Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people.

No this is not SharePoint or Silverlight related at all.  Tomorrow is 09/09/09 and the Beatles, one of my favorite bands of all time aside from Green Day and Three Dog Night, are releasing there albums in digital format entirely remastered plus as a bonus Harmonix is releasing a special version of Rockband.  I can probably throw away $60 for the game, but not so much the money for the remastered tracks.  Growing up my dad was born in the 50’s, so his music was primary the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Turtles mixed in with Vietnam War Protest Music.  We never really listened to a whole ton of 80s pop or hair bands, so I missed out on one era and gained the music of his era.   I didn’t even know that Green Day existed until middle school/high school.  My first non-60s era tape was Ace of Base the Sign at Age of 13.  In the car on road trips wherever we went we sang such songs as “I am the Walrus” and “Love Me Do”.  So when the anthology came out I was stoked, but we couldn’t afford the box sets.  So I had to watch tv and listen to the radio for the specials.  When my family went to New York City for the first time when I was in my teens we saw the spot where John Lennon died.  It was one of the sadder moments in life.  I hated it when I found out George Harrison had died.  I have to say though John Lennon is one of my favorite Beatles, but not for the reasons everyone would think.  I have the “Imagine” album and “Past Masters Volume 1” and I have to say his passion for Yoko were what sold me.  My absolute favorite song of his is from “Imagine” called “Oh Yoko”.  It’s one of my IPhone Ringtones.  Some people bash the album, but I like it because of the emotions it invokes.  Although, I have to say some of my favorite Beatles Only songs are “Here Comes the Sun”, “Norweigan Wood”, “When I’m 64”, and “I’ve Just Seen a Face”.  No these are not the only Beatles songs I love just about everyone as much as I love Green Day.  If you guys want to post your favorite Beatles albums and songs go right ahead.  It’s a day of celebration.  The boys from Liverpool are back.
