Six Degrees of Separation from Paul Allen

I once told a friend that I thought that everything in the world could be linked
within six degrees of separation from Microsoft Co-founder, Paul Allen.

That very same week I read
in a gossip column that Paul Allen and Kevin Bacon were performing together on stage aboard Paul’s gargantuan yacht, Octopus.

According to (see …..,

“Six degrees of separation is the hypothesis that anyone on Earth can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances with no more than five intermediaries.”

There is a popular game called Six degrees of Kevin Bacon that expounds on that theory, basically that any actor can be linked through their film roles to Kevin Bacon,(see….

Inspired by those theories,  I’d like to propose a new game—Six Degrees of Paul Allen.

Obviously this game will have to be a little bit different, since Mr. Allen is not (yet) an actor.  So instead of linking one actor to another, or even one person to another, I will throw out a phrase, the name of a person, or some sort of thing,
and you can guess how that is related –within 6 degrees–to Microsoft
Co-founder, Paul Allen.

    Loved the Paul Allen Band video … absolutely hilarious! d3

  3. Hi, Dakini! I totally agree–Paul Allen and his band must have a great sense of humor to ham it up like that!
    Thanks so much for writing—I really appreciate it!!
    BTW–I’ve been trying to find an MP3 (that I can buy and download) of that song—or any song—by the Paul Allen Band, but haven’t been successful yet. I’m still hoping he’ll put out another album—we’ll see what happens! 🙂
    Thanks again, Dakini!!!!

    Saw the performance in New Orleans. The encore piece “Fatman in the tub” was the best. It was clean and crisp because of an outstanding arrangement. I heard rumors that there is a CD of the performance floateing around somewhere.

  5. Hi, Blaise!
    Thanks so much for the info—I really appreciate it!
    That was a great song, wasn’t it? I’ve been looking around for that CD or a Youtube of the performance that night, but haven’t had any luck. There are a few Youtubes on other bands that performed that night, but no Paul Allen Band (so far).
    (I’d also really love to be able to buy an MP3 of any of these songs—no kidding, Paul—what do you think?)

    So the encore song was Little Feat’s “Fatman in the Bathtub”—-
    What a great song—for New Orleans, especially! I’ll bet a dollar that Paul Allen has actually practiced that song with Little Feat–I’ve heard that he has jammed with that band a few times—so no wonder the performance that night was so good!

    I also really liked the slower blues song that the Paul Allen Band performed just before Purple Haze—you wouldn’t know the name of that one, would you?
    In any case, thanks so much for the info–I really appreciate the comment! Let me know if you hear anything more, ok?

    (BTW—Loved Pensees! 🙂 LOL!)
