    I saw THE coolest thing the other day!
    Captured! by Robots. Anyone ever heard of this guy? A full band of robots playing music behind the singer, plus shtick. Really cool show. Kind of like ANIMUSIC in real life. I think he's out of San Francisco. Check it out if you get the chance.
    Chuck E Cheese ain't got nuthin on this guy.

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    Nope, but does anybody know if the new Wil Smith movie I, ROBOT is actually based on the Isaac Asimov short story? Cause from the previews, it sure doesn't look like it.

    I saw the robot band on CNN a while back. It was pretty wild sounding and looking.

    Oh, man, was I pissed when I saw that trailer. It looks like it has nothing to do with that or any Asimov stoery I have read.

    There is also a news story of a robot conducting a human orchestra.
    I think I saw it on the BBC site.
