When I was a kid, I was going to be an archaeologist. Not just any archaeologist, but the most important one to ever excavate Egyptian sites (you know how kids are.) My daughter has the same archaeology bug and is interested in the same place. She's much more knowledgeable than I ever was however. She can tell you how mummies are prepared in quite graphic detail. Her knowledge of the Egyptian gods and goddesses is much more complete than mine. Imagine our surprise, when we found that Mummy: the Inside Story was coming to our local IMAX theater! And the combo ticket includes The Mystery of the Nile IMAX film and the Virtual Tour of Nefertari's tomb. And it will be here until July 31 so if we miss it, we've no one to blame but ourselves.
In music news: I wrote earlier about Nickel Creek, Ben Lee, John Hiatt, the North Mississippi Allstars and Bonnie Raitt coming here. Well, I just found out that in August, Lyle Lovett will be in town as well as Queensryche. I'll be attending the Lyle Lovett concert -- I can't wait. I just don't know what's becoming of this usually muscially barren wasteland.
