The Infinite Variety of Music: Leonard Bernstein, et al
An interview with Father Bede and two musician friends becomes a profoundly moving musical excursion through the deep truths and feelings of the various spiritual traditions represented in their South Indian Christian-Hindu ashram. Through the musical gifts of Russill and Asha Paul, we hear and sense for ourselves how the many different names and descriptions of God are reflections of a single reality. ´´There is a wonderful underlying unity´´, says Father Bede, ´´but it´s beyond words. We´re all trying to move beyond the words and the languages to the one reality itself, beyond all.´´ The music takes us to a direct experience of the sacred unity beyond cultural differences. 1.

Michael Nesmith´s eclectic, electric life spans his star-making role on The Monkees, his invention of the music video, and his critical contributions to movies, comedy, and the world of virtual reality. Above all, his is a seeker´s story, a pilgrimage in search of a set of principles to live by. That search took Nesmith from a childhood in Dallas, where his single mother, Bette, invented Liquid Paper, to the set of The Monkees in Los Angeles, to the heart of swinging London with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, and to an unexpected oasis of brilliance in the Santa Fe desert, where his friendships with Douglas Adams and Los Alamos scientists would point him toward the power of the infinite and the endless possibilities of human connection. This funny, thoughtful, self-aware book is a window onto an unexpected life, inflected at every turn by the surprising candor and absurdist humor of an American original. Listening to Infinite Tuesday is like stepping into the world of Michael Nesmith, where something curious is always unfolding, and where riffs on everything from bands to dogs to the nature of reality make for an endlessly engaging journey. 1.

Created a now staggering 15 years ago in 1990, in the days before aggressive marketing, before pop as a tabloid staple, before infinite music channels and pop´s new 24-hour nerve centre, the Internet, Take That seduced the nation. Next year the group is reforming, albeit without Robbie Williams, with a number of sold out concerts in the Summer of 2006.
