Béla Fleck / Edgar Meyer show audio files HELP!

[migrated from myspace blog]

I'm hoping someone stumbles across this and can help. A few years back I had downloaded a live Béla Fleck / Edgar Meyer show from (it's not there anymore) in lossless FLAC format:
Bela Fleck & Edgar Meyer
Benedict Music Tent
Aspen, CO

Apparently when I moved all my media to a new hard drive, it got lost, because I can't find the show at all.

If ANYONE has a lead on where I can find this recording in FLAC, please let me know.

Also, if anyone is aware of a recording of the November 2005 show in Mesa, AZ, I was at that one and it would be nice to have a recording of that as well.

Pushing Daisies and Blade Runner

[migrated from myspace blog]

What in the world could Pushing Daisies and Blade Runner have in common?
Valid question. When I was watching one of the Fall episodes of Pushing Daisies, there was a scene where the two main characters walk out of their respective apartment doors near the corner of what appeared to be a hallway. However, as the camera panned, the view was something like this.

Despite being well-lit, Blade Runner fans will immediately recognize this as the interior of the Bradbury Building in L.A., although it may be a little more recognizable like this.

This building has been used in quite a few movies, especially noir films...and now you're probably waiting on me to get to the point. Unfortunately I don't actually have one. It just caught me by surprise to see this building, which I'm most familiar with from the darkly-lit film Blade Rrunner, show up on the bright and colorful TV show Pushing Daisies (R.I.P. ...ironic).
