Roll Over Beethoven

Not much news over here. Spent most of the day renewing my passport (can’t believe 5 years go by that fast). Got home, and a great friend called me, lots of catching up.

When I got off the phone, I was chatting with my wife about the call. She met most of the Plone folks at the two conferences she attended with me. But she can’t remember everyone by name. So I searched for a picture of one of the guys we were talking about.

A few hits returned, I chose a picture from Flickr. She thought I was talking a different long-hair guy. I guess my description was really bad.

But the funny thing, and what prompted me to write this entry, was the stunning similarity between that picture, which I chose at random, and a certain comics character I just loved when I was young.

Long-hair guy, it’s been a long time since I saw you playing that little piano of yours live. New Orleans, 2005 if I recall. Was great to hear from you through my friend. I hope we can meet again soon.

And, I wonder if you love Beethoven too.
