"Alas, for those that never sing,
But die with all their music in them". - Oliver Wendall Holmes

So I went to see the new Rolling Stones movie, "Shine a Light" in Imax. I loved it.

The music sounded great. They played some things that were very different from their regular play list and performed some of them with some of my favorite people, including Buddy Guy......dam right I got the blues!!! Martin Scorsese added old interview clips that were woven in beautifully and were quite humorous.

What REALLY MAKES ME CRAZY though, is when the music is rockin, there is a room full of people and NONE OF THEM ARE MOVING.

IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME? I watch something like this and hear amazing rhythms being played......I have to move. You don't even have to like the Stones. I jump up and down in my seat. My feet are bouncing. My head is swaying and nodding. I look around. Everyone else is still.

So, what would you be doing?
