The link you sent said it is going to be rebroadcast 2 x again later tonight on the internets. I tuned in just at the very end-- looked like Pete Seeger & Bruce had just finished singing--Beyonce came & closed it with America the beautiful. I like that song so much better than the anthem (bomb theme).
I wish I could have caught the Seeger performance... wearing his rainbow hat.....pushing 90 & still a peacenik folk singer. Love it.

So many people feel in alliance with Obama, there is a real brotherhood a feeling of brothers & sisters & working together. This moreso than any president in my lifetime.

10PM just got home....I only got to see until about 3 PM..the last thing I saw was Shower the People ( John Legend and James Taylor...I love John Legend- he has such soul...and is an old soul...but seeing them sing together such a song...I hummed all night...)

Fran::
so true...I was watching the crowds..and people hugging and singing and linking arms....really struck me that people are coming together....and the aerials..WOW...but yeah...there is Something really happening...

Kellybelle::
Hey there lady...long time no see...I visited your blog earlier...and I really want to see that Ellison play...( I am working too much- too many weird hours...but I need to figure it out...) and Pearls- LOL....I saw your post...I was thinking about it at work tonight- and thinking I need to dress up for the Inauguration- what a great idea...LOVE it...
I will try to find the link to rewatch it and email you....( I really want to see the rest of it...I don't have HBO- but Time Warner was supposed to open up 602 to EVERYONE...yeah for real?? amazing huh?) I don't know about you - I am sooooo giddy...

( and I forgot to get more tissue...)

Thank you for posting the link to HBO! I didn't realize everyone could access it and I was mad that they had exclusive rights. (I don't subscribe to HBO). So glad to know I can see it after all.

I tried to post the Link the last three days..I hope it worked..I actually came home and could not get it to work- the Cable Companies were SUPPOSED to advertize that it was FREE and offer FREE HBO for the Event...it was very poorly handled...

( and I tried to access it...when I got home it did not work- it is supposed to be on again at 11:30PM- we will see if it works...I tried the webcast link....but it was not working....so I hope it worked better for others....so sorry)

enigma4ever said...

and yes, I will Liveblogg.....

I just caught it from where Usher and Stevie Wonder were singing. Missed the first part, but set it up to record the whole thing in a couple hours.

When HBO periodically sponsors these free days, they really promote it. Not this time. If it hadn't been for you blogging about it, I might've missed it.

THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME! Our day is almost here.

I am not sure it was on free here- I went to watch it at 11:30PM and I asked 6-6 to record it for me- ( in case I fell asleep) and NOPE it was NOT on here- and not on the schedule of the local HBO stations- but it was on the website...

So I am lucky I got to see at all on NEON- a local station here....

Something about the whole thing stinks....

( I am calling Timewarner tomorrow- I want to know how us poor - don't have HBO folk were and are supposed to see this incredible event...Obama would be pissed they did this...)

BUT it's okay cuz the main thing is the Inauguration...

DK we are soooooo close now....
