Real Life Inception

More great smart people that ask questions and go out and explore solutions.  I like to believe the more optimistic uses of what this ground breaking idea can actually do for people, specifically people with mental illness or other brain disorders and trauma, maybe even alzheimer's.  Just like the Professor X blog I posted, these could be some dangerous areas of exploration and the beginning of SkyNet's takeover.  Who knows? This is another great TED talk and some interesting questions to think about.

Dave Matthews Band Commerce City, CO 8/23-8/24/13

Colorado is a beautiful place and Denver is a great city.  We got the privilege to spend a weekend out there and got to experience a little bit of everything.  We saw the Red Rocks, saw Buffalo or Bison, went up a 14er, walked around downtown, experienced the crazy lightning and instant change weather, experienced 90 degrees and 50 degrees in the same day, got a little bit of altitude sickness and yes saw Snoop to the D-O-double G and the one and only DMB for two great nights.  The band was obviously a little rusty on night one or Snoop got Dave so high he forgot the lyrics, the jury is still out on that.  The first night was great though.  Snoop is such a performer and its amazing how many great hits he has and he rolled through them all while congratulating Colorado on their accomplishment of legalizing marijuana while smoking and throwing blunts into the crowd as only Snoop can do.  Highlights were: Proudest Monkey, Digging a Ditch, Granny, and Warehouse.
