James Bond-with more cowbell

My parents came in yesterday, but they weren’t coming until the afternoon, so I had time to clean (thankfully).  So I watched a little James Bond in the background–The Spy Who Loved Me, to be more precise.  I love James Bond, a little action fluff is good.  But in the beginning of the movie there’s a ski chase scene and they play the Bond theme–but it’s all 70’s sounding, with a little bit of funk and a lot of cowbell.  What’s up with that?  And why did I never notice before?

In other news, yes my parents are here.  I have been proved wrong–we’re having a pretty decent time.  My dad managed to configure our wireless so that he can tap into it with his laptop, so that is nice.  He is happily checking out his computer and Latin newsgroups, and just renewed his Univerisity of Berlin newsgroup subscription.  Iain configured our Wii and he is now playing Super Smash Bros. online with other anonymous players.  We are such a digital family, but it’s working out really well.  I showed them the Tom Baker Says website and we watched Dr. Who bloopers, which is how geeks like us bond.
