Whiter...


...Shade of Pale by Procol Harum is one of my favorite songs.  I have an I Pod Shuffle and I Tunes picks my songs each day automatically.  When the computer picks a Whiter Shade of Pale it just makes my day better.  Northern Exposure was one of my most favorite TV shows.  John Corbett, the fellow who played Chris the DJ, had to disposed of his biker friend's body he used his catapult to fling the casket into the lake.  The director went into slow motion and allowed the casket to spin in mid air for a long time with a Whiter Shade of Pale playing the background.  For me is was one of those defining moments in my life.  From then on I decided to not attend funerals or memorial services.  First of all the dead person will never know if I was there or not and second, any funeral or memorial service would be anti-climatic after Chris' memorial to his biker friend.
