    OT: tropical midi files

    <HTML>I've changed my home page to include news of our Tahiti cruise win and would like to put some tropical music in the background. Right now, I've changed it from "Simple Gifts", an old Shaker hymn (my favorite), to "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" as sort of an ironic thing. But I'm looking more for Jimmy Buffet midi files that are free to download. I've spent the last hr. looking at free midi sites and can't find anything tropical, nevermind and Buffet. Anyone know where I can find them?

    And on a totally unrelated note, hubby and I went to Blockbuster to rent South Pacific yesterday afternoon (It was pouring and they were mobbed. NOT a fun trip.) They have no copy on their shelves of South Pacific (the original. I know the new one's not out yet.) Is it even avail. on video?
    (We ended up with Meet the Parents and Love Letter.)</HTML>

    <HTML>I know it is available on video, becuase I used to pop it into the VCR for some of my residents at the nursing home where I work. Don't know where you can find it, but it is out there! :-)</HTML>

    <HTML>Try an independent video as Blockbuster is more interested in turnover of the current hits...find one that specializes in classics or musicals. Or the library!?</HTML>

    <HTML>Thanks for the suggestions. I thought of Amazon after I posted this message (duh!). They have the one from the 50s and the new one w/Glen Close and Harry Connick Jr. is coming out in Aug. Didn't see it in movie theaters so I wonder if this is direct to video. Haven't decided if I'll buy the original (The new one will be out after Tahiti.)
    Unfortunately, we have no independent video stores around here. Blockbuster put them all out of business (remember, we're a small town. Offer us 5 nights for the same price the independent is charging for 1, and it doesn't bode well for the little guy.) The next town over has a Blockbuster and a Hollywood right on our border.</HTML>
