I chose "Double Fantasy" to cut the ribbon on the gray room stereo. A friend of mine in the pro music biz was kind enough to make me a custom copy with the obvious elisions. So I dropped what might be thought of as "Single Fantasy" into the CD player last night. Anyway, I planned to ask Manolo to turn down the volume on his video gaming units for a spell. As I walked into his suite, I was astounded by the game he was playing. With the sound off, the image of a small green alien pushing an ever-growing bundle of household items around a Japanese living room and the sound of Lennon's vocals bouncing around the house combined powerfully. "Watching the Wheels" works particularly well.
