I'm sitting here finally getting totally and completely caught up with my feed subscriptions, and I've got the Winter Olympics playing on the TV. Figure skating is on right now, so I'm able to read through the 100-plus posts from Robert Scoble that I've fallen behind on without any disruption. Almost, anyway.

A few minutes ago a Budweiser commercial came on with the title track from Push the Button by The Chemical Brothers as its theme. Then, only seconds later, I heard Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" playing as the accompanying music for one of the figure skating teams' routine.

I like it when good music finds me, and I don't have to go looking for it.

And while I'm on the subject, The Chemical Brothers picked up Grammys for Best Dance Recording and Best Electronic/Dance Album the other night. You might not have noticed, since those awards weren't worthy of the air time that was given to all the other crap they crammed in to the 3-plus hour event.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU , THANK YOU! For weeks I have been trying to find the title of that background music in the most recent Bud tv ad. I thought has it but they only have those formt he football season. Anyway, the music is so familiar I am wondering whether Chemical Brothers lifted it from somewhere, say North African music? I love it though and will now buy it. THANKS!
