The reason this blog is called "I Me Mine, I Me Mine, I Me Mine"

Why not a smile source tonight? I've been watching Concert for George. Yes, that's a good source. It took place in Royal Albert Hall on Nov. 29th, 2002, a year after we lost George Harrison in this world. I've meant to watch it for a while, because Harrison and his music make me feel better -- and I'm not the only one by far. The fans with the banner that reads "My Sweet George" are good signs of that.

This is also maybe the first time I've really looked at Dhani Harrison, George and Olivia Harrison's son, and yep, no paternity test needed there. Uncanny. I hope he smiles like his father, too.

I've smiled through most of the concert I've watched so far -- I 'm taking a break with about half an hour to go, to go back online for a bit and to listen to some of the radio broadcast of Monday Night Football (play well, Chargers). "All Things Must Pass" came close to making me tear up. I wouldn't have been surprised if I had.

This is reminding me of Dave Chappelle's Block Party, which I saw in a theater in 2006 and which made me feel better. Celebration through music -- sometimes I forget to do that, but music will eventually remind you that you can do that.
