Lyrics:

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called “Yellow”

So then I took my turn
Oh what a thing to have done
And it was all “Yellow”

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
And you know,
You know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
‘Cause you were all “Yellow”

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all “Yellow”

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
And you know
For you I’d bleed myself dry
For you I’d bleed myself dry

It’s true, look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you do

Shuttle Discovery Launches on Mission STS-133


Space Shuttle with American FlagWe missed the opportunity to watch a live shuttle launch while visiting Florida for Lotusphere 2011. The mission was delayed, but today Discovery launched. If you have never had the thrill of watching it in person, I can tell you it’s an amazing thing. Growing up in Tampa, I had the privilege of watching the launches from my back yard. Yes, from Tampa, 100 miles away! Space ShuttleI can remember watching Columbia, the very first mission, launch in 1981. I can also remember watching Challenger. While I could not be there for the launch in person today, thanks to the Internet and streaming HDTV, I had the best view possible without being there. Check out the ongoing live video stream of the shuttle mission.
You can also get cool images and information at the NASA website.

In honor of the few remaining shuttle missions (the program ends in 2011), I used it as the theme for these images in a project I’m working on.

The Notes Guy In Seattle will be in Orlando! Meet me at Lotusphere 2011.


Yes, like a bad Michael Jackson song, I’ll Be There. Watch my blog for details on how to find me. I hope to meet up with y’all. You can also follow me on twitter (davehabz) for more immediate info on my whereabouts while at the conference. Or send me an email and we can make a plan. When in doubt, look for me by the piano or basking in the sun by the water (I’m a Gator. It’s what we do.). No, I won’t be singing.

Now let me spin an oldie for you. Just close the blinds, click the youtube below, crank it up and..”I’ll be there.”
