The Police Hell Freeze over Tour

I absolutely like the band The Police! I thought 'Synchronicity' was by far the best album they ever made and then they broke up. It had literary references about 'Sheltering Sky', and 'Wrapped Around Your Finger' made references to Greek Mythology! How cool is that. And the videos were very high in concept.
When they performed at the music award show, I thought that was the extent of their come back. But no, they are going to tour! What a great way to celebrate it then get their new CD. I thought they look a bit old, nothing like the youthful Police cd cover. Andy Summer and Stewart Copland were unique musicians. They had jazzy influence in the way that they play.
I am ecstatic that The Police are going on a new worldwide tour! I have never seen The Police on a past tour. But I've always wanted to see them perform. I saw Andy Summer recently on an old YouTube footage teaching the public a few of their classic songs. He wished that they reunite and looks like his wish came true. We want you to discuss the concert including all the I like the band so much!
In this new police cd you'll get literary reference to Lolita in 'Don't Stand So Close To Me'. Roxanne, and 'Every Breath You Take' which Puff Daddy remixed and cover in his own version.

Snow Crash

‘The Art of Innovation’ led me to ‘Snow Crash‘. I started reading it over the weekend and didn’t want to put it down. It’s very funny. For some reason, I latched onto this book. Maybe it’s because it talks about the Metaverse. Recently, I got into Second Life (SL). I need to do a little bit of research to find out which came first. It talks about people building houses in the virtual world. I can see some similarities between the Metaverse that Neal Stephenson renders and the world of SL. I think this book has influenced a lot of people and companies. For example, the book talks about goggled into the virtual world through the vision apparatus, a goggle. Hm…Google sounds a lot like goggle. Was the book the source?

I’m not a big fan of Sc-fi books, but once in a while a book like ‘Snow Crash’ proves to be readable. I’ve try William Gibson’s ‘Neomancer’. I didn’t make the leap into it yet. Maybe it’s too far out there for me to grasp. ‘Snow Crash’ seems very plausible. I remember, in my younger days, buying David Brin’s ‘Startide Rising’ because it had a cool cover of the man and dolphin. Uplift series
