Can't get this tune out of my head. The glory years of trance, at least for me.  Of course, I grew out of it upon discovering house, but I like to return to this era every now and then.

Morrissey Interview and Performance on The Colbert Report

"The Mind of a Chef" - narrated by Anthony Bourdain feat. David Chang, premieres Nov. 9, 2012 on PBS

Episode List for Season 1 (via Eater National):

· Squeal Like A Pig - This unique travel/cooking series features Chef and Author David Chang making connections between food and nature, science, music, art, sports, history and just about anything else that he can stir up. In Montreal, David and Comedian Aziz Ansari try Wilensky's famous fried bologna sandwich. In the kitchen, David makes a "red-eye mayo;" his pastry chef shows how to make a salty sugary late night snack--the corn cookie ham and cheese. Anthony Bourdain narrates.

· Noodlin - Author and Chef David Chang visits a noodle factory in Japan; eats the best bowl of ramen in his life; and, cooks two incredible dishes with the instant ramen variety. Food Scientist Harold McGee explains how alkaline salts make ramen noodles unique. Anthony Bourdain narrates.

· Spain - In Spain, Author and Chef David Chang explores the streets of San Sebastian with friend and legendary chef Juan Marie Arzak. El Bulli's Ferran Adria talks about the current state of cuisine. David prepares a salt cod omelet, and in honor of Adria, he cooks a microwave sponge cake. Anthony Bourdain narrates.

· Memory Lane - Author and Chef David Chang revisits a ramen shop in Japan, where he ate while apprenticing at a restaurant in Tokyo. He also visits the Callaway Golf factory where, for the first time in the 14 years since he threw his clubs off a cliff, he hits a golf ball. Later, he prepares a cold Korean soup, naeng myung, that his mother prepared for him and his father when they went golfing.

· Rotten - David Chang travels to San Sebastian, Spain, to exhibit his experiment in rot: pork butabushi. His pastry chef shows that the best flavor in a banana cream pie comes from rotten bananas. Rene Redzepi cooks a "garbage plate" using potatoes left in the ground months longer than what is considered fresh.

· The Sweet Spot -

· Simplicity - David Chang visits a sushi master in Tokyo and a yakitori chef who has been grilling chicken for 30 years. In the kitchen, David makes a simple chicken noodle soup.

· So You Think You Are A Chef - Wylie Dufresne cooks carrot-coconut sunny-side up egg, Rene Redzepi cooks clam chowder and David Chang cooks a buttermilk apple dashi. This series dares to make connections between food and nature, science, music, art, sports, history, and pretty much anything else a renowned chef can stir up.

· Phresh Vs. Phrozen - This program addresses various theories of food preservation. In Japan, David Chang examines a technique of killing fish, called ike jime, that inhibits rigor mortis. In the kitchen, he cooks with space food, while his pastry chef makes a corn cookie using freeze-dried ingredients.

· Japan - David Chang travels from Tokyo to Kyoto to meet and eat with friends and to explore the different ingredients and culinary techniques of the eastern world. He visits a street market in Tokyo, a fish auction in Kyoto and finishes the trip at a Michelin three-star restaurant, Kikunoi. In the kitchen, he cooks yakitori--or Japanese grilled chicken.

John Lennon - Interview on the Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder (April 25, 1975)

John Lennon - (Just Like) Starting Over (Rehearsal)

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere alone

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Everyday we used to make it love
Why can't we be making love nice and easy
It's time to spread our wings and fly
Don't let another day go by my love
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Why don't we take off alone
Take a trip somewhere far, far away
We'll be together all alone again
Like we used to in the early days
Well, well, well darling

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere

An Idiot Abroad (Series)

Employing the classic 'fish out of water' template as the basis for this series, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant exploit (for lack of a better word) the truly unique Karl Pilkington on a tour of the New Seven Wonders of the World (sans the Colosseum replaced with the Great Pyramids) for the Sky1 travel documentary "An Idiot Abroad".  (For those in the States, the series is broadcast on the Science Channel.)  The strength of the show and the only compelling reason to watch it is Pilkington, and his utterances and thoughts do not disappoint.  Gervais and Merchant realize that there's no capital worth more than human capital, and we're lucky enough for them to share this one-off bit of humanity.

Below, you'll find and enjoy Episode 1 of Season 1.
