to think that I'm the same age he was when he died. I still can't believe how much Buddy Holly influenced rock and roll in his too-brief 22 years.

Looking forward to watching The Real Buddy Holly Story that Paul McCartney produced.

Favorite things

The fact that Netflix now has the first three seasons of my all-time
favorite cartoon available for my instant-streaming pleasure,
"modern art" at the SFMOMA,
music from Zumba class,
Shakira - WAKA WAKA - Esto es Africa

and how happy Tyler gets upon receiving a free Dr. Pepper.
