I bought tickets today to attend an evening of John Williams conducting a selection of his film scores at the Boston Pops in June. You only live once, and I feel that if I passed on this opportunity it may not come up again and I would regret missing out on witnessing the event for the rest of my life. Much like when I was in person to watch the Muppets perform and they sung Rainbow Connection, when he conducts an orchestra to perform the Star Wars theme while I am in the audience before him, there will likely be geeky tears. While there, we are also going to check out the same orchestra perform a Pixar themed night. In honour of the city of Boston, I will also get in a bar-room brawl with some Yankees fans and ask a jerk if he likes apples.
