There is a great line in Glengarry Glen Ross when Blake tells Levene that “Coffee is for closers!” Last night I was far from a closer when it came to running, in fact I was much closer to a loser than a closer.
I briefly convinced myself that it would be okay to go into George’s for one beer, but almost as soon as I did I repeated the line “Coffee is for closers! Beer is for runners!” in my head and left.
I Took Out The Trash, Your Job Is To Take It
Being at home on a Wednesday for the first time in a month my trash can was “ripe” to put it politely. I was actually excited to take it to the curb and doubly as pissed when I arrived home last night to find that it had not gotten emptied.
At first I wondered if the delay was caused by Columbus Day on Monday. Some times the trash pickup is delayed by a day when a holiday occurs on a Monday. However, when I checked my neighbor’s can across the street I found out that their can had been emptied.
Looks like I’ll have a stinky carport for yet another week. Argh!
ITP Flickr Pic
I know at least one person who reads this blog can explain this horse’s behavior.
I drove by this horse at least three times and it was posed like this. When I finally decided to stop the car and snap its photo it dropped its head from the post for a second, and almost as if it knew that all I wanted to do was to take a picture, returned it to the post.
How Much Would You, Or Did You, Pay?
Being a fan of Radiohead’s work I am intrigued by their new CD release business model. As of yesterday the disc is available electronically at a price chosen by the buyer. Yes, that the price is chosen by the buyer.
Being way behind with my life’s chores I have not gone to download the disc yet. I am curious —
If you bought it how much did you pay?
If you will buy it, what do you think is a fair price?
I am thinking about something on the order of $6 – $8. Why so low? Because the band has eliminated many middle-men (cd pressing costs, some of the distribution costs, most marketing costs, retail markup) and therefore should not receive the going price for a CD sold in a store. I am not looking to steal music, but I am not willing to pay anything more than I feel is a fair price either.
I Am Going To The Clermont Lounge
It will probably surprise each and every one of you to find out that I have never been to one of Atlanta’s icons, the Clermont Lounge. One reason for this is that I don’t really care for strip clubs. Why would I want to go somewhere only to leave broke and teased? Another reason is that the Clermont is not exactly know for its “talent.”
Then why go tonight? Thanks to Rich I have been given a free pass to the Warm in the Wake / Pistolero show being held there.
If the name “Warm in the Wake” sounds familiar, it’s because that’s the band I “discovered” while in a used CD store in Gainesville, Florida only to find out that they hail from the Atlanta area. Back then I mentioned that the were releasing a new CD and that if they’d send me a copy that I would review it. My silence should tell you the outcome of that request.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
